Why Did Sinners Go to Jesus?

For many years I have wondered why certain kinds of people flocked to Jesus and why those same kinds of people do not flock to the church today. Notice this, “Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him” (Luke 15:1).
I am not arguing that those people never go to the church, but they do not go in the large numbers as they did in the first century. Why is that? What did they see in Jesus that they do not see in the church?
What kind of people do you attract?
