We have many visitors on this blog who are not from the WSGR viewing community, and who don’t know what we’re talking about when we reference hyperconservative church of Christ folks. Well, Chris Knight has written a good report of what hypercon Johnny Robertson said on a recent broadcast of his cable program. I invite all ACOC visitors to pop over there and take a look, and then you’ll see what the good folks in our community have to live with.
In case you were wondering what was on that DVD that Chris didn’t show on Sunday night, he has uploaded it to the internet and given us permission to embed it here for your viewing pleasure.
You can comment here, or directly to Chris over at his blog: The Knight Shift.
For those of you in the WGSR viewing area, Chris Knight is supposed to be on Sunday night at 8:00 for 25 minutes. Charles Roark has apparently offered Chris 25 minutes to give his position regarding Johnny Robertson and their recent encounter outside the WGSR studios. Knowing Chris from his blog, I would bet he’s got something interesting up his sleeve! Let’s all watch and support him.
After a few days of Johnny Robertson badgering Chris Knight on this blog regarding this post on Chris’s blog, Chris decided to take Johnny at his word and debate. He loaded up his video camera and drove down to the TV studio where “What Does the Bible Say?” is broadcast, and issued Johnny an impromptu challenge. You can read more about that incident here. Chris is going to post excerpts from that encounter on youtube.
I have to say, I am really surprised. I had pictured Johnny to be the living embodiment of 1 Peter 3:15, but it seems that he wasn’t ready to engage Chris – claiming that it was because his program already had an agenda from which he didn’t want to deviate.
This is exactly the thing we’ve discussed here before, that JR seems to have this interesting need for control, and if a situation presents itself out of his control, he’s apparently not interested. That’s one of the reasons I’ve been so surprised that he had actually been commenting on this blog, although every time he comes he tries to take control and lead the conversation where he wants it to go.
Well, I must say that Chris has impressed me mightily with his chutzpa, and we cheer him on for his not letting himself be bullied by JR. Bravo, Chris!
