The Narcissitic Gene: The Preacher's Kid

The Narcissistic Gene: The Preacher's Kid

What do you know about your pastor's kids? Are they anything like their narcissistic parents? What can I say about PK's better known as, "Preacher Kids"?  Often times, the term PK's or "Preacher Kids" is used in a descriptive way and as a stereotype. PK's are viewed as the "perfect ones" and/or the next future leaders . When in fact, most PK's are disassociated with the church. Yes-you read that correctly. Most "Preacher Kids" are rebels against the church and their own parents. The REAL question that we should be asking is: What are the real reasons why preacher kids leave the church? Several reasons why some PK's leave the church is this:

Preachers’ kids who leave the faith may do so for a variety of reasons. Many preachers’ kids are deeply hurt by the way church members treat their parents. Young people see the anger and conflict that can arise in even the best of congregations, and they conclude that the “religion” these people profess can’t be real. Young people see these conflicts as hypocrisy. They then begin to question their own faith. Preachers’ kids are often under a lot of pressure to be perfect, or at least to act like it so they won’t disgrace the family and the church. So they try to live up to everyone's expectations, and this can lead them to practice the very hypocrisy they see in others. Especially in smaller churches, the pastor's family is put on a pedestal with everyone watching their every move.
Did you read the above statement? Other reasons why PK's leave the church is this: What person in their right mind wants to be associated with any organization where their narcissistic parent is the authoritarian? Did you know that the person who you refer as your "spiritual father " or "spiritual mother "is abusive to their own child? First off,  "Preacher Kids" knows first hand how hypocritical their parents are. Most black narcissistic parents won't show their true selves in public, let alone in church; but the church platform continues to increase their narcissistic behavior anyhow. What upset's "Preacher Kids" the most is the fabrication, falsification, manipulation and pretentious ungodly ways of their narcissistic parents.

Most PK's don't want to be the next in line in the passing of the mantle.  Oh no-PK's wants truth, love, and healing like most of us who believe in the Gospel of  Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
No wonder most PK's leave the church- can you blame them?
