Resolution On Taxation

WHEREAS, Government requires taxation, and

WHEREAS, The present tax structure in our country is in need of reform, and

WHEREAS, Tax laws favoring special interests foster disrespect for our government and encourage dishonesty,

Therefore be it RESOLVED, That Southern Baptists call upon Congress to effect a meaningful reform of the tax structure without delay, and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we urge churches to teach that Christian stewardship includes both the payment of taxes to ensure orderly government and the responsible use of tax revenue to fulfill the public trust.
