This Pastor Had To Resign And Is Being Punished For Standing Up And Doing The Right Thing.


Reader this is a doggone shame. This young man, a descendant of Gen. Robert E. Lee tried to be a real, actual Christian and had to resign his post as the Pastor because the white people in his church were uncomfortable with him lifting up BLM, the Women's March, and Heather Heyer.  He's 24. It was his FIRST call. And he'd only been there since June. (You can read it here)

My name is Robert Lee IV, I’m a descendant of Robert E. Lee, the Civil War general whose statue was at the center of violence in Charlottesville. We have made my ancestor an idol of white supremacy, racism, and hate. As a pastor, it is my moral duty to speak out against racism, America’s original sin. "Today, I call on all of us with privilege and power to answer God’s call to confront racism and white supremacy head-on. We can find inspiration in the Black Lives Matter movement, the women who marched in the Women’s March in January, and, especially, Heather Heyer, who died fighting for her beliefs in Charlottesville.”

    I pray that all pastors find the courage to speak truth to their congregations.

    1. This is why white silence is unacceptable.

      Ms. Ann I know Rob Lee. He was an intern at my church while studying at Duke. So thankful God is raising up bold leaders like him for such a time as this.

    3. The Internet Preacher:Tuesday, 05 September, 2017

      Ann this is interesting glad you posted it. Lee has an impressive record for a young pastor. But he failed the first test of pastorship, that is, recognizing that the institutional church is first and foremost a social institution, not spiritual. (Some churches bring spiritual into play eventually, but most never. There are exceptions, of course, but very few in my experience.) The rule is, don't mess with the social structure of the institution.

      Let's hope he finds a post worthy of his courage and devotion. And let Lee kick the dust of Winston-Salem off his heels to their own demise. They are not worthy of him.

  2. Sweet Jesus,have mercy. I wish he had not apologized. We need to stop apologizing for speaking the truth.

  3. He should have got clearance from his board of Trustees before he appeared on that show

    1. I don't think he needed a clearance for speaking truth. So many times we pastors feel pressure to be politically expedient rather than speaking the Gospel. We fear people leaving the church if we are too outspoken and possibly endangering the survivability of our smaller congregations. Yet we are called to do just what this young man did speaking the truth in love. Thank you.

    2. I am a pastor in a mostly white community and you hit the nail on the head. I wouldn’t let another moment go by after Charlottesville without denouncing this evil. My hope is that my fellow colleagues will do the same.

    3. COGIC Bishop. So tell me where did this man preach the Gospel, as you say? You may not affiliate with COGIC, anymore bit you sure talk like them, misinformed and unbiblical.

  4. And this is why pastors don't talk about white supremacy - because their white people can't handle it. So instead they stick with comfort - which is the opposit of helpful.

  5. I have been going to "white evangelical" churches my whole life and I've never heard a pastor tell the congregation who to vote for, I would leave a church that did that. However this president couldn't even denounce Nazis, he is ending DACA, and tried to ban Muslims from entering the country. These things go way beyond normal politics and has led me to seriously question if I want to be a part of a movement where 8/10 people voted for him. I think many well meaning pastors are making the same mistake Billy Graham made while preaching to segregated audiences.

  6. Just his tie here to MTV is a lot suspect to me. A preacher using a diabolical platform like MTV definitely raises my eyebrows as I think there is a dark back story behind this supposed act of enlightment. Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Occupy, Black Bloc. And BAMN, are instigators and are violent, operating in their fakeness under the banner of peace and justice. Many BLM protesters are getting paid by the Big Billionaires to stir in chaos, so these RICH Head like George Soros can the come in to SAVE the world as all will bow down to serve their agenda. Satan comes as an angel of light, but his intent is always to to kill and destroy.

    1. And secondly, there can not be no peace or justice without the LORD Jesus Christ. All other ground is bit SINKING SAND!

    2. Did you read the article? He said that MTV approached him because of his heritage. Not like he went looking for trouble.

    3. @ MTV anonymous,

      I too find this rather suspect!

      The WORD of God requires us to be vigilant and sober at ALL times! (1 Peter 5:8)

      PS - is he really a descendant of Lee? Remember the young man who tried to pass himself off as a black man? And the white woman who got herself recruited by the NAACP?

