Despite enduring a violent birthday last Friday when he watched his wife snap and fatally gun down their two daughters at their Texas home, then watch police kill his wife to end her murderous rampage, Jason Sheats, 45, says he is drawing strength from Jesus and his family.
On Wednesday afternoon after telling local police that he would not be speaking publicly about the death of his wife, Christy Sheats, 42, and his two daughters, Taylor, 22, and Madison, 17, Jason posted Philippians 4:13 to his Facebook page.
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me," the Scripture says. more >>
Jennifer Mayers, a blogger who claims to be a Christian mother from Louisiana, has drawn the ire of the Internet for claiming that Christy Sheats, 42, the Texas mother who gunned down her two daughters at home last Friday, shot them dead because she found out they were sleeping with "black boys."
"A devout Republican and gun rights advocate, she (Christy) no doubt discovered that both of her daughters had been promiscuous and were sleeping with black boys and she took it upon herself to put an end to that cycle. She was brave enough to stand up and say ENOUGH! Not in MY house! And she should be lauded," wrote Mayers in a blog post Monday, which has since gone viral attracting nearly 2,000 responses mostly denouncing her as a Christian.
"Race mixing is not only an ungodly thing, it causes such confusion and humiliation. Not only for the children born of this sin, but for the grandparents who would have to carry this burden. Mrs. Sheats was the picture of elegance and I know she would not want to have to explain to her friends why she was carrying around a yellow mixed baby that her promiscuous daughters had created," Mayers continued. more >>
The Fourth of July is just around the corner, and people in the United States can't wait for this special day.
A lot of celebrations all around the country are expected to happen, and one of the highlights will be in the Houston area where fireworks displays and other activities have been planned out to celebrate this historic moment when the United States claimed its independence.
The murderous meltdown of troubled Christian mom Christy Sheats, who shot her two daughters to death and was later killed by police outside her Texas home last Friday, might have been triggered by her husband, Jason Sheats, telling her he wanted a divorce.
Jason Sheats felt his marriage to Christy Sheats had been spiraling downward since 2012, and on that Friday, his birthday, he told his wife he wanted a divorce, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said, according to People magazine.
Nehls said Jason told investigators that he and his wife had been texting Friday when he was out. When he returned home that day he told her in their backyard that he wanted a divorce. more >>
In his first candid interview about the bone-breaking assault on his wife in 2014, to which he pleaded guilty and was sentenced in March, popular gospel singer James Fortune recently confessed, "I was an abuser."
"I am basically stretching out and saying, you know what, I was a perpetrator of domestic violence. I was an abuser in more ways than one. But I believe that is how God is healing me," Fortune told CBN News' Efrem Graham in an interview published Tuesday.
"I was a perpetrator of domestic violence. I was an abuser. I thought domestic violence was just if you hit your wife, you slap your wife. But I found out there are 18 forms of abuse and only one of them is physical," he explained. more >>
In repeated posts on Facebook, Christy Sheats, who described herself as a conservative Baptist, expressed her love for her daughters, Taylor and Madison, sometimes while quoting Scripture. She was nothing like the woman who gunned them down last Friday as they begged for their lives.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17. Today I am thankful for my two perfect gifts! They are very best friends — they make me so very proud to be their mother," wrote Christy of her two daughters, on her Facebook page in November 2014.
Last Friday as her husband, Jason, celebrated his 45th birthday in the couple's Texas home, Christy snapped and killed the daughters she loved so much to punish her husband, said Madison Davey, a close family friend, in an interview with local news station ABC 13. Christy was later shot dead by police. more >>
