If we all had to do group therapy for the church as a whole every denomination in the world this would be it. The syndrome to be celebrated. Have you ever read that Christ was flattered with people who had head problems? Never! He rebuke them! Yet, many have indulged in behaviors that God has forbidden. Satan offered Christ the world? But I believe many church leaders forget this part. Satan has offered them things and many of you have accepted. Success in ministry is laying hold of the truth not pumping up yourselves! Along with this behavior is the crazy fan clubs. God strongly rebukes of idolatry. What did you think this was? People have no business worshiping anything or anyone!
REMEMBER THESE TERMS… YOU WILL RECOGNIZE JUST HOW CRAZY THIS HAD GOTTEN OUT OF HAND. If there are any psychological issues to be had… It is PRIDE… IT WILL ARRIVE ALONG WITH DESTRUCTION!
Here are the three classifications
Borderline-Pathological … This is HIGH as it can get on the nut scale worshiping whatever the persons gives to you …they find worship. From a paper napkin to their selfie posted up near the individual!
2)Intense- Personal … This is what they call INTERMEDIATE… They actually believe that the individual is their soul mate. I see this so much until I believe often that many churches have mental health wards in the basement of the building
3)Entertainment -Social… This level is actually considered LOW… Just how far will they go to get your attention? This level isn’t always associated with clinical measures. But the sad part people are just enthralled at this foolishness…Would you believe they will wrap their whole lives around someone else’s. How deep it can get … I see it all the time . Here again, I see that sometime the behavior is encouraged in the world…but I see that is often embraced within the church.
All of this means is that they are missing a few links mentally this can comes to dangerous levels when they find out that they are not apart of the individual’s life. You are meant to be with them or death do you both part…
Think about the top Latin rising star Selena. ( Quintanilla) – Perez) assassinated by a so-called friend who was the President of the fan club for stealing… yet allegedly speculations or suggesting that she was also in fact obsessed with her!
In other words…Celebrity worship means these are signs that one might have “poor mental health”. Ego identity, prone to fantasies, and here is the bomb… always and I mean always out of touch with current events…Disassociation personalities disorder!
Yes, I am exposed to the fan club business but I know better no one needs to be worshipped. My call and commission is to turn the hearts of the people toward God not my celebrity status, steal God’s glory, or to enhance my current stardom to greatness!
I send the foolishness in the direction it need to be headed. The problem is too much is on the throne but God. We ministers of the gospel are not celebrities. Celebrities means you are celebrated. Christian values are supposed to be upheld with another kind of standard…instead the focus becomes enchanting, enticing calling your name and taking pictures REALLY? It’s okay with the pictures but only each ministers knows exactly what he or she real agenda is. Yet, the truth will be evident… and people are now looking at you instead of God.
I know and understand that some churches and Pastors have strong followings and that’s fine… and there is nothing wrong with it. But the danger is the higher you go so are the devils the rise with you or in inside of you. People have degraded being famous for more notoriety!
The true success in ministry is when the world power wants to leads you and you have learned to stay grounded in God!

LUNATIC… A WORD FORMED FROM THE LATIN WORD “LUNA”, THE MOON AND THUS CORRESPONDING TO THE GREEK WORD AND THE ENGLISH “MOONSTRUCK” APPLIED TO CLASS OF PERSONS AND “CORPORALLY” DISEASED WHO WERE BELIEVED TO SUFFER WHEN THE MOON WAS FULL INANITY, EPILESPY AND MORBID MELANCHOLY, WERE AMONG THE EFFECTS OF DEMONIAC POSSESSION. YET, THIS POSSESSION EXISTED INDEPENDENTLY OF THESE EFFECTS AND WAS A MORE DREADFUL IN CALAMITY. LUNATICS WERE EXPRESSLY MENTIONED IN DISTINCTION FROM MEN POSSESSED BY EVIL SPIRITS …Matthew 4:24, 17:15 (Tropical Bible)
More than most we still have fleshy Pastor leadership that love their fan clubs and entourages. Some are actually “jealous” of the Preachers of L. A. because it’s the world’s enticement and they feel they are deified enough! This is only reason for their criticism!
A lot of Pastors today looks just like the world and the delusional thoughts really are they are doing God’s will when its about showing off and self edifying. There is no difference with the nonsense we have made excuses about…including the flashy messy preachers with big heads and the fine Maybachs.
