Anyone notice how Johnny Robertson has set himself up as the one "true leader" that everyone around here needs to listen to? Does only Johnny have the "truth"? Is going into-(in Johnny's words) "attack mode" the gospel of Christ? Anyone notice how the the other Churches of Christ here in this area don't follow Johnny? And certainly don't appear on his show? Maybe they choose to follow Jesus instead of Johnny. Proof of this is when the Collinsville Church of Christ fired Johnny Robertson as their preacher years ago. I believe that to follow Jesus you can't follow Johnny because of what Paul said>>
When one of you says, "I am a follower of Paul," and another says, "I follow Apollos," aren't you acting just like people of the world?
1 Corinthians 3:4,,NLT

If the Church of Christ in Collinsville Va. has cast Johnny of the church fellowship, should we not also do the same?

Johnny has been fired 4 times not just once. Johnny is known as a cult leader and fast losing ground. He is making plans to leave the area. You people on here should not worry over his sect because his branch is made up of small little splitter groups that very few even know.

What is the problem?
The short answer is Bible interpretation.
Then you have these people who think they are some kind modern day prophet (hint hint)

Yep, I've heard Johnny has been fired 5 times, but who is counting? Anyway Johnny has set himself up as the top man in his three family run churches so now he can't be fired again:) This shows the point that I'm wanting to make is that Johnny preaches about the lack of unity of all those denominations... yet at the same time the church of Christ is divided. The other Churches of Christ in this area won't fellowship with Johnny because they think he is a "sinister minister-church police-nut with a grudge". Notice how J.R. goes in "attack mode"-(his words)against denominations yet he can't see the Church of Christ splits & divisions.hhhmmm?

Out of all these men on this forum they are so weak in their faith for what they believe and teach and preach that they have to let a WOMAN stand up and answer for them.
I am glad that God see's this.
I do remember the Bible speaking of a woman who goes to town to preach the good news of Jesus & to lead people to Him>>>
John 4:
28.Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people,
29.“Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?”
30.They came out of the town and made their way toward him.

Guess if Johnny had been at the well he would have stopped the woman from "preaching", huh?

Johnny hasn't done any live shows in past 2 months or at least none I've seen. None he's done in this area. He keeps playing reruns of the shows he does in Rocky Mount NC. The churches in Martinsville are shrinking or are almost nonexistent. The one in Eden is also so small that James might be the only one in the room.

Johnny is probably sick in body and doesn't have the strength to keep up, or he's getting ready to move to eastern North Carolina. It looks like he's giving up in Martinsville and Danville area.

On a related matter it seems that James Oldfield misrepresented the family of the man who died that he kept talking about on Thursday. One of them said that they had done nothing that James claimed they did. I have to agree. If they tried to bar James from the funeral there would certainly be footage that Mark, James and Johnny would play continuously. That bunch doesn't go anywhere without a hidden video camera.

Johnny has done the opposite that he set out. instead of winning the lost he has turned people against the coc. The only ones on his side are people like him those with low self esteem and bully ways. johnny hurt the work he thought he was helping

It was never about helping people. It was always about feeding his ego.

I have certainly never seen a ministry of Christ from Johnny's "Church of Christ".

Johnny's Martinsville Church of Christ and the others he controls, which he does control, are proof that being a bully can be profitable. Paul was a tentmaker along with being an evangelist. What employment do Johnny, Mark and James have? Johnny must make great money if he offers $1000 on his show all the time. Mark has no job except to complain on his own show all the time about losing his previous job. I guess he bullies people because he has low self esteem and nothing to cling to but Johnny.

It looks like Mark Mcminnis is Johnny Robertson's kept man. As long as Mark bullies other people, Johnny will pay him enough money to get by on. Mark's career is professional bully.

It looks like Johnny, Mark and James are making money from being bullies and nothing else. One would think the Lord would not approve of that.

Johnny makes close to $50,000 per year as does James. Mark Mcminnis doesn’t make no where near that.

Since the 1990’s Johnny Robertson has sank almost 1.5 million into Star News. Thanks to Johnny, Charles now has a nice movie theater that airs many R-rated movies. Way to go Johnny! The whole time Johnny thought he was playing Charles, Johnny got played. What’s really funny is how Johnny talks smack about Charles behind his back even about his “lifestyle”.

Before Johnny came to town people would have never known how cultish that the coc can be. Instead of winning the lost, as another coc preacher said, Johnny Robertson runs away 9 people for every 1 person he converts to his cult. Johnny runs about as a mad man on a mission, stalking preachers, filming them, setting up stop signs in front of their Church, telling people “don’t come here.” He stood at Mercy Crossing Church entrance with a sign trying to stop people from entering. That really worked out for ya, didn’t it Johnny? I think that resulted in a restraining order on the coc preachers. Good job there, Johnny. You the man!

It's like a pyramid scheme. If Mark bullies enough people then Johnny and James will let him start making the big big $$$$.

Johnny and James make $50,000 a year each. Holding down no real jobs. Their Church of Christ is a better racket than the Westboro Baptists.

