But if you are not supposed to wer things that are manly isnt your robe manly. I believe and hae witnessed the rejection of many people when too many supposed laws are invoked in so called churches
I thought that DENY part would identify my stance on wearing pants. Because I do wear pants, but that doesn't mean it is right, I know that I don't DENY myself from wearing them, when I don't think it is appropriate in the church. I do wear them sometimes to church, because I allow my flesh to want to be comfortable, but God knows, the spirit arises and I feel convicted.
So there you go, I hope I made it clearer this time. When a person DENY him/or herself, they don't do what they want to do.

a simple "I am against wearing panys" would suffice. I find that in a multiplicity of words there is "nothing"
Your response is anything but clear.l
If you go around dressing and looking like everyone wants you to look you are a busy and confused person.
We do so much other stuff until we zero in on the unecessary things and let the whales slide on through
It tells women not to wear men clothes in the Bible. Now make that out what you want that to mean. I refuse to disrespect God house. He is a Holy God. If I have to dress a certain way to meet the Queen of England. I need to respect the Most High and Wonderful God House when I go to meet Him. I do wear pant when I go out. I don't wear them in the pulpit. God knows me afar off.
I will not let a woman up in my pulpit with pants on. Singing. preaching or whatever. I do what God has called me to do. I respect otherspoints of veiws. When I have visit a church and have seen women with pants on. and She has had a good word but I couldn't get into what she was saying and never went back. They lost me. I thank God for your work in winning souls.
Pastor Venus: I felt that spirit of conviction in your words. And you are so right on with the respect. But see I have a problem with woman wearing dresses on the pulpit, that is why they have to cover their laps, some even cover their ankles, because of the attraction to the knee and ankle of a woman. I don't know, we ALL will meet God one day and He will give each one their reward, I pray that I have taken His word. word for word, letter by letter and literally and not twisted it to my own way of thinking.
God said a woman should not adorn herself as a man and like wise a man should not adorn himself like a woman. I don't think that need to be changed, or develed into with great suspicion or concern. He said it, I believe it and that settles it for me. I just know that He will come quickly and I just pray that I am in line with HIS WORD and not mine.
In Love, Sis. Denise
Amen. Glory to the Highest. I cover my legs in the pulpit if the dress
is knee lenght. I have prayed about this. Maybe God will used this sister
in bringing His Word forth in pants so a soul could be saved. Whoever is saved, may learn of Him and feel that she should change as she grow in Him. I don't know. His ways are not our way. His thoughts are far above what I could think. I just want to respect Him. I love Him so much. When I do what I do. I show Him how much I respect Him in dress. talk.and action. I visited a church in downtown Montreal Canada years ago. I seen a nun come to the alter and pray. When the nun finish praying, she got up and bow before the alter and she back out away from the alter. I seen on television others that met the Queen and when finish speaking before the Queen they backed away from the Queen, and the Queen turned her back to them and walked away. They back all the way to the door, never turning their back on the Queen.
I saw this action the first time with the nun in a Cathedral. I am not Catholic. I just wanted to go into a church building and pray that day. When I witness this action from the num; I said wow! I like this. I have never stop doing this at the alter when I pray. WHAT great respect that I have for the King of King. His Name is Jesus.
