A Virginia youth pastor has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder. Christopher Gattis, 58, stands accused of shooting his wife Jeanett, 58, her daughter Candis Kunze, 30, and Kunze’s boyfriend Andrew Buthorn, 36.
The murder rate in the United States has risen by more than 22 percent in the last two years, according to a recent article at the New York Times. While such violence troubles a watching world, Christians have no reason to be bewildered.
The daughter of the elderly man whose murder was recorded in a Facebook live video has made news by forgiving her father’s murderer and says that through her testimony of forgiveness, people are coming to faith.
