Two things about this video.

First, I cannot help but to be reminded of the pharisees attempting to trap Jesus, especially when Wolfe tried to redirect his answer. Draw your own conclusions about that.

Second, I think that his response is a very good one for the Christian community. Christians have had a tough road to travel in the arena of public opinion (your opinions on the value of participation in that arena notwithstanding). At the risk of pointing fingers, I think the combative nature of fundamentalism has done more harm than good to the cause of Christ. Huckabee’s answer does a lot to unify the Christian message and return it to its real purpose – to glorify God.

Let’s be honest for a moment – what difference does it make to the cause of Christ to insist on any particular interpretation of such issues? Most of the issues we spend so much energy on are peripheral to (albeit supportive of) the message of God. The simple message of God, for which we should be willing to die to uphold, is this: God created all, including mankind, who rebelled against God, Who in turn sent Jesus Christ (Himself made flesh) to restore this broken relationship because He loves us – all we have to do is repent and believe. That is God’s message, and propelling that message to the ends of the earth is the purpose of the Bible.
