Mastering the Fascinating Book of Proverbs!
January 17, 2024 - 16 min
In this study let us attempt to get a better grip and understanding of the Old Testament (OT) book of Proverbs. We will gain an understanding of the various kinds of formal structures that God has incorporated in this book; such insights will greatly aid our comprehension. God penned this book through His servant Solomon, the wisest man of his day (cf. 1 Kings 3:28) and of all time (1 Kings 3:12). Most interestingly for those who hold governmental office, a king wrote the book to his son who would be king. Accordingly, it has great, direct application to those whom God has called to represent Him in the capital community; it is necessary study for anyone who seeks to lead!

Critical: Sound Doctrine When Ministering to Public Servants
December 24, 2023 - 25 min
The legitimacy of the Christian faith rests on the finished work of Christ on our behalf. His conquest over sin is authenticated by His rising from the dead; therefore, the resurrection is the crux of Christianity. In contrast to other major religions of the world—all of which are works-based, soteriological systems—it follows that without the resurrection an individual remains in his or her sin, unacceptable to a holy, righteous God.This week I want to concentrate on this biblical understanding of faith— which Scripture refers to as the faith. Specifically, I want to examine the biblical passages that relate to the faith and the fact that believers have been entrusted as His ambassadors with the faith. What are the implications of the faith in your life?Support a Local Ministry!: https://capmin.org/donate/ Discover more Christian podcasts at lifeaudio.com and inquire about advertising opportunities at lifeaudio.com/contact-us.

If the trajectory of our country is going to change, it must begin with our hearts. America’s systemic problem is spiritual in nature; therefore, we must  first steward our own hearts and the hearts of our families before speaking about changing the direction of our country; anything less is hypocritical.

The Remedy for Racism
November 14, 2023 - 31 min
Every culture and government throughout history has faced the issue of racism and unjust resentment toward others who are different. Racism is characteristic and evident of the sinful nature of man. Fallen mankind has always built barriers and ostracized others. This exclusion stems from pride: a fallen man’s predilection to believe he or she is superior to another in some way. In this regard, racism parades around with his ugly brother who goes by the name arrogance. At its core, racism is a heart issue—a dilemma with no solution apart from Christ’s regenerative work in a person’s heart.In fact, the Bible’s test for the veracity of genuine faith is the absence of racism. John 13:35 says, “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” Jesus’ command here stems beyond loving our own kind.This week let us examine some biblical insights regarding racism.-Learn more at capmin.orgSupport a Local Ministry!: https://capmin.org/donate/ Discover more Christian podcasts at lifeaudio.com and inquire about advertising opportunities at lifeaudio.com/contact-us.

Ralph Drollinger, President and Founder of Capitol Ministries, leads separate Bible studies every week on the Hill in Washington, D.C. to U.S Senators and Representatives. He also leads a Bible study remotely via the internet for former White House Cabinet Members and Senior Staff.

Capitol Ministries was founded by Drollinger and his wife Danielle in 1996 with the mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ in the political arena throughout the world. To date, the ministry has established discipleship Bible-study ministries to legislators in 43 states, to city and county local leaders in communities in nine states and in dozens of foreign countries.

As an expository historical evangelical pastor, Drollinger teaches the Bible one book at a time, verse by verse. Additionally, every week Bible studies Drollinger has written on topical issues are delivered to the 535 legislators. Drollinger believes that nothing can substitute this basic discipline in ministry. Transformation and discipleship stem from “the renewing of the mind” (Romans 12:1-2).

Drollinger played basketball at UCLA under coach John Wooden and was the first player in NCAA history to go to four Final Four tournaments. Drollinger was taken in the NBA Draft three times but chose to forgo the NBA to instead play with Athletes in Action, an evangelistic basketball team that toured the world and preached the gospel at halftimes. Drollinger signed with the Dallas Mavericks in June 1980 as a free agent, becoming the first Dallas Maverick in the history of the then-new NBA franchise.