Materialism whether it’s physical or mental has destroyed the integrity of the leaders of the church. The church itself isn’t destructive its the “hot mess” of leadership today that is janky! I know where the breakdown is especially when the ego gets ahead of God. The responses sound weak and full of compromise.
Materialism is no indication that you are popular with God nor does it mean…you have God’s agenda or best interest at heart. Many so-called leaders suffer with the disease of seeking fame and fortune. But try to hide it quietly when you the fruit of who they are comes bursting out of the seams.
What a crying shame because the spineless creatures today honestly think they are persecuted but the real persecution and worst enemy being in a disciples for Christ is keeping self in tact and dying to the flesh daily! What persecution? Many are mere results of sowing the flesh and reaping corruption!
When other leaders are rebuking celebrity and flesh driven Pastors … Trust me, they want it too! And don’t think some Pastors don’t get flattered if underwear is thrown at them. Satan likes you pumped up before you get that final blow to head or the heart!
The singer from Maroon 5, Adam Levine had a terrifying moment onstage when what they call a “super fan” came up to hug him. He was terrified but a lot of people should have been unemployed! It has happened too many church leaders, it has happened even with President Of The United States!
Okay, I have a totally different spin on what could have happen to him with those few seconds open for her to get that close. Is super fan another cute name for mentally ill or a nut job? I am an advocate for helping everyone who misunderstands mentally illness. But what do they call the ones who have deadly intent and you see the monsters talking to them. The dismal response is what takes me there…You know someone is struggle to keep their mind in order… When the danger comes someone always has to say what they saw before the danger happened. Too late… if your family or loved ones are subject to someone else’s craziness.
I am at my “wits” end at what we face today in the church. The oddest thing that people actually believe it wont go wrong and it can! I have personally been in too many situations when the behavior is more than off and is lightly accepted. You can see the trouble coming while other ignore just deadly it can get.
The graveyard is full of people murdered by individuals with some serious mental health issues. What I come to realize that many organizations today are lacking the professional training dealing with individuals who are mentally imbalanced
Today my main concerns is the lack of security in anyplace that I have to attended. I don’t take odd behavior and shake it off as nothing. Often time people believe that no being offensive toward the behavior will ward off just how crazy it can get in a matter of seconds. Unless you have experienced the dark side of being the object of someone’s affection you wont really grasp the seriousness of just how nuts a person can get! I have publicly shared dealing with what my family went through dealing with “stalking”. I understand the ramifications when you are not watchful and careful of what is in your midst or even your inner circle.
Even in ministry, I have seen the dark side and danger of when you can get carried away with being more of a celebrity instead of a leader. It’s not always your fault that someone decides that you will be their main focus, but I often say this… Ministers have a great responsibility for making sure they remain humble and responsible in their character as well.
Unfortunately, we often get short-term memory when it comes to the not so good side of ministry! We want to get super spiritual in our responses while Parishioners look in agony at the response time.
Yet, too many leaders are too afraid to be firm and don’t want to offend anyone yet, our lives are in danger sitting in the church. I can’t tell you how much questionable behaviors that I knew should have been halted. And they too got too close just like the ‘SUPER FAN AKA LUNATICS”!
God is love but he gives up common sense ALONG WITH WISDOM. When the behavior is questionable they are the ones that need to stay close to doors to be escorted out of them and to get the help that they need! This is in no shape, form or fashion to attack people who have mental health disorders and the lack of care for them. Being in the pews sitting next to me should be my least worry but because there is such a strong influx of addicts and mentally unstable individuals my safety is a definite concern!
There are some who are too dangerous regardless of how mentally ill they are …have no business being allowed to roam freely when you can see the struggle in their minds breed trouble! When you in leadership one of the most unpleasant side is that we have to make tough decisions not run from them. Confrontational is not going to die down when a problem is huge in the churches of today! It’s not popular standing up for what is right all the time! Keeping the secrets of just how bad it is wont make the evil go away!
Regardless if there is no help for the individual we don’t sacrifice the safety of others playing it SAFE! Being concerned about how anyone is going to handle the matter is far cry from brining body bags out for the coroner. How much more is liberation will there be when we are always subject to the devils? The real sad part is that…too much craziness is ignored all in the Name of God.
