They can learn their responsibilities from the modern church by going to church and listening to the priest and find out what they can do to help one another. It could simply be helping a brother or sister in something or helping a person of another race and taking care of them like in The Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). ...read more.

They believe this can be done through prayer and raising money just for the developing countries. In conclusion I think Christians have a responsibility to his fellow man and to help those in need. I think the people whop need the most help are those in the developing countries.
