    I'm not going to disrespect you Kirk Franklin, but you should be ashamed of yourself for misinforming people the way that you are. If you know about Horus, then you know what you said was not true. Horus was just a concept, and never physically existed. Likewise, Jesus was the "Greek" version of the concept, and never physically existed either. Christians are making this thing much more difficult than it really is. Horus and Jesus are both metaphors for the sun in the sky. The difference being that one preceded the other by a very long time. "For the lord God is a Sun" Psalms 84:11

    Why does Charlamagne assume that old white males don't have empathy? That's so weird. There's differences in how people see things - it's not a lack of empathy. To change their view you have to try and understand where people are coming from otherwise you really won't change anything and everyone will keep misunderstanding the opposite side.

    The Bible says pork is abomination some Christians say the Old Testament is done away with Smh, Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. The law is not done away with! If that’s the case we all can do whatever the Old Testament says don’t do!

    He isn't given the honest true gospel, he compromises for fame. If you are a true Christian you have to give people the truth of God's word, so if you don't then you aren't true. Jesus said if you are ashamed of me before man I will be ashamed of you before my father and by him side stepping the true word he is ashamed of the Jesus. Not judging him but I believe in truth and if someone gives me the gospel give me the truth so I can change what is not right to please God because in the end he is the only Judge.

    We've been screaming "love" for 400+ years, where has it got us?
    According to the Bible, love is the keeping the commandments. If we keep the commandments, that's when we're gonna see some change. 1 John 5:3 KJV.
    FURTHERMORE.... What kinda Bible is Kirk reading? Scripture is what God breathed?? Where does it say that at?

    • LC Jones
      LC Jones 22 days ago

      Timothy 3:16 All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness..
      This is why you have to continually study the Bible so we can know and remember what’s in it.

    I'm not sure how conversion therapy is a problem if a gay person wants to be heterosexual. Should we not respect that person's decision? God's way and man's way are two differing ways. God's way is to save and restore relationship with Him according to His will. There is a way that seems right to man but leads to destruction. Truth is perceived as hate in a post truth society.
    To God be the glory. Peace and love.

    People need to start reading books, again, books help you to see a different point of view. If you can't put yourself in someone else's shoes you wont have any empathy, use your phone/tablet/computer but moderately & with caution. These devices including tv are in so many ways are dangerous, I think everyone should watch their intake and what they input into the mind.

    How can someone who says they are a believer of God sit down on a platform of someone who calls themself a god, openly admits he doesn’t believe in the Bible; come and sit on the show? If he call hisself a god, why is he trying to debate about a doctrine he doesn’t believe in? Just gone by your business, this interview has done nothing but scratch itching ears. 🤦🏾‍♀️ I would have love for him to bring a true representation of the church on here, G.craig Lewis would have chewed him up, oh yeah I’m sorry he wouldn’t even be considered a candidate. Robert breaker, Charles Stanley, George Laurie, anyone who is truly standing for the Gospel.

      Deanna Husser yeah Jesus did, Jesus also told them the truth and there was nothing watered down about it.

    • Deanna Husser
      Deanna Husser 24 days ago +1

      Jesus didnt sit with the saints, he sat with the sinners in order to bring them in. He may call himself God but he knows he isnt one. It isnt about debating the word of God it is about showing what real Christian's are supposed to be doing which is showing love, talking things through and trying to understand someone else. This was not the platform to debate God's word.

    This is deep. I appreciate his honesty but therapy for a very long time gets repetitive but then again what do I know. As a Christian I am taking steps to love more and judge less but people do need to take responsibility and not stay a victim and become victorious. I personally want to grow daily and become like Christ not like people of the world.

    My friends there's only one way to heaven and That's through the blood of Jesus to cleanse you of your sins and we must repent of our sins to God and turn away from them no man or person can get to heaven unless he or she been born again born of the holy spirit that convicts you of your sin no homosexaul or thief or liar or adulterer or idol worshipper which mean putting anything above God no murder or drunkard and a person who use God name in vain by saying omg or using the Holy kings name as a curse word by saying Jesus Christ that name Jesus is above every name above Muhammad above allah above Buddha that name Jesus is Holy no one who have sex outside of a marriage will see the kingdom of God you must fully submit your life under the authority of Christ by giving up such useless things and ask God for forgiveness even though Jesus forgives sins we Shouldn't live any longer in them i say these things so you know the truth we all must die some day make sure your right with Jesus and have a personal relationship with him through prayer and the studying of the scriptures i love you all

  • Acts 051726
    Acts 051726 Month ago +2

    Didn't say a word about the pride flag behind him. The only reason the breakfast club invites carnal Christians like Kirk Franklin on their show is because they know he won't preach against sin. God is love but love disciplines and corrects you when you wrong. God chastises his sons when they misbehave.
    God don't change so why didn't Kirk address Charlagmane "the god" when he started spouting nonsense about racial issues?
    God don't care about skin color. He looks at the heart. This show is pure foolishness and many people are being deceived.
    Why didn't Kirk address Angela Yee when she started spouting nonsense about conversion therapy?
    Homophobic means fear of humans and rest assured God is definitely not afraid of humans. He dealt with humans who displayed immoral behavior in Sodom and Gommorah. God hates sin so people who practice sin don't belong to him.
    God also isn't anti-Semitic either especially since Jesus was crucified as "King of the Jews".
    All these accusations by Charlagmane "the god" was ridiculous and if Charlagmane is "the god"...why doesn't he just write his own little Bible since he feel some kind of way about the real Bible?

    Kirk Franklin is an example of a christian who compromises the Bible for the sake of selling records and being accepted by secular talk show hosts.
    Wise Christians will steer clear of this example portrayed by Kirk Franklin.

      This text was really referring to marriage ... how are you supposed to spread the love of Christ without speaking to non-believers .. you don’t have to immerse yourself into their life ... but you can lend guidance and love to them to show them that you can love God and get dirty .. even Jesus got his hands dirty ! .. if they BELIEVE in God and have general knowledge .. I can at least share some of my insight with them .. not necessarily become best friends or lovers. 🤷🏾‍♂️

    I lost my faith at a young age because of my family and the way things went but I've always respected those who truly believe because of people like this I can say this man has almost all of my morals and ideals and the only big difference is he believes in something I do not but is one of the religious people who has my utmost respect never heard of him before this interview but for me he's the epitome of a purist believer he understands that the original intention of the Bible and God is love and understanding and he like so many others reaffirmed my belief that we are all a product of circumstance and so long as we can all be objective we can truly learn to understand every individuals particular circumstances that has molded them and made them into who they are and grow from it becoming stronger smarter and safer I also have to say it was very enjoyable to hear from someone who's fairly philosophical no matter who you are or where you're at the study of life can be a beautiful thing to one's overall health I also like when Charlemagne started talking about old racist white men his rebuttal was not to feed into it but rather to illuminate upon the situation in itself letting him know that there is people regardless of race who care more for equality than you can possibly imagine I'm no Advocate but I'm about five different races and if you say something that catches my ear I'll check you on the spot and y'all need to start showing Donnell Rawlings some damn respect before I get on ya ass

    I just love that Kirk is so honest about who he is and what he has done. Most people don't have the guts to be that authentic. Ase, Kirk Franklin. I think it takes a big man of integrity to admit how he really feels about talking about his own insecurities and some really personal things. God gave us Kirk so we could learn to live and love ourselves in our imperfections.
