The novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak in South Korea has been re established since August 12th, according to
. Up to now, the total number of confirmed cases associated with the church has reached 676 and 114 public places have been involved. Why are there so many confirmed cases of Korean Catholic Church in Korean Catholic Church? Zhao Xian believes that, first of all, Korean Protestantism has far more missionary enthusiasm than other religions. For example, in their major religions, Catholicism is often compared to government agencies, Buddhism is compared to institutions, and Protestantism is equivalent to self-employed. < p > < p > Catholicism has such a centralized organizational structure as “Papal church parish”. Priests, like civil servants, do not have to be rigidly bound by personal achievements, nor do they have to restrict believers to go to church or force them to donate money. However, it is not as strict as Catholicism. By nature, monks pursue freedom, and their management of believers is relatively loose. However, Protestantism is not the case. There are hundreds of religious groups, each of which has strong characteristics. Its success or failure depends on the ability of the pastor. Therefore, the Protestant church in the management of believers, missionary, donation and other aspects of the enthusiasm is far higher than other religions. This is why Catholics and Buddhists listen whenever the government restricts the assembly of religious facilities, so as not to raise big objections. Protestant priests always complain: “why not take care of restaurants, bars and cafes, and just stop small gatherings of churches?” Zhao also said that in South Korea, the enthusiasm of Protestant churches was enough to surprise Christians in other countries. Believers gather in the church every morning for morning prayer and a meal after the service, which is not seen in other countries. < p > < p > morning prayer is similar to the traditional Korean culture of throwing Jinghua water on the saucepan. Dining originally started in temples, but more and more churches began to arrange after service meals, inheriting the traditional appearance of gathering in wing rooms to share feelings. In addition to the Southern Baptist Church in the United States and parts of Africa, this practice is also rare in other countries. < p > < p > compared with temples and Catholic churches, Protestant churches also have more believers per unit area. If they praise, pray in unison or have dinner together without wearing masks, they are likely to spray foam. In particular, there are 10 churches in a region and 100 in a parish. They are centered on point (cell) organizations and hold meetings several times a week. Compared with other religions, the frequency of contact between religious people is much higher.
in February this year, when the new crown spread of the new world Church in Daegu spread, most of the old churches faithfully comply with the government’s epidemic prevention policy and maintain “social distance” in the chapel while conducting online worship. However, the Protestants are very worried about the separation of believers. This year, the General Federation of Korean churches has designated May 31 as the “Korean church worship recovery day” and carried out publicity activities calling on “all believers to worship in the church as before”. This practice also reflects this sense of urgency. A pastor of the General Federation of Korean churches said: “most churches still abide by the epidemic prevention guidelines even though the number of believers and donations is reduced, which leads to operational difficulties. However, some churches hold revival and practice meetings, praise and pray, and even have a bed and board, causing losses to many churches.”
