In Exodus 20:13, it says 'Thou Shall Not Kill', which is a part of The Ten Commandments. It seems like Barbara Scott thought the Word of God was irrelevant and took her husbands life for her own selfish reasons. Although, her husband, Benny was 78-years-old, Barbara Scott was not a very young woman herself and should not have had selfish thoughts to get her husband out of her life by shooting him in the back of the head and burying him so no one, not even her daughter would know what happened to him.
Barbara Scott is like a lot of people whom have a demon of murder buried inside of them for many years. Many people will spend their lives with someone and become miserable, because either their spouse are disabled, near death or just are not active in life. God does not like anyone to verbally, emotionally or physically abuse anyone because they are tired of them. It is a great possibility before this woman killed her husband, she was very verbally and physically abusive toward him, but nobody knew about it. It happens all the time, people just do not talk about. You know, for example, we hear of overweight people enduring insults from their family, friends and co-workers, but to discuss matters like this case of a spouse murdering their spouse and possibly giving them a slow death before doing so, is something we never hear much about. It is time for married couples, whether they be elderly, middle age or young to re-evaluate their lives when it comes to feeling miserable being in the same household with someone they are tired of. God wants us all to be happy and if you cannot keep your wedding vows to stick by someone until they die, be honest and release them.
No matter how old or how young, God gives each and everyone of us the ability to trust him for a better life. If ever you feel threatened, it would be wise to start praying and finding someone to share your feelings with. Admit to someone you trust that your spouse is so abusive, they may eventually try to kill you. In this case of Benny Scott, he may have been very sick and frail, but God gives us a mind to pray and cry out to Him when we feel our lives being threatened. Never think, you are too weak to seek help to avoid your life ending in murder, all because your spouse is tired of taking care of you.
May Benny Scott rest in peace and we pray his wife, Barbara repents and gives her soul to Jesus Christ while she spends time in prison.
