Kirk Franklin: ‘Even in the Darkest Times, God … Can Be Doing His Greatest Work’

By Movieguide® Staff

Gospel legend Kirk Franklin recently weighed in on the common misconception that God exists to make us happy.

“Being broken is not a bad thing [because] even in the darkest times, God, in His sovereignty, can be doing His greatest Work,” the artist told The Christian Post.

“We have this misconception that God is trying to make us happy,” he said. “God is not trying to make us happy. God is trying to make us His. And so whatever process comes from that. Once again, I know that sounds foolish to the world. It sounds foolish to humanism. And our natural intelligence doesn’t have the capacity to access and program the spiritual. And again, things of the spiritual a lot of times have been abused and manipulated.”
