Is Kirk Franklin Waking Up And Realizing Maybe Christianity Is Not For Him???


Reader, your feelings:

Kirk Franklin is now claiming to have given up religion, after years of making millions of dollars off of it while at the same time leading so many astray. Yep, he is about to lose some fans for this. One of gospel music’s most devoted disciple of Jesus is now calling him a fake.....after making millions of dollars off his name for years.



For his entire career, Kirk Franklin has been very successful at helping others praise God and enriching the praise and worship experience in churches all around the world with his award-winning gospel songs.



 But according to the 7x GRAMMY AWARD-winning gospel singer, he is no longer “God’s Property”. Furthermore, The former “Jesus Freak” is advocating that Jesus is as fake as the tooth fairy… Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. What? Yes! It’s true, as Franklin admits “The concept of religion as we know it is a lie”.

Kirk Franklin Gets Candid About Religion As We Know It: “Jesus Is As Fake As The Easter Bunny”

Comments

  1. THIS ARTICLE PARTLY FAKE. Yes the song is real and he does have an album called losing my religion. Which is good...religion is about rules. Serving God is about relationship

    HOWEVER i have searched the internet and have yet to find where Kirk said Jesus was fake like the Easter bunny.....

    What i do see in his social media is him praising God..

    But religion is bad. .this was what was wrong with the Pharisees in the bible. .they had religion but no relationship. .

    1. We are all on a spiritual journey. Why can't he just be arriving at a new place of revelation and enlightenment regarding? Not everything about has to be a negative.
      People of color have always been spiritual people. When Africans were brought to the Anericas through slavery, we lost everything. It should be celebrated that he may now be waking up to our ancestral/traditional practices and spiritual beliefs. Celebrate him. Don't condemn. Slavery was a hell of an ordeal. But our spirit survived.

  3. Yo, is this true??
    “I can’t thank you enough for the love you’ve shown my new song,” he tweeted. “Every artist is afraid to tell the true that God is a lie , I’m just not afraid to admit it! WANNA BE HAPPY? Let go of God!
    Explaining the concept of his new message to Bruce Lane and Folks5 News, Franklin said:
    “Every human being was wired with the desire for happiness. And we will try different things all in the pursuit of that feeling. I’m saying, if you really want to be happy, you have to start with YOURSELF, don’t be brainwashed by a make believe diety.

    2. If white people set it up, why is the physical description of 90% of the main characters black, brown or bronzed? That would be counter productive. And I will say this had I not seen the immediate natural and super natural effects of God and the power of Yeshua(Jesus).
      You only know what you live. Real talk. Kinda Gangsta. You can't talk about it if you ain't live it.

  5. Its false. the black consuious folks twisted his interview with BILLBOARD. the interview with Billboard can be found online. He never said anything about Jesus being fake.

    Also, think about it , if this man thought Jesus was fake, why would he pushing a song from said stating Jesus has already provided everything we need. Listen to the words on Wanna Be happy.
    Not a fan of his music but the article is false. I cant belive people are so quick to believe a lie

  6. The life of a Christian is not to achieve "happiness" in living. The fruit of the Spirit is joy. I mean I hear this type rhetoric all the time... we need to denounce religion. This is nothing new. Even Jesus and His disciples taught against religion. They spoke of a new way where all who are saved, enters into a newness of life as a peculiar people and a lively stone offering their lives as a sacrifice for the SAVIOR. I mean what is KIRK and DEITRICK and the rest of these clones talking about? Seems to me that they have already shunned religion with their style of music, dress and culture to influence many. And the irony of all this is that they are still screaming THEY WANT TO BE HAPPY (LOL). Obviously the don't take to much being being joyful. But if they really want to be blessed, defined as happy, the Bible says let them be poor in spirit, let them mourn, become meek, hunger and thirst for righteousness, be merciful, be pure of heart, be peacemakers. This is simple the teachings of Jesus we all learned in Sunday School as children. Now we have here this 45 year old grown man, who by the way has gain many worldly accomplishments, fame and fortune crying like a lil girl that he wants everyone and himself to be HAPPY. What is it really that KIRK wants to do? I don;t get it. Christ who suffered a horrible death did not die so that we can be happy. Just like he suffered we should arm ourselves likewise.
    We got to bear our cross, separate ourselves from this world and commit all to Him until He comes. MAN UP little KIRK!!!

