From Liberal Protestants, A Theology Of Silence


JewishPress Logo

According to Thomas Ogden, a Methodist professor of theology at Drew, “The WCC’s Geneva offices were controlled for many years by leftist ideologues. By colluding with Marxist regimes, fixating on regulatory politics, fantasizing about various liberation theologies, fostering illusions about world anti-capitalist revolutions, and advocating some forms of sexual liberation, the WCC has defined itself in ways that evangelicals (and good Orthodox and good Catholics) cannot in good conscience participate.”

Indeed, the WCC may not speak for anyone but its well-oiled public relations apparatus. This means Jews will find many members of mainline Protestant denominations who do not automatically hew to the Geneva position. We can and must give ourselves the voice denied us by the WCC by reaching out to our Protestant neighbors and making our case directly to the people.
