The Bible uses the terms “evil” and “wicked” to describe behavior we might call “psychotic,” “narcissistic,” “sociopathic.” Consider this issue further in this presentation that aims to bridge Biblical teaching and contemporary psychology.

For Further Consideration
Here are links to the three words we used in the description of this presentation: Sociopathy, Narcissism, Psychosis.
The title of this presentation is called The Wicked. It’s part of an ongoing series on Mental Health and the Bible.
In the Bible, there are several words used to describe people and the things that they do that God considers wrong or immoral. In society, there are also words used to describe people and the things they do that society considers wrong or immoral. The problem is that the words God and society use are often different, though they are talking about the same things. Also, the behaviors are viewed in different ways. What I want to do today is connect what God says and what psychology says so that, when we read the Bible and watch the news and see what’s going on around us, we can connect the Bible with what we’re looking at in the present day. That’s our small contribution at LifeResource Ministries – to help people integrate their Christianity with contemporary life.
