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’m so sorry you have been hurt by the church, I have been badly, badly hurt by the church folks, some in low positions and some in very high positions, but that was my training, and my test to grow in God, and it was also your test. To go deeper in His Word and knowledge. But those people that hurt you wasn’t saints, they were, _aint’s! 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.

Wow this blog has been around for a while and resurrected. It's such an old topic, yet it's still causing hang ups. During a time wherein people are following away from the Gospel, dying, hurting, and being lead into darkness, it amazes me that this still exist. But I shouldn't be amazed becasue man never amaze me anymore at how we twist the word for our own purpose. I would like to weigh in on this however. I think about when Jesus carried the gospel and people came and followed: I didn't read where he sent anyone away for not being dressed in the proper attire. To be more to the point, when people try to dress or look holy I always wonder what that looks like. I tell people, I don't have a clue what Holy looks like, but I do believe I have a clue of what holy does or produces, what it acts like!

I was at this church and the altar call was made; it's a holiness type church with restrictions on dress. There is the option to kneel at the alter and/or stand. A lot of the women of the church were "full gifted" if you will in the rear department, and when they kneeled at the alter heads down and butts up, I noticed as I didn't go this time how the men sat or stood and there were all these ladies in the tighest dresses I might add, and some very short, but it didn't matter loose or tight, once the butts were up that's all you saw. I always kneel on my knees str8 back, but my point is that it wouldn't have mattered if they wore pants or skirts the butts were very plain sight and obviously destracting LOL! I was actually uncomfortable and I'm a woman (not gay either) LOL! But I thought my goodness, it was like a display cause all eyes standing behind and sitting were wide open.

I think that with Christ indwelling, whether we wear pants or dresses, we will adorn ourselves not to entice and not to try to appear holy, for holy is spiritual. The holy spirit will teach us to dress modestly. I saw more modest dress in corporate than in the church. I beleive the word is clear that we should adorn our spirits, and is saying that if we are more concerned with the outward appearance, we miss the point; our focus is off. As to the point of women not wearing what pertains to man, this too is spiritual in my opinion and to my understanding of God's word. It says to me "Woman don't try to be a man or the man, or the head!"

Remember, what Jesus said about the Jewish law or keeping the law? Also in the law of Moses, if I'm not mistaken, there was no law about dress. But if there was, remember the word says we can't keep the law, the Holy Spirit is and should be our governer. Just my 2 cents. The adorning is about the spiritual adorning and focus, preparing the heart to receive and worship with the desire to please God and draw man to Him with our spiritual adornment.
Please let me clarify, I believe women of God are to wear dresses/ skirts. I myself do not wear pants to church. I do advocate for those who are just coming out of the storm. In the house were I serve women in pants in the pulpit, choir, missionary, ministers are not permitted this is the order of the house.
I was reffering to those women that have no word / knowledge.
There are women in the church that are not in the above ministries (that wear pants) and they are anointed and the fruit they produce is good fruit.
The harvest is so plentiful and I see so much on a daily basis.. The abused, full blown AIDs, HIV teenagers, addictions, Total self destruction ........ once again there is a method to fishing, bait the hook and after you reel the fish in THEN you can clean and dress it. Fisherman of men (women).
Is thee a scripture that confirms that women can not wear pants? Were pants even invented when the bible was written. Do you follow all of the laws in the new testament

The Word of God prepares us for the bondage that man will continue to put self and others in. I thank God for His wisdom through the Holy Ghost. I think outer apparell restrictions are bondage, God looks on the heart of man and any man (woman) in Christ knows what not to wear not only in church but in life. I certainly would not dress like a man but to put this type of energy and controlliing choke hold on a person is ridiculous. However, The Word tells us not to offend others. If someone deems wearning pants a sin, then I would not change my life to please them (masking), but I would respect their belief. I was just praying the other day about how man (we) have so many opinions and "I beleive" personal ministries,when the Word is clear. We need to allow the Holy Spirit (comforter/teacher) to lead and guide us and stop trying to put others in bondage and come up with all these "opinion" ministries to justify personal preferences or choices (and mask our weaknesses, or allow for them) in place of the true gospel. "There is a way that seems right to man"...and where does it lead? Everybody has a belief or an opinion but if we just stay with the Word and leave self out of it we will be fine.
Amen

Amen. I was in chains about wearing pants and being holy for along time. I dont fault the church they are human. But I am glad that we have a God who will open up the blinded eye and show us that it is not the outer that condemns but a heart that is not towards God. Holiness is a state of being not what we wear or dont wear. I agree with you sister. So I am free today to wear what i want in moderation not offending GOD or my sisters and brothers.
