M.A. Phillips, Louisiana, offered the following resolution which under suspension of the rules, was adopted;
"Whereas the action of the convention yesterday upon the Statement of the Baptist Faith and Message is being interpreted by some as an endorsement of Evolution,
Therefore be it resolved:
1. That such an interpretation is a misinterpretation.
2. That no paragraph, sentence or word in our Statement of Faith and Message can truly be cited as an endorsement of Evolution.
On motion of M.A. Phillips, Louisiana, the Sunday School Board was instructed to print the statement of Baptist Faith and Message and the above resolution, and mail copies of the same to every pastor in the Convention.
(Presented to the Southern Baptist Convention, in session at Memphis, Tenn., May 14, 1925.)
