Well, I know some people will be offended by this post. That is all right. The truth sometimes hurts. Ouch!
My intention is not to offend but to bring awareness and correction to something that is an ongoing issue in our churches today.
I have lived on 3 continents; Africa, Europe and North America. Its is the same issue all over. This is not just an America issue.
If we call ourselves Christians, shouldn’t we act like one? Christian means to be Christ-like. Are you truly portraying Christ in the way you dress?
The line that once distinguished Christians from non Christians has become severely blurred.
It is easier to judge those in the world for their bad behaviors. They don’t know any better. They are not saved and their minds are not renewed. What then shall we say of our fellow sisters in the Lord showing off their blessed assurance for all to see? Are they still in the world, too? 1 Timothy 2:9 says, “ I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety.”
The church is no longer a safe place for the saints. All week-long you deal with all sorts at work and on television. Then you go to church to praise the Lord, still you can’t get away from it.
It is called the CLEAVAGE. It is everywhere because some women can’t just help but bring them out for all to see!
God, help the brothers who are coming to church on Sundays. It’s right in their faces. Then sisters are surprised when a brother goes to another church to find his wife. Go figure!
Try keeping your female parts to yourself. Just maybe that brother will give you a second look.
Your body belongs to God. 1 Corinthians 6:19 says, “ Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.”
If we can all see your cleavage, what else are you showing to the world? Certainly not your brain!
Ladies, in the name of God wear a bra. Wear your size. Our bodies change after childbirth, after loosing weight or putting on weight. Go to a bra specialist and get fitted at least once a year. Select a bra that does not show your nipples (might as well not wear a bra).
Get some camisoles. These are wardrobe basic essentials – colors in white and black will do for starters.
Ladies if you are on the big side, you can’t wear some of the latest fashions. But you can still look classy without looking cheap and trashy.
The spirit of Jezebel is alive in the church. She comes out every Sunday with her guns on display. Her main agenda is to distract the saints, not just the men. We see you ladies and we are not fooled one bit.
Am tired of sisters acting like its nothing. Like it’s no big deal. You are misrepresenting yourselves when you have the ‘girls’ on display like that.
You are missing out on being invited out because of the ‘girls’. You will be passed over for promotion because you make people uncomfortable. You will not find gainful employment easily. Men will reach the wrong conclusion about you and only the wrong type will approach you with wrong intentions.
You can still be beautiful without exposing all your “blessed assurance”. Learn to adorn yourself the proper way that brings Glory to God. There should be a distinction between the children of light and the children of darkness.
Just because you were once in the world doesn’t mean you should stay there. Leave the past behind and embrace your future. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
This doesn’t just apply to single women. There are married women parading themselves, too. Oh My Lord! What happened to the strong men of valor? Husbands, arise and be the men that God called you to be and grow some back-bone. Speak to your wife about her appearance. Before long you will have your daughters cleavage in your face too. Remember “as goes the mother, so goes the daughter”.
Where are our mothers? Titus 2:4-5 says, “Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”
Are you really trying to win souls for Christ or send them to hell? What do you hope to achieve?
Majority of the culprits are not the new “born again Christians”. Isn’t that something? They are the old timers. They have been around so long that sometimes people are used to their bad behavior. Maybe they are afraid to confront them in order not to offend. How long will this go on? For another decade?
These poor Pastors preaching on the pulpit are struggling with the amount of cleavage in their faces. Ladies leave your cleavage at home, please. THANK YOU.
I am not jealous. I am appalled. I am blessed in the cleavage department myself. Some may say I am “super and double blessed”.
Lastly, whatever happened to Holiness? 1 Pet 1:14-16 says, “As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do. For it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.
What do you think? Am I just being old school? Am I out of touch? Or is this just the ranting of stay-at-home-mom with nothing better to do with her time?
You tell me. Bring it on!
