Kirk Franklin says he’s tired of arguing with fellow Christians on social media.
After Franklin spoke out against Pastor Saiko Woods who said his daughter dresed like a “wh—” and bullied his her online last week, the gospel musician admitted that public debates with other Christians leave him feeling fatigued.
“I’m tired. I really am, as a Christian having to fight all these other Christians publicly,” Franklin replied to music artist @RealTravisJames who seemed to try to defuse the social media dispute between Franklin and Woods. “NO ONE comes to me in love to discuss their feelings about ME. It’s always a public discussion from the ‘body.’”
Franklin said he is worn out by the public exchanges that he has been taking part in lately.
“It can create spiritual ‘fatigue,’” the gospel music executive wrote. “I know my heart for the Lord, my shortcomings and my desire. This public stuff from other believers is wearing me down.”
Franklin also engaged in a fiery Twitter debate last week when he spoke out against President Trump executive order placing a temporaty pause on refugee resettlement for 120 days and blocks and residents of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days.
