"The reason why I am so anti-religious is because since the inception of religion it is always been man's attempt to try to define who God is within culture, instead of allowing God to define who he is to man." Kirk Franklin

KIRK FRANKLIN SPEAKS ABOUT GOD

For Franklin, religious organizations often use God to further their own ends, rather than doing God's work.

Franklin believes that religious communities are structured according to each culture's needs, and not according to God's tenets.

"Every religion is always sculptured to benefit the one that created it. Even when you look at the Church of England and how the Church of England was developed, so the king could get a divorce," he said.

A RETURN TO TRUE FAITH

Franklin believes that in order to regain respect, religious organizations will have to admit wrongdoing and make amends, just as secular systems have done in the recent past.

"Just like there are many mistakes in the legal system in America. There are so many police that has done many many bad things. There are so many times where the judicial system has gotten it wrong," he said.

FOCUSING ON GOD'S PLAN, NOT MAN'S INTERPRETATION

Franklin, who has spent his entire career in bringing his love of God to people through Gospel music, said,

"We have to shed light on the good, while also acknowledging the bad when it comes to the idea of faith. don't throw God out, just because some idiots made some mistakes."

Franklin hopes that those who have been disillusioned by the frail men who represent organized religion will not turn away from Faith, but embrace God and bring Him into their lives as a personal choice.
