Pastor Jeremiah Steepek transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning.

He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service, only 3 people out of the 7-10,000 people said hello to him.

He asked people for change to buy food no one in the church gave him change..........

The point is to slam Christianity.

The point is that even in church it is hard to find a true christian .

Also, Jesus was pretty much a socialist .. Come to terms with that.

But the story wasn't even true, so how can it make a point or prove anything?

We have a church on every corner and we have the least amount of Christians per capita than any town in the bible belt.

We have had all sorts of diversity at out local Church and as far as I can tell they were all welcomed and treated well. Some were given food, clothing and even pharmacy items. Prayed with them.
Christianity has been under attack from the Liberal Media and Homosexuals, who do not like what God's word says. Ever notice how the Network News rarely gives any Christian news unless it is something negative? We are founded as a Christian Nation. 95% of the Founding Fathers were worshiping Christians. Every School had Bibles and most Christian Churches were Schools during the week. Now the mainstream media tries to keep saying we were secular.

Yes, we have a lot of churches that are FULL on Sundays.
That should speak for itself, shouldn't it?

Story is false, but remember that God helps those who helps themselves. As Christians, we aren't obligated to give to questionable individuals.

The book of John tells the story of a man, an outsider... a blind outsider. The blind man bumped into Jesus, found his blindness ruined by Jesus, and became the scandal to religious leaders of his day. His miraculous encounter with Jesus is a model for all of us who are trying to live spiritual lives.

Invite the Liberal Media and Homosexuals to follow Jesus. It is not a new thing. According to the Kingdom Monitors and the Condemners since day one "Jesus did God" all wrong by letting just anyone into the Kingdom...

Sounds like a religious pity party to me when Christians cry about how every one is against the Christians. Maybe if you would look at the root meaning of Christians. It was first a derogatory term meaning little christ.

What makes religious church flakes ferocious was Jesus' "irresponsible" habit of throwing open the doors of his love to the Homosexuals, drunks, drug addicts and other misfits which as I understand it, are the riffraff the kingdom of God is supposed to include. Hell, if we were all perfect Christians, we wouldn't need a Savior!

I haven't attended a lot of different churches, but my church doesn't exclude anyone. Everyone is welcomed and treated like family, no matter what their circumstances are. It's hard for me to believe that there are very many churches out there that would go against the Word of God and exclude people and mistreat people.

It may be hard for you to believe because you fit the proper mold.Try being anyone outside the sanctioned mold for a week and see how you get treated. According to the story Jesus would have been considered a "hippy" or "freak" of his day. Most certainly did not fit into the social norm.

I wonder what kind of drugs they would try to put Jesus on if he showed up today.
