Northwest Texas Conference Passes Confessing Statement Despite Attempts to Block Consideration

The Northwest Texas Conference voted a "doctrinal integrity" statement consonant with the statement of the Confessing Movement in its final day of sessions, June 6th, in Midland, Texas.  The vote was at least 62% in favor of the statement.  Those forces opposing the doctrinal integrity resolution had attempted to block consideration of the many resolutions brought in response to the Nebraska tragedy.  This was attempted through a "voice of harmony" resolution.  The resolution noted the deep differences in the conference.  It urged that those differences not be discussed by bringing up the various resolutions. 

However, it seemed that the Conference felt that a voice of harmony could not be raised by enforced silence regarding our differences.  Therefore, the Conference defeated the harmony resolution by, again, at least a 62% majority.
