My Response to Phil Robertson
Duck Dynasty for many represents Christian values and morality., They have over 11 million viewers and are by far the biggest show on A&E. They have a $400 million dollars business. Phil Robertson is the head of the family.
Personally I am disappointed in the approach that Phil has taken. I believe that his crude statements could have been better spoken. When we as Christians stand for our Biblical values we must state them in respect for others. I am all for Phil speaking his mind and standing for what the Bible believes but I wish he would speak it with less crudeness.
That being said this is less about a mans words and more about a difference in what the Bible teaches and what the agenda of the homosexual movement is trying to achieve. All week long I have read and heard stories of their agenda being pushed. A Methodist pastor goes against his church's teaching and marries a gay couple, the courts tell the states that their laws upholding marriage between one man and one woman to be unconstitutional, and the courts say that a business owner must bake cake and take pictures at a gay wedding or shut down.
This is running rapid and what we believe is not taken into consideration. Christian beliefs are considered acharic and mean. We are told that all we must do is love and never talk about evil. Yet to love means also to say what is wrong.
So what should our respone be?
1. Yes when we speak the truth always speak the truth in love. Ephesians 4:15
We need to check our heart before we speak.
2. Let what we believe be based in scripture. Let the scripture speak for it self. 2 Timothy 2:15
The Bible has been around and survived a lot longer than we have.
3. Hold fast to our profession of faith and what we believe. Hebrews 10:23
We have a right to what we believe.
4. Know who our enemy is. We are not battling flesh and blood but the enemy. Ephesians 6:12
We are not fighting the person but the enemy.
5. Know that no matter what happens God has a plan. Jeremiah 29:11
Thanks for letting me express. What do you think?
