Church is meant to be governmental and influential. That can sound like a power trip and people who want that will go after that. Jesus demonstrated power and influence without corrupting both those two words.
We are meant to serve this culture, community or society not judge and criticise. We are to offer hope, a solution not an invitation to a meeting.
Businesses, schools, hospitals, the police etc should be getting solutions from the body of Christ. Solutions that have their origins in heaven not man’s thinking. God wants to bless His creation but we can stubbornly refuse to believe that we have anything to contribute.
There is no separation of secular and sacred. One impacts the other, they are intertwined. He created a physical world and a real heaven. The two operate together at all times. What you do in the physical impacts the spiritual and vice versa. Take the time to find out how and why.
