The women don’t encourage men as they are growing and learning to be men. How would it be if you’re a single woman and the men are complaining that there are no good Christian single women in the Church? This should be pretty clear given many of my posts geared toward teaching men how to be men and giving examples of what they need to do to find a godly wife.The two main examples being: my 5 step process to maturity in relationships, andmy detailed timeline and how-to guide to finding a wife.Simply put, most men’s ministries are sad shells of what they could be.Most of the time it’s men getting together maybe once a month to talk to each other about their failings.In other words, become the ideal spouse of your ideal spouse.However, it never hurts to be more attractive than required as that opens up more possibilities.There are a lot of things this epidemic can be blamed on: * the ratio of males to females in the body of Christ is one reason; * the small size of the generation born in the late seventies compared to the baby boom of the early 80’s is another * and the “kiss dating goodbye” teachings of the 90s and early 2000’s where women were taught to never pursue or show interest in a man but just wait patiently is another.[and] Reason #1- People underestimate the difficulties that singles face.
Essentially, the feminization of the church creates an atmosphere to where men are unwelcome.
The atmosphere of worship, teaching, Bible study, and even fellowship is not one that men want to hang out in most of the time.
Women are clogging up all of the leadership positions that men would otherwise use to learn and grow as leaders.
Likewise, the same can be true of the women’s ministries.
This would fulfill the passages of Titus 2 among other discipleship and mentoring passages which are from older men to younger men and older women to younger women.
