I just finished reading the testosterone book “Why Men Hate Going to Church” by David Murrow. With all that influx of testosterone images going through my brain, I was tempted to go out and chop down a tree, or procreate, or something.
I really feel sorry for the author. All these feminized churches! Men who have to become girlie to go to church, pastors who must subdue their feminine side. What a burden we women have placed on the body of Christ with our churches.
He said that men love starting new churches, entering into a building program. And then they leave. Well, whose fault is that? It seems to be mine, and women like me. I have worked with starting new churches, and have been on building committees. He seems to think that once the church is up and functioning, the women take over, and the men go out the window.
Common knowledge is that churches are made up of 60% women and 40% men. The latest statistics show that 94,232 more boys than girls were born in 2004. But at the end of the day, there are 6,116,837 fewer men than women in the United States. And we must remember that nearly 75% of nursing home residents are women, who are probably not attending church.
Yes, there are more women in church than there are men. There are more women alive in the United States than there are men. Six million more. 60/40 is still way out of balance, but it has always been that way. Even author David Murrow admits that it goes back to the 13th century. Mosques are male-dominated, and testosterone flows out into the streets. If our churches were 40/60, is that what we would have?
- go find some men and bring them
- host a Wild Game Event
- have a discus throwing party,
or should the apostle Paul have done exactly what he did do? Witness to the ones he had there, and give them the word of God?
