    Yeah, kind of like the days of Noah.

    God will be shutting the door to the ark again--probably sooner than later.

    Will the Lord find "The Faith" when He returns? Yes, they are kept by the power of The Holy Spirit.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    I am not ashamed to admit that I shed a tear or two when Phil and Kay said their vows.

    May their godly and positive influence increase.

    Not the smartest, but definitely the most down-to-earth and God-fearing do watch it. Beats anything else on the one-eyed idol.

    Guess that depends on who you ask.

    Perhaps.

    Actually, the Duckers are anything but high browed elites!

    Heard that Jase, one of the stars of the show, wa sin NY for the premier showing, and stayed in trump Towers, and he went to ask aHotel worker where the bathroom wa, and he was taken out back,and told togo down the alley and good luck!

    he did not ask for that person tolose their job, but did say that he was :facially profiled!" due to the clerk not knowing that he has a long beard by choice!

    No inside joke. I shoulda said Duck Dynasty and the other is Honey Boo-boo. Are your comments about smart people an inside joke? And if so, who are the insiders?

    Ahhh. One of the kids from my SS class showed me that little tike in a spoof and she was going "Our fat makes us sassy".

    Could only shake my head.

    Nope. It was intended for anyone who thinks they are automatically more intelligent than the people whose politics and social philosophies differ from their own.

    Unless you count Phil Si and Willie as being resident Christian heavy thinkers?

    Well if some folks weren't always trying to score cool points in order to get their cohorts to say "good one", perhaps there wouldn't have been no talk of politics or social philosophies.

    Moved (since NOT a Baptist topic - these guys are all baptismal regeneration advocates). I enjoy the show about outdoors, family type.

    The danger of the Duck Dynasty gospel is that it comes from their background and influence of the Church of Christ movement. The Church of Christ doctrine is centered heavily upon “baptismal regeneration” – the teaching that baptism is necessary for salvation. For instance, the following is part of “How to Receive Salvation”- White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ (where the Robertson family attends church):

    The Bible teaches that a person receives God’s grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, publically confessing Christ, and being immersed or baptized into Christ (Luke 24:45-47; Acts 2:36-41; Romans 1:16-17; Romans 6:1-7; Romans 10:9-10; Galatians 3:26-27).

    If you examine the paragraph closely, you see that they have linked baptism with salvation. Both Phil and Willie use the language of “baptizing someone into Christ” in their videos. In fact, some Church of Christ congregations insist that a person’s baptism is not valid unless it’s performed through a Church of Christ assembly.
