WHAT IS WRONG ABOUT WOMEN PUTTING ON TROUSER? READ AND COMMENT

 

However, there may be a number of ways in which clothing can send inappropriate sexual messages and both women and men should avoid doing so. Also, Christian teaching includes the belief that God made men and women complteaching to each other – different in certain physical and psychological ways that should be respected and honoured.
The apostle Paul gives his opinion on a similar issue in his ancient cultural world when he writes: does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? (1 Corinthians 11:14-15).
However, the Bible also tells us that “the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7). God is much more interested in what is going on in our hearts, than He is about what we wear. So, in general, I would suggest that ‘modesty’ is the key word in our clothing and that that we all should seek God’s wisdom and use our common sense.

WOMEN AND TROUSER

INTRODUCTION:

What’s wrong about women putting on trouser?
The reason is sometimes said that women should not wear trousers is that we read “a woman shall not wear a man’s Garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God”{Deuteronomy 22:5}. No reason is provided for this rule, but it occurs within a series of rules about public behavior and respect for others, so it is probably a rule against breaking down accepted sexual barriers to the detriment of social attitudes about purity and respect between men and women. This is certainly a biblical principle.


In the New Testament, Paul writes that. Women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works.{1 timothy 2:9-10}.
The biblical principle is that, in whatever culture we may live, we should observe high standards of public decency and especially keep our dress standards free from any overt and tempting sexual message. There was a time in the early decades of the last century when western women wore crudely adapted men’s trousers as a sign of cultural and moral rebellion.

Now that trouser are designed both for men and women and are not sexual symbols in that previous way, most Christians would regard them as a suitable for women.

Many people that know me today find it hard to picture me as a rapper.

But yeah, I was a rapper and got on stage to rap in front of crowds and my last live show was in my 2nd year in the university at the Miss UNN pageant. It was my first time rapping on stage in UNN and it was my last too.

But hey, right before then, I used to be a singer way back in secondary school (Science College). I had a boy band and we were the FLAME in our school…Oh well, we were actually known as FLAME (a.k.a Outlawz for Christ).

Okay, go ahead…laugh.

Yup. I and my friends came together and we formed that group. Almost every Sunday, we would get on stage in our school’s chapel and sing different songs, including Acapellas. We were tired of having boring chapel services and thought of how to spice things up so we and other students don’t die of boredom.

Every time we got on stage, the girls/guys used to be thrilled. You could literarily see people run out from the bush and other places they hid to ‘dodge’ evening chapel and into the hall whenever we got on stage and shouts rent the air.

People looked forward to coming to the chapel expecting us to sing. The once ‘so boring’ evening chapel became a ‘goer’ for students because we made it lit anytime we got on stage and because we never announced if we’d be on stage at any service, students showed up almost every other Sunday hoping we would get on stage.

Right as we shone on, a group of junior students came together and tried to do what we used to do and were bent on doing it ‘better’ than us. My group saw it as competition but I told them I was glad we had inspired others to join in making the Sunday evenings lit and that they’d help us keep the chapel charged when we weren’t performing.

We gave them the spot and they were the ones on stage for a while. Then, on the last Sunday before our graduation, they had planned for it to be their biggest performance but they had issues during their performance because some were trying too hard to outshine others and they ended up making a mess out of the whole thing.

I looked at my guys and told them we had to go up there. We nodded…we grouped up outside…sent word to the chapel prefect and he excitedly ran and announced that FLAME would be on stage that evening. The chapel went up in flame (pun intended) as students screamed in excitement.

We got on stage, sang and then switched to rap and yes, the place burned down (Figuratively). Screams everywhere. The whole place was something else and people actually ran and followed us when we left the stage.

After this, the younger guys met me and one of them that was close to me confessed that they had grouped up to replace us. That they had wanted to outshine us and make us irrelevant because most of his class mates felt we were ‘doing’ too much.

You see, that is the problem right there. I and my group got on stage to drive away boredom from school and make people look forward to evening chapel but these young guys actually grouped just to drive us off stage and become the ‘superstars’.

This is the conflict amongst and between generations today. Most people in the younger generation usually try to replace their peers and even those older in the profession without understanding that the original purpose of doing what is done is to better society, not to be seen as the ‘best superstars that ever liveth’.

