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.....

Wow... I posted this question way back in May of 2009 and folks are still talking about it... LOL... interesting indeed. oh well... some topics never seem to go away.

There was soooo much erroneous "traditions of men" teaching in the church when I was growing up. It was like I had been eating high caloric junk food and then grew up and got on a healthy diet of TRUTH straight from the scriptures. Not the "I'm gonna take one scripture, tweek it and make it the law according to this or that denomination"


People really get tired of me asking them for the biblical basis for the things they do as tradition. But I MUST ask... "why are you doing that?" People follow stuff so blindly just because Grandma 'nem did it for years.

Anywho.. continue chatting amongst yourselves. I thought I'd poke my head in for a bit.

Be blessed

you know when you back, we never saw women wear pants to church, particularly black women so why is it an issue now, it is not appropriate, even if a scripture was given would you accept it? because regardless of what you hear you are going with your feelings not scripture god bless you.
Do you really think it's that simple? Yah says he didn't come to bring peace but a sword.
I belong to the school of thought that says pant in church is not the problem rather we should concentrate our efforts on people outside the fold of Christ and leave the holy Spirit to convince people as they continue to be in his presence. Let us not major in minor and minor in major.May God hello us. Amen.


Amen brother  well said
Yes, men did wear apnts in Bible. God called them 'breeches' God to my Blog and click on the archive:

P.S. have any questions contact me?
For I have not shunned to declare unto you ALL the counsel of God. -Acts 20:27-
"And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying,
We will eat our own bread, AND WEAR OUR OWN APPAREL." -Isaiah 4:1a-
What does the Bible say about a saved woman wearing pants?
Is it even an issue with God?
Or is it merely a matter of preference or opinion to be left up to individuals to do what is right in their own eyes? Since we believe the Bible, more specifically, the King James Bible, to be the FINAL AUTHORITY (not tradition, opinions, or how one "feels" led), let's start there.
Deuteronomy 22:5 - "The woman shall not wear that which pertain 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." After reading this verse, what things pop into your mind? Earrings and necklaces on men, long hair on men, short hair on women, dresses on men, and of course, pants on women. Notice the word "abomination" is used to describe how God feels about cross-dressing.
When you want women to follow the laws that are in the old testament you open a can of worms. Are we under the law or are we under grace?
