Pastor Rodney regrets comments

Rodney (right) said his comments were not wise at the time

Pastor of the Trinity Baptist Church (TBC), Randy Rodney, has said he regrets comments made recently about Evangelist Peter R. Augustine on his radio show.

He described his comments as an “emotional response” when he blasted Augustine for describing Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, as the best Prime Minister of Dominica so far at a recent ceremony.

He stated on his radio show last week that his comments were not wise at that time.

“I admit that my intimate knowledge of prior comments and insidious actions presented by the subject, as well as my total frustration over the absence of anyone able to restrain these mis-statements and actions prompted my emotional response, which was not wise at the time,” he stated. “I have already committed the same to my church family, my regrets at the place of the emotional comments.”

He stated that he is accountable to his church family “and they better than anyone of you, in the listening audience or anyone else, they have a better appreciation of the surrounding circumstances, they being the prime affected.”

At the handing over ceremony of 300 petrocasas by the President of Venezuela Nicholas Maduro at the Douglas Charles Airport, Augustine had high praise for the Prime Minister for what he said was Skerrit’s handling of recovery efforts after the ravages of Tropical Storm Erika.

“I believe I said it once, and the press took me to task. And I repeat it here that I believe that God knew and God knows exactly why he allowed us to have this Prime Minister for such a time as this. And I still believe that he is the best that we have had in this country so far,” he said.

But that did not go down well with Rodney who said the statement did not come from someone with a seasoned, mature or spiritual and theological mind, but from a “sycophant.”

“That’s a dumb statement, that’s a very dumb statement, in fact that’s an extremely dumb statement for anybody in their right minds…” Rodney had said.

    This statement d pastor made was downright disrespect for the office of pastor, haughtiness,and arrogance, Peter did nothing to deserve that type of treatment, if D pastor wasn’t in agreement he should have used wisdom as to how to handle this issue not on national radio. Peter was one of the evangelists in d early years who brought the gospel of Christ to many people in DA, to date D pastor have these people in his church. And I pray Peter that you continue to serve the Lord in humility, Dominica loves you. D pastor needs to make a public apology to Peter. Serve the Lord with humility my bro. Leave politics and go clean your backyard, start with d church backyard. enough said.

    Both of you should return to the cross, the church should stand outside and guide the state, pray for in my view both your actions are not of ordained men of God.

    IT is hard being at the top; Mr. Augustine! Under the circumstances ,I believe the Government of the day is trying their best. To mention one particular minister is Crawling. Mr. Rodney! I believe the election is over and you should stick to your preaching. Full stop. you both were not technical and hand over a hammer to the lower level. All these comments are for call for

    I believe both Rodney and Augustin should stay away from public political issues but rather pray for the ministers and the country as God has instructed the leaders to do. Our country needs prayers and support at this time . Not division .

    I was always of the view that the comment of pastor Rod was not appropriate. Peter is a human being with his own opinion. We need to control out emotions pastor. Leaders needs to know when and how to do this.

    Pastor Rodney,
    I am happy you are able to admit your mistake. However always remember a man of God must use wisdom in all situations.
    Ask God to pour out more wisdom upon you pastor. This is your colleague and he too is entitled to his opinion.
    As a Christian there is nothing wrong with Mr Augustine’s comment. This is indeed the best Prime Minister that Dominica has had. We have seen the man done what no other has done. He deserves his recognition and I am so proud of him.
    Let’s continue to pray for him as well as the other government minister’s and those holding the fort to pull our country forward.

    I think he should drink the loubiere water he ask Augustine to drink. This is what you really wolf in sheep clothing.

    Since I know both of you very well and both as men of GOD,it’s only fitting to use the very word of GOD as my simple advice. To Pastor Rodney: Proverbs chapter 21: 23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles. ( The word says troubles and not just trouble )
    Then that’s my two cents in the matter to both of you. GOD did not call you both to have a fight over Caesar’s doctrine ( politics ), for Caesar’s doctrine can get no one into the Kingdom of JEHOVAH ( GOD ).
    Your political views may differ,that’s fine but just a little bit of respect will get the job done. For Caesar’s doctrine respect that’s ok but for the word of GOD it’s a no, no since HE ( GOD ) is a respecter of no person.
    May you both seek the LORD in that matter, tell HIM all about it HE’s a friend that’s well known.
    GOD bless you both.

