Does God Care How We Dress?

by autumn on December 31, 2010 · 3 comments

When I write I usually offend someone. *sigh* If I’m smart I’ll have my husband edit my posts before I publish.  He can see all those tiny little “jabs” that I perhaps didn’t even intend as jabs.

This morning I read a post on modesty that was so well written and unoffensive that I had to share.

Dear Sisters In Christ,

Immodesty, like most forms of sin, is rarely spoken of today. Freedom to do as one pleases is the benchmark of the American church; freedom to dress as we please naturally follows for many women.

Listening to the siren call of the world, the modern church has painted our Christianity with far too broad a stroke. Once the Holy Writ was considered inerrant and infallible and we in the church held a high view of God and an exalted view of His holiness. That time is no more.

With few godly men to guide us, many women have fallen for the lie that freedom lies in discarding the better part of our clothing. Not only have we sinned against a Holy God but we have also sold ourselves short and tarnished the dignity of womanhood. Wrapping our value up in the ability to wear a swimsuit is diminishing to us indeed. Read more…

My favorite quote from the post:” Christ didn’t come so that He might offer us freedom to do as we please and do it in His Holy Name. He came to give us freedom from sin; not to grant us freedom to sin.”
