INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM (1980)

WHEREAS acts of terrorism against innocent people are on the increase worldwide; and

WHEREAS the destruction of property and the taking of lives are against basic Christian principles; and

WHEREAS Scripture forbids the unlawful taking of human life and exacts heavy penalties to those who violate this commandment;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that we, the General Assembly of the Church of God, reaffirm our historic commitment to the sacredness of human life; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we stand opposed to all acts of international terrorism (58th A., 1980, p. 50).
