Robin Williams Dies of Suspected Suicide

Williams' publicist Mara Buxbaum told The Hollywood Reporter: "Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."

His wife, Susan Schneider, said: "This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions." ...

Dear Sister in the Lord

How sweet of you to remember this poor sinner in your prayers. I am truly grateful to everyone of you that bears me up at the throne of grace. Lord knows I need his grace and mercy every single moment of every single day.

As for posting here, there ain't much that I can post which won't create controversy, because the old faith has been abandoned by the churches and the generations they serve. We live in days of great ignorance, doctrinal and historical.

Now don't get me wrong, I ain't one to shy away from controversy [as if you didn't know ], but it is very tiring and demands all my mental strength, and that's what I struggle with with the condition that I suffer from. But as the Lord gives strength I hope to post as and when I am able.

You can always write personally to me. I'd be only too glad to hear from ya.

Thank you again for your kindness.

Wishing you and yours the Lord's richest blessings.

Hey bro, how are you keeping? Hope you're bearing up. You are often in my prayers, as are your loved ones and the saints on this board that I know.

I pop in when I can to follow some postings, but not as much as I'd like. Commitments prevent this, and time seems to fly quicker with increasing age. Either that or I'm slowing down. Lol

Write if you're inclined bro. Let's keep in touch.

Blessings to you and yours.

I agree, Observer, and consider prayer our most powerful weapon. Unlike some, I also believe that God gave all the knowledge He did so we could take care of ourselves until He comes again. Prayer isn't a cure all when He provided other means for us and I believe this includes Christian based psychiatry, and even meds as a last resort when all else has been ruled out and fails. It's one thing to not understand clinical depression, but another to minimalize it as some sort of a boo hoo, woe is me pity party. True depression leads people towards suicide for good reason...it can be unbearable as it eats away at you from morning until night. I look forward to retiring each night because it's an escape for me...relief. Personally, I can't remember the last time I was excited about something, looked forward to anything, laughed, felt content, or woke up without feelings of hopelessness and despair; wondering how I would get through the day. Each day gets better as it goes on, but feelings of happiness are distant memories that I wish I could feel again. Lurker asked me if the drugs could have something to do with it all and I'm sure they played their part. Anyway, I know you suffer from it and there are people worse off than us, but the point is to never discount or ignore sign

To the dear saints here who suffer from depression, please don't be discouraged by the know it alls who've never experienced it. These 'Job's comforters' have no idea that many of us are called to walk most of the time in darkness which they have never known. Is depression always spiritual, or can it have organic origins? I believe both. In the most severe cases, medical help will definitely be required and is not to he despised. That does not mean we accept psychotherapy, secular or 'Christianised'. The word of God is sufficient and the help and prayers of understanding Christians is an enormous help. Above all, even in the vale of darkness, God is an ever present help. We should never despair, but cast ourselves even more upon the only arm that can help, praying that whatever God's purpose may be in our suffering may be accomplished to his glory and our sanctification, and that God may use us to comfort and build up others in our most precious faith.

May The Lord Jesus pour forth healing balm this Lord's Day upon all who are downcast and cause his face to shine upon all who are truly his, granting us all a glimpse of the glory that awaits and how inconsequential is our lot in life no matter how hard it may appear to us.

I agree that when it comes to therapy, a qualified born again Christian PhD is critical. God and His Word must be the equation to wellness, although there are many other Influencing factors which must be addressed and resolved.
I am also on the Penelope bandwagon in that I fully agree that there are so many other Influencing factors and causes of depression that are so often overlooked. Things like environmental factors and simple thongs like improper nutrition can wreak havoc on the brain. Some more so than others. Depression, unless one can pinpoint a specific reason, is a very difficult malody to get to the bottom of and treat properly. Those who have never experienced major depression just can't comprehend how horrific it really is and how the most mundane things become major chores that take all the mental energy one can muster to accomplish, or even get started on. When someone is suffering from major depression, they become very fragile emotionally and any little thing; any little stressor can send them crashing down in a moment. Tough way to go through life but for me, I know that I would be in much worse shape without God to lean upon, even dead.

In my opinion, a depressive does not need to be given books to read, sermons to listen to, exhortations and all the rest, they need the support of fellow Christians, those who will stick by them during the hard times. They need to be surrounded by joy, so that they know there is a possibility of getting back to some semblance of a sensible life.
Of course it is hard work, but when it is undertaken out of love given by the Holy Ghost, it can be a ministry with real fruit. The Spirit is sometimes called the Paraclete - "one called alongside to help", and when we realise that we can play a part in that with HIM, it is no problem getting alongside someone who needs help and support.
Breathtakingly lovely words John UK, I praise God for your God-breathed inspiration! The grace of The Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit!

To clear up some things for those who are interested( the others can skip over it). I have three sons and one daughter. One is a CRNA, one a welder, one a driver for fed-ex and the daughter was a coach and PE teacher until she became a single mom and health issues forced her to quit and become a science teacher.Her son is a Science teacher and Christian and is engaged to another teacher both being Christians.All are christians except one, not sure of the one who is a welder and is bipolar and we never hear from. I have another grandson and granddaughter just out of school, finding the path and plan God has for their lives.

