For most men, the true measure of manhood has been distorted, minimalized or altogether subverted. Gillis clears the air as he reveals the one and only true measure of manhood.


Temperature is measured in degrees

Weight is measured in pounds

Speed is measured by miles per hour

Liquid is measured in ounces

Distance is measured by miles

Time is measured in hours

Hard drives are measured by megabytes

Pressure is measured by PSI

Genius is measured by IQ

True manhood is measured in virtues...

This is excellent but you forgot my brother, Love is measured by God, The spirit is measured by the soul, humanity is measured by the wings that we behold, and last man is judged by God,

Men, as women, are being called to re-estabish themselves in context.
It is a challenge; it can be achieved if we will stretch for the courage to find our way back to community.

I like this... the ego of man, is slowly destroying who we are and what we should become...
