Former Arkansas Governor and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee addressed a banquet for the non-profit Ten Good Men this weekend, and he urged Christians to get involved:
Huckabee [said] it is believers’ responsibility to get more involved in civic life, give a bold declaration of the life of the Gospel, and not live as if they were “recruited by the Secret Service.”
“I think a lot of Christian people tend to think they need to disassociate themselves from cultural pillars. I think it’s the opposite.”
“Christians in this country could be the most important source for good in America if they would execute their basic civic responsibilities.”
This is a continuation of Huckabee’s theme from 2010 that Christians need to be “salt” and engage the culture, not abandon it.
And he’s right, of course. Christians need to live out loud, not cower behind drawn curtains — no matter what profession they’re in.
