(THEIRD.ORG) — Recently, General Secretary for the World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC) Setri Nyomi told students at Princeton Theological Seminary that Protestant reformer John Calvin would have supported the Occupy movement. Although he tried to uphold the unique calling of Christ’s church, he nevertheless fell into narrow leftist platitudes of feminism, open borders, socialism, and environmentalism.
Princeton is historically Presbyterian. Nyomi is the non-European head of WCRC, which is based in Geneva, Switzerland. WCRC is historically left-leaning and more represents liberal church elites in Europe and North America than much of the Global South. Although he is from Ghana, Nyomi seems to uphold the political liberalism of Western reformed churches though he may be more theologically conservative.
