A&E's hit reality series "Duck Dynasty" has made celebrities out of Duck Commander Phil Robertson and his family: his wife Kay and their bearded, camo-clad sons Willie, Jase and Jeptha, "Uncle Si," Phil's younger brother.
The Christian family hasn't been shy about living their faith on their hit TV reality show and they are taking advantage of this opportunity to be "salt and light" in the entertainment media. The Robertsons have gained a voice and a presence in a culture-shaping industry.
Take a look at some wonderful quotes about their faith.
1. JASE ROBERTSON - ABSTINENCE BEFORE MARRIAGE
Jase and Missy Robertson said in a recent interview that they chose to remain abstinent until marriage to follow God's desire. The video recording has been posted on the website of the non-profit group Abstinence Clearinghouse.
"We were both virgins when we got married until our wedding night."
"We decided to do it God's way and basically had a godly agreement that we would help each other get to heaven."
2. MISSY ROBERTSON - FAITH ATTRACTION
Missy added to what Jase declared above:
"What attracted us to each other was what we saw in each other in our faith."
"We have our core values as a family, and we've kept them, that's our number one priority is making sure our kids know that so they also will have the same values, no matter what circumstances come your way."
3. PHIL ROBERTSON - FAME COMES AND GOES
Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Robertson family, in an interview to The Christian Post in April, said that his family has managed to stay humble, amid all of the fame, because they know that all blessings come from God.
"Money can come and go, and fame comes and goes. Peace of mind and a relationship with God is far more important, so this is the precedent that we've set in our lives. The bottom line is, we all die, so Jesus is the answer. Many have told me through the years: 'I think I'll take my chances without Jesus.' And I always come back and say, 'so what chance is that?'"
4. KAY ROBERTSON - "DUCK DYNASTY" IS MISSION
Kay Robertson said of "Duck Dynasty": "It's a total mission and ministry."
5. UNCLE SI ROBERTSON - RESSURRECTION IS TRUE
Uncle Si shares his anecdotal wisdom and philosophy on life in his new book, Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle.
In the second of two LifeWay videos promoting the book, Si speaks candidly about the resurrection.
"Just like He raised His son from the dead, He promises that if you believed in His son, He will raise you from the dead. And look, that's what we're banking on. That's what all the Robertsons are banking on."
6. WILLIE ROBERTSON - STUPID FAMOUS PEOPLE YOU CAN BAPTIZE
Willie Robertson spoke at Harding University, among other things, about all the amazing things he's done, the famous he knows and what sets him apart.
"[I] know a lot of famous people, done a lot of cool things. Tell you what seperates me from the guys I know is knowing this (holding up Bible). The famous people I know that have so much money, it's just stupid let me tell you what they want to know from me. It's not hunting, it's not TV, it's what I gathered over my life from this."
