Former Arkansas Governor and Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was recently invited to deliver the convocation at Liberty University. He spoke on the state of the culture in America — and noted the state of the world wasn’t merely because ungodly people have said “yes” to ungodly things, but also because Christians have not stood up to say no:
Godly people have failed to say no to the ungodly things. Culture is moving away from godly values that it is almost unrecognizable from what it once was.
He issued a challenge to live out loud for Christ:
Are you willing to be hated? Are you willing to be despised? Are you willing to take the kind of stand that will not make you popular?
What we have is a sin problem. And since we’ve ordered God out of our schools and communities; the military and public conversations, you know, we really shouldn’t act so surprised when all hell breaks loose.
The full half-hour convocation is worth the listen.
As noted at the Christian Post.
