To Be A Christian Man

There are often discussions about how church is unattractive to men, and how there is supposedly a 'shortage' of young guys in our congregations as a result.

I wouldn't disagree that the singy-songy, sharey-carey side of church seems strange and unnatural to your typical bloke, but I think there is a side that really does appeal and strike a chord. I read a Driscoll quote today (from here), and it made me proud and excited to be a Christian man--

“Mars Hill and Acts 29 are going global. We are deadly serious about the great commission and loading all guns to storm hell with the gospel of grace. And we need more men. Nine hundred men. Not boys—men. Real men.”

You may scoff, but that really sends a wave of excitement through me. You don't hear that stuff enough.
