Resolution 18

The Church and the Modern World - The Church and the Modern State

The Conference affirms it to be the duty of the Church constantly to proclaim the sovereignty of God who is the Father of all and whose law is above all nations; it condemns the concept of the unbridled sovereignty of the nation and such usurpation of power by the state as is opposed to the basic truths of Christianity; further, it denies that the individual exists for the state, but asserts that one of the principal ends of the state is the development of personality, the highest good of the individual.
