Resolution 79

Social and Industrial Questions

The Conference notes with deep interest the prohibition by the will of the people of the sale and manufacture of intoxicating drinks in the Republic of the United States of America, and of their sale in most of the provinces of Canada, and commends this action to the earnest and sympathetic attention of the Christian Church throughout the world. The Conference urges members of the Church in other countries:

  1. to support such legislation as will lead to a speedy reduction in the use of intoxicants;
  2. to recognise the duty of combating the evil of intemperance by personal example and willing self-sacrifice.
