Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" opened up about his controversial comments about homosexuality last year, attributing his statements to the Word of God.
Last December, the Robertson family patriarch made waves when discussing the Bible as well as homosexuality with GQ magazine. His comments resulted in a suspension from A&E's "Duck Dynasty" for a period of time. Today, the 68-year-old reality television star is promoting his new book unPHILtered: The Way I See It when he spoke with Us Weekly about his past comments.
"All I did was quote a passage of Scripture from antiquity," Robertson said. "They're mad at me, but I'm really just quoting what God said, so He's the one they have a problem with." more >>
It is possible for us to accept Christ's forgiveness and still deal with past mistakes and struggles. We all have trouble when dealing with regrets because sometimes it may not have been the best decision for our future. But if we don't get over the past we cannot move forward.
However, just because we feel a certain way doesn't mean that it is God who is making us remember our scary past. We have to remember to always move forward and not backwards. It is time for us to walk in faith and not in regret.
Below are a few Bible verses that can help you overcome regret: more >>

A self-professed evangelical Christian who runs a website dedicated to informing believers about evolution appeared on the Bad Christian podcast this week where he discussed why debating about the topic could hurt the Gospel.
God of Evolution.com creator, Tyler Francke, believes strongly that evolution and the Bible do not contradict each other and said that an old Earth and the evolutionary theory make the most sense to him after observing the available evidence in various forms of science.
"I think that evolution can be everything that the scientific evidence indicates that it is and that Christianity can be everything that the Bible says it is and should be and that those two do not need to come into any type of conflict just because of what those things say," said Francke during the podcast. more >>

Award-winning Christian musician Michael Gungor of the musical collective Gungor, who recently rattled the Christian world when he argued that the Bible should not be read literally, took his arguments a little further last month when he said Jesus could have been wrong about the creation story, or might have lied about it to fit in with popular culture.
