It's Not Raining Men

It's odd that it is only after getting married I begin to notice the large number of single Christian women in our churches today. It's not because I regret my choice – far from it – but I'm beginning to wonder where all the Christian men have gone.
They seem to be an endangered species, these Christian men. Throughout my years in church I've known so many who've walked the halls and slipped out the doors. It's been argued that women are more predisposed to the idea of a God and religion, but I don't buy that. It is society that has made men the egoistical bastard (forgive the language, but I simply had to keep the terminlogy authentic) they are. Even from the days of old, when the Tower of Babel was being constructed, men had always been blinded by ambition.
<blockquote>"Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth." – Genesis 11:4</blockquote>
So why are there so few Christian men? Is it solely because of the pursuit of ambition? Or do they face more temptations than Christian women? As a Christian male myself I'm aware of the things I face, but I'm not sure if the women have it any easier.
What makes them stick, and us fall away?
