Movie Review: "Karla Faye Tucker Forevermore"

Karla Faye Tucker was an American woman that killed two people with a pickaxe during a burglary and was sentenced to death by lethal injection.


Many people today would say Karla Faye Tucker deserved death by lethal injection based on a true story. However, after watching this true story of how God changed her life, I feel her transformation should have given her a second chance. Unfortunately, she could not witness to others personally about God's forgiveness after the execution, but her story will speak for itself.


On February 3rd, 1998, the state of Texas put Karla Faye Tucker to death. She was the first woman to be executed in the united states since Velma Barfield in 1984 in North Carolina and the first in Texas since Chipita Rodriguez in 1863. Karla Faye Tucker was in prison for fourteen years. Yet, before her death, something miraculous happened. Ron, the brother of one of Karla's murder victims, wanted justice for his sister's death. He later became an advocate against the death penalty after he witnessed her Christian transformation about God's forgiveness.


Because of some powerful interventions, Ron became a close friend to Karla Faye Tucker as he came to forgive and love her for the person she became. This part of the story restored my faith in how God can take such a criminal act and use it for the benefit of humanity.


I was hoping throughout this true story that she would not have to die by lethal injection. I thought about how she killed brutally; at first, justice was about how the judge sentenced her. However, watching Karla Faye Tucker's story and her planned execution changed my viewpoint. I saw how many people gathered, hoping she would be saved from death by lethal injection.


Honestly, I did not watch the first half of the true story of Karla Faye Tucker's brutal act about how she killed two people. However, I managed to watch the second half to the very end. I find myself desiring to become more forgiving of all humanity. I believe we all fall short of the glory of God. One sin to God is the same as another God is no perspective of persons.


Karla Faye Tucker married her prison minister, Dana Lane Brown, in 1995. The ceremony took place inside the prison. She became a Christian in October 1983.

I believe in paying for crimes like this story details and many other criminal acts that leave the persecutors in prison. However, I now understand how if a convicted murderer has proved without a doubt he has transformed; the sentencing should be well thought through. By sharing testimonies daily of how God changes lives, many in prison could change theirs.


God also talks in the Bible about how we should visit the prisons and teach them about forgiveness and the word of the Lord. Click the link below to read about ten Bible passages on prison ministry.

After watching the true story of Karla Faye Tucker, my faith is strengthened. I feel all people should have people fighting for them to be better people and learn about the God that created them and their plan for the rest of their lives. If those who have to spend the rest of their lives in prison can witness how God forgives his people who asked for it, people can feel they have a purpose in life, even behind bars.


Just think, if people behind bars can witness to others, how much more can people serve the Lord, not behind bars? The following link is a video where Karla Faye Tucker talks to people about her brutal crime and how she felt while doing the crime and after. Listen to her story and remember only God can judge.

I hope this article about Karla Faye Tucker's life will inspire many to learn more about God's forgiveness. And about encouraging others that God is a great God and will always have his arms open to all that call upon him.

God bless all that read this article that love for our fellow man will grow stronger daily.


Everyone has a right to believe their way about criminal acts of this nature; however, pray before judging, and pray compassion can lead us in the right direction.
