And as he reclined at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him. And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?" And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners." - Mark 2:15-17 (ESV)
To be honest I have never watched "Duck Dynasty" nor found them compelling or even Christian, per se. They are part of the NAR dominionist movement to conquer the cultural hill of entertainment and as such they are always lacking in being accurate doctrinally. That is because their primary goal is entertaining and political, not to promote the actual gospel of Jesus Christ. Because the apostate church is more about performance than reality, they turn a blind eye to the fact that the cast of Duck Dynasty is actually worth over 100 million dollars. With this as the backdrop it appears there is a controversy brewing in Duckland. The above linked article from Charisma briefly gets into it and so should we. So, let us reason once more together.
'"Ducky Dynasty's" Sadie Robertson Huff, daughter of Korie and Willie Robertson, has been called out by her fans as "woke" and saying she is "no longer a Christian" because she chose to take her family on a recent trip to Disney World in Florida.' - Charisma News
You have to marvel at the arrogance of people who are probably not saved declaring other people are no longer saved. Without getting into the once saved always saved debates, there are apparently plenty of churched people who think you can lose your salvation if you take your family to Disney World. This is the end result of absurd theology being perpetrated against people who have been duped into believing they are saved. This is also the end result of mixing the carnal politics of this world with the holiness of God and His church. I want you to imagine if you will that on the Day of Judgment, people will stand before Jesus Christ and He will say, "I'd like to let you in but, c'mon, you took your family to Disney Land." Or that Jesus will declare you to be too "woke" or some other nonsensical political pejorative. Or that Jesus will be waiting to review your voting pattern and say, "I'd like to let you in but, Clinton in 96? C'mon!" This may seem funny, but this teaching makes a mockery of God and sin. The NAR, dominionist, apostate church has convinced millions of people when they stand before Christ He is going to want to discuss what they did about OTHER people's sin. Beloved, He is not. We will have enough trouble answering for our own.
The bigger question here is - why do we care! Why do we care where a reality TV persona chooses to take her family and why do we equate eternal life with it? We do so because we continue to be taught so poorly. I saw a tweet recently from Dr. Michael Brown asking a hypothetical question of imagine what would happen if Jesus asked us on the Day of Judgment what we did with our diet! Are you kidding me! Hey, I'd like to let you in, but do you know how many Mallomars you had in your lifetime? Are we now proffering a works-based salvation? The bible is a two-edged sword because it cuts against us, to our core. The apostate church however has taught churched folk to wield it as a blunt instrument to smack unbelievers upside the head with.
"Many have unfollowed Robertson Huff on social media because of the trip. And while she agrees that Disney is "corrupt" and does stand for things she disagrees with, she is urging Christians to stop engaging in "cancel culture" as many leftists and non-Christians have over the past few years." - Charisma News
