“Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.” 2 Corinthians 8:21
It’s taken Johnny Robertson and company several months to do, but Jason Hairston’s old blog has finally been taken offline. You can still see the link on the blogs of Johnny Robertson, Norm Fields and James Oldfield, but it now goes to a “website currently unavailable” page.
Are they finally acknowledging that Jason has stopped teaching their doctrine? They’ve tap danced around his leaving for such a long time, and we’ve talked about it here on this blog several times, and we’re still waiting for an explanation of what happened. I figure we’ll never get that. I still contend that Johnny owes the community an explanation for Jason’s leaving considering that he spent hours and hours preaching to us each week, but I can understand if Johnny wants to hush it up and pin it on Jason as some sort of failure on his part. After all, Johnny has an image to keep up with supporters like Shawn Paden!
Speaking of Shawn, if you go over and look at the website for Royse City Church of Christ you’ll see that Shawn still a very prominent link up to an article that Jason wrote about Baptists and the Church of Christ. But, according to sources close to Jason, he doesn’t believe what he taught when he wrote that article. And yet, Shawn keeps it up. Interesting! Not quite honest, but interesting nonetheless.
So, readers of this blog, because we don’t know what’s happened to Jason (thanks for nothing, Johnny), let’s all agree to be praying for him, that he would find true freedom in Christ, and that he wouldn’t forsake his First Love. (Rev 2:4)
And Jason, if you ever read this blog, know that we really are praying for you, friend!
