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

Self governance is no different than other types of governance in that we want to be led by people of virtue. That means we as citizens must be virtuous.
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

While I fall short of perfection every day, I am not ashamed to proclaim who Jesus is and what he has done for me and others.
