Huckabee: Christians ‘Shouldn’t Just Accept Things That Are Ungodly’ in Government

HuckabeeIn a recent conference call with Vision America’s Rick Scarborough, talk show host, author and ordained minister Mike Huckabee stated that Christians need to be more active in resisting evil in the land and “shouldn’t just accept things that are ungodly.”

“I’m convinced that the problems are ultimately spiritual; the consequences are political,” he said. “Sometimes people present it as ‘If we could just get the right people elected to office, the spiritual revival will come,’ [but] I think it’s exactly the opposite. If we can pray, humble ourselves, seek God’s face, and turn from our wicked ways, I believe God will hear and he will heal our land.”

Huckabee then spoke of the consequences of our nation’s silence toward evil, such as the 57 million babies that have been murdered in the womb through abortion since Roe v. Wade.

“How do we face God with that?” he asked.

Huckabee also noted how federal judges are overturning the will of the people in regard to the institution of marriage, including in his home state of Arkansas.

“There should have been an outcry from the people of the state—a massive outcry [saying,] ‘You can’t do it,'” Huckabee opined. “I would remind people that the judicial branch is not the supreme branch, and the Supreme Court is only the Supreme Court, not the Supreme Being. And I feel that we have failed in civics to understand that there are three branches of government, and one can’t overrule the other two, and all three of them together can’t overrule the people.”

“Yet, we have people who say, ‘Well, the courts have ruled on abortion, we’ll have to live with it,’ or, ‘The courts have ruled on same-sex marriage, we have to live with it,'” he continued. “I would suggest no, we don’t. We shouldn’t just accept things that are ungodly and that will cause us to have to stand before God with bloody hands. I think that’s where we’ve failed.”

Huckabee then exhorted pastors to preach about the issues facing today’s society, and to encourage their congregations to vote the Bible.

“I would urge pastors to get in the pulpit and call people to biblical truth as it relates to the issue of life and marriage, and even the issue of stewardship, and never be apologetic and say, ‘Vote the Bible in your own heart,” he said. “I hear people say sometimes, ‘Vote your pocketbook.’ Well, if you vote the Scripture, you’ll ultimately benefit your pocketbook, because everything about the economy that’s wrong would be fixed if people had a biblical understanding of the economy and a biblical understanding of personal stewardship and responsibility.”

Pastor Matt Trewhella of Mercy Seat Christian Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin made similar statements in an op-ed published last year by Christian News Network.

“We are now seeing, in our day, the results of a pietistic Christianity. Because the pietists retreated from the culture, the institutions of the culture have been annexed and overtaken by pagan men,” he said.

    Why does Huckabee prefer a Christian version of Iran in the U.S., than the secular government our Founders gave us?

  • Gregory Alan of Johnson

    I really wish “Huck” would prayerfully study his bible more and see that Romans 10:9 Believers in the one true Christ, Yeshua/Jesus, need to separate themselves from the secular authority surrounding them these days per Matthew 4:8-9 and John 18:36. If Yeshua/Jesus wasn’t willing to contract, why should we?

    Mike Huckabee: “ … shouldn’t just accept things that are ungodly.”

    “I’m convinced that the problems are ultimately spiritual; the consequences are political,”… “Sometimes people present it as ‘If we could just get the right people elected to office, the spiritual revival will come,’ [but] I think it’s exactly the opposite. If we can pray, humble ourselves, seek God’s face, and turn from our wicked ways, I believe God will hear and he will heal our land.”

    That part he definitely has correct and we need to identify the root cause.

    If you can’t identify the cause to a problem, you can’t eliminate it.    The best you can do is treat the symptoms.   Gee, sounds like modern “medicine”.

    The real problem is “We The People” usurping the power of law making, which is a power EXCLUSIVE to The Almighty !

    We need to stop promoting man deciding what is “good and evil” instead of enforcing His Perfect Moral Laws.

    Malim in se (evil in and of itself as defined by The Great I Am, the ONLY lawgiver) vs. malim prohibitum (evil because someone determines, or legislates, it to be evil).

    We Are So Far Gone And This Just Scratches The Surface !  Is This The AmeriKan “voters”wanted at the ballot box ????? !!!!:

    From The End of The Article:

    “This is how twisted and perverted our society has become.

    “A lot of Americans believe that if we could just elect “the right politicians” or if we could just change our economic system or if we could just fix one particular issue that everything would be right in America again.

    “Unfortunately, what we are facing is not so simple.  Our problems are not just in Washington D.C. or on Wall Street.  The truth is that our biggest problem is what is going on inside of us.

    “America is rotting and decaying on the inside, and the next great economic crisis is going to reveal just how bad things have gotten.”