Yep, Johnny is the man alright.. Good ol J.R. has become the front man for the Church of Christ hyper conservative. That gives a bad name to all the moderate CofC churches that don't want to be associated with the cult/nut/ church Gestapo Johnny Robertson!

Surly your not going to take this text and say that shows women can preach in the worship service?

Charles Roark WGSR TV multiple convicted thief one of his numerous crimes stealing one hundred thousand dollars worth of video equipment.Roark announced Johnny Robertson’s had a controversial show coming that night on Channel 18 and he phoned Johnny.Breaking News on the screen. Robertson told Roark they were going to have a hard time showing the video because it was so graphic. He said when he played it in Martinsville show that night he was going to have pictures from the video and then he’ll have a blank out so that you can’t actually see what they saw but it will indicate to you what was able to be viewed. Johnny told Roark it’s an old looking video on purpose so that he wouldn’t be liable in the sense of letting people see something that’s questionable.A couple of clips of the girls were shown during this phone conversation and big blue circles had been placed on their private areas. Johnny told Charles Roark you don’t have to be involved on internet porn these days you can go to the church building sit on the front row and you get to see children according to Johnny Robertson you get to see everything you see in some of these kiddy porn shops.Johnny Robertson said his question is would this fall in the category of exploiting children when you’re showing an audience below them dancing above them the audience is below and you have these children exposing their undergarments one of them 11 times in a one-minute segment and went on to say without cover except for panties and giving a clear frontal crotch shot.When Charles Roark questioned Johnny what the girls were showing Johnny said yes panties. Johnny said eleven times in one minute you’ve got a full clear shot of this underage girls and she’s up on a stage and people are down below you can see them down below and they’re looking up they get to view. He went on saying if person’s heard that the little boys were going into girls’ bathrooms peaking through and seeing their panties they would have a fit. Johnny said you don’t have to go in the girls’ bathroom anymore not in a Christian church around here. Many other remarks were made about the girls and Roark said he guess the perverts will need to start going to church and laughs and Robertson said he thinks some of them are going to church and that’s what they’re going for Johnny Robertson broadcast the girls in Reidsville about a week after this phone call This is the show I saw I don’t know what was shown in Martinsville.Johnny made many of the same remarks he had made on the phone conversation and showed video of the girls dancing in ballerina outfits. He had placed big blue circles on their private areas as if the girls were showing themselves. There were a few callers on the show that night not many. One lady talked about her shorts, another lady talked about if you look and lust you were sinning,another lady talked about her mom always wore a dress and was lady like. While Johnny was playing the video of the girls dancing he said this was the kind of behavior going on in the church where eleven times in one minute these young ladies were on stage above the individuals where they were looking up.Johnny bent and looked up and said not straight like we were looking He said they were actually seeing eleven times instances of straight on undergarments. He said he just knew they were really close to actually breaking the obscenity laws in North Carolina. Johnny showed the Obscenity law and read it. Johnny said he was very thankful the community had weighed in tonight in such a positive fashion they didn’t want to be seeing young girls that age showing their under garments out in public,at the mall or in church or any of these places.(My question here would be how can he get a few phones calls less than you can count on your hands and then claim the community weighed in?)Johnny said he hoped and prayed there would be some individuals who would call or write The First Christian Church in Kernersville North Carolina

What's a kiddy porn shop? I've never seen one.

If Johnny knows what's inside a kiddy porn shop, he's not a preacher I want to associate with.

if all these accusations are true, how do i keep going?
Is this investigative reporting?
No names of my accusers
No documents to prove alligations
Lots of unfounded stories
Just for math purposes, try this
800 x 12, and then x 4
i began on ch 6 in 2000. my bill 800 a month, and it was that way till 04
sooo just for ease of addition, 10,000 per year for 4 years?????
then Charles got new station, and I had ONE hr per week for 4 years.
Do you really think that adds up to 1.5 million?
funny.
Now think about all the other stuff said.
I have been preaching for 30 years, mark has been preaching for 5.
I ask him what he needed and then went out and supplied it with God's help.
Now think about this. When is the last your preacher saw you lose your job, and came up and said I will replace your salary?
mark lost his job and I raised him a salary. How is it that persons can turn that into something ugly.
How are we on the down grade may I ask?
We will double our man power in the next two years.
Micah will be returning any day
Caleb in a year.
If I do begin working in Rocky Mount, how is that a loss?
We have new converts in greensboro, Alta vista an in KY too.
If we were able to send Caleb into KY how would that be a loss.
Paul left Corinth for Ephesus. How is that a loss.

I see nothing in what you've written about what Christ has done. All you have written is "this is what I have done."

You are not an evangelist for God. You are an evangelist for Johnny Robertson. If it is all about Johnny there is nothing left for God.

If anyone has any doubts about the accusations Johnny Robertson made toward the girls at the Kernersville Churh I suggest they call the First Christian Church in Kernersville NC and ask Mr. Snow if these accusations are true or not.
