Israel Folau clearly isn’t going to back down on his beliefs, and his right to share them.

The controversial Australian rugby star ​has tweeted a YouTube video link from late American evangelist David Wilkerson.

“With great love I wanted to share this video in the hope that people watch it and think about it,” Folau wrote on his Twitter account.

“Jesus is coming back soon and he wants us to turn to him through repentance and baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38) please don’t harden your heart.”

Wilkerson’s 11-minute sermon is entitled “It’s time to get right with God” and it includes a number of references to homosexuality.

​Folau met with Rugby Australia last month after replying to an Instagram post, writing that gay people would end up in “HELL” unless they “repented on their sins”.

The Waratahs back wasn’t sanctioned by the organisation, despite him hitting out at boss Raelene Castle.
