American Council of Christian Churches
50st Convention, October 22-24, 1991
West Chester, PA
Resolution on Our American Veterans
The Bible encourages all true believers to continue to have memory of the events of history, “lest we forget,” and further, Scripture demands that we give honor unto those who are rightly due honor and respect. “Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor” (Romans 13:7).
Veterans Day, set for November 11, each year, memorializes all men and women who have served in America’s armed forces, including those who in giving their lives, have paid the supreme sacrifice.
The ACCC, meeting for its 50th Annual Convention on October 22-24, 1991, in West Chester, Pennsylvania, wishes to go on record to honor and accord our deep respect to our veterans. Their faithful and dedicated service in the defense of freedom shall not be forgotten. We, the citizens of the United States enjoy the blessings of liberty, granted by God, sealed by those who fought and died and those who fought and were spared death.
