The World Council of Churches

Its Further Apostasy and Socialist Leanings

Missionary David C. Bennett, D. Min.

If you are a fundamental Bible believing Baptist you already know the World Council of Churches (WCC) is an apostate organization composed of apostate religious denominations. As Bible believing Baptists we need to be aware of what is happening in the world of religion for these happenings do affect us and our ministries for Christ. The following report only further solidifies that which you already know of the WCC.

The following report was taken from the Internet site of the World Council of Churches 25 March, 2003. Emphasis has been added by the editor (DCB) and is designated as such.

Che Guevara's daughter condemns unjust trial in Miami

The daughter of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Dr Aleida Guevara March, speaking yesterday at the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva at the invitation of the World Council of Churches (WCC), condemned as "deeply flawed" the trial of five Cubans in Miami, Florida, USA. (Emphasis added) The five were charged with accessory to murder and spying after infiltrating an anti-Cuban terrorist group based in Miami. In her presentation, Dr Guevara March, a paediatrician practising in Cuba, said the trial proceedings had flaunted the basic legal rights and norms due to accused people under American law.

Dr Guevara March's trip to Geneva is part of a wave of protests against the irregularities of the trial and the harsh sentences ranging from 15 years to life. She was accompanied in her visit to the Ecumenical Centre by Cuba's ambassador to Switzerland and a delegation of Cuban officials. (Emphasis added) "We ask the World Council of Churches to be in solidarity with us, to ask for clemency for the five Cubans under arrest in Miami", Dr Guevara March said. Her visit follows that of the president of the Cuban Council of Churches, Rev. Dr Reineiro Arce, who had made the same plea to staff of the WCC.

"The World Council of Churches", said Dr Guillermo Kerber of the International Relations staff "is concerned that justice be done and all legalities be taken into account in the legal proceedings against these five people."

In her wide-ranging presentation, Dr Guevara March talked about the impact of the US blockade on the health of Cuba's children. "Doctors cannot get basic medication for children suffering from leukemia," she said. Noting current concerns for the situation in Iraq, Dr Guevara March pointed to the impact of a similar blockade on the children of Iraq, and urged the WCC to continue being part of worldwide calls to prevent war in Iraq.

In her closing remarks, she shared stories of her early memories of her father, the Argentinian revolutionary who fought with Cuba's leader, Fidel Castro, (Emphasis added) in the revolution of 1959. ‘We, his family, fight against use of the term ‘myth’ to describe him. My father was a man with virtues ... and with some flaws,’ she said to a round of laughter. (Emphasis added) ‘If we turn him into a myth, he is not a man. We want him to be known as a man. A man who loved a woman with whom he had four children in five years. A man who went to work for people other than his own people, who loved those people and fought for them.’"

NOW who was this Ernesto Che Guevara? Ernesto Che Guevara was born 14 July, 1928 in Rosario, Argentina. His father was of Irish descent whose occupation was an engineer. His mother was of Spanish-Irish descent. His parents were politically liberals with leftist leanings.

His parent’s liberal and leftist leanings are seen in that when Guervara was fourteen he began reading Freud. He also loved French poetry. At the age of sixteen he became a great admirer of Neruda a Chilean poet. Neruda is considered one of the 20th century’s major poets. Neruda was apolitical radical who became very prominent in the Chilean Communist Party. He was elected to the Chilean Senate and served from 1945 to 1948. From 1948 until 1952 Chile banned the Communist party so during this time Neruda travelled throughout the Soviet Union, Europe, and Mexico. When Chile lifted the ban on the Communist Party he returned back to Chile. In 1970 Neruda was the Communist Party's candidate for the presidency. From 1970 to 1972 Neruda served as the Chilean ambassador to France and in 1953 he was awarded the Lenin Prize for Peace. In 1971 he won the Nobel Prize in literature. THIS WAS THE MAN WHOM ERNESTO CHE GUEVARA ADMIRED AT THE AGE OF SIXTEEN!

In 1944 Ernesto Che Guevara travelled through Latin America which exposed him to what he saw as the exploited villagers of Latin America. In 1953 he graduated from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina with a medical degree. The next year, 1954, Guevara went to Mexico where he met Cuban exile Fidel Castro. Castro and Guevara both believed revolution and socialism was the only remedy for social injustice and inequities.

From Mexico Guerva and Castro sailed to Cuba aboard the ship Granma. In Cuba Guerva fought on the front lines with Castro to finally defeat the Cuban dictator, Batista. In 1959 Guerva was given Cuban citizenship and later married another communist, Aleida March, with whom he had four children.

