“…I felt disappointed… Because there were people who came to my home, Greg, and urged me to run; said they would support me. There were people who have made commitments and promises that they didn’t keep. I mean, there’s a lot of things that we don’t have time to go into, but the big point was this: that are we going to support people based on making sure that, that person is the best funded? or is it the person who actually shares their convictions? Because if candidates get their same money from the corporatist contributors and donors that support the other candidates, then I guarantee you candidates answer to the ones who are throwing the dollars at their campaign. It always works like that, and anybody who thinks that it doesn’t, they’re the ones who’re delusional.”—Mike Huckabee
Huckabee said that he didn’t feel betrayed, but that he felt disappointed, and that’s fine as a candidate running for President. However, as true Christians, we feel betrayed by those deceptive, compromising, unfaithful, lying, carnal, money-and-popularity-first, “evangelical” leaders. Some have even had the gall to quote 2 Chronicles 7:14, but then did not seek God’s face (by reading the Bible and following it) and support the candidate who most believes and adheres to Christian values, but instead chose to support another candidate because he is better funded and (according to polls, which are often dishonest) more popular. Let’s look at that verse:
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”—2 Chronicles 7:14
Now look at this passage of Scripture:
“I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn: Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.“—Psalms 75:4-7
Fools may look at money and popularity to make their decisions, but true Christians look to God! Let us humble ourselves, pray, and truly seek God’s face (by reading the Bible and following it), and turn from our wicked ways. Let us support the candidate who is doing the same, who truly believes in God, who is steadfast in his values, convictions, and positions; a candidate whose faith and convictions don’t change with the wind of popularity and waves of convenience, or for promises of support and filthy lucre (money). Gov. Mike Huckabee is that candidate, and that is one of the reasons I support him and pray he will be the next President of the United States of America.
