Remove a Layer > Type > Render Layer feature?

I inherited some PSD images.  Problem, I cannot edit/modify the Text Type layer because the Layer > Type Render Layer was applied to the Text Type layer.

There has got to be a way (I hope!) to remove the Type Render Layer feature that had been applied to the Text Type. How can I do it?

What is the point in applying Render Layer to a Text Layer type? I've never used it and my Text layers always look perfect.

Need help on this badly!!

Sorry Jamaica,
    Once a text layer has been rendered it becomes a graphic and cannot be reversed. Th main reason fo rendering a text layer is so that you can do effects on it (such as wind or fire or bevel), the best thing for you to do would be to create a new layer and recreate the text.

God bless!
Sam.

Oh no! That is heinous!  It is such a pain having to recreate the text... main reason, whosoever had created it first, used different font colouring, and all the texts is an individual layer AND the text is slanted.

will, thanks for responding with the answer.
