Unmasking the Domestic Abuser in the Church

Perhaps the First RASN? – Cain

1Jn 3:12 We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous.

Gen 4:3-5 In the course of time Cain brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground, (4) and Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat portions. And the LORD had regard for Abel and his offering, (5) but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. So Cain was very angry, and his face fell.

What fueled Cain’s murderous rage against his brother? Abel’s deeds were righteous and the Lord had regard for his offering. Cain’s offering was rejected. Cain, like Diotrephes (see 3 John) craved to be first. He demanded to have his ego fed. He was evil and his brother was righteous. So he killed Abel.

Cain, I suppose you could say, was the first narcissist (besides Satan). He was driven by self-worship, a vacuum of empathy, a profound sense of entitlement and superiority, and when that diabolic mixture met a righteous man who was approved by God, murder was the predictable outcome.

Cain would not confess his sin, even when directly confronted by the Lord. RASN’s as you know, are never wrong, never to blame – it was all Abel’s fault, it was all God’s fault. The punishment the Lord put upon him was excessive – just ask Cain and listen to him moan and demand to be pitied.

RASN’s are characteristically and intensely envious, jealous people. They regard themselves as gods and refuse to share the glory they insist is theirs with anyone else. Not even with God. This is one reason domestic abusers so often sabotage their victim’s successes. They cannot tolerate praise going to anyone else. That praise, by the way, may not even be real – but the RASN will imagine it to be so.

I suppose this is the reason Satan hates the Lord and the Lord’s people with such intensity. “I will be like the Most High” is the devil’s demand. You see it in the description of the Antichrist given in the book of Revelation. Bow down and worship his image, or else.

And sure enough, RASN’s are children of the devil. Jesus said so Himself.

    Wow. This makes it real to me. Right out of Gods Holy Word. I never saw it like that but it’s true. The the first Narc.

      Tracey – the Bible as so much to say about evil, about narcissists, revilers, sociopaths and abusers, but until our eyes are opened to the existence of this darkness, we just don’t connect the dots. It’s like we have to have a wakeup moment when the lights come on and we can say “aha! Now I see it!”

    So true and classic! From the beginning the first born person (that we are told of in the bible) was the stereotype of the evil one himself. Yet most churches never discuss it or really examine WHO these people truly are.

    Over and over the bible describes them perfectly. And adds that this is why the times we currently live in are so bad….because there are so many of them. They are in positions of authority at a time when technology can be used in unbelievable ways. (Remember, if it has electrical capability it can be hacked. ANYTHING electrical….. our bodies included.)

    They are all the same at their heart… evil humans who want power, control over others, and the ability to manipulate. It’s easy to understand how the holocaust could happen when many of these worthless ones get into powerful positions. And when those with a conscience think something like, “Well he/she has always been nice to me.” Refusing to acknowledge that evil is being done to innocent people.

    It’s not a mystery then that this same, but worse, future is in store for us according to the book of Revelation.

    It will be through the use of technology, frequencies, medication, control over food and even air. Plus, all the other substances they put in these things. The horrors will be astounding. But remember, God has a plan and it will good for his people. He will keep us and deliver us, and it will be for the absolute annihilation of those who are WILLINGLY destroying humanity.

    Like the original worthless one (the devil) and all subsequent evil ones, they are against God, humanity, the earth etc. All are antichrists. The devil EASILY uses these evil ones to do his dirty work by helping them control the narrative of all mainstream media, technology released to the public (keeping much hidden) and many other things. They are deceived and desire to be this way. And they LOVE what they are!

    These worthless ones think there is no way they can lose with all their powerful tools and that EVERY base is covered to have control over the earth as well as humans themselves. God knows all their plans and he laughs at them. At the perfect time He will destroy all their seemingly indestructible systems with no effort whatsoever on His glorious part. He is the creator of everything and He does NOT take lightly those who come against his creation.