And how he came to be one, the struggles to get there, the way he decided to do this,the time he became so depressed because of one nurse that was over him at Baptist Hospital where was working as a nurse and she for some reason tried to block it by refusing to give him a recommendation and he couldn't get into school that fall. He came home and gave up that goal for a time but finally got back to the goal, worked at another hospital, got a realy good recommendation from a doctor and others. I could go on and on but just knowing, the many lives he has helped save and the suffering of various illnesses makes me know that it had to be from God. Every good and perfect gift comes from above.Apppreciate your help and encouragement, John.At one point, all I could say was Jesus but He heard and understood and brought me through my pain and suffering.

You are right, John UK, the Holy Spirit is the one that got me through the ordeal and I never went to a secular Phychiatrist only a family doctor. I have never had talk therepy either. If anyone on this forum went to a chtistian group for help with say, cancer or diabetes, and depended on that alone? God has given us every means to heal ourselves, medicine,( a merry heart doeth good like a medicine) doctors, knowledge to know what to do. Luke was a doctor. I don't understand the working of the mind and why I suffer and my unsaved husband does not and God used him to get me through one bout without medicine or a doctor. He kept telling me over and over that I would be better this Spring and I saw that as a sign from God, a whisper from the Holy Spirit. One day, I walked out on my patio and noticed that one of my hanging baskets had apparently dropped some of it's sprigs and had covered the ground with the most beautiful flowers, beside the patio and I stood there in awe at their beauty and knowing that it came from God, one early Spring day. I know that because that had never happened before or again, even though I tried by planting those same flowers. I have always used them in hanging baskets but never had that happen.My son puts people to sleep for surgery and I know how he ca

There is of course 'depression' that is sin, then the downslide to seeking help form secular 'Psychiatry' and therefore the unbiblical definition 'manic depressive' comes into vogue and even worse the dark side of Christian Counselling!

Here are some books at Metropolitan Tabernacle (Spurgeon's Old Church) and look at the blurb from both Dr Ted Williams two books, both worth reading for any who want to help a fellow believer or get to grips with what the Bible teaches about depression:

'Many well-known evangelical authors and churches, however, have turned entirely to the secular remedies and policies in these matters. This book shows what the differences are, including a remarkable review of depression in the Bible, and its relief.'

Are so open with your own experience and pain. It heips others to see that Christians are not immune to suffering but the thing is we get through it and God will use it to encourage others that are suffering and fighting battles in their life. The growing in Christ comes during these dark nights of the soul just as a tree will grow stronger and the roots deeper as they are put through the wind and stormy weather. I am so blessed. God is good, all the time.

Thank you Jessica, for your kind words. I wasn't saying that you think I'm too sensitive by your remark that I would be opening myself up to being hurt by others if I shared my experience with depression and you were right, there were remarks made and it kind of rolls off now, when this happens. I know that they have never experienced an episode of clinical depression. It's more than just a sad mood. You have periods of anxiety attacks that cause you to shake inside and out, Your days are grey and you can't function. I love working crossword puzzles but could not even do that. The only prayer I could pray was, Lord please help me. I had one psalm and 2 Chron.20. that I read over and over. I lost 25 lbs in a matter of weeks because even food held no interest for me. It was one of the worst thing I had to go through in my life. My niece went through the same thing and we talk about it at times. My doctor said that some people are born with low seriton and when we get under too much stress, it eats up what little you have. Well, he convinced me and so to stay well, I take my meds along with my sister and niece and nephew just like a diabetic takes his meds to stay healthy. Not many are as understanding as you are,without going through it yourself.So glad you are on here because you

Jessica, what an inspiration you are, bringing out things which give us insight into our own behaviour that could be a root to some of my problems. You are right, I am senitive to remarks and have been told I am too emotional and I'm working on that and actually being on here has been a great help to me, even when I don't like what's said. Anyway, just wanted to let you know you are an inspiration to those of us who struggle with our own battles, each one different from the other. Will, put you on my prayer list.We all need each other's prayers especially in these times. To Don L, I agree and I have a son that is bipolar and I understand your pain in dealing with that. He was saved at an early age and baptized but got into drugs and left home with a friend that was on meth and cocain. Haven't heard from him in several yrs. Just have to keep praying and trusting God.
Delores, it is very heartbreaking to learn of your son, oh, the sadness and grief this is to a mother' heart!

I didn't say you were too sensitive to remarks, but was rather acknowledging the pain a person can go through when sharing something vulnerable — people can say things which are hurtful and ignorant.

In my experience, you are refreshingly honest!

Oh, By The Way, The Hebrew Judge, SAMSON, Committed Suicide Too When He Avenged Himself & Israel Upon The Philistines (Palestinians Of His Day):

"And Samson Called Unto The LORD, And Said, Oh Lord GOD, Remember Me, I Pray Thee, And Strengthen Me, I Pray Thee, Only This Once, Oh God, That I May Be At Once AVENGED OF THE PHILISTINES FOR MY TWO EYES.

And Samson Took Hold Of The Two Middle Pillars Upon Which The House Stood, And On Which It Was Borne Up, Of The One With His Right Hand, And Of The Other With His Left.

And Samson Said, Let Me Die With The Philistines. And He Bowed Himself With All His Might; And The House Fell Upon The Lords, And Upon All The People That Were Therein. So The Dead Which He Slew At His Death Were More Than He Slew In His Life."-Judges 16:28-30
