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.....

You are right we must get to the heart of the matter then we can build the house.

I agree must not get caught up on what one wears as long as it is not overly exposing I believe it's ok. If we capture the heart first then everything else will begin to follow.
lol, sounds like a tradition of men.  Sad that so many live by, go by things that they themselves cant even find scriptural support.  I have never read it restricted of men or women to wear pants.  Whats next, you wont be raptured if you have pants on lol, Jesus Christ sometimes the children take things too far.
What it actually says a man should not wear anything that pertains to a woman or vice verser.GOD knew before hand about this rampant homosexuality spirit plaguing the world.All things not done in faith is sin.If you dont understand and you dont believe ask GOD for the increase he will give it to you.GOD BLESS
You are on it my brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

According to Deuteronomy 22:5, "The women shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a women's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."


1 Corinthians 11:13-15, "Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering."


From what I've learned, it was a dishonor for a man to have long hair because it was considered as feminine.  Only the Nazarite had long have for a period of time when sanctifying themselves...

Interesting are the latest comments.  And it was ask what should be passed unto the Gentiles, and it was agreed that the Laws of Moses be not placed upon the Gentiles, but only that they "Abstain from pullutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood" this is found in Acts 15.  Some say but pants are for men, but yet there are pants made just for women, a woman walking in wearing men's pants may be a different matter, but if she is wearing women's pants, pants made for women, I see nothing wrong.  And I hope many are more interested in the condition of that person's spirit garment called the soul.  Now would I turn a woman away from coming into worship service because she had on women's pants, of course not, sister come on in and enjoy the service and fellowship with the rest of the Brothers and Sisters.  Would Jesus tell a woman wearing pants she cant enter? 

I am reminded of Romans 14:1-4 and would say if one believeth they can wear the pants, let them be, if one doesnt believe they can wear the pants, let them be. 


You all enjoy the day/evening and God bless you all.  This will probably be my last comment on this topic. 

   Amen,Brother Oliver!!!
I just want to know why did we only pick this Deut.22:v 5 about dressing but don't practice all other laws or you may say directives from God or still Moses? What do you do when you find your neighbors goat or sheep, etc straying in verses 1 to 4? What about sowing two kinds of seed in the garden? What of wearing wool and linen materials together, do we obey that too? In verse 13 to 21 how many of the men have obeyed this law? The law continued and continued. There is nothing wrong with our sisters wearing pants as it does not reveal their nakedness. I believe that our relationship with God is what is important and without holiness no man shall see God, not clothes, but we should dress responsibly not to attract unnecessary attention.
You On It My Brother !
             Amen,my Brother !
