Duck Dynasty Star Willie Robertson Wooed by GOP for Congress Seat

Congressman Robertson does have a nice ring to it! Reportedly, Duck Dynasty reality star Willie Robertson is being courted by lead GOP representatives. The representatives, per The Washington Examiner, are hoping the star throws his bandanna into the Congress race.  The Washington Examiner reports:

“My boys want to run Willie Robertson for the seat,” an outside adviser to House GOP leadership told The Washington Examiner. Some key Republican operatives are eager to woo one of the hit show’s stars–Willie Robertson–to run for the seat given up by retiring Republican Rep. Rodney Alexander. Congressman Alexander has shown distaste with the partisan antics, and accepted a position to join the cabinet staff of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.

Robertson refers to himself as an “redneck millionaire” and currently is the Chief Executive Officer of Duck Commander and Buck Commander in Louisiana. The Buck Commander website depicts a serious picture of the GOP interest. He is covered in camouflage and seen holding a firearm. The power of underestimating an individual seems to be a sure bet in Robertson’s case. His bio is impressive, per the site:

In 2006, Willie began a new pursuit when he started Buck Commander. Willie and the Buckmen travel all over the country chasing white-tail deer, having a good time at hunting camp, and creating the Buckmen series of DVD’s and the popular television show Buck Commander Protected by Under Armour on Outdoor Channel.
Willie is executive producer of both TV shows and has a passion for inspiring future hunters by showing the outdoor lifestyle and hunting experience in the most fun and entertaining way. His unique perspective helps makes Duck and Buck Commander TV shows, DVD’s and products stand out in the crowd.
Willie loves being outdoors with his family and friends and is happiest at home in West Monroe, La with his wife Korie and children, John Luke, Sadie, Will and Bella. When he is not working you will catch him on his tractor bush-hogging a field, earphones blaring, thinking of the next idea that will keep his companies at the top of the heap.

The Buckmen arrived in time for a new season and their numbers are pretty impressive. During the third season finale, E! reports the show drew in 9.6 million viewers “making it the most watched A&E telecast ever.” The show premiers tonight for season four and many more are looking forward to a season of Robertson and Uncle Si. The stars of the show reap over $200,000 per episode, and the network is knocking on the door of the bearded four for more seasons. E! announced a new cast member will be joining the show as well, “Phil Robertson’s eldest son, Alan Robertson. Get ready to gasp because…he doesn’t even have a beard! Shocking, we know.”

Roberston has yet to respond fully to the suggestion that GOP heads are interested in him running for the Congress seat. Fox News caught up with the man of the hour and Robertson simply stated, “I’m kinda busy right now.” The Blaze sat down with the CEO extraordinaire earlier this year on his views of gun laws:

We’re certainly pro-second amendment and pro-guns. It’s not just our livelihood, but that’s what we like to do, you know: we hunt. I think it’s the person behind it, and you know, who’s doing these crazy, evil things. I just think it’s evil and I think that certain people are evil, and whether they do it with a gun or a car or airplane or bottle of poison, you know, evil people are gonna do evil things whether they have a weapon or not.

The reality star has made no excuses for his faith, although he has never claimed a specific religion, Robertson told The Blaze “Faith is the number one thing in our lives, and so everything revolves around it: our marriages, our families, our business.” Commanding a level of respect for his business sense and ability to say what’s on his mind, the GOP representatives may be interested, but they have to keep in mind; Robertson is not bashful or a guy with conformity on the mind. He marches to his own drummer and seems quite pleased with the results. Tune into A&E tonight at 10 p.m. EST to catch up on the season 4 premier of Duck Dynasty.

    Let us answer the question: What must I do to be saved under the terms of the New Covenant? All Christians from the Day of Pentecost, until the present, were and are saved under the terms of the New Covenant, also called the New Testament.


