The Role of the Church in the Society
The church is an institution that exists in every part of the world just like schools and hospitals. Most areas of our lives are influenced by the church. Many churches have been built by different organizations and individuals across the country in the recent past. These churches use technology use various means to pass their messages across the ends of the world. Modern music equipment is used in this churches to make it more fun and attract the younger crowd. 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. The church has several responsibilities that will be shown in the article below.
The church provides spiritual and emotional nourishment. 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. Families are experiencing more challenges where children are growing up in broken homes, and they need to be supported by institutions such as the church. Additionally, people go to church for financial support since many Christians are sinking into financial debts and struggling to make ends meet in everyday life. Due to the rise in economic crisis, the church has come up with ways to cater for such people using various charity organizations. As a result, the general community can borrow some of these good works from the church.
The political field can benefit greatly from the influence of the church. The voting activity is swayed greatly by the church beliefs. It is common knowledge that most people vote depending on their religious beliefs and the church plays a very big role in this. Politics has been affected by the different view of marriage in the society in the last decade. The church has been adamant that marriage should only take place between a man and woman and not similar sexes. 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. This is an area where the church should intervene and help such people. Additionally, the church can hire such people to carry out simple tasks around the church such as cutting grass.
