Jesse Carey writes a very important piece on The Table, the blog of the Biola University Center for Christian Thought. In it he explores how, in our modern society, the media may be more important than the message.

The medium, not the message, is what has meaning.
“Too many Christians have fallen into the trap of trying to conform their messages into mediums that are incompatible with the Gospel’s real content.”
