Is unfortunate that many girls will sacrifice heaven to wearing of pants and make-ups. Romans 12:1 clearly shows thats the worship of God should reflect in our outward appearance but many youths including our parents and others kicks against it in order to please the flesh. Hell is a place of everlasting torment, i'm pleading with one and all to flee from going to hell. The key to the gate of heaven is HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS which without it, no one will enter. May God help us. Amen
To many parents, children pay attention to the worldly crowd and the Miley Cyrus' of the world. The parents bear much of the blame for this kind of thing, then they act all shocked and surprised that little Sarra or little Johnny has gotten pregnant before they could even get out of their teen years, is some cases even before they become teens.

They let children dress like prostitutes/dope fiends did just a few short years ago and now they wonder what has happened. All the rebellious is put squarely in the parents lap for a like of discipline in almost every case. True some children have always been rebellious, but the percentage now is far beyond what it was just a few years ago. This among other things makes me strongly believe we are in what the bible describes as the last days.

2 Timothy 3
New International Version (NIV)
3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Godó 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.

the bible tells we are not to adorn oursevles, man or woman. We are also not to cross the gender lines according to scripture. My OPINION is that if a person is dressing in a manner to inspire the lust of others then its wrong, if the are dressing in a manner to keep warm or accomidate there job i dont think God sees this as sin. Note. I said my opinion.

It does matter to God what we look like. A Christian should look different than the people out in the world. The Bible says a women should not put on garments that pertain to a man. And the only woman in the Bible that wore makeup was Jezebel and she was fed to the dogs.

The topic of pants and dresses is very simple. If we plainly ask ourselves - What is a man's attire today? Pants, and what is women's attire? dress. We can not decive ourselves of what is obvious. Why do we freak out when men wear dresses or skirts????? Feminine?????? We are very prideful and lustful today. Look at Tv, movies you can't deny that all those movies are full of women / men doing drugs, killing, sex and women in clothing that make men or women create thoughts in their minds. Don't be fulled by hollywood, and the ruler of this world. Ladies, don't deny that you put on make-up or clothes to show your body to please yourself because you don't wear it at home like you do when you go out to find a "man"!
something to think about....
Honestly there are women pants. What if you live somewhere very cold, would it be ok to wear pants? I mean if a girl puts her boyfriend's pants on that is Wrong because it is a man's garment. Can someone please explain to me why pants on a lady would even be considering wrong unless she is wearing boys pants. As for makeup, someone please help me with this. Would it be ok to wear makeup if you are not trying to attract anyone. Honestly, I think there are some girls that feel uncomfortable around people without makeup on.

Ok I think make up should be trashed but what is the problem with wearing pants as long as they are lady pants? If a guy decided to wear a pretty pink pair of lady pants with flowers on the HUGE PROBLEM.

We're save by grace and not by works but because we're saved we do good God is more pleased in our action then what we wear. We can wear dresses all the time and no makeup at all but your mind and heart can be carrupt with lies and slandering and gusiping and cheating and all kinds of sins just like the Pharisees But and again there's this other women dressed in pants and a little makeup and her heart is right with God where she's pleasing God more in her action to love serve God with all her heart and soul and mind. So you tell me which of this two women's would God be more pleased with the one wearing dresses and no make up at all or the one that has pants on and makeup Just like 1 Sam, 16:7 the Lord looks at the heart so as long you do everything with a good honest and motive and clean heart that's all it counts. Amen thank you.

So let's focuse in what's more important in our walk with Christ and help each other run the race not by worrying about whose wearing what we will be judge individual anyways lets just Love and respected and get to the end of the race because it's not so much to win the race but to get to the end of the race and together everything is possible so love you guys may the Lord Bless y'all and see y'all in heaven.

Women shouldnt wear any pants! Thats the mans job to wear those.

I took over a job that a woman (wearing pants) was doing..and I'm still fixing problems a year later!
The whole city had tall grass and RV's parked outside and she was letting them get away with it.

These crazy old retirees knew they could boss her around because she was a woman but I dont put up with it. I'm a man and Ill give their old asses a ticket if they mess with me.
