Let me tell you exactly how to spot a godly man vs worldly man. One may think that it would be effortless to tell the difference but, for some reason, for some women, it is not. I also encourage you to check out my blog on how to spot the real Boaz over the counterfeit, by clicking here.
#1 Godly Man vs Worldly Man ~ The primary difference
Sad to say that so many women do not know the difference between a godly man or a worldly man because they are stuck between being godly and worldly. As I said in my blog about being a godly woman. If you want to attract a godly man then you need to be what you attract. Meaning that you cannot walk around letting it all hang out acting too hot to trot, thinking that a godly man is going to be attracted to you, because that is not likely.
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14
If you are a godly woman then you want a godly man, ideally, this type of relationship will strengthen the relationship you have with God, but a worldly man will just take you away from God. He is not on the path to God himself so how in the world will he direct you to God?

A Godly Man Vs Worldly man ~ #2 How they view sex
I once had a conversation with someone regarding me being celibate. She thought it was a foolish expectation of me because what man is going to wait until marriage to have sex. Especially since I was a single mom that is practicing celibacy (click here to read my blog). She thought no man is going to give me the time of day. But see that is a worldly type of thinking.
A worldly man type of thinking overvalues sex and feels that he cannot fall in love with a woman without out. A godly man seeks God first and knows that God would not want him to fornicate. And so instead of pressuring the woman to have sex, he is willing to wait to have sex with her because of his desire to please God is more significant than the desire to please himself. I actually have a separate blog of celebrities couples who waited to have sex, which you can read here. So it can be done.
Below are examples of godly men who waited to have sex until after marriage.
Ciara and Russel Wilson
Meagan Good and Devon Franklin
Heather and Corneilous Lindsey
#3 Godly Man vs Worldly Man ~ He has a relationship with God
A worldly man may be able to put up a front. Sometimes they mask themselves as godly men because they know that is what you want and so they pretend to be what you want to get you.
BUT the worldly man can only fake the funk for so long. You see a godly man actually has a relationship with God and so you can tell by the way he acts, the way he treats you, and the way he values you.
A worldly man is like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He may try to dress up like a sheep, but he is a wolf. And like any wolf that is dressed like a sheep, if you look at it from afar the worldly man will look like a sheep. But the closer you get to it, you can tell that it is, in fact, a wolf dressed like a sheep.
Matthew 7:15 states “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”
A prophet, in this case, is the worldly man. He is a wolf that does not want any good for you. He does not want to marry you but only have sex with you, he does not have a relationship with God but just pretends that he does so that he can have sex with you, and when you really start to get up close and personal with him you will see that there is nothing godly about him.
He does not pray, he does not know anything in the Bible, he is a liar, he does drugs, he tries to get you to do drugs, he is a cheater or any of the works of the flesh that you can think about. These are all things that are not of God. So he can say that he is a godly man all he wants to. BUT the proof is in the pudding.
A wolf can only hide for so long, but eventually, their true colors will shine through. On the other hand, a godly man is who he says he is. You do not have to push a godly man toward God because he is already there.
True story (you can see my dating story here). I went out on a date with a guy, he said he was Christian, talked about Joel Osteen, and put up a good front for the first few minutes of a date. The second half of the date consisted of him molesting me and trying to get me to go back to his hot tub in his hotel room. SEE a wolf always reveals himself. Which I also have a video on that you can watch below.
A Godly Man Vs Worldly man ~ #4 A Godly man, should push you toward God
Not only is the godly man already with God but he will also want to drive you toward God. A worldly man will tell you things like
“ I do not believe everything that is in the Bible” or “ You act like you love God more than you love me.”
All of these are indications of a worldly man. A godly man will not only believe in the Bible, but he will also read it and know what is in it. A godly man will also want you to love God more than you love him, in fact, he is going to love God more than he loves you.
#5 Godly Man vs Worldly Man ~ Knows that he wants and will not waste your time
A godly man is not fearful of marriage because he knows, that “He who finds a wife finds a good thing.” (Proverbs 18:22). You will know where you stand with a godly man, and it is not a lot of back and forth, indecisiveness, and a lot of wasting your time.
A worldly man will promise to marry you, and at the same time, he knows that he is straight-up lying to your face. The worldly man will have no intention of marrying you and will waste your time years and years on end if you allow him to. Pretending like he wants to move forward with you when really he is just weighing his options with other women.
A worldly man will say things like “why do we have to be married to have sex?” and try to convince you that your godly ways are outdated to get what he wants out of you.
A worldly man may not want to date you, he just wants you to come into his house and, possibly have sex, have no real meaningful conversation, and try to develop a relationship off of superficial stuff.
A godly man is very intentional about his relationships. If he wants to court you or if he wants to get married then he is willing to say and do just that. He will not play games with your head and your heart, and his intentions for you will be made clear. He also is looking for something deeper and tries to determine if you will make a good help meet for him or not.
This is why I recommend you watch my video below on what to look for in a man looking at how Boaz treated Ruth. He was a Godly man and therefore the Godly man that finds you should have some of the same traits.
A Godly Man Vs Worldly man ~ #6 He Will Respect You as his women
A worldly man will have the mentality that he needs to show his woman off. We are living in a social media-driven world where its okay to be naked. Look at Kim K and Kanye West, he has no issue whatsoever letting all his wife’s charms hang out on Instagram and everywhere else. That is a worldly man’s type of thinking. Instead of respecting his wife, he wants to share his woman’s body with the world so that other men could be envious of him.
This is not something a godly man would do.
“I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothes.” 1 Timothy 2:9
A godly man will understand and respect a woman that is not letting everything that the good Lord gave her hang out. A godly man will also respect a woman that is not out here trying to look overly sexy for attention.
If you are a woman flaunting for the gram half-naked on the internet, spending all her money on Birkin bags and expensive clothes, a godly man will detest that. And he would rather have his woman put some clothes on and not try to draw the attention of other men by the way that she dresses.
#7 Godly Man vs Worldly Man ~ How He Will Love You
A godly man knows the meaning of love. Like Ephesians 5:25 he will love you like Christ loves the church, willing to give himself up for you (also read my blog here). The type of love that a godly man display is patient and kind just like it says in 1 Corinthians 13:4-13.
A worldly man’s love is very shallow and very fickle. As soon as he marries you when he is tired of you or wants to trade you in for a newer model he will. He says that he loves you, but his love is just a superficial type of love. Contingent upon himself and how you make him feel.
As soon as things go south in a relationship, he is ready to break up with you or cheats on you. Getting into a marriage with this man is very dangerous because instead of working through the tough times in marriage as soon as things get tough he is ready to divorce you and move on to the next.
I hope these tips gave you some things to look for when it comes to a godly man vs a worldly man. I think so many times where are surrounded by worldly men that we no longer believe the godly man is out there. But he is, and if you are a godly woman then know that at the right time your godly man will find you. Just remember, never settle for a worldly man because you are desperate because you will only hurt yourself in the long run.
