Jayapataka Swami: The Lord doesn’t personally take a part, except if His devotee is being threatened. But we all owe everything to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and this is the reality. We cannot live without sunlight; you don’t provide it. Kṛṣṇa provides it. Similarly, He sees to the maintenance of everyone. Eko bahūnāṁ yo vidadhāti kāmān – one person maintains everyone else. So, the atheists are very envious, they think the Lord is preoccupied in admiration of Himself. But He is the source of everything. And if someone commits blasphemy or offences to Him, He doesn’t personally take a role in that. He has agents, that give people their pious, their impious results. And so, if one is envious of the Lord, they get punished. He doesn’t want that; He would rather have the people be uplifted. But to teach them, people are punished according to their activities. So, since they steal from others, cheat others, then they get the reaction for their bad karmas. If they give charity, if they help others, they get good karma. If they engage in devotional service, they get delivered from this material world. If they engage in persecuting devotees, and if they are envious of the Lord, then they stay in this material world life after life. That is what they want, they don’t want to be where the Lord is. I don’t know why you accuse the Lord of being a narcissist?
