NY Times article about the elimination of Narcissistic Personality Disorder


So you think psychology is a unified, “scientific” field? Take a look at this article in the NY Times.

5 of 10 Personality Disorders are likely going to be eliminated from the DSM – Diagnostic Statistical Manual – the “bible” for psychiatric disorders. The most well-known one is NPD or Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Think about this for a moment: the world’s terminology is not working. Their labels are not accurately describing the so-called disorder. So, they re-name it and re-classify it. Meanwhile, all of the insurance companies and drug companies are depending upon these diagnoses for their very big businesses to thrive. What is a field like psychology to do without an absolute standard like God’s Word, the real Bible?

Does God’s Word change? Does God ever re-name or re-classify our pride, sin, or idolatry? No, never!

I think it’s sad that Christians rely upon the world to label problems rather than reading and relying upon God and His Word to tell us the truth.

Narcissists are prideful, self-absorbed sinners who are failing to love God and others (Matthew 22:37-40). Jesus addressed this problem quite often in His day and His solution remains the same today. God’s Word never changes.
