I'm content to believe that the strange drama of what has gone on between Yours Truly and Johnny Robertson of "Martinsville Church of Christ" - part of what I call the "Church Of Christ In Name Only" - has finally drawn to a close. It came with this brazen admission by Robertson on the Answering the Church of Christ blog...
"we are here to defeat destroy you and uplift truth"Johnny Robertson, supposed preacher and "Church of Christ" television broadcaster, has said that it is the mission of he and his followers "to defeat (and) destroy you".
- Johnny Robertson, June 11, 2008
I don't have to say anything else or make another video, folks. Robertson has shot himself not in the foot but straight in the chest with this statement.
No doubt that the effort I went through in order to ask Robertson a simple question, about "How is what you are doing showing the love of Christ?", has been wasted. Or maybe not. Because this is how Johnny Robertson of the Martinsville Church of Christ shows love of Christ for others: by actively trying to "destroy" them.
Didn't Charles Manson preach the same thing to his "Family"?
And now, I must apologize to the readers of The Knight Shift, that I spent even one moment concerned with this loon. Because so far as I'm concerned, Johnny Robertson had already demonstrated his lack of credibility even before he said that it was his Christ-ordained mandate to "destroy" his enemies. It happened here, when he referenced someone who is apparently a member of a legitimate Church of Christ...
"Corey does not represent the church of Christ ya'll he is a liberal"Longtime readers of this blog will know what that means and just how bad Robertson has screwed-up here.
And now I cannot believe that I made such a business out of this guy. Because now I have to wonder if he is really an "evil" person after all.
Instead, Johnny Robertson is just... a blithering idiot!
And sad to say, I'm not sorry for having to observe that, either.
"He is a liberal"? Is that the best you can come up with?!
Folks, seriously, I am now regretting that I spent any time at all countering this, God forgive me for saying it, poor lost soul.
"Liberal"? That word, along with "conservative", has been used so bloody often that it's completely lost all meaning!
If you've ever read my blog, you already know that this is a long-standing belief of mine. A person can have "conservative" or "liberal" leanings on issues. But to blanketly damn a person as a "liberal" or a "conservative" is symptomatic of a very petty, shallow, spiteful mind.
And thats all Robertson really has, isn't it?
Oh yeah, he knows the words of the Bible. But he doesn't know the meaning and spirit of the Bible and now I have to wonder if he possibly can know that at all!
I'm sorry folks. You see, Johnny Robertson, he puts on a good show of it. But he's not really evil. He just can't see the world with anything other than the mentality of professional wrestling.
The moment he described someone as a "liberal", I knew: Johnny Robertson was not an important man at all. Certainly not worth having a theological battle with.
This is too good. This makes my day! This is, very much, a gift from God.
(And yes, I do admit that the lesser angels of my nature are rather mirthful at the moment. But I like to think that God has sufficient grace to forgive me for that :-P)
Oh well, at least I got to make good on my promise to the cast and crew to show Schrodinger's Bedroom on broadcast television. And word has reached me that at least one other well-known person is "furious" that I didn't provide the show that had been expected on Sunday night.
Johnny Robertson, you're not worth another moment of my time. With one word, you demonstrated that.
I would even say that it's a waste of time for anyone to be concerned about Robertson and James Oldfield and Norm Fields any more. It really is the spiritual equivalent of wrestling with a pig: you only get dirty and the pig likes it.
And that's all Robertson, Oldfield and Fields really are, aren't they? They are spiritual pigs.
Johnny Robertson, ladies and gentlemen: All hat and no cattle. On a mission from God to "defeat destroy you".
I'm wondering what kind of Photoshop fun I can work with this...
