Kirk Franklin's Testimony & Rev. Haggard
I rarely pick up those magazines you see at the supermarket. But, today I have to admit the cover of Gospel Music's Kirk Franklin and wife, Tammy caught my attention.
With all I have to do this evening, I have little time to be reading magazines. But, this particular article was interesting.
It tells a lot about the couple struggles since Franklin revealed his own struggles with pornography.
The story comes out as the nation deals with yet another sex scandal. I think the media's coverage of The Rev. Ted Haggard, who up until this week was senior pastor of the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, has been completely overboard.
It's apparent that Rev. Haggard had some struggles just like most men.
Kirk Franklin's story and Rev. Haggard's story reflect the fact that in the Body of Christ, even high-profile men make mistakes.
For now, the best thing Christians can do is pray for both of these men and their families.
The important thing to remember is God forgives and Kirk Franklin has a testimony to tell. I'm sure Rev. Haggard will have one to tell soon as well.
