Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame shared a personal story of conversion. Speaking at the Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, on August 27, he said “God’s not like our government.” Wearing his ever-present camouflage clothing and speaking in his characteristic earnest manner, Robertson said, “God’s not like our government - can’t pay him off. Can’t rope-a-dope him - get around him.”

“You say, ‘God is just.’ So for the saved here, I’m like, be thankful and you are blessed because your sins have been forgiven, your sins are covered. No sin will never ever be counted against you. It’ll give you piece of mind, knowing on top of that you can be raised from the dead.”

Robertson shared that he had developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. “I ran with the wicked for 28 years. The last 42 have been a lot better.” Born and bred in Louisiana, Robertson told the congregation, “I can tell you this Texas – fame, I have it. It can’t remove my sin, Texas. Fame can’t do it.”

“All the money the money that I’d ever earn, it can’t raise me from the dead, right?” Robertson said.

Robertson, who was born in 1946, is well known for his politically and morally conservative views. At this year's Western Conservative Summit, which was also attended by Donald Trump, he spoke about the moral underpinnings of the American polity in light of the Obama's administration's policy of advancing the doctrine of transgenderism. 

“When you allow men to determine what’s right and what’s wrong, you get decisions like the five judges who said, ‘I may not know we have 7,000 years of history of men marrying women — a male and a female.
“For that reason, they’ll leave their father and mother and cleave to one another and become one flesh.” I know it’s been that way for 7,000 years, but we know best for what’s everybody,’” he said.
The “Duck Dynasty” star finished by speaking directly to the issue of transgender restrooms, which he has vocally opposed. “Now there’s grown men barging in on you ladies when you’re putting your Maybelline on,” he said. To applause, he said, “Here’s a newsflash, you see this,” he said, tugging on his beard. “This be male. All you ladies, you will never ever catch this cat coming up in your bathroom.”
