Bruce Walker at Americanthinker.com has some thoughts about how Christian Duty does not necessarily mean government is the best solution to problems. His emphasis is on individual responsibility, not government action.
I don’t know if I agree with everything he says, and I don’t know if he has gotten Mike Huckabee down correctly, but I found his thoughts interesting and in some ways similar to mine.
Here is an excerpt:
“Did Christ ever say his followers should ask Rome to do more for the welfare of its subjects? Or did Christ ask each individual Christian to personally do more to feed the hungry, to comfort the sick, to care for the widows and orphans, and to seek justice and mercy? Rome was a welfare state. The urban masses of Rome lived on bread and circuses.”
