One caller last night asked a really interesting question that seemed to get Norm a bit worked up. She was asking about Jason Hairston, the apparently former Church of Christ apologist who had another Church of Christ program along with Norm, Johnny Robertson and James Oldfield. He vanished off the air (in the middle of a conversation I was having with him over on www.bibleqna.com) and none of the CofC dudes mentioned it.
She said that she thought that he had left the CofC completely, and Norm stumbled around the question, obviously trying not to give out too much information, reminding me a bit of Bill Clinton, not really giving a straight answer.
It really intrigued me, and made me wonder about Jason. And I have a message for him:
Jason, if you have left the CofC for doctrinal reasons, it would be really interesting to the community if you would make some sort of a statement about that, perhaps over at www.hammeroftruth.org. Obviously, if you had personal reasons for leaving, then it’s nobody’s business. But, if it was doctrinal, then I think you owe it to the community to let folks know, for all of the hours you spent on-air defending the doctrines of the Church of Christ – and trying to take down other Christians in this community. That’s just my opinion, though, and I don’t know the real story behind the thing. So do with it what you will.
All very interesting…
Update: Jason, we’ve been increasing our daily hits on this blog, and so if you wanted to post your story here, that would be fine with me. Just drop me a comment or an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
