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.....

I believe the issue is not in the wearing of pants, but in the wearing of pants or any clothing that is revealing as to getting the attention of other people.  Don't do or wear anything that would make a brother or sister stumble or become distracting in the church.  Pants are fine otherwise. By the way, my wife and daughters wear pants when they please, just not distracting.  God bless you.

Try This On.

Amen Rev. Edwards, thank you for your balance and wisdom


The Bible tells us to let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. We must not condemn ourselves for the things that we approve. We are at liberty in Christ, but we must not use our liberty as a stumbling block for the weaker brother. I am free to eat meat, but if eating meat causes my brother to stumble, then I will not eat meat. The same is true for clothing, and what may be ok to wear in the world, is not proper in a Church gathering. The Bible tells us to do all things in order, and since the Church is the pillar, as well as the ground for the truth, we must set all things in order. The important thing is that we worship the Lord in spirit, and in truth. Anything that prevents us from doing that is sin.

AMEN and very well explained Mr. George..thank you

This conversation came up today between myself and my son, whom is also a minister.  We are very interested in knowing the concept, scriptures and Word of God which support the fact that women should not wear pants in church.  Scripture from Deut 22:25, I think because I do not have the bible in front of me speaks of it being an abominition to the Lord, but the circumstances surrounding the scripture was because of disobeience of the people of that time.  Please help me out and help me understand what's your theory.  From my understanding and some of what I read was also because of cross dressing.

Hello my sister . I am very interested in the same subject.   Dueteronomy 22.5   The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man ,neither shall a man put on a womans garment. For all that do so are abomination unto the lord .

Also read Dueteronomy 22-9 and        Dueteronomy 22.11

1 corinthians 11:14  Doth even nature teach you that , if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him

Hebrews 10:25 Not foresaking the assembly of ourselves together , as the manner of some is ; but exhorting one another  ; and so much the more , as ye see the day approaching. 

I believe that we should come to praise the lord as we are and no one should judge how you come . This pushes people away from the church when the bible tells us not to judge one another.A true Christian helps another Christian no matter how they look and dont push them away but pray for them and deciple to them.


The reason that it is said not to wear pants as the old saints was to put a difference between men and women in biblical days men wore the same but there were a difference during that time the colors that men wore were different so that u knew it was women garment.  Customs also have a lot to do in American as long as I can remember women wore dresses and men wore pants and that is what made the difference. Paul said to dress modest.  So we are not to reveal or do any thing that cause any one to sin if it reveals to much it can cause someone to sin and cause offence.  the Holy Ghost will convict you to what is modest and what is not so if you put on a garment and have to ask is this appropiate then u know something is prompting you not to wear.  The bible said for the older women to teach the younger and if they are willing to listen, I am sure they will tell you.

when the bible says dont wear things pertaining to a man,it didnt mean pants because pants wasnt invented then.peopl looks at the outer but god looks at the heart

Peace to all , we have dragged this out for years and no offense  but there are Souls out there that need the True Word of God.... This is a ploy to distract and to take our eyes off of the plot the enemy sets before us...  If our hearts are not correct, clean, and filled with the Love of God we are going to held accountable to those souls we are not helping while we discuss, pants... Please do not be offended but we must release this and go Forth in the Word of God.. Build one another up, PRAYING one for the other... Let God deal with the clothing matter.. This is why soo many don't come to church in the first place, they see the body being separated and on the streets their gangs have more unity than we do in the church..   I tell folk as Christ did COME As YOU Are.. I don't own a Heaven or hell to place you, but I can show you how to get to Heaven.. Many churches dunk more folk in the water soon as they enter the church and the person goes in from excitement, no understanding of why, and they are not able to maintain what just happened. This is the same as dressing folk. Leave them alone, pray for them let God deal with them and do as we were commanded Witness, Give the Word of God not our emotional agenda..  If God dealt with us the way we deal with folk we would have been lost a LONG time ago.. Much Love to you all I pray for us that we COME UP and Help those that in Need.  I would much rather have a sincere woman of God helping me with pants on than a woman that only wore dresses because she felt compelled to from some teaching she heard and had a evil spirit in her heart.  In Church we try hard to out dress one another, drive the best cars or we are being driven.. We can't reach the lost because we are now Not SERVANTS but Celebrities.. I have been in the midst of many Great men and Woman of God, read their books and refuse to ask for an autograph, I want the Words of God written on the tables of my heart.. And a heart to Love anybody regardless of what they are dressed like.. I already know once the heart is right with God He will teach us how to dress.. What to wear and how to wear it.. We are something we send more folk to hell than we believe they can make it to Heaven and this was the reason Our Father Bled on the Cross.. He even did it for the atheist and knew they would deny His existence. But He did it anyway.. We don't have the endurance to love past clothing.. shame on us as a people of God...
