There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. “Proverb 14:12 KJV”
Many Christian believed wearing short dresses like skimpy dresses is a sin and they went on broadcasting it that it is a sin that women should stop wearing it, but as an individual, have we ever taking this into consideration why it is so? Although, some pastors are in support of ladies wearing mini-skirt, uncover clothes so why should we bother ourselves nailing the victim involved, after all, no specific dress a Christian should wear is not in the bible?
GOD SEES THE HEART
The roles of the pastor are to tell the mind of God and educate his audience concerning what is right or wrong. However, some pastors who failed to carry-out their duties and obligations while in service for one reasons or the other. Presently, pastors are in support of some of these dresses (skimpy dresses or worldly dresses as most Christian people referred it) because they don’t want to lose members so they went on preaching; “God sees the heart not what you wears”.
Sometimes, people belief the bible is somehow confusing or contradicting, but it is not, it all depends on how you were able to interpret it. If God sees the heart, it doesn’t mean He does not care about what you use your bodies for. God desire 100% holiness from anyone who comes to him. God did not just say He sees the heart or what he cares for is the heart alone what he does said was;
But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
1 Samuel 16:7 KJV”
At times we failed to see the right things and do the wrong thing thinking that was right for us, but Gods way are different. Sometimes when we develop interest in someone everything that person does, we will cease to picture the wrong doing because of the cordial relationship. This was what led God to sign the warning to Samuel, not to look at the outward appearance.
“If you shall make Me an altar of stone, you shall not build it on hewn stone; for if you use your tool on it, you have profaned it. Nor shall you go up by step to My altar, that your nakedness be not exposed on it” Exodus 20:25-26
God expectation is for everybody to be Holy and let the light in his elect shine that the mankind may see the light and glorifies God which is in heaven. If your pastor is in support of what is wrong, I would advise you to stop attending the church because what the scriptures means does not focus on heart alone, but the whole of your body including your thinking, it must be pure.
Do you know is not everybody that knows how to control their emotions? When I was a little younger there are some dresses I’d called the wolf in the city. I call it wolf because it lures people to sin against God. Some people are so fragile and lighter that when they set their eyes on woman nakedness it lures them to sin quickly because they can’t control their emotion.
I was in a bus transit one summer evening, not quite long after the bus left the fore-position; I heard the voice of a lady beside me, addressing a man that was behind her aggressively. “Get your hand-off of me, I don’t know you, I’ve never meet you before, so stay away from me” She shouted persistently.
It sound unpleasant to me so I turned aside to see what was happening, me turning aside to the lady, I was totally confused of what she wore, she wore a dotted net T-shirt, the shirt was transparent that her breast could be seen mere looking at her from afar off. She put on a mini tight skimpy-skirt that could not cover her lap, leaving her completely naked.
While I was busy stirring at her, then I remember a scripture which judge my immediate action “but I say unto you. That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Mathew 5:28”.
In short a while, the lady and the man alighted the bus at the same bus – stop and my attention was drawn to them once again due to the question the driver asked the victim, the man; ‘You’ve not sleep with her, but your short is wet, what will you do if she hug you?’. The victim felt hurt, I could feel it in his reaction to the speech. Now this lady believes nothing is wrong with her dresses and she’s holy according to what her pastor preached and here is a man who committed sin (lost, adultery, , )
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
What are your dresses, my reader? Have you join the group of people that’d say God sees the heart? Please don’t, it is not biblical neither the right way to dress modestly. Don’t let civilization or culture enslave you in this present generation of ours, but rather do what is right as it is written in the Bible. You may love to wear dresses that the lady in this article wore but why don’t you save your audience soul today by dressing moderately? I want you to realize millions of people are dying every day in sin. Stop your wayward dressing and saves millions of soul today. Remember your body is a temple of God (II Corinthians 6:16-18);
“What agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and torch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty”
“The wolves in the city are the ladies that dress waywardness”. I pray may God not use this article to judge us on the last day (judgment day)…Amen!
