1. They outline the lower half of the body: In this picture nothing is really left to guess about the lower half of these women's bodies, you can perfectly see the outlining of her legs, thighs and rear. Even on a looser pair of pants you can still tell the outlining of these areas.Pants not only outline the lower half of the body but they also blur the line between men and women dressing differently from one another. (hence the term "boyfriend jeans")The clothes that women wear send a message, if a Christian women is wearing a pair of tight pants she is telling the world I really don't care about modesty, which can be a very confusing testimony for some because it states clearly in the Bible Christian women are to dress modestly. (1 Timothy) Long skirt's are much more modest.
Even these "looser" pants outline places of the body that shouldn't be focused on, and the way pants are designed there's a triangle shape that leads up the body like an arrow.
2. They aren't feminine: Pant's were originally designed for men, pants only became women's wear when women would borrow the pants of there boyfriends (hence the name boyfriend jeans)
“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a
woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” Deuteronomy
I do believe that pants were originally made for men and although they eventually produced pants made for women I don't believe that makes them Biblical to wear, if a women wore a loose shirt, jeans and sneakers couldn't a man walk in that's dressed exactly like her? I believe this blurs the line of differences between the sexes placed there by God, and I believe that's what this Bible verse is talking about.
I understand other people's view that if you wear a long shirt or something to cover the front and back of the outlined lower body, but to me this still wouldn't feel feminine or modest. The lower leg would still be outlined by the pants.
3.Many Christian men have expressed that they won't find pants to be modest on women, they to claim that the outlining of the lower body can be a stumbling block for them. The wearing of pants doesn't go both ways because women don't have the same mind set as men do. Men can fall into sinful thoughts just by looking at a women, we don't want to be stumbling blocks to our brothers rather we want to be encouraging in their walks with God.
It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that causes your brother to stumble.
Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a
stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.
So these are the reasons I don't wear pants and don't encourage my Christian sisters to do so. God bless dear sisters, please feel free and share you opinions in the comments!