Many of them expend their energy trying to ‘overtake’ those they should be meeting up to be mentored by or shown the light as well as those they should be ‘collaborating with’ to do better. Many run with slogans like ‘takeover’ and the rest and even pray in church asking for grace to take over and outshine others.

They miss it.

We are called to a noble cause. Whatever we do here on earth should be to better life here. Life is not a rappers’ beef/dis track. Life is more like a duet or group song with each person on it aiming to thrill the listener, not compete with the others.

We miss it when we see others as competition and expend our energy and existence on trying to outshine them or take their spot. That mentality is so much a goner.

Reach out and work with people in your field of pursuit or endeavor. We are not at war. We are all in this life together. Young people, work with each other and even an older colleague. Older people, bring the younger guys in on what you do.


?Philip Asuquotes with some of his protege(s) at PAQ SESSION

Most of the professions you see today were actually started by noble men for a noble cause that would help humanity. Many young people come up and without knowing the right reins about their profession, they fly into practice with a vow to beat the others and be the best…as if that was the reason that profession was ever set up.
Let the baton of nobility be passed from generation to generation.

Let us actually know and do what we are here to do, without the faulty mentality of ‘taking over’ or outshining the other. Life is about succession. Let the noble teach the newbies and let them in turn show their peers the noble way to life on earth.

AVOIDING A BAD MARRIAGE

 

After salvation, the most important choice you will
need to make is who to marry. This choice is so
important that if you miss it, you will suffer for
long, if you get it right then you will enjoy forever.
A bad marriage can affect every other area of your
life.

This subject is so important, so many married
people are hoping to be single again so as to
make the right choice. If you are single please
don’t just be in a hurry to get married, you have
the best opportunity to prepare for it.

For two people to come together to live in peace
and harmony, they must agree spiritually, mentally
and physically.

Just like an elephant cannot marry
an ant so also a believer cannot marry an
unbeliever. If an elephant marries an ant how
would they live, if a goat marries a fish where
would they meet? You must look for a Godly man
or a Godly woman to marry, nothing can beat this.
The devil’s primary target is the family. He knows
that everyone belongs to a family and if he can
make two wrong people meet then he has
succeeded affecting the community and nations
negatively.

Ignore your age and the pressure for a
moment, the pressure in a wrong marriage is far
worse. God has somebody for you but you must
set your priorities right. What do you need in a
woman? What do you need in a man?
Marriage is not about what you want, it is about
who you need, that will make you better while you
make him better. It is about destiny.

That is why
you must know your purpose before you get
married. Genesis 2:18.
You must pray before you choose. God knows the
best person for you, it is only wise to seek His will.

It is very easy to know God’s will when sex is not
involved. The moment sex is involved and you
want to know His will then He will blank you out.
Why? Because you have broken His first Law of NO
SEX before marriage.
If you have had sex in the past then you need to
repent totally and stay away from each other for
sometime then you can seek the face of God.
Your marriage will not be hell on earth. Your
marriage will be honorable in the name of Jesus
Christ.

Don’t marry for sex, don’t marry because you are
of age, don’t marry because you are getting old,
don’t marry because you are lonely, don’t marry
because you need someone to support you
financially, don’t marry because you mistakenly got
pregnant, don’t marry because you don’t want to
lose the person, don’t marry because of family
pressures, don’t marry because you like the idea of
marriage and admire every wedding gown you see,
don’t marry because all your friends are getting
married.
But get married because you want to fulfill destiny.

Get married because you want to be a help mate.
As a man, get married because you want to fulfill
your purpose. God will help you in choosing, please
let His will be done. Amen!

This question is common amongst ladies nowadays. Do you really think as a woman wearing of trouser is a sin? Considering the fact that this bible verse says

Deut. 22:5 – “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”

Although there was no mention of trousers or skirts but the used word on that verse PERTAINETH is pointing out so many things.

Some christian homes go as far as burning their trouser saying that it’s a sin

1cor 6-20 “For God bought you with a high price.so you must honor God with your Body. #NLT

Is it that if ladies/girls/women wears trousers they Don’t honor God?

Will wearing of trousers take a lady to Hell?