    1. Believe in Jesus. (John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.)

    Is this verse true? Yes, but does it include all the requirements for salvation? No, it does not. It does not say that all you have to do to be saved is believe in Jesus. Even demons believe that Jesus is the Son of God.(Luke 8:26-31)

    2. Believe and be baptized. (Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.)

    Is this verse true? Yes, but it does not detail all that men have believe and do to be saved.

    3. Confess and believe. (Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;)

    This verse is true, but is does not include all of the requirements for salvation.

    4. Call on the name of the Lord. (Acts 2: 21 ‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’)

    Is this verse true? Yes. Does this verse explain the meaning of calling on the name of the Lord? No, it does not. All of the relevant verses concerning salvation and forgiveness of sin are needed to understand what is meant by calling on the name of the Lord. Being obedient to the gospel is calling on the name of the Lord. Saying the man-made sinner’s prayer is not calling on the name of the Lord. There is no verse of Scripture that includes a sinner’s prayer under the New Covenant.

    5. Be born of water and Spirit.(John 3:5 Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter the kingdom of God.)

    Is this verse true? Yes, but it does not explain the process to be born of water and the Spirit.

    6. By grace through faith. (Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;)

    Is this verse true? Of course it is. We have the opportunity for salvation because of God’s grace, however, this verse does not say that we are saved by grace alone nor does it say we are saved by faith only. Salvation is the gift mentioned in this verse.

    7. Be buried with Christ in baptism. (Romans 6:4-5 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in the newness of life. 5 For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection,)

    Are these verses true? Yes, but baptism alone is not the only requirement in order to walk in newness of life. Unsaved men do not walk in newness of life. We are told to walk in a new life after we are baptized. We are not told to walk in a new life the minute we believe. Water baptism is the final step to becoming saved.

    8. Water baptism. (1 Peter 3:21 Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you—not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience—through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.)

    Is it true that water baptism saves us? Yes, but this verse does not say, baptism alone, saves us.

    9. Be baptized calling on His name. (Acts 22:16 Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name!)

    Is this verse true? Yes, but it does not list all of the requirements for salvation?

    10. Repent. (Acts 3:19 Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.)

    Is this verse true? Of course it is, however, it is not all one has to do to have sins forgiven. Repentance is making the intellectual commitment to turn from sin and unbelief and to turn toward God.

    11. Baptized into Christ. (Galatians 3:27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.)

    Is this verse true? Yes, however, you cannot be baptized into Christ unless you believe, confess, and repent prior to being baptized. You are not clothed with Christ the minute you believe. You are not clothed with Christ the minute you confess. You are not clothed with Christ the minute you repent. You are clothed with Christ the minute you are baptized into Him.

    12. Repent and be baptized. (Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the holy Spirit.)

    Is this verse true? Yes, but is does mean that you can have your sins forgiven without having faith and confessing Jesus as the Son of God? No.

    13. Believe in the Lord Jesus. (Acts 16:30-31…”Sirs what must I do to be saved? 31 They said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”)

    Is this verse true? Yes, however, it doe not state that men are saved by “faith only.”


    1. God provides a Savior in Jesus Christ. (1 John 4:10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.)

    2. God makes His grace available to all men. (Titus 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men.)


    1. You must believe. (John 3:16)

    2. You must confess. (Romans 10:9-10, Acts 8:37)

    3. You must repent. (Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19)

    4. You must be baptized. (Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38)


    1. You must remain faithful until death. (Revelation 2:11, Matthew 10:22)


    The Bible says we are saved by grace. It does not say we are saved by grace alone.

    The Bible says we are saved by believing in Jesus. It does not say we are saved by faith alone.

    The Bible says we are saved by confessing Jesus as Lord and believing that God raised him from the dead. It does not say that confessing Him and believing in His resurrection alone, that we will be saved.

    The Bible does say we must repent in order to have our sins forgiven. The Bible does not say that repentance alone saves us.

    The Bible teaches us that water baptism is for the forgiveness of sins and that it saves us. It does not say that water baptism alone saves us.

    In a honest hermeneutical approach to the question “What are we saved by? The answer has to include the following:


    Which one of God’s requirements for salvation can we eliminate and still be saved?
