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.....

Stop living in this time on mans inventions (pants for women) and listen to Yah from the time he said to know....If men MADE pants then Yisrael would not have taken part in it because they understood...men wore pants and only men....Why do you say it is not so or imply but use MAN'S DEVISES...to change (imply) what Yah has said....
Once again I will say in the end Jesus is coming back to judge our hearts and what works we put behind our professed faith so pants or no pants it seems some church people are stuck in religion and not relationship with God. God wants my intimate relationship with Him. Not if I'm wearing pants while I'm doing the work that God has for me to do. Jesus came for the unrighteous (remember that)! His purpose wasn't to preach and teach people in 3 piece suits or in pants or dresses. Jesus saved SOULS! And on the cross He died for OUR sins. Let's stop getting caught up in mans thoughts and ideas and bring it back to the Word where it belongs. "Jesus' message, assignment, passion, and purpose were not to establish a religion of rituals and rules but rather to reintroduce a Kingdom". (Myles Munroe) I believe we are failing in the body of Christ due to these things here. We have soooooooooooooo much work still to be done. So many people to save and we are worrying about pants. Come on children of God. Matthew 23:13, 15 reads: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to....Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are". Jesus says in Matthew 21:31 Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you"... Matthew 7:1, 5 reads: "Judge not, that ye be not judged". (7:5) "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brothers eye". Please stop getting caught up in man and lets get caught up in the Word! We need to deal with our own beams and stop worrying about our brother/sisters motes (specks). AMEN in Jesus name!
1Timothy 2:9-14 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
oooohhhhh that's NT....can they fight that one??? LOL
In the end it doesn't matter what man thinks...it matters what God thinks. We came into this world naked and we will leave this world naked and that means no one wears pants in the end! And I rather take my chances with my God who is loving, forgiving, slow to anger and through His mercy and grace already had a plan and purpose for my life before I even existed! Praise God! You don't know God's plan for my life and neither does anyone else here on earth but I will say this I am 1billion percent sure of my relationship with my God and I know what He has called me to do with or without pants I will do the work of my Lord in Jesus name!
It's sad but that's why God is raising up unchurched folks to preach his word and save His people because the Bible says "not everyone who cries out Lord will enter the Kingdom of heaven"! Amen! Church folks need to stop being religious and build back a relationship with their Heavenly Father in Jesus name. Because pants or no pants you don't my heart! And ONLY GOD will judge me! Blessings brother.
Not really sure what your saying in that statement but I am well aware of the God in my life and what gifts and talents that He is using me for. So God bless and have a great day in Jesus name I pray! :-)
Sister Shona.. The scriptures judge you.. Not us...
Well thank you Brother and I look forward to seeing in heaven as well! God bless always! :-)
We are not going to Heaven. The Lord is bringing the Kingdom on Earth in Jerusalem.
Heaven was the word for "sky" or "universe". It has been translated or considered like a paradise as well and that is where Christ took the thief that accepted him as Lord. "This day will thou be with me in paradise." The scripture said that dead in Christ shall rise and which remain would be caught up! Why rise and why be caught up is there is no place to go. We will ascend with him until judgment has passed. It is after he had destroyed the current "heaven and earth" after the judgment that he will create a new heaven and new earth. It is on the new earth and in the new heaven that his kingdom will be established.
