The Bible is the only authoritative source of God's truth and any view that cannot be directly tied to a scriptural reference is generally considered to be based on human traditions rather than God's leading.


Churches should be encouraged to teach and preach biblical truth on moral issues and to urge their members to vote according to their beliefs, convictions, and values.


It is important to experience of God's grace working in the lives of people. Wisdom and maturity are gained from life experience, especially during the prayer and sharing stories with other Christians.
