A Gospel awakening needs to occur in the life of Christians and in the Christian Church. There is no doubt that the problem of narcissistic spirituality is thriving throughout the evangelical community.

Why you may ask?

Because the reality is that we are consumed with ourselves. We are consumed with our own good works and our own clean lives. We are absorbed with how to become better leaders and how to build bigger movements. Our focus is always on our own achievements and our own merits. The more that we do, the more accepted and worthy we feel. This is the way many Christians and churches operate and how they measure success. This is narcissistic spirituality. This is the disease that is infecting many Christians and churches.

So what is the cure?

How do we solve this problem?
