Back in 2008, I wrote a post called “Why Men Don’t Go to Church”. It has been a couple of years, and the post remains one of the most viewed on the blog. At the conclusion of the article, I wrote:
It is politically incorrect to be a man in today’s world and in today’s church, men are expected to follow and not lead. This is baloney of the lowest order. Being a Christian man means being a man. I want to lead a church of men, not chickified boys. I want to lead a church where men stand as men, lead as Christ would lead and build the kingdom together.
Guys, don’t put the burden of ministry and leadership on your wives and mothers because you are too lazy, self-absorbed, and emotionally-unstable to rise to the high calling of being a man.
Stop being a whiny little boy. Take off the short pants and put on some jeans.
Be a man. Love and submit to your wife. Pay your bills, raise your kids, and work hard – both inside and outside of the church. Give your wife a man worth loving, and she will thank you. Put your hands to work in the ministry and leadership God has appoint to you, and you will see amazing things happen.
DEFINITON OF CHICKIFICATION:
Chickification does not have to do with women serving and working in the church. It has to do with men who 1) act like little girls, 2) don’t have a backbone, and 3) never take the lead.
