Driving Men Away From Christianity

It's been reported just 35% of American men say they attend church weekly & women make up more than 60% of the typical congregation on a given Sunday. What is it about modern Christianity that's driving men away?

Moderator - If the modern church was Biblical, the men would be there. The church I attend seems to be around 50/50.

James my friend, I must tell you it seems as if you are very aggressive toward those who disagree with you. Pray before you make comments towards others and be certain you do not insult and call names, that is not proper for those who walk in the love of God.
---willa5568 on 4/19/11

Great points Donna, a lot of wisdom in your answer. :)

JamesL-- I'd very much like to see a more balanced ministry in the church (not a man's church and a woman's church) esp. Bible studies etc. As I've said before, even as a woman (and I'm not the only one) I avoid women's functions that lean on emotional responses as evidence of spirituality.

You complained first, that there were not enough things that appeal to men, manly men.
But you add that you want more that appeals to the whole church.(Amen to that).
In either case, men (who according to scripture SHOULD lead) or at least couples, must be the ones to get the ball rolling.
Change takes time, prayer and perseverance, but it's not impossible.

I believe when one of us sees a need for something we should bring it up to the pastor. After my wife died, I learned how hard it was for women to speak to man, because many would judge them if they saw them talking to someone. Women judge other women harder then they do man. So I suggested to the pastor the need and he told me to start a group for singles. There were at least 200 single mom's and dads out of 1,000 members. We all got together for dinner every two weeks. Some married couples would cook and serve the meals. This group gave everyone a chance to meet and talk to other sisters without everyone judging us. The group was good way for singles to talk and meet other single people from our own church.

Look, buddy.

This thread has been here for 5 years and you had nothing to say about it until I called your TULIP unbiblical.

Stalking me from topic to topic doesn't make your false teaching any more relevant.

It's obvious that you haven't read all that I've posted in this thread or else you would have kept that drivel to yourself.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself. This isn't the first time you've tried dragging your hurt feelings into another blog.

Grow up and act like a man, not a 12 year old kid.

Willa, I agree with you. Many man have the wrong idea about attending Church. Man and women of God should be passionate about going to learn about the Lord. But many always complain no matter what. They need to stop whining and start doing something, like starting programs instead of complaining. Then, James says,
"And the truth is that no where in scripture are we called to have a deep, intimate, personal, romantic relationship with God."
Wow, that's just too much. James complains about how much we should love God. If they feel the sisters are driving man away with their vicious potlucks, don't go to them. If you have to be told how much to love God, then you are in the wrong place. Because you should already.
---Mark_V. on 4/19/11

Please see how intimate the word fellowship can be in the greek. Intimate from the Webster's dictionary: Characterized by, involving, or arising from close personal connection or experience. Or coarse it can mean sexual but you see I hope that is not the only thing it means and I do not think that is how we should take it.

//If you could buy lottery tickets,beer,porn,naked women,food,football and other sports were available. //

ironically, we are seeing more and more men in the church with these exact problems. could it be that the current church men are neither real men at church nor at home.

Give me a couple of men and women, wood for a new steps for widow Johnson, a bible, and a few sandwiches, and you can keep your "praise and worship" songs and the "prophetic dancing" and your 'men' (and womyn) with behaviors that they have to hide and feminize.

in our church, there is no need for a 'love offering'...just love.
---aka on 4/18/11

I'm not trying to cast blame. Regardless of who's "fault" it may or may not be, that is somewhat irrelevant. The point is not who is at fault

As for starting something, that's good. But we are not supposed to be two churches, one for men and one for women. What happens when the men and women are together, and a man feels out of place with all the feminine lingo and expectations?

A side activity will not keep men in the church when the activity is over.

Since the church is overly feminine, it is imperative that women become involved in helping to create an atmosphere conducive to males.

I know from past experience that creating any kind of change is nearly impossible
---James_L on 4/18/11

James L--Men will attend whatever provides what they need spiritually. Maybe you "manly" men need to start something...since you know what appeals to other men.

It's easy to just blame the pastor. But maybe it's something YOU can correct.
---Donna66 on 4/18/11


I agree with you that men need to be more proactive in gathering together the men of the church. But then what's gonna keep them?

Are men going to just attend ministry outreaches, or are they going to become involved in the building up of the entire congregation?

When the pastor has a feminine appeal in his sermons, and 85% of the men act more like women than men, then what? Real men are turned off.

