UPDATE: Williams released this video statement to E! News saying she apologizes for words "that hurt the LGBT community."


Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is spreading God's word in an old church video that recently surfaced online.

In a recording of her church sermon that was uploaded to YouTube back in August 2010, Williams passionately speaks to a congregation about saving non-believers, specifically gays and lesbians.

"Don't let the devil tell you you're not worthy of God's blessings, he wants to use you no matter what," the reality star says. "That's why we Christians are supposed to be telling the hooker on the street, the drug dealer, the person who in the hospital who try and commit suicide, the gays, the lesbians—we're supposed to try and save them and tell them, ‘You are worthy!'"

Williams goes on to preach about the devil's temptations away from salvation and the power of hope. "So the devil can put a plan of despair in your mind, then you no longer have what? Hope: the very essential thing that makes us Christians in the first place," she says. "The loss of hope, the loss of hope, means we will never have God's promise of eternal life. And I ain't gonna let nobody get in the way of my eternal life."

Williams' Christian words of wisdom come just a few weeks after the explosive Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion episode in which she brawled with costar Kenya Moore. After the shocking TV scuffle, Williams was subsequently banned from filming the rest of the reunion special.

After the fight aired, a source told E! News that it's "highly doubtful" that both Williams and Moore will both return for another season.
