A Southern California megachurch pastor is being reported dead from suicide, despite having dedicating much of his life to mental health advocacy.
Jarrid Wilson, co-founder of the Christian suicide prevention group “Anthem of Hope,” had tweeted a message about suicide just hours before taking his own life, writing:
“Loving Jesus doesn’t always cure suicidal thoughts. But that doesn’t mean Jesus doesn’t offer us companionship and comfort. He ALWAYS does that.”
Wilson, who preached at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, took his life during Suicide Awareness month, for which there’s great irony. Wilson himself apparently struggled with depression and anxiety, and had made it part of his life’s mission to help others with similar struggles.
But he sadly lost the fight, leaving being a wife and two sons, much to the shock of the evangelical Christian community who knew of Wilson, or even knew him personally.
“At a time like this, there are just no words,” Pastor Laurie said in a statement following the news. “There is a time to mourn. This is certainly that time.”
According to Laurie, Wilson “loved the Lord and had a servant’s heart,” despite deciding to end his life and abandon his family.
“He was vibrant, positive, and was always serving and helping others … He wanted to especially help those who were dealing with suicidal thoughts,” Laurie added.
Wilson’s wife, Julianne, also took to social media the day after his death was reported to laud her now-deceased mate as a “loving, giving, kind-hearted, encouraging, handsome, hilarious, give the shirt off his back husband,” adding that “[s]uicide doesn’t get the last word.”
She went on to offer loving words about Jarrid’s dedication to helping people with mental illness, adding that she intends to continue his “legacy of love” until her “last breath.”

Wilson’s untimely death brings up some very serious questions about the state of modern society. It would seem as though an increasing number of people are succumbing to the insanity coming from the likes of CNN, which continuously spreads the type of fake news that’s contributing to mass insanity.
In no way is this meant to politicize this latest tragedy, but it certainly raises some serious questions about what all of this psychological warfare coming from the television and internet is doing to people’s psyches.
While we will probably never know why Wilson decided to do what he did, what we do know is that the endless stream of hate and division being spread by the mainstream media certainly isn’t helping things any.
The same is true for all of the anti-white, anti-male propaganda coming from the media, which certainly isn’t doing people like Wilson any favors. In fact, the media’s hate-filled rhetoric is creating a debased culture in which white men are being made to feel as though they’re inherently evil and worthless simply because of their skin color and gender.
It’s a sick state of affairs that’s only going to get worse, so long as the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, which was signed into law by Barack Obama, remains on the books.
This law, in case you missed our earlier article about it, basically allows the federal government to create propaganda that’s then peddled to the masses as “news” – which is exactly what the Nazis did during World War II, it’s important to note.
Wilson, by the way, is the author of four books, including Jesus Swagger and Love Is Oxygen. He also contributed to Fox News by writing three opinion pieces for its Faith section.
