Episode 123 - Clickbait Christianity: Manipulative Marketing or Effective Evangelism?

In Episode 123, Keith, Justin, and Darcy sit down to discuss the marketing of Christianity and what happens when a church community no longer works for an individual. What are the ways that books and sermons use controversial or “sexy” titles in order to attract attention? What is the line (if there is any) between staying relevant while still offering deep substance? Should one be gotten rid of in favor of the other, or do both have their distinctive purposes? Is leaving an unhealthy community the same as quitting when the waters get rough? What is it like a leave a deeply-rooted faith community, and how can one navigate that space safely? Listen to find out what we think! In the beginning the guys talk about embarrassing TimeHop notifications, and how social media often acts as a virtual journal (albeit, without the notion of privacy). In the Giants in the Sound segment, the guys listen to hardcore supergroup Nothing Left’s new album, Destroy and Rebuild, and they give their first impressions. Finally, the guys end the show by giving their final thoughts. Always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast. Let us know what you think!
