Rick Perry on Cabinet Bible Study and President Trump's Leadership: 'It Starts at the Top' | CBN News

Secretary Rick Perry: "Well, you know, it starts at the top from the standpoint of this is a president that's not afraid to stand up and say, 'Hey, I'm not perfect, but I know the guy that is perfect and I'm trying to follow those instructions.'

 

And that's a really good place to start from my perspective.

 

There are a number of men and women on the Cabinet who have a Bible study every Wednesday morning. It's my understanding, it's about the first time there's been a Cabinet Bible study in Washington, DC  – the Cabinet members come together in an organized way – in almost 100 years.

 

So, you know, I think that's a good thing. Number one, it gives us an opportunity to see each other outside of our normal work environment, but it's also sending a message that this administration bases its life experiences on that, biblical values.

 

I always ask people who are, you know, sometimes critical, when I was the governor of Texas about, you know, actions that we might have taken, and I said, 'You know, I try to be instructed biblically and which one of the Ten Commandments do you not like?'"
