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. 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. 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. These acts of charity can be extended to the community at larger to cater for everyone in the country.
The church is an institution that provides the political world with advice and moral grounds. Political activities are greatly affected by a religious view. The church plays a huge responsibility on how people vote since people vote in accordance with their religious books. 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. It is only natural to want to be accepted in society and given special treatment sometimes. Many needy people have become more desperate due to the inability to make enough money to feed themselves and their families. 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.
