Lord Have Mercy Kirk Franklin Throws Pastor Jamal Bryant Under The Bus!
Reader, we can always count on Kirk for his aggressive judgments against the leaders in the church however, he has yet to be as aggressive in compassion and the spirit of gentle restoration (Galatians 6:1), as he himself had a fall from grace and was restored.
According to Kirk when Christians make mistakes publicly it affects the entire body of Christ, and the minister of music has something to say about it. "As a Christian, I'm not enjoying all of the attention we're getting lately for our public failures. As imperfect as I am, I've seen Grace ..," Franklin, 46, tweeted. "I know it's power when we confess our sins, and not make excuses. When a Christian falls, it affects everyone; not just the one fallen." The Grammy-winning producer emphasized that even though people will forgive each other, he said it's equally important to admit one's own shortcomings. "People will forgive; I've seen it in my own life. They just don't like BULL. Our job to win souls, justifying our wrong ain't the solution," he wrote. "Anyone can use a scripture to defend their view, that's why you gotta know the whole book, and not just the verse. … I love my team ... and I hate when we lose. Because when we lose, the kingdom feels it." While it is unclear exactly who or what Kirk Franklin is addressing, his tweets come amid Baltimore megachurch Pastor Jamal Bryant's alleged scandal in which he fathered a son out of wedlock and has failed to keep up with monthly child support payments.
