In 2012, Jefferson Bethke achieved every Millennial’s dream: he became “Youtube famous.”
His spoken word video “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus” went viral, garnered more than 30 million views, and spawned a New York Times bestselling book. Since then, Bethke has continued to use social media and the internet to build his brand and proclaim his faith. He has also written a new book, “It’s Not What You Think: Why Christianity Is About So Much More Than Going to Heaven When You Die,” that seeks to inspire Millennial Christians by overturning modern misconceptions about Christianity. Here we discuss how technology–from the internet to social media–can be a force for good or evil in the hands of Christians.
