WASHINGTON — Leading a Washington bureaucracy and serving as a cabinet secretary isn’t how Ben Carson thought he’d spend his retirement, but the famed pediatric neurosurgeon tells CBN News he’s starting to see why God placed him in this unlikely position.

“As a pediatric neurosurgeon I spent a lot of time trying to give kids a second chance – operating for hours and hours, sometimes all night,” he tells CBN News.

“But then being faced with having to send them back into a horrible environment with mold and lead and vermin – all kind of stuff – it was a horrible feeling for me – now I have a chance to actually do something about that environment,” he continued.

One year into the job, he says God is revealed why He placed him there by taking Carson to the Bible.

“There’s a verse in the Bible, Proverbs 29:18, that says, ‘without a vision the people perish,’ and I look around and see a lot of people who just are not thriving,” Secretary Carson said.
