Actor and comedian Robin Williams‚Äô 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.
‚ÄúBoth our mothers had been Christian Scientists,‚ÄĚ Baehr told WND. ‚ÄúHis father was a nominal Episcopalian and mine was unchurched.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI shared with him the concrete reality of Jesus and how my life was changed,‚ÄĚ Baehr said, noting that when he came to Christ, his own drug abuse stopped immediately. The same happened to Baehr‚Äôs father upon his conversion late in life.
