Abstract

(1)A world assembly of Christians for justice, peace and the preservation of the natural world should be convoked. (2) Mankind finds itself in a crisis today, the catastrophic climax of which probably still lies ahead of us. That is why decisive action is necessary. (3) The crisis is visible in the three topical areas of justice, peace and nature. Ethical demands on conduct in these areas capable of attaining consensus and political materialization do exist.

A legal order that is politically effective worldwide should be demanded