    Pastor Randy you did what’s right thing. God have forgiven you . We all make mistakes, but that is not all. The church is the church. We need to separate church from politics. Promote praying for those in authority instead of blasting them. Let Christ be in the center of anything reasoning at all times

    Rodney is a smart religious businessman. The man know two thirds of his church family love themselves some Skerrit & he offended them,to not apologize is to lose money in his basket. So for all who want to chat think that man worry what all you have to say.

    “I admit that my intimate knowledge——- as well as my total frustration over the absence of anyone able to restrain these mis-statements and actions prompted my emotional response, which was not wise at the time,” he stated<<<<<<<<<News Article

    Pastor Rodney Sir, you are right to say that this comment of yours, against Peter Augustine, " WAS NOT A WISE ONE –especially not to the public audience, but the question is: How often are you going to come out with such outburst and to turn around and say that "it was not wise"?

    You should know it sir, that Holy Spirit gives us 8 attributes to demonstrate God's Love in us–two of them are PATIENCE and SELF CONTROL. I you had as those attributes, a Church Pastor, you would use them to rebuke the FRUSTRATION and AROUSED EMOTION in you–today you would not have to come back to the public audience to say that your outburst was "not wise"–but did you apologies to Peter Augustine?

      Elizabeth,all of you are just too hypocrite, right now he is simply buckling to pressure. What’s the difference between him and Peter right now? It seems to me he now fears he falls out of favor with someone who may have directed him to belittle himself, and apologize to the puppet who is really at fault!

      You Elizabeth playing preacher is also nothing more than a fraud, all of you are playing with God, but God is not mocked you all are worshiping man rather than God. Right now Rodney has reduced himself to the level of a wimp.

      Jesus Christ is not a Wimp, if he was he would not beat the money changers out of his Father’s house as the Bible teaches. He did nothing wrong in the first place, so why the three hundred sixty degree turn at this point?

      • October 7, 2015

        Of course! To you he did nothing wrong–but to only you; that is the reason I know that you are not human, and we human beings, are discovering that about you quicker and quicker.

        At least Pastor Rodney has some conscience–if not complete–and however it happened, it was his conscience which played against him–to acknowledge that he flawed–if he was sincere or not God knows it.

        But what do you do? You come here and say to him, he should not acknowledge that he was wrong–I see that you have 68 human beings, who disagree with you, even more than the comments posted. But you continue to be defiant, even if the person you were defending surrendered to his guilt.

        Stop speaking about Jesus or God, in your futility, God is not with individuals like you, because you cannot see His warnings to you, you cannot abide in His Ways, which is of the Light –you do not know Him; for you do not know anything about Light–that is not possible for you.

        When are you going to stop, that crap about I am not human: If I am not perhaps that is why I saw the creatures you claim I see everyday. But you need to tell the story I told you!

        And doh, worry to talk about how I told you I got government money, say I told you when I was sick and could not work, I ended up on welfare!

        That is not a crime, again I reiterate if one lives in Canada, America, England, and anywhere in Europe, chances are they will collect welfare for at least two years of their life, and there is government tactics to substantiate that!

        Now how about you who with your medical condition will be on it forever unless God deliver you?
        You see; pick the mote out of your eye before you pluck it out of my eye. I have long recuperated from my illness, diabetes was not the cause, you like to lie so much you do not remember I told you I had an accident, and lost my memory, remember I told you when I went to Dominica I could not even remember most people. Don’t worry…

  17. The Real Facts
    October 6, 2015

    Many people on this Website make derogatory statements and are chided for it by others. They never apologize because they think they are correct. Sorry, I have to state, one is Francisco Telemaque.
    Rodney was reprimanded for his comments against Peter. Whether others told him to apologize or he took the initiative to do so, the fact is, he apologized. The next step is to either write Peter or arrange an appointment with him and apologize personally. If he does that, Augustine, in turn, from the goodness of his heart, must accept his apology and inform him, “I forgive you.”
    The Lord expects that of us to make amends with those whom we wronged and they accept our apology. The rest, we leave up to God.
    Since Rodney made a public apology to those who heard him and read his comments, we must accept his apology and say, “We forgive you.” The Lord expects this of us.
    We must do our utmost, no more to admonish him. He has a conscience and he admitted that he erred.

