    Narcissism can be addressed from neutral and objective angles.

    If we had a Christianity sub-section, then there wouldn't be a problem.




    I'm a spiritual man and I keep my beliefs to myself.
    If you believe in God, then you should know that God favors those with acumen who speak with wisdom and a tongue known to all men.

    You should also know that prophets lead a normal life and spoke normally with everyone else. There was no mention of religion to each thing they did or have to talk about. No pontifical I, or fixed views. That would've been ridiculous.


    I understand your passion about your religion, but against your intentions, your arguments may come off as bigoted and dogmatic. Feel free to follow the path you see fit, however. We live and learn.
    I appreciate your concern, but I don't think I will deny my Lord in front of men least of all on TypoC where no harm can come to me for doing so.

    The problem with most of your subjects is that you tackle issues and thoughts as a Christian and present them to a heterogeneous audience.

    With this put aside, I can say that I share some of your concerns, though they're not manifested in the same way nor come from the same place.

    Attention seeking behavior is widespread and stems from different reasons depending on different individuals. It is destructive, unproductive, and the thirst never withers. I don't want to see any of my children competing for the spotlight for the sake of illusive and short-lived fame. I'd rather they pursue higher purposes, serve their raison d'être in their authentic self, and give to the world if they can as an act of gratitude.

    Verily, this is one of the reasons why I had a focus to marry a woman content and grateful in nature, with great wisdom, a greater nurturing side, and even greater empathy. If I am to be the source of the forbidden instructions, she will balance that with her empathetic judgment.
    I share your concerns as well, including what you mention about religion. A Christian perspective is one way to view and to address these concerns, but hardly the only one. I find I often make the same choices or exhibit the same behaviors as those coming from quite different perspectives, which I see as just another illustration of what we have in common despite our significant differences.

    It is most unfortunate that not every parent will care enough to have a healthy relationship with their child and become their healthy model. Furthermore, society's shaming is hardly an incentive to progress and evolve.
    I agree about the importance of parents, family, and home life. My main complaint about broader society - schools, media, etc. - is not that it fails to promote what you or I would consider sound and healthy values, but that they so often seem to undermine them, often very aggressively.

    This is the subforum for discussion of matters spiritual and philosophical. There is more to spirituality than religion; more to religion than Christianity; and if we pull in philosophy, even more beyond all of that. Members are welcome to post from their own personal religious perspective, but that is neither universal nor required here.

    What an odd comment, especially as I have yet to see anyone ask you to do so.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Well, the source material that is the basis of the OP's argument is strongly Christian slanted so the argument is quite predictable and to steer it towards secular causes would be a fruitless endeavor.

    I assure you there's no big deal in my approaching this topic as a Christian.

    What an odd comment, especially as I have yet to see anyone ask you to do so.
    Because a Christian started a thread and spoke Christianese to other Christians in his OP and a TypoC member and a mod were both like:

    You were not told either of these things. People simply expressed different perspectives on the question, which is their prerogative, and is actually encouraged. If you are looking for persecution, you will need to look elsewhere.
