Rhema Bible School instructs their ministers to tip above the 10% to waiters and waitresses and even suggest to slip them a hundred dollar bill. I tithe above the 10% level and give cheerfully to others - I guess this is what happens when you really get Jesus on the inside of you - YOU JUST WANT TO LOVE OTHERS BESIDES YOURSELF.

Truth in the Word Ministries State of Missouri business number 200921290385 filed with the Secretary of State on July 31, 2009 listing Alois bell, 5864 Plymouth, Saint Louis, MO as 100% owner of the business. So she tithes 10% of her earnings to a business she owns 100% of the shares. Wow!!!!! I call bullshi:$:): on being a "pastor" as well. Bet she used her free Obama phone to call Applebee's and complain... While standing in the grocery store swiping her EBT card. Sick and tired of the self centered entitlement of people especially believing you are better than someone and owed something because you are a "pastor"

I am flabbergasted by this. The Lord I love has been shamed. There is no excuse for Bells actions at all.

Absolute shame on that pastor. She needs to study 1 Corinthians 13! No true christian would treat a waitress that way. God asks for ten percent of our increase and also asks that we bless others! Not be stingy and prideful. It is people like this that give Christians a bad rap. Unbelievable.

2. Chelsea Welch, for allowing the SIGNATURE in the photo to be seen.Poor judgement.If she had cropped the pic with just the "comment" showing - no harm done and point made.
3. Applebee's ,for overreacting and firing Chelsea Welch.
In this case ,cooler head need to prevail.
All three come together -Bell and Welch apologize to each other and Applebee's reinstates Welchs' job and makes a small donation to Bell's ministry
Are you serious? A small donation to her ministry? Her ministry should make a donation to Welch for causing her this grief and time out of work!

How disgusting that a Pastor would cause such trouble. You were not satisfied until you had the poor Waitress fired. Now rest your weary head and try to sleep as this former Waitress TRIES to find another job to pay her rent, Etc.
You are a despicable Pastor.
I will soon be 72 and have NEVER heard of any Clergy doing anything remotely like this in all my years.

The Pastor OWNS the business of "Truth in The World Deliverance Ministries Church " ??????????
I have NEVER heard of a Pastor owning her Church as a Business...how appalling and to think she tithes 10% to herself !!!!!! She owes that 10% and much more to the Waitress she caused to be fired.
I would not enter the door of that Apple Bees.Hope the Manager/assistant Managers fall flat on their faces.

Most black people don't tip.
Most people who claim to be Christian don't show it.
Most customers need training in how to treat service staff.
Most of the people reading this aren't surprised by the above, based on all the comments left here.
Shame on Applebees!
Shame on Pastor Bell.
Shame on the Truth in the World Deliverance Ministries church if they continue Pastor Bell's employment.

This is outrageous. This poor waitress was working her butt off for less than minimum wage and tips only to get ripped off and fired by a so called spiritual leader/teacher of God. I would not sit in front of her as a parishioner while she spewed her hypocritical sermons that she obviously doesn’t live by herself. If she was not removed, I would remove myself. She has the audacity to say her reputation has been hurt, she is supposed to represent God, she should be worried about how she has hurt him and his name along with those who are sincerely trying to follow the teaching of Christ….after all that’s what being Christian means….Christ like. I cannot imagine Christ would be so callous and cold toward someone working and barely getting by on the wage and tipping helps make up the difference. She is a disgrace to humanity and Christianity.

The worst thing is..... Applebees fired the waitress...
I can only imagine how hard this single-mom,making about $4.35 an hour worked to take care of "20" church members. Can you imagine braking down 20 seperate meals? They knew this when the were seated. Then this trashy acting pastor has the nerve to use "gods" name in vain, trying to insult her. How dare you..And I will never eat at Applebees again.

I would imagine by now that members of the Truth in the World Deliverance Ministries has gotten wind of what their "pastor" did at Applebee's. It's not enough that she would stiff a hard-working waiter, but that she would go back and demand that several employees be fired. I can't imagine an honest, God-fearing Church would put up with such an uppity, arrogant woman who has the audacity to do such a thing. How else do you think she has betrayed you? I promise you that there are thousands of people in this country (and probably around the world) RIGHT NOW who have such a terrible opinion of your Church that you would be ashamed.
Even if Bell apologizes, the damage is done. This is your Church. This is what everyone will forever remember about your Church. Aren't you proud?

You must be a member of the church...asking for a donation from Applebee's.... FUNNY! Do you realize the bad press Applebee's has gotten from this?? MILLIONS in revenue will be lost becaue of their stupidity. And you want a donation to the church, where the woman that caused this is the pastor???? HAVE YOU LOST YOR MIND???
