    The evangelical church has a social responsibility. But what is that responsibility and what does it look like in practice? This collection explores the nature of the institutional church’s responsibility, but also explores deeper questions related to the church’s social witness: Why is the church significant?   Church leaders should not focus on social work, but are called “to prayer and to the ministry of the word” (Acts ). But others in the church got the special task to help the poor in the church (Acts ). However, nowhere in the New Testament we read that the church as an institution got involved in social issues outside the church.

      At the local church level, sex trafficking, fair trade, and clean water campaigns are trendy ways today for lay Christians to fight social ills, even if that means simply clicking a “Like” button. Personal Responsibility. Each of us will give an account to God for what we do as individuals. Despite ancient customs often attributed to God, he does not hold even family members accountable for the actions of individuals. All responsibility is personal. Individual accountability is an essential piece of the Law and the Gospel.

      Verses 14 & 15 (next week) show the church’s responsibility toward one another: Minister sensitively; and, live lovingly. The main point of the entire section (1 Thess. ) is that “God will sanctify and inspire peace in His people that they may be blameless at Christ’s coming” (G. K. Beale, Thessalonians [IVP Academic], p. ). 71 Bible Verses about ethics, social Responsibility, For God's World Stability Kings, Duties Of Good Kings.

The thesis of this book is that Christian salvation also includes the social order; that the Christian church is responsible for the social conditions and must provide redemptive measures for society. This is a study of some of the major social areas in the light of Protestantism's theological convictions.

No single author could have written equally well in each of the areas explored. A proper understanding of this distinction provides the means to appreciate the complexity of social life in the modern world and to invigorate the church’s witness and action with both the rigor of institutional authority and the vitality of conscientious action.
