Is a narcissist born with personality and behaviors dictated by genetic make-up; or is a narcissist created by life events and people around him? Not being a psychiatric professional, I can only surmise. Perhaps it is a mixture of both. Either way, a self-absorbed pastor focuses on himself and not on God’s kingdom.

“If nineteenth-century politician Lord Acton is correct in his statement, ‘Absolute power corrupts absolutely,’ a church leader with sole power over a church body that generously gives millions of dollars to the church stands in grave danger of becoming all about himself and protecting his power and compensation. Do those actions translate into narcissistic tendencies?” (Taylor, Joy S., A View from the Pews — The Inside Story of a Broken Church, 2022, Lily of the Valley Publishing, Santa Claus IN, p.49.)
