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.....

Elder Byron thank you for the way you put it...I pastor and women do wear pants in my church, and I dont preach on them...Lord I have come a long way. anyway the women that are in authority during service know their are somethings they need to submit to in order to operate...keyword Submit..same rule applies to the men that want to wear long hair and braids and studs in their ears if you are going to operate in leadership you need to submit to this standard of leadership. Follow me as I follow christ.
I always try to teach in LOVE, God said to draw the people with love, and teach in Love, or you will not reach them.

Love you dear sister. Be blessed!!
I wear pants and I am still  full of the Glory of God. And it does not stop my worship and I refuse to let a pair of pants keep me from worshipping my lord and saviour. We as the people of God need to read the word and ask God for revelation. because if we would be honest men used to wear in the bible day and time it would be considered a dress. The first garment men and women of that era wore was the loincloth. It consisted of a rectangle of cloth with straps (ties) attached to one end. The garment was tied around the waist and the cloth pulled between the legs and anchored in the previously tied waistband. The essence of simplicity, one answered the call of nature by simply freeing the cloth from its waistband The body of Christ is so worried about the outward look of a person that, we have missed fully who they are in God and what they have to offer to the up building of the Kingdom of God. And if you wont to draw them with love, be more like Jesus he looks beyond our faults and sees our need. God Bless

Right on, sis.

Amen sister this is exactly the way I feel.

I don't understand why anyone is bothering to talk about it, but I say that in love - not contention.

If your body is covered, it's covered. That's all that counts.
