Whereas God has called His people to holiness by saying, “Be holy as I am holy”, and that this holiness includes purity of mind (Rom. 12:2), thoughts (Matt. 5:28) and body (Rom. 12:1);
And whereas it is the responsibility of Christian parents and the Church as a whole to protect our children from the attacks of the enemy and to “bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord” (Eph. 6:4);
And whereas mankind’s creating in the image of God includes a call to stewardship of the world (Gen. 1:26-29), and that god (richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment (I Tim. 6:17)”, among these good things is the modern technology of the personal computer and the internet.
And whereas pornography is a growing epidemic in our world today and a tool of Satan that victimizes those who participate either in the production of or the viewing of such offensive material;
And whereas the technology of the personal computer and the internet has become a primary delivery tool for pornography worldwide;
And whereas there is available today a variety of internet filters which help restrict access to such pornographic sites and materials.
Be It Resolved that the Advent Christian General Conference urge the Advent Christian Church family worldwide to avail themselves to such family friendly internet filters so as to protect and resist the attacks of the Satan in their homes, their churches and places of business.
