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 nine 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.
The 1999 Biblical Ballot Measure Voters Guide was written
by our Executive Director, Dennis R. Tuuri. Dennis pastors at
Reformation Covenant Church,
which meets in Oregon City. He can be reached at (503) 263-8337 or via
email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dennis is currently preaching through the Law of the Covenant
found in Exodus 21-23. The research for some of this Voters
Guide was originally done for these sermons, which are available
in audiocassette format.
Dennis received very helpful comments on several of the
measures from John Eidsmoe. John is a Christian constitutional
attorney of national stature, and a man of incredible accomplishments.
John is also one of the most gracious Christian gentlemen
and statesmen we have had the privilege to work with. Steve
Samson, History Professor at Liberty University in Lynchburg,
Virginia, and adjunct professor at Christ's College, also in Virginia,
also contributed to the Voters Guide. Steve is a veritable
walking Christian encyclopedia of history, whose assistance and
friendship over the years has been of tremendous encouragement
and help to our organization.