Guerva was assigned to the presidency of the Institute of National Agricultural Reform, and of the National Bank of Cuba in 1959. In this position he was accountable for the financial responsibilities of Cuba. Then on 23 February, 1961, Guerva was appointed to head the newly established Ministry of Industry in which he served until 1965.

In the years after the revolution Guerva became a very strong opponent of the United States and its influence in the Third World. It was Guerva that helped guide Castro and his dictatorial government down the strong communist path. Guerva authored two guerrilla warfare books and strongly advocated peasant-based revolutionary movements in developing countries.

In September, 1965, Guerva left Cuba to help organize revolutions in overthrowing governments. On October 3rd, 1965, Fidel Castro read Ernesto Che Guevara’s famous farewell to the people of Cuba.

It was in Bolivia in 1966 that Guerva reappeared. He was again a revolutionary leader. In 1967 he was captured and on October 9th, 1967 Gureva was shot.

THIS IS THE MAN OF WHOM DR. ALEIDA GUEVARA MARCH SPOKE AND SAID HAD "some flaws" AND TO WHICH THOSE IN ATTENDANCE AT THIS WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES MEETING 19 MARCH, 2003 GAVE "a round of laughter." Laughing at a remark made of a man who as a Communist hated individual freedom and Bible believing Christianity!

However, that "laughter" should not shock us for the WCC is also not a friend of individual freedom, the Bible, or of the Bible Believing Christian. The WCC and its members do not have as their goal Biblical missions but mission. This is important to note. Their mission is not evangelism of the lost through the preaching of the gospel but is rather the promotion of the social gospel, of social justice, and seeking to right the wrong through revolution by any means. The WCC not only detests Bible Christianity but detests (as they view it) the Colonialist spirit of the United States of America. This is also cause for revolution.

The World Council of Church’s apostate unbelief is seen in its affirmation of dialogue with non-Christian religions. Dialogue with non-Christian religions is one of the World Council of Churches main goals! To pursue this goal the WCC in 1968 or 1969 engaged India’s Stanley J. Samartha to conduct the study of "The Word of God and the Living Faiths of Men". This study initiated the first multi-faith dialogue convened in 1970 in Lebanon under WCC auspices where Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim and Christian participants came to engage in inter-religious dialogue. Later in 1971 the one major event happened due to this multi-faith meeting. The WCC appointed Samartha as the director of what is known as the Sub-unit on Dialogue with People of Living Faiths and Ideologies. That is mouth full!

THEN in 1975 for the very first time in WCC history five people from non-Christian religions were invited to a WCC assembly as special guests and took part in discussions on "Seeking Community". Interfaith dialogue as now led to interfaith prayers among the various religions including those who claim to be Christian. Then there are the Zen and Benedictine monasteries who exchange monks each year so as to learn from each other’s meditative practices. In India there are weekend live-in sessions where those of different religions come together for exposure to each other’s prayer life and to participate in common devotions.

THEN in 1983 the number of non-Christian guests from other religions rose from five to fifteen! Of those fifteen four made presentations to plenary sessions! Also in that 1983 Vancouver meeting the WCC (Wacko Churches of Corruption) even debated whether other religious traditions are vehicles of God’s redeeming activity!!

Things only get worse for in the 1991 WCC meeting in Canberra, Australia there were representatives of other religious and indigenous traditions which included the Australian Aboriginal and Islander peoples. Their participation brought forth according to the WCC "controversy and new interest both in gospel and culture and in the theological understanding of other religious traditions."

Spurgeon said "Whenever a man is about to stab religion, he usually professes very great reverence for it. Let me beware of the sleek-faced hypocrisy which is armour-bearer to heresy and infidelity. Knowing the deceivableness of unrighteousness, let me be wise as a serpent to detect and avoid the designs of the enemy."

The World Council of Churches certainly "professes great reverence" for religion. The World Council of Churches is certainly "sleek-faced" and full of "hypocrisy which is armour-bearer to heresy and infidelity." and may I add apostasy?! The World Council of Churches and its members are nothing but that old Serpent still with a smile saying "Yea, hath God said?" The World Council of Churches doubt, yea, they disbelieve the very Word and Words of God!

There is a warning in all this. Many within fundamentalism are dropping the guard of Biblical separation and holding hands with new evangelicals. These "fundamentalists" say we should appreciate our new evangelical brethren more for the good they do and criticize them less. Holding hands with the new evangelical brethren mean these one time "fundamentalists" are heading hand in hand with the new evangelical toward a closer relationship with the World Council of Churches and Rome!

We who know the Lord as Saviour are required by the Word of God to be separatists and to warn our brethren to "have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."

2Peter 3:17 "…beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness."
