Actor and comedian Robin Williamsâ struggle with substance abuse and depression is no longer a secret, and now neither is a report of his one-time acceptance of Jesus Christ.
Movieguide Founder and Chairman of the Christian Film and Television Commission Dr. Ted Baehr met with Williams on several occasions at press junkets, and the two discovered they both had grown up with parents who shared similar beliefs, reported Movieguide.
âBoth our mothers had been Christian Scientists,â Baehr told WND. âHis father was a nominal Episcopalian and mine was unchurched.â
âI shared with him the concrete reality of Jesus and how my life was changed,â Baehr said, noting that when he came to Christ, his own drug abuse stopped immediately. The same happened to Baehrâs father upon his conversion late in life.
