pastorhomelessJames MacDonald is the pastor at Harvest Bible Chapel in Illinois. He’s the founder of the seven-campus Chicagoland area congregation whose "Walk in the Word" radio and television programs are seen by millions worldwide. James recently disguised himself as a bearded homeless man and camped outside of two of their campuses before Sunday services to see how members would react. The video starts off showing MacDonald dressed in layers with a fake beard and long gray fake hair as he rolls a shopping cart down the street toward one of the Harvest campuses. MacDonald then takes a seat right in front of the building, putting out a cup for change, and a sign. The beginning scenes show a few walking right past him without offering much help. But then it shows James, still dressed as the homeless man, walking through the church sanctuary with his shopping cart, then up on stage where he reveals his true identity. As he reminds them God calls for us to "love your neighbor as yourself", he tells them the whole story and asks them how they think they did.
