The Gospel of Narcissism

Osteen’s sermons all begin with a self-empowering chant from believers. “This is my Bible,” it goes in part; “I am what it says I am. I have what it says I have.” But there are legions of dead  — now confined by definition, it’s true, in the hated past — who come bearing the testimony that the Bible is not actually about you.
