Resolution For the 2008 CHP National Convention

1) Actual wording (slightly modified by the CHP Policy and Constitution Resolution Committee)

1) WHEREAS the inerrant Word of God says: "The invisible things of Him are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made" [Romans, 1:20],

2) WHEREAS the truth of some parts of the Bible are knowable by both Faith and Reason, among others the Ten Commandments, which are an overview of Natural Law,

3) WHEREAS we need not fear deviant philosophies based on corrupt reason, since we will always "believe there is one Creator God [...] We believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired, inerrant written Word of God [etc...]" (Constitution, Article A 2-Principles),

4) WHEREAS the CHP does not seek to impose a theocracy (in the sense of a Government where non-Christians are excluded), since the fundamental principles of good government (i.e. "Natural Law") are knowable by all citizens of good will, whether or not they have already received Jesus Christ as their personal saviour,

5) BE IT RESOLVED the following sixth paragraph be added to Article A-2 as subsection (d) of our Constitution and to the CHP membership pledge form:

6) We all believe the five preceding clauses, but some of us know (and can prove using reason alone) that God exists, that we have a spiritual and immortal soul, that what we call "Biblical principles" are an overview of Natural Law, which itself must be the basis for all civil law, and that Natural Law condemns abortion, sodomy, theft, rape, perjury, etc.

For a more detailed explanation of the rationale behind this Resolution, see Section 7: "7) The meaning of "Biblical principles" on which are based civil laws", in the article called:
"Does The CHP Want To Establish A Theocracy?"
