MODESTY IN DRESS is the mindset you have when you realize that your nakedness is the private domain of yourself and your spouse. You have neither willingness nor desire to expose yourself in public to anyone or everyone who sees you.
You cover yourself in clothing because it is the decent and appropriate thing to do. Your necklines, sleeve lengths and hemlines all provide full coverage of body parts that other people simply do not need to see. You are not embarrassed or ashamed to be covered, but are in fact committed to contradict social styles that endlessly tease, titillate, and evoke lustful interests.
A MODEST PERSON sets their standard of dress higher than his/her peers, sadly aware that society at large has lost its sense of modesty and decency, and that conforming to their standards or styles is a shameful insult to one's self.
A MODEST MAN or WOMAN is resolutely determined not to march to the world's drum, but to dress according to centuries-old definitions of decorum and propriety. A modest man is not ashamed to wear full length trousers, a shirt with sleeves, a hairstyle that is well-trimmed and conservative in appearance, and even shoes that reflect dignity and sobriety. A modest women does not hesitate to wear a neckline that does not expose herself, sleeves that are longer than most, and a dress or skirt with a hemline that prevents her from ever being embarrassed or immodest.
When professing Christians start dressing immodestly, there is a spirit
of lust at work. Often, there are also spirits of fornication, adultery
and whoredoms at work. The true Christian must be modest and abstain
from all appearance of evil, in Jesus' name.
There is simply no justification for the wearing of immodest apparel among professing Christians. If you claim to be consecrated to truth, righteousness and holiness, do not contradict yourself by fanning the flames of the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes, and the pride of life by unnecessarily exposing any more of your body than is absolutely necessary. Let MODEST people rise up and show the world how things really ought to be, in Jesus' name.
