I know a lot of men that love the Lord but often say they are not thrilled with church....Why?

1) Overbearing Pastors
2) Church is too dressy
3) Programs are geared toward women
4) Not enough ministry and too much fund raising and fluff
5) Other

I agree I know of many over-sexed pastors sleeping with members, this TOO is a major deterrent to men coming to these churches where PIMPIN is going on!
Blessings on you my brother.

I like going to church and I am a man.

Men in general like going to hell........this could be the only reason. This is my opinion, I have the scriptures on the heart can only love 1 master at a time. Men get mastered by God or things. You will cling to one and despise the other. Matthew 6:24

The list of topics are things that we call functions and opportunities that allow people to participate in the local assembly. But if a man or woman falls in love with Jesus Christ........the sharing of spiritual worship with others is usually automatic.
A footnote to my last post,
Churches are like restraunts...........some places that serve food are packed out and people go there all the time. Other places that serve food are empty and closing down. Have people stopped going out to eat ? Whether or not they are at your place is usually the big question. Men are going to church. Men do attend church somewhere every Sunday. Now, whether or not more men should go to church ?? The answer is yes - we have worked to do.

Good topic, be blessed. I need to go fishing for more brothers........
Most Black churches have one thing in common, NO MEN! I have heard black pastor’s talk about how much more cooperative women are than men are when leading them. I think this is an excuse to not have to deal with the strong personalities of men. Men are born to lead and deal with problems. Many pastors are insecure and don’t like having strong men in their churches, and that is why their churches are dying! David led Israel primarily due to the fact that he had a forum of Mighty Men! In David’s later years he wrote a chapter of appreciation about the exploits of these men. No great leader can really be great without great MEN following them and also leading WITH them, Moses had Joshua to assist him, and Joshua was NO PUNK! He was a strong man of faith himself! Moses didn’t act intimidated by the fact that Joshua was a mighty man of God, Moses appreciated it! The main reason the Nation of Islam is so appealing to Black men is that is speaks to what men appreciate…STRENGTH! Black pastors WAKE UP and realize you need strong men to HELP you lead! There are too many limp wristed men in our churches! It is no wonder our sisters are facing a crisis in the area of finding a husband! A man must be discipled to not only grow in Christ, but grow as a leader in the body.
(II Samuel 23)
Too often a pastor tries to be a one-man show; the church will always suffer under this kind of leadership! Usually this stems from insecurity and jealousy on the pastor’s part. If you are the Pastor NO ONE can take that away from you! You must be secure in your office; you need other minister’s help! The Pastor needs disciples to bring lost souls to be fed, Teachers have to be there to help disciple saints, and prophets need to bring a Word in season.
Let me answer your question,ALL THE ABOVE.

Some men would rather sit through a ball game than sit in church. If u watch real closely you'll see men looking at their watches or sitting uncomfortable in their chair.
DEFINITELY #3.

Jesus is always portrayed as this soft man who always plays with the children, and is soft spoken. That is NOT the Lord of the Bible. Jesus was a MAN'S MAN, who spoke with authority. This is what I do not like about going to church. I need a MAN to lead me, and to be my savior, NOT some sissy Jesus. I want the REAL MAN, JESUS!
Agreed
I agree with most of what everyone has said. The Church going experience needs to be more interactive for the Brothers. We have a need to be physically involved. Truthfully Our Women are more spiritually in tune with God than the Brothers. Excellent subject matter, I am new to this site, but I recommend that you Sir do not let this topic die.
Men are NOT less spiritual than women, women are MORE emotional, emotional doesn't have anything to do with love, men project love by ACTION. If there is NO action in church...men aint going. Men need to give out food, help old people, visit the sick..ect. Real men need ACTION pastors are making men act like WOMEN!
I disagree because men serve in the military and do it all the time, the problem is INSECURE pastors that can't deal with Alpha males! Good leaders (Like David) can handle mighty men! Weak leaders want WEAK men (Butt kissers), I spent 23 years in the military...NO men have NO problem following STRONG men!
