We have all seen and heard the term “Gaslighting” in many articles and interviews of late. I want to establish and define this term. I believe that there are many who are being Gaslighted, yet are completely unaware of this tactic.
I was one of these people.

Gaslighting, an elaborate and insidious technique of deception and psychological manipulation, usually practiced by a single deceiver, or “gaslighter,” on a single victim over an extended period. Its effect is to gradually undermine the victim’s confidence in his own ability to distinguish truth from falsehood, right from wrong, or reality from appearance, thereby rendering him pathologically dependent on the gaslighter in his thinking or feelings.
As part of the process, the victim’s self-esteem is severely damaged, and he becomes additionally dependent on the gaslighter for emotional support and validation. In some cases, the intended (and achieved) result is to rob the victim of his sanity. The phenomenon is attested in the clinical literature as a form of narcissistic abuse whereby the extreme narcissist attempts to satisfy his pathological need for constant affirmation and esteem (for “narcissistic supply”) by converting vulnerable people into intellectual and emotional slaves whom he paradoxically despises for their victimhood. Because the gaslighter is himself typically psychologically disordered, he is often not fully aware of what he is doing or why he is doing it.
The term is derived from the title of a 1938 British stage play, Gas Light, which was subsequently produced as a film, Gaslight, in the United Kingdom (1940) and the United States (1944). Those dramas vividly, if somewhat simplistically, depicted some of the basic elements of the technique. These may include:
- attempting to convince the victim of the truth of something intuitively bizarre or outrageous by forcefully insisting on it or by marshaling superficial evidence;
- flatly denying that one has said or done something that one has obviously said or done;
- dismissing the victim’s contrary perceptions or feelings as invalid or pathological;
- questioning the knowledge and impugning the motives of persons who contradict the viewpoint of the gaslighter;
- gradually isolating the victim from independent sources of information and validation, including other people;
- and manipulating the physical environmentto encourage the victim to doubt the veracity of his memories or perception.
In the play and films, for example, a deceitful husband drives his wife to near insanity by convincing her that she is a kleptomaniac and that she has only imagined the sounds in the attic and the dimming of the gaslights in their house, which were actually the result of his searching for her aunt’s missing jewels.

Gaslighting is used by Satan against God’s people
I have been “Gaslighted” and didn’t know that this psychological tactic was being used against me. People from my own family who are not Christians, nor are they Conservative thinkers, have bombarded me with despicable accusations of being “insane” and in dire need of help.
As much as I would attempt to just shake this off, it remained in my mind and played back like a broken record. It was only when the Lord exposed this satanic attack to me that I was able to fight against it with the Word of God.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).
Satan knows what works. Why should he strive to use new weapons?
