“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson has come out with a new book that claims to be “blowing the lid off the lies that are destroying” America.
The conservative Christian reality star spoke with The Christian Post to talk about the book and how coming to Christ at the age of 28 helped him leave his sinful life in the past.
The 72-year-old patriarch of A&E’s hit reality series and the co-owner of the Duck Commander Company released his new title The Theft of America’s Soul on Tuesday.
The book purports to expose what he says are 10 essential deceptions and schemes being used by the devil to “steal, kill and destroy America’s soul.” The new book also shares what Robertson calls 10 counter-truths to those lies.
In an interview, Robertson explained that he was in part inspired to write the book by witnessing how prevalent issues of drug addiction and sexually transmitted diseases are in today’s American society.
Robertson said he fears that United States — as it backs away from its founding on “Judeo-Christian principles”— will one day dissolve because God could leave the country to wallow in its own wickedness.
“I hope America won’t be like the Roman Empire,” Robertson explained as he proceeded to quote Romans 1:28: “Since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, God gave them over to a depraved mind to do what ought not to be done.”
Robertson said the idea of the book is simple: to get people to embrace living a godly life and to get them to love God and love their neighbor.
“You go out and get a job and you work and you feed your family. You are the father and you have a mother and you raise your children and you teach them, correct them and rebuke and them and train them,” Robertson detailed, after explaining that millions of Americans are suffering from some type of drug addiction that has left them hopeless.
“We have lost that in America across the board and we are looking at the results of it. I am just trying to remind people that if we keep this up, this whole things is going to fall down upon us.”
The 10 “lies” being used to “destroy” America that Robertson highlighted in the book are:
- God is dead
- There is no devil
- The truth is relative
- God did not create life
- Sex is for self-gratification
- Virtue is outdated
- Laws can be ignored or changed if they are inconvenient
- Unity is not possible
- Church participation and day-to-day life should be kept separate
- Christians should shut their traps
When asked about the lie of sex being for self-gratification, Robertson stated that the Centers for Disease Control has reported that there are as many as 110 million sexually transmitted infections in the United States.
As STD rates continue to rise to record levels, Robertson believes that this is because too many people are not following God’s design for their lives.
