“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20

I grew up outside West Monroe, Louisiana. In fact, my home place is only a few miles from Phil Robertson and his wife, Miss Kay. Phil and his family have become quite famous from the exceedingly popular A&E Duck Dynasty TV program.

My brother lives in West Monroe and knows the Robertson family really well. One of Phil’s sons is my bother’s neighbor. Some of their shows were filmed in my brother’s pasture.

The Robertsons are to be admired for their stand for Jesus Christ. When the A&E producers told Phil that he couldn’t say grace before the family dinner, Phil’s reply was, “Then we won’t do the show.”

There have been several times when A&E wanted to leave out references to God, and Phil’s reply was always, “Then we won’t do the show.” We are all familiar with A&E’s canceling some of the episodes of Duck Dynasty because of Phil’s comments about homosexuals. We also know how the Robertsons stood up for their biblical beliefs. Because of public outcry, these episodes were reinstated.

The popularity and the high sale of their products just show how many support the wholesome Christian values the Robertsons exhibit, not only on the show but also in their daily lives off camera.

Phil describes his early adult years as “romping, stomping, and ripping.” Then he met Jesus Christ at age 28, and his life was turned around. He now travels all over the country spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. Phil’s sins were washed away, he was taught a better way to live, and he is guaranteed an eternal inheritance.

Would you be willing to stand up for Jesus Christ even if it meant a loss of fame and money? Are you afraid or embarrassed to share your faith and to tell others about Jesus?
