Resolution On Gambling

3. The Southern Baptist Convention hereby deplores the widespread revival of the gambling spirit in our American life and expresses its hearty and unqualified disapproval and censure of all forms of gambling and all games of chance. Hardly anything could be more demoralizing or destructive of all the regular commercial and industrial activities and prosperity of our people, or could more thoroughly debase their morality than a widespread prevalence of gambling. We particularly condemn and protest against the proposal made in the Congress of the United States to set up a great nation-wide lottery.
