Don't be flashy to get attention. Wanting attention and striving to get it often stray people away from God spiritually so dress modest.

there are no rules of hair length but most traditionalist wear it long like they do their skirts.

Not ever pentecostal church follows this guideline but it is what I was taught from attending one for 22 years.

Earrings are ok or not ok? Necklaces? Panty hose always or are bare legs ok? Always must wear a slip even in the Summer? I need a rule book.

Look at what your asking and see if it is relevant to your relationship with God.

What a woman SHOULD wear will always be subjective as the bible nor jesus give us any specific details.

The idea behind jewelry is that it shows you have money/disposable income. Why would you want to show that off at church. Why would you want to show that off in non church? I wedding ring is fine but a gold necklace will only aspire to people coveting your wealth if you have any.

There is a passage in the bible that talks about these crazy girls that run around with sea shells and gold rings and a LOT of tacky stuff all over their body just so they can show them self off and intern sin because they are not focusing on God.

No rule book/ just your BIBLE!!! Just read your BIBLE and you will find your way.. This kind of talk is why people don't go to church!! Ankle length skirt is not going to get you where your going someday!!!

Go by the leading of God, If it feels wrong, don't do it. Alot of the attire in your traditional holiness churches is simply tradition. Personaly I feel you should be modest in everything you wear wether it be pants, shorts or skirts. You can wear a long skirt to your ankles and still be seductive looking...

Just be modest, not causing attention to your self. Just go by your own feelings, however I don't feel like women should wear pants to church, mostly for respect for the house of God.

God bless you on your quest for the answer you desire.

Whats on the outside doesnt matter much, your heart has to be right and God changes us from the inside out! but I dont think its right for christians to "show off" their bodies!
if u truely dont intend to bring a man to lust and he does, that is his problem not yours!!
all goes back to true desires and whats in your heart!

Not agreeing or disagreeing I was just wondering where did you go to church for those years?

I would love to have a copy of an old rule book for ladies of the Pentecostal church from 100 years ago if there was one just to see the rules. It would be interesting. Not that it is all necessary but it is interesting to see. You have to admit some of thpse ladies are just radient.

1. Wear something that hides recent trips to Golden Coral...

2. Ignore many versus of the Bible that does not fit into the group's acceptance. Such as eating at the Golden Coral or Asian Bistro.

3. Wear really cool jean skirts with KEDS..

This is what you expect from me..

I go to a pretty strict pent. church. . . but my belief is that what condems you its between you and God. Its just a clean way of living - its not the name above the door its how your right with God.

Some of these comments are hilarious. I have never been to a Holiness/Pentecostal church were strict rules were enforced. My Father is a Holiness Pastor, so I have been to my fair share of churches, Holiness, Baptist, and Pentecostal. I have seen are no difference in the dress of the memeber of the different denominations.
Wear what you want to wear. It's about your relationship with Our Lord, not what anyone else in the chruch thinks. Your relationship with God is the most important thing.
