Pat Robertson Blames 'God Of The Heathen' For Robin Williams' Suicide

Posted: Updated:

Pat Robertson thinks he knows what could've saved Robin Williams: More Jesus.

On his show "The 700 Club" on ABC Family Wednesday, Robertson warned viewers of the consequences of chasing "gods" such as fame and money:

“You see these very popular people in the media who commit suicide like Robin Williams recently and you say, 'What is the deal with him? What happened?' You find people who are at the top of the game in music and they're strung out on drugs. What happened? What was their God?

You see, the god of the heathen are idols, and everything that you seek in life can ruin you unless that something and somebody is God himself.

He can fill your every need, and he won't disappoint you and you won't want to commit suicide after you have come to him."

Williams killed himself at his home near San Francisco on Aug. 11 at the age of 63. He had been battling severe depression and had recently spent time in rehab.

His wife, Susan Schneider, later released a statement saying the actor's "sobriety was intact" at the time of his death and that he had been struggling with the early stages of Parkinson's disease.
