An older article from Tex's site. He speaks about Susan being sick.
Our Sister Susan article taken from aboundinglove.org
Those who know Christ in prison have compassion for each other. (a.k.a. thick as thieves) Compassion means "suffering with another". Susan Atkins is a former Manson Family member who is now diagnosed with brain cancer.(I like to call it- her karma) I'm told by a friend that "one leg is gone and she can't even sit up or lift her head." (again karma)
She is imprisoned at CIW where those Christian with her demonstrate compassion. She is a dear sister in the Lord.
There isn't a lot of sympathy for her from the general public.
After serving 40 years in prison for her part in the Manson murders she asked for a compassionate release, but was denied. (Like when Sharon asked Susan for compassion for herself and her baby, and Susan denied her.) The doctor's only give her 6 months to live.(she managed to cling on a much longer) She is one of those inmates, who has shown compassion to many undeserving women during her prison stay. It is her time to reap compassion and prayer's from us who know God's love.
My prayers go out to Susan who came to Christ in 1974.
Chaplin Ray Hoekstra came to see me in 1975, telling me of her salvation and how she had written to Bruce Davis who came to Christ as a result. ( so if Susan never wrote to Bruce he would still be a heathen?) Chaplin Ray wanted me to receive Christ, which I did a few months later in 1975. The testimonies he shared and the love of God working through many others opened my heart to the Lord.
Those who do not hold to the testimony of Jesus Christ
believe that one day justice will be served when murders like Susan, Bruce and myself meet the Lord. To the contrary justice was served when Jesus took our sins upon Himself on Calvary's cross. Our sins were placed upon Him in exchange for eternal life, because of God's mercy upon the sinner.
"God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God' site by the blood of Christ, He will certainly save us from God's judgement." ( if that is what makes you feel better Tex, keep telling yourself that).