    We Are So Far Gone And It Was Done On Purpose (“Woe Unto Those That Cause My Children To Stumble”):

    Grow Your Own (“And this is what they began to do, and now nothing (i.e., no evil) which they purpose to do will be withheld from them.” Gen. 11: 6.):

    Watch the video intro to this madness and listen how most are for it:

    Eating Ourselves:

    Humans To Deliver Animals, Even For Food:…


    This one’s is promoting it and shows how far it’s gone.   These wicked morons ARE FOR REAL: 

    This shows the real wickedness of this:

    This is just the tip of the iceberg as to what’s really going on here and has been going on for longer than most people think.   

    This violation of His Laws falls under the same subject as “hybrids”, etc. (e.g., Lev. 19: 19).

    The DNA Nanobots Have Arrived (or shall we say they’re releasing technology that they’ve had for about 20 years or so):

    And all this while the “patriots” cry for “freedom and liberty”; and the fools think they’ll “vote” their way back to it !

    The bottom line is, most who are for “freedom and liberty” are, in reality, for the liberty to break His Law.

    How to regain true freedom and liberty once again:

    “The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep his commandments, because this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12: 13-14.

    The truth is: This nation has turned it’s back on and, in essence, “flipped the bird” to The Great I Am that became flesh and dwelt among us.

    And because this nation as a whole hates the truth (especially so called “Christians”), here’s what’s happened to it: Because they do not have a love of the truth, God has sent them a strong delusion (like “voting” their way out of this mess, Dr. !), so that they will believe what is false in order that they all may be judged because they did not believe the truth but took pleasure in lawlessness. 2 Thessalonians 2: 10 – 12.

    The Almighty told you in His Word that His Laws, Statutes and Judgments are perfect and “Thou shalt not add or subtract therefrom.”   Yet, you continually “vote” for legislative and presidential offices to do just that, i.e., “add or subtract therefrom.” The making of Law is a power that belongs to Him and Him alone!

    “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, And I will give you rest. Take My yoke (i.e., His Law 1 John 5: 2 & 3, as well as His tithe [tax] sytem) upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and ‘YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.’ (Jer. 6: 16). My yoke is easy, and My load is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30.

    He instructed that if we ” … shall humble themselves (e.g., quit thinking we’re the sovereign, take our proper place and quit usurping His), and pray, and seek my face (e.g., He’s to be the ONLY law giver), and turn from their wicked ways (e.g., enforce His Laws, Statutes and Judgments); THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

    The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth.

    Seek Him while He may yet be found. Look around, the judgments are happening before your eyes.

    Mr. Huckabee..with all due respect would you please lay out a plan for Christians and get it started because without leadership the people will not move. The govt gathers and plans against us and we sit and o nothing because we don’t know where to go. Yes, of course Im praying daily and confessing my sins and walking in the spirit and God wills, but we need groups of Christians we need organization and Im too old, but Im willing to be a worker. This nation needs a Christian leader, like the billy Graham of old. We are sitting back waiting to be conquered and we don’t even know it. aarrrgghh

  • Kathy

    What are we waiting for? We complain, complain, complain and do nothing!!!

  • Kay Yoss

    Sorry, the whole point we have separation of church and state is to NOT have laws that relate to anyone’s god… and to protect the personal right to believe in whatever god you choose. Mr. Huckabee doesn’t seem to grasp this. George Washington would not even take communion publicly because he didn’t want an official religion partnered with government. Perhaps Huckabee is a little out of touch with the founding fathers idea.

    • observer

      Yet another person who doesn’t really understand what the clause “separation of Church and State” is about.

      In a nutshell – it’s about keeping the “government” out of the pulpit – meaning, ‘government’ cannot tell a Pastor WHAT to preach.

      That is the major reason why this country was formed – people came to America from England to get away from King George and his determination to run the “Church” of England any way he saw fit (his belief that he was ruler over all – including the church).

  • James Grimes

    Mike Huckabee is gifted with discernment and has spoken truthfully these many years. However, if we were to ask the Atheists, he is never right in what he says. As Christians, we must speak out against injustice, immorality, and the destructive behavior of those who would erode the greatness this country once enjoyed.

    • James Grimes

      Why are you posting this here on a Christian site? We don’t care that you are an atheist. You need to go somewhere else.

    • observer

      Sure we do, “Tempus” – Jesus Christ was real in the flesh, which is verified by the writings of many people – and much of that “verification” can be found in the Bible itself (the books that make up the Bible).

      It can also be verified by many other writings which are not included in the Bible.

      Saying Jesus was not a real person in the flesh and did not exist is like saying Shakespeare wasn’t real. Or Nostradamus. Or just about anyone. Just because YOU don’t “know” Him or don’t believe the accounts written about Him doesn’t mean much – other than you choose not to believe.

  • Tempus Fugit

    The biggest lie that we Americans are taught in our schools is that the founding fathers were CHRISTIANS! LIES, LIES & more LIES! The founding fathers were NOT christians!
    “Jesus christ and the twelve apostles are a parody of the Sun God and the twelve signs of the Zodiac! “THE RELIGIOUS COMPILATIONS OF THOMAS PAINE”
    …in other words…….Jesus NEVER existed!
