Resolutions of Moral Action
Recognize the need to elect Godly leaders to political offices
Whereas, politicians are always anxious to appear to be strong supporters of God and His Kingdom; and
Whereas, some corrupt politicians try to use religion for political ends; and
Whereas, these types of political leaders are guilty of selling faith for corrupt power;
Be it therefore resolved, that we born again believers in Christ work to elect good and Godly men and women who share our Biblical values and who support our churches' policies of morality; and
Be it therefore resolved, that we urge these Godly political representatives to care for the public trust; and
Be it therefore, further resolved, that the Baptist Missionary Association of America meeting in Fort Smith Arkansas, in April 2010, work diligently to elect good and Godly men and women to public offices in the United States.
Resolution to stand firmly against homosexuality in a Christian manner
Whereas, Christians can and should minister to homosexuals and lesbians in a kind, yet Biblical manner; and
Whereas, God can work through our lives to minister and touch those that are practicing this gross sin; and
Whereas, our pulpits and lecterns can proclaim the destructiveness of the Gay Rights Movement in America;
Therefore, be it resolved, that we strongly urge the Baptist Missionary Association of America messengers meeting in Fort Smith, Arkansas in April 2010, to continue to take a Biblical stand against the sin of homosexuality in a Christian manner.
Reaffirmation of the United State government to support and help protect the Jewish nation of Israel, God's own people
Whereas, we believe Jehovah God attested both the existence and the continuing existence of the Jewish people and be the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ; and
Whereas, we pray for genuine peace in the Middle East; and
Whereas, we Christians believe that the present state of Israel maintains a divine right to the land given to Abraham;
Therefore, be it further resolved, that the messengers and churches of the Baptist Missionary Association of America meeting in Fort Smith, Arkansas in April 2010, urge the United States government to maintain a recognition of Israel and support unequivocally her right to exist as God's people.
Reaffirmation of God's plan for marriage: One man and one woman
Whereas, the ongoing battle by Satanic forces to dissolve the institution of holy marriage; and
Whereas, the media, the liberal press, social progressives and the liberal churches seek to diminish the importance of true marriage; and
Whereas, Christians affirm God's plan for marriage and sexual intimacy as one man and one woman legally married for life; and
Whereas, any other relationship that involves sexual intimacy is considered outside the bounds of God's law;
Be it therefore resolved, that we promote Godly marriages and urge the churches and messengers of the Baptist Missionary Association of America meeting in Fort Smith, Arkansas, April 2010, to recognize the importance opf the institution of marriage.
Resolution to stand for longevity of life and against euthanasia and physician assisted suicide,
Whereas, believers in Christ do not believe in the elective death approach to the end of life by euthanasia and physician assisted suicide; and
Whereas, elective death as a health care option is perceived as a source of ruin to the sanctity of human life; and
Whereas, the Bible prohibits any decision or procedure which is to be construed as elective death;
Therefore, be it resolved, that the messengers and churches of the Baptist Missionary Association of America meeting in Fort Smith, Arkansas, April 2010, resolved to stand for the longevity of life and against the so-called elective death promotion by man.
