The Way a Woman Dresses DOES Matter
by David J. Stewart | December 2012
“...whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed
adultery with her already in his heart.” —Jesus Christ, Matthew 5:28
Photo To Right: Thousands of women in the US and Canada marched in May of 2011 in response to a Toronto police officer's comment that women should try not to dress like "sluts" to avoid being raped or victimised.
Like it or not, that police officer is 100% correct. I am not defending rapists, they should all be hung. But I also believe that women who dress immodestly should be jailed. Whorishly dressed women are corrupting society. Feminism is of the Devil, teaching women that they can do whatever they want. Albeit, reality simply does NOT work that way. If women dress improperly, they are at a higher risk of being sexually victimized (and are putting other females at risk as well) and that will never change. American women have the sinful attitude that they can do as they please without consequence; but there are always consequences.
Last week in India a 23-year-old female student was brutally gang-raped by at least four males on a bus. She was admitted into the the hospital and listed in critical condition. The attack has caused public outrage and riots in Delhi, India...
India gang rape: Delhi bus driver held after attack
December 17, 2012
Indian police have arrested a bus driver in connection with the gang rape of a 23-year-old student on a city bus in the capital, Delhi. A police spokesman said other suspects had been identified from CCTV footage. The student and a male friend she was travelling with were beaten, stripped and thrown out of the bus in the attack on Sunday evening.
The attack has sparked outrage in Delhi, which is often seen as unsafe for women. The capital's rape figures are higher than for other Indian cities of comparable size, correspondents say.
The woman and her friend had boarded the bus from Munirka area and were on their way to Dwarka in south-west Delhi. They were returning after watching a film in a shopping centre in south Delhi, police said. The couple were attacked by "at least four men", police said. The couple have been admitted to hospital, where the woman is said to be in a critical condition.
On Monday, senior police officer Chhaya Sharma appealed to the public to help identify the owner of the bus. Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has promised "strict action" against those responsible.

I heard an angry woman protestor in the news say, “It doesn't matter how women dress” in India, men shouldn't rape them regardless of how they dress. I agree that men ought to be men, regardless of external influences. But the reality of the situation is that men aren't always going to do the right thing. There are evil men and good men in every place in the world. Good and evil always co-exist. May I say, IT DOES MATTER HOW A WOMAN DRESSES!!!
Certainly all forms of abuse are wrong and sinful. I am not defending evil men who prey upon the weak and vulnerable. Those men in the preceding tragic news story should receive the death penalty for their crimes. My heart goes out to the victims. However, it is apparent from all the fuss over the way the woman was dressed that it was indeed an issue. In any society where women dress immodestly, sexual immorality is commonplace, as well as sexual crimes. Any idiot can figure it out. Yet, feminists demand their rights, wanting to dress like sluts and still safely walk down the street at 2 AM in the morning.
The Bible teaches in 1st Timothy 2:9 that women should dress in “modest apparel.” The word modest means “of good behavior.” Hence, the manner in which a woman dresses conveys a messages to others of the type of character she has. There's no way around it. If you dress whorishly, then men will think you are loose morally and don't posses a high moral standard. A full-length dress on the other hand, says that you care about morality. Women who dress modestly are laughed at, ridiculed, and made fun of by wicked people. The question is, do you want to please God? Revelation 4:11 says that we were all created to please God. Hebrews 11:6 teaches that only by faith can we please God. Faith is obeying the Bible. All that we do (or don't do) because we fear God is by faith. A lady who has faith in God (or not) shows it by the way she clothes herself. Clothing speaks 1,000 words. A woman who takes her clothes off to sell a music album cannot be trusted. She has shady character, willing to hurt others morally to make money. IT DOES MATTER HOW YOU DRESS!
In May of 2011 feminist women across America and Canada went ballistic, angry over a police officer's honest statement that immodestly dressed women invited attackers. Women who have been Americanized have unrealistic ideas of what freedom means, and how the real world works. America is absolutely plagued with sexual sins and heinous crimes because of the prevalence of lewd MTV music videos, filthy-minded television programming, sex-ed in public schools and sexual-suggestiveness advertising everywhere we turn these days. Fool-headed feminists don't listen to helpful police advice, just like they don't listen to God in the Bible.
