The Role of the Church in the Society
Every country in the world has several churches in it as it is a common institution in the church. The church has a great influence in the society in so many ways. 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. These churches use technology use various means to pass their messages across the ends of the world. Most people have begun seeing the church as a place where they can go to enjoy themselves due to the kind of modern music being played there. As a result, many people have come to the idea of attending church services since they receive messages of encouragement. The church has several responsibilities that will be shown in the article below.
The church provides spiritual and emotional nourishment. The world is a harsh place which can easily discourage an individual and this is where the church comes in to provide empowerment so that people cannot give up on their jobs. The church plays a significant role in supporting children that are in situations where their parents are going through a divorce. 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. Such measures can even be implemented into the community which is a larger part of the church, and we have seen Rick VanWagner do during charity events held by his church.
The church offers advice to politicians. The voting activity is swayed greatly by the church beliefs. Religious people vote according to their beliefs as they matter to them more than anything else. Politics has been affected by the different view of marriage in the society in the last decade. The church believes that marriage should be allowed only to a male and female who are adults. The Bible forbids gay marriages and the church agrees with it and not any other views.
The church plays another major role in accepting every individual that walks into it. It is only natural to want to be accepted in society and given special treatment sometimes. The society has experienced an increase in people who are not able to meet their basic needs. As a result, the church should help such people and accommodate them within the church. The church can hire these people as drivers or cleaners and paid well so that they can meet their daily needs.
