Evangelical End Times pastor Jonathan Shuttlesworth told his congregation this week that Robin Williams committed suicide because the actor did not have Jesus living in his heart.
During this Tuesday episode of his Revival Today broadcast, Shuttlesworth explained that LGBT people could only repress their sexuality with the help of God.
“I had a homosexual write me on Twitter, I guess he watched me preach online, and he said, ‘I don’t think it’s fair that you preach that because I’m a homosexual and I’ve tried to not live like that,'” the pastor recalled. “I said, you don’t get free by trying… You don’t try to live better, you give God your sinful wicked life.”
“Somebody bound in homosexuality, that’s a wicked spirit!” he shouted. “You can’t fight it by willpower! It takes the fire of the Holy Ghost, the same thing that came on me that burned out my speech impediment and straighten my legs.”
Pointing to the Gospel According to Mark, Shuttlesworth said that it did not “profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul in the process.”
“When you see Robin Williams hang himself, that lets you know that no matter how much success you have, it is not a substitute for Jesus living in your heart,” Shuttlesworth opined. “When you see rich people that can’t keep their lives together — you must have Jesus living in your heart.”
