Coding consists of two major parts, one logic and one is organizing logic. Consider logic as a contents of book and organizing as a book library.Book Library is organized by categories and then it is further organized by either author name or title in dictionary form. Imagine if you had a good contents of book but if it wasn't organized properly. Imagine if everyone organize contents of book and book in library with random order.

I consider class as a way to organize logic, you still have your functional ways to write logic but class is well understood by everyone and it is easy to document and organize. And it is very easy to refactor the code because IDE knows all references of identifier and it can safely refactor it. This was basically the reason why C++, Java and C# became more popular because developers need not focus on how to write it correctly and were able to focus on business needs.

 
 

This is an excellent explained opinion with an example :)

The class syntax is a natural way to express objects form a real world. They represent something, which can have unique properties attached. The problem is that we are using classes to do everything, and we mix business logic with the state. We do that because it is so easy. Only what we have to do is add methods...

IDEs can also handle more functional approach. If not, they will. If it would be opposite, I would be very sorry for all functional languages programmers.

 

IDEs do handle refactor in functional language, but it will not be as powerful as the one with class language.

You are right about doing everything in class, infact same applies to functional, people want to do everything in functional way, that is also wrong, using best of both worlds will be perfect approach.
