    How can anyone believe that it is the will of God, for women to dress and look anyway other than according to the standards set here in the written word of God?

    Deuteronomy, Chapter 22
    5: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

    1 Timothy, Chapter 2
    9: In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
    10: But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

    1 Corinthians, Chapter 11
    6: For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

    1 Corinthians, Chapter 11
    7: For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

    1 Corinthians, Chapter 11
    8: For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.
    1 Corinthians, Chapter 11
    9: Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

    1 Corinthians, Chapter 11
    14: Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
    15: But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

    Pants are not men only garments. My wife does not wear my pants. She wears hers.

    Why do you make jest of a problem that is everywhere among Christian women? And getting worse. You cannot tell them from the world. Even the reverence for God's word has declined among the men of the church to the point that they even encourage the women to dress and look as they may. Not a women in the church should ever own a bikini. We will start there. Is that alright with you?

    Clothes were given to us to cover our nakedness, not accentuate it. This doesn't mean women cannot wear pants or men a kilt. But there are distinctions. Men are not to have long hair, nor women short. Paul's argument is that nature, not legalism teaches the elect this. Paul doesn't say men's hair must be two inches off their collar or that women's shirts have to be six inches below the knee. God has given you common sense, let's use it.

    We will start with bikini's. How could a Christian women ever wear one of these wicked things and not feel guilty? How could a Christian man ever allow his daughter or wife ever even own this wickedness much less wear it?

    Actually my daughter does have a two piece swim suit. However she wears shorts and a water shirt over them when she swims and looks quite decent. It's also easier to use the bathroom and she has an insulin pump which precludes her from wearing a one piece. I agree that women shouldn't wear only that. I view a bikini as underwear for swimming. Now we know it's not proper for a woman to run around in her underwear, which BTW is often more decent than swimwear, why is it OK on the beach or pool?

    You really want to start with bikinis, huh? :laugh: If she's secluded in her backyard by the pool with her husband, go for it. But these little two piece numbers that folks wear to public pools or the beach? No way.

    I would always ask parents why they would put their little girls in those little two piece bikinis when they would go to the beach or the pool? They think it's cute. (SMH)

    And are the bikinis any different from these discusting little "booty" shorts that every girl and her mama is wearing? It's like that's all the stores must sell because that's all the young girls wear.

    There is definitely a way to do it without being immodest.

    Good point because you know folks would have a fit if ladies were just walking around with something from Victoria's Secret on.

    I am not into bikinis and none of my daughters own one. When they marry, that is the choice of them and their husband but for now, no bikinis.

    But we all do own 2 piece tankinis. They are SO much nicer to use at the beach and you don't end up with a ton of sand in the nether regions. :)

    However, how do we put absolutes on what standard of dress do we have? Are 7" shorts more biblical than 5" shorts? What about a tank top? Are spaghetti straps sinful when 1" straps are not? What does the Bible say about the measurements? That is the problem.

    Here is an excellent article written by a friend of ours. She's 23 years old and recently married, the daughter of missionaries to Spain. :) http://gospeling.com/clothing-nakedness-and-the-gospel/

    That's another option that we give to the young ladies during camp.

    I think parents have just got to use a little common sense. If your daughter is going around and wearing shorts where they are just an abbreviated bikini bottom, it's too short. And that's what the majority of the shorts are now that they are selling.

    I think again, we're dealing with modesty. And I think mom's, because they have been there, can honestly answer these questions. Are you wearing the spaghetti straps because you're trying to look sexy, more mature, etc? What's the real purpose?

    I like what she says at the end :

    Is it Preacher of Truth or is it Preacher of Legalism. Next thing you know he will be starting a thread on "The Ungodly and Mixed Bathing."

    If the wife wears it in the privacy of just her and her husband, where's the problem?

    Daughter I could not condone, but wife, if it's just the husband and wife, what's the big deal?

    Most women over 30 years old have no business wearing a two piece swim suit, much less a bikini. By wearing them many women redefine immodesty, and not in a prurient way. My family has vacationed in the Wisconsin Dells for years and let me tell you--well, I'll simply say that America has a problem with obesity.

    A bikini covers a girl's nakedness and pertains to a girl, so what's wrong with it?

    Top and bottom covered for a girl, loin cloth for a guy. Covered. All good. An animal skin from a sacrifice would do that. Unless a really big animal was the first sacrifice, what do you think the first clothes covered? Given the climate, doesn't make sense that they were covered in fur coats. I'm guessing more along the lines of thin little coverings. Maybe like a bikini or bikini cover style throw for Eve and a loin cloth for Adam. Or maybe they, um, had the exact same thing and the differences in dress came later. Hrm.

    It's a great option too. There are many wonderful choices out there that are modest, cover, are safe (those "swim costumes" that the modesty sites sell are not always safe especially when swimming in strong currents or around boats).



    Actually, the majority for young people are very short but there are still a ton of great choices at places like Land's End, Old Navy and the like. I prefer shorts to be 5" inseam or longer but my running shorts are a little shorter than that because they are a better choice for the sport.



    I think cuteness and coolness would be the main reason. Some of them are very cute and man, you can't beat them when it's 100+ degrees! :)



    It's a very well done article, isn't it? I'm so proud of her. :D

    It is a sign of rebellion in spirit for people to go half way undressed in public wearing shorts, short dresses, no shirts, ect. They do this to draw attention to their bodies if they are young but if they are old and fat they want to scare people.