      Mmmmmh!

    4. I get that Ms. Ann. MTV though, the diabolical Christ hating network. I'm not sure this "preacher" is all innocent either.

      And by the way, let's not forget how David Howie had to shame MTV back in the 80's when in an interview he told MARK Goodman, he was floored by the fact there were few black artists on their network. And I'm supposed to believe MTV is so concerned about racism againt people of color. YEAH RIGHT!

      Delete
    5. Amen Shepherd! And let's not talk about the NAACP, Founded by non Jewish whites and W.E.B DUBOIS. The NAACP had all white presidents up until sometime in the 60's. So much of being COLORED! Marcus Garvey even left that organization claiming it was too white.

      Most of these organization are just fronts, proposing good outwardly, but really are inside jobs ran by the devil. The Bible said the love of money is the root of all evil, and there are lots of people getting paid to do evil,

  7. I wish pastors would stick to the bible and the gospel, instead of being lead by society. I'm sorry, but any Christian that supports the Black Lives Matter movement, is either very uniformed or very secular and worldly. They are a leftist liberal group, who supports homosexuality and transgenderism. They do not support 2 parent mother and father families. Many of them are racist. Go to their website and read their beliefs. Same with the women's march. A leftist "march" to praise and shout abortion. Anybody who gets inspiration from those organizations...sad.

    1. Talking about the women's march, it was one of the most obscene marches ever.

      "Abstain from all appearance of evil." (1 Thessalonians 5:22)

      For the young pastor to support the "Women's March", he must have missed a Bible Study Class at Duke.

      IJS.

    2. Anonymous so what's your point? I'm a Christian and I support Black Lives Matter. I don't see how anyone can be a "Christian" and support any evangelicals that support trump....they are all right wing hate group that hate every minority group in the country. See how that work.

    3. And Carmen, just because you are Black, and support a supposed "BLACK Organization", doesn't make you a Christian. I suggest you research BLACK Lives Matter, it's origin, whose funding them, their acts of "domestic terrorism, and the violence they've enacted against law enforcement before you come here and claim, "YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN". You can baste in your pride of pity against racism all you want. You are not going to be with the LORD when you die, if you don't "stick to the Bible and the Gospel" as the Anonymous "wish Pastors stick to the Bible and the Gospel" SAID!

    4. Once again what's your point, that's right you don't have one.

    5. GO BACK and READ. It's FUNDAMENTAL.

      1. YOU as well as many others ARE UNINFORMED!
      2. YOU as well as many others are WORLDLY!
      3. YOU as well as many others are NOT Christians!

      Plain enough for YOU now.

      Delete
    6. Carmen, Do you support the phrase Black Lives Matter or the movement Black Lives Matter??? Because they are not the same. Have you been to their website and read their beliefs??? Many of them are anti-christian. That is their stance. So you may be a Christian, but BLM is not. I stated facts, but you did not. Everyone who supports President Trump, are not racist and hate minorities. What about minorities, Blacks, Mexicans, Asians, etc, who voted for President Trump??? Are they racist and hateful too???

  8. The name of the church is Bethany United Church of Christ in Winston-Salem, NC. It is important to hear from the right Christians. This church is aligned with the Christian Right. Know the difference. White Evangelicals don't care about the world around them. Let's not forget that most lynchings occurred on Sundays after church. I pray God's blessing on this young pastor so standing up and speaking out. God has greater for him.

    1. You're being sensational with your lies. Most lynching DID NOT occur on Sundays after Church.

    2. Look it up. Lynchings were a Sunday evening sensation. People traveled for miles to participate. Many even kept body parts for souvenirs. I'm not being sensational, I'm being real.

    3. No Most Did not! You are being sensational, even saying white evangical don't care about the world around them. That's a big dat lie. I guess you being so black supporting BLM really shows you care about the WORLD around you. CUT oit all the DRAMA and GIMME A BREAK!

    4. @Anonymous - You might want to look this up. There is documented evidence of Sunday Lynchings.

