1 Timothy 2:9-10
likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-
control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for
women who profess godliness—with good works.
The Bible gives pretty clear instructions hear so why then do Christian women ignore what the Bible says?
1# They Want To Fit In:
People Don't Want to stand out, or be thought as of different or weird. What I would ask of these type of people is to look into your heart and ask yourself who do I want to please? God, The Creator Of Heaven
and Earth or the mortal people that opinions don't really matter?
2# Styles Have Changed:
True Styles have changed but men's minds have not. When it comes to this area we not only need to focus on what God commands but also what our "new fashions" are causing our brothers in Christ to do: Stumble.
I will admit it is harder to be modest in the hot or even cold weather. But instead of focusing on OUR discomfort think of this, The Lord died on the cross for us. Do we really think that that was "comfortable"
for Jesus? OF COURSE NOT. But He did it for us, to save us, so in return we as His daughters should obey His words no matter how uncomfortable it makes US.
4# Not Attractive
A lot of why women don't want to dress modest is this: They want the opposite sex to find them attractive. Here's what this issue boils down to, unless that person is your husband it is a sin to try and make him desire you sexually. However it is not a sin to try and be attractive, you can be attractive without dressing provocative or in the way that's going to cause you brother to stumble. And not every man you meet is going to be YOUR husband, but a majority of them will be someone else's someday, so in a way, the manner in which some women are dressed is causing men to stumble into adultery in their hearts with someone that isn't there future wife.
And so I will leave you with this, I love what this fellow Christian blogger says here.
Many people will say, "Well, God looks on the heart. God doesn't care what you look like on the outside. God just looks on the heart." That is true. God does look on the heart, but man cannot see the heart. Man can only see the outer. Not only that, the outer appearance is usually a pretty good indicator of what is in a person's heart. Although it is possible to look right on the outside and be wrong on the inside, it is well nigh impossible to look right on the outside and be right on the inside. What is on the outside comes from the inside. That is why Jesus said, "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh" (Matthew 12:34). Granted, a man could say the right things, and have a wrong heart, but a man who had a right heart would never say the wrong things. So the outer appearance is the only indicator that man has that someone is right with God, right in their heart. So God does care how we look. Not only does God care how we look, there are rules in the Bible for both men and women that should govern our appearance. Now, whenever you start to talking about these rules, the women are always the first ones to complain, because there are more rules for the women than there are for the men. And I often wonder why the Bible has all these rules for the women and very few rules for the men, and the reason why is because men and women are made differently. I know that is not a "politically correct" thing to say, but it is none the less true. God made man and women differently.
