Does a loving God really send people to Hell?

Church is boring. It’s irrelevant. It’s full of hypocrites. You’ve heard the excuses – now learn the REAL reasons men and boys are fleeing the church. Did you know Christianity is the only world religion with a chronic shortage of men? In his book Why Men Hate Going to Church, (Thomas Nelson, ISBN# 978-0-7852-3215-5) David Murrow identifies the barriers to male participation and explains why it’s so hard to motivate the men who DO go to church. He’ll bring to Mid-Morning an inside look at the ways some congregations do more than call men back to church…they call the church back to men.