    5. Look don't waste my time talking about researching a lie. No need to mention that which "supposedly" took place. It's a known fact there is black on black crime happening everyday. Black Lives Matters will never protest against these, because the rich Jewish billionaires are not going to pad these idiot money hungry protesters pockets with CASH. They don't care about Black Lives, neither do BLACK LIVES MATTER! THEY only care to sow RACIAL discord to further break down humanity within this country, not only in this country, but the world.

      I take no advice from you to research lynching done after church. I do advise you however to take your head out the sand, and know what's really going on. There has always been wickedness in HIGH PLACES. The devil has always come as an angel of light, posing as good, but undermining evil all throughout. WAKE UP o ye that slumber.

    6. This ain't black on black crime. This is history, American History. America needs to face it's sin and quit running from it.

      Delete
    7. Do all you want to do to ignore Black on Black crime. Bottom line the story line here has nothing to do with HISTORY. The story here has to do with a young white male perpetrating as a Christian, being paid to go on a diabolical network MTV (a racist metwork) to deceive and lie to many, the violent, ungodly, satan funded organization BLACK Lives Matter is for peace and justice. If you want to talk history however, depending on the history book you read, many say this dude's ancestor ROBERT E LEE, was opposed to slavery. He wrote slavery was a moral and political EVIL in any country. He even helped his wife set up a school for slaves, and freed all his slaves in 1863. P

  9. Is this dude SERIOUS? Y'all that BELIEVE this FLATTERY for these Antichrist groups are sadly deceived. I WOULD NOT put any trust, at all, in what this Young Man is Ignorantly talking about. He is Proud and knows NOTHING....BIBLE! As always, so glad I have Discernment by the Holy Spirit. Why don't you just TRUST Jesus and stop believing this Foolishness. President Trump IS NOT the answer, JESUS IS! Ignorance and deception comes from not Understanding God's Word. I "could" say a whole lot more, BUT, nuff said!! In Christ Alone, RLR.

  10. One of the characteristics of who satan is, is Ulterior Motive (plural ulterior motives) definition “An alternative or extrinsic reason for doing something, especially when concealed or when differing from the stated or apparent reason.” LOL. I love ya’ll, but it cracks me up how some of you do not see this for what it really is. One more time, I know Trump is crazy off the chain, terrible communicator, etc.

    Now. I understand that this minister getting before the crowd and the world to confess and denounce the sins of racism throughout the history of this country. On the surface and on the outside looking in, this makes one feel nice and warm inside. And at first I was like wow a Robert E Lee descendant standing for the world to make such a statement. Then I was like SCREEEECH! Hold up! He’s getting on one of if not the most demonic network on earth that literally mocks the very name of Jesus Christ himself and Min Lee is making a statement of what this country’s original sin is. Hmmmm. Ok.

    Slavery is top-notch sin, no doubt, however with MTV approaching him to do this, he needed to say the following, “okay, I’ll do it but under these circumstances. Not only will I talk about the evils of racism, but I have to let it be known who my savior is. I have to be allowed to say that whosoever calls on the name of Jesus will be saved because the backbone of why racism & other sins exist is because for example the KKK actually believes they are doing the Lord’s work. They believe they have the Lord, but they don’t.”

    Now I ask you all, was any of this stated during the Minister’s speech? No. Now he talked about the Women’s March. Hmmmmm. A march that on the surface is about Women’s rights. Well there’s an etc to this. Lesbianism, Abortion.. do what I want to attitude and with an in your face approach! Was the march against Donald Trump, yes, basically, but if one backs a movement, they have to back the WHOLE enchilada.

    That also goes for BLM. I movement who I have constantly emailed but I get no response back. Why? Because I tell them I MIGHT have their 100% support to not only support the evils of racism and against police brutality, but BLACK ON BLACK MURDER also must be address. Huh, if black lives really matter.

    Get it? Look, I can’t even back them anyway because they make it known that they are a contributor of the LGBTQ movement. Smh. So are we at a crossroads folks? No, we’re not because if we believe God 100%, none of this is a head-scratcher. Yes, there’s racism withing the white church, no doubt, I’ve experience it. You’re good only for talent. Trust me I know as a keyboardist and even then you’ll be limited within a predominately white church.

    Look, I get what Min Lee was trying to do but there’s always an ulterior motive when the media is involved. That’s why it’s stated in Ephesians 2:2 - Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Yes, satan is the controller of the airwaves and media, period.

