Beardless member of reality TV show clan says church must stay connected to culture

Alan Robertson, best known as the beardless son of reality TV show "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson, is a pastor who officiated his parents' re-commitment ceremony. In his latest appearance he is exhorting that other pastors should promote Christian values in the wider culture and political sphere.

Alan Robertson admitted that was as the sole Robertson male without a beard, he is somewhat of a misfit in the family. He said his family is grateful to have the cable show as a platform to share 'the good news of Jesus.'

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Robertson, speaking at the Family Research Council's "Watchmen on the Wall" pastors' retreat, says "Politics are part of what governs our nation, and so we want that infused with the spiritual and the godly."

A speaker at an event that drew hundreds of pastors from across the country, Robertson says that he has a new perspective. No longer a full-time pastor, Robertson is now working in the family duck call business and appearing on the cable show.

Hunger never takes a vacation --

"For 22 years, I was inside the church - sort of inside my bubble I called it - of just doing my week to week in my own little community, and sometimes you kind of lose sight of the big picture," Robertson said. "I think as pastors they have to realize we're a part of the body of Christ that's worldwide, and so we've got to let people know what's going on."

Robertson says that church leaders can accomplish this by being a part of the wider culture and political world so that both are influenced by the biblical truths they teach.

"If the cultures crumbles around all our church buildings, then what have we done?" Robertson said.

Robertson pointed to the religious leaders in Europe have not done so, which has resulted in empty churches and declining cultures.

"You know, I go over to Europe now, and I see empty museums is what [churches have] become, and that's because they lost connection with culture," Robertson said. "And so much of it was because they were in the own liturgy, and they were in their own doctrinal debates and discussions, and they lost sight of the culture.

"I want to encourage pastors," Robertson said. "I mean I feel like I have a broader view now that I've been out for the last two years, traveling around the country sort of being a 'Duck Dynasty' kind of person.

"But it's really given me a great perspective, and so I'm encouraging pastors - look, politics are part of what governs our nation and so we want that infused with the spiritual and the godly," he said.

Robertson admitted that was as the sole Robertson male without a beard, he is somewhat of a misfit in the family. He said his family is grateful to have the cable show as a platform to share "the good news of Jesus."
