LOL! What we wear (or how we wear our hair, for that matter) will not make a whit of difference regarding our eternal destiny! My mission is to win souls (step 1 - make disciples), grow disciples into the truth of Jesus (step 2 - mature believers), and train and raise up leaders to repeat steps 1 and 2 (step 3 - multiply ministries). That, my Brother, is Kingdom focus! I praise God that because I have repented of my sins, believed on the name of Jesus, and confessed Him as Lord, I know my name IS written in the Lamb's book of life. God bless you, too, My Brother!
One word, Amen! Like yourself, I was called by God by His audible voice. I had no peace until I yielded to His will. However, once I began to plug into my purpose, I received my divine assignment, now I walk in my destiny. I think we are losing collective traction because we are spinning our wheels on immaterial subject matter. We need to be about making disciples, maturing believers, and multiplying ministries; it's just that simple! Stay Blessed!
EXCUSE ME...HOLINESS HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH WHAT WE WEAR!
IT'S A SPIRITUAL CONDITION OF THE HEART!
THE VERSE MOST PREACHERS SKIP RIGHT OVER...IS
" TO KNOW NO MAN ...(OR WOMAN).... AFTER THE FLESH!"
My dear friend I read your reply to the long debated discussion of pants. I do not think people should trust the God in you. They should trust God period.
you wrote " I have witnessed what wearing pants too tight in the Sanctuary can cause of our brothers in Christ and how the focus of ministering in pants can take away from listening to what is being said."
Are you watching the brothers watch the women? This is what your post infers.
You say that the directions arein the word but the word s subject to many interpretaitons. In the first place the word we have is at best fifth hand interpretaiton and then that interpretation is changed depending on what type of bible you use.
I believe that people who abide by the bible must realize that if there was a common thread amoung believers no one can find it anymore so just obey god and leave everybody else alone
I see there is still comments on this topic....John 15:5 I am the Vine ye are the branches the same shall bring forth much fruit for WITHOUT me you can do NOTHING....allow the spirit of God to lead and guide you men and women of God in what you should wear. The Bible teaches that also. Luke 9:23 He said to them ALL ... If any man will come after me, let him DENY himself and take up his cross DAILY and FOLLOW me. We need not to lean to our own understanding...the WORD is plain as day....we must not add or take nothing away from the Word of God. NO EXCUSES.
Obey...Obey...Obey...OBEDIENCE is the key, we just don't want to OBEY.
In Love, Sis. Denise
