The Dark Side Of Duck Dynasty Exposed (MUST-SEE VIDEO)

Duck Dynasty is one of the most watched shows in the history of television, but most people do not know the dark and desperate past of the Robertson family....

Duck Dynasty is one of the most watched shows in the history of television. It follows the Robertson family and their business, The Duck Commander.

What most people don’t know is the dark past that only their faith in God helped get them through. The Robertson family has battled drugs, alcoholism, and suicidal tendencies. Through all this pain great things have emerged.



click-here-to-read-the-rest-of-this-story-on-before-its-news-from-now-the-end-begins-nteb-geoffrey-griderThis is their story as filmed by I Am Second. It is about 30 minutes long. If you can’t watch the whole thing… just watch the first 3 minutes. You’ll be glad you did.

NTEB is run by end times author and editor-in-chief Geoffrey Grider. Geoffrey runs a successful web design company, and is a full-time minister of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. In addition to running NOW THE END BEGINS, he has a dynamic street preaching outreach and tract ministry team in Saint Augustine, FL.
  • This is one show that I appreciate. His faith in Jesus is to be commended and not condemn. We all have a past and by GOD s Grace and mercy He has forgiven and forgotten my ugly past

    • The problem is their not Christian. They belong to the Church of Christ, which teaches that your saved through being baptized.

      • I’m sorry but I thought your name was God instead of Steve since you are deciding who is Christian and who isn’t

        • The Lord decides who is saved, but He has also told us through the word how to be saved. They teach salvation comes through believing the gospel and being baptized. This is another gospel, which Paul would call a false gospel, and as such makes them an enemy of the grace of God and the cross of Christ. Just because you cannot accept this is not Steve’s fault. Read the word of God and you will find that the heresies this family espouses will send many to hell if they also follow them in their false faith.

  • Thank you Judy

  • Great video. Great testimonies. And we serve and worship a great God.

  • I couldn’t watch just the first 3 minutes; I had to watch the whole thing. Wow, what an amazing testimony and I’m forwarding this to all of my unsaved friends too.

  • Yes, please share this will all your friends, especially the unsaved. What a GREAT testimony the Robertsons have about the Lord Jesus Christ!

    • NTEB: How many Christians that did have a dark side to them?

  • So you are exposing in a good way?….because normally the word expose is used for negative reasons…

  • What an inspiring must see video!!!!! This is not a video bashing this family. It is a video that this family talks about there hardships and have always found there way back to God and what he would have them do!!!!! They expose themselves and what they have been through!!!!!

  • I also have a list of things that I’m not proud of in my past as well. But they were done before I knew the truth. And there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. It’s not called Born Again for no reason, it truely is amazing how you are changed!

  • this is what is awesome bout this show they show us what they’ve overcome by the Blood of the lamb and we can too bless them

  • Thank you NTEB’s for this video. What courage to talk about their roadblocks and stumbling in their lives. I never knew how deep their faith was. It will carry through life to death to eternity. Bless God and His Son and Holy Spirit.

  • to exsort attention to yourself or your group is error,this short lived reality feeds on ego and how great I(we) are,and has ive said before will short be tumbling down ducks and all because we’ve built our house on the sand and will literally come to and end.and of the last ufo sighting over uk,there on the move already.

  • Everyone has their ups and downs, including this family. The fact of the matter is that they learned from their mistakes and have moved on. At the end of every show, they pray to our savior Jesus before every meal. They have the faith and believe that Jesus Christ is their savior as well. Wow, why do so many people dwell on the past? Look to the future, when we can finally say that we are a blessed nation again where there’s not so much hate anymore like there is now!! Leave the Robertsons alone and look at yourself. Look in the mirror, when you fix yourself, then you can judge others…….or when God says you can, which will be never!! The truth is, the Robertsons have seen where they made their mistakes and fixed them!!! God thanks for your grace and mercy!!! I ask you to keep loving us and to please never turn your back on us!!!!!

  • My wife shared the video with me on her iPad before Thanksgiving, and it brought tears to our eyes. The amazing Grace of our Sublime LORD & Saviour Jesus Christ in their lives, as well as ours is truly awe-inspiring!

