Don’t Advertise What You’re Not Willing to Give

Don’t Advertise What You’re Not Willing to Give

Recently, I shared an experience I had when I was 15 years old and just turned 16. The summer that I was 15 years old, I went to the beach often with a guy my age. He was tall and handsome. I had a major crush on him. My mom wouldn’t let me to date until I was 16 years old, so she was the one taking us to the beach. At the beach, I wore a tiny bikini. He…

What Does Dressing Modestly Mean?

What Does Dressing Modestly Mean?

What are God’s instructions to women concerning modesty? They are clear in 1 Timothy 2:9,10: “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; But which becometh women professing godliness with good works.” What does modest apparel mean? Some have told me that it simply means not wearing “costly array” as the verse clearly states. Is this all it means? No. Right after…

Modesty and Lust are Sides of the Same Coin

Modesty and Lust are Sides of the Same Coin

Matthew West made a song titled “Modest is Hottest.” He created and sang it for his daughters. “The jokey, satiric song urged his young daughters to choose ensembles that are a ‘little more Amish, a little less Kardashian’ because ‘modest is hottest, then latest fashion trend.’ Elsewhere in the video, West said, ‘If I catch you doing dances on the TikTok in a crop top, so help me God you’ll be grounded till the world stops.’” Matthew West then took…

Back When There was Decency and Modesty

Back When There was Decency and Modesty

My mom was raised before the sexual revolution. Decency and modesty were valued in America. Sexual deviancy and immorality were frowned upon. Here’s a comment that was left on my Facebook page under my post from last Friday called The Progression of Sexual Sin in Our Culture: “Not to mention such things were not openly discussed; it was improper and shameful. Women used to take an escort when attending outings and gatherings so she would not look like a loose…

Dressing and Acting Like a Harlot

Dressing and Acting Like a Harlot

“And behold among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding, Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house, In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night: And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house” (Proverbs 7:7-11). Here’s a man; a man…

Fleshly Lusts War Against the Soul

Fleshly Lusts War Against the Soul

A friend sent me an article about Kim Kardashian wearing an extremely immodest dress to some event she and Kanye West were attending together. Kanye said to Kim, “I went through this transition where being a rapper, looking at all these girls and looking at my wife, like, ‘Oh, my girl needs to be just like the other girls showing their body off. I didn’t realize that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone who is married…

Women Easily Manipulating Men

Women Easily Manipulating Men

There’s a young women from Philia Ministries who shared her testimony on YouTube a few months ago. She lived a godless life before coming to the Lord. She was a model and was living high according to the world’s standards. She was a Jezebel with a feminist spirit as many women are these days. They are seeking their own pleasures regardless of the cost to others. One phrase she said stood out to me. She admitted how easy it was…

Opposite of the Modest Housewife Who Stays at Home

Opposite of the Modest Housewife Who Stays at Home

“A woman with the attire of a harlot, and subtil of heart. She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house” (Proverbs 7:10,11). Unfortunately, these verses describe too many women today – an adulteress, a whore, or a “strange” or “evil” woman, as the Bible calls them and are completely opposite to what God calls women to be. She dresses with the “attire of a harlot.” Gill’s Exposition: “She dresses with showy gaudy garments; the word signifies…

Modesty and Beauty Should Go Together

Modesty and Beauty Should Go Together

Written By Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies Modesty and beauty should go together. Both enhance one another. Modesty does not have to be old-fashioned and drab. There are some dear Christian women who feel they must wear plain and drab clothes to be modest. But we don’t find this anywhere in the Bible. Far from the truth. The Proverbs 31 woman was dressed beautifully in “fine linen and purple.” When Sarah went down to Egypt, the Pharaoh of Egypt noticed…

His Battle With and Victory Over Sexual Immorality and Lust

His Battle With and Victory Over Sexual Immorality and Lust

I, Pastor Joseph, received this letter from a brother in Christ who wanted to share his battle with and victory over sexual immorality and lust while calling both men and women to join in with this battle. I believe this heartfelt letter should move us to a love for God’s design for sex and for personal holiness. I hope that men will be encouraged in their battle with temptation and I pray that women will be convicted to love modesty…
