When I was running for Congress, I was invited to speak to a group of men at a prayer breakfast. I decided to set forth what the Bible teaches on civil government and economics. I was assured by a college professor that the Bible had nothing to say on those subjects.
By the time I finished he had changed his mind and followed me 12 miles to my office to purchase several books dealing with the subject.
