Christians can no longer stand back and leave leaders like Kim Jong-Un sit with their finger on the nuclear button, threatening to change of world and all our lives. It is time for believers to stand for peace and to stand shoulder to shoulder with those who have suffered as a result of nuclear weapons, both in Japan and in the countless nuclear tests around the world throughout the second half of the 20th century. The Church has been active in many of the states that have ratified the treaty to date. The Holy See was one of the first to do so and the Pacific Council of Churches urged states in the region to join; many of them have done so. At home, the Church of England passed a resolution in 2018 calling on the UK government to “respond positively” to the treaty.
