Recession and God

Recession leads the people to God. More and more people are turning to God in these hard times. A recent report in USA Today says that the people flocking to churches of every denomination has increased many folds. Pleas to church for help by unemployed has made pastors even to reach into their own pockets.

A Survey, by LifeWay Reasearch, a Christian polling firm based in Nashville, finds that 40% of pastors say they have church members out of work, and 37% say their church has increased spending to help the needy. Some churches have initiated special ministries to help unemployed.

The Religion is a solace to the people in trouble. It always gave strength to the downtrodden. Religion gives moral strength to face difficulties. Christ has the power to heal, dispense hope, and guide to blissful future. Some researchers trace the religion itself to fear factors. But one thing is sure, at times of difficulties, when one do not know where to turn for help: Religion helps.
