Modesty in the Church

Hell dear sisters today I wanted to talk about modesty in the church, or the lack of I should say. Modestly dressed women AND men are a scarce thing to see in Church nowadays. Being modest in Church is severely lacking and doesn't really exist. Women come to church in mini skirts, shorts shorts, cleavage revealing outfits and much more inappropriate attire. Now you may be asking yourself, why are these items of clothing immodest to wear to church (or anywhere). The reason behind this is TOO MUCH SKIN. The whole point behind modesty is to cover up to not reveal one's self to anyone and everyone. ESPECIALLY in Church. Church is a sacred place, a place to worship God, our Creator. Modesty is an issue of the heart so I am asking you as a sister in Christ to look into your heart and ask yourself, would I want the Lord to see me dressed like this? If your a young lady think of this, when your brothers (in Christ) goes to worship the Lord in His home, do you want to cause your brother to stumble by having sinful thoughts about you IN THE MOST HOLY OF PLACES. Causing our brothers to stumble is a sin in and of itself, but to do so in the Lords home is horribly wrong and sinful. We women need to be respectful of the Lords home, we need to dress tastefully AND modestly. When you go to church you want all the attention on God, you shouldn't want all the attention draw on you in the Lord's home. People go there to worship, church is supposed to be safe place a place our brothers can go without the fear of stumbling and falling into sin.

1 Corinthians 10:31-33 

31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 32 Do not cause 

anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God- 33 even as I try to please 

everybody in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may 

be saved.

Another issue I wanted to address in "casual wear" to church. A good example I have come across is this:
You wouldn't wear jeans  and a T-shirt to a friends wedding, but you would wear it to you Creator's home? The One who made the Heavens and Earth? That just doesn't seem right, does it? People have lost a huge chunk of respect for our Lord. We need to get dressed in our finest and most modest attire to go and see and worship the Lord. We need to go back to having respect and reverence for his home. Look into your hearts brothers and sisters. God bless all!   

 Remember the asabbath day, to keep it bholy.

I agree that we should dress more respectful to the Lord but some of us don't have the money to buy clothes that are not casual. I cant afford new clothes so I go to church in what I have, I dont expose myself but I dont dress up either, I cant afford it. I go to wordhip the Lord, not to have a fashion show. If I had the money to buy clothes I would choose modest attire but since I dont , I think the Lord understands.

Thank You, that is true and being modest is also for men. They can also be a stumbling block to sin.

Remember the Sabbathday to keep it holy.

Are You thinking on the biblical restday? That sounds quite interesting.

God may bless You.
