WHEREAS natural calamities, disease, wars, and political expressions are working against international stability, peaceful coexistence, and hopes for a Christ-centered world; and

WHEREAS governments and humanitarian resources are being challenged to meet the growing demands for food, clothing, medicine, shelter, and so forth, of people in crisis;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Church of God calls for universal restoration of the godly virtues inherent in the commandment “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” (Matthew 19:19), thus repudiating sin, but demonstrating compassion, reconciliation, and restoration in the spirit of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:18); and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Church of God reaffirms that the Good Samaritan principle of helping the wounded, frightened, lonely, and dying is a necessary, expedient, and functional part of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19), whereby we are to occupy until Christ comes, and to pray, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done” (Matthew 6:10) (64th A., 1992, p. 79)
