Donnie McClurkin is urging people to forgive people in ministry who have made public mistakes.

McClurkin, the 54-year-old pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, N.Y., blesses people with his singing voice away from the pulpit. While he has been a leading voice in gospel music with a career that spans almost 20 years, he also admits to making his fair share of mistakes.

“Pls…lets show mercy to those who may have simply made a mistake. Let’s not vilify them & their entire ministry..,” McClurkin tweeted. “Lets pray, 4give & restore. If I count MY failures & every time I’VE faltered/they’d be much too much 2mention/I could never count them all~! HE forgave, WE forgive~!” (SIC)

He went on to offer another perspective on the matter, questioning how people would react if they made a public mistake.

“What if you made a public mistake? would u want condemnation & criticism or consideration & covering,” McClurkin questioned on Twitter. “Whichever you’d want done, DO~! simple.”
