STATEMENT OF MODESTY
"In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in MODEST APPAREL, with shamefacedness and sobriety; . . . " 1 Timothy 2:9
Today I would feel very uncomfortable wearing or dressing my daughters in immodest clothing. However I did not always see things this way. My conscience tells me it would be against God's Word allowing nakedness or wearing a harlot's attire (Proverbs 7:10). In America we are confronted with this every time we go in public places and we are being desensitized and growing accustom to it.
I have witnessed the decline of morals in America over the last fifty years to match the changes in attitudes toward provocative dress styles. These have become accepted as the norm today. Some even thought to be modest by today's standards would have shocked Americans less than fifty years ago.
A modestly dressed lady will turn fewer men's heads. Not being provocative in dress will send a message of wholesomeness. Godly men appreciate a woman dressed modestly. They know Christ said, "That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."
My husband has told me that men which attend church know this and it does bother them. They know, they have a personal battle with their eyes and thoughts; some even request prayer in men's prayer groups to help them over-come this personal battle. Yet they probably will not normally say so and they will not look your way as much, unless it is a single man looking for a Godly mate instead of a sensually motivated relationship.
For this reason we DO NOT sew: sleeveless, slit skirts, mid-rifts, low cut neck lines, or low backs. We apologize if this offends anyone but our goal is to help both ladies and men keep from inciting lasciviousness (wrong lusts). We view this as a sewing ministry and only want to plant good seeds.
Lasciviousness: 2 Cor.12:21, Galatians 5:19-21, Eph.4:19, 1Peter4:3, Jude1:4, and Mark 7:22 in the King James Version of the Bible. May God bless you as you study HIS Word.
