I love Kirk Franklin's music. I believe I own all of his albums and even ones that is not his and he's on. Now Kirk you are out there and producing inspiring music to mankind, it seems as if your music is focusing mostly on hurt and pain most of the time. It seems (I'm not saying that's the case) as if you lost your focus a little of what you were blessed to do. You are now just making "Music". What about reflecting the work of God, showing how he is there for you, leading the people back to the love of God? I would like to hear you not only producing good music, music that relates to some people out there but also letting them know of the love of God. I have to admit in some ways they are getting it, but not to the aspect of how God wants you to do it. I think you lost your focus and you are now dwelling on the pain of it all.
Let me say, I do understand that we have to come to terms with our pain to get over it. But it needs to also be reflected on how to proceed in doing so. Give the people more direction in your music. Show them that God is there for them if they come back. I liked your album Hero. Some of the music on there showed the people how to get over pain. It showed them how to talk about the pain so they can start to heal, but when I see video's like Imagine Me, I can't help to wonder if you are trying to portray yourself as God himself. For believers of faith, it's kind of conflicting.
I am a Seventh-day Adventist and my religion would not touch some of your music because of how its represented. Granted I understand you want to reach out to the young people, but what about the laws of God and the love of God.
I think you focus too much of yourself and not of the Savior. You forgot but its not too late to use the talent he gave you to praise his name. Praise his name Kirk and not yourself. Remember with God on our side we cannot fail. It is always good to have an inspirational song to hold on to faith and hope but if we forget in this world who is driving us day by day, then we will be lost to this world. I hope that I am making sense. I am not trying to offend anyone that believes and know you are doing good work for those who need it, but also have to remember our main focus and who brought us here. Remember God so loved the world that he GAVE his ONLY begotten son, that whosoever believe in him shall have everlasting life.
Praise his name
