Recommendation Concerning World Order And Peace

1. Because we must have a renewal within our consciences of the basic incompatability of war with the moral principles and purposes of Christianity and because we need desperately to have new aspirations for world peace, we urge upon our people not to abandon the ultimate goal of peace and not to surrender to the inevitability of war as the only possible solution of international disagreements. We further call upon the President of the United States and upon those who determine American foreign policy not only to “keep open the door” to peaceful negotiations, but also to pursue aggressively every course that will lead us to peaceful settlements of international problems.

2. We recommend that our churches give serious consideration and study to all of the means being employed to promote world peace and that we give as Christians our prayerful support to the work of the United Nations Organization.
