A strong voice for evangelicals around the world says Christians should expect some big changes in the world’s religious landscape this year.
Rev. Johnnie Moore has worked behind the scenes with the US administration and other world leaders, including recent meetings with Saudi Arabia’s crown prince and other leaders in Muslim countries.
He tells the Religion News Service we’ll see changes in America’s intersections with faith, along with some global transitions, dynamic alliances, and evangelical growth
For example, Moore pointed out a few days ago on Twitter that persecuted Christians in Egypt are beginning to see some positive signs from the government there.
Moore, who’s been called “a modern-day Dietrich Bonhoeffer,” serves as a commissioner on the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, president of the Congress of Christian Leaders and an informal spokesperson for the evangelicals who advise the Trump administration. He is the founder of the KAIROS Company, a media relations company representing many influential Christian leaders and organizations.
In his interview with RNS, Moore highlighted the transition of power taking place in multiple historic institutions. Whether politically, academically, or theologically, Moore recognizes the power dynamic shift as “many older millennials will jump their Generation X siblings in being selected for those positions.”
He even feels historic institutions no longer carry the level of dominance they once had, citing the “digital age” as the cause for the major shifts.
“The organizations will continue to hold major sway but a different type of sway, which will largely be determined by how they adapt,” Moore said.
