Presented by David Wasdell

An analytic critique questioning the fundamental assumptions of the WCC Vancouver Assembly ‘Jesus Christ: The Life of the World’ (as presented in John Poulton’s preparatory text ‘The Feast of Life’ [WCC, 1983]). If the church reinforces the social defences of scapegoating, projection denial, displacement and splitting, then it fosters abdication from dealing with the source of the world’s soreness and salves the world’s conscience while sustaining its psychosis. In so doing, it bears responsibility for the perseveration and dominance of death in a world desperately in need of new life. [1983]
