This Is What Duck Dynasty's Robertson Did That Is Very Wrong

Here is what Duck Dynasty's Robertson said:

"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men," Robertson told GQ. "Don't be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers-they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right." The patriarch of the Robertson family said just putting one's faith in Jesus will help problems be solved.
This is what he did wrong:

He used the Apostle Paul's statement in Corinthians out of place. That shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the New Covenant and faith. The Apostle was telling believers to avoid the evils of the world. But the Apostle took the gospel, and was determined to know the gospel of the death and resurrection of Christ to the Gentiles.

You would never have seen Paul shouting at the world about the evils of this or that sin. That is actually the foundation of false religion. The Augustinians, Protestants and Catholics believed repentance came from turning away from individual sins. But that is incorrect. Repentance came and comes from turning away from unbelief. Swindlers, adulterers, drunkards can be saved by the power of the gospel, not by the need for an outward reformation or repudiation of these sins prior to salvation by the gospel!

So, Robertson was making the age old mistake that betrays his faith as being fake. Yes, fake faith comes from the elevation of this or that sin to the level of unbelief. Unbelief is the source of all sin and the gospel saves from unbelief.

From a political standpoint, he made a mistake saying Jim Crow was ok because it wasn't. Blacks made great strides for political freedom and financial independence until the Jim Crow laws stopped them.

And he said in an earlier interview circa 2010 that gays are murderers. That is a ridiculous statement since straights are murderers too! There are many law abiding gays and straights too!

Revelation Timeline

This timeline of the Book of Revelation, written after the destruction of the temple in 70 AD, was originally posted at this static page on this blog entitled Essential Articles/END TIMES:



Revelation

Here is a brief timeline regarding the Book of Revelation. Clearly, the book of Revelation was written after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The real destruction was to follow.

And clearly also, most of the prophets who were killed were killed in Jerusalem. The Great City clearly refers to Jerusalem multiple times. However, the destruction of the beast does not. I am putting this timeline out there. I believe it has merit and makes more sense than other timelines, especially Dispensationalist timelines which are created out of thin air:

1. Rev chapter 18 speaks to the destruction of Jerusalem but was written after the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. It could speak to the completed destruction after 70 AD, in 135 AD, when Jerusalem was literally ploughed under. In 70 AD, 30,000 He…

Predestined to Hell

The human mind cannot always take in the sobering reality of predestination. We who are predestined are greatful, but sorrowful. We know many we love are not so predestined. It hurts. Paul said he could wish that he would suffer if his kinsmen would be saved.

But it is also that same Apostle Paul who told the truth in Romans chapter 9, that some vessels were created for special use, like fancy kitchenware, and others were created for menial use, to be thrown away.

The truth is, sin is created by those who are not kept from it. The devil and Adam created sin in their acts of defiance, having been permitted to have a will apart from the will of God. They used that will to create sin. It is always that way. Only God is good, and only His Will is sinless.

So then, there are a few predestined to heaven, through God given faith. And there are many, including many who believed in predestination like Calvin and the Protestants, who are predestined to hell. They were created for menial use onl…