The Lord commands all women to dress in modest apparel (1st Timothy 2:9). That means you if you're a woman. The Police chief in Delhi knows that women who dress immodestly attract the wrong kind of attention from men. Ridding the earth of men is not the answer; but women putting their clothes back on (and keeping them on) in public is good advice and certainly will reduce the level of sexual crimes. Women who demand the right to dress whorishly, but still don't want to be attacked, are living in a fantasy world. I'll bet the women who was gang raped will wear clothes from now on. It shouldn't have to cost a person something to realize that they were wrong, but that's life. We all learn things the hard way to some extent.
Taylor Swift Is Pulling On The Same Rope As The Devil
I saw a 60-minutes special yesterday featuring Taylor Swift. The interviewer called Taylor Swift “a spiritual leader” in America to millions of youth. Miss Swift agreed and said she feels that it's her responsibility to recognize her tremendous power of influence as a role model over kids today. I've been saying that for a long time, that is, that young rebels like Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry have a massive influence on children and teens today, especially young girls. “A SPIRITUAL LEADER”... that's exactly what 60-Minutes called her, and it's very true. 60-Minutes praised Taylor Swift for not ending up in the tabloids for wrong doing; yet Taylor Swift needs to be publicly reprimanded and exposed for exposing herself bodily in her music videos and concerts. One of Swift's most popular songs is titled, FEARLESS. Evidently Taylor Swift is FEARLESS, because she certainly doesn't fear the God of the Bible who told her to dress modestly (1st Timothy 2:9). It's all about the love of money (1st Timothy 6:10).
Walt Disney sinfully promotes fornication in the lives of teenagers, teaching “boys” to score, filming 12 and 13 year old girls in immodest clothing, decked-out like glamour-girl whores, suggestive bodily positions and continual dirty-minded talk. No wonder it was reported in national news in December of 2012 that 22 public high-schools in Philadelphia are installing condom dispensers because of the epidemic of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD's) amongst adolescents today. Teens account for 25% of all venereal disease in the city of Philadelphia...
There is “an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases in adolescents in Philadelphia,” Donald Schwartz, deputy mayor for health and opportunity, told Philly.com.

The United States is a moral nightmare today. What began as seemingly innocent sexually immoral fun in the 1950's in the back-seat of a car at lover's point has escalated into an entire sex-perverted culture of decadence. Take away the Bible from the schools, bring in sex-education, promote sexually-suggestive singers like Taylor Swift, and then watch a nation go to pieces morally. The Playboy philosophy has destroyed America. The teachings in the Bible are not suggestions from God, they are requirements. God's not a friend making suggestions, He's a commander giving orders. God is a friend to those who obey Him. It's not surprising that a liberal who doesn't believe the Bible is also dishonest. Your life is not yours, it is God's. He is our Maker.
An Immoral Society Means More Crime, Which Can Only Lead To A Thug Police State!
You cannot expect a nation's youth to grow up surrounded by sex, sex, sex and become decent, virtuous and morally responsible citizens. It simply cannot happen. And so we are now living in a cesspool in America of sexual perversion, homosexual marriages, pedophilia and every evil under the sun. It can only become much worse as society's moral standards continue to move toward all-out paganism. And along with the increase in immorality is more crime, which can only lead to a Police State to combat an out-of-control wicked society. The entire nation is going to become one giant prison.
One of the top shows on television these days is LAW AND ORDER which frequently features sexual crimes. People can't get enough of anything that's sexual, perverted and immoral. I thank God that I don't have TV; yet, ironically, I still see plenty of it because there's a TV everywhere these days. By not watching TV on a regular basis, it becomes very obvious how evil it's all becoming each year. The globalists want to push everything to the limit—perverting society, destroying our culture, bankrupting our economy, tearing marriages apart, breaking apart families and generating distrust toward everyone through paranoia news and reality shows.
The DISCOVERY channel has produced a show titled, “Who Did You Really Marry?” Other shows attempt to take the viewer into the mind of a serial-killer or rapist. Other programs question who the neighbor is next door to you, or can you really trust your local church minister? Such shows are intended to plant seeds of doubt, distrust and paranoia throughout American society. It's not difficult to see what is happening in America, that is, the evil powers behind the New World Order want to destroy America in every way possible. A house divided cannot stand. America is divided on everything, from politics to moral issues. Television has led U.S. society to be paranoid and distrustful of everyone, even their spouse and family. People are unknowingly being mind-programmed.
