Black Preaching Network

Over the years, I have heard many men and women in the holiness denominations say that women shouldn't wear pants in the church.

Were is the scripture to support the ideology that women shouldn't wear pants? If it is in scripture then I would have to ask why are men wearing pants? Did men wear pants in biblical times or did their wear something that covered their loins and then long robe like attire? I mean isn't that what you depict in your biblical plays? So why aren't the men being asked to wear similar apparel in the church to maintain a outward appearance of holiness? Why aren't they asked to not cut their hair (both facial and head)

What are the clothing designations for men in the holiness denominations.

After all, without holiness NO man/woman shall see God.....

Dear sister,

Do you want to conform to what the Bible teaches or contrariwise, do you want to build your own opinion about the clothing of the men and the women who make profession to serve God?

I am not a Tailor, nor a fashion designer. I do not have a catalogue of clothing to offer you. But once in front of your Tailor or your hairdresser, please ask yourself this question before making your choice: WHAT WOULD JESUS DO IF HE WERE IN MY SHOES?

May the Holy Spirit lead you so that you can always dress in a modest and Godly way.

Blessings!

Bro. Germain

Saved by Garbage

And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
Psalm 27:6

There's a lot of sadness, despair, and depression in life; and we can't depend on the world's garbage to save us.

We need the joy of the Lord and the uplifting power of His Word! To find true happiness, it's important to separate from bad company and other negative influences, and to daily renew our minds in the Scriptures.

By living for Christ and meditating on His Word, our heads will be lifted above our enemies; and we can sing our praises to the Lord with joy.

Joy is not jolliness. Joy is perfect acquiescence in God's will because the soul delights itself in God Himself.
Bishop Tindimwebwa

 

 

There was a sistah who came to church in a dress all right. No pants, just a dress.

It was up to her butt and she wanted to make sure her form and shape was showing and she was dancing in the pulpit in such a way as to attract attention to herself. The other women saw it and pretended not to notice, but it was screaming "I'm really really desperate." May I interject that maybe it isn't what you wear, but the way you wear it.

Saw a video recording of an "evangelist" woman on YouTube later on.

Her husband was taping her "teaching message" to the audience, but the problem wasn't the message (as lifeless and dull as it was), it was the comments from all the guys who were watching.

Nobody was listening because her boobs were stretched beyond dimension, so she may as well have pulled the top of the blouse down to her waistline because it was certainly headed in that direction. I had to stop watching the message because it got lost in the translation due to the way she was dressed.

Maybe it was intentional to see if people were capable of overlooking her Kardashianwear, but guys are guys. They said what they were supposed to say, dress and all.

Maybe it ain't what you wear ... it's the way you wear it.

Dear Sister Greene,

I would hope that the Pastor would say something to the woman for dressing that way, and seek to encourage her not to be a distraction to the service. The Word of God is good for instruction in righteousness, rebuking, and edification, so that the child of God can be mature, thoroughly equipped  to every good work. Some of the sisters in the church should also pull her aside, and seek to correct her so that she can be brought into fellowship with the body of Christ. There are a number of reasons why people dress that way, and in a spirit of meekness we are to seek to restore such a one, considering ourselves, less we be tempted. When we say come as you are, there still has to be obedience to the house rules.

Amen.

Well said brother!

Elder Byron thank you for the way you put it...I pastor and women do wear pants in my church, and I dont preach on them...Lord I have come a long way. anyway the women that are in authority during service know their are somethings they need to submit to in order to operate...keyword Submit..same rule applies to the men that want to wear long hair and braids and studs in their ears if you are going to operate in leadership you need to submit to this standard of leadership. Follow me as I follow christ.
