Quoting from the Bible can get you in trouble these days. Just ask Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame, who’s recent Easter sermon to his church has landed him in hot water – again. Or David and Jason Benham, who recently lost their upcoming HGTV show, Flip It Forward, for publicly expressing their Bible-based beliefs.
But exactly what is it that’s so offensive? Check out this video by David Benham in which he takes a look at 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 – the Bible passage that got Phil Robertson in trouble. Here, we see that the message that Robertson shared is actually a hope-filled promise of victory that sets all of us free from our sins – no matter what the flavor.
And Benham also encourages each of us – no matter which side we’re on – to read the Bible for ourselves and let God’s Word speak for itself.
