The Bible and the media

Back in the '80s, I attended a Governor's Prayer Breakfast. The scheduled keynote speaker was to be a widely recognized individual, and I eagerly anticipated his talk. At the last minute he had to cancel, and a doctor from the local hospital filled in. The ideas he shared were more than memorable!

The speaker named the two individuals he felt had most influenced the world. They were hardly my choice—he named Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud! He pointed out that, in his view, both had died in a state of poverty and hopelessness because neither let the great source of hope for the world—the Bible—become a central force in his life.
