i think we focus on the wrong things, and miss out on christ. i dont see no wrong with a women wearing women pants, especially if you are in the business setting. and mens should wear men pants. clothes not gonna send us to hell, our soul gonna send us if we are not right, but once we completely transform our mind, like christ say. we will see things his way, we will be more understanding, and patient with others. thats why he put that scripture in the bible, man got a way that seems right, and if were not lined up with god all of our ways are right. i have to repent all the time about my ways that seems right. be blessed, thats why god set preachers in the churches to set all those crooked places straight. all i can tell you be led by the spirit and rightly divide the word of god. we can offend people quick now these days. they always looking for excuses for not to serve god. but they better snap out of it, because time is winding down.
Way back in November 13th 2010 I posted a word study (translation) on Deuteronomy 22:5. There are two word doc attachments that everyone might like to review. It is located page 26. It might provide better understanding of the Hebrew meaning of the passage.
It is such a shame that the topic of women wearing pants can claim the valuable time of God's people. In my ministry, I deal with all sorts of people in desperate need. The last thing they want to know, and I have time to discuss is such trivia. I prefer to leave such topics to those who believe they have time to deal with it. My desire is to give hope to the hopeless and befriend those in need. In my youth I was in a church that played on this stuff. It did me NO GOOD at all, only turned me away from God's Word and the power of that name which is above every name. I had to be in a position where I had been given just 3 days to live for God to show me His Psalm 103 and that He had a greater topic for me to adhere to and a far more victorious way of life in store.
That brother is NOT humbleness.
Sorry I have had too much of this stuff in my life and seen it cause others problems. I have to look beyond these details into theeyes and desires of Jesus himself.
I am sorry, but who is getting defensive??
Cool down brother, what have you got to loose. You will not win me over with your tough stance about what I consider quite nothing. No I am not the only person who has been through things, neither am I saying I am or have. I was simply saying what issues are caused by this stuff in my experience. If you wish to believe in this and make a big issue of it, carry on, it affects me not one jot or title. I am not getting at YOU only what I feel is a complete non argument and a distraction from the real thing
By the way bruv....I will excuse you and still luv ya all the same
Now I simply MUST go out and get some food for the weekend.
I have to go out soon. I will answer again quickly for the sake of any folk that may disagree with me. Of course I want to get on with brothers and sisters. (There are enough people denying that God even exists, such has the devil closed eyes)
What I do find very perturbing though, is that my wife being a black lady, (I am white as if that matters) has had these condemning people getting at her because she wares what we call in the UK 'trousers'. Most folk can actually see less of her legs that way, leaving the real thing to me, her husband!!!
I have seen this argument cause great consternation in churches with bad and unwarranted results. I am running a large ministry, getting even larger by the day. This 'pants on women' argument is really just a futile distraction to keep us away from those in the world that need to see and hear the gospel properly and proactively and above all, outside of the church doors. (Salt and Light)
I am so sorry that I may make a few folks cough a bit, as this may be a pet topic to them, but I would rather see the blessings continue rolling in to enable us to continue to pass them on to others, which we sure do, than get into debates such as this.
Dress wisely and above all, keep that heart right with God whatever you do. Allow Him to guide and keep you, He's not helpless!! DON'T get sidelined into arguments that are out of kilter with Gods Word.
Remember when Paul was around, customs and clothing were quite different and meanings are often now taken out of context, sometimes completely.
I used to live in Thailand a long time back. There if you touched a child's head, it was seen as very rude and disrespectful, even in the local evangelical church!! Now in the west, patting a child's head is an endearment. Even though the Thai custom is silly to us, I still would not offend such folk, as it had grown even into a culture of the church. I have traveled to many many nations, more than most and can see how these local customs are taken so seriously, even though in Holy writ they are quite unqualified.
Just because the Bible deems such things as unimportant, I would rather still not offend.
I hope now that my last critic in this forum can see where I am coming from. The 'pants on women' hustle is in my experience straining out a gnat and definitely swallowing one big camel........................IN THE WEST.
I will not again be commenting on this topic. Love to you all and bless you all
