The social gospel is a movement that has gained popularity in the last few years, but its growth has been largely fueled by a social anxiety that many of its adherents share.
Many Christians have been concerned about the spread of the gospel and the social justice issues it has brought.
“I feel like it’s the perfect vehicle for me to go out there and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, and it’s going to make a huge difference,” said John Pomeroy, a member of the Christian faith community of Southern California.
Pomeroy is one of many people who have made the social Gospel Movement work for them, in some cases by making their lives more meaningful.
He is among the followers of Pastor Scott Pomeroys social gospel group, which has helped them overcome some of the social anxiety and depression that has plagued many of his congregants.
The Pastor Scott group, called Social Gospel, was formed in 2014 and is based in South Carolina.
According to Pomeroya, the group works on the social healing principles of the Gospel.
Pomeroya said that he started a blog in 2014 that focused on social gospel, which helped him feel more connected to his congregation and to his family.
He said that his blog helped him deal with a lot of the anxiety that was surrounding him.
“I felt like I could talk to them about their experiences,” Pomeroro said.
“I could go on their blogs and talk about their struggles.”
Pomeroro’s social gospel helped him cope with the anxiety.
“The blogs are very personal, and they’re really about me,” Pomeria said.
The blogs provide him with a sense of belonging.
“They’re not just about the church, but they’re also about me and my family,” he said.
Pomeria also said that the social groups helped him find his calling.
“My mission has been to find the way to be a better person and a better husband and a worse person,” Pominas said.
“The social gospel has helped me in ways I never thought possible,” he added.
Some of the pastors of Social Gospel also have seen a significant increase in followers.
Pastor Paul L. Miller, who is also a pastor in the social group, said that social gospel had helped him overcome the fear of social ostracism.
“In my life, I’ve had to constantly hide who I am and where I come from,” he told ABC News.
Miller said that having a strong sense of self was important to him, especially during the recent election season.
“You can have people who are not as open and loving, but you have to have that confidence that you can be a good person and still be a great leader,” he explained.
Miller has been a member for a few years and said that there are many people in the group that are still on the fence about joining the group.
“There are people who feel like I should be part of the community, but there are people I feel like, ‘You know what, I don’t think I can do it,’ ” he said, adding that there were some people who were “still afraid.”
Miller is part of an emerging group of social gospel leaders that includes Pastor Eric J. Johnson, Pastor David C. Moore and Pastor Michael T. Jones, all of whom have had significant success with their social gospel efforts.
“We’re all kind of in the same boat,” Moore said.
Moore has a number of different social gospel groups, including one called Social Evangelicals for a Common Purpose, and also a Social Gospel Fellowship.
Moore said that some of his social gospel members have left his social Gospel Fellowship because it was too hard to stay.
“When you’re in the church for so long, the church feels like you’re on the outside of it,” he recalled.
“But it doesn’t really matter where you go.
The church is the church.”
Moore has said that one of the biggest challenges in social gospel work is finding someone who shares your faith.
“One of the things I think is important to remember is that you’re not a Christian if you don’t feel comfortable talking to someone who does,” Moore told ABCNews.com.
“So many people say, ‘Oh, I’m just going to go to church, and I’ll do my best,’ and they don’t do that.
So, you need to figure out how to talk to people who don’t fit into the church.
It’s not just the church that has to be part, it’s how you’re interacting with people and how you are sharing your gospel.”
Moore is not the only pastor who has noticed a shift in the popularity of the faith.
Pastor Jeffery M. Williams, who has also been a social gospel leader for the last several years, said he noticed a noticeable change in the number of followers that he had in the past.
“What has changed is the number that I have,” Williams said.
Williams said that in
