Franklin, 44, is a staple in the gospel music industry with his own syndicated radio program, Kirk Franklin’s Praise, television hosting gigs on The Game Show Network’s “The American Bible Challenge” and BET’s “Sunday Best.” The entertainer is very vocal on Twitter about his faith and recently directed a series of messages at his fellow Christians just before the new year.
In his message, Franklin pointed out that a lot of Christians live in fear that keeps them from dealing with people and things that are not labeled as Christian.
“Too many of us Christians are afraid of losing what we never paid for. We don’t have non Christian friends, listen to different music because we’re afraid,” Franklin tweeted. “And we label it all as ungodly. So everything about us, our gifts, language, creativity, lives in a bubble…So the people that listen to us, think like us. If your faith is that fragile, it will become judgmental. In 2015, the bubble has to burst..,” Franklin wrote. “And we can still rock Jesus. #letsmakeGodfamousandnotourselves.”
How do you feel about the challenge? What’s in your game plan for 2015?
