WHY THE WOMEN IN MY CHURCH DON’T WEAR PANTS

pants The following are five of the most absurd reasons that I have heard during my ministry:
  1. MOST OF MY PASTOR FRIENDS HAVE THIS STANDARD, AND I DON’T WANT TO LOSE THEIR FRIENDSHIP.
 
  1. I NEEDED A BIBLE VERSE TO JUSTIFY THIS STANDARD, SO I PULLED ONE OUT OF THE OLD TESTAMENT. (“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 22:5. We hope no one sees “Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.” Deuteronomy 22:11. We would look like hypocrites, and we could not explain why we don’t obey it.)
 
  1. THUS, OUR WOMEN WEAR DRESSES, EVEN THOUGH THE CLEAVAGE IS TO THE BELLY BUTTON, THE LENGTH IS UP TO THE THIGH, AND IT IS SO TIGHT THEY HAD TO USE VASELINE TO SLIP ONTO IT. THANK GOD, AT LEAST THEY AREN’T WEARING PANTS!
 
  1. I’VE BEEN TOLD THAT WOMEN WHO WEAR PANTS ARE “HUSSIES, WORLDLY, IMMODEST, AND VIOLATING SCRIPTURE.” WE DON’T WANT ANY OF THOSE WOMEN IN OUR CHURCH. THEY WILL CORRUPT THE GOOD GODLY WOMEN.
 
  1. CHURCHES MUST SET STANDARDS ON HOW PEOPLE DRESS.

    Sharon, the matter concerning dress is a culture one. I have traveled most countries of the world and found that their food, and dress differs from one country. I have no problem with pastors setting standards for his church workers. The issue is, when one tries to make it a Scriptural or moral issue. This is a very important point; Paul is the Apostle to the gentiles and the church. He wrote the church epistles, Romans through Philemon. He never declared one day more important than the other, he never established a diet for anyone, and he never set dress standards for anyone. If a wife is in doubt about her dress attire, she should ask her husband. I hope this helps a little.
