Unmasking the Domestic Abuser in the Church

No, Mr. RASN, You Aren’t God

Isa 14:13-14 You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north; (14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’

I haven’t sorted out how to add RASN to our sidebar so newcomers will know that it is an acronym for Revilers, Abusers, Sociopaths, and Narcissists. Anyway, there it is – RASN’s.

Now, you will agree that these kind are of their father the devil and so it is not surprising that they also say in their heart and mind “I will make myself like the Most High.” They really do in so many ways believe themselves to be gods.

Well, here are some humbling words for them (not that they will really be humbled, but it will do the rest of us good to hear these things)- No, Mr. RASN, you are not God. You are a creature, created by God just like all the rest of this whole creation. And as superior and godly as you think yourself to be, here is a blow to your arrogance: you are not capable of creation. You think that you are sooooo smart and soooo superior, that your mind is soooo vastly above others. But in fact, you have never once created a single object, a single thought, a single song or a single scientific law.

Think it through – man never creates. Not even the most brilliant human mind can create. Man cannot create a the most magnificent piece of music. He can only discover what is already there. Man cannot create theories like relativity or quantums (whatever those are) – he can ONLY discover what God has already created. Oh, I suppose there is one sense in which man can create – he can “create” that which is evil, unrighteous, ungodly and wicked. But when it comes to positive things – he only discovers. When that ancient guy in a bathtub yelled “eureka”! he hadn’t created a single thing. He only discovered another aspect of God’s creation.

So, guess what Mr (or Miss, Ms, Mrs….whatever you say nowadays) – you aren’t God. So stop acting like you are. In fact, anyone who acts as if they are God is, as the true God says, a fool.

Speaking of fools – I watched a video on youtube of Dr. Les Carter in which he deals with the fact that narcissists are….stupid. Dense. Foolish. Oh, as he says, they can have lots of knowledge and be quite intelligent in regard to data, but wisdom is an entirely different thing. Wisdom is the ability to discern and apply the moral and ethical rightness of things that are known. One, for instance, may boast about how amazingly intelligent the makers of the atomic bomb were – but were they wise? RASN’s are incredibly stupid. I bet you’ve seen this in play. These beings who act as if they are gods do the stupidest things that very often are like them sawing off the branch they are sitting on.

Satan then, though amazingly crafty and smart, is stupid. He raged against Christ and sent Him to the cross, where the Lord Jesus conquered the devil once and for all. Sin is insanity. It is choosing death over life. And life is something only the Lord can create and give. To reject Christ is to choose eternal death. Indeed, the fool has said in his heart, there is no God.


Beware the Traditions of Men


A RASN is not a Christian


  1. Tank you so much for defining RASN.
    God is using you mightily. Your book on WISE AS SERPENTS I think touched my cousin’s cold heart shortly before she died suddenly at age 70. She had a PHD. I gave her your book and she was shocked at how you “ knew her life” and she came back to the Lord. ❤️🙏🏻

    This post is a classic…100% truth and reality.

    The world worships intelligence, science, great feats of technology, and those who create them. This post shows that there is NOTHING without God. The air we breathe, the elements that make up everything, creation itself. The worthless mind knows nothing of this. God keeps them “stupid.” The worthless mind desires only to have power, control, and the ability to manipulate others.

    Truth and reality are not things those with a worthless mind can EVER obtain. They think those of us “tied” to truth and reality, are stupid. They believe they are “truly” free because they don’t positively care about others. The bible tells us that due to this they are actually slaves….eternally. 2 Peter 2:19 “…they themselves are slaves of depravity—for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.””

    1 Cor 13 “If I speak in the tongues a of men or of angels, but do not have love, I AM ONLY A RESOUNDING GONG OR A CLANGING CYMBAL. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I AM NOTHING. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, b but do not have love, I GAIN NOTHING.”

    This is the life of the worthless-minded loser.

    They are nothing
    They gain nothing
    They are wind bags….all the words they speak are garbage

    John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy…” That’s it. Their entire life is ONLY to harm. Did you want an intimate spouse to share the love and burdens of life with? RASNs are only here to STEAL from you. Did you want children who would grow up and mature and share friendships as adults with? RASNs will only KILL that hope in you. Did you want a pastor with wisdom and biblical knowledge led by the Holy Spirit? RASN pastors will only DESTROY you.

    This is all hard-earned truth. For those of us who “get” it without trying to soften the blow, we seem jaded. It’s actually sweet to those of us who need to find this message and see that others have gone through the lies and come out strong and sure at the other end. It was so hard and painful for many years, but God never left me. He won’t leave you either.

  3. It exists

    Interesting post, yet again!! Thank you Pastor Crippen. What you & Dr. Carter have honed in on is a foolishness the Bible speaks to over & over & over again – yet I did not truly understand-until the life-sucking immersion married to a full-blown cruel & duplicitous RASN. I remember many a time thinking “SERIOUSLY???!!!” in what the RASN did or said & expected me to silently, reverently…comply with – and WORSE how his fan club (aka blindly following “believers” at the church, family, friends, etc.) bought into with the same blind foolishness. It was jaw dropping at best. I called it like it was – the RASN was their own god…. which surprisingly, they didn’t deny yet crashed down on me for saying …. to the point they referred to themselves as only “God and they” could do xxxx…. yes… they were fully entitled to put themselves up there equal to our Lord.

    Many people don’t think it will cross their paths, yes the level of the RASN’s sheer evil – stupidity – foolishness – on a whole new level is for others to endure ……. until it does cross your path…. At that time, you will know it when you see it…. and praise God there are sites such as this and other truth tellers such as Dr. Carter that call it exactly how it is.
