Last year, Mike Huckabee spoke at a Florida Renewal Project event for pastors where he warned the audience that no other country around the world would fear America until America began to fear God.
In a video posted on YouTube by an attendee, Huckabee can be seen speaking at an event organized by David Lane and featuring remarks from David Barton and Bob McEwan and declaring that America was founded by God and that the key to political success is national spiritual revival.
“We’re at a place in our world right now where nobody trusts America, nobody believes in America, and sadly nobody fears America,” he said, adding that he doesn’t “care if people like us around the world” because the only thing that matters is that they fear us. “I never want this country to get to the place where people do not fear the United States of America. But I don’t want to get to the place where this country does not fear God because if we don’t fear God, nobody will fear us.”
“God help us all when we cannot understand that a nation that has turned its back on our Founder — and I’m not talking about George Washington, I’m talking about the fact that this nation would not exist apart from the intervention and providence of a Holy God,” Huckabee said. “If it were not for His intervention, there is no way this country ever would have existed.”
