Just a few thoughts around the recent firestorm surrounding the opinions of Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the family on the popular A&E program, Duck Dynasty.
While Phil’s comments were crude and maybe not the best tact to take, he was being honest and real. He addressed the questions GQ baited him with as Phil Robertson and used colorful language that is unique to him. Phil just made it clear this behavior is not his “sexual preference” and that it’s not logical. The Bible calls it unnatural. From a Bible perspective he’s on target about what a Holy God says about sin. Phil’s remarks were anti-sin, not anti-gay. He qualified that in a Phil sort of way. God is Holy and will not tolerate any sin. Pick your sin – lying, taking His name in vain, fornication, covetousness – it’s all worthy of death the bible says. Unfortunately none of us is without sin whatever our sins may be. And all of us deserve death for the wages of sin is death. Fortunately, Jesus Christ paid the sin penalty for each of us (regardless of our sins including homosexuality) and is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. God gave us a free will and the choice is ours to make. I would encourage you to read this: https://www.for10sake.com/heaven-your-home/
