We sympathize with the families who are very upset, regarding their family member’s alleged killers being set free. However, we have got to think about God using Governor Barbour to set these prisoners free, regardless of the crime. Governor Barbour can also being remembered for releasing the two African American sisters, 36-year-old Gladys Scott and Jamie Scott, 38-year-old who were allegedly both accused of murder and served 16 years in prison. The only way the sisters were able to be released was for 36-year-old Gladys Scott’s to give her kidney to Jamie, her 38-year-old sister, who requires daily dialysis, which was very thoughtful of the governor. Now, before he leaves office he is just doing one more good deed for four more prisoners whom were accused of murder and serving life sentence, they will enjoy freedom, all because Governor Barbour set them free.
As we mentioned before, Gladys and Jamie Scott were released from prison over a year ago. The sisters were convicted in 1994 of leading two men into an ambush in central Mississippi the year before. Teenagers hit each man in the head with a shotgun and took their wallets – making off with only $11, court records said. Because civil rights advocates fought for their release, Governor Barbour paid attention to their plea. Now, this case involving these four killers being released from prison, we feel possibly Governor Barbour is being led by God. For those of you reading this post, you may not claim to have ever murdered anyone, but in God’s Word, it says hatred in your heart for another human being is the same and God forgave every last person when they repented and then, they were totally set free (I John 3:15). You may have not been incarcerated for hating anybody, but God could not forgive you, unless you forgave them. Therefore, when prisoners are released from prison, it is a spiritual matter and God has a lot to do with Governor Barbour’s decision to give them freedom. When you are truly saved, you can see this scenario and you can easily minister to those in prison. This is the very reason why many churches do not even consider those in prison, especially…Read full article, here.
