WHEREAS, the spirit of expediency is increasingly apparent in the utterances of certain leading government statesmen with respect to the current strong position of the United States in non-recognition of the present communist governments of Cuba and China, and

WHEREAS, certain western nations have recognized officially the communist government of China, and

WHEREAS, the National Association of Evangelicals previously has gone on record as recognizing that “the Gospel necessarily condemns every naturalistic philosophy of life,”

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the National Association of Evangelicals strongly supports the present United States Government policy of non-recognition of the communist government of China; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we strongly oppose any move by our government which would seem to give any credence to, recognition of, or legitimacy for the present communist-controlled government of Cuba.
