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…

Why are Women SO Offended When Told Leggings are Immodest?

Why are Women SO Offended When Told Leggings are Immodest?

Yesterday, my post was about leggings being immodest and young teenage girls being told to wear a long shirt to cover them up. This caused an outcry among women and many were offended. Women are offended whenever I write about leggings being immodest so I asked the wise women in the chat room why they thought this was the case and here are some of their answers. (We must remember that whatever we do, we are to glorify the LORD…

Telling Girls to Dress Modestly is Not Shaming Them

Telling Girls to Dress Modestly is Not Shaming Them

According to a “feminist flash mob,” telling junior high girls to NOT wear leggings is shaming them and promotes a rape culture. I can tell you that this makes zero sense to me and these women have no wisdom. They are foolish women. How does telling young girls to not dress immodestly shame them and promote a rape culture? I have no idea! In the article, a feminist tweeted, “#RapeCultures When we tell 13 year old girls they can’t wear…

Buying Modest Clothing

Buying Modest Clothing

As you can see from my blog, I don’t have any advertisements. I never wanted to be beholden to advertisers and my goal in writing was never to make money. Yes, I have made a bit of money on my book but not nearly as much as I spent to make it! But I didn’t write a book to make money. I did it to continue the ministry of biblical womanhood to women. Sometimes I will be asked to advertise…

Stop Enticing Men!

Stop Enticing Men!

Written By Britt Williams God hates unlawful nakedness. Practically speaking, this is why God gave us clothes: to cover our nakedness. Hence, God was the first tailor, clothes were His idea. Modesty is especially important for women. Men and women are different. They think differently and are tempted differently in regards to the opposite sex. Generally speaking, men are more enticed by what they see, whereas, women are more moved by how they are treated. “And it came to pass…

No Discretion When It Comes to Breastfeeding

No Discretion When It Comes to Breastfeeding

We were having a discussion in the chat room recently about breastfeeding. It’s amazing how many Christian women think it’s fine and dandy to openly breastfeed their babies and show their breasts to men who aren’t their husbands. It riles women up when I teach them to be modest and discreet even while breastfeeding. They falsely believe that breasts aren’t sexual and it’s men’s fault if they like to see breasts while nursing because they are “perverts.” Women have told…

Should Christian Women Wear Leggings?

Should Christian Women Wear Leggings?

Recently, I asked the women in the chat room this question: “Would your husband say that leggings or yoga pants that don’t cover up the back and front side are immodest and if so, why?” Hannah:  “He’s okay with me wearing yoga pants as long as they are worn at home, but he wouldn’t allow me to wear them in public, long shirt or not. As far as leggings, he’s okay with me wearing leggings in public so long as…

Modesty Matters to Our Holy Lord

Modesty Matters to Our Holy Lord

Written By David C. Cook MODESTY MATTERS TO OUR HOLY LORD! I HOPE YOU WILL READ AND SHARE THIS. Clothes were created by God to “cover and conceal” the body and not to “allure and reveal” the body. Modesty involves dressing in such a way as not to draw attention to the body. Immodesty is dressing in a way that is indecent and sensual and reveals pride of appearance above being humble and pleasing the Lord in dressing in a…

Acting and Dressing Like a Harlot

Acting and Dressing Like a Harlot

Many women today dress and act like harlots. A harlot is a woman who prostitutes her body for hire and who forsakes the true God and worships idols. We must study how a harlot dresses and acts to make sure we don’t resemble one in any way. “And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of a harlot, and subtil of heart” (Proverbs 7:10). What is the attire of a harlot? It is “showy gaudy (extravagant and costly)…