      Facts, doh call me name in you ting see: Days ago you found out how devious and cynical, and wicked Skerrit is: You turned against him for a brief moment, I suspect for as long as it took you to write your comments and submit it.

      By then you perhaps remember Skerrit promised to give you or some relatives something free, so you returned for a ride on his bandwagon. I am not you, when I drop someone like a hot potato, it is forever. You write the most derogatory comments on DNO.

      All of your comments are insulting to an educated mind, and since everybody writing on DNO except Elizabeth, are more educated than you are, you are insulting their intelligence!

      • October 8, 2015

        @Francisco Telemaque October 7, 2015<<<< "I am not you"

        Yes indeed! That is what I have been saying for quite a while–You are not the Facts, you are not any of the rest of us on DNO, and most certainly you are not me! You are an individual of your own, dressed like a man–a human being–but you are not one of us

        "You are insulting their intelligence" No! It is the other way around, you are the one who is insulting their intelligence–because you are doing things like they do, but in an extremely disgusting way–they all detests that; so do I.

        I am saying it again; you are the one who wrote that thing, with the blog name of the "Real Facts" you did the same thing to me. You are a true imposter, here on DNO–you even write good things about yourself by using other names, I have noticed all of it.

        You need to leave my name out of your dirtiness, or else you will find yourself in handcuffs when you are least expecting it; I am not talking physical either!

      You said one of them is Francisco Telemaque, but he is the only one–the rest of us are human beings, who will lash out from time tot time.

      That individual is extremely rude, insulting, without class, or etiquette, all the ugly things that should belong in a human being–no to mention his sinful ways of lying, cheating, among the others–no matter how much we try to tell him about himself, he continues to arrogantly defend it–how can an individual like that be classified in the species of human beings?

      After all! Even dogs and cats behave more mannerly than–I cannot even use the human terms to refer to that individual.

      The worst part is that everything he writes is nothing but fiction; that habit should confirm the fact that he doesn’t belong with us–he doesn’t even know that we find nothing in opinions–That must be the “academic education”, which he is claiming, which comrs from that “Twilight Zone” dwelling of his.

You need to stop speaking my personals to a media audience–especially those which you lie about. Whenever I post something it is always about the News Article–I have the right to my opinion!

        You are the one who mentioned my “Government Financial Support” as you write your mischief against me–you have been doing this for too long.

        I will do it back to you that same way: You told me that you are receiving Disability Support Payment for diabetes; and how you are getting other services for next to nothing–including you internet and telephone service–I do not know any of the other stuff which you are speaking about here–you may be lying about them as well, since you are very good at doing so.

        Now keep your decision and leave me alone–or else I write what is in mind; just as you do it.

    I am trying to understand why the supporters of the UWP think that Pastor Rodney is a true man of God while those of the Labour Party think that Peter Augustine is . Why have these two so called Pastors allowed themselves to be dragged into politics . Why are these two men still preaching division and politics in the name of Jesus. God is not pleased with you all.. Where is the wisdom that you as Pastors suppose to have? Read about the children of Israel. Even their prophets got involved in the idolatary that was around them and the same is true of these two political pastors of Dominica. When will you truly serve God and teach people to do the same.

  19. Baal's prophets
    October 6, 2015

    My point is, Peter Augustine was simply asked to pray. But Christian don’t just start to pray without praising and exalting our Lord Jesus Christ. Since Peter and them found a new god, peter had to begin his prayer by giving his new lord some praise and exaltation, so he exalted him by calling him “The best PM.”