Gun rights are being hotly debated right now in the U.S., but the Globalists will get their way eventually, it's just a matter of time. Americans will be disarmed. The Globalists are evil beyond imagination, murdering tens-of-millions of people (by wars they start and finance) just to fill their coffers with more money and power. The mainstream newsmedia is their primary weapon, having incredible power over the souls of men. I always watch the news objectively, that is, looking for their angle, the deceit in their reporting, and I usually find it right away since I have researched the New World Order for a decade. Everything has to be politically correct these days, feeding the immoral agendas of the sick-minded elite. It's quite easy for the globalists to accomplish their destructive goals, by simply promoting and sponsoring anyone and everything that's destructive to our faith in God and our loyalty to parents, marriage, family and nation.
In July of 2011, feminist women in Delhi, India protested in anger over comments made by Delhi's chief of police, who said that women shouldn't be out at 2 AM in the morning if they don't want to be raped...India 'Slutwalk' sex harassment protest held in Delhi
BBC NEWS | July 31, 2011
A rally has taken place in India's capital inspired by the "Slutwalk" protests held in a number of countries. The protest is to challenge the notion that the way a woman looks can excuse sexual abuse or taunting - "Eve teasing" as it is known in India.
Hundreds took part in Delhi, though there was little of the skimpy dressing that has marked protests elsewhere. The protests originated in Canada after a policeman said women could avoid rape by not dressing like "sluts".
'It's our lives'
The BBC's Mark Dummett in Delhi says the organisers are trying to challenge the mindset that the victims of sexual violence are to blame for the crimes committed against them.
He says Delhi can be a very difficult city for women, with sexual harassment commonplace, and rapes and abduction all too frequent.
And according to a recent survey, India remains one of the most dangerous countries in the world for women. One protester told our correspondent: "Every girl has the right to wear whatever she wants, to do whatever she wants to do with her body. It's our lives, our decisions, unless it's harming you, you have no right to say anything."
Another protester said: "There are a lot of problems for women in Delhi because a lot of women do face sexual harassment and just a couple of weeks ago the chief of police of Delhi said that if a women was out after 0200 she was responsible for what happens to her, and I don't think that's the right attitude."
Most of the marchers in Delhi were soberly dressed in jeans and T-shirts or traditional shalwar kameez. India recorded almost 22,000 rape cases in 2008, 18% up on 2004, the National Crime Records Bureau says.

Women are making unreasonable demands, wanting to dress immodestly, walk city streets after midnight, and expect to be perfectly safe. That's not reality. The threat of rape will always exist, even if a woman dresses properly. Albeit, since men are aroused by sight, it is common sense that a woman should never deliberately expose her body to entice men. To do so is not only cruel, but asking for trouble. And worse, you are laying up judgment against yourself for judgment day. On that day we will all stand before God and give account of our life.
Do Sluts Get What They Deserve?
I would never say something unkind like that. I know feminist women get angry at even the thought that the woman who was raped might be at fault in the least way; but the truth is that she was in part to blame if she was dressed provocatively in the presence of a group of men. I'm not saying that sluts get what they deserve; but I am saying that women who dress like sluts may be attacked and gang raped because they created lasciviousness (immoral sexual desire) in the hearts of evil men. You never know what someone else is thinking, especially a stranger. Rape has existed since the creation of mankind and will never go away. Women who think they can dress like prostitutes and honestly expect nothing bad to happen are playing with dynamite, a loaded gun, a deadly snake; it's an accident waiting to happen. God is always vindicated and justified. The Bible tells women to cloth themselves modestly for A REASON.
The wicked Playboy philosophy has become a mainstream in American culture, and is one of the largest contributors to the moral demise of our country. Hugh Hefner (founder of Playboy in the early 1950's) has the blood of tens-of-millions of victims of sexual crimes, broken marriages, destroyed homes and ruined lives on his hands. Now his daughter is at the helm as CEO of the company, continuing the wickedness. It's blood money!
The $120,000,000 that 60-miniutes said Taylor Swift has made so far on her 2012 tour is blood money. MILLIONS of people watch Taylor Swift's music videos and concerts. Every time Taylor Swift wildly wiggles her butt on stage into the camera, hundreds (if not thousands) of men's soul are overcome with lust and they go commit sexual immorality—some raping women or little girls, others seeking sex from a prostitute, some beating their wives who aren't as sensual, many committing adultery and end up divorcing. Our nation is falling apart morally, and it was planned that way by the Communists who funded the feminist movement in the 1960's. Sexual liberation is evil.
