18. What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

# 15 Religious freedom is foundation and we are already guaranteed religious freedom. The laws are not being properly interpreted. I do not favor a Constitutional Convention at this time. # 16, The US is not a democracy, we are a representative republic. #18 The founders understood that the heart of man is inherently evil and the separation of powers protects citizens from evil being perpetrated by an evil ruler.

Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

Only to save the physical life of the mother.

I am born-again believer in Jesus Christ. I believe that the Bible is the Word of God and has wisdom worth following.
