BRING BACK OUR MEN#
Someone discussed this on a singles platform I belong to. I found it amusing and revealing and decided to share it here.
Of course the slogan, Bring back our girls# has been used in connection with the girls kidnapped from Chibok in Northern Nigeria.
But this time, we are going to discuss another group of missing people. THE MEN! Where are they?
You may wonder, “what a question!” Of course, there are men every where. You can go to Oshodi Oke in Lagos and pick one? Really? Just like that?
A friend travelled abroad and remarked that most of the men she met are gay and she was wondering where she could find a “straight” That bad?
The question is, “Are the men missing? ” An interesting piece of scripture gives another dimension to this budding controversy.
“And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach. ”
Does this scripture point to the truth that someday, there will be a shortage of men? Are we experiencing it now? Where it is common place to meet ladies in their 40s and 50s who have NEVER BEEN MARRIED? Women who have it all:beauty, brains, good breeding, integrity, Godly attributes, good jobs and just cannot get married? Women who are so pushed to the wall that they are forced to propose to a man? Women who endure all sorts of negative treatment from men because they are desperate to answer ‘Mrs’?
If you go to an average singles programme, especially one for mature singles of 30 years and above, you are likely to find a ratio of 80 ladies to 20 men if not more. And the men would feel “blessed among women”
It is becoming obvious that there are more single women in the church than outside. Could it be because the Christian ladies are not allowed to “delight men between the linen sheets?” Is purity a plus or does it work against them?
So many questions begging for answers.
I attended a mature singles vigil where the men were asked to sit on one side and the women on the other. Then the pastor in charge asked a very RELEVANT question:
“Men, what is happening? Why are you keeping these women waiting? ”
That same question I ask today. To the few men who are not missing in action. Tell the women, “wuz up.”
We are eager to hear from you.
