Church and State in the Modern Age: A Documentary History

By J. F. MacLear | Go to book overview

American missions and all other missions, thus realizing self-government, selfsupport, and self-propagation in the Chinese church.

(2) To enthusiastically take part in the "Oppose- America, Support-Korea" Movement, [and] . . . carry out the patriotic program. Every local church, every church body, every Christian publication must implement the "oppose-America help-Korea" propaganda and make [it] known to every Christian.

(3) To support the Common Program, support the Government land reform policy and support the Government in the repression of anti-revolutionaries, obey all Government laws, positively respond to the Government commands, and exert every effort in the reconstruction of the nation. We want to be more alert, to resolutely reject the blandishments of imperialism, to assist the Government to discover and punish anti-revolutionary and corrupt elements within the Protestant church; to resolutely oppose the secret plans of imperialists and reactionaries who wish to destroy the Three-Self Movement; also encourage and spread the movement in each church and Christian organization and denounce imperialists and antirevolutionary evil elements.

(4) To increase patriotic education, greatly enlarge the study movement in order to increase the political consciousness of Christians. Finally, we call upon all Christians to continue to promote and enlarge the campaign to secure signatures to revolutionary documents and firmly resolve to make effective the Three-Self mission of the church, and with the highest enthusiasm welcome the unlimited, glorious future of the People's Republic of China.
