The Responsibility of the Church in the Current Society.
The church is an institution that exists in every part of the world just like schools and hospitals. The church plays a very big role in the community today. Over the last ten years we have seen megachurches being built across America and the world which are led by business minded and other leaders. Social media and other websites are used by these megachurches to broadcast their praise and worship sessions to other people who are not in the church. Church has become a place of entertainment due to the expensive multimedia devices that are used in praise and worship. The number of people attending church has also increased due to the messages of empowerment that are offered in there which leave people feeling good and motivated. Below are a few roles that the church performs in the society.
The church is a place that helps to solve some of the problems you might be facing. The world has become a very competitive place and at the end of the week people need to be empowered in various ways so that they can face the upcoming week. The institution of marriage has suffered many challenges over the years and children are most affected by this, the church, therefore, comes in and tries to resolve such issues. Due to the tough economic times in the country, many people find themselves in financial problems and the need help from the church. As a result, churches have developed welfare schemes that are there to meet the needs of each believer. As a result, the general community can borrow some of these good works from the church.
The church offers advice to politicians. This religious institution influences activities such as voting and campaigns. Religious people vote according to their beliefs as they matter to them more than anything else. The issue of marriage has become a common talk among Americans. The church has been firm in its belief that marriage should be between two adults of different genders. This has been an issue where believers in the church have been forced to vote against such laws due to their belief in the Bible against homosexuality.
The church has a responsibility in welcoming people from all walks of life. The society has many people that need to feel accepted and treated well once a while. The society has experienced an increase in people who are not able to meet their basic needs. The church should show mercy to such people as it has been called to play this role. Additionally, the church can hire such people to carry out simple tasks around the church such as cutting grass.
