Mr. Robertson’s Valid Point

Earlier, a comment came in from Johnny Robertson, a church of Christ television evangelist whose program is often, but not always, the subject of discussions on this blog. Among things, Mr. Robertson wrote:

“You rebuke Randy for “unethical” behavior and yet you say nothing about the statement made about me.”

and

“I try and demonstrate the lust for power and wealth that is clear in “unchecked” systems of religion. You on the other hand let people on here slander me and say all kinds of liable toward me.”

We don’t pretend to be unbiased with this blog, but we do want people – regardless of whether we agree or disagree with them – to feel like this is “safe” ground. That is the best way to allow discussions and conversations to be productive.

We, the administrators of this blog, request the following action be taken by all blog commenters:

• Be as factual as possible in what you write about each other.
• Avoid making personal comments or accusations about other commenters.

We remind everyone that the purpose of this blog is not to pull down any individual – but to be a place where civil discourse can occur centered around an exploration of the doctrine and methodology of “hyper-conservative” churches of Christ.

Mr. Robertson, we apologize for any offense you have received while visiting this blog. We will be more vigilant in the future for your sake and for the sake of all blog visitors. We hope that you will also resolve to do the same thing when posting.

After all, the point of any blog written by and for Christians (even those with whom we disagree – maybe especially those with whom we disagree?) is to glorify Christ.

The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:7-11

  1. Things that cannot be proven and are actually false
    1.
    I was not the doorknocker at the Robert Kellum home nor was I on the property. Mrs Kellum had no reason whatever to be upset (nor to threaten on TV to be waiting with a pistol) than any other person who has doors knocked.
    As for our use of cameras, it should be plan to see why we have them since our actions are constantly being told wrongly

    2. The filming of the Rolls Royse belonging to the in the Kellum’s…in the driveway & highway
    was it wrong to actually accomplish what they set out to do?
    the day following our film, they affirmed on Star 39 Good Morning Good Morning with Debra Buchanan, in their own words,… Dacell (Kellum’s daughter and driver)said ” we wanted the people from New York visiting for the wedding to see that Martinsville is doing well and can afford fine things”

    3. In regard to events in Bay AR. no one can prove that I did anything different than 1000s of Evangelistic people every where do daily. I in no way acted in a threatening way toward anyone. That Baptist church has solicited every church in the area to throw in their small efforts with them and become one large church.
    If I am a villain for soliciting a person to come and be our guest in our pulpit so as to better understand his defense of the thief on the cross then Chris is a villain for soliciting me to let him occupy our set at my time and expense for him to demonstrate my error.

    I could go on and on but let these suffice

    Thank you for the platform from which to clear up just a few of these errors
