Take Me to Church? Half of Pastors Believe Faith Will Become Online-Only Experience
The key phrase Hozier sung at the Grammys last Sunday from his hit song, "Take Me to Church," will grow outdated for many, nearly half of Protestant senior pastors believe. Today 47 percent agree that at least some people will experience their faith exclusively through the internet within the coming decade.

Is the prospect a problem? Theologically no, according to the nearly 9 out of 10 pastors (87%) who told the Barna Group it is "theologically acceptable" to seek "faith assistance" or "religious experiences" online.

"Today 47 percent agree that at least some people will experience their faith exclusively through the internet within the coming decade."

"experience their faith exclusively through the internet" ??????
This must be Roman-Arminian style faith which is a human faculty according to the free willickers.
