bicrim: (my antidrug)
So, I was doing some reading on the debate between Cessastionists and Continuationists regarding modern charismatic prophecy and what level of authority it can hold to church dogma. I was having some trouble understanding why the Cessastionists were so opposed to new prophets (aside from policital reasons, which make perfect sense) and then I saw a chapter heading and it all became clear--it was called The Closing of Canon. Suddenly, I understood. It was like after book 7 came out and all the fanfic writers could write without fear of being Jossed, and then JK Rowling starting doing interviews with more information about the backstories and futures of her characters. There was great debate in fandom--was the Canon closed with the last book, or are her interviews also canon?

Anyway, it made me laugh. It also made me think of the Bible as source text that could be used in a fandom, and that made me think of Bible fic, and that made me think of Bible slash, and oh my god, I did not need to think of that. I am just laughing at myself over here.
