Former NFL running back Herschel Walker shared his thoughts on Twitter again.

On Thursday, Walker said he was reading the Bible and he quoted a verse from the book of Matthew about forgiveness.

“I was reading the greatest book ever written, the Bible, and I read ‘But if you do not forgive others, your Father will not forgive your trespasses.’ – Matthew 6:15,” Walker wrote.

Walker added: “Why do we penalize people for what their ancestors did? Forgiveness does not mean you get anything in return.

Walker, who played 12 years in the NFL, recently made headlines by sharing his views on the social media site. Recently, he offered to work with airlines to send people who want to defund the police to countries that don’t have them.

“I have an idea… For all those people who don’t want police, I’d like to meet with American Airlines, Delta and Southwest and make a deal to fly them to countries that don’t have police. I want them to be happy!” Walker wrote.

Walker, a known Trump supporter, also criticized the media for encouraging racial divide in the country, and he said those who damaged property and looted during nationwide protests were “criminals.” At the time, Walker suggested that “peaceful protest must take place from 9 to 5.”

“That’s enough,” Walker said. “It’s time for us to come together.”
