International Position Statement (IPS) on Racism
General André Cox has approved the publication of an IPS on racism which says that racism is ‘fundamentally incompatible with the Christian conviction that all people are made in the image of God and are equal in value. The Salvation Army believes that the world is enriched by a diversity of cultures and ethnicities.’

War Cry Online
Created In His Image
So, God created man in His own image (Genesis 1:27). When we look into the face of the refugee, the addict, those of race and creed different than our own, we are looking at the face of God. We are looking at our brothers and sisters.
In this issue of War Cry Online we consider the plight of refugees seeking a better life, The Army’s International position on racism, the sanctity of life and about finding the true path for overcoming addictions.
May this issue inspire you to look at others with more compassion and love and with a deeper desire to help those in need. Subscribe free today!
