    Working in the inner-city for 22 years, I have seen first-hand what the importance of CAPITALISM is--in providing jobs, giving new direction, teaching adult responsibility, changing lives. I so agree with Mr. Pollard: paraphrased, without capital, there is no ministry. God calls His people to give/to provide for the ministry. In 22 years of INNER-CITY ministry, my experience has transformed me from socialist to fiscal conservative after witnessing the waste of hundreds of thousands of dollars via state and federal programs for the poor. I love my community but government handouts has caused more harm than good. Capitalism, although not perfect, has brought fiscal freedom and hope and maturity through responsibility. Proud of our Biola grad (2013) in business management who is now attending Asbury Seminary. Thank you, Biola!!
