Go For the Men!

Bringing Back Godly Order It has been said, “If you preach to women, you’ll reach women. If you preach to children, you’ll reach children. If you preach to men, you’ll reach men, women, and children.” The typical program-based church has an endless array of “ministries.” Normally, they will have children’s programs galore, a ladies’ ministry, youth group, pre-school/daycare, sports teams, Sunday School…

Jumping Ship: Why Young People Leave the Church

A group of SBC leaders consulted with a prominent independent pastor. They were seeking advice on ways to reduce the number of young people leaving church after high school graduation. Reportedly, they estimated they were losing around 93% of their students while perceiving that the independents were losing only 73% of their young people. Can you imagine consulting with someone who has a failure rate…

Post-America Survival Guide

Understanding Our Times—Knowing What to Do And of the children of Issachar . . . had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do. (1 Chronicles 12:32) The men of Issachar were astute men who comprehended their day.

Sentimental Religion

The Feminization of American Christianity At the outset it must be clearly stated that “feminine” is a beautiful quality, when found in women. However, the “Feminist Movement” is an entirely different story.

Silent Sheep: Why Christian Men Tend to Wimp Out

The female principal in a Christian school publicly slanders her pastor. Her attacks on the preacher are brash and frequent. Why did the deacons and men of the church sit idly by, week after week, while this ungodly assault persisted?  A pastor has a visiting evangelist speaking nightly at his church. It comes to the pastor’s attention that the visiting speaker is drinking alcohol after the services.…

Calling the Church Back to the Men

For years we have called men back to church. The time has come to call the church back to the men! I was raised in a liberal denomination, saved via a para-church organization, and finally made my way into a Bible-believing church. Having observed first-hand a vast spectrum of Christianity, I feel it is fair to say that a lot of men simply are not at ease in church for a number of reasons. Not only…

Wanted: Men of God!

A Vision for Revived Male Leadership Years ago a businessman read a book titled, Men of God. He was so impressed with it that he wrote the Chicago publisher and ordered 125 copies. The publisher wrote back, “We are completely out of Men of God. Try Grand Rapids.” Chicago said they had no Men of God! Today we are not completely out of Godly men, but there is room for plenty more. The Psalmist prayed,…

Sissy Men

In order to counter worldly influences, scores of parents made the conscious decision to be “family oriented.” This was prompted by many factors, including the grim statistics among second generation Christians. Desperately concerned for their children, parents are now home schooling around two million children in the United States. Like any reactionary movement, excesses and deficits are not uncommon. I…
