Stephen Baldwin looks to be bailed out by Christian faith

Actor Stephen Baldwin is broke. But he’s not turning to his “30 Rock” brother Alec Baldwin for help rather his fans.

So if you’re a big fan of his, your financial donation can bail him out and possibly land you a good spot in heaven.

According to Wonderwall, a Christian group website has been launched whereby fans can send their money to bail out the “Usual Suspects” star, who is up to his neck in $2.3 million worth of debt – a bill he rang up from mortgages, taxes and credit cards.

All online donations made to will be deposited directly to Baldwin’s account. Baldwin’s spiritual guru and President of Baldwin ministries, Daniel Southern, oversee the site.
Apparently, just because Baldwin embraced Christianity, Hollywood has turned his back on him — which makes one wonder if the people behind Restore Stephen Baldwin ever saw 1996’s “Bio-Dome.” The mission statement for the charity reads as follows:

“Stephen Baldwin of the famous ‘Baldwin Brothers’ Hollywood clan is a veteran actor who has starred in over 60 films and TV shows. He is no stranger to the Hollywood life of glitz, glamour and the public eye.

In 2003, he had an experience that changed his life forever. He became Born Again Christian, giving his life to Jesus Christ. Over the next few years, he became very vocal about his faith, using his spotlight to boldly preach the gospel. However, because of these convictions it has caused him the loss of many jobs and the most recently, a highly publicized bankruptcy.”

He has been publicly ridiculed and insulted by people who think that he has been abandoned by God. A simple search through the internet will reveal that people not only mock Stephen, but mock God.”

    Never in my long life, and I strongly believe that never in the history of Christianity have Christians been more persecuted. This seems to be world-wide. Baldwin is deep in debt, like many Americans today. The question is how did he get there? Has he lived a frugal life, a life in the manner stated in both the old and new testaments? I cannot judge. I do know that 3.2 million is a hell of a lot of money. What was it that the old comedian use to say; “the devil made me do it”…Flip Wilson.. If only a few dollars went to a group like Focus Adolescent Services, they could make it last for a long time. For twenty years Focusas has been saving the lives of American children. I am told that over one million people visit their site for help a Month. That seems like a lot to me. I find it sad, but am glad that they offer a free telephone help line. They are just one of many who are working to save the children in America. When I read that one in eight American children are hungry it makes me ill. We all do what we can. Most of us do it without wanting any recognition. Place it on your scale. Is it a better thing to help Stephen Baldwin,( when his brother could write a check and settle the matter), or is it better to send a buck or to to or any other group and help to save the children in our country?
    My last question is for the Hollywooders. Do they give out of the goodness of their hearts? Do they all feel a need to first call their agent, press agentt,before giving a million bucks to some charity? Then following that do they have to be followed around with cameras showing them in action.

    Stephen Baldwin has not asked for the bailout nor did his adviser have anything to do with it, it was a fellow Christian out of Florida that started this. While I am also a Christian, I won’t be sending him anything. He got into debt just like everyone else, by spending more than he makes. Furthermore, his idea of Christianity, using the Gospel as an excuse to be offensive and annoying, does not win souls for Christ and the victim mentality that so many Christians have whenever something happens they don’t like is disgusting. But to give the impression that Baldwin himself set this up is false and misleading. Shame on you.

    Not getting quite as much work as you’d like does not constitute persecution. It’s the same way with Victoria Jackson.

    The reason she’s not getting as much work as she was is the same reason Gary Coleman isn’t getting as much as he was. Because when you can only play one character, it wears out. She has to realize that a TON of people are competing for acting jobs and a lot of them are more talented that she is.

    As far as mocking God in an internet post, remember that people (generally speaking) are idiots in internet posts. Somewhere out there Stephen Hawking is posting a dissenting opinion of a Star Trek episode by saying ‘LOLZ! I TEEBG U! CHOK N DEEZ NUTZ ROFLCOPTERZ!’.

    As far as Christianity, it’s not God that’s the problem…its the leadership. So people need to stop blaming lower church attendance on a sense of moral corruption and start blaming it on religious leaders who have made it clear that they can do whatever the hell they want.

    I don’t understand why he doesn’t start working for Disney, or Hallmark. There’s Christian channels and Christian direct to video movies, a whole industry of it. Everyone has low points. Even his brother Alec had to spend a few years doing guest stars on tv shows (which is so beneath a man of his talent), because he foolishly lost his temper on a private phone call MESSAGE. Because he was tied up in a messy divorce. But he didn’t give up. He also doesn’t spend frivolous money. He did lousy low budget cameos, and he did them all with the same dedication. The difference between Alec and Stephen is that Alec LOVES acting. He’d do it for free. It’s his passion. Just You Tube the Actor’s Studio with him and watch a man that LOVES his job. Stephen got into acting to make lots of money, and ride Alec’s coattails . So did the other ones, but one thing, Daniel, the least known, has made the most movies of all the four. Billy works. Not all of them are blockbusters. It’s a job. Stephen needs to do the work, and love the work, or find something else he DOES actually love. That’s when things start to happen for people.

    I’m a Christian who got himself into some debt from school loans and expenses due to that goal.
    I took a look in the mirror and at the same time heard of Dave Ramsey. If you’re a Christian or non, check this man out and stop the debt snowball right now. HIs motto is..”live like no one else, so you can live like no one else” Basically most people are in debt, so if you check out Dave’s steps to a Total Money Makeover, (pick up at a library by the way) you can be on your way and not end up like Mr. Baldwin. For now his best bet is BK, Popular these days. Even more popular than Stephen Baldwin.
