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!!!
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
