Mike Huckabee Says America Needs More Of God

Mike Huckabee gave a speech Sunday before a group of Southern Baptist pastors who are about to attend their annual convention in Salt Lake City. He told the pastors that government was to big because not enough people have taken Christ as their savior. “The reason we have so much government is because we have so much broken humanity,” he said. “And the reason we have so much broken humanity is because sin reigns in the hearts and lives of human beings instead of the Savior.” “Government knows it does not have the answer, but it’s arrogant and acts as though it does,” Huckabee said. “Church does have the answer but will cowardly deny that it does and wonder when the world will be changed.” Huckabee used recent school shootings as an example of, “the winds of spiritual change in a nation that has forgotten its God.” Huckabee just released a book that he passed out at the convention that deals with school shootings called, ‘Kids Who Kill: Confronting our Culture of Violence’. “The shootings were just one more wake-up call to the nation,” he said. “I fear we will turn and hit the snooze button one more time and lose this great republic of ours.” “I hope we answer the alarm clock and take this nation back for Christ,” he said. He told the crowd that taxes are so high because people don’t give enough to their churches. “I’m often asked why taxes are so high and government is so big. It’s because the faith we have in local churches has become so small. If we’d been doing what we should have, giving a dime from every dollar to help the widows, the orphans and the poor, we now wouldn’t be giving nearly 50 cents of every dollar to a government that’s doing … what we should have been doing all along.” Huckabee also explained why he left the ministry for politics. “I didn’t get into politics because I thought government had a better answer. I got into politics because I knew government didn’t have the real answers, that the real answers lie in accepting Jesus Christ into our lives.” He said that getting into politics is like, “getting inside the dragon’s belly.” He added that, “there’s not one thing we can do in those marbled halls and domed capitols that can equal what’s done when Jesus touches the lives of a sinner.” One of the notions of our founding fathers was the separation of church and state. Sounds like Huckabee would like to save our country for Christ.
