Dr. Rodney Kennedy Deals With the Demonic Spirit of FANDOM in Many Churches Today — Daniel Whyte III Adds That Along With Pastors Taking Names and Cell Phone Numbers From Women in the Church, Many of Them Married, the Demonic Spirit of Being a FAN or GROUPIE of the Pastor NEEDS TO CEASE, For This Has Been a Well-Known, Strange Problem in the Church For the Past Thirty Years or More Where Women, Even Wives of Husbands in the Church Get so Infatuated With the Pastor They Are Willing to Give Him Their Personal Cell Phone Number Without Their Husband’s Knowledge, For Him to Call Her at Any Time and Have Been Willing to Break Their Marriage Vows to go And Suck the Bishop’s or Pastor’s Penis, Swallow, Have Sex With Him Any Time he Calls and Then go Back to Their Husbands and Kiss Him on the Mouth and Wipe Her Mouth as Though She Has Not Done Anything Wrong as the Bible Says in Proverbs 30:20: “Such is the way of an adulterous woman, she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.” Husbands Who Have Been Beaten Down by the Pastor, Society, Their Wives, and Other Women to the Point of Not Seeming to be a Man Anymore, NEED TO RISE UP AND STOP SUPPRESSING YOUR GOD-GIVEN JEALOUSY FOR YOUR WIFE AND FAMILY Because You Have Been Taught by the Pastor, Society, and Your Wife it is Wrong For You to be Jealous When God Says HE IS A JEALOUS GOD: “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God” (Exodus 34:14), and Say Firmly to Your Wife, ‘I DO NOT WANT THE PASTOR OR DEACON OR SO-CALLED CHURCH LEADER CALLING YOUR PHONE OR TEXTING YOU–PERIOD! AND I WANT COMPLETE ACCESS TO YOUR PHONE.’ All of This Damnable Foolishness Needs to Cease! Again, LET’S BE CLEAR: NO PASTOR, NO DEACON, and NO SO-CALLED CHURCH LEADER SHOULD HAVE THE PERSONAL CELL PHONE NUMBER OF ANY WOMAN OUTSIDE OF HIS WIFE AND HIS DAUGHTERS AND CERTAINLY SHOULD NEVER TEXT ANY MAN’S WIFE FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER, OR ANY MAN’S DAUGHTER FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER, OR ANY SINGLE WOMAN IN THE CHURCH OR OUTSIDE OF THE CHURCH, PERIOD. And No Woman, especially a Wife Should Give Her Telephone Number to the Pastor or Deacon or So-Called Church Leader, and All Women Who Are Infatuated With Their Pastor or Some Other Minister in the Church, Who Are Groupie Fans Need to Cease Being That. YOU PEOPLE HAVE LOST YOUR RIGHTEOUS MINDS AND THAT IS WHY SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES IN THE CORONAVIRUS PLAGUE, AND THE PLAGUES KEEP COMING. For in the Words of Leonard Ravenhill, ‘Instead of the pastors and the people in the church PRAYING, they are PLAYING and they are STRAYING.’
In a media-saturated world filled with choices, some people have turned to what is known as “fandom” to find identity, meaning and purpose for life. In churches, some have substituted being a fan for being a follower of Jesus. Fandom has filled in the gaps created as fewer people seriously follow the teachings of Jesus.
“Fandom” may be defined as the state or condition of being a fan of someone or something. Fandom may include persons, teams, fictional series. The collection of such fans is considered a community or subculture. For example, there’s the Breaking Bad Fandom, the Harry Potter Alliance, or the Fighting Tigers of LSU.
What I’m suggesting here is that many churches now take on the identity of fandoms — much like sports teams and movie franchises.
Scholars in communication, media, cultural and rhetorical studies have produced a wealth of material about the nature of fandom. Yet fandom scholars have not paid much attention to the relationship between churches and fandom.
