Safety in Numbers
The internet has connected people from all over the globe, but it has also enhanced the chances of people being scammed. There are still local scammers, and the availability of information has helped them learn how to keep ahead of the innocent. There are many people in modern society who lack core values, these people do not hesitate to take advantage of others. Keeping members safe while doing good deeds has now become part of the job of modern churches, and they are often quite successful at it.
There are many times when people need assistance in life, and churches are willing to provide it to their own members. In the past, many churches would assist any person in need. That has changed recently, and it is due to lack of funding as well as greater demands for help.
Churches attract many different people, and some of them have excellent organizational skills. When the church chooses to help the community at large, they often call on these people. They sort out the groups who truly need assistance, and part of their work is to warn members about those who are scammers.
There is more apparent need in the world than ever before, and churches have taken on the burden of helping their members do good deeds in the most effective ways. They put the work of the church community to excellent use by being selective, and they keep their members safe from being used and abused by those who are not truly in need of anything except moral guidance.
