1 Corinthians 2:1, "And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God." Excellency of speech: speak down (negative) of other people as if you were so much better (excellent) than them or Wisdom: people who think they have you figured out (wisdom) and know all about what you are doing wrong and what you need to do to get right.
1 Corinthians 2:2, "For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified." Paul is not concerned with talking about women wearing pants in the church. All Paul needs to know is if you have accepted Christ as Lord, asked Christ to forgive you of your sins and that you are now saved by grace because Christ is the atoning sacrifice. (crucified).
1 Corinthians 2:8, "Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. Those people who think they have you figured out if they only knew. They never knew that God had a plan for your life or they would have never put their mouth on you (crucified) trying to defame, slander and put you down. God has chosen your life for his glory from before the foundations of the world.
1 Corinthians 2:9, "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." "Eye has not seen" (what you think you know) is referring to man's wisdom, "nor ear heard" (you don't know what you are talking about) is referring to excellency of speech. God is going to do some things in your life that people are not going to understand all so that you can have a testimony of the glory of God.
This is for the ladies. Let's say you are working on a construction job around a group of unsaved men and part of your job you have to climb a ladder would you wear a dress or a pair of jeans or you have to work in a hole repairing pipes or wires. What about if you had to go to a place where you had to climb up,down, over, and around mountains, boulders and and other assorted rocks and trees would you still be wearing a dress or skirt?
The bible says that women should not wear men's clothing vice versa.
The questions is what is women's clothing and wha tis men's clothing.
A pair of women pant is not a pair of male pant. I would hope so.
Praise the Lord :
Regarding the Issue of Women wearing pants in the church...Its a tradition of Men that Women not wear Pants in the Church/
Jesus ask the Pharisee's in Mt/ Chp.7 "why they made the word of God of non effect by holding too the traditions of the Elders"?
Referencing the Washing of hands before eating.....Its what comes out of the Heart which defiles a man..not what goes into him.
The Old testament Scripture " A Woman shold not wear that which pertaineth to a "Man" was referring to the priest garments...not Traditiona pants worn by Men in general.....
Praise the Lord Elder Denny......The scriptures is talking about the Priest garments worn by the Levites designated by God too serve in the dutties of the temple and minister too the people of God....I dont recall any female Priest....So that which pertaineth too a Man..would be the Priest Garments worn during service in the Temple...Not Pants worn by Men
