How do the church work as a welfare office, does it work better than the government. Ive never thought of the chruch as providning welfare. But does it work so well, that their is no need for a welfare state? Say you want welfare in US: Is it the government or the churches that provides the best welfare, what welfare can I get in the church? Can they give food and money as the government can? If you were broke and needed food and stuff, would youve gone to the church or the governments welfare office? Who gives the best services?
