North Carolina pastor, Rodney Wills lost his job with Mt. Salem Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina after four years of service. Wills was voted out of his position after he attended a Rick Ross concert. Miles Langley, a deacon at the church, posted on regarding Pastor Wills’ firing, stating that he compromised his religious integrity by attending the hip-hop show.

“We cannot have our leader supporting people of this world who are tearing down the kingdom of God,” Langley said. “We know that many saints will have mixed opinions from our actions, but this is not how we do things here at Mt. Salem …We cannot have a pastor praising the world one minute then praising the Lord the next. Period.”

Wills’ position was voted on by the Mt. Salem deacon board this past weekend. He arrived Sunday morning to find that his parking space was gone and his name had been removed from his office door. The 14 deacons reportedly voted 11 to 3.

Wills apparently was reprimanded earlier this year for attending a Lil Wayne concert, as well. He was the youngest pastor in the history of Mt. Salem Baptist Church, installed at only 26 years old. He now has the shortest tenure of any pastor in the church’s history.

    Some people are holier than thou, and if all their shortcomings (sins) were revealed to the world, they would have to fire themselves numerous times!!!!

      It’s not about being holier than thou. Yes ppl sin but u also repent and then find a way to stop sinning or at least commuting that same sin. Once u decide to become a man of the cloth u decided to give up those things that separate u from the world. Rick Ross does not define Christianity. Neither does Lil Wayne. U can’t preach against the wiles of the devil and ungodly things n u delving into it as well. That’s like saying I’m a recovered crackhead but imma hang out in a crack house. Either ur recovered or ur still a crack head. He clearly isn’t fully delivered. He needs to fall before the throne in repentance. He’s not ready to pastor doesn’t mean he isn’t a believer. But he isn’t delivered…big difference.
