对世界基督教协进会的声明

世界浸信会联盟标志

BWA Executive Committee Resolution 1967-08.1

该声明不是以决议的形式提出的。分发了一份建议给世界基督教协进会的信函副本。决议委员会建议也向欧洲教会理事会提交一份类似的声明,由Goulding提交,Tuller和Payne在即将在克里特举行的中央委员会会议上向世界教会理事会提交该声明。

MOTION was made, seconded, and carried, that by unanimous consent the General Secretary be authorized to transmit the following communication with covering letters to the World Council of Churches and the European Council of Churches:

The claim of the Roumanian Government that there is religious liberty in that country is supported from time to time by statements made through World Council of Churches publications in which it is declared that there is religious freedom for all Christian people in Roumania.

On two accounts, particularly, the Executive Committee of the Baptist World Alliance would point out that the above statement is not in accordance with the facts of the prevailing situation.

  1. Baptists in Roumania are restricted in the use of many of their church buildings to certain hours on Saturday evening and Sunday morning. This restriction is in contrast to the freedom granted to other Christian churches in that country in the free use of their buildings.
  2. The Baptist Union of Roumania is a member of the Baptist World Alliance and the European Baptist Federation. For a number of years permission has not been granted for Roumanian Baptists to be represented at Alliance or Federation meetings outside of their country. This appears as an act of religious discrimination against our people in view of the fact that representatives of other Christian churches in Roumania are regularly represented at international assemblies.

In order that the claim of religious liberty in Roumania might be made fact the Executive Committee of the Baptist World Alliance would ask the prayers, advocacy and influence of the World Council of Churches in redressing the acts of discrimination and restriction against Baptist people in that country.

Beasley-Murray urged that the BWA representatives make it clear that these were only two of the restrictions suffered by Baptists in Roumania.