    We who know the LORD intimately as children of the Kingdom are privileged beyond measure.. so much to be thankful for every day!
    May GOD continue to bless His true church, and our troubled nation- that His Light may continue to shine in a ever darkening world (Isaiah 60:1-5).

  • write more later haven’t had a chance to watch it yet BUT it is awesome to see how they show their dark side, and how Jesus brought them into HIS marvelous light, I thank God for this show, so many relate to them, just plain ole folks living fussing funning and PRAISGING GOD ALL THE WAY THRU LIFE

  • I had seen this awhile ago great testimony, and the good part is too, that their show is loved by all. Seeds will be planted by them as it should be.

  • Is Tribulation the wrath of God?
    That’s right we are so much more holy than the Apostles and the early church, we deserve not to suffer, don’t we. God is not the one that causes persecution upon us. That is where pretribber and others go wrong, thinking, tribulation is the wrath of God. But they won’t consider God’s wrath is after the tribulation period, that is when things get ugly for the wicked, it’s party hardy for them, until then. It’s the saints that suffer in the tribulation.
    Mat 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
    Mat 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
    Mat 24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
    Mat 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
    Rev 18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
    Living deliciously is not tribulation, people! But fire from heaven is the wrath of God!

    • @Ron,
      We know that the tribulation and wrath of God are not the same. People of all ages, cultures, races, etc. have, and will continue to have tribulations here on this earth until the Lord comes back. As I’ve said before I don’t know 100% if the Rapture is pre, mid or post, and honestly don’t worry about it. It is in His Hands and He, as our Father, will see us through whatever is going to happen. He won’t leave His own.
      A true born again believer should be looking forward to the future, without fear or anxiety, because it’s just a few steps closer to being with God forever. He said in His Word, that He will be with us until the end; never leave us or forsake us.
      You’re right, none of us are more holy than the Apostles; we just live in a different era than they did. God has plans for us too, and hopefully, we are going about His work. But, one thing for certain, if a person is truly born from above, he will make it through the tribulation without the “mark.” The Bible can assure us of that.
      Salvation is the key to everything now and in the future.
      Bless You All

      • Not all know that , Tracy. Most pretribbers will argue the great tribulation is God’s wrath. It like this, Tracy, Because of the times we live in soon we will suffer if we live. We can not escape it. But we have a choice to make the suffering for God, be very rewarding or we can try to save ourselves and lose everything for that suffering. Either we suffer tribulation or we suffer God’s wrath. God’s wrath is not on the righteous. I ‘m glad you understand that. Their is nothing wrong in hoping for something, but if you teach people to hope for false hope, then there is something terribly wrong with that. satan does this kind of deceiving. I’m not looking for an argument, but rather to prevent others from struggling when the time to suffer comes. I believe you are strong enough to endure, but others are not.

        • Thank God he is my strength and the Joy of my Salvation. When I am weak, he is strong. He will help me to endure, by the Power of His Holy Spirit. I had a choice, I chose Jesus, not he is my good Shepherd, and he will not let me stray in the end, as my faith is in him and him alone. NOT in what I can do! 🙂

          • whoops, now, not,,, not,,,te he astray not stray…mind fog tonight!!!

  • Wow is right. Regardless of their past, let us look to their now and what they show currently. They talk a talk yet by their fruits do nothing but contradict the words of the Creator himself. By their current fruits they are known. They will eat everything, they are greedy and love money and they celebrate demon day… Yup sounds like the modern christian to me! No thank you. Man cannot live by bread alone but by EVERY SINGLE LAST WORD of YHWH!

    The truth about Larium

    Posted on December 4, 2013 by Bulldog

    LariamWhat if they use this information to disqualify all returning vets from owning a weapon? They could DQ a vet without even seeing them. They could do a blanket DQ for all vets that took this drug, which is everyone who deployed to Iraq/Afaghanistan.

    I took this drug in both desert storm and in Iraq 2003-2004. In my second trip to Iraq we took it every Monday. We called it Manic Monday for obvious reasons.

    They knew the effects, but the drug companies are more valuable to the government than the troops are.

    Have any of you who’ve deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan or Africa taken these? Melfoquine (previously called Lariam) has been linked with behavior changes and is now linked to military member suicide. It was originally given to help prevent malaria.