    Let us not forget they referred to Skerrit as “jesus” during a convention and yes, the convention was opened in prayer by another Pentecostal pastor and yes, Peter Augustine was present along with BJ, other pastors including some that are with us no more, and never did anyone of them whether on their pulpit or otherwise, ever condemned that claim. So if you are not against it, Jesus said you are for it.
    To bad pastor Randy Rodney had to allow himself to be bewitched by them. It is wrong to kill a person and if you kill a person you will be jailed. However, if you kill a witch in the very act, you did not kill a human. Peter was rebuked as a politician and not as a…

  20. Baal's prophets
    October 6, 2015

    “Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. “1 Tim.5:20.
    What the evangelist did was very wrong and deserved to be rebuked openly. When Pastor Randy rebuked him openly it was the right and honorable thing to do. However, when he came back a week later and apologized, it was the wrong thing to do.
    Pas. Randy simply said that Peter is an evangelist and not a pastor. What is wrong about that? Does he pastor anyone? Then Randy went on to say that Peter’s statement was very dumb? What’s wrong with that? Wasn’t it? I mean why make such dumb statement especially when the any honest child can see it was wrong?
    I know the pressure from his church caused him to rethink; however, I believe it’s more than that. I believe he was under severe pressure from the religious prophets of Baal, that are bent on promoting skerrit as the best so they could continue to get fat.
    There was no need for what Peter did. He was asked to pray. But you see, before we pray they must exalt…

    What ever he said he meant every word. The spoken words can’t come back because it was being said. He should be ashamed of himself as a Pastor. He saying that he regret of what he said because of what was said about his roguish behavior.

    October 6, 2015

    It would have been nice if he had apologized to Evangelist Peter R. Augustine. He only apologized for making the statement at the time and place that he did. In other words, he stands by his statements and doesn’t realized that his ego got the better part of him. He needs to get off his high horse and publicly apologized directly to Evangelist Peter R. Augustine. Is pastor Rodney man enough to do that?

    Why the regret, you have nothing to regret, hold on to your opinion because you are right! . In spite the criticism you got, remember none of us are perfect.

    Nevertheless, the comment of Peter made, every other preacher on the planet should rebuke, that tool of Skerrit, and Satan! The man is deliberate he is serving Skerrit’s purpose, and not preaching the word of God.

    Since the incident of the tropical storm, there has been greater catastrophes around the world, could Peter honestly say God is causing all of this simply to get the attention of people? Across the United States, there has been flooding in which life’s are lost, an American Cargo ship more than eight hundred feet long went down in the Bermuda Triangle, taking the life of more than thirty people: Did God cause that?

      Real talk.Why the regret?He is stating the facts.As a preacher he should be praising God for His blessings and not the PM.When we start praising men instead of praising God our blessings will only be temporary.He says I the Lord is a jealous God.Men of God should only spread His word and sing His praise and no one else’s.

    • October 6, 2015

      That is another reason I know that you are an individual of your own species, but in the fashion of a human being. In other words you are your own origin, nothing and no one is like you–and there never will be anything like you.

      With regards to the debate of your mind–pertaining to the calamities of the world–have you ever read this in the Bible? Maybe that one should cause to be silent or you continue to debate with God, for it is not against Peter Augustine–read this below from Isaiah 45: 7:

      I form the light and create darkness,
      I make peace and CREATE CALAMITY;
      I, the Lord, do all these things.’

      Other words for CALAMITY, are disaster, catastrophe, mishap, misfortune, tragedy, blow–God said that He created all of those–Tropical Storm Erika and all the others are no exception!

      God knows why, where, and how He allows those things. If you cannot perceive this in your mind, then you know nothing about God–your talks about Him is untrue and futile

      • October 6, 2015

        Here is another one for your information–this one is spoken by Jesus at Matthew 24: 21-22

        “For then there will be Great Tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened”.

        Jesus spoke about this after He had finished talking to His disciples about all of those things that is happening all over the place today–Notice that He said the days will be shortened, for the sake of God’s Elect–so who will be behind the destructions of the “Great Tribulation”–can you answer this?

