“Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done.” – Romans 1:28, NLT
In a recent interview on The Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro talks with the Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson about God, the media, and Phil’s new show “In the Woods with Phil” that premiered online last Monday (10/30/2017). Phil shared with Ben the reasons why his previous show “Duck Dynasty” was canceled. In order for the show to continue, his sponsors gave Phil an ultimatum – take the name of Jesus and mentions of the Word of God out of the show, or they won’t sponsor him. Phil, of course, simply refused. Duck Dynasty continued to run the rest of its season with plenty of funds left – a further testimony of God’s goodness to those who obey Him.
Phil decided to no longer depend on the media and the government for show production. In the interview, he quotes several passages in Scripture about the evil in the current world that is right on target with the times we live in and staying faithful to God in the midst of these times. He also explained how important it is to use his fame from the “Duck Dynasty” show for God’s glory and depending on God, rather than the media and the government, as his source. This was why Phil decided to run a brand new show that will not censor out the Bible or the Name of Jesus.
