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

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Defining, separating, and limiting powers helps to prevent corruption that would result from man's sinful nature and lust for power.

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.

God, Constitution, Voters, Congress, Supreme Court.

In those circumstances where a mother while giving birth is fighting for her life and the medical staff is exhausting every effort to save both mother and baby.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a child of God, separated from God by my sinful nature, and offered the gift of salvation through a risen savior, Jesus Christ. Because I have accepted the gift, the Holy Spirit now dwells within me and guides me to honor God in my thoughts, words, and actions.
