"Narcissism Goes to Church: Encountering Evangelical Worship" by Monte Wilson. An excerpt: "Modern American Christianity is filled with the spirit of narcissism. We are in love with ourselves and evaluate churches, ministers and truth-claims based upon how they make us feel about ourselves. If the church makes me feel wanted, it is a good church. If the minister makes me feel good about myself, he is a terrific guy. If the proffered truth supports my self-esteem, it is, thereby, verified."
Prophecy in 2 Timothy 4:3 fulfilled--even unbelievers are verifying that this is so.
...after their own lusts they will heap to themselves teachers having itching ears.
