If you check out the dress codes in some Bible colleges' student manuals or catalogs that are considered by some as being "very strict," often times you will find modesty as defined by such institutions as having hemlines on women's apparel as extending at least one inch below the knee. I've got no argument with that, per se, but at the same time, I just wonder if some of the great Christians of bygone years that such Bible colleges as these extol as role models (e.g., D. L. Moody, C. H. Spurgeon, Jonathan Edwards, etc.) were to visit these campuses of "very strict" Bible colleges today, would not these same men be SHOCKED at the indecency of what these "very strict" Bible colleges would define as "modest." So, my question is this: Is "modesty" a concept that changes with the times and can be re-defined every 75-100 years? If these gentlemen had a certain criteria for what they considered to be "modesty" in their day and age, do we have any right to re-define the criteria of "modesty" for our day and age? If something was ever a sin, should it not forever be a sin? Were these gentlemen wrong to consider modesty in women's apparel that which would not even expose the ankle when, in fact, modesty as defined by these so-called "very strict" was in reality the true Bible standard? ...... Or are these so-called "very strict" Bible colleges wrong in the way they define modesty in women's apparel? Both of these groups cannot be right, can they?
