I love the way Patrick Weaver’s explanations are so clear and to the point.
He obviously knows the narcissist behavior from experience, as do we.
This man of God is on point: toxic behavior is poison to anyone who allows toxic people into their life. Stop the cycle!
The definition of insanity is to continue to do the same thing, expecting different results.
Narcissists have no ability to truly repent, because they do not view themselves as being wrong.
Where there is no real repentance, there can be no reconciliation.
They are master manipulators, and yes, some do call themselves Christians — but aren’t.
You will know them by the fruit. Close the door and walk away. It’s the only path to healing and your own restoration.
This is a great post to help keep the right perspective from Patrick Weaver Ministries.

“Narcissists love to wound and swoon. This sick cycle is what I call a “narc-nique” — a narcissists technique.
This narc-nique of sometimes being cruel and sometimes being loving and kind, is purposefully intended to create extreme confusion in their prey — a confusion that psychologists call “cognitive dissonance.”
In other words, this demon will cause you to have a double mind and be unstable in all your ways… because the brain can’t handle the two contradictory realities — cruelty and love, side by side.
This narc-nique not only creates extreme confusion, it also causes stress and trauma in the narcissists prey.
If you’re not praying attention it will lead to brainwashing and an emotional “narc-addiction” — which will cause you to obsess over trying to earn the narcissists forgiveness for another hit of their demonic love.
Listen beloved, a narcissist spirit is strategic, cunning, crafty and crazy. Narcissistic traits can be dangerous because, at their worst, they will lead a person to destroy others to satisfy the lust of the flesh (2 Timothy 3:2-8).
There are only two ways to deal with a narcissist spirit beloved…walk away and walk away. Now I know some struggle with walking away from a companion of the devil but be clear, the Bible said, “Resist the devil and he will flee from you,” not, “cooperate with the devil and he will change.”
Some think that their assignment is to be a demon whisperer but trust God, that is not your assignment:
“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people”. 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
When the devil is using a willing participant to willfully, intentionally and purposefully destroy another to satisfy the lust of their flesh, you don’t stay and play… you walk away and pray. And don’t look back.
Carry On! ”
