Video: Is church for girly men?

When I was putting together a blog post about an emotional homecoming at the Southwest Church of Christ in Jonesboro, Ark., I came across a unique video on the congregation’s website that dispels a lot of the excuses people have for not coming to church.
My favorite part of the video, about one minute in, addresses the criticism, “Church is for wimpy, girly men.”
If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth a look.

    Is church for girly men?
    Well let me just say that the Christian man in the early church was the “He-Man” of the day. Nothing has changed.
    Real men love Yeshua (Jesus).

    This video is the bomb (as the kids say)! It should be on primetime TV across the globe. The Church of Christ rocks!

    That’s a beautiful video! Elegant in its simplicity and direct, I don’t know how it can’t appeal to everyone. Super job!

    In followup, as for church being for “girly men,” my Savior was definitely not a girly man. Not many he-men could take the beating alone that he took before the crucifixion and survive.

    I was a homeless once upon a time, nobody lend me a hand except one “girly-guy” that invited me to his congregation, ever since I step a foot there, I felt the love and the help starts coming the way I never expect it. Now, after many years assisting to this congregation, I’ll never be the same again because the LORD JESUS truly lives in the lives of those who really love the LORD!!!