  11. Time zone, that's why I really like reading your comments. You hit the nail right on the head. He talked about America's greatest sin (his opinion by the way, not biblical) and as a minister, gave not an ounce to mention the remedy for this sin. Shows what kind of "minister" he really is. If MTV was really concerned about the problem of racism, why not have former KKK members testify on their platform, how the LORD transformed them to love people of different races and color? They would never have that, because that racist network hates Christ and mock Him often in several of its programs.

    Your speech here timezone is one of the best and discerning comments I've read on a subject matter EVER ON THIS BLOG.

    Well done my BROTHER. GREAT JOB!

    1. Thanks Get Outta Here. I try my best to prayerfully make my comments as close to God-Fearing as possible and not out of emotion which is what the majority of individuals do on not only this blog but the millions of blogs across the Internet. The thing is is with this minister, the intent might've been in his eyes righteous, but it was far from that when it comes to the connections of MTV. Remember in 2009 hint hint, lol, when on the MTV demonic awards show, comedian Jack Black told everyone to hold hands and jokingly asked everyone to pray to satan? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwBDXBzYyc8 smh. Yea, that's the network smh. To be associated with something like that is no different from Tasha hooking up with Minaj, Kirk gettin' with Kanye.. the list is becoming endless. Again, darkness and hopefully light does not mix. As the scriptures say, we must be equally yoked to deal with the foolishness in this world and be 100% led by the Holy Spirit. hmmmmmmmm. Was it the Holy Spirit that led Min Lee to be on MTV and make his lack luster comments? Just saying....But thanks again.

    2. This is somewhat of a clearer picture Get Outta Here as I'm eluding to the Jack Black joker. Satan loves symbols and symbolism to keep the masses of the people lost and confused and to think things aren't what they seem but as a mere joke. #1 is the children and the next generation. That's who he wants to conquer & destroy. So all this chaos about race is just a sidenote to him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fY6vlhR6XNo

  12. What's REALLY top notch IS DISOBEDIENCE and a HARD HEART toward God's Word. Here is what REALLY will ROCK YOUR WORLD! This fight about Racism/Slavery,etc,type issues IS so much instigated by the devil that those who THINK they SEE are REALLY still Blind. Do y'all not realize that The CHILDREN of Israel WERE slaves. Africans have slaves...RIGHT NOW. India have slaves....RIGHT NOW! China has slaves... RIGHT NOW. Vietnam has slaves...RIGHT NOW. Germans had slaves...Ask my wife. The only way you are going to see the REAL TRUTH is to ask the Holy Spirit to OPEN YOUR EYE'S. As for me and my house we will OBEY the Lord. People need to pray for Discernment...God's heart is grieved by this mess. In Christ Alone, RLR.

    1. That is so true Anonymous. We're here in the U.S. and our minds have become compartmentalized into thinking that it is soooooooooo hard here and we just ain't gone make it cause of the white man. YES, there's racism and getting ahead in this country as a black man myself can be challenging but at the same type others in the countries you have mentioned are being tortured, heads cut-off, families PHYSICALLY taken from their house from each other and nothing is being said in this country. Yes, I know Trump is a trip (cause I know someone is saying that in their mind now, lol) However, ALL is not lost. The executive orders that are being implemented by Trump will be reversed by whoever gets in office and then that individual will be a devil as well! It's all a cycle and a repeat of satan's goal to keep the masses lost and confused until Christ return.

  13. Yes sir. I don't mean to disrespect ANYONE, BUT, one thing I know is that the devil is the author of confusion. And he will do ANYTHING to get God's people caught up in these issues that CAUSE division. As we should know, God has established ORDER, and it is GOVERNED by His commands, no matter what Ignorant people try to come up with. Listen, in reference to this racism stuff (which does happen both ways...IJS) God DIRECTED me to marry this German girl (don't care what anyone thinks about it) because my preacher Dad raised me to know God's Word. Yep, I had a highschool sweet heart back home in Georgia, BUT, God directed differently...to my surprise.. LOL! Therefore, their is NEIGHTER race above the other....BIBLE! So, may I say as a brother in the Lord, get over these Devilish accusations and realize the devil is the author of confusion, division, etc. Bless you. In Christ Alone, RLR.
