Jesus clearly stated that he had the authority to forgive sins.

Mk 2:10
"That you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins [he said to the paralyzed man] I command you: Stand up! Pick up your mat and go home." The man stood and picked up his mat and went outside in the sight of all.(NAB)

Jesus gave the same authority to Peter.

Mt 16:19 Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.(NAB)

Jesus later gave the same authority to all the Apostles.

Mt 18:18 I assure, whatever you declare bound on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you declare loosed on earth shall be loosed in heaven.(NAB)

The Apostle John, an eyewitness, recorded more directly the words of Jesus giving the power to forgive sins to all the Apostles after the testimony of the Resurrection.

Jo 20:21-23 "Peace be with you," he (Jesus) said again. "As the Father has sent me, so I send you." Then he breathed on them and said: "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive men's sins, they are forgiven them; if you hold them bound, they are held bound."

Caleb if your daddy doesn't get money coming again he's going to fire you or Micah or Shay. It must be good to be in one family running 3 churches and getting paid for it without elders watching over you.

Are Churches of Christ cutting Johnny's pursestrings because he has no elders overseeing all that money? Will losing $36,000 a year make him obey the Bible?

It continues to amaze me that there are actually people out there giving Johnny Robertson and his gang all this money to harass other preachers and pay for TV shows and advertisements It also amazes me that there seems to be a "preacher school" somewhere that Micah went that would actually teach this I wonder what the name of the class would be called that teaches to harass other churches

JustChristian, why won't Johnny Robertson, Micah Robertson and James Oldfield obey the Bible and have elders over them and the Churches of Christ in Martinsville, Danville and Eden?

All that time and money spent and not one person qualified to be an elder? 15 years they spend in this area and their work hasn't found one person qualified to be elder?
