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

When our forefathers found this country, it was built on the premise of ensure we trust God. But they wanted to give people the right to worship God without the treat of abuse or loss of religious freedom. However, I believe they wanted everyone to know that God is the reason for this Country and our existence. I will be happy to elaborate further on this question or others.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian and I believe in treating people the way I want to be treated. I believe in the concept of life at conception. I believe every life has a purpose. I believe sometime people lose hope and their way and they need a hand up. Most people want to be better but oftentimes they don't know how to. I believe in the sanity of marriage between a man and a woman. I believe in God and one day we will have to answer him to him.
