Resolution On Energy


WHEREAS, God is the creator and owner of all energy resources and we are responsible as his stewards to use them conservatively and safely, and

WHEREAS, Much of the world is now experiencing critical fuel shortages and recently has been terrified by a serious accident at Metropolitan Edison’s Three Mile Island Nuclear Plant,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That we call on all Southern Baptists to practice stringent conservation efforts as an important part of Christian stewardship and witness, and

BE IT FUTHER RESOLVED, That we urgently request utility companies, the federal government, and state governments to proceed with the construction of any new nuclear power plants only when the safety of their operation and waste disposal processes can be assured, and

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, That we pledge our cooperation with both government and industry as they seek to devise major new initiatives in the development of safe, clean, and renewable energy forms.
