Once Were

Well, I wondered when the Duck Dynasty would enter the controversy phase. And boom it happens on the most polarizing issue of our time. I know this whole debate may strike deep emotion in you. What’s right, what’s wrong, who’s ok, who’s not, and then the whole freedom of speech thing!

So here’s there thoughts I have for followers of the Christ.

1. Stand with Christ alone
2. Expect that the message of Christ will create controversy
3. Remember what you once where and what you have been given
4. Give that same way in everything you do, speech, thoughts, time, etc.

And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:11 NIV)

Oh and it might be good to reread 1Corinthians 6 and understand why our bodies are not our own.

It’s not a free speech issue. Phil is free to speak his mind about homosexuality, and A&E is free to suspend him if they consider his speech to be offensive. If the government was censoring Phil, then it would be a free speech issue.


I agree, and actually didn’t mean to imply that it is. However, I have seen that argument thrown around all over the social media world. And I expect that this little thing will incite a lot of negative energy in people.

As followers of the Christ, we need to make sure we keep our focus on his message when we deal with this issue.
