Resolution 22 - Christ and Culture

Resolution 22

Christ and Culture

This Conference:

(a) Recognises that culture is the context in which people find their identity.

(b) Affirms that God's love extends to people of every culture and that the Gospel judges every culture according to the Gospel's own criteria of truth, challenging some aspects of culture while endorsing and transforming others for the benefit of the Church and society.

(c) Urges the Church everywhere to work at expressing the unchanging Gospel of Christ in words, actions, names, customs, liturgies, which communicate relevantly in each contemporary society.

(See further paras 23-40 of the Report of "Dogmatic and Pastoral Concerns.")