    1. Facebook Pastor:Friday, 16 October, 2015

      Thanks Anonymous,of course for the Christian, we know this is a foolish quest seeking after happiness. We are to focus on God and God alone, and seek after ... The real nature of happiness, and why it should not be our central focus.

    2. You are welcome Facebook Pastor...I think about a guy I used to work with who left a six figure salary job to fulfill his call to be a missionary in a foreign country. So many have sacrificed giving up the luxuries of living in the States to spread the Gospel abroad. Many street preachers constantly being ridiculed, and not to mention the Apostle Paul who had vile opposition, yet he was willing to give His life for the one He met on the road to Damascus. And this dude Kirk who has gained so much materially through his faux ministry living high on the hog...I mean...come on...This dude...I mean... the fruit he bears now speaks much to the discord and selfish ambition he is trying to bring to the church. Sad thing is many will continue to follow and support him. Not me. Instead of listening to music by this cat, and the gospel radio stations so to psych ourselves into believing we are closer to God because we listen to gospel more than we do secular music, we need to spend more time planning to tailor our days reading and studying the Word of God and other helpful christian material out there. As I said before, this music these folks put out are not according to the biblical standards (psalm, hymns, and spiritual songs. MAKING MELODY in our hearts).

    3. To ne happy will takeca lifes journey only kings and selfish people desire to be worshipped they love the idea of power over lives but the Spirit that flows through our very existence creator of all things living and dead wants us to be happy to live and appreciate our lives and the lives of others in selflessness and in love to love all life is to truly as you wish to call it "worship" "GOD" if anyone that paid Jesus any attention since this is the base religion we are speaking He said religion is for man but to live in the Spirit and truth is to truly be a Child of GOD accepting that GOD is in you not the church is to be save ... In order to enter into heaven you must first enter as a child.... Meaning innocent ignorant and pure... Religion strips us of that and trains us to be a sheep ... The spirit will convey a message to us regardless if the whole book is a lie.... Jesus also said He speaks in parables and only the people who seeks out GOD will understand.... Churches takes us away from the message and focuses solely on death our death jesus birth and death and all the deaths before it teaches us punishment in order to keep us obdient it restricts our souls but "GOD" wants us to be happy and love our lives.... Kirk got that message and i been got it years ago... The you also have to know that being of a different social status there is more info he collects that only few sheep(lower class) people are exposed to.... Dont question his desire to tell the truth explore it but no one will because the bible says dont question the contents or you'll be questioning GOD... I think dont question the bible or any other book cuz you may stumble across the many lies and begin to seek out truth and will no longer be an obedient sheep just my theory and opinion but im not going bk to religion it scares me im no longer living cuz im scared i msy die and go to hell if i drop a pen

  7. Kirk Franklin is talking about "religion" versus relationship with Jesus Christ. There is a huge difference; and sad to say many church going folks don't know the difference.
    Jesus hated religion. The majority of His opposition came from religious leaders, the Pharisees and Sadducees. Religions are man made and are based on trying to get to God and trying to please God through rules and regulations and works. A personal relationship with Jesus Christ is obtained by salvation through grace and faith in Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 says, "For by grace are you saved, through faith; and this not of your own, it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast." Religion is mainly composed of concepts based on traditions and doctrines of men.     
       
    The statement "Jesus is as fake as the Easter bunny" was made by an individual on Facebook by the name of War Prime Sullivan. This statement was not made by Kirk Franklin.

    2. Patricia:

      Kirk Franklin's talent is what opened doors for him. I minister in one of the largest jail systems in the nation. and inmates have gotten saved just listening to his music. I know firsthand that the Holy Spirit has used the music of Kirk Franklin to touch hearts. I have seen hardened people fall to their knees when "Now Behold the Lamb" was playing in a service. Jesus is using Kirk Franklin's music for His glory! Don't knock what you don't understand!

  8. Yeah but at least Jesus stated an alternative to religion. He said a man must be born again. Paul who was a strict Pharisee talked clearly in many of his writings the need to accept God by faith in the only sacrifice he gave in His son's death. Can't compare Kirk here. Kirk merely states he's giving up religion and mentions nothing of an alternative but to be "HAPPY" (whatever that means) and I interpret "happy" to mean something totally unlike being blessed like Christ preached about in the beatitde. I am not ruse by Kirk singing. I am not tricked by his songs. I am not deceived by his message. This dude is of the world. Crying about being "happy" because he desires to tear down the truth of the word of God and replace it with some contemporary junk.

