LET ME JUST ASK THIS QUESTION....
WHAT IS THE ZIPPER FOR IN PANTS?
What about them? The first pair (in modern times) of "slacks" were worn by MEN...it's not till womens lib that women decided to BE LIKE MEN and decide since their EQUAL they can wear pants..
Your questions is just my point, the fact that they had to take away the zipper with some designers because women don't need a reason to have a zipper...That already shows that the intent for pants was for men to wear them..
also you still did not answer my question, what IS the zipper for?
It is a silly tradition that is foisted on men and women to preclude them from coming to church and being exposed to the gospel.
Jonathan said: "I think that is the problem with us as black folks we simply do not believe that a great God would so love us that He would just freely give us something that we did not earn"
I was with you until this statement; For one God is not a respecter of person nor does salvation have color on it. Black people, Caucasian people, Hispanic, Asian or whatever race or nationality you are if you have not received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior then you will not spend eternity in Heaven. I know that God loves me from where he brought me from and I believe that a lot of people may not attend church because there is just as much mess going on inside the church as it is not. You worship God in your heart and in your vessel not a building by being obedient to the WORD of GOD. Some are sick and shut in and not able to go inside an edifice so I have to disagree with your statement it was a bit biased. My Father is rich in houses and land and He owns the whole world and as an heir to His promise I am rich also,Hallelujah! Jesus already fulfilled the Law we live in grace!
