18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in the God of the Holy Bible. He created all things in his infinite wisdom and I cannot, in my finite wisdom, comprehend Him fully. I believe that He is holy and that I am not. Because of my failure, the coming, death, and resurrection of Jesus was necessary to restore my relationship with holy God. I believe that absolute truth exists and we should seek it. This is my statement of faith and is on my push cards and door hangers. I am pro family. Marriage one man and one woman only. Those are born woman and born man. No transgender stuff. I am pro life. Work in pro life local group and my wife is on the board. Pro second amendment. If there is question of where a stand on an issue, I am for the Bible and the US Constitution as originally written.
