Huckabee's Candidacy: Divine Providence Is Behind It!

Watch this clip and then decide how you feel about Mike Huckabee as a candidate:

I don't know about you, but I am alternatively revulsed, angry, and sad as I watch this man divide the GOP by mixing religion and politics in the most blatant and self-serving manner.

The problem is, Lowell, that I can't disagree with him theologically, since everything occurs by divine providence, other than individual moral choice. If Mike Huckablee is surging, that is indeed by divine providence. If he eventually loses to either Rudy or Mitt, that will be by divine providence as well. I realize, however, that your objection is his public attribution, with the inherent implication that God is bringing him righteous victory over the godless lapsed Catholic and the Mormon. I agree with you there, and for that reason have always been uncomfortable with athletes who praise the Lord for their achievements on the playing field. While the wide receiver may be right that God willed that he make that touchdown grab, it will be no less God's will when the same receiver drops a pass in the endzone during the playoffs. Also, what God wills, although always for ultimate good, may seem bad or even evil from our perspective. God also wills famine and pestilence, sometimes. As Isaiah said in a prophecy from God, "I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil; I am HaShem that does all these things."
