according to the when it's convenient uber-religious you, god knows the truth but yet you continue to lie all the time. both you and god know you didn't see me sitting in a "local bar" and overhear me gossiping about your in-laws financials to a group of friends. so why did you claim it happened?
I've had this evidenced to me by others more than once. While other people put on Christian airs, they have intentionally berated me, decided not to forgive me, etc. I cannot worry about that or follow that path. I have to keep striving to do what is right in the eyes of #God, not what is popular and favorable in the opinions of mankind.
I always come back to this... I pretty much feel it applies to almost ANY religion, really.
Leonard Ravenhill (1907 – November 27, 1994) was an English Christian evangelist and author who focused on the subjects of prayer and revival. He is best known for challenging western evangelicalism (through his books and sermons) to compare itself to the early Christian Church as chronicled in the Book of Acts. His most notable book is Why Revival Tarries which has sold over a million copies worldwide. He was a close friend of pastor and writer A.W. Tozer.
Christian narcissist - christian behavior is easy to fake & many in the church are naïve & gullible & are particularly vulnerable to the MANIPULATIONS & deceit of the narcissist. The church is a prime hunting ground for narcissists, with little real accountability & significant opportunity for attention & promotion. Narcissists are able & willing to adapt their behavior & words for the purpose of promoting their image & will use organizations, such as the church, to accomplish their goals.
