The Voters Guide is a Guide

According to the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Bible is "the only rule of faith and obedience." We have tried in this Guide to bring Scriptural truths to bear on the two ballot measures we must vote on in Oregon this year. But good men can and do disagree, particularly when it comes to what can be very complex public policy issues. Please use this guide as a guide, not as a rulebook. Think about the issues carefully and prayerfully, then vote on the issues you are confident of, and don't feel compelled to vote if you are uncertain.