    1. No, Anonymous the album title should be “Kirk Franklin is losing his soul” and wants to help others do the same. This man has never been about the Jesus of the BIBLE and it's finally showing.
      From reading the link article, it appears that this man took a page out of TD Jakes playbook in making Jesus the product. To go even further, this man seems to follow the gospel of a Joel Osteen, which is a man center/self/worldly gospel……This man is without a doubt a man of the world and not a man of God…..I’m sorry to say that to all those who like his music. This photo tells the whole story in whom he worships.

    2. Patricia:

      God's Word is the FINAL authority not your opinion, your "personal" beliefs, doctrine or your emotional reaction about individuals (Joel Osteen, Kirk Franklin, etc).   Since, you are not the Holy Spirit, you cannot make an accurate assessment about a person's relationship with Jesus.  You have neither a heaven or hell to put anyone in. What would you have thought about Rahab or the woman caught in adultery if you didn't know what the Bible said about how God felt about them?

      Delete
    3. And who are YOU Anonymous to pass judgment against Patricia Hamilton saying she can not make an accurate assessment about a person's relationship? And since you want to quote scriptures, how about the one that says "Ye shall know them by their fruits."

      When the early Christians feared Paul because they questioned whether he was truly converted, he may still have been a murderer, Paul used that as an opportunity to testify of the Christ he met on the Damascus Road, convincing them of his regeneration, to get closer to the people of God he was one of them.

      And since you want to ask a question about Rahab and the woman caught in adultery, I ask you, do you think Kirk should be like Paul, and explain to the brothers and sisters whom he supposed to have ministered to for years, and clear up this controversy, this "rumor" (if indeed it is a rumor") about his falling away from the faith? I'm quite sure Kirk is aware of this huge indictment against him.I mean... coming from Kirk... it's really a thin line between saying "losing religion to become happy" and "JESUS is like the Easter Bunny".

      I say to Patricia Hamilton, GREAT DISCERNING and good going about your comments as the Bible tells us we should judge, lest we be judged.

      Delete
    4. Anonymous you are all over the page. You said, 

      "And who are YOU Anonymous to pass judgment against Patricia Hamilton saying she can not make an accurate assessment about a person's relationship? "

      First of all, I didn't judge Patricia Hamilton or "pass judgment". Re-read my comments.   I made a statement backed up by the truth of God's word.  Not my word.

      According to the Word of God, she can't make an accurate assessment about the state of Kirk Franklin's relationship with Christ and neither can you!

      God's word says in 1st Samuel 16:7 

      "God does not see as humans see. Humans look at outward appearances, but the LORD looks into the heart." 

      God's word also says in Jeremiah 17:9-10

      "The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it? But I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve."

      1st Kings 8:39

      "then hear in heaven Your dwelling place, and forgive and act and render to each according to all his ways, whose heart You know. FOR YOU (THE LORD) ALONE KNOW THE HEARTS OF ALL THE SONS OF MEN

      Psalm 44:21

      Would not God find this out? For He knows the secrets of the heart.

      Secondly, you said "you will know them by their fruits."

      Jesus was specifically referring to doctrines of those who oppose the truth. False Prophets.  False Phrophets don't lead people to Jesus.  Their doctrine is usually against what the Word teaches.  Generally, they add just enough truth of God's word in their teaching and doctrine to entrap gullible Christians who don't know the Word or don't know how to rightly divide the word. 

       "Watch out for false prophets.They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

      By their fruit you will recognize them."  

      the Messsge Bible Translation.  Matthew 7:1-5

      “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults— unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging. It’s easy to see a smudge on your neighbor’s face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. Do you have the nerve to say, ‘Let me wash your face for you,’ when your own face is distorted by contempt? It’s this whole traveling road-show mentality all over again, playing a holier-than-thou part instead of just living your part. Wipe that ugly sneer off your own face, and you might be fit to offer a washcloth to your neighbor.

      Kirk Franklin still leads people to Christ.  

