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.....

"Some" of what you said is right my brother, but remember. Skirts were worn by men too just a few hundred years ago! It's not about pants or dresses, it's about current social standards of dress between men and women. And in today's world that is identifed with men wearing pants and women wearing dress. But no one wore pants in the bible days so that doesn't really apply here which is why I used straight talk instead trying to defend my biblical perspective.
Actually your comment is based on Yisrael's culture or the rest of the world....I don't think that if you look 100 Years ago you will see any men in this country that were wearing "skirts" Scottish yes...but it was more parade dress than normal wear.....and the fact that we make a comment such as "men wearing skirts 100 years ago" suggest that it is a Womans apparel that they were wearing which would also be suggesting that Yah is contradicting himself...Why tell us to not wear the other genders clothing then make something that is womans clothing...

If you study Hebrew Culture you will find that although the "skirts" were similar they were also made differently (cloth, color or other ways)... However, pants, trousers etc...were made for men and there is NO RECORD of Yah having pants made for women...

For the record...I'm not mean against women that wear pants however, truth must be told...

Shalom
Women can make the same argument with pants. Certain pants have been "made"specifically for women just as certain "skirts" were made specifically for men. The issue is to set a difference between and not what that particular item is. Pants and skirts set a quick difference between. I think men should not wear long hair because long hair is connected to a woman's hair style but you have long hair. So have you sperated yourself from the things of the opposite gender? This goes both ways my brother. Not trying to stir stirfe. I'm just saying the Word of Yahweh says "rightly divide the word of truth." And if you don't rightly divide it at the right time for the right instance you will find a lot of back and forth like we have entered into.
Your talking what MAN did not what Yah instructed.....do you take Yah's instructions over Shaul's or the other way around....or do yo know what was the question asked for him to say what he said about long hair????? You don't so why would you take that to mean not to have Long hair?

It is the nations that we went into captivity that had the short hair (most of them) Egypt, Rome etc...were known to wear short hair......so who's report are you following that of Yah or that of men?

Read about who had long hair (Locks), was Samson wrong??? was most of the Yisraelites wrong? Have you seen the pictures on walls in Egypt that showed the Yisraelites with Long Hair? are you telling me that Shaul trumps thousands of years of a culture? in fact HIS OWN CULTURE???? cant' be....

Read the scriptures before you put the inaccuracy of the NT above it...Yah does not change and if he does not (without HIS OWN WORD)...I find it funny that we see Yah himself speaking to his leaders AND people...but yet in the NT we only see MEN talking....that's an issue....there are many things in the ME that are wrong....but you (as I have) have been taught a Catholic/Roman Religion that is pagan in origin and cancer to all..My Locks are a sign of my oath to the Most High...so I am not out of line with scripture...

Shalom
Sounds like justification to me. The same thing women do that wear pants. Long hair is primarily assocated with women. That's all I said. Just like pants are usually assocated with men.

Yahweh is not trivial, "and if it's good of the goose it's good for the gander." If you can oppress people with the word then you should be oppressed with it yourself. means for every scripture you find against something, there is one out there for it. So the best way to get beyond that is to "rightly the divide the word of truth." That's an individual mandate and not for one to rightly divide it and then beat someone over the head because they didn't get the same division of it.
Well, I apologize that you were offended, however, it's the truth...so many of these bloodsuckinsocalledpastors set a stage so that women (and i'm sure some men) are so caught up in the show that they will give their "seed" offering (nothing scriptural) even if it's the last you have...

Scripture records in Deuteronomy 28 some of the curses that will come upon Yisrael (the so-called African American) and if one knows that they are under a curse because of their forefathers and OUR sins....then on (mega church or not so mega) can play on your "cursed self"...BUT if you know that you need to come to Yahweh and start again knowing that Yah spoke those curses but he also spoke of blessings if you turned from your wicked ways (which means in part using the scripture for sport or gain) you can be healed as well as Yisrael's land being healed....

Lastly I made that statement based on the last statement about someone buying a dress for some sisters...and although it may have been out of fun...my question is...Is something as simple as changing your style (from pants to dress) not worth it seeing you are obeying Yah and not man?

Again I ask...If your boss had a dress code would you complain that you like wearing pants and if he said this is what the "Law" is...would you quit? or comply?

Choice is yours...

If your a PO you would wear the uniform they told you would you not?
Well...living in Massachusetts allows me to marry a woman legally...do I do it because it is legal? NO! Not everything that looks good is for you...and not everything that is for you looks good!
ok I'll wait till you actually answer the question...
My answer is if I wanted to be a PO then that's what I would follow. There is no scripture in the Bible that reads women can't wear pants. Some may say as it reads in Deuteronomy 22:5 "A woman must not wear men's clothes, and a man must not wear woman's clothes. The Lord your God hates anyone who does that". (NCV) Okay...man can define that whatever way they like but it's saying God hates cross dressing. Because that's what it is called when men wear woman's clothing and vice versa. So your saying capris are a clothing item made for a man? And if you believe that then I would love to see a picture of you rocking capris...please and I will stop my debate here on out! Blessings! LOL!
Well see the first issue is you are comparing what the WORLD makes and what Yah instructed man to make for man....I can show you wear Yah made pants for men....in fact the priests....no woman...

people need to get it into their heads that this world is out to do everything opposite of what the Most High has said....your living based on what man and his devices has made (that why people call him by the wrong name)...Some say if Yah wanted to let us know that women could wear britches.pants etc...he would have waited until this time or a few years ago to send Messiah...However he chose a time where although Yisrael was scattered they were not doing WHAT THE WORLD DOES...

It's like "IF the world makes it Yah changes with it...

All the Years up until the womens movement Pants (in Yisrael OR most of America was only for men...At that time MOST would say it's because of scripture.....but now it's changed not because scripture has changed but because of what is right in the eyes of MAN.....

Just because MEN made Capries that means we disobey Yah?
Because MAN makes pants for women that means we disobey Yah?

Pants were made for men PERIOD (because of scripture) just because MAN makes something because they want EQUALITY does that mean WE have to go for it?
I bet the same people that say that NOW eat pork and use scripture twisted to justify their actions...Your speaking based on now...I speak on what Yah intended then to avoid these issues NOW...but again just as our forefathers....WE DON'T LISTEN...

Shalom
