Resolution On Keeping The Lords Day

WHEREAS, The Creation account recorded in Genesis 2:1-13 states that God completed His work of Creation in six days and rested on the seventh day; and

WHEREAS, The Fourth Commandment recognizes the importance of keeping one day holy; and

WHEREAS, Jesus by example and teaching kept one day for worship; and

WHEREAS, Since much of the moral breakdown in our society has come since keeping the Lord’s Day holy has been largely disregarded.

Therefore, Be it RESOLVED, That this 135th session of the Southern Baptist Convention affirms the biblical teaching concerning the Lord’s Day as a matter of faith and practice; and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we urge Southern Baptist churches to teach the importance of the proper use of The Lord’s Day to strengthen families and give proper recognition to God as Creator; and

Be it finally RESOLVED, That Southern Baptists express concern over the continuing secularization of the Lord’s Day.