There are always consequences to sin. Sin always has a price, always! You may not pay it, but someone else will. It may not be today, but payday will come eventually. If nothing else, eternity is coming, and Hebrews 4:13 warns, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” Sin has become commonplace in America. Drunkenness, fornication and sinful partying are no longer considered sinful. Even on the daily news on TV, Rock bands are featured and a nightclub mentality is promoted and praised. Our society is a giant moral toilet-bowl these days. Wickedness is mainstream! What next? What will be the next social low-point?
The truth and fact of the matter is that it certainly DOES matter how a woman dresses. Both the police chief of Delhi, India and the respectable police officer in Canada have spoken publicly about the seriousness of the way women dress in public. It is dangerous for any woman to dress provocatively in public; yet feminist women won't listen to the police who see the consequences of crime (and the cause of crime) every day in their line of work. The police know what causes crime. They're not chauvinist pigs who hate women. Young girls are being taught by television to disrespect their parents, Rock 'N' Roll to everything, party wild and dress like prostitutes.
The Bible speaks in Proverbs 7:10 about the attire of a harlot. Taylor Swift is wearing the attire of a harlot in her music videos and concerts. It is wickedness. She's making so much money and becoming more famous each day that she couldn't care less what God thinks; or else she'd put some more clothes on and stop gyrating sensually for all the sinful world to lust upon. Do you think sexual crimes just started increasing in America for no reason? Let me tell you something... everything happens for a reason!!! It's all the sexually-suggestive singers, television shows, Hollywood movies, magazines, et cetera, that's bringing America down to the pits of hell and damnation.
Where There Are People There Are The Works Of The Flesh
Since pride, lust, rape, sexual immorality and every other sin are bound in the evil human heart, a woman needs to be careful how she dresses and behaves everywhere that she goes. And that goes for every man too! Temptation is everywhere. The works of the flesh are listed in Galatians 5:19-21 and you're going to find them anywhere on this planet where there are people...
Galatians 5:19-21, “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Granted, some geographical locations are better than other (like the country or suburbs verses the inner city), but anyone is capable of anything under the right circumstances. No woman will ever be 100% safe, no matter where she lives. People are people are people. I don't care where you go, you're going to find the human sin-nature and all manner of wickedness. At best, if we want to live in a relatively safe place, then we all need to strive at making the community a morally strong one. MTV (music television) is targeted at teenagers. MTV is totally saturated with sexual promiscuity, inferences to oral-sex and continual filthy-mindedness.
You never know what is going on in someone's mind, which is exactly why women should be very careful about how they dress. Ozzy Osbourne's music is often attributed to the suicide of dozens of youth. Ozzy's famous for his song titled, SUICIDE. Dozens of parents sued Ozzy when their teens commit suicide. The judge said Ozzy wasn't to blame. That's how sin works. The Devil destroys lives, but then the world says it's not his fault. So they blame God instead. The truth is that 99% of the people who listen to Ozzy's heavy-metal music can handle it, but a small percentage cannot. There's always a small percentage of people who can't handle booze, can't handle gambling, or any other vice.
And likewise, there's a small percentage of society that are becoming victims (or victimizing others) because of the sensuality of MTV, and the sexual-suggestiveness of SPIKE TV, VH1 and FOX. Immorality saturates these televisions networks. Why do you think that the globalists are airing mass-murdering reality shows so much? It's because they KNOW that a small percentage of crazies are going to go do it, and they're learning how on television. You cannot continually show mass-murdering movies on TV without it affecting a society adversely. As Christians we need to guard our soul from what we see, hear, where we go, what we choose to think about, et cetera. It does matter!
Do you think that a women prays and reads her Bible, and then puts on a silky short mini-dress up to her bellybutton to be seen in public? Of course not. Taylor Swift is an ungodly heathen, a spoiled-brat at age 23, contributing to the moral destruction of homes across America. Heathens think it's cute for teen girls to dress provocatively. TV executives exploit underaged teen girls for profits. It's evil, generating lasciviousness in the hearts of men, causing sexual sins and crimes of every sort worldwide. It's not innocent fun and good times. Morality is not a trifle matter. Sex sells, which is why Taylor Swift and hundreds of music video whores like her sell their souls for a buck.
