High Self-esteem’s Blowout

- Understand Self-esteem -

Paul J. Bucknell

High self-esteem has had a blowout, and its guts are littered all over the highway of life, but don’t dare tell modern parents who raised ego-proud kids. Just check out “high self-esteem” on the web and note how all the sites have changed their opinion, openly admitting to the 30-year mistake.

High and Low self-esteem

Too bad they cannot change the views of the moderns who drank its poison!

I have been speaking against this pseudo-psychology for decades now but who wanted to listen? Now, new evidence has given change to the views of the psychologists. So dare you listen to them now? Do you think they have the privilege to play with the minds of your children?

God's expectations


The deeper problem with self-esteem lies in its attempt to persuade people to perceive their lives without the Lord. They want us to be preoccupied with our vision of ourselves rather than God’s. They don’t care what God says even if there is a great judgment coming! Neither do they care that it is the ‘poor in spirit’ who possess the kingdom of God (Mat 5:3).
Again, most are saying, “Blessed are the rich” or “Blessed are the rich in spirit” but Jesus states the opposite. Who is right, Jesus or the world? Certainly Jesus is. But who will hear?

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3).

Here are some articles that we have written in the past on the destructive nature of high self-esteem.
