Resolution On The Readers Digest Bible

WHEREAS, Southern Baptists are a people who believe in the authority of God’s written word, revealed through the Scriptures; and

WHEREAS, Our largest organization within our local churches is the Sunday School, dedicated for the purpose of teaching the Word of God; and

WHEREAS, We are convinced that the Bible as given to us should not be taken from or added to.

Therefore, be it RESOLVED, That we, the messengers of the Southern Baptist Convention, meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, June 14-16, 1983, commend Reader’s Digest for promoting the Word of God; however, we reaffirm our position that ALL of the Bible is the inspired Word of God and we disapprove the deletion of any of it in a condensation.
