Historically, pastors were powerful leaders in
their communities—today they are
marginalized and ignored. The influence of the pulpit has been replaced by the
media, celebrities, and special interest groups to such an extent that the
world considers the
Church irrelevant as an agent for cultural change.
Preaching was once considered the hallmark of
the Church. It was pointed, prophetic,
and personal. Today, it is too often oriented toward success, self-improvement,
and self-fulfillment. Biblical principles are more often tailored to meeting
rather than transforming culture by being salt and light.
The result has been an ever-widening gap between private faith and public
Kairos Journal prays and works toward
the day when the Church is once again the moral
conscience and prophetic voice to the nation. In that day, the biblical pastor will
reclaim his unique role as the God-appointed gatekeeper to the spiritual and moral
standards of the nation.
The aim is not rule by clerics but the reign of
Christ and His Word in the hearts and
minds of the citizenry. This is the prayed-for, preached-for Awakening. It
liberty and uses that liberty to saturate the nation’s consciousness with godly
and Christian virtues. Kairos Journal is founded in a moment of
crisis—for such a time as this—
to hasten an age of cultural revival in Christ—for such a time as that.
