‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Releasing 5-Week Church Curriculum
CBS Houston ^ | Feb 4, 2014 | AP via CBS Houston

Posted on 02/05/2014 8:59:44 AM PST by GIdget2004

“Duck Dynasty” could be coming to a church near you.

Korie Robertson, wife of Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson, and her mother, Chrys Howard, are releasing a book and DVD set of a five-week church curriculum through Zondervan.

“Faith Commander: Living Five Values from the Parables of Jesus” will be released in May.

“With the ‘Faith Commander’ curriculum, we took some commonly found themes that the show ‘Duck Dynasty’ actually teaches,” Robertson said in a statement. “We use these, not in a preaching sort of way, but really the kind of way that shows how we live our lives and the way our family works. This faith is behind who we are as a family and what keeps us together and strong.”

The book focuses on the five themes found in the parables of Jesus, which include, faith, forgiveness, obedience, prayer and kindness.

“We chose the parable of Jesus because sometimes they are not always studied like they should be,” Howard said in a statement. “God put those in the Bible for us to learn from. Willie, Phil (Robertson), Alan (Robertson), and well, all the guys are great storytellers. In ‘Faith Commander,’ they explain the parables as stories to bring people closer to God. We really believe that this is going to benefit the entire church family – kids, adults and teens. It’s something families can all study together just like they watch the TV show together.”

I don’t look to corporate leaders/TV personalities for spiritual growth.

Nor do I look to pastors/theologians for business strategies.

GOOD for them. They are putting g their faith where there mouth is. A foundation in their daily lives.

Simply doing what Jesus asked believers in Him to do.

God bless them. The viewers can decide what it is they like to see and believe or not.

Christians are often timid and tentative about bringing up the discussion in a public venue. We have been so jumped upon by the political correctness police, as to be suppressed..!!!

Let us be as brave as the DUCK DYNASTY. There are few TV programs with Christian standards. Actually Christians are essentially persecuted today in schools, public arenas, etc. God's commandments are for our good and not following them is sinful.

God forgive us our sins and God bless America.

From what we know, they are a remarkable family.

The Robertsons are living proof for all to see that we have not yet been succumbed to the “Fundamental Transformation” of America pursued by the godless socialists who have temporarily taken the reins of power through deceit and dishonesty.

God Bless Them all and may God continue to Bless America.

Do you understand this family was preaching the gospel outside of churches long before there was a TV show?

Phil was baptising folks in the river near their house while those those TV personalities were still living at home with Mom & Dad. Willie run a church youth camp before he was working for Duck Commander.

I know that. They are great people of faith.

But I stand by what I said.

I would say these are Spiritual People more than they are corporate leaders and TV personalities. They have said the TV stuff is not going to last. While it does, they will use it to get the message of the Gospel to more people.

Cheers!

I am strongly impressed by this family as I learn more and more about them outside of the TV show.

There are a lot of info from them that isn’t filter by A&E. It is rewarding to read and watch.

Over the last 30 years we have seen enough gimmicks and the ends justfies the means techniques. The American church has been wounded by all of them.

We need to follow what Scripture teaches, not man made techniques, in this case cute evangelism.

Have you ever listened to any of the Robertson's sermons as given in the church they attend/officiate?

I'm just curious how you know this is a man-made technique and/or cute evanglism.

Those folks teach scripture, not their own personal interpertation. They use Duck Dynasty to gather attention. The use the attention to teach the Gospel.

If you can show me where they have done otherwise, I would like to see it. They are sinners, just like you and me and don't claim otherwise. But their serious moments in speaking of God, are actual scripture.

Actually, the answer is yes.

But just based on the above article what I am seeing is a works based righousness being heaped on the reader.

Don’t think it this is about them. I watch DD and they are clearly fine Christian people. However this is not a special standard I have for them. I am very careful with with I invest my spiritual time on.

I'm really not trying to be arguementative, but rather learn what you are reading to give that impression. I look at the article and see:

The book focuses on the five themes found in the parables of Jesus, which include, faith, forgiveness, obedience, prayer and kindness.

“We chose the parable of Jesus because sometimes they are not always studied like they should be,” Howard said in a statement. “God put those in the Bible for us to learn from. Willie, Phil (Robertson), Alan (Robertson), and well, all the guys are great storytellers. In ‘Faith Commander,’ they explain the parables as stories to bring people closer to God.

...

“There are some things that the Bible tells us are God’s guidelines,” Robertson said. “He gives us examples throughout the Bible so that we may live a better life and those are the lessons that we have tried to cover in ‘Faith Commander.’ We hope that people will bring these lessons into their own family through this curriculum.”

I see nothing I would describe as a works based righteousness. I see suggestions we should live following God's instructions. Can you help me understand what you saw?

Fair enough.

But, whenever I hear someone talk about works-based righteousness, I'm reminded of the scripture below, which says to me that we need to walk the walk as well as talk the talk.

James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Thank you for the links. I will watch them.

I too am very impressed with The Robertsons. They are not phonies. They are who they are - Good Old American Know-how, Backbone and Charm. I find them charming and admire their backbone. I admire how Phil and Kay stay in their old home even though they could afford a mansion. Hopefully, Willie won't succumb to the Darkside of our pompous, shallow, boring mainstream society. I was happily amazed and impressed with all of Phil Robertson's patents. I so enjoy Phil's and Kay's attempts to teach their yuppie grandchildren how to hunt, fish, clean fish, cook, etc. Finally I love how the family gets together every night to Thank God and appreciate being a family. How many families identify with that? Quite a few is my guess.
