Family of Man Murdered on Facebook Live Makes Incredible Matthew 5:44 Statement

The family of a man murdered on Facebook Live put their faith into action as they announced their forgiveness of accused killer Steve Stephens.

"The thing that I would take away the most from my father is he taught us about God," Tonya Godwin Baines told Anderson Cooper. "How to fear God. How to love God. And how to forgive. Each one of us forgives the killer. The murderer." 

Baines is the daughter of Robert Godwin Sr. Together with her siblings, she announced how and why they've chosen to forgive Stephens.

"I honestly can say right now that I hold no animosity in my heart against this man. Because I know that he's a sick individual. I know that because of his sickness, whatever evil overtook him that caused him to do this to my dad, it's not him. It wouldn't be something he would typically do, and I promise you, I could not do that, if I did not know God," Debbie Godwin said. 

"If I didn't know Him as my God and my Savior, I could not forgive that man. And I feel no animosity against him at all. Actually, I feel sadness for him. I do."
