Episode 5: Nice Guys vs. Good Men


God Didn’t Create You to Be a ‘Nice Christian Guy’…


Have you ever heard this popular definition of Church:

“Church is a nice place where nice people gather every week to hear a nice sermon by a nice man teaching them how to be nicer to one another.”


Although you might be chuckling right now, this belief about Christianity is no laughing matter – especially for men.


In fact, it’s this way of doing Church that has caused many Christian Men to believe that God requires them to be nice guys.


Nothing could be further from the Truth!


In this week’s episode, we will tackle a subject tailored for today’s Christian men, that ladies will enjoy as well. We will look at the differences between nice guys and good men; and as we will see…


God doesn’t want us men to be nice, HE wants us to be good – and there is a world of difference.



God is looking for “A Few Good Men.”

Are you one of them?


In This Episode You Will:


♦ Learn 10 key differences between Nice Guys and Good Men

♦ Be encouraged to pursue Goodness for goodness’ sake

♦ Learn why ‘Nice guys finish last.’

♦ Even get insights from a woman’s perspective on this manly subject!