Men are rational, logical, work-focused thinkers. Real men love truth. And the truth is that no where in scripture are we called to have a deep, intimate, personal, romantic relationship with God.

But that offends a lot of women, so the truth is lacking.
---James_L on 4/18/11

Another view:Nothing is really driving men away from church. If you could buy lottery tickets,beer,porn,naked women,food,football and other sports were available. You would see attendance increase by 1000 fold. There would be so much dust and dirt in the churchyard, you could not find the door.
---Robyn on 4/18/11

willa5568--- it is up to the men to start some men's fellowship or Bible study or whatever. Women can't do it!
I wonder sometimes why male pastors don't seem to take the bull by the horns in this area.
---Donna66 on 4/18/11


It is very easy to put blame on women, but I ask you, who started the mens breakfast? Was it not the men in the church. Why do you blame the men because we do not plan for more fellowship than we do? If it was important to us, (which it is for me) then we would make it a priority.
Also if you feel this way talk to the Pastor, why hold what you feel inside when something can be done. You may not get the results you want but you are responsible to do so if you see a problem in the church.
This goes for all of us men. Please remember there is no requirement to hug, you can just shake hands like most of us do with strangers. And consider this in Jesus' time that greeted with a kiss, so is it really feminine to hug?

Want to scourge some out in your vicinity. Learn your Bible...they don't. Use the prophets for witness....always have two scriptural witnesses. This makes them furious,and eventually runs them off...or they learn something and become what they profess in the first place.

Warwick --- It's not just men who are uncomfortable hugging a stranger because they are commanded to! I don't even like hugging a friend because I'm "told" to.(a hug should be spontaneous, or it is meaningless). I am quite capable of loving my neighbor without feeling the need to hug!

And I'm not the only woman I know who avoids some women' s retreats and other special meetings, because I am not a crier! Seems crying is an unspoken requirement at many woman's functions. I can be very moved yet not shed a tear! (many women can't understand). I'll hear the speakers on tape afterward, thanks.

We desparately need more male influence in the church!

Warwick and aka,


I do have a "thick male ego"

Do you know why?? Because I Am A Man. I am supposed to have. If you should care to read everything I wrote, you would see an appeal to be less single-sex oriented toward a female ego, and more conducive to a male ego. That way there is a balance.

Is Jesus Lord of females, or Lord of all?

You say that females are half the population, right on.

But church is geared 98% toward women. Why do you get so offended when someone points this out?

When was the last time your church had a Men's event other than once a month breakfast?

I say get off your female ego and open up your over-imaginative women's club to men
---James_L on 4/17/11

James, you need to get over yourself and your thick male ego and realize that women are half the population, sorry if this "woman" offends you. ---Mary on 4/16/11

are women getting over their thin female ego?

It is not women that keep men away. A true woman cannot keep a man away with fire or ice.

It is womyn and their worldly castrated men that keep us away.

In the 60% that do attend church are 90% girls in developed bodies.

Womyn are not only driving men away. In that 40% of women who do not attend, i bet you there are a certain percentage of true woman.

Church is not a building. It is the people that meet at that building.
---aka on 4/17/11

James has made some good points. Churches have become 'girly' where men are called to assimilate into a feminine culture where they do not fit. We are different and men need to be man just as much as women need to be women.

Very few men want to turn to the stranger beside them and hug them when commanded to do so. Our church recently watched 2 videos on the feminization of church and many of the women in church saw the truth of this.

Indeed James where has the Jesus who turned over the tables gone? He has been replaced with the feminine wimpy Jesus depicted with sheep and patting children.

Do you want more men in the church? Them make it a place where men, as well as women, will feel comfortable.

I don't believe that.

What men Don't like is having to participate in all the girly activities that do nothing but pass the time of an over-imaginative woman.

"Larry, Bill, Dave, would you set up these tables for the tea party we're having for the little girls in the church?"

Men also don't like the female lingo in church, like "fall in love with Jesus", "be intimate with Jesus", etc.

Men don't want to be intimate with a man.

Robyn-- You say ""real men can be humble, they can cry". How many men see it the same way? YOU may love him for these traits
(and being a woman, I'd mostly agree).
But some of what makes that pastor appeal to you and me, might be a real "turn-off" for many men.
Nowhere is it written that tears are a sign of holiness.
---Donna66 on 4/16/11

Real men can love Christ, they can be humble, they can cry. My pastor cries when the Spirit moves him. I love this about him. It makes a man stronger when he allows himself to be humble and vulnerable to the Lord. If a man is humble and obedient to the Lord, the woman is doubly blessed, in all areas of her life. God honors and bless those who honor and bless him.

