God is narcissistic

by

God. If he were real, he would be the poster boy for narcissism.

I mean, just look at the stories about him: He creates the world, then demands constant praise for doing so. For billions of years (so far) after doing so. Not just praise, but outright worship! Never ending.

Then, if someone doesn’t provide the eternal, constant adoration he demands, he will punish them eternally. In the most cruel manner he could dream up.

He created the Universe for himself, alone. No one asked him to do it. If he hadn’t, no one would have ever been doomed to Hell. Most humans would be infinitely better off by never having existed. And that’s if you ignore the pain and suffering that goes along with being alive.

Obviously, God as described by believers would be mentally ill. Undeserving of admiration.  Worthy of contempt and pity.

I think narcissism as a diagnosis is being kind. What would God’s complete psychological diagnosis be? I did do a quick search and didn’t see that anyone has ever diagnosed his problem. But they should. And then figure out what that means about those inclined to worship him.