Moreover, a woman who fears God will dress modestly because she fully realizes that she must answer to God one day for the way that she dresses. A woman should dress modestly for fear of being attacked; but rather, for fear of God. Ideally, we ought to live right because we love God, but if fear is the only motivation, that is honorable and Biblical. The Bible continually tells us to fear God. There's nothing at all wrong about that. You should fear God. I do. Romans 3:18 says that the sinful world doesn't fear God. It's a very serious matter. This insane generation murders their children, marries homosexuals and thinks that drunkenness is fine if you're not driving a car. It's not ok. God tells us how to live in the Bible, but most people couldn't care less. All God expects from us as Christians is that we try to please Him. No one can be perfect. But the world doesn't even try. END
Heathen World Knows What's
Wrong With Women Wearing Pants
One of the most controversial subjects in America's churches today is pants on women; but there is NO controversy if you believe the Bible. 1st Timothy 2:9 clearly instructs women to dress MODESTLY, i.e., of good behavior. A woman's clothing says MUCH about her character. I guarantee you that women who approve of abortion (i.e., murder) also see no problem with women wearing pants. It's more than coincidence in a nation where most women scoff and laugh at the notion of women dressing modestly, that 53,000,000 of those same women have murdered their own children through abortion.
If you don't want to listen to the Bible, then maybe you'll listen to a secular singer as proof from the unsaved world why pants on women are sin. The following lyrics are from the worldly Hip Hip artist, Chingy, from his 2006 album Hoodstar; the song title is Dem Jeans:Chingy - Dem Jeans Lyrics:
How the he** did you get all of that in dem jeans
How da how da he** did you get all of that in dem jeans
'cause your waist so little and your a** it like wo
'cause your waist so little and your a** it like wo
Back it up a bit
Yeah that's it
'cause I can see your thong
Caramel skin tone...
Let me help you with dem jeans
Baby lay down
How'd you get all that in
How'd you get all that in Dem
How'd you get all that
(Is you talkin to me?)
I bet you had to jump up and down
Just to put 'em on
Bet you had to wiggle it around
Just to put 'em on
Bet you had to lay back on the bed
Just to zip 'em up
Am I right?
Baby that's what's up
Now Now Now
When walkin' girl
And you make it swirl
Its hard for me not to look ...
[ Lyrics found on http://www.metrolyrics.com ]
Hope you ain't up in here with your man ma
I love it when you wiggle it Shake it
Drop it and do your little dance ma
True Religion, 7's...
When you walk away it make me wanna rub it...
How'd you get all that in
How'd you get all that in Dem...
I bet you had to jump up and down
Just to put 'em on
Bet you had to wiggle it around
Just to put 'em on
Bet you had to lay back on the bed
Just to zip 'em up
Am I right?
Baby that's whets up
I don't mean to be rude but I like
The way you move
Got your boy in the mood...
let it show it,
like them curves
make that thing talk when you walk
I'm slurring ma words...
man you working wit a lot.
Only a rebellious woman, who deliberately disobeys the Word of God, would wear pants. It is clear from these unsaved singers why women should not wear pants. Pants on women are adulterous in nature, and cause men to lust and sin. Jesus made this clear in Matthew 5:28, "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."
Women who wear pants deliberately cause men to lust, and commit the sin of adultery. It is this spirit of fornication which has caused tens-of-millions of unwanted pregnancies in the United States, and 48,000,000 abortions in America. Rock-n-Roll, Big Band, and the roaring 20's are much to blame. Along with these swingy types of music came dancing, one of the biggest sins of all. Billy Sunday was right to preach against dancing, and by the way... ALL dancing is dirty dancing unless it's between a husband and wife in the privacy of their home.
The average person today scoffs at the idea that Rock-n-Roll, Satanism, and immoral sex go hand-in-hand, but they certainly do. When Rock-n-Roll came to America, so did pants on women become mainstream. Naturally, feminism, witchcraft, abortion, and homosexuality came as well. Rock-n-Roll is straight from the pits of Hell. ALL rock-n-roll women wear pants. Sexual immorality is a driving theme in rock. Listen to quotes from the rockers themselves...
