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. The church plays a very big role in the community today. Many churches have been built by different organizations and individuals across the country in the recent past. These megachurches broadcast their services all over television networks, YouTube channels, and the radios to pass various messages to the people in the world. Modern music equipment is used in this churches to make it more fun and attract the younger crowd. As a result, many people have come to the idea of attending church services since they receive messages of encouragement. Below are a few roles that the church performs in the society.
The church helps to meet the needs of the people be it spiritual, physical or emotional. 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. Moreover, due to financial strain, many believers find themselves in debt, and they need the help of the church to overcome such problems. The church is among charitable organizations and hence it can pull its resources to help its members. 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 is an institution that provides the political world with advice and moral grounds. Political activities are greatly affected by a religious view. It is common knowledge that most people vote depending on their religious beliefs and the church plays a very big role in this. 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.
People need to be accepted in at least on an institution in the society, and the church helps in this. Human beings need to be around other people and experience love. 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.
