The commoditization of spiritual content


One reason why people leave the church without leaving their faith is they believe what the local church offers them isn’t significantly different from what they could get with Itunes and youtube.  The currency of the church must shift down the spectrum from knowledge to love.  Immediately people will object by saying we can’t cast away knowledge because we will end up becoming ignorant and futile.  I’m not arguing that we cast away knowledge.  It isn’t an all or nothing thing, just that we need to rebalance things to the point where people feel a tangible connection with others.
