The Lad bible, published in Australia in 2013, is considered by many to be one of the most influential evangelical tracts in the world.
The book contains a description of a “home for two”, a home for a couple in which each of them will live in a “homeless community”.
A group of Christian and social workers who are working on this community say they are concerned about the impact of this book on children and the poor.
“It has an awful lot of misinformation and it’s not based on fact.
It’s not grounded in fact,” said Margaret Stokes, the co-founder of The Lad Foundation, which is helping to run the centre.”
This is not about poverty, it’s about the Bible.”
The bible says you must keep your neighbour as close as possible and that you have to do this in the name of God.
“So how do you do that if you’re in a community where you have no money?”
The centre is part of a growing movement to support and care for homeless people in Australia.
Stokes, who runs a homeless shelter in Canberra, said her centre was designed with a particular focus on the needs of homeless people.
She said she was worried the book might lead people to believe the homeless should be treated differently.
“We need to be looking at how to deal with this,” she said.
“If you’re going to take a child, then you can’t take them into the street and give them to someone else who might then abuse them.”
That’s not right.
“A review of the book by a national homeless taskforce found that it contained inaccurate information and inaccuracies about the situation of homelessness in Australia, as well as misleading and misleading claims about the benefits of community housing.
The taskforce said it would recommend that the Salvation Army review the book and revise it to reflect current trends.
The Salvation Army did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
