On Dr. James Dobson’s Show: National Revival Through Reaching Political Leaders
Revival in America can only happen when our leaders place God at the center of their lives, but how can those in public office be reached with the Gospel?
That question was posed to Ralph Drollinger, President and Founder of Capitol Ministries during a recent interview with Dr. James Dobson on his Family Talk radio show.
“Right actions begin with right thinking and right thinking begins with thinking right about God,” Drollinger said. “So, how can you expect right actions in terms of the course of a nation unless your nation's leaders think right? And how can you expect them to think right if they don't know the Word of God?”
“And we're in a Biblically illiterate America, increasingly so. There has to be a spiritual dimension to this and it comes through the church doing its job of teaching the Word of God to political leaders.”
Dr. James Dobson, host of Family Talk, lauded Capitol Ministries' work to reach political leaders with the Word of God.
“The Lord is blessing it,” Dr. Dobson said.
In addition to leading Bible studies to President Donald Trump’s cabinet, Dr. Dobson noted: “You’re in the House of Representatives, you’re in the Senate and in states across the country. And you also told me when we were in my office a few minutes ago that you’re international.”
“Are you really giving them the unexpurgated Gospel of Jesus Christ? You're not editing it, you're giving the Word of God to these folks?” Dr. Dobson asked.
“Yes, I have a seminary background of exegetical precision, is the seminary that I went to taught me to really think in terms of the Great Commission,” Drollinger said.
“Jesus says, ‘Teaching them to observe all that I commanded you.’ And Paul, he started the Ephesian church, spent three years there. In the book of Acts when he addresses the Ephesian elders who come down to the port city of Miletus to visit him while he's hurrying back to Jerusalem, he says, ‘Elders, I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God."
“So those two passages really inform my ministry philosophy, that I need to be about the blocking and tackling every week of preparing a high-protein diet, Word of God, that's not only exegetically drilled down deep but has a custom application to the life of a public servant. And when you do those two things, there's not a whole of stuff out there like it.”
Drollinger explained that he taught three separate weekly studies to national leaders and, in addition, handed out written Bible studies every week that examined public policy through a biblical lens and address the personal spiritual needs of political leaders.
“You find hunger there?” Dr. Dobson asked. “Is there hunger in the leadership?”
Drollinger answered that he did, and his wife, Danielle Drollinger, who once worked in Dr. Dobson’s Public Policy Department at Focus on the Family, added:
“We can't expect men and women in office to vote right if they reject the Author of the book that we live by. You just can't, you have to start at the heart of the matter which is the heart of the man and the heart of the woman. Good laws come from good hearts, bad laws come from bad hearts.”

The Bible on Babies and Abortion
Where does a woman’s “right to choose” end?
The Bible tells us that one person cannot decide to end the life of another person, especially a defenseless baby.
This week Ralph Drollinger teaches God’s View on Babies – Inside and Outside the Womb to Members of the White House Cabinet, U.S. Senators, and Representatives in separate Bible studies in Washington, D.C.
At a time when legislation is being considered that would allow a baby’s life to be taken up to and in some cases, after birth, learning the biblical perspective on abortion is of great importance.
We invite you to join the leaders of our nation this week and learn the scriptural case for the Pro-Life position.
