“I wasn’t trying to disrespect no religion or anything like that. My whole family is Christian. I have a half Christian, half Muslim family, the situation, the song, that’s what energy it felt and if anybody feel disrespected, I ain’t do it in that way.”
– Meek Mill
While on 106 & Park Meek Mill apologized to anyone offended by his latest single, “Amen.” The pastor responds to his apology below.
This apology was the condition for lifting the Call-To-Action boycott. Therefore, I want to say as a follower of Christ, that I completely forgive Robert Williams for this song because Jesus has completely forgiven me. While I have made the choice not to listen to or support any artist that promotes blasphemy or misogyny in their music, I appreciate Mr. Williams being willing to acknowledge his wrong. It is my sincere hope, that he, along with all popular rappers with their fans, will embrace God’s total forgiveness by turning from the sin promoted through mainstream Hip Hop, and trust solely in Christ for salvation. Christ died for all the evil we have done and spoken. And it is only through repentance and faith that forgiveness can be found.
I want to say thanks to everyone who chose to cover this story, and a special thanks to all those who supported me. The fight is not over. All of us have a responsibility to the current generation to teach and educate them as to the errors found in popular music while pointing them to the truth and liberty that is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
