Our culture is out-of-control. We have been so bombarded with sensuality that our collective conscience has become calloused and we have lost the ability to be ashamed. Statement of Fact

3 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed, nor did they know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; In the time of their punishment they shall be cast down, says the LORD. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed, nor did they know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; In the time of their punishment they shall be cast down, says the LORD. Jeremiah 8:12

4 Men easily lust (Matt. 5:28; Prov. 6:23- 28) Attire of a harlot (Prov. 7:10) Our Dress Can Affect Others Just because I am not ashamed to wear a particular outfit does not mean it is O.K. Some are not ashamed, but should be.

5 A Gentle Appeal To Think To Look at self Realize: I could be wrong. Some of my clothing could be immodest. Romans 12:1-2

6 1 Timothy 2:9-10 (NKJV) (9) In like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing; (10) but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works.

7 Modest, Proper Grk. kosmios W. E. Vine – orderly, well-arranged, decent Thayer – seemly, modest… used in 1 Tim. 3:2 as one of the qualifications of an elder. Kittel – describes one who disciplines himself and who may thus be regarded as genuinely moral and respectable If there is proper clothing, then there is definitely clothing that is improper.

8 Propriety, Shamefastness Grk. aidos W.E. Vine – a sense of shame, modesty... which is fast or rooted in the character Thayer – a sense of shame, modesty,... primarily in regard to others Many Christians have allowed the world to desensitize them to their sense of inward shame.

9 Moderation, Sobriety Grk. sophrosune W.E. Vine – sound judgment,...that habitual inner self-government, with its constant rein on all the passions and desires Kittel – restraint, moderation, discipline Such discretion should prevent a Christian from wearing what is designed to be sexy … revealing … eye-catching … hot … provocative

10 Godliness Grk. theosebeia W.E. Vine – Denotes the fear or reverence of God; a desire to please God Strong – Devoutness, i.e. piety Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. (Prov. 31:30)

11 To Dress Modestly Means… to dress in a proper and respectable manner… with a sense of shame if others were to be tempted because of your revealing clothing, or think of you as worldly because of your expensive or flashy attire.… using good judgment and self-control to insure that others do not face such temptations… so that what you wear will cause people to notice your fear of the Lord and commitment to godliness.
