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.....

AMEN i AGREE.. HOWEVER THRU THE YRS. THE OLDER SAINTS USED THE SCRIPTURE { FORBIDDING WOMEN TO WEAR APPEARL OF A MAN } AS A WAY SO SAY FEMALES SHOULD NOT WEAR PANTS. I PERSONNALLY WAS RAISED THAT WAY BY MY GRANDMOTHER & FATHER , {RIP} BOTH OF U!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THE TEACHING. BEING SAVED AND FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT @ THE AGE OF 12. WELL, IT WAS QUITE TRYING, GOING TO FOOTBALL GAMES AND CARNIVALS. NOT TO MENTION I WAS THE ONLY GIRL WITH MY BROTHER & 3 COUSINS, THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME. I COULD NOT WEAR PANTS, MAKE-UP, EXCESSIVE JEWELRY, COLORED POLISH ON MY NAILS OR TOES. HA-HA LOL
I WAS ALMOST LIKE STEVE HARVEY>> JOKED ONCE AND SAID FORGET THIS GOING TO HEAVEN STUFF IT'S WAYYYY TOO MUCH WORK.. LOL BUT GLORY TO GOD !! I GREW TO LEARN JESUS FOR MYSELF & THE LOVE AND COMPASSION OF GOD. TO KNOW THAT NONE OF THAT MATTERS. IF YO HEART AIN'T RIGHT TOWARDS GOD & THE PEOPLE!! MODEST APPEARL. RESPECT YOURSELF & GOD.. NEW CONVERTS & THE UNCHURCHED, MUST COME AS THEY ARE & LIKE THE MAN OF GOD SAID>> COME IN WHAT U HAVE .. LET GOD DO THE REST. JUST PREACH JESUS!!
AMEN, AMEN, and AMEN
TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR MY GRANDMA & ELDER GRIFFIN {RIP} TRAINING UP A CHILD IN THE WAY THAT SHE SHOULD GO !! BUT, WHEN U STUDY TO SHOW YO SELF APPROVED.. YOU LEARN THAT ALL THE OLD WAYS & TEACHINGS WEREN'T ALWAYS EXPLAINED OR INTERPRETED CORRECTLY. SO, GO DEEP IN GOD FOR OUR SELVES & WE SEE, EVERYDAY, THAT YOUR DRESS COULD BE DOWN TO THE GROUND & COVERED UP TO THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD. IF YOU NOT TRULY BORN AGAIN, FILLED WITH HOLY SPIRIT, WALKING AFTER THE SPIRIT & NOT AFTER THE FLESH, LOVING GOD'S PEOPLE, PREACHING JESUS IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIGHT.& THAT NO MAN COME TO THE FATHER BUT BY JESUS, AND WITH OUT FAITH IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD !! THEN U COULD WEAR A KLANS-MAN SHEET W/ A OVER COAT ON TOP. YOU'RE WASTING YOUR TIME!! LOVE YOU AND PRAY OUR STRENGTH IN JESUS!! AMEN??!!!!.
I don't see a problem with women wearing pants to church, I believe the issue is the type of pants that are being worn. There are some pants that are inappropriate to wear in God's house simply because perversion can become aroused in the minds of the congregates, causing them to miss the message from God. I believe that this is more of the reason why some do not allow women to wear pants in church. I believe modesty is an appropriate response to being a representative of Christ whether in church or out. A woman can look sexy and appealing even in modest apparel.
Saints what are we displaying as character?. Ladies of virtue ask yourself? if Jesus mother, Mary was here today would she wear what I am wearing? Mighty Men of Valor, married or single, how are you treating Ladies today? comparable to the respect that Jesus had for them. Our flesh should be so absent that it is below measure. "Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Philip.1:27
BEST GIFT IS LIFE!
Real life comes from total commitment to God.
Who created life itself!
Requiring discipline, sacrifice and hard work, the reason why most never find it.
As your relationship with God deepens it leads to strength of character, peace of mind and deep satisfaction.
The long term rewards of obeying God are greater than anything the world has to offer resulting in defining life as LIVING IN FAVOR ETERNALLY...

Deut 22:5 gives you a clarification on what is the proper attire for men and women.  So it is scriptural.

However, that is not the totality being Christian and what is proper.  We must take that scripture and being under the law (OT) and that we are now under grace.  However, as you grow in grace, you will define it as a definitive part of who you are based on your church teachings,  and personal relationship with God.

shall we bury this train of thought and move on?

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing!

Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls,

because I provide water in the desert

and streams in the wasteland,

to give drink to my people, my chosen,

the people I formed for myself

that they may proclaim my praise.

Isaiah 43:18-21

This scripture teaches us to

1) Forget the former things and do not dwell on the past.

2) Understand that God is doing new thing for His glory.

3) Receive it in Faith.

4) Praise God for He is worthy and give glory to Him, testify!!!

Lord Jesus loves us so much and His love endures forever.

In Christ,

In Christ,

If you are a true saint, filled with the Holy Ghost. The holy spirit will lead and guide you on how you should dress as becoming saints of God. Weather you be man/woman. Some of your comments are not holy please be mindful of what you say. There maybe members that are not saved on this site. Are we as saints showing an example?  Blessings
I think that we are showing examples of what the unsaved will encounter when they get in church.  Confusion, misinformation, disagreement, bickering and strife.  This is the perfect spot.
