Christianity People & Quote

[quote] Mike Huckabee

100-HuckabeeFirst of all, I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to start evaluating other religions. If I answer that question, I’m going to be asked about every religion out there, and then I am playing to the very thing that I am seeking to avoid. The more I answer these questions, the more people want to say, “Ah, you describe yourself as a theologian,” or “Oh, you’re the one who is setting yourself up as a judge of religions.” I am damned if I do; I am damned if I don’t. I am happy to talk about my religion, but I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to talk about somebody else‘s, and part of that is out of conviction. Until I have mastered the art of living my faith, I’m not going to evaluate somebody else’s. Our church is very different in that we don’t ever focus on that. The motto of the church is taking Jesus as he is to people as they are. So it’s really more about: get your own life figured out first, and then don’t try to judge and fix somebody else quite yet.
