Huckabee is OUT!! : Support of John Hagee is Intolerable

Filed in:

- Which of These Things is Not Like The Other? (Heresy)

 

Huckabee

Whether you are a Christian or not, this Huckabee-Hagee allegiance should make you drop him from your vote options.

Taking a break from the Iowa campaign trail, Huckabee delivered a Christmas season sermon at Cornerstone about Christ’s birth and embraced Hagee, calling him “one of the great Christian leaders of our nation.”

 

 Hagee is a fiery preacher best known for his writings on the Middle East, where he reads contemporary events as unfolding Biblical prophecy. He is staunchly pro-Israel, saying that God had made his love for the land and its people clear.

 

The Catholic League says Hagee is virulently anti-Catholic — a charge he denies — and it is getting the word out that Huckabee is rubbing shoulders with an anti-Vatican figure.

There are two MAJOR reasons that Mike Huckabee’s connection yesterday to John Hagee SHOULD ALARM US: 1) Dishonesty or 2) International Political Danger

[DISHONESTY] – Huckabee cannot knowingly assert christian teaching, and at the same time befriend Hagee

John Hagee is a HERETIC. He teaches that Jesus was NOT Messiah, and did not claim to be. This is the heart of Christian teaching – either these men fatally disagree, or do agree and are neither one teaching Christianity.

But Huckabee seems to be a standard Christian, so he should think Hagee to be antichristian in teaching.

What are the possible scenarios here?

EITHER

[scenario 1] – ignorant but willing to lie about knowledge for votes

IN SCENARIO 1 – Mike Huckabee DOES NOT KNOW what John Hagee believes but still says “Hagee is one of the great Christian leaders of our nation” – a claim to know what Hagee teaches and how he directs people. Therefore – he is lying and making a deceitful political grab.

OR

[scenario 2] – knowledgeable but willing to lie about agreement for votes

IN SCENARIO 2 – Mike Huckabee DOES know what John Hagee believes and hates his theology but is willing to ignore it, and lie about agreeing with it in a deceitful political grab.

OR

[scenario 3] – Huckabee isn’t lying – he is simply a dangerous theopolitical aberrant.

Mike Huckabee does know what John Hagee believes and AGREES.

WHY DOES SCENARIO 3 MATTER???

[INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL DISASTER] – Israel supported at all costs based on bizarre, uncontrolled sub-biblical views of prophecy.

John Hagee has longtime backed extreme support for National Israel based on crazy and non-historical readings of the Bible. ATTN: If you are not a Christian or a bible reader – PLEASE, BE ALERTED: Hagee’s prophetic views are NOT NORMATIVE to Christian teaching.

CONCLUSION?:

1] If this is what Huckabee DOES agree with, then we are being led into a terrible Israel policy based on unfounded and abnormal views.
2] If Huckabee DOESN’T agree, then we are being asked to vote for a man who will side with whomever will give the most votes.

    Hagee is a false prophet. His gospel is distorted.His unquestioning support of Zionism is a subtle form of racism and is adding to the misery of Palestinians, many of which are Christian.
    The Holy land is rapidly being emptied of Christain influences and is being replaced by a secular athiesm which Hagee and his blind followers are aiding.
    Hagee’s Gospel amounts to nothing more than Christians funding Antichrists.
    And America is being dragged into an unending war with Islam because of Hagees end time nonsense.

  2. terry joe says:

    with all do respect, I do not agree that Huckabee is out. He spoke at Hagee’s church but that does not mean that Huckabee embraces his theology. Do you know how many churches Mike Huckabee has spoken in over the past year,to many to count,I am sure that he does not have the same theological view point as every pastor in the churches he preached in. You are blowing this way out of proportion. Huckabee is running for President and will appear in most high profile places that he is asked to.Hagee’s theology belongs to him and has no bearing on Mike Huckbaee..

    Terry Joe,

    I want to be clearer: Hagee does not teach Christian doctrine. As a longtime pastor, Huckabee should know this. Hagee’s teaches that “Jesus did not come to earth of be messiah” and that “Jesus refused…to claim to be Messiah” and that he “never offered” his Messiahship to Israel. This is known about Hagee. What is also known is that he is INTENSELY political – in a PRO-Israel, Anti-Palestine message.

    REMEMBER what Huckabee said: “Pastor Hagee is one of the great Christian leaders of this nation.”

    1- As a well trained and long experienced Pastor, Huckabee should know better than to give an assent to Hagee as a “great Christian” pastor.

    2- As a politician Huckabee is on dangerous ground. If he is just trying to gain support, then we know he doesn’t care what his endorsers actually think. If his researchers can’t see that this was a very bad move in front of most evangelicals or catholics. If he is going to use PREACHING a SERMON to gain votes, then he is responsible to avoid John Hagee at all costs.

    If you were a Pastor as you say. This page would not exist. Creating and distorting information to the public. Obviously for your personal agenda. Or maybe with some persuasion from another Presidential Candidate.

    If it is true you are a Christian, then you know the truth will prevail. I pray the Lord heals all your hearts. That He helps you deal with other Christian Denominations. That might not align with your Theology in a more effective and truthfull way.

