Gospel icon Kirk Franklin visited popular syndicated radio show “The Breakfast Club,” where he discussed his new album and his position on the hot button issues of homosexuality and abortion.
“All Scripture is God-breathed … but what we have to understand also is that the Canon of Scripture still is coming from a place of a loving God,” Franklin said on the program this week. “God is not built to hate gay people. The Bible is not a manual on how to hate gay people.
“And so if we continue to keep isolating these individual things and make that the premise of what God is and who God is we are missing the [point] … that there is room at the cross for all of us. And all of us got something and to make your something bigger than my something is to miss how big the love and grace of God is.”
He added, “God is a God of truth, I believe that God’s love is the truth. There’s no truth without love and love can’t exist without truth.”
