What!? How can you say that Huckabee is ashamed of Christ?! He served for 12 years as a Baptist minister. This is just an outrageous, unsupportable, hit piece on a man of God! Au contraire. Huckabee has gone to great lengths to hide the entire body of sermons that he gave while serving as a Baptist minister.
He and his handlers have also taken steps to block access to videotapes of his sermons, spanning his 12 years as a Southern Baptist minister before he entered politics. During the 2008 campaign, Mother Jones reported that Huckabee's campaign had refused to make the sermons public---and that, according to an official at one of the churches he'd led, much of the archival material relating to Huckabee's tenure had been destroyed.
So why is Huckabee ashamed of his service to Christ? Why does he have to hide his sermons?Here are a few passages from the Bible (King James Translation) that he should chew on.
Mark 8:38 "Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."
Romans 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ..."
Romans 9:33 "...and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed."
2 Timothy 1:8 "Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;"
2 Timothy 1:12 "...I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day."
1 Peter 4:16 "Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on his behalf."
Acts 26:26 "...for this thing was not done in a corner."
