Ever wonder why there's so few man in "church" now a days?

Ever wonder why there's so few man in church now a days?

Was it because there is a lack of excitement in church that fails to attract man?

Come on! if you need more man you gotta have more entertainment!

And so you try different means to "attract" man to church...

And while many come because of the novelty effect. Many of them left because the novelty effect wear off.

Man does not come to church because of entertainment!

They have entertainment you know not of. If it were for entertainment, they would rather go to a circus instead of coming to church!

Don't they have nothing better to do than to come to church to get entertain?

The world already have so much entertainment to lure people away from God.

Why are churches competing with the world using the same vice that Satan use to lure people away from God?

Where is the honor due God? People come to church not because of entertainment but for the sole purpose of knowing God!

If man do come to church despite of no entertainment. You know the true reason why they came to church.

A church that build on sand and not on the solid rock of God's word is not the church of Christ!

You man of little faith!

Matthew 21:13
New King James Version (NKJV)
13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’[a] but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’”[b]

John 10:27
New King James Version (NKJV)
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

Matthew 18:6
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
6 but (A)whoever (B)causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it [a]would be better for him to have a [b]heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.

Matthew 7:22-23
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
22 (A)Many will say to Me on (B)that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many [a]miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; (C)depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

Malachi 1:6
“A son honors his father,
And a servant his master.
If then I am the Father,
Where is My honor?
And if I am a Master,
Where is My reverence?
Says the Lord of hosts
To you priests who despise My name.
Yet you say, ‘In what way have we despised Your name?’

Zechariah 7:5
New King James Version (NKJV)
“Say to all the people of the land, and to the priests: ‘When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh months during those seventy years, did you really fast for Me—for Me?

What if the Lord wants Gideon to attack the Midianites with just 300 soldier and gain victory against 135,000 Midianites army, what has that got to do with you?

Judges 7:7
New Living Translation (NLT)
The Lord told Gideon, “With these 300 men I will rescue you and give you victory over the Midianites. Send all the others home.”

What if the Lord wants the church with only 100 people to be save because their faith is base on the solid rock of His word. While 10000 people in mega churches to be lost because their heart was not for Him. What has that got to do with you?

Is God being unfair? He have mercy on whom He have mercy. For His sake for His own sake He will not let His name be profane and give His glory to entertainment!

Matthew 20:15
New Living Translation (NLT)
15 Is it against the law for me to do what I want with my money? Should you be jealous because I am kind to others?’

Romans 9:20
New King James Version (NKJV)
20 But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?”
Exodus 33:19
New International Version (NIV)
...I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.(C)

Isaiah 48:11
New King James Version (NKJV)
11 For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it;
For how should My name be profaned?
And I will not give My glory to another.

Romans 11:4-8
New Living Translation (NLT)
And do you remember God’s reply? He said, “No, I have 7,000 others who have never bowed down to Baal!”[a] It is the same today, for a few of the people of Israel[b] have remained faithful because of God’s grace—his undeserved kindness in choosing them. And since it is through God’s kindness, then it is not by their good works. For in that case, God’s grace would not be what it really is—free and undeserved.
So this is the situation: Most of the people of Israel have not found the favor of God they are looking for so earnestly. A few have—the ones God has chosen—but the hearts of the rest were hardened. As the Scriptures say,
“God has put them into a deep sleep.
To this day he has shut their eyes so they do not see,
    and closed their ears so they do not hear.”[c]
