Berlin Declaration on the Uniqueness of Christ and Jewish Evangelism in Europe Today

August 22, 2008
The "Berlin Declaration on the Uniqueness of Christ and Jewish Evangelism in Europe Today" echoes the controversial Willowbank Declaration in its framing of Jewish evangelism as an act of love incumbent upon all Christians. The Berlin Declaration mourns a history of anti-Semitism and Christian complicity in genocide, which is sees as reminders of the reality of sin. This reality, it declares, is overcome through the transformative grace of Jesus Christ, and the Jews, like all other people, need to hear this message, though its proclamation should not be coercive or disrespectful. The Berlin Declaration also affirms the positive value of dialogue in conjunction with (but not as a replacement for) evangelism. Though not an official document of the World Evangelical Alliance, the WEA Theological Commission is distributing the Berlin Declaration for study and discussion.
