 ADORNMENT

1 Tim 2:9 Also that women should adorn themselves modestly and appropriately and sensibly in seemly apparel, not with [elaborate] hair arrangement or gold or pearls or expensive clothing,

Volumes could be written about this blight in our midst today. There seems to be no boundaries, and few if any who are squawking about it. Lack of modesty issues are number one n this area, of course. Modesty, or lack thereof, is rock bottom, and then it just seems to go down hill from there.

We could all make lists, perhaps show pics of females we've seen in "church". And pastors/leaders wives are no exception. But I'm just going to mention one thing. LOW NECK LINE, whether it shows cleavage or not. When a woman dresses this way, there is ONLY one reason. She wants to look "attractive", sexually attractive, to men. ADULTERERESS!!!
And men, if you look at her, you commit ADULTERY WITH HER. This is blatant evil among us. The woman intends to be an occasion of SIN to other MEN. And if she be married, what a dishonor to her spouse! This is what HARLOTS do. Disgrace. That's DIS - GRACE. Disconnected from GRACE, ladies. And you husbands that allow your spouse to dress this way. What does that say about you?

If we are to restore the body to HIS BODY, this is a great place to begin. And the jewelry, nails, hairstyles that require lots of money and time at a "beauty salon"? Ha. Their definition of "beauty, is much different than what Paul described.

10 But by doing good deeds (deeds in themselves good and for the good and advantage of those contacted by them), as befits women who profess reverential fear for and devotion to God.

Well here we run square into hypocrisy. PRETENSE. They pretend to be "holy" (without understanding of what the word actually means.) but dress and act like the world. All blinged up. Dressing and acting in such a way as to draw attention unto themselves. Vs 10 above is an unknown commodity to them. Especially a lack of reverential fear for and devotion to YEHOVAH. Their existence is all about themselves. And what about the next verse?

11 Let a woman learn in quietness, in entire submissiveness.
Like a black hole. A huge void. Maybe we'll begin here another time. Shalom.

Ladies.....and Men.......

2Co 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
