Climate Change an Ecumenical Catalyst Says WCC Head
The leader of the World Council of Churches (WCC) believes climate change is a catalyst for ecumenical unity of all churches. Dr. Olav Fykse wrote in the latest issue of the Ecumenical Review, “In a very disturbing way, the climate crisis brings us together as one humanity. Therefore, it also brings us together as one fellowship of believers, as one church.” He added, “We are called together to show signs of what it means to be one humanity” (Ecumenical News International, 8-13-10). The WCC, a socio-political and religious left-wing organization, continually seeks to rally churches of all theological stripes around a common social or political cause for the sake of unity, yet God’s Word always points to sound doctrine as the true basis of unity in Christ’s body.
