Patient Advocate since 1977.

Statement by German Foreign Minister Gabriel on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation

Leave a comment

The Reformation and its effects changed the world and our societies far beyond Germany and led Europe into the modern era. We owe our current humanistic, enlightened world view not least to the reformers and their work.

Today’s conflict-ridden world is in search of direction. We are witnessing increasing authoritarianism and resurging nationalism. As a result, values associated with the Reformation, such as peace, freedom and responsibility, are under pressure. When we look back at 500 years of the Reformation tomorrow, we will do so in the knowledge that our country’s foreign policy must stand up for these values more than ever before.

The answer to these challenges cannot be to withdraw to a national bubble. Instead, we must recall Martin Luther’s call to “get involved!”. With this in mind, we must work resolutely for equity and peace worldwide and seek dialogue with those who do not share our values. In this context, we also aim to make greater use of religions’ peacemaking potential in our foreign policy than we have done so far, with the aim of fostering equity and justice in societies around the world.