      In response to your question about him addressing rumors, he is not obligated to do so. I think he should ignore false and irreverent babble. 2nd Timothy 2:16

    5. That’s where you’re WRONG. You did pass judgment on Patricia saying she can’t make an accurate judgment of Kirk’s relationship with Jesus. Paul assessed the Corinthian believers as “carnel” because they operated as babes in the flesh. We know of the sins these believers committed in the Book of Corinthians. His assessment of them was accurate. Peter assessed those who appeared to be godly men as “false prophets", because according to 2 Peter 2 they privately shall brought in damnable heresies, denying the Lord that bought them, their ways were pernicious, through covetousness they used feigned words make merchandise of Gods people. The Bible emphatically states 1 John 2:23 “Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.” According to this verse, anyone who denies the Son, we can accurately judge as not having a relationship with the Father.

      Patricia was careful with her words saying “it APPEARS that this man took a page out of TD Jakes playbook”, this man seems to follow the gospel of a Joel Osteen, which is a man center/self/worldly gospel (SHE IS CORRECT IN HER ASSESSMENT ABOUT JOEL OSTEEN). Now she did state directly “This man is without a doubt a man of the world and not a man of God….” Though you may not agree wit her, doesn’t mean you can say biblically she cannot make an accurate assessment about a person's relationship with Jesus.

      Interesting you bought up II Tim 2:16 “16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.” Seems that Kirk himself should do the shunning of vain babbling. Kirk’s talking about getting rid of religion to inject “happiness” is babbling words. The Christian walk should not be to obtain a feeling of happiness. Christ and Paul talked about not following after the order of religion, but they had a godly alternative to follow after the order of the Spirit. If Kirk has a problem with religion his alternative should be like Christ’s and Paul. I think Kirk is like a false prophet, bring in damnable heresies. I believe Kirk wants to get rid of good and godly traditions, and usher in his new way of wordliness and carnality.
      For Kirk to make happiness as a goal of the Christian is foolish. The fruit of the Spirit is joy, not personal happiness. If we want to be blessed (happy) we should be poor in spirit, mourn, become meek, hunger and thirst for righteousness, be merciful, be pure of heart, be peacemakers. These are the words of the LORD HIMSELF. I’m sure this is what KIRK means when he talks about being happy…NOT!!!

    6. 2nd Timothy 2:23-24

      Again I say, don't get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights.

      The Lord's bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach (not twist scriptures!)

      *drops ��*

    7. 2nd Timothy 2:23 has nothing to do with quarrelling. The verse states "But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase to more ungodliness.

      In another version it states "But avoid profane and vain wordiness, for it will develop into ungodliness."

      Again the world teaches this idea of "happiness", not the Bible. Kirk is unbiblical with his approach to promote this concept because it is vain and according to the Scripture you referenced, will lead to more ungodliness.

      This issue with Kirk has nothing to do with arguing, moreso to do with discerning, which the Bible commands us to do.John says "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God:"

  10. Ann, Ive been to his Instagram and I didn't see anywhere where he said anything about Jesus being fake or an easter bunny. I would take anything from that website with a grain of salt, it is full of a sprinkle of truth mixed with lies. I'm no Kirk fan, but from what I've read on his insta, he want's people to realize that Christianity is having a relationship with God and no one else. Religion will get you nowhere, but a relationship with God is the key. If he had said this on his own media pages i'd be inclined to agree, but I haven't seen that (about Jesus being fake I mean)

  12. This is a fake article, a satire. It's really important to not take anything on the internet serious. This album is really about losing the religion that the Pharisees practiced and which Jesus likened them to "white-washed" sepulchers. Don't believe everything you read!

  13. I don't think its about losing the religion of the Pharisee. Its about rebellion against the traditional to usher in things for personal happiness. NOT GOOD...

  14. Congrats, to Kirk. He's finally awoke out of the Matrix...

    The religion control has had a grip on our peoples minds for centuries and it's time to let go of belief and get in to truth (knowledge). Beliefs are for little boys and girls, Knowledge is for adults seeking true salvation.

    However, DON'T throw away your bibles they will be needed for your studies!

  16. I would my brother has finally awaken, Jesus is the product supremacy, control and brainwashing. There exist no actual proof to his existence other than the Bible, so one must ask can the bible be relied upon as truth ? I think not !!!!! It was written by and for men for the purpose of control ! So if indeed Kirk said it he would be accurate !
