  Narcissism: The Root of All Hypocrisy in the Theological Psychology of Jonathan Edwards
■ 概要
  Jonathan Edwards traced religious hypocrisy to narcissism, revealed in signs such as an overriding concern for emotional, mystical experiences rather than moral life and character. Self-centeredness also leads the hypocrite away from the realm of objective truth and rationality. Therefore, the religious hypocrite embraces a customized theology, fashioning a deity and a religious life that suit him. In light of Edwards's analysis, the mystical and psychotherapeutic trends of the contemporary religious world can been seen as encouragements to narcissistic religious hypocrisy.
