“[W]e’ve made it a place where we don’t want to talk about eternity, life, what responsibility means, accountability — that we’re not just going to have be accountable to the police if they catch us, but one day we stand before, you know, a holy God in judgment,” Huckabee said. “If we don’t believe that, then we don’t fear that.”
He said those suffering from a crisis from faith should look to God in the community’s response to the violence. But he added that “Maybe we ought to let [God] in on the front end and we wouldn’t have to call him to show up when it’s all said and done at the back end.”
Yeah I saw that too. Crazy.
So he lumps eternity with accountability. Um, I think you can teach responsibility and accountability without teaching God.
If the only reason he behaves himself is fear of the judgement of God, then I want to steer clear of this crazy man.
And really, the idea that God sits up there waiting to be called is just absolutely insane. I would not be surprised to hear that Huckabee still believes in Santa Claus.
