Title
Masochism and the Distortion of Servanthood
Abstract

The concept of servanthood is central to the Christian perspective of sanctification. An evaluation of current views on servanthoood and suffering was conducted and the possibility of distortion of servanthood into an expression of sublimated masochistic tendencies was considered. A psychoanalytic perspective of masochism was presented with a view toward the unique aspects of Christianity which may lead to, or encourage, the expression of masochistic behavior.
