Jump to navigationJump to search

(Unofficial summary of the task: to look at how Scripture as we understand it can be reconciled with science.)

AGM of Sutherland Christadelphians Inc. — 4th March 2018

Two resolutions were agreed to:

  1. We acknowledge that problems undoubtedly exist within our community in reconciling our various understandings of Scripture with the discoveries of science, and we accept the responsibility to give attention to solving these difficulties in an atmosphere of calm, sincere, conscientious study, unhindered by rumours, mistrust, suspicion and hasty judgements.
  2. We ask the Management Committee to appoint a small group of suitable members willing and able to undertake this task with due respect to Scripture, science and history based on the scope provided by the Ecclesia, and report back to the Ecclesia at the appointed time.