    Also Sir, Just becuase any person states facts. Or for that matter states occurances that are recorded in history. Toward any Christian Religion does not mean they are Anti that religion.

    Barbara,

    I am not trying to offend anyone, but it is important to speak the truth about the biblical/christian Gospel.

    [I ASK ANY READER here to at least read the last paragraph of this response]

    The center of the call to worshiping Jesus is the he is crucified and risen MESSIAH (King) of Israel and of the world.

    By teaching that Jesus “did not come to earth to be the Messiah,” Hagee is denying what is stated over and over again in scripture – even by Jesus himself. [See the Woman at the Well – Jesus directly claims to be the Messiah].

    In fact the name “Christ” is Greek for “Messiah.”

    I didn’t say anything about any denominations. But if we believe there is a difference between truth and error, then we can correct it, and must when it matters. John Hagee’s teaching defies the core of Christian teaching.

    What I was saying in the post was that Huckabee claims to believe and teach one thing (since his is a baptist pastor – making him a champion of historic orthodoxy)

    He KNOWS that he and Hagee’s well known views DON’T agree on CENTRAL issues – ones with which Huckabee would not be willing to be aligned with if he were merely in a pulpit, and not in a race.

    I liked Huckabee a good deal before he made this statement. My writing isn’t politicking for an interested candidate – I actually believe that Huckabee has displayed great instability or deception in this move.

    Just to be clear, I am not a pastor and did not claim to be.

    I know that you may not agree with the statements I have made theologically. I hope that you see that my aim is to promote what the bible teaches.

    —-

    In politics, I am not concerned that the leader should be a Christian – but I am concerned that Huckabee claims one thing – but then claims to align with the opposite, or that he agrees with something that most Christians around the world and non-Christians (in the west) don’t agree with – vehemently promoting national Israel and ignoring Palestinian intersests.

    I hope in someway this clears up my writing.

    Sincerely,
    Luke

    I agree that Hagee is a false teacher and a whacko. I agree that Mike Huckabee should not be our next president. However, when it comes to the Israel issue, if you believe in the Bible, most people understand it to say that the Jews are God’s chosen people. The Old Testament is filled with that sentiment. So to say Hagee is somehow out of line or an extremist because of his support for Israel is ignorant of mainstream Biblical doctrine. Historically, that’s what Bible teachers have taught. Hagee’s views on some other things are totally out of line with mainline theology, and therefore I think he’s a false teacher. Mike Huckabee should not be a follower of Hagee and should not endorse his teachings. Therefore, Bible-believing Christians should not support Mike Huckabee.

  7. Axaday says:

    I speak with some ignorance here, but I looked a step deeper and it appears that the premise of Hagee’s book is that Jesus will be the Messiah on his Second Coming, but really didn’t fulfill it on his first coming.

    I haven’t read the book, but it seems he has a point, in a nitpicky sort of way.

  8. saintluke says:

    Axaday (My Good Friend),

    My point is this:

    The Messiahship of Jesus is CENTRAL to the Christian message. Messiah is basically a synonym for Lord or King. It means the one annointed to be king of Israel.

    THIS is EXACTLY why Hagee denies the Messiahship of Jesus – He wants Christians to be absolutely connected to the modern state of Israel. Erasing the Jesus problem is his way of nudging American foreign policy further into Zionist anti-palestinianism.

  9. Debbie says:

    I belive everyone has their own belief in what the bible says. I believe our God is a loving God and that he will decide what will be. I don’t think God wants one religion against the other. In the bible it states “For God so LOVED THE WORLD that he gave his only begotten son and whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” I also believe religion doesn’t matter what matters is that you believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. I wish people would stop pointing their fingers at everyone and judging. It’s time people start worrying about their own salvation and show through themselves that they have salvation. We as Christians need to SHINE. It’s no longer about who is right and who is wrong it is about loving one another no matter what the circumstances may be. Maybe with a lot more love our world would be in beter shape. You as a Christian need to shine and stop being so negative. WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?

  10. saintluke says:

    Debbie,

    Thank you for your comment. I agree with you wholeheartedly that Christians must work together without anger and division. But this does not mean we should avoid talking about what the Bible REALLY teaches.

    But Paul even corrects Peter to his face in front of a whole church (Galatians 1).

    1 Tim 5.20 says:
    “As for those who persist in sin, rebuke them in the presence of all, so that the rest may stand in fear.”

    We should lovingly correct our brothers and sisters in Christ.

    And what is even more, we have a command to guard against non-christian teaching.

    Hagee may be a deceived believer but his teaching is fully against the teaching of the gospel. The Gospel is about the Messiah’s (anointed one – anointed to be king)’s presence, death and resurrection, and that we must obey him as Lord: Messiah means King.

    His lordship and messiahship go hand in hand.

    2 John is very hard about this (vv.7-11):

    “For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus the Messiah in the flesh . Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward. Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of the Messiah, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.”

    I hope this helps explain why I have spoken what I have spoken.

    Luke