    Mefloquine: The Military’s Suicide Pill

    In late July 2013, the FDA issued a powerful “black box” safety warning for a drug, which has been taken by hundreds of thousands of troops to prevent malaria. The drug is called mefloquine, and it was previously sold in the U.S. by F. Hoffman-La Roche under the trade name Lariam. Since being developed by the U.S. military over four decades ago, mefloquine has been widely used by troops on deployments in Africa, Iraq and Afghanistan.

    We now recognize, decades too late, that mefloquine is neurotoxic and can cause lasting injury to the brainstem and emotional centers in the limbic system. As a result of its toxic effects, the drug is quickly becoming the “Agent Orange” of this generation, linked to a growing list of lasting neurological and psychiatric problems including suicide.

    The public had its first glimpse of the mefloquine suicide problem over a decade ago in 2002, when a cluster of murder-suicides occurred among Ft. Bragg soldiers returning home from deployment. All three soldiers had been taking mefloquine, yet an official Army investigation later concluded mefloquine was “unlikely to be the cause of this clustering.” The Army Surgeon General even testified to Congress there was “absolutely no statistical correlation between Lariam use and those murder suicides.” The next year, in 2003, a spike in suicides in the early months of the Iraq war was linked in media reports to widespread use of mefloquine; in response, the U.S. Army promised a study “to dispel Lariam suicide myths.” Yet when mefloquine use was halted in Iraq in 2004, the active duty Army suicide rate fell precipitously.

    Earlier this year, I analyzed data from an investigation of suicides in the Irish military conducted by the Irish network RTÉ. In my analysis, troops prescribed mefloquine had a 3 to 5 fold increase in their risk of suicide in the years following deployment, as compared to similar troops deployed but not prescribed mefloquine. The conclusions from this analysis seemed clear: mefloquine was a strong risk factor for suicide.

    Drug regulators seemed to agree: soon after broadcast, Roche updated the Irish Lariam product information, warning the drug could cause suicide, suicidal thoughts and self-endangering behavior. Most importantly, Roche eliminated previous language that claimed, “No relationship to drug administration has been confirmed.”

    Yet these observations only confirm what should have been apparent all along. Mental illness, including depression, anxiety, and psychosis, are known to be strong risk factors for suicide. And since 1989, when mefloquine was first marketed in the U.S., the product label has clearly warned that the drug could cause symptoms of mental illness, including anxiety and depression, and hallucinations and other psychotic manifestations. Since mefloquine increases the risk of mental illness, and mental illness increases the risk of suicide, it follows logically that mefloquine increases the risk of suicide.

    We now recognize that mefloquine can even occasionally cause a true dissociative psychosis. In a grip of such a terrifying psychosis, victims have jumped from buildings, or shot or stabbed themselves in grisly ways reminiscent of scenes from M. Night Shyamalan’s film The Happening. Those who have survived mefloquine’s psychotic effects describe experiencing morbid fascination with death, eerie dreamlike out-of-body states, and often uncontrollable compulsions and impulsivity towards acts of violence and self-harm.

    As frightening as its intoxicating effects can be, mefloquine’s dangers may not go away even when the drug is discontinued. Today’s mefloquine product information warns of “serious, long-lasting mental illness” and psychiatric symptoms that can “continue for months or years after mefloquine has been stopped.” Unfortunately, until recently, prominent authorities denied this was even possible. Clear the drug from your system, they insisted, and behavior would return to normal.

    As a result, troops home from a mefloquine deployment, suffering from persistent dizziness or memory problems, insomnia, vivid nightmares, irritability and other changes in mood and personality caused by the drug have struggled to make sense of their lasting symptoms. Some of these veterans have even been diagnosed with PTSD or TBI.

    But some veterans, including those without traumatic exposures or who had never suffered a concussion, in which these lasting symptoms couldn’t be easily explained, were accused of malingering or of having a “personality disorder”. In some cases, these troops were discharged without medical benefits and left to fend for themselves. It should not be surprising to learn that some of these mefloquine veterans, mentally injured, confused, and cast out by the military that unwittingly poisoned them, would later take their own lives in desperation.