        How come you agree that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, how come you know that Nebuchadnezzar and Babylon was destroyed; well that is if you know that–but you cannot understand that God has a say in what is happening all over the world today?

      • October 6, 2015

        What, man does not know is that, we are protected from God’s Holiness, by which He executes His wrath, through His Love in Jesus Christ.

        That is what it means of the saying: “Jesus is the Mediator between God (His Holiness) and us mankind”. In the days of ancient Israel, Moses was that mediator, or else the Israelites would not live in the Wilderness for 40 days, much more for 40 years and onwards.

        At Genesis 6: 1-8 “And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh– Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth– So the Lord said, “I WILL DESTROY MAN whom I have created from the face of the earth—–

        As you read the situations of the ancient Israelites you will notice that God has never changed–His wrath comes from His Holiness–you are lucky that Jesus is standing in the way on your behalf, for with your attitude and conducts–you would not be in existence today, because of God’s Holiness

      Now if Rodney wish to return among the mouse I feel sorry for him!

      Every man or woman has a right to their opinions, however, when someone claims to be a preacher, it is dangerous to make suck stupid claims about one we know to be a very corrupt and incompetent individual as Peter has done. You see in Dominica idiots such as Peter are reverend by a bunch of illiterate people, their kind are like this “if the preacher, parson, priest or elder say so, it must be true because they are talking about God.”

      When someone comes out and tell people that God is killing people in order to get the attention of Dominicans, that man must be condemned as an idiot, because we know the science behind the weather, and people who are illiterate like him believe his nonsense! That is…

    This is why you are respected and loved as much. You recognized you made a mistake and have apologized for it. There is nothing wrong with that. That’s the attributes of a true Man of God. I used a capital M for man cause that’s what you are, not a boy or a shim. Your apology has not made you any less of a man, so keep up the good work Pas.

    Pastor Randy, I am sorry but you behaved like a chicken with no backbone whatsoever. You did not even show spiritual maturity and you have the cabal laughing at you and the state of the church in Dominica.

    The excuse Pastor Randy gave brought more shame to Christianity than the nonsense of Peter Augustine. I believe is either the pastor bathed with that thing water, he was bought by Skerrit, or like John the Baptist of old, who under pressure douted whether Jesus was the real one or should he look for another Matt. 11.
    His response leaves me to wonder if there is any hope for the church as wrong and evil will continue to prevail and one is bold enough to say it is wrong and show the right way.
    I guess the Pastor want to join his former friend like bj, Augustine and others as spiritual advisor of Skerrit. I feel Dominica downfall started the moment Skerrit chose those greedy pastors as his spiritual leaders. In previous years when priests were advisors things were much better.

    If De pastor Rod regrets making such comments and he’s serious about it then he should apologize to pastor Augustine.

    Pastor Rodney, an apology should not have a justification attached. Still I am glad you recognized your lack of wisdom in this instance. God bless you Pastor and all the best to you.

    He said what many people thought… the truth! Only thing is he said it out loud and in the public domain. But it was indeed a dumb statement. Religious leaders need to stop getting so embroiled in politics! Augustine is a prime example.

      @Kim October 6, 2015

      If you call it RELIGOUS that is what POLITICS is about! So many of you are writing comments without knowing and understanding what you all are talking about.

      Where God is concerned those who abide by His ways, are in a RELATIONSHIP with Him, by their faith and the guidance and teachings of His Holy Spirit–regardless of who they are; as long as they know that God in full control of their walk on a day to day basis.

      God is not about RELATION, He gave the Law to Moses on behalf of His people–they turnd that Law into Religion. You all don’t even understand that the Jews who were God’s own chosen people, gave Jesus up to CRUCIFIXION because He wouldn’t follow their RELIGIOUS rules and regulations

      You people need to study the Word of God in the Bible instead of adding Him embroiled in your confusions of human wisdom and philosophy–where He doesn’t belong.

      You are an idiot!

      the fact that you consider yourself half of a human tells a lot about your mentality. In slavery Black people were said to be 3/5 (.600) of a white in reality meaning it would take three black people to make one white.

