A Shelter Require Homeless Women To Attend Megachurch And Tithe!!

Image
Reader this is a doggone shame, a homeless woman says a shelter required her to attend Church of the Highlands, even though a church where she was a member was about a block away.
A women's shelter in Birmingham requires all residents to board a
van and attended worship services at the Woodlawn branch of the Church of the Highlands each Sunday. They're not given the option to attend any other church. They're also required to tithe every week, despite being homeless.

So What's The Big Deal, LisaRaye McCoy Was Recently Baptized???


Lord have mercy, another "celebrity" patting themselves on the back for something people do everyday. Water baptism should be a very significant time in the life as a believer. It’s a time to fully commit to obey and follow Jesus, being willing to fulfill the purpose and plan of Almighty God for our life.

The awesome significance of water baptism is that it symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and our identification with Him in them. Water baptism also gives the believer the opportunity to openly testify to others of his born-again experience. It serves as an outward sign and testimony of an inward grace. The believer has been crucified with Christ, buried with Him and raised together with Him to walk in newness of life (Galatians 2:20; Romans 6:4).

In the last few days the internet was in a complete meltdown over a pic posted on social media, of actress Lisa Raye getting baptized at her home by celebrity pastor Toure Roberts.  Lisa is a member of One Church International in Los Angeles, and credits the church for helping her make real changes in her life. She posted the following statement:



I'm thinking, if Ms. Raye truly identifies with the Christian faith, then this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, nor news worthy. I just don't get it? In my opinion, there's no such thing as a "Super-Christian." The Scriptures refer to Jesus as being the last Adam (I Corinthians 15:21-22, 45). Jesus, in His sacrifice for us, represented us. When a person receives Jesus as Lord, they identify fully with what happened to Jesus (Romans 6:4-6). Water baptism is a physical act that should indelibly mark the mind of the person being baptized with the reality of his union with Jesus Christ. Why are people online, so surprised that Ms. Raye got baptized?

  6. A Child Of The King:Wednesday, 06 August, 2014

    I agree Ann there is no Super Christian. Now that she have announced this to the world, she need to stay on her course. The public (well the enemies of God) will be looking for any reason to make a spectacle of her and her King. She is in the public eye. Make his name glorious. For some she may be the only piece of God they'll ever see. the saints know that even the righteous fall seven times but the world ain't gonna go so easy on her.

  7. If it was a different situation I would applaud her. However I feel its just for ratings for Noel Jones. This chick wants to be that first lady.

  8. She should've kept this private and allowed us to see her salvation through her actions & choices. Now she will be under scruitny and the public will monitor her every move & call her out on any precieved inconsistencies.

    1. Agree Anonymous, she needs to be humble about this...if you are truly a changed woman people will know without you having to announce it to the world...this is like people who walk around carrying the bible...just for show...

  9. I pray and hope she get genuinely born again (John 3:16), because water baptism does NOT save you. You get baptized BECAUSE you saved.IJS

    1. Its a beautiful symbol of love. All she had to do was believe in the death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and she would have been saved. Anyone who studies the word of God knows that water baptism was being preached by John The Baptist and 11 apostles who worked with Jesus directly. Paul in the new testament said all we had to do was believe but still happy for her.

  10. I see nothing wrong with her confessing to the world the inward change that came over her life... we don't get upset when the average Jane or Joe post pics on their web blogs when they get baptized... so why are we up in arms over Lisa because she did??? I pray the blood of Jesus Christ will cover her as the devil is already attack her faith...

  12. Wow, wow, wow ! Some of you folks commenting are so full of hatred, jealousy, indifference, malice, gossip, envy, lies, doubt, worldliness, unfaithfulness, slander, rebellion, stubbornness, fear, unholy, uncleanness, ....how can you criticize Lisa for not asking you if she should share her Baptism pic. You cant honestly criticize her without revealing how corrupt your own human spirit is. Take a look in the mirror , ya`ll ! Do we see a reflection of Jesus the Christ or do we see a wretch un-done ? If we don't see perfection when we look in the mirror then...SHUT-UP! You just make sure your family, loved -ones, neighbors, co-workers, church family, and the "World " can see Jesus when they look at your LIFE. If due to the Grace of God you are living HOLY, then don't become "Self-Righteous ". Lisa only has to answer to the God of Heaven, not the raging anger and hatred of a sick society filled with angry, poor, hostile, religious people, who`s love has grown cold, like a candle that has gone out. Who in the world would have ever believed that someone would be criticized for taking a pic at their own Baptism observance. Folks so riveted on who it is in the pic and judging that person because you are influenced by the gossiping tongues. You all don't know that woman ! It`s so easy to tear down someone you don't even know, and will never know. If she was fat, black, crusty, rusty and ugly there would be no ruckus or uproar. If you are judging her so harshly because you have been affected by the gossip about her past and present life, then you are in the same boat she is in because we all have an imperfect past and present. Stop judging folks off of gossip you heard and read about! That is so stupid! Sooner or later we will start acting and talking like "children of the Kin ". Judging people off of gossip is low-down, sinful , and very ignorant, to say the least !

  13. Anonymous why you mad? If Lisa Raye didn't want the attention and gossiping from the public, then she would not have had cameras rolling. Go set down some where with all that unwanted noise.
