    Jesus was so full of himself he said you must eat his flesh and drink his blood or you have no life in you.

    That is the epitome of narcissistic.

    He was always doing things to draw attention to himself. No wonder he was despised!

    I dare you to be as narcissistic as he is. See where that gets you!

    I'm very angwy at Jesus!!!:mad:

    Hard to judge a man until you've walked in his shoes.

    I think that is kind of what Jesus was getting at. Eat his words, live his life. See Jesus as the example to follow.

    Give up everything, place total faith in God. Basically become a holy man. Walk about the country talking about how good God is relying on the folks you meet for support. Pretty tough act to follow. Always assumed that's what a real follower ought to be doing.

    Paul however gave people an alternate to this life as a religious hermit. Just accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. Accept that Jesus did all of the work for you.

    Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

    Quite the opposite, in my opinion.

    It’s pretty easy to pass judgment on another without taking the time to understand what he’s experienced.

    What more difficult (and takes a bit of self-discipline, in my experience) is to not succumb to the ego and pass such judgment.

    It isn't selfish if the way to happiness is ultimately dependent on coming to God trough Jesus. It would be the most loving thing in the world.

    A quote form CS Lewis on the subject

    If so then you're saying he is the king of narcissism, and if you admit he's the king then you shouldn't be talking about him like that. I mean, unless you're a duke or something.

    'Angwy?' Sounds like Daffy Duck. Why are you still flying the flag? I do not consider this over the top hyper hyper meaningful in any discussion about Jesus.

    What's up?!?!?!

    No. This part was added by the romans who wanted to make jesus a religion. it's a sacrifice.

    Anyone with a YouTube channel is 100x the narcissist you claim Jesus is, and doesn't really have room to judge.
