I might regret starting this discussion on my blog, simply because there are many reasons why someone could point a finger at me, but nevertheless, I’m extremely curious what other women think about this touchy subject.
We all know what men think, but how do we feel? Should there be such a thing as a dress code? Is it sinful to look at the fashion world and follow the current trends? When I say ” the appearance of a Christian woman” I mean how she dresses, acts, and lives her DAILY life.
I found this on the internet last night and thought it would be a perfect way to start this discussion.
Through His Word, the Holy Bible, God gives us a simple and clear yet general instruction in I Timothy 2:9: “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel…” The word “modest” is defined in Collin’s English Dictionary as: 1. having or expressing a humble opinion of oneself or one’s accomplishments or abilities; 2. reserved or shy; 3. not ostentatious or pretentious; 4. not extreme or excessive, moderate; 5. decorous or decent. Therefore, God expects a woman to dress in a proper, well-mannered fashion—certainly not in a provocative, outlandish or excessive way. Christians are to be examples to those around them, living the pages of the Bible for those who never read them. Their appearance and actions should exude stability and good judgment.
So ladies, what is your opinion? What are your thoughts?
