Dr. Ted Baehr, founder of Movieguide, spent time with the late Robin Williams on press junkets for movies—and he shared the gospel of Jesus Christ with the comedian who committed suicide.
“Once, Dr. Baehr shared Jesus Christ with Robin because they both grew up with a few similar parental beliefs,” Movieguide reports. “Robin had, at one point, accepted Jesus Christ in one of the recovery programs, but he was always searching and never quite finding.”
Earlier this week, Charisma News ran a piece called “Did Robin Williams Know Jesus Christ?” In it, Bryan Fischer wrote:
“The one thing we do not know is whether Robin Williams did business with God in his dying moments. While his mother was a Christian Scientist (a counterfeit form of religion that is neither Christian nor scientific), his father was an Episcopalian, so it is certainly possible that Williams heard the gospel in his formative years and may have remembered it all his life.”
Right now, we can only speculate and hope about Williams’ salvation. But we can share the gospel with others before it’s too late.
