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!
