I bet there is more to this story. So many bleeding hearts when it comes to BUMS oops I mean homeless. I have a feeling this church was in reality making these Bums not act like Bums, making them live like decent people and earn a living.

Well no the story says they were making them panhandle so they were just using the bums to get money out of people.

In Calunicornia, that is earning a decent living.

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Eph 6:5

Yeah and? The master slave relationship as defined with Christian social teaching would be one of respect and care. It would be like your boss paying you in food cloths healthcare and housing rather then wages. It wouldn’t look at all like the abusive forced chattel slavery we think of in the west when the term is used.

spartan: 20 “Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, 21 but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property. exodus 21: 20-21 sounds like a loving environment to me

Sounds about right for California.

That doesn't sound like the behavior of a Christian church.

Its not, it's the behavior of opportunists who are willing to enslave other human beings to make a quick buck

My point is that the stories will have all been written to make churches and especially the Christian Church look bad, when the problem is evil people using a "ministry" as a pretense for evil.
