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.....

Amen my Brother.
It's all about modest apparel.  Women & men should not wear tight revealing clothes especially in church.  When dressing for church, consideration should be taken in regards to the weakness of our brothers & sisters that might be distracted during worship.  We are our brothers/sisters keeper & many are struggling with sexual demons of all forms.  Cover up & loosen up for both men & women when dressing to be in the congregation of the saints. 

You know the BK killer who was an Elder in his church, wore a suit every Sunday to church.  He looked the part and if wasn't for that killing thing that he did on the side, heck he would've been a good model of a Christian.


Women wearing pants to church aint a big deal.  The outside does not matter to God.  Plenty of well dressed Christians will be busting hell wide open!!!


Now I know that's right.  Brother thank you for making it plain.
Bottom line.  All things are lawful, but not all are expedient for us as Christians (I Cor 6:12).  Babes in Christ have to be taught & some of them that have been IN THE WAY a while need to be retaught.  It's not about what you wear, it's how it's worn.
Religion is killing spirituality.  All of our do's and don'ts are retuning us back to the law. We spend too much time trying to look the part of a Christian instead of just being what God wants us to be. 

Deuteronomy 22:5 - The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.

I just gave the scripture. This is a question i have wrestled with since i was young. I have a calling into Ministry but after growing up in churches that preached against woman preaching, i often wonder if that is okey. Thank you for this question on what we should wear as Women.

Praise the Lord my sister. I think yours is a good topic and a necessary question posed. Briefly speaking, I see no sin in women wearing pants to church. It does not matter if she's wearing pants or a dress. The important thing is that she is dressed appropriately. I have seen some real sensuous dresses in the church in my day; dresses that were appropriate only for a night club or bawdy parties. Should we excuse this attire because it was a dress worn? They say for a woman to wear a dress to church shows respect unto God and His house. But is there respect shown in lewdness? There are pants that be appropriate and also dresses. Likewise there are pants that be inappropriate and also dresses. But what saith the scriptures? The scriptures admonishes that the woman should not wear clothing that pertains to the man, and the man should wear no clothing which pertains to the woman. It is okay for the woman to wear pants if they are pants that are made for a woman. But let the pants be moderate and reserved (all pants are not skin tight and all pants do not pertain to men). What would I look like with pants on that zipped from the side, no back pockets (all smooth behind), and with an elastic band around the waist? I would look like a fool. But if Mrs.King wore the same pair of pants, It would be fitting to do so. In short the scriptures say, to the pure all things are pure. If people watching have lust in their hearts, It doesn't matter what you're wearing, they lust because the lust is in them. Know you not that a man is tempted when he is drawn away of his on lust and enticed...? But so that you are not a stumblingblock to your brother. Dress moderately, that your good be not evil spoken of.

Love and peace be yours, Pastor Mel

It is no where in scripture that says a woman cannot wear pants. People who say that use Deuteronomy 22:5. If the people who use this scripture would do a historiological study they would understand that God put that law in place for a specific reason. First you have to look at the religious practices of the nations around Israel. This law and others like it were put into place to protect the Israelites. All the nations in that area practiced some type of sexual and sodomite behavior in the execution of their rites. Sodomy was very prevalent in that area. men would dress like women to try and seduce men; like wise women did the same. Also every one wore what we call dresses. The Bible calls them robes. After research they will find that women wore pants before men did. During their menstral cycle pants were worn under their dresses to keep the cloth in place. Women in the orient wore pants before men. Or don't they know that women wore earrings before men. I have found this is used as a way of controlling people. Wearing pants will not exclude you from heaven; rejecting Christ will. Trying to place some one under the law is another form of bondage. The law is not bad, but we live by the spirit of the law not the letter. Read Galations 3:10-28.  Gal. 5:18. Romans 6:14  
It's not what you wear it's WHO you wear