    In 2004, the military was strongly encouraged to conduct careful studies to evaluate the role of mefloquine in suicide, but these studies were never done. In light of the FDA’s black box warning, fulfilling this long overdue recommendation should now be a priority.

    Yet conducting such studies shouldn’t be necessary for today’s military leadership to acknowledge what follows logically from today’s science: Mefloquine, a neurotoxic drug that can cause permanent brain injury, is contributing to our unprecedented epidemic of mental illness and suicide. We must do more to reach out to veterans suffering in silence from the drug’s toxic effects, and ensure that those at risk of suicide understand how the drug has affected their mental health. As importantly, mefloquine veterans need to have affirmed by the military what they have suspected all along: that they are not crazy, and that it really is the drug that is the cause of their symptoms.

    We owe it this generation of veterans to recognize the neurological and psychiatric effects of mefloquine neurotoxicity alongside PTSD and TBI for what they are: the third signature injury of modern war.

  • I have a LOT of things in my past I am not proud of. The Lord has redeemed me and called me to the ministry, placing me in the body as an evangelist. I admit I am saddened and appalled to see the administrators of this site supporting Duck Dynasty and calling the people saved, Christian, brothers, and so forth. The “Home” tab says NTEB holds to the Baptist doctrines in most areas. Does this not include salvation? The Duck Dynasty guys are elders at White Ferry’s Church of Christ. What does this entail? They believe salvation is essential in believing the gospel AND being baptized! Faith + Works!!! I admit their testimony sounds great on the surface; but, when you start to dig deeper you find a much more sinister, darker issue at work than their past. That issue is a corrupting of the gospel, and many Christians, including Baptists, have supported these men and allowed them to come and stand in their pulpits to present these false precepts through subterfuge. As these leaders show support the masses do not see any issue with joining themselves unto those of like faith as them, or listening to their false gospel through other false ministers in their false churches. Shame on you, and on the leadership of the Lord’s churches for showing support for these heretics. Their testimony sounds as good as any Mormon’s I have ever witnessed unto. It sounds as moving as many Catholic’s. But, if the understanding of the Saviour, or the design of the gospel is altered, then redemption is not achieved according to the scriptures. Again, I am sad to see this support. Please, repent, and withdraw any support of this group as “Christian” in light of the fact that they hold to works and faith for their false gospel of salvation.

    Chad Bush aka Baptist Evangelist

    • @Chad Thanks for the warning!! As long as they believe the Gospel, let the Holy Spirit deal with the rest. I would not judge another man’s relationship with the Lord. But of coarse you as a Baptist, would know it all,,,right? At least some Baptist I know think they are the only ones that are saved!!! God looks at the heart of a man, and if that man has believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, and been washed in the blood of the lamb, he is saved! We or they may not be perfect in every way, but the Holy Spirit has his job of straightening him out!! 🙂 Just saying!

  • Suez, it seems I am getting a double-minded message from you. The Lord teaches us not to be double-minded in the word. You say you would not judge another man’s relationship with the Lord, and then turn around and judge mine. Anyone who knows me on a personal level would be able to tell you I am one of the first to admit I do not know it all, and I am willing to call anyone out on the carpet if they err, including and especially Baptists. Being a Baptists is not what makes one saved. If you choose to believe that is what Baptists think, as I once did, you have the freedom to do so. Those men do NOT believe in the gospel as the Lord has commanded necessary to salvation. A man can believe in Jesus and be lost. There are examples in the scriptures of this very thing. The rich, young ruler believed in Jesus, but he walked away from free salvation. Judas knew Jesus was a righteous man and repented for betraying the innocent One, but we are told he went to his own place. I am not going to be involved in the kumbaya mentality where everyone can get together and hold hands and overlook everything when the Lord says there are men placed in the body to help perfect the body. Besides, these men have NOT believed the gospel because they add the works of man to them. Whether people agree or not, the truth remains the truth. God cannot lie and man cannot alter the Lord’s commands. His words have gone forth, and they shall return unto Him fruitful, doing that which He willed. If you do not like that, then ask God to grant you wisdom to see the truth. They are lost men who need to be shown the errors of the false salvation their religion has sold to them in the place of Christ’s righteousness and redemption.
