Necromancy

In 1991, the WCC organized a huge congress in Canberra, Australia, where Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and other
non-Christians were invited to participate. The February 1993 issue of the Reader’s Digest presented the congress
in this way:

"Before the opening worship service began at the last general assembly of the WCC in Canberra,
delegates passed through the smoke of burning leaves. This was a pagan cleansing rite.... The next
day as two painted, loin-clothed Aborigines cavorted, South Korean theologian Chung Hyun Kyung
invoked spirits of the dead and exhorted the audience of more than 4,000 to read the Bible ‘from
the perspective of birds, water, air, trees’ and to ‘think like a mountain’." [14]

Multilateralism

The United Nations and The World Council of Churches (WCC) have reaffirmed their commitment to collaborate
at a meeting between the general secretaries of both organizations held on 29 October 207 at the UN headquarters
in New York.

"As the UN faces the 21st century highlighting the interrelatedness of development, security and
human rights, the WCC strongly believes multilateralism is the only way to respond to the
challenges of today," said WCC general secretary Samuel Kobia at the meeting. That is why the
WCC is committed 'to the principles and purposes of the UN'." [12]

In light of the above, the Prophet Amos asks:

"Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" (Amos 3v3, AKJV, p.402)
