Recently I have seen a lot of church going women upset that there are women out there that convey an image of being female as overtly sexual. They complain about Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat models that post images daily of being seductive and sexy. Throw in today’s female celebrities that are in a constant competition to wear as little as possible to the point many are wearing nothing at all, and you have some women in the church that blame the world for ruining our girls.
It is easy to try and blame these women for having a lifestyle that doesn’t seem to line up with what you believe but you have to keep in mind that these women have not stated they are trying to be role models for a girls that want to follow Jesus. There are many in fact that clearly state they are trying to be bad and do as much bad as they can. They are trying to fill their carnal desires in the darkest ways possible.
Instead of looking at these women let’s take a look at the women that actually say they are women following Jesus. What images are they putting out there for the women and girls that they minister to and spread the message of God? Now we know as soon as you broach this subject you can be prepared to catch a lot of hell on earth.
Although it is easy to talk about the evil cheating men, it is very difficult to talk about the conning ways of women. Now if you had a Christian mother or grandmother, you got a few lessons about women and what they do. Unlike men, women generally get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to being up to no good.
When I look at the women that I know that ministry to women, the overwhelming majority convey an image that is just as seductive as any Instagram model. They also all pretend like they have no clue why they are getting so much attention from the opposite sex.
No one would open a McDonald’s and then ask people that came in why they were ordering hamburgers so why are these women who profess Christ as their savior pretending like they don’t know why men are trying to talk to them.
We all know that some people are going to be turned on regardless of what you do. You could be wearing a tablecloth, cataract sunglasses, a head scarf and some man might find that attractive. We also know that if you wear a skintight handkerchief that sits on your thighs then a lot more men are going to try and get your attention.
So before you decide to go off on non-believers for leading your daughters astray you might want to say something to the minister in the skin tight low cut dress or the ripped skinny jeans with the cropped top. You might also want to have a word with the church ladies giving a baby shower to the unwed mother. You might also want to speak to the pastor that is signing off on this behavior.
People will tell you that ministering to Christian singles, young and old, is the hardest thing in the world to do. Because they are lonely they are constantly looking for someone to end their loneliness. They are willing to listen to anyone that can tell them how to end their loneliness. This includes people that tell them they have to dress cute and sexy like everyone else so they can get the attention of a good man. They never understand that a man’s attention that you catch like this is not that good.
Christians regardless of if they are a man or a woman should not be following the behavior of non-believers. If you actually read your Bible and actually believed it words then you would know that the Bible speaks on how you live when you serve the Father. Too many people are listening to people to follow Satan instead of those that follow Jesus.
You can dress however you like and you can tell people whatever you wish to about how they feel about that but God knows your heart and will judge you by that. The deeper question you might want to ask is why do you feel the need to be sexually attractive by anyone not your spouse.
