How to Deal with Narcissism in the Church

While the term "narcissist" may not be explicitly mentioned in the Bible, certain verses in the New Living Translation address behaviors associated with narcissism. Proverbs 27:2 encourages humility, stating, "Let someone else praise you, not your own mouth—a stranger, not your own lips." Philippians 2:3 advises, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves." Additionally, Proverbs 16:18 warns against pride, saying, "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall."
