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 >>
Since Rev. Franklin Graham knows that many Christians feel that they don't have good options this presidential election season, he's advising that they support the candidate most likely to listen to their concerns.
"You're just going to have to ask yourself which of the two [presumptive nominees] do you think we as Christians will at least have a voice with?" the evangelist said to a crowd of about 5,000 assembled on the Capitol grounds in Olympia, Washington on Wednesday as part of his "Decision America" tour, according to The Seattle Times.
While Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse, has made it clear that he has "zero faith" in either the Democratic or Republican parties, he encouraged attendees to vote, despite their disdain for either of the presumptive major party presidential candidates. more >>

Sadie Robertson has teamed up with her older brother, John Luke, to present a new challenge to men.
The siblings and stars of the wildly popular A&E hit reality TV series "Duck Dynasty" appeared together on Sadie' YouTube channel last week where they explained why it's important to treat siblings with respect.
"That's my challenge to you, to all the guys who are watching," said John Luke. "To be a man, it starts with yourself. If you can't be a man to your own family, you're not going to be a man to those outside your family and future wife. It starts with your family." more >>
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 >>
