If you wish to make a decision, based on Christian values, for whom to vote for in the upcoming Federal Election be ready for a tough time because it is certainly not an easy task to decipher all the positions of the major parties. To assist you the tables below are a summary of the positions of major parties on issues of concern to Christians.
