Why the Black Church Need the Black Community & Why the Black Community Need the Black Church
Since we’ve hit these soils our connection with God, Jes...us, Church and community were the things that helped in keeping our sanity. The church gave, the church fed and the church supported the community with health care. Three key factors in keeping a community safe. Security, feeding and healthy. The church gave us a sense of security, a sense of caring and a sense of being there for the community in time of need. I believe the Black church still support these values but in a different way. I’ll keep my opinion to myself. I will say this if the church took more of an active role in health care and feeding the community everything else will fall into place. More blacks are moving towards the non-traditional churches because they preach about the fruits, the rewards of serving God. The Black Church was built on the preaching fear of God, the punishment and the fires of hell. I believe this religious dialog has made black people step back and look at the situation and they have concluded that if God is going to punish us, the devils is setting us up to be punish why should I serve a God that lets us go through this. Black people need the black church for one reason so they can educate the black church on the values of truth and trust. The values of looking at their dialog, the values of bringing people into the house of worship and share God’s love on no terms. The black community has to be open to the fact that they cannot blame the church for the crime, murders, and homelessness. We should look at the Black church as a place of worship, sanctuary and community support. I’m not a supporter of non-denominational churches nor am I a support of Mega churches. I support any church that preaches about the goodness of living right and serving God in a way that encourages us to change.
