Christian churches have a responsibility to Christ, who is the Head of the Church.
Since Christ is the Head of the Church, honoring Christ requires leading churches to honor Christ in their communities.
When a Christian church in a town does not voice its opposition to town businesses not playing Christmas music during Christmas time, that church is dishonoring Christ. The members of that church as the Body of Christ are disrespecting Christ. Silence is guilt.
It is important for the Christian church to be the salt and light of the world. This means that the church you attend must comment on immorality like gay marriage in the public sphere. In other words, your Bible-believing church has to object publicly to homosexuality and proclaim that it is wrong to tolerate homosexuality in society. This is the Body of Christ (church) being the salt and light of the world.
Feeding the poor is not the work of the Christian church, but many liberal churches emphasize feeding the poor, while not sharing the Gospel. The mission of the church is not to feed the poor. This is clear because Jesus Christ never ever made feeding the poor an important part of His ministry. What would Jesus do?
The mission of the church is to share the Gospel and convert people of other religions to Christianity. That’s what Jesus Christ did. That’s what St. Paul did. That is what all the disciples of Jesus Christ did in the Bible?
If your pastor talks a lot of food pantry and feeding the poor but does not encourage Christian evangelization and converting people of Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Budddhism, and other religions to Christ, then your pastor is going in the wrong direction. People of other religions need Jesus Christ to be saved.
People of all other religions are going to Hell. It is important not to respect other religions, because they are false religions. Your church should teach you not to respect other religions. Your pastor should preach that other religions are false religions. You must teach your children actively and frequently that Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and other religions are false religions and that they cannot be saved from these religions.
It is important for Bible-believing Christians to minimize other religions in American society so that other religions, like Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, do not dominate Christianity in American society. Remember, every Bible-believing Christian is a soldier of Christ to push the Christian Gospel in their work place, in their community, and among their friends and acquaintances.
Christians should be involved to make Christianity public and central in their towns, schools, stores, market places, businesses, political organizations, government institutions. This is being the salt and light of the world.
If you respect other religions, then you cannot be a true witness of the Christian Gospel. Jesus Christ did not respect other religions; Jesus Christ attacked leaders of Judaism, all the time.
St. Paul disrespected other religions in Roman democracy and was arrested for it by the democratic government of his time for religious intolerance.
St. Paul tried to convert Jews of synagogue to Christianity and Pagans in public areas to Christianity. St. Paul did not respect Judaism or Paganism. Disrespecting other religions is the very first step to Biblical Evangelism. You cannot be a true servant of Christ if you respect other religions. Telling people of other religions that their religions are false religions is disrespect. This disrespect for other religions is the starting point of Christianity and Christian evangelism and Christian world missions.
Any Christian who wants to pass laws to respect other religions publicly or officially are not a true Christian. A true Christian pushes to centralize Christianity as the only true religion in the American society. We follow the Bible as true Christians, not human-made documents. Bible trumps all human documents.
