Reasonta for Refusal
Among a number of reasons for
refusal to accept the Lambeth pro
posal was the following, which
gives the Baptist position on
: creeds: --'(' "-' '
, "We ' cannot agree, however, to
the acceptance of the NIcene or
Apostle's Creed as a condition of
Christian union. While holding
the substance of these creeds. Bap
tists hare always held that the
New Testament Is the sple suffic
ient certain and authoriatlYe rule
of faith, i Individuals and groups
of Baptists do not hesitate to ex
ersiee their right as freemen in
Christ, to put forth from time to
m interpretations of the New
Testament In he form of confes
sions of. faith. But these are ne
Ter authoriatlve in character or
binding upon the consciences of
others. Any effort to enforce
such confessions or eredal state
ments would meet with prompt
and rigorous opposition by our
Baptist people." j

stating the tundamental Baptist
principled the statement contin
