18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a born again Christian, I am a sinner who deserves eternal damnation, saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 I believe the bible is the infallible word of the one and only living God. I strive to live my life by the moral law of God, i.e. the 10 commandments. I believe I will have to one day stand before God and give an account for my actions, including votes I take while holding public office. I believe I will be held to a higher standard on judgement day because of the oath I have sworn to uphold the constitution. I believe Jesus Christ will heal our land, but only if: Christians humble themselves, repent, and turn from their sin.
