Biblical Attire Truth
How Should a Christian Woman Dress Today
Welcome back lovely lady! Do you love to be called lovely? Can you be
lovely without the virtue of love? It's not a physical attribute, it
is spiritual. When you think of being lovely, I urge you not to think
of what you look like. What does a soul look like? It is not a
visible entity, but naturally, you probably think of it as a
Let's look at the virtue of loveliness from a different viewpoint. We
are human beings, flesh and blood, and we have this ... Shell ...
This heavy fleshly body that we drag around this Earth all of our
human lives, and because of gravity, it keeps us anchored to the
Christian Attire Tidbit of Truth ... Frankly, most women aren't happy
with their physical bodies. That's why they spend countless hours and
incredible amounts of money trying to make it look different than it
is, but in Truth, you are born again in the Spirit. Your spirit is
weightless, invisible, free!
Don't forget, God made you
in His image, and other human beings who don't understand the
essence of loveliness may have a difficult time grasping the Truth of
it, but since our spirits are stuck with a body while we visit this
planet, let's figure out how we can represent a godly loveliness in
our human form ... No matter what others (or you yourself) may think
of your encasement.
Even though your body is just the box that contains the gift of you, it still needs care. You're a reflection of the Lord and you represent Him ... After all, the Spirit of God lives inside of you!
1 Corinthians 3:16
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God
dwelleth in you?
1 Corinthians 6:20
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body,
and in your spirit, which are God's.
Biblical Attire Insight
How Should a Christian Woman Dress According to Bible
So what about clothing?
Christian Attire is a very delicate subject, and I hope you'll
reflect on your own wardrobe during this Step, but remember, it's not
what you wear, it's why you wear it. The next scripture selection is
a pretty powerful one, but I must point out to you that the Lord is
addressing the daughters of Zion ... In the Old Testament.
16 Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion
are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton
[wandering] eyes, walking and mincing [with small steps - tripping]
as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of
the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their
18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery
[beauty] of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their
cauls [lace], and their round tires [turbans] like the moon,
19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers
20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the
headbands [sashes], and the tablets [perfume boxes], and the earrings,
21 The rings, and nose jewels,
22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles
[cloaks], and the wimples [cloth worn over the head and around the
neck and chin], and the crisping pins [hair curling pins],
23 The glasses [mirrors], and the fine linen, and the
hoods, and the vails.
24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell
there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle [belt] a rent; and
instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a
girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.
25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the
26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being
desolate shall sit upon the ground.

Christian Attire Trivia Time ... If this Scripture was written today,
what would it include? Would make up be on the list? What about
fingernail polish? What about fake fingernails? Oh, there are many
items that you may want to rethink that are included in your wardrobe
today. Is it a good idea to give them to Goodwill or the Salvation
Army? Why, so someone else can buy them and wear them and be lured
into thinking that worldly trends are godly? Yes, it's a new day and
age ... It's a new era, different than the time when Lemmie's mom
told him about virtue in a woman, but what does your heart tell you?
It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, all you should care about
is what the Lord thinks. Do you believe that because mini skirts are
in style that the Lord thinks it's virtuous for His betrothed to show
her legs to the world? What about letting your bra straps show?
Bottom line ... Does your clothing say, "I'm betrothed to Jesus
1 Timothy 2:9-10
9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in
modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided
hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
10 But (which becometh women professing Godliness) with
Now, that Christian Attire Scripture is from the New Testament,
and reflects the laws within the New
Covenant so you decide what kind of attire is godly. You probably
have a lot of accessories that you may look at and conclude that you
had no motive other than modesty when you bought them, and of course,
the decision is up to you as to whether or not you're representing
Christ when you wear them. Nobody is saying you should put on a robe
and a cloak like they did in Biblical days, or trash everything you
own, but rather to look at your wardrobe and ask yourself what your
Jesus ... Your betrothed ... Your beloved ... Your protector ... Your
defender ... Would think of you wearing it ... In public.
Biblical Attire Questions
How Should a Christian Woman Dress Answer
If you have some pretty little cross earrings, do you think the Lord
would frown upon you wearing them? What about a skull and crossbones
necklace? Quite a difference, don't you think?
There are many different "styles" that evolve during a person's
lifetime, and some are conservative, some are not. You can represent
a whole spectrum of different things by the way you dress ...
Intelligence, rebellion, gang loyalty, ethnic or religious
traditions, modern trends or fads, sexy, formal, informal,
professional, casual ... Your clothes say something about you, so be
sure to use good judgment when you dress. Be honest with yourself.
God knows your heart.
An interesting thing to note is what Paul said:
1 Corinthians 9:19-22
19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made
myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain
the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I
might gain them that are under the law;
21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being
not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might
gain them that are without law.
22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the
weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save
Many people have misinterpreted this passage to mean, "When in Rome,
do as the Romans do," and many women may think, "When in the 21st
century, dress as a modern woman dresses." But that's not exactly
what Paul said. Wasn't Paul really saying that he went "undercover"
in order to save the souls of people? He didn't become them,
he became as them, in order to gain their confidence, and then
he was able to reach their hearts. Again, the issue isn't what you
do, it's your motivation for doing it.
