The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) reported Monday that many members of the president’s cabinet gather regularly to study the Bible.
The founder of Capitol Ministries, Ralph Dollinger had high praise for his cabinet subjects with whom he sits down each week to lead a Bible study session. Members that regularly attend include Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
“It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable. They’re so noble. They’re so learned,” Drollinger told CBN.
Vice President Mike Pence’s steadfast faith has been well-documented; the president’s second-in-command attends the sessions whenever his schedule allows.
“Mike Pence has uncompromising biblical tenacity and he has a loving tone about him that’s not just a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal,” Drollinger said, in part. “And then, … he brings real value to the head of the nation.”
Drollinger singled out Attorney General Jeff Sessions in praise of his practical application of Drollinger’s abstract teachings.
“He’ll go out the same day I teach him something and I’ll see him do it on camera and I just think, ‘Wow, these guys are faithful, available, and teachable and they’re at Bible study every week they’re in town,'” Drollinger told CBN, referring to Sessions.
Drollinger founded the Christian Broadcasting Network after a career as an NBA player and made it his goal to spread Christianity throughout government offices in the United States. As well as the study session for the cabinet, Drollinger has started groups in various state capitols across the country and in both chambers of Congress.
President Trump has also demonstrated moments of faith in the White House and receives a copy of the scripture reading each week.
