A Christian must always be dressed modestly (decently). Whether male or female, Jesus Christ must be revealed in your dressing.
Modest means not extravagant, moderate or restrained in amount, extent, etc
Decency means correct, honorable or modest
Decent means conforming to standards of decency, avoiding obscenity, respectable, acceptable or good enough.
Christian Modest Dressing
How we dress our bodies is so much important to God because
1. The body is God’s temple; it is the dwelling place of God.
1 Cor 3:16: Do you know that you are God’s temple and God’s spirit dwells in you?
John 14:23: Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
If the body is God’s temple, His temple must be dressed appropriately to His standards.
2. To not make your brother or sister sin
When it is only you and God, how you dress does not matter much because even when you are nude taking shower, sleeping naked, married couples having sexual intercourse, etc, God is there with you; dwelling in you.
But it is good to cover yourself when you pray and this does not mean that God is with you only when you are praying.
Dressing is about how we reveal/manifest Jesus Christ to people. It is about how we take care of our brothers and sisters not to sin.
Christianity comes from the word ‘Christ-like’ and any person claiming to be a Christian must be Christ-like. Jesus Christ always cared about other people, making sure that they do not sin because of Him.
Mark 9:42 But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea
Paul was Christ-like and he said,
1 Cor 8: 13 Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never again eat meat lest I make my brother stumble.
A true Christian is always mindful of his/her brother and sister and this is true love.
Your dressing can make your brother and sister stumble and sin. If you make your brother or sister sin, it is better if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea (1 Cor 8:13)
The way you dress will make your brother or sister commit adultery and fornication; sin.
The way you dress will make your brother or sister see Jesus Christ because God is revealed in how you dress His temple; the body.
Yes! We have the freedom to dress the way we like but we must beware lest somehow our liberty become a stumbling block to our brothers or sisters.
1 Cor 8: 9 But beware that lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak.
Therefore, to not make your brother or sister sin, how must a Christian dress?
How a Christian must dress
A Christian must dress in a manner that reveals/manifests God to the world and in a manner that does not make a brother or sister sin.
But if a Christian accepts the world, dresses like the world, what is the difference between such a Christian and the world?
The Bible says,
1 John 2:15: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
If you dress like of the world (you love the world dressing) the love of the Father is not in you.
You are the salt of the world and when you mix yourself with the world, you lose flavor hence good for nothing.
Mt 5:13: You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
You are also the light of the world.
Mt 5:14: You are the light of the world.
As the light of the world, you must dress in a manner that makes human beings on the world glorify your father in heaven; dress in a manner that reveals the light to the world.
Mt 5:16: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
The world is pushing for nudity to be a norm; for humans to expose the temple of God. It pushes for a dressing manner that exposes private body parts that must remain private. It pushes to make God’s temple (body) an ‘advertising billboard’.
Satan has his clothing and fashions. Christians must be able to discern. Before you buy or put on a cloth, look at what it represents. Many cloths are branded with devil worship signs and as you wear them, you become part of the devil worshipers perpetrating and transmitting Satan worship.
Therefore, how must a male and female Christian dress?
How a Christian lady must dress
The world tells and pushes for ladies to dress sexy. Dressing sexy according to the world is exposing female private body parts; exposing God’s temple.
The world pushes and wants ladies to dress like harlots; prostitutes.
A prostitute is identified by her dressing. The way you dress identifies who you are; Are you a prostitute or are you a God’s Child?
Proverb 7:10: And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of a harlot
Harlots have a dressing code. A Christian lady must not dress like a harlot.
Female private body parts must remain private (covered) only to be seen by God and your husband.
Female private body parts entices males sexually; makes males commit adultery and fornication in their minds (they have sexual intercourse with you in their minds). This is making your brother sin and better if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea (1 Cor 8:13).
The following female body parts are private and must only be seen by God and your husband.
In the Bible and in the Kingdom of God, there is nothing called cleavage but breast. Any part of female’s breast is a breast and breasts are private; they must remain private thus well covered/dressed.
Breasts are only for your husband satisfaction not for public satisfaction.
Proverb 5:19: Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
Why do you want to show your breasts to all males? Why do you want to satisfy all males sexually with your breasts? You are sinning.
Female thighs are private and they must remain private thus decently dressed. A thigh starts from the knee up thus a Christian lady must not wear any cloth that does not cover her from the knee up.
Mini-skirts are of the world; they expose your thighs. Female thighs entice males sexually.
You must not wear mini-skirts in public. Wear them when you are with your husband; reveal your thighs only to your husband. Let him be the only male to get satisfaction from your thighs.
Stop feeding the public; stop satisfying all males sexually. You are sinning sister.
Ladies cover your waist; It is private. Let it remain private only for your husband.
