Why Men do not go to Church (1899) by Cortland Myers ★★

The imbalance of men vs. women in the Church was a painfully obvious thing by the end of the 19th century. Numerous Presidents were noted to be Christians but not interested in going to Church or becoming members while their wives did. This book misses the mark by miles. Taking in the low numbers of men compared to high numbers of women in attendance Myers asks the question, "Where are the men?" The correct question should be, "Why are there more women?" The answer I think is plain. The biblical doctrine of manhood and all its tenets were suppressed, forgotten, ...

Did Deborah Lead Men?

No, Deborah did not have authority over men nor did she arise as a teacher, priest, ruler, or queen in Israel. She prophesied and said herself, in case it wasn't clear, I, Deborah, arose as a mother in Israel. (Judges 5:7) Did we forget what the definition of "mother" was in patriarchal Israel? We all know how patriarchal it was, right? Did we forget that women were not allowed to serve in the tabernacle or temple and that they could only serve at the entrance? Moreover, he made the laver of bronze with its base of bronze, from the mirrors ...

About

I grew up in far-left Portland, OR fatherless and in a broken, dysfunctional family. As society grows in its tyranny against the boys, the young men, and the old men, pushing more and more of them over the edge to everyone’s destruction, God has led me to set my face like emery harder than flint and fight back. Not having so much as a lick of advantage, privilege, or voice I became a self-made mechanic, outdoor guide, craftsman, cross-cultural expert, linguist, mentor, teacher, and writer. I have been passionate about ministry to men for over 15 years mentoring youth, organizing men’s groups, outdoor clubs reaching over a thousand members, volunteering at numerous non-profits for recovering men, youth at risk, developmentally disabled, Indian youth, and even refugee kids around the world. I hold a self-paid B.A. degree with a high GPA even at a liberal college where multiple feminist teachers marked my papers down and gave me C’s for taking Christian perspectives (they can blame Frederick Douglass for that). I’ve formally studied German in Germany, and Islam and Palestinian Arabic in Jerusalem almost all on my own dime. I’ve performed graduate work at Multnomah Biblical Seminary for as long as I could afford it (and stand it). I learned to read the Scriptures in Greek and Hebrew on my own, lived and ministered in Africa, Europe, the South Pacific, and the Middle East, traveled to nearly 40 countries and authored two extensive works on biblical manhood and womanhood consisting of over 700 pages, 222,000 words, sourcing hundreds of articles and books, and thousands of hours of research and writing over ten years–the equivalent of two PhD dissertations–each with no funding, no commissioning, and no publishing contracts. Because the only approval and help you need to do such things is God’s.
