Kirk Franklin Preaching Good News

The title to his new album, Losing My Religion, sparked mixed reaction, but the 45-year-old singer, songwriter and producer has been explaining why he believes people should focus on their relationship with Christ more than anything else.


“Religion, throughout the years, has become a very oppressive thing that doesn’t allow people to get to know the God it was created to try to lead them to. So basically, it’s just like marriage cannot guarantee intimacy, religion doesn’t guarantee relationship,”

“It doesn’t guarantee you’re going to have a loving relationship with God. So God becomes this distant person that’s always pointing at my sins, always beating me up and you never know Him as a friend and as a father.”

On the contrary, Franklin made a point to speak about how much God loves people, despite their sins. In elucidating his point Kirk Franklin, preached ‘good news’ in line with what popular preacher Uebert Angel, has been championing through his good news revolution.


“We don’t have to try to be perfect. We’ll never be,” he said on the radio show. “It’s really only one person that has lived the Christian life and that was Christ Himself.”

According to the songwriter and former choir director, people should not rely on man to determine their personal relationship with God.

“We think we need man and these systems to make us right with God and it’s not that. It’s when we accept His gift, we’re right. Right there and then, we’re right,” he said. “We’re getting rid of the systems and all the rules, and the processes, and it’s like, let’s fall in love with the Father and see Him as a father that loves us, as flawed as we are.”

Franklin’s message is so much in sync with the Good News message propagated by the multi-millionaire turned philanthropic preacher Uebert Angel who leads Spirit Embassy (The Good News Church) which has now become synonymous with Good News.
