Resolution On Integrity And Morality In The American Political System

WHEREAS, The Bible teaches that government is ordained by God, and

WHEREAS, The foundations of the American political system are reliance upon law, respect for freedom, and dedication to justice, and

WHEREAS, In the present American political arena personnel in the highest echelons of the various branches of our national government have recently been charged with abuses of power and irresponsible acts of lawlessness, and

WHEREAS, Christians in such an hour as this must speak and act forthrightly.

Therefore, be it RESOLVED, That we affirm our commitment to the American constitutional principle of government with justice and integrity and to the biblical principle that “righteousness exalteth a nation but sin is a reproach to any people,” and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we do not become a part of any growing pessimism regarding the American political process but persist in the hope that Christian citizens will demand integrity of all politicians who serve them, and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we commend and support governmental leaders who fulfill their responsibilities in a moral posture while we call for the just prosecution of persons from any political party who are found guilty of maligning justice, and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we call upon all Christians to involve themselves more actively in the American political process to the end that God may be glorified and that the nation may be strengthened as a guarantor of liberty and justice for all.
