Missouri's 7th District, U.S. House of Representatives




God is Making Me More


Honoring the marriage bed of all who are married; refusing to cheapen sex by separating it from permanent, committed love

I will not bring disgrace on the office of Congressman, as disgrace has recently been brought upon the office of the President.

From the Westminster Larger Catechism, (1647)
 Questions 138-139.


I am committed to chastity in body, mind, affections, words, and behavior; and the preservation of it in myself and others;

I maintain constant watchfulness over my eyes and all my senses;

My commitment to temperance shields me from many sexual temptations;

I keep chaste company;

I demonstrate modesty in apparel, by refusing to wear clothes which send signals to others that I am willing to separate sex from committed, marital love;

My commitment to diligent labor in my calling creates self-discipline and shields me from the sexual temptations common to the idle and lazy;

I shun all occasions of uncleanness, and resist temptations thereunto.

I have made a covenant with my eyes; Why then should I look upon a young woman?
Job 31:1

As soon as I catch myself imagining an unlawful scenario, I immediately put that thought to death. I do not linger around lustful thoughts which would be sinful in reality.

I keep God's Law close to my heart and on my mind, through daily meditation on His statutes, including His commands against adultery, fornication, rape, incest, sodomy, and all unnatural lusts; all unclean imaginations, thoughts, purposes, and affections; all corrupt or filthy communications, or listening thereunto; wanton looks, impudent or light behavior, immodest apparel; prohibiting of lawful, and dispensing with unlawful marriages; allowing, tolerating, keeping of stews, and resorting to them; entangling vows of single life, undue delay of marriage; having more wives or husbands than one at the same time; unjust divorce, or desertion; idleness, gluttony, drunkenness, unchaste company; lascivious songs, books, pictures, dancings, stage plays; and all other provocations to, or acts of uncleanness, either in ourselves or others.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55

This isn't that New Age "Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
