SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Republican Mike Huckabee spoke from the pulpit yesterday, not as a politician but as the preacher he used to be, delivering a sermon on how merely being good isn't enough to get into heaven.
Huckabee is vying for support from the Christian conservatives who dominate the GOP in South Carolina, which will choose a Republican presidential nominee on Saturday. A former Baptist minister and Arkansas governor, Huckabee is competing for their votes with fellow Southerner Fred Thompson.
As in Iowa, where he won the Jan. 3 caucuses, Huckabee is rousing pastors to marshal their flocks for him. He pitches himself as someone who not only shares their views against abortion and gay marriage but who actually comes from their ranks....

Bush campaigned like a sheep but inwardly planned to fulfill his agenda to create a One World Government. That he has done ... successfully!! Don't be fooled again with Huckabee!!

Lam 3:22 [It is of] the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
Lam 3:23 [They are] new every morning: great [is] thy faithfulness.
Pro 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Pro 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
Pro 3:10 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
Pro 3:12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son [in whom] he delighteth.
2Chr 7:14 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.
In 1983, 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the U.S. At the time, Ben Bagdikian was called "alarmist" for pointing this out in his book, The Media Monopoly. In his 4th edition, published in 1992, he wrote "in the U.S., fewer than two dozen of these extraordinary creatures own and operate 90% of the mass media" -- controlling almost all of America's newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations, books, records, movies, videos, wire services and photo agencies. He predicted then that eventually this number would fall to about half a dozen companies. This was greeted with skepticism at the time. When the 6th edition of The Media Monopoly was published in 2000, the number had fallen to six. Since then, there have been more mergers and the scope has expanded to include the Internet market. More than 1 in 4 Internet users in the U.S. now log in with AOL Time-Warner, the world's largest media corporation.
In 2004, Bagdikian's revised and expanded book, The New Media Monopoly, shows that only 5 huge corporations -- Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch's News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany, and Viacom (formerly CBS) -- now control most of the media industry in the U.S.
Kestrel, Sadly, there is a lot of truth to be found in several of your comments, and judgment is falling all around us; everything concerning America is tainted and corrupt. Homosexuality is forcefully advancing, like a cancer,[it seems to be very influential in California in particular] and our Government allows praying to other gods before their sessions get underway. Anything goes, unless you mention a bible verse, or the worst of names, 'Jesus Christ'. It is my impression that all these candidates, including Mr. Huckabee, will say and do just about anything to get a vote. Heed the words of Christ 'be watchful, and pray...'
There is only one candidate that has really stood out to me as someone I can support without being ashamed. That candidate is Duncan Hunter. He seems to have a strong testimony in addition to his strong, consistent stand for what's right. Probably his disfavor from the media (not a bad thing) is one main reason he's not gotten alot of publicity.
Read more about him. There's no reason to vote for someone we'll be ashamed of (sure, he's not perfect, but in my opinion, he is the best choice for Christians).
They're almost All at it Folks... The Question you got to ask Yourself is... Would you be able to Consistently,day~in,day~out,month~in,month~out,year~in,year~out, Resist Gifts given ?... We are all pretty Wretched,and a Gift is a Gift.. For me,its when a Country starts giving its Orphans to the Sodomites,and proposes to teach Sex~Education to 5 Year~Olds,and promotes "two~daddies",and "two~mummies", like ours here in Britain does that I See Judgment is Already here... "God requireth that which is Past".. You folks in the States,should be aware,that the Sword of America is Blood~Soaked,as is the UK's... And National~Judgment Slumbers not... God's Great Thoughts Go on though... And if you are in the Smitten Rock.. Cleft for us,then Blessing will Eternally flow.. Most governments set themselves up as "god" and have,corporately at least,little thought of the Will of God... Its been the way since time Immemorial,and it will Not Change. Mercy will ever flow to the protectors of Israel,so we will see less Judgment for US than UK,This Country(UK)is barely a Trustworthy friend of Israel,and is well in reciept of Judgment.. The Risen~One is the Coming~One. A bit of a warble folks,please forgive me,I hope I have made some sense to Someone Paul,Scotland firstname.lastname@example.org
fyi the service including the sermon is available in streaming video at http://www.firstnorth.org/
Apparently journalists have been having difficulty getting hold of copies of old sermons from Mike Huckerbee's ministry according to http://www.motherjones.com/washington_dispatch/2007/12/huckabee-faith-baptist-pastor-sermons.html
"When asked for copies of the sermons Huckabee delivered at Immanuel Church, an employee there claimed none could be found. A Beech Street Church pastor's assistant maintained that much of the archival material from Huckabee's tenure as pastor had been destroyed during a remodeling. The rest, she said, was not available to the press.
When Mother Jones contacted the Huckabee campaign and asked if it would help make his previous sermons available, the campaign replied in a one-sentence email that it had received multiple requests for such material and was "not able to accommodate" them. "
Realitycheck you are influenced/brainwashed by the lame stream media (LSM) which is owned by 5 corporations. All you offer is an ad hominem attack because you cannot refute historical facts.
War is very profitable for some. Mike Huckabee walks in lock step with the globalist agenda which openly advocates and strategizes for one world government. See links posted in my previous comments....
Hey Suzy...get ready..the Martians are coming to take us all over (you have been spending too much time with the Ron Paul followers,or reading to many 9/11 conspiracy theories!)....why don't you read the Bible and quit worrying about bankers and financiers and industrialists taking over the world....

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."
"It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra national sovereignty of an intellectual ELITE and world BANKERS is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." - David Rockefeller, Private Banker, Council on Foreign Relations, June 1991
Engraved on the tomb stone of President Andrew Jackson is this statement: "I Killed the Bank."
And your reason for picking on him? Is it the impeccable credentials of all the other candidates? How come "Christians" join in the attacks on folks already being attacked by the ACLU,N.O.W.,the liberal media etc etc?? very interesting isn't it? Like I said, nobody is perfect - train your guns on the right target folks!