Men are very attracted to being "robots" and 'warriors' in service to The Lord.

I once (about 20 years ago) saw a female divinity student give the Sunday sermon. The sermon was NOT 'fire and brimstone', but about 'brotherhood harmony and honoring GOD'. I went to her afterwards, thanked her and encouraged her.

It is a shame that nothing beyond this partisan "robot" aspect is taught. Men have hearts too, you know. Men would be more enthusiastic if they understood the "living water Godloving ADORATION" aspect as women FEEL IT, but instead many become "backsliders" because of a BROKEN HEART.

Women should be more vocal for the sake of the brethren that are IN CHRIST.

Christianity is peddled as something for timid people, turning the other cheek instead of turning over the tables.

It shouldn't be one or the other. Jesus did both.

Also, the church needs more people and less sheeple

---larry on 4/10/11

The common teachings of "Christianity" with all it's rules/ordinances produces 'spiritual ROBOTS', not 'free thinking' individuals.

Women are overwhelmingly attracted to the "LOVING A FATHER FIGURE" aspect of "Christianity" (the IDEAL Godlover). Women understand "ADORATION love" (which most impressed Jesus) and conceptually understand the "LIVING water" used to wet Jesus's feet...

Luke 7:44
"but she has wet my feet with her tears".

...but MEN simply can't see past that deceptive "ROBOT" lie (to women, the "robot" aspect is almost non-existent, but is far outshadowed by "the greatest of these" (1 Corinthians 13:13).

This is not surprising. Women have always been the backbone of society. The hand that rocks the cradle,rules the world. Men took a lot of the credit but the woman was the foundation. Without a woman,man would have no motivation factor to drive him on and upward. We all need a motivation and reason for doing things. Women are the motivators. Also men find it difficult to express love and be humble towards a male figure(Jesus Christ)Until he understand this analogy,becoming a christian will continue to be a mystery to him.

2. There is no power in their words because it is not coming from God but from themselves. As you said there is no leadership teaching, no one to take accountability. So it goes on. If you read most of the questions ask on line here are so rediculous. I don't know how they live as they do. They have no joy, or peace in their lives. They believe they are in control, and in reality they are because the Holy Spirit sure isn't.

Tom2, when I moved to another town I had a lot of trouble finding a good teaching church. Most of them were liberal in their teaching. I joined one and the pastor one day while we were there, told his wife to pull a sermon from the net for the next Sunday. He didn't intend to put any work on his message at all. I found him to be lazy and didn't understand many of the questions I would ask. So I moved on. I think that you are so right in what is happening in the churches today. Its sad, but its true.

Sue, which sport schedules ball games on Sunday morning? How did organizations like the Promise Keepers manage to fill stadiums with men? There's a similar situation in the colleges.

So, obviously the Bible is wrong in that area? According to feminist preachers, it is!

No one would be able to judge the evil if they were engulfed in the same, ladened with its sins and lusts. God has been separating His people, to form a new man, created in righteousness, true holiness, so we will be able to view the matter from a pure standpoint, and render a righteous judgment, thus bring about a correction. Then we will be able to lift up to a higher realm those who are to be corrected and disciplined, until they learn to walk in the right way.

A church where the preacher is a woman should not expect to attract droves of men. Perhaps the low church attendance rate of men can be proportionately linked to the rise in the number of female church leaders.
---ralph7477 on 7/5/06

Men, by nature, are designed to be leaders where women are designed to be followers. This natural desire to lead and be in charge tends to oppose the humility required in allowing the Lord that place of control over their lives. Also, women are generally more relational than men. Since Christianity is essentially a relationship (with Christ) women often have an advantage here.

There are many reasons, but the largest is the obvious hyprocrisy of preachers / followers who do not truly follow.

Q2. God is going to send a deluding influence so many will believe what is false. The correct answer is True.

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 - And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

I don't get it, why would God delude people? What's He trying to prove?

Moderator - These people don't want God and He is letting them have what they desire.

I did some Internet searching on the topic and found source for some stratified data from the The Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life. They have an 18 page pdf file with a lot of interesting charts & demographic data on church attendance and political activity for those who might be interested.
