Forgiveness shown to “Facebook Killer” Steve Stephens

The children of Robert Godwin- the man who was killed by Steve Stephens- has publicly forgiven his dads murderer. 

 

Godwin’s daughter said “I forgive you and love you, but most importantly, God loves you. God can heal your mind and save your soul.” Steve Stephens was a religious man according to his mum, and may have taken comfort in this show of compassion.  Robert Goodwin Jr also forgave the killer, saying “Steve, I forgive you… I’m not happy what you did, but I forgive you.”

In a time of great grief for the family of Robert Goodwin, it is inspiring to see their faith- in humanity and religious- shining through.
