Huckabee Wants God to Decide If He Should Run for President in 2016

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee reportedly told a group of pastors he'd let the Lord decide if he should run for president in 2016. The 2008 Republican presidential candidate is also said to be praying about it, and has had several groups from Iowa and South Carolina come to meet him.

"The first question he was asked was whether or not he was running for president and he said he'd let the Lord decide," ABC quoted Warren Watkins, pastor of Westside Baptist Church, as saying, of pastors' interaction with Huckabee at a meeting at the Convention Center in Little Rock, Ark., Thursday night.

"I think most of the evangelical pastors are already behind him, but I thought this was a great event for him to do that probably," added David Insell, pastor of Believer's Community Church in Batesville, Ark., who was also at the meeting. ...

This is all pure conjecture on your part. Are you seriously suggesting that they pleaded sola scriptura to express their lack of faith and rejection of God? You clearly have no idea! Where is your proof for any of this except in your own head?

As for the same generation being blessed by King David, since Saul reigned for 40 years, how do you come to the conclusion that it was the same generation that was blessed?

You fly in the face of the narrative and think that somehow you are being pious! As for your connection with Samuel, all I can say is Ha! Unlike Samuel, you're a pious fraud.

1517, no disagreement with your statement

It's too bad that Huckabee never made up his mind if he wanted to be preacher or politician. The two positions don't mix. So, when he started to use churches as his base of operation, I stopped supporting him the first time he got the interest to run for President.

This country, needs a moral, secular, and smart President. These characteristics have been sourly lacking in the last Republican candidates. In other words, they could use e.g., a Free Mason for a candidate.

The only priest-king we can accept for earthly leadership is Jesus Christ when he returns.

SteveR,
You are correct, God blessed His people with David, the shadow of Christ, but GS was right as well. Plus, from your post it seems you are saying the same thing. God giving sinful man what he desires is a judgment. Thankfully it was not a total rejection of His people, because he used the Kingly line to manifest the TRUE KING.

1 Samuel 8:7-8
Sounds like he gave them Saul because of their wickedness to me.
I called Observers analysis too 'simplistic and naive' as all generations are wicked(see Reformed doctrine of Total Depravity). However, Saul wasnt chosen to punish that generation, as this generation would be greatly BLESSED with the reign of King David.
To understand what is happening in 1 Sam 8, Samuel is lamenting his rejection. GOD comforts him and says it isnt him they are rejecting. Samuel is told to offer a King, but one UNLIKE that promised in Duet 17. The hearts of the people are tested, and they fail & still want the King....only then Saul is given.

btw: This is a connection I and my brethren have with Samuel, as we are despised for standing up for the truth when the wicked want their way. We take great comfort in knowing we arent alone and the TRUE KING promised suffered in the same manner

John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

And He continues and will continue to give us to the end a line of Ungodly leaders because of our wickedness. Man has a heart condition, and no politician, republican or democrat (or independent) can change that.

God has given the nation over to sin. We can pretend that our electorate can change that, but it is too late. God is preparing not only this nation but all the nations for judgement. Cruz, Obama, Clinton, Ryan, won't be able to change that. Recognizing that, I chose to refrain from participating in the political system. They are all the same. They have man's agenda and not God's in mind.

How many on either side of the aisle demonstrated any Christ-likeness during the recent government shutdown.

I, personally, long for the reign on King Jesus. We would all do well to.

1 Samuel 8:7-8 "And the Lord said unto Samuel, harken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
8 According to all the works they have done since the day I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee."

Sounds like he gave them Saul because of their wickedness to me.

Yes, it does appear that way, doesn't it? Easy to do when ones words imply one sees beyond affiliation, yet repeatedly and lopsidedly support one political philosophy over another. Fruit tells of the tree from which it comes.

A somewhat naive & simplistic assessment for the appointment of King Saul, as the same generation was BLESSED by King David.

During the administration of faithful Judges like Samuel, the people were not engaging in the wickedness that would plague them after the previously appointed Judges passed away. The self appointed righteous of Samuels time understood the historic pattern and knew Samuels sons were wicked(1 Samuel 8:3). They were fearful of a reign by Samuels sons. In a lack of faith, they used the Sola Scriptura defense from the Books of Moses and demanded the promised King

Deuteronomy 17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.

When Gods appointed servant Samuel admonished them, they didnt repent. They thought their understanding of the Books of Moses prevailed over the admonishment of Samuel.

For the same reason God often grants unfaithful men in the ministry - viz. to judge the folk who like to have their ears tickled and nothing more!

No Doubt, you wrongly assume nobody on here prays for Obama because they don't post anything to that effect.

Right, G...it bothers me as well when such blanket statements are made. Using Mr OBama as one example here, the reason he is "bashed" so often in the threads is because there's never anything to praise him for. Many people over time have offered, and continue to off up prayers for this country's leadership, it's just one of those things people don't interject into every comment or thread because they have said it before.

Though I may post my disdain for our ungodly president, I still pray for him when I remember to (a lot of times it slips my mind). Personally, I think God gave a ungodly president to an ungodly country that wanted it that way.

Let him run. No chance against Hilary, unless, of course, God ordains it.

Hard to be a politician and a true believer, because politicians don't have the kingdom of God in mind when they reign.

I must say that this site really has been nothing but a vehicle for bashing rather than praying for the current president as we are commanded to do.

I don't believe most of what he believes (gay marriage, abortion among them), but I do pray for him as I am commanded to as I did for the believing (God knoweth) George W. Bush.

Lest we forget, God raises up leaders and they serve his purposes whether we are careful to acknowledge it or not.

Jim Lincoln, I don't believe everything you post, but at least God has given you the ability to see past dangerous political and ungodly affiliations.

No, Gs, you can't have the Canadian Cruz run for president, remember, many of you thought that Obama wasn't natural born, will Cruz certainly isn't. I think many people are getting fed up with the Stars & Bars Greedy Old Party, Boehner’s Jabs at Activist Right Show G.O.P. Shift, especially--Sam’s Club Republicans Vs. the Tea Party, God may very well pick Hillary as our next President, unfortunately, we Northern Protestants will be punished as well, for the Birchites not recognizing, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.

"Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God."

This verse must include both Christian and non-Christian incumbents since God does use both. Old Testament proves this. I'm sure there is nobody out there who would suggest that God's purpose and plan for America could be thwarted by an unbeliever.

"Matt 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father."

If God is this involved with events on earth then we can assume a president is at least as important as a sparrow.
