'A God Fearing Man'

Typical question:- 'What are you looking for in a man?'
Typical answer:- 'He must be tall, handsome, God fearing.....'

Which leads me to ask. What is a God fearing man? Is a God fearing man= A Born again christian?
And I only ask because half the Individuals that be requiring God fearing men don't necessarily appear to be God fearing women themselves. So you want a 'God fearing man' that will fear God and still be kpanshing you every night?
I mean...I'm confused.
Then again, I've been accused of approaching the matter of religion in a strictly black or white way. There are no gray areas for me. It is what it is...

For instance, when people ask me why I don't go to church...this is always my reply---> I don't see the point of going to church if you're not a born again christian/do not plan on giving your life to christ any time soon. Very black POV, I imagine but like I said...it is what it is.
I mean, you go to church on sunday and you praise God, pray for forgiveness, dance and show off your new shoe and bag. Go home and fall into your same ol', same ol' routine and round and round we go. What's the point?
Make I kuku sleep in on sunday morning na....
Oh yeah, people have tried to counter that lil argument of mine with 'Going to church uplifts your spirit and you just never know, you might be touched that day and turn your life over to God'...True that! I can't argue that..it could happen.

So as you can imagine..a 'God fearing man' has never been my top 10 of must have characteristics in a man if God fearing indeed= Born again Christian which I only imagine that it can.

The end.

i so totally see your point...but anyhow e be sha, try to dey go church sometimes...just dont be hypocritical...like some others...in black & white, the ways of Almighty God is so not our ways...my love, church is good...the bible talks about worshiping in the temple, the gathering of the 'saints', belief in His prophets.etc all these, irrespective of our born-againism...let those looking for God fearing men be, let God judge us all

Pastor baroque!

neways, babes want a God-fearing man, simply because it seems like they are very scarce. plus you can argue that a God-fearing man wouldnt do some certain things to you, or most babes want a "working" christian. one that might not be perfect, but is constantly striving to be close.

what is more annoying is that guys especially the ones we call "awon-boys" would kpansh all over town, and when its time to get married, guess where they're headed? to church! to find a God-fearing woman!

You are right on all grounds. I still go to church though. Nice blog!

Baroque said all I wanted to say...

I see your point...God is everywhere..however going to church is still a good thing as Pastor Barouque said :)

I pray wherever i am..sometimes i have all the intention of praying and i forget and leave the house...say i reach the bus stop and remember, i'll pray at the bus stop...a few words between me and God can be done anywhere day or night. Easy xxx

Dont confuse christianity for religion.. Going to church is religion, relationship with God is christianity.. A Godfearing man to me would be one that has a relationship with God, acknowledges that God is real and is able to give God the respect that i due him at all times and in all situations. One that will not overlook the importance of prayer and praise in the home, one that is "consious" of the fact that God is the overall head of the home and not himself(a lack of this knowledge is what causes men to be over controlling and act like touts in their home). A man that recognizes the importance of values and bringing up his children in the fear of God.. That to me is a God fearing man. So.. darl, im sooo sure you want that on ur top 10 list, you just dont know it yet.. ;o)
