“Ninety percent of the politicians I know claim to be Christian and want to live according to our beliefs but it is hard when we don’t actually know what the Bible says, and that is what the Capitol Ministries Bible study teaches.
“When local leaders actually understand what the Bible says, we can vote and make policy according to our faith.
“Local government leaders are the boots on the ground, we are the ones who are dealing with the day to day issues of the nation right now.
“We are also the future congressmen and senators.
“After tax collectors, God instructed that leaders be reached. If Local Government Ministries Bible studies are offered throughout the U.S., they would have a major effect on our leaders and our nation.”
