What Does Duty to God Mean?

Here’s the official BSA answer…but we want to know your answer when a Scout or parent asks you. Comment Below.

A Scout is reverent. He is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion.

  1. Duty to GOD is a fundamental part of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) as well as
    a unifying part of the Boy Scout movement, worldwide. The Religious experience of
    young Scouts was a concern for the Founder, Lord Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, who had a firm commitment to reverence and Duty to GOD as a primary part of Scouting. To be Reverent means to be “deeply respectful, to treat with reverence or honor, to venerate or worship, to regard highly with a great and unquestioning love.” The foundation of Scouting rests on the belief in a divine presence, reverence for the CREATOR of all things. Scouting experiences need to include this awareness along with each Scout’s participation in Religious activities to do their Duty to GOD.