Dress your behind well; not revealing it. We do not want to see how big or small it is. Show it only to your husband for his sexual satisfaction.
5. Inner wears
Inner wears (pants, bras, bikers, etc) must remain private and this is the reason they are called inner wears. Only reveal then to your husband for his pleasure.
Any other female private body part must be kept private.
Males are sexually enticed by female private body parts and if you do not dress them decently, if you expose or reveal them to every male, you are sinning by making your brother sin when he haves sexual intercourse with you in his mind as you entice him sexually.
Keep your private body parts only for your husband to enjoy, be sexually enticed and satisfied. They were created only for your husband not for every male.
How a Christian male must dress
Likewise, males must cover or decently dress their private body parts. They are only to be seen by your wife and God.
Any male private body part that sexually entices females must be fully covered; decently dressed.
The following male body parts are private and they sexually entice females thus they must be decently dressed.
Dress your chest well that it does not reveal itself to females; It only for your wife sexual satisfaction.
2. Hand muscles (Biceps)
Dress your hand muscles well that they are not revealed to females to sexually entice them. They are only for your wife pleasure.
3. Inner wears
All inner wears must remain private; just between you, your wife and God.
Any other male private body part that sexually entices females must remain covered, decently dressed, only to be seen and enjoyed by your wife for her satisfaction.
The female body was created only for her husband’s pleasure and sexual satisfaction while the man’s body was created only for his wife’s pleasure and sexual satisfaction (one male for one female).
Reason Paul says,
1 Cor 7:3-4: Let the husband render unto the wife due affection: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife has not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband has not power of his own body, but the wife.
In the presence of your husband/wife, you are free to dress in whichever manner you like even staying nude. For your husband/wife pleasure and sexual satisfaction dress in any way s/he wants when you are just the two of you. That is not a sin.
But in presence of your brothers and sisters, in the public, you must dress honorably, decently, fully covering all private body parts to not make your brother or sister sin which is a sin upon you.
The don’t care spirit, not caring about your brother or sister if they sin because of you is not the spirit of God but Satan spirit. A true Christian cares that s/he does not make his/her brother or sister sin because the sin is upon her/him.
Let your freedom in dressing not make your brother or sister sin.
1 Cor 8: 9 But beware that lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak.
A true Christian walks according to God’s standards neither according to his/her standards nor world standards.
Public nudity is a sin
If in public you do not dress decently, you do not dress according to God’s standards, you are sinning and the sins of your brothers and sisters committed because of you are upon you.
If you have pictures or clips in the public not dressed according to God’s standards, you are sinning.
Social Media (facebook, twitter, instagram, google plus, whatssup, etc) are full of nudity and even Christians have sunk deeply in this Satan’s world and accepted it as a norm.
As you accept the world, doing what the world is doing, know that the love of your Father in heaven is not in you (1 John 2:15).
Pictures and clips from social media of men/females exposing their private body parts are going to pornography sites into the devil kingdom. From that nude picture and clip, Satan realizes demons which comes to haunt you and you wonder why you cannot keep your pants up, why you are having sexual intercourse with every male/female you see and why you have strange sexual tendencies.
It is these Satan demons realized to you through your nude picture or clip at work in you. Wake up.
Stop transmitting nudity and pornography. Be a light and a salt to the world. Filter your social media and if its friends you have to do away with, do. It is better to loose friends than to go to hell.
In my social media profiles I have a rule;
Example in facebook
‘To all my facebook friends: – If you post any pornography, perverting and transmitting sexual immorality and nudity, I will strike you out of my friends list.
To all ladies: – My male friends and I do not want to see your breasts in name of cleavage neither your thighs nor any private body part that sexually appeals men. Show it to your man alone not us. Keep private body parts private.
To all men: – My female friends do not want to see yours muscles in name of biceps, chest or any other private body part that sexually appeals ladies. Show it to your woman alone not us. Keep private body parts private’
This makes me clean; neither accepting nor transmitting nudity and pornography which will make my brothers/sisters sin and the sin be upon me.
I better lack friends and obey my creator and inherit the kingdom of heaven rather than being with over a billion friends and burning in hell. But like Elijah, I know I am not alone but there are others who do not defile themselves with the world.
You have the freedom now to choose. Choose between dressing like a harlot or dressing like a child of God. Choose between sinning and being righteous. Choose between hell and heaven. The choice is in your hands.
If you are a Christian as you claim to be, you will choose being a child of God thus dressing honorable and decently not making your brother and sister sin because the sin is upon you. You will choose heaven not hell.
But some people having know the truth, they have gone back to entangle themselves with the world but I tell you that you end is worse than your beginning.
2 Pet 2:20: For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
It is God’s standards not humanity/worldly standards.