Biblical Attire Warning
How Should a Christian Woman Dress Danger
Can you claim that the reason you choose your attire is because you
believe that a soul will be saved because of it?
If your motivation for wearing a certain thing in public is to
attract attention, or because it's sexy, how do you think the Lord
feels about it? If you're wearing something because you think it's
pretty, and you don't give a hoot what anybody else thinks, Great ...
As long as you firmly believe that it is something the Lord would
approve of. But any time you choose to wear something because of what
someone else may think, or if you disregard your conscience when you
know something isn't righteous, that's when your virtue concerning
the matter becomes questionable.
A woman's beauty comes from inside. God will not be tallying the
amount of ribbons you've won in beauty pageants, taking note of what
color your fingernails are painted or how shapely you've tweezed your
eyebrows. You are God's artwork. Can anyone take anything that God
created and make it better? ... Even you?
Christian Attire Tears and Fears ... Most women are very concerned
about what they wear. Indeed, more concerned about what their
appearance looks like to other people, than how their soul looks to
their Lord. If this describes you, I urge you to gain a new
perspective. Take a good hard look at what you wear, and ask yourself
what message you're giving to the Lord's sheep by what you're
wearing. Put your creativity to work. Start a new trend. Ignore
people who make rude comments if your apparel isn't revealing enough
or stylish enough for them. Jesus is smiling on you ... Isn't that
really your only concern?
One Christian Attire topic that is difficult to discuss is rape, but
there are a lot of people out in the world, and the numbers seem to
be growing rapidly, who have criminal minds, and sexual assault is
often the result. Now, you may think it far fetched, but sometimes a
bra strap showing, a low-cut blouse or one button too many unbuttoned
at the neckline, a skirt or shorts that are too short, slacks that
are too tight, a belly button showing ... Anything of this sort could
just be enough to set off a criminal's urges and many have confessed
that they stalk and victimize women who display these types of things.
Do you want to be responsible for something like that? Is this
ridiculous? Why do women wear things like that? Because it's sexy? If
so, shouldn't a woman's husband be the only person she wears
it in front of? What you and your spouse mutually agree on in private
is not looked upon as wrong, as long as it stays private and doesn't
touch another soul.
Righteous Biblical Attire
How Should a Christian Woman Dress to Go Out
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but
whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
But if you're wearing clothing out and about, which should be
reserved for intimate times with your spouse, you are wearing it for
anyone who sees you. It really doesn't matter what I think, ask your
betrothed what He thinks. How much of your body do you think He wants
the world to see? Christian Attire is a wiser choice.
In our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, His beauty is in the scars in
His wrists, His feet and His side, and the crown that He wore, was
not a crown of gold and jewels, but of thorns and it inflicted pain
and suffering ... For us. That, is beauty incomparable. Strive for
the kind of inner beauty that Jesus possessed and the Biblical attire
that virtuous women wore.
Isaiah, Chapter 53
1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of
the Lord revealed?
2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and
as a root out of a dry ground: He hath no form nor comeliness; and
when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows,
and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.
4 Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our
sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was
bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon
Him; and with His stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every
one to His own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us
7 He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened
not His mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a
sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who
shall declare His generation? for He was cut off out of the land of
the living: for the transgression of my people was He stricken.
9 And He made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich
in His death; because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit
in His mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; he hath put Him
to grief: when thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, He shall
see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the Lord
shall prosper in His hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be
satisfied: by His knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many;
for He shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great,
and He shall divide the spoil with the strong; because He hath poured
out His soul unto death: and He was numbered with the transgressors;
and He bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the
How Should a Christian Woman Dress Summary
Inner beauty is the only beauty the Lord knows.
Forgiveness is Your Best Dress
If you are a woman that has been deceived out of ignorance or the
ways of the world, or peer pressure, or any other reason, and you
piercings or tattoos, or if you have had surgery to enhance or
diminish any certain portion of your physical self, Don't let anyone
convince you that you're going to Hell because of it. You know, most
sins are invisible, but there are a lot of people that have altered
the godly image that God blessed them with, and those alterations can
be seen. Does that make them unforgivable? Heavens no! You know the
Truth. Is lust any less wrong than pierced ears, just because people
can't see lust? Absolutely not!
Christian Attire Reminder ... Jesus is all about forgiveness. It was
the fabric of His being. Clothe yourself in the fabric that Jesus
wore. And don't forget, when you are in need of forgiveness, after
you ask Jesus to forgive you for your sins, forgive yourself, never
forgetting the lessons that you learned from them. How should a
Christian woman dress? Dress as if your Lord, whom you are the bride
to be of, can see you. (Marriage Supper of the Lamb). Do not disappoint Him and make
Him ashamed of you. It would be a very bad trade.
His love for you is so magnificent!
Reflect on God's Grace,
every day of your life.
