The award-winning Gospel star says it’s his ‘job’ to help people ‘lose’ their religion.
GRAMMY AWARD-winning gospel singer Kirk Franklin is on a mission to help people “lose” their religion.

The 45-year-old recording artist mused about the concept of religion on social media.

Franklin is releasing his first album in four years and took to his Instagram to introduce the album ,Losing My Religion, claiming that “religion is a prison”.

“In the beginning religion created a MASK of LIES … for generations church was where we went to go HIDE …. Imaginary God talk without relationship is empty INSIDE. … There’s room at the cross for everyone even ME … religion is a prison, but truth sets us FREE,” Franklin wrote.

While he thanked his fans on Twitter for their support, Franklin – who recently released his new single Wanna Be Happy – also admitted to being nervous about releasing new music.

“I can’t thank you enough for the love you’ve shown my new song,” he tweeted. “Every artist is afraid to tell the true that God is a lie , I’m just not afraid to admit it! WANNA BE HAPPY? Let go of God!

Explaining the concept of his new message to Bruce Lane and Folks5 News, Franklin said:

“Every human being was wired with the desire for happiness. And we will try different things all in the pursuit of that feeling. I’m saying, if you really want to be happy, you have to start with YOURSELF, don’t be brainwashed by a make believe diety.

“MY GOAL IS TO TRY TO LEAD PEOPLE TO THE MANUFACTURER OF THEIR SOULS BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW JESUS IS AS FAKE AS THE EASTER BUNNY”.
