I have a question. Why does Johnny Robertson have only members of his family in charge of three Churches of Christ?

Johnny runs the Martinsville Church of Christ.

His son Micah runs the Danville Church of Christ.

His second-cousin James Oldfield runs the Eden Church of Christ.

His daughter Chay is hired as Johnny's full-time secretary.

His son Caleb is now going on Johnny's TV shows. Is Caleb being paid out of the Church of Christ wallet?

Johnny, James, and Micah don't have any other employment. They describe themselves as evangelists from the Church of Christ. It just seems very fishy that one family has control of so many congregations. One family controlling all those churches, all that money, all those people.

Is that a cult or what?

It's like politicians today. Those who know they will do their bidding will pay anyone who will do it:-)

Johnny and family is ample proof that donations flow to those who have intents and messages that are not good for the rest of us:-)

'By their fruits ye shall know them.'

Is Johnny a disciple of Jesus and teach what Jesus taught - or is Johnny a wolf in sheep's clothing?:-)

I like to think of it as a family run business. As any corporation does we expand. Of course our expansion is in not in any way in the denominational sense of the word expansion. We keep it completely in the family therefore avoiding the entrapment of any type of leadership, other than my own. What I say, GOES!!!!! Whitman.

This is what the Church of Christ accuse the Catholics of - being an organized church with the Pope as the head of the church. Now the shoe is on the other foot & Johnny Robertson is the head of three churches. But notice Heath is silent on this issue? So this begs the question, Is Johnny even qualified to run ONE church? Consider what does the bible say...
**He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect.(If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God's church?),1Timothy 3:4-5
So is Johnny qualified to take care of God's church in light of God's Word when you consider Johnny's son Micah arrested for trespassing & Johnny's daughter Chay out of wedlock preganancy? If Johnny isn't qualified to run ONE church why in the world is he running THREE churches? Notice how the CofC can see error in denominations, but give a free pass to scandal among their own?
**For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1Peter 4:17

I think I understand now, If denominations do it it's wrong- if Johnny does it it's ok...

Yes it is a cult!!!! And many people in Martinsville and Collinsville have asked the same thing. Why does Johnny Robertson's family run it all? How much money are they all getting? Are they the holy family of the Church Of Christ?

Considering this has been going on for 10 years I would say it totally exposes John's fear of allowing elders to guide the fellowship.

10 years to train elders and we are still waiting...

Johnny runs three churches with his own family members. They are all paid full-time.

But not one of those three churches have elders. And Johnny's family has been running those three churches for over ten years. Ten years and not one qualified elder.

Johnny and his family fail to meet the Bible qualifications of a pastor, elder, deacon, overseer, or everything else that Paul described. Johnny's daughter became pregnant out of wedlock and his oldest son has a criminal record for trespassing. Doesn't sound like Johnny Robertson has managed his children very well.

But despite all of this he thinks he can sit in judgment of other Christians and declare they aren't true Christians at all.

Johnny Robertson and his family don't have planks in their eyes. They have a whole entire lumber yard.

If you people don't quit talking negatively about me, I am going to quit coming on here and addressing your questions. That goes for you also, Whitman!!!!!!

The real question is this: If these family members are qualified to be the "evangelists" at other churches, how come they were not just made elders in the Martinsville Church. How can you be building other churches when your own church is not following the Biblical model of elders?

Also, why are these churches mainly built around their star-news-television shows? They seem to feed off of "infamy." They like the small amount of attention they get around here and rather than changing their methods that are obviously not producing fruit/converts, they continue to waste hundreds of thousands of dollars on their television shows. It seems that they feed off of the negative attention, so it doesn't really matter that the shows are not really changing anyone's opinions.

Odd, isn't it, the certain type of people who feed off negatives for attention? Hopefully those here who have tried to bring some sense to the JR issue will have a front row seat when God gets around to asking Johnny some REAL questions about why he said or did this or that:-)

About 15 years ago we had a friend who's son with his wife and children left for Washington state with a small church group to start a mission field. They split off of an independent baptist church here in north texas.

Got an email today saying that one of the leaders in that group has been arrested for rape within the group which has about 40 members down from a high of 75, the parents are worried about their children and grandchildren who they have not heard from in 15 years.

Here is the website for that church/cult.

I had an ongoing email conversation with their leader for a few months but he finally cut me off when he found out I knew one of his members...