"Sex is where its at in music... and I like it." (Johnny Bristol)
"I’ve always thought that the main ingredients in rock are sex, really good stage shows and really sassy music, Sex and sass, I think that’s where it’s at." (Debbie Harry, lead singer with Blondie)
"I'm in rock music for the sex and narcotics." (Glenn Frey of 'The Eagles')
"Rock 'n' roll is 99% sex." (John Oates)
"Everyone takes it for granted that rock and roll is
synonymous with sex."
(Chris Stein, lead guitarist with 'Blondie.')
"Rock music is sex. The beat matches the body
(Frank Zappa, superstar of 'Mothers of Invention' fame.)
What more evidence do you need? You are accountable to God ladies for the way you dress, the men you cause to lust, and the sins/crimes they commit as a result.
A Christian Lady Tells Why It's Wrong For Women To Wear Pants
Here's a great explanation of why women shouldn't wear pants from a godly woman..."Modest" means not extreme or bold, and not morally loose. Those can apply to pants, yes; but when I have on a pair of pants, I don't feel that my body is covered. Pants are form-fitting, thus exposing my body. That's just how I feel. The illustration that Cathy Corle uses is two pictures of the same woman. The first one has her in a nice dress. She asked a group of ladies what they noticed about this woman, and they answered her face.
Then she showed them the picture of the same woman in a pair of jeans and asked what they noticed. They said their eyes were immediately drawn to the crotch area! That drove home to me that clothes can emphasize the body or the face; I'd rather have folks, especially men, notice my face and not my body. Again, this is my feeling.
The other thing that convinced me was the doctrine of separation from the world. The fashion of the world is to wear pants (patterned after men's clothing). This wasn't the case until about 100 years ago, when actresses began wearing pant suits that resembled men's suits. Before that, women almost universally wore dresses (I remember my Granny saying that she wore her brother's overalls to pick cotton to keep her legs from getting all scratched up). So the fashion of the world became women wearing pants.
I felt that, to be separate from the world, I needed to dress differently than the world. I also needed to be feminine and distinctively female; there should be a noticeable difference between my clothes and a man's clothes. The difference in our culture is that women wear dresses and men wear pants, so I believe it's right for me to wear dresses.
Several years ago, my pastor gave some principles for Christian dress. They're very helpful, and they can be applied to male or female, pants or dresses.
- 1. Modesty - does this clothing cover me adequately? I Tim. 2:9
- 2. Not worldly - does this clothing reflect the current trends of Hollywood and TV? I John 2:15
- 3. Difference - does this clothing easily show there's a difference between me and the opposite gender? Deut. 22:5
- 4. Inoffensive - does this clothing offend a brother or sister in Christ? As a woman, will this cause my brother to stumble or think lustfully about me? Rom 14:7-8,12-13 I Cor. 10:23; 8:13
- 5. Glorifies God - does this clothing glorify God, or does it call attention to me and glorify me? I Cor. 10:31
As for this being a matter between a wife, husband, and God:
A saved man will encourage his wife to do what God is laying on her heart. Several ladies have mentioned how their husbands didn't see the need for dresses only, but supported them in wearing them because the ladies felt that is what God wanted them to do. With an unsaved husband, the dress issue can be a witness to her husband in one of two ways: if he doesn't mind her wearing dresses only, it can be a witness of her changed life; if he doesn't want her to wear dresses only, her submission to him in this area will be a witness to him (especially if she makes sure to wear what pleases him when they are at home, even if she wears dresses all the rest of the time).
This issue is just like any other that families have to make a decision about. If your heart is open to do whatever God wants you to, and you study scriptures related to it and come to a different conclusion than others, you've done what you need to to follow God's leading. We have freedom in Christ to follow Him as He leads us to. I don't know why some people develop certain convictions and others don't. How people dress is not a salvation issue; it's a separation issue. It's not my job to win them over to my way of thinking on separation - it's the Holy Spirit's job to teach them how God wants them to live. If they ask why I believe something, I'll tell them; otherwise, I stay quiet. -SOURCE
Thank God for such godly and feminine ladies who stand for the truth, and please the Lord Jesus by being virtuous and modest. It all comes down to whether or not each individual woman CARES about pleased the Lord, and if she cares about what's going on in the hearts and minds of men that are already battling the evils of lust. It's hard enough for men to have clean minds without careless women who dress like whores and hussies. END
