Our last post was about lazy men, now another subject. This message applies to Christian women, not non-believers visiting a church.
Those within the church that refuse to respect Biblical modesty will probably unBiblcally judge this Pastors’ heart. They might even wrongfully call him a “legalist,” “self-righteous,” of even “unloving” for preaching the truth in love.
These are adhomin attacks that the enemy throws up as a smoke screen, or distraction device to silence the truth. This Pastor gave these below two messages, because he loves the men and women in his church.
Brethren, God fearing men come to church to see more Christ, not more cleavage. Or as a friend once told me, “God-fearing men come to church to keep their eyes on the Prize, not on her thighs.”
Men should not have to be faced with the visualization of exposed – sexually oriented body parts while attending ‘church. That building we call ‘church’ ought to be a place to go where there is less temptation. Brethren don’t allow Satan to lure you in. And don’t allow Satan, to use you as his bait!
However modest dress is applicable to everywhere you go, 24/7.
The Lord Jesus Christ doesn’t want us to cause others to stumble. “And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea” (Mark 9:42).
“A church serves as a sanctuary, from the continual barrage of temptation towards sin.” C.J. Mahaney.
In addition to these two videos from Pastor CJ, you can watch my message on this subject, taken out of 1st John 2:15-29.
