Editorial: Duck Dynasty & the Bible


Of course the issue of the week was Phil Robertson's comments about homosexuality being a sin. Some pundits are trying to hedge their own position by saying they agree with what Mr. Robertson said, but not how he said it? He paraphrased Leviticus 18 from the Hebrew scriptures (Old Testament), and then he quoted I Corinthians 6:9-10 from the New Testament, which was written by the Apostle Paul. The Apostle Paul is known as the apostle of grace, and yet this writing of Paul's was written after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, therefore, it is part of what Christians are still commanded to follow. It is not a "law that was fulfilled" which is a misapplication of Matthew 5:17, but rather is a post "nailed to the cross" scripture that is still binding on Christians!
