Churches Attracting Followers With Fighting

Many young men find going to church boring, which may explain why MMA ministries are gaining popularity. These ministries teach the gospel and how to beat another man to a pulp. Me likey.

Christianity and fighting don’t exactly go together. I mean, Jesus was taught to turn the other cheek, people. These MMA ministries are trying to show that Jesus was a fighter, metaphorically speaking. I think this is a good approach. Many young men would rather go to a UFC fight than church. Maybe these MMA ministries can help the church regain lost ground.
