18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a follower of Jesus the Christ. I am a weekly Bible Study leader under the authority of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. I still fall short of the glory that God has planned for me. When I fall down I pick myself up, ask for forgiveness and go after the prize anew. I vote the Bible based on what it says and not necessarily what any candidate claims to believe. I would vote for a non-believer if I thought that they would honor the Constitution and support it. I have personally encountered many people who claim that they are Christians but do not show it in their living or lifestyle. I understand the judgement of God but really love His mercy and grace for me and my family. My salvation is the greatest prize I have ever been given.
