The debate about the Christian vision joined at Lausanne, in short, has hardly begun. There may never be any real resolution. Observed one Lausanne participant, Theologian Kenneth Hamilton of the United Church of Canada: "[We and the World Council have] very different viewpoints, and I don't see how they can be reconciled. Basic issues make for basic clashes. Big protests are not fashionable now, but the whole raison d'etre of the congress reflects that the World Council is not giving the leadership it should on the central issue of expressing our faith. If there is no Gospel heart, there is no future for the church."
