Representing the Gospel in an Age of Media Outrage

February 6, 2015

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.

Picture the shouting heads on so many cable news shows.  Outrage is on the menu every day.  Outrage, not the news item du jour, actually is the meaning.  The reason for the outrage changes, but the outrage itself is the constant.

The medium, not the message, is what has meaning.

He states:

“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.”

Fascinating read.
