Why Phil Robertson is the Most Dangerous Man in America/What we need is more “dangerous” men and women like Phil Robertson in this world.

The headline reads: “A&E declares war on ‘Duck Dynasty’s’ Christian values.”  It seems the patriarch of the Robertson family made some “offensive” comments in an interview with GQ Magazine.  Before we go any further, mull that over for a moment.  A camo-wearing, bearded, red-kneck duck hunter being interviewed in a magazine called “Gentlemen’s Quarterly”?  Is the world as we know it coming to an end.  I’d say it is, but I digress.

Why is Phil Robertson the most dangerous man in America?  First of all, he’s a man of conviction.  He knows what he believes and he’s not afraid to say it.  This is a rare quality in America today and most sensible people will respect him for it even if they don’t agree with everything he says.

Second, he has God on his side.  His scripture quotes are accurate.  He and his family and company represent values that are fading away in our society.  Deep down I believe most of us wish we could return to the more simple life and that includes praise and worship of the One who gave us everything.  If God is for us, who can be against us?

Third, and most dangerous of all, he doesn’t care what you and I think.  He’s made his millions.  He and the family are set for life.  If the TV show goes away, he’ll just keep making duck calls, preaching the Gospel, and hunting his beloved acreage.  His devotion to God and family is real, born of a lifestyle that was full of sin.  He found Jesus and all he really wants is for us to find Him too.
And finally, at least for now, he has a big megaphone.  The TV show has given him a huge audience.  Thousands of people come to hear him and his sons preach the Gospel all over the country.  His church in West Monroe is full to overflowing every Sunday.  With or (hopefully) without the “Arts and Entertainment Network”, he will continue to be a force to be reckoned with.  The current controversy will just increase his fame and his influence.

What we need is more “dangerous” men and women like Phil Robertson in this world. The best thing that has came out of this is that it has people talking and, if just one person comes to know Christ through all this, it will have been worth all the hoopla.

Support those who take a stand for what they believe. It's been said that Christians are spewing hate speech. The Word of God is not hate speech and does not change, and the way I see it, if you have a problem with what it says take it up with the man above. I have a feeling He probably hasn't heard from you in quite a while. Christian's, it's time to rise up and take a stand for what you believe in. At every turn it seems like they want to force acceptance of sin off onto everyone. It's become a mentality of a "Anything Goes" type of world. Don't fall for it!
