WHEREAS atheistic Communism continues to dominate vast areas of the world and through fear influences decisions in all nations, and

WHEREAS, while Communism promises freedom and progress it actually degrades and oppresses the people it controls, and

WHEREAS missionary work has been stopped or hindered in many lands and is seriously threatened in many other places by Communism, and

WHEREAS we are deeply concerned for the freedom of all men and for the freedom of the gospel around the world,

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that we reaffirm our opposition and resistance to Communism and communistic aggression wherever it may occur,

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we commend our government for every evidence of resistance to Communist efforts to extend its enslavement of free men,

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we encourage our government to expose before world opinion the totalitarian nature and oppressive methods of Communism to the end that those lands not yet under Communist control may act to prevent the loss of their freedom.

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we encourage every effort to penetrate the curtains of Communist intolerance with the gospel of Christ, that those who now sit in darkness may see the Great Light.