      You are even less than that, since .600 is () .600.

    So is Pastor Randy saying that Peter R Augustine was right to make the statement he made? If not, what is wrong about calling him out? After all, if Augustine had any respect for his faith he would not have said what he said, and make it worse, he said he did it a first time.

    How can I now trust and believe anything pastor Randy says? I thought he was speaking for God but clearly he showed us that God’s voice is lost in Dominica these days as none seems to be bold enough to say thus saith the Lord. How can we talk about God and cannot rebuke wrong? During the 2009 election, we watch bj close down Portsmouth church on a sunday to attend DLP rally and no one rebuked him. Then we saw him decorate the Pentecostal church in RED and he too dressed in Red on a Sunday Morning service, that the Skerrit cabal attended. Again no one condemned that. During a state funeral Peter did the same thing, no one said nothing. He repeated it again and this time Randy rebuked him; he now regretting?

      When I read the article I was dismayed and disappointed with the tone of Pastor Rodney’s comments. While I by no means endorse Uncle Peter’s statement, the matter in which Pastor Rodney reacted did not depict that of a man of God, that was pure maypuis, in my mind I could see him “kawaying”. He could have stated that he disagreed without spewing all of that vitriol. As a man of the cloth, he should have done it better. You can’t call souls to Christ with an attitude like that.

    When I read articles like this I really have to wonder if Dominica has gone to the point of no return. Though I am not sure I know Pastor Randy Rodney, but listening to his program on Fridays, really use to give me hope that like Elijah of old, that God still had a few good ones who had not bowed their knees to Skerit. However, after listening to him on Friday, I got very disturbed and wondered if there is still hope.

    The pastor acted like a chicken, and I definitely cannot believe he is serious about anything he has condemned or will condemn.

    As a believer, I believe if he felt he transgressed he should regret and confess. However, that was not the case with the pastor. The evangelist did something that is dumb and the pastor quite frankly rebuked him. What about that that’s wrong?
    I feel Randy was under pressure from the cabal and they must have used those spiritual advisors to put a guilt trip on the pastor. His program on Friday was like that of a chicken that is confused.

      @John the Baptist the 2nd October 6, 2015 “However, after listening to him on Friday, I got very disturbed and wondered if there is still hope”.

      No wonder you identified yourself with that name above, the first one doubted as well

      However if you do not know it, hope is not from the word of man like yourself; God gives His people hope–especially the hope of living with Him Eternally, through Jesus Christ

      That hope in you should be born from the knowledge that Jesus gave His Life that you might live–that hope is confirmed in the fact that Jesus took His Life again, to assure you that He is walking with you as you walk the path of Life.—that is if you are walking that path at all!

      And so, if you say you had hope because of the words of a certain man, no wonder this hope in you has died–because it was a belief in you, but with no grounds–now think about that!

    Confession is good for the soul. It is good to accept when you wrong and admit it. Then do better next time. We are not perfect and without faults. You are forgiven. Remember your responsibility as a minister is for peace, love ,unity, forgiveness among other things. Lead don’t follow.

    You will get more publicity as you seem to be seeking. If you are “sorry” or regret for your comments against the other person, “pastor.” Then you should go down on your knees and tell God. So do you just get all crazy headed and roll your tongue on a person without reflecting on the damage you may cause? Man you are operating in the flesh; and should take a time off from behind your pulpit. Let your deacon carry on. You aught to be more temperate as an adult and a PRESS-TOR. I mean “pasta.”

      Derrick, you are a fool, if which of the two is actually a wolf in sheep clothing : If I had to judge, I would say the man who gives glory to the little Dominica god Skerrit is more a wolf in sheep clothing. He is right that puppet Peter is playing and sing Skerrit song for something in return.

      Just because some say God, did this, or God send someone does not make their stupid political comments correct! Were it pertains to the weather, that plays a role in human life God ordained it to be so, we prove that in science, illiterate people like Peter, has no knowledge of Physical Geography or any scientific knowledge about the universe, and the weather; many of us has, and I can tell you he is full of garbage!
