Again, it is not a “service to the people” the church is supposed to preach the gospel and fulfill the great commission. There is this weird and bizarre notion that the actual message of the gospel is unimportant or it’s “strings attached” and that the church has a social role of what amounts to alms giving. The gospel is the point. Jesus himself fed the hungry and healed the sick, but his miracle work wasn’t simply to provide charity to the hungry and sick of Judea of which there were very many but to redeem their souls. The physical healing and giving food is a representation of what His actual mission was. Just as caring for the sick and poor is a reflection or expression of what the Church’s mission is.
