Recently I had a most interesting
conversation with a man who had been
pastor of a church in Czechoslovakia;
up until the time Hitler and his Nazi
legions invaded that unfortunate lit
tle land. At present he is pastor of a
Czechoslovakian Baptist Church in
( Richmond, Virginia. He told me that
K' many of his former co-workers have
been imprisoned by the communists,
and have been tortured and “brain
washed” in an effort to force them
to renounce the Christian Faith. Nev
ertheless. they have proven steadfast
and true to their Saviour.
Since that time there has come to
my mind some advance publicity for
the World Council of Churches (a
front organization for the National
Council.of Churches) which is meet
ing in Evanston, Illinois this summer.
Who do you think is going to repre
sent the churches of Czechoslovakia at
that meeting? These courageous min
isters of the Gospel who have not
with-held from their Lord their last
full measure of devotion? No indeed!
The men who will represent commun
ist Czechoslovakia at Evanston this
summer are themselves communists,
who come here with the blessing of
their government, and who may he
trusted to do all in their power to
make this meeting of the World Coun
cil of Churches a sounding board for
communist propaganda. Frankly, it is
beyond my power to understand how j
any American churchman can extend
the light hand of fellowship to a
communist, especially when that man,
professing to lie a Christian, has tak
en the side of atheistic communism
against men who count the Gospel of
