November 27, 2016 – Kirk Franklin Blasts Mother Of School Bus Driver Who Killed 5 Students In Tennessee For Saying Accident Was God’s Will 

Gospel star Kirk Franklin, has slammed the mother of the Chattanooga school bus driver charged with reckless endangerment in connection with Monday’s deadly school bus crash that killed 5 students from Woodmore Elementary after she said the accident was “God’s will”.

The Grammy Award – winning artist shared his thoughts on the tragic event in a series of tweets on Tuesday. After asking his 1.14 million followers to pray for the victims and their families, Franklin said that as a Christian, he believes it’s important to “speak out when God’s heart is misrepresented in the society.”

“It was extremely insensitive for the mother of the bus driver who killed 5 children to say ‘it was god’s will’ for it to happen,” he tweeted .

“In tragedy we see in God’s word to mourn with those who mourn, not have a theological conversation. Biblical illiteracy is real…I hurt today for those parents…and so should she.”

Franklin’s comments were made after Gwenevere Cook, the mother of the 24-yearold bus driver, Johnthony Walker, released a statement regarding the tragic incident, in which the bus swerved off the right side of the road before smacking into an elevated driveway and mailbox.

The bus then careened to the left and hit a utility pole, ending up on its side against a tree. Three of the students who died were in the fourth grade, and the other children who were killed were in kindergarten and first grade.

“A word of comfort to whom it may concern. I’m being the mother of Johnthony Walker would love to say, my heart of love is going out for all that was in harm’s way of God’s will.

  1. EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE been saying! People keep misrepresenting God. It is a very unhealthy religion to think that God, Who is full of love, would ever will misfortunes to befall His handmade. That something happened does not make it God’s will, even though God has the power to stop it.

    WHEN GOD CREATED man and gave him freedom of choice, He was aware that He was relinquishing a measure of His sovereignty, and placing responsibility upon man. Every choice we make has several outcomes, and we are responsible for them. If God should, by virtue of His omnipotence, interfere on every choice we make as individuals, and the outcomes of those choices, He would defeat the purpose for which He had given man freedom in the first place. And by that, He would not manifest power, but weakness; for power is the ability to fulfill purpose. Anything that leads to a defeat of purpose is weakness.

    SO LET Christians be well-guided in their utterances!

  2. YOU CAN BLAST THE MOTHER ALL YOU WANT SIR, I’M SURE SHE MOURN AND FELT SORRY FOR THE INCIDENT..HOWEVER, HER STATEMENT IS ACCURATE AS A CHRISTIAN..”IT WAS GOD’S WILL”
    MR FRANKLIN SUGGESTED WE SHOULD NOT BE HAVING A THEOLOGICAL CONVERSATION
    YET, HE ENGAGED THE MOTHER BY CLAIMIING SHE MISREPRESENT GOD AND SHE WAS A BIBLICAL ILLITERATE..MR FRANKLIN WAS WRONG ON BOTH ENDS.. THE BIBLE CLAIMS THAT GOD IS ALL KNOWING AND NOTHING HAPPENED WITHOUT HIS KNOWLEDGE AND WE ARE TO BELIEVE THAT THING HAPPENED FOR A REASON..1 SAMUEL 2:6,7;ROMANS 5:3-8;JONH 9:1-41; JAMES1:2-3 ISAIAH 57:1
    WHAT THE LADY SAID MIGHT BE INSENSITIVE BUT IT’S NOT INACCURATE, EXPECIALLY TO A BELIEVER LIKE MR FRANKLIN…
    IT WAS A TRAGEDY FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED….I AM VERY SORRY FOR THE LOST ONES..

    • Your statement make so much sense to me…..that woman must be a believer,she never found joy with the tragedy but she truly believes in God… All things happens for good for those who put their trust in God for HIS own purpose.

      To me,for one to be a Christian,the greatest priority is to accept JESUS as personal savior and the freedom of choice is about choosing HIM,God or the Satan.

  3. SHOULD WE SAY THAT,ALL THE PEOPLE KILLED BY SHEKAMU BOKO HARAM WAS THE WILL OF GOD?,

    OR SHOULD WE ALSO SAY ;;ISIS ;;CUTTING PEOPLE HEADS WAS ALSO WILL OF GOD ?,

    AND ALL THE PEADOPHILIAN BISHOPS AND RITUALIST PASTORS ARE ALSO WILL OF GOD ?.

    MAY I KNOW IF SOMEONE HAVE SEEN GOD FACE TO FACE BEFORE?

    OH YES, I HAVE SEEN GOD FACE TO FACE ,

    YESTERDAY HE USED HIS SMARTPHONE TO TELL ME THAT, THEY SHOULD NOT JAIL THE DRIVER WHO KILLED FIVE CHILDREN . BECAUSE HE AUTHORISED THE DRIVER TO KILL THE CHILDREN.

    GOD ALSO USED HIS SMARTPHONE TO TELL ME THAT I SHOULD FORGIVE ,,ISIS ,, AND HAVE A DINNER /BREAKFAST WITH SHEKAMU.

    BECAUSE IT IS ALSO WILL OF GOD THAT MADE SHEKAMU TO KILL MILLIONS OF PEOPLE . ,, IT WAS GODS WILL , YES IT IS , BECAUSE WE ARE SO CALLED KRISTY.

    OH YESSSSSSSSSSS GOD WILL,

    MAY I KNOW WHY MAKING FOOL OF OURSELVES WHEN THINGS GO WRONG, OR WHEN WE DO WRONG. WE PUT BLAME ON GOD. WHY ?

    GOD , GOD,
    OH, GOD SAY WE SHOULD GIVE TEN PERCENT OF YOUR WAGES TO HIM , IF YOU DO NOT PAY YOUR PERCENT , GOD WOULD NOT HEAR YOUR PRAYER.
    THIS IS A VERY BIG INSULT TO WHO WE CALLED GOD, THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.

    , MAY I KNOW IF GOD WANT TO USE YOUR TITTIES TO BUY GANJA, OR OGORO

    OR TROUSER MADE BY DOY AND GABBANA. ALL THOSE SUPERDUPER WHO STOLE NIGERIAN MONEY ARE ALSO WILL OF GOD.

    MAY I KNOW WHY YOU MADE GOD LOOK LIKE VAMPIRE AND A BEGGAR? I THINK WE SHOULD STOP PUTTING BLAME ON GOD FOR ALL OUR WRONG DOING,

    A LOT OF DRIVERS ARE DRUGGY AND DRUNKARD WHO SLEPT OFF WHILE DRIVING, AND END UP KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE.

    GOD CREATED EVERYTHING , EXCEPT WHAT YOU HAVE CREATED YOURSELF , GOD IS NOT THE ONE THAT GAVE YOU BEAR TO DRINK AND DRIVE AND KILL CHILDREN, SO IT IS YOUR FAULT .

    IT IS NOT WILL OF GODS , BECAUSE THE DRIVER WAS A DRUBKARD AND DRUGGY.
