Why? Who are we trying to impress? Why are you showing off your body?
Now, I truly respect those who don’t even know who the above celebrities are. But people like these celebrities appear to have a serious influence on professing Christian young women.
Tight tops, tight pants, short skirts… Why not just attend fellowship meetings in your underwear?
Why do you WANT to look like a prostitute?
What constitutes modest dress is a disputable matter among followers of Jesus. I have no authority to force my convictions on anyone. I don’t want to, because I don’t want to be a pharisee.
So how do we deal with this issue? I don’t want to destroy friendships by their perceiving that I’m laying my “legalism” on them. But, somehow we must examine these things together!
I am no goody-good myself. But I pray that I can properly represent my Lord and I want to please Jesus in everything I do, think, or say.
Young sisters, won’t you please consider these concerns about tight tops, tight pants, and short skirts? Fathers and young husbands, don’t you have the courage to speak up to your wife and daughters? Mothers and young wives, won’t you submit to your husband and won’t you have the courage to speak to your daughters?
We are the Bride of Christ, NOT the Whore of Babylon!
