People across the country have become addicted to the reality show “Duck Dynasty.” The show follows the adventures of a family in Louisiana that made its fortune by selling duck calls and related hunting supplies. What surprised some people is the Robertson family is filled with active church members. Phil, the patriarch who invented the duck call, is a church elder who frequently witnesses and preaches. In a recent interview, Phil said, “I liken it to the Book of Acts. I just give them the simple gospel—Jesus was born, died, was raised and is coming back. Then I’m on down the road. That will take care of any false doctrine. If they’re saved, they might not have everything straight. I doubt if we do. But if they hear the gospel and obey it, I’m happy for them.”
