18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

God through his inerrant and complete word as reflected in Judeo Christian beliefs are the absolute standard by which all civil authority, law and society should be accountable to. I do believe that we will all be accountable to Our Lord and Savior, that our actions on this earth should be centered around his teachings. That there is not a single issue of the day that cannot be addressed between Genesis and Revelations.
