Notes & Transcripts

A Colorado pastor wrote a book describing how he has become disillusioned reading the social media messages of high-profile pastors he respected. Pastor Brady Boyd, says he fears the social media has simply became another venue for hype which is creating a church full of consumers. Boyd says the trend dates back 50 to 60 years, when pastors decided the way to attract people was to package the Gospel and the church into an easy to consume product. The Colorado pastor says his goal is to display a passion from having been in the presence of God, which is exhibited in prayer, reading Scripture, and providing spiritual direction to those in need. He says the message he wants to convey in his book is that what matters to God is not what you do, but who you are.
