Nowadays, in stark contrast to the old-fashioned days of our great-great-great-great-great+ grandparents, we men (by obviously non-avoidable circumstantial default) have the semi-immodest sights of a lot of mopheaded, naked-armed, nude-legged, plus toes-and-ankles-exposed girls and older females imposed on us, especially on TV, in school, church, during political rallies, business meetings, athletic games, in restaurants and stores of all
types, in parks, on beaches, along the roadsides, and more . . . especially during warm weather days and evenings.
Within our contemporary closely-interdependent human family and society, what is misfortunate is massive misunderstandings and presumptions by waywardly wrong-headed females and their male patsies as to what motivates all of them to so misdress for various superstitious causes.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.
Proverbs 16:25 There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.
Song of Solomon 2:15 Catch us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom
Haggai 1:6 You have planted much, and harvested little; you eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; and he who earns wages earns wages to put them into a bag with holes.
First Corinthians 12:14 For the body does not consist of one member but of many.
15 If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body.
16 And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body.
17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell?
18 But as it is, God arranged the organs in the body, each one of them, as he chose.
19 If all were a single organ, where would the body be?
20 As it is, there are many parts, yet one body.
21 The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you," nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you."
22 On the contrary, the parts of the body which seem to be weaker are indispensable,
23 and those parts of the body which we think less honorable we invest with the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty,
24 which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving the greater honor to the inferior part,
25 that there may be no discord in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.
27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.
First Thessalonians 4:3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: for you to abstain from fornication,
4 each one of you to know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor
5 not in the passion of lust, even as the nations who do not know God,
6 not to go beyond and defraud his brother in this matter (because the Lord is the Avenger concerning all these, as we also have forewarned you and testified).
7 For God has not called us to uncleanness, but in sanctification.
8 Therefore he who despises does not despise man, but God, who also has given us His Holy Spirit.
James 4:3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.
My wife, in remarkably-laudable non-inclusive discrimination, likes to keep her food types separate on the plate whenever she eats. I inform her that it all goes into the same mouth, down the same throat, and into the same stomach - to be all mixed together into one yucky-looking mash (if she were to see that happen).
Still, she wants it separate, at least to start with.
I, and I guess that you also, would not like your "modestly-dressed" pop mixed with "immodestly-misdressed" piss, nor your "decently-attired" fettucini integrated with "indecently-misattired" feces....whether "for something different," "for change," "for variety," or whatever.
James 3:11 Does a spring pour forth from the same opening fresh water and brackish?
It has been said in Scripture that the fear of [pervert-styles-promoting] [humans] lays a snare:
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear or be in dread of them: for it is the LORD your God who goes with you; He will not fail you or reject you.
Deuteronomy 31:8 It is the LORD who goes before you; He will be with you, He will not fail you or reject you; do not fear or be dismayed.
Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man lays a snare, but he who trusts in the LORD is safe.
Isaiah 57:11 Whom did you dread and fear, so that you lied, and did not remember Me, did not give Me a thought? Have I not held My peace, even for a long time, and so you do not fear Me?
Jeremiah 1:17 But you, dress up your loins; get up, and say to them everything that I command you. Do not be dismayed by them, lest I dismay you before them.
Malachi 3:5 "Then I will draw near to you for judgment; I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the worker in his wages, the widow and the orphan, against those who thrust aside the traveler, and do not fear me," says the LORD of hosts.
Matthew 10:28 "And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell."
Luke 12:4 "I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do."
It is apparent that fear of criticism and of being shunned into isolationism and friendlessness is one significant cause why many women of today misdress with all sorts of licentuously-suggestive fashions and styles, particularly during late spring, summer, and early autumn.
Clearly, no one likes to be persecuted for modest and decent righteousness sake, nor be ostracized as a crusading Christian rebel by making a properly-attired silent statement of opposition against satanic styles (which demented fashions are required by both ignorantly and deliberately godless worldly perverts and pervertesses who neither read the modesty directives in the Bible, nor want to read them, nor want them to be read to them by anyone)....by always being dressed perfectly decently, consistently wearing chignon (i.e. hairbun) or back-of-head single ponytail, long-sleeves blouses, full-length pants, and socks with shoes - and thus ["controversially"] going against the luridly-exhibitionist flow.
So, in view of the relentless and wearisome parade and outworn annual stuck-in-a-rut liturgical ritualism of confused and demonically-indoctrinated human females sitting, walking, jogging, biking, or whatever within the inevitable non-soliciting view of visually-abused males married or not to the ones stupidly or defiantly flaunting aforementioned sensuous parts of their denuded bodies, let's take it a step further in an imaginary-illustration scenario.
Imagine that you or I walked into a store or down an aisle at the mall and encountered (thus confronted) by a fairly-attractive young mopheaded women (with loose long hair below mouth-level) and/or wearing a sleeveless dress or shirt and/or legs-baring shortened skirt or shorts, and flipflop sandals without socks on . . . who was trying to sell you or I something.
Let's say that you or I told her that instead of buying what she was trying to sell us, you or I wanted to give her a quick hug and kiss on her cheek.
Proverbs 7:6 For at the window of my house I have looked out through my lattice,
7 and I have seen among the simple, I have perceived among the youths, a young man without sense,
8 passing along the street near her corner, taking the road to her house
9 in the twilight, in the evening, at the time of night and darkness.
10 And wow, a woman meets him, [mis]dressed as a harlot, wily of heart.
11 She is loud and wayward, her feet do not stay at home;
Pertaining to verse 11 above:
Song of Solomon 2:14 Oh my dove, in the [private] clefts of the rock, in the [secluded] covert of the cliff, let me see your face [not that of other non-asked-for female faces], let me hear your voice [not that of other non-asked-for female voices on TV or radio or wherever], for your voice is sweet, and your face is attractive.
Titus 2:4 ...and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,
Titus 2:5 to be sensible, chaste, domestic, kind, and submissive to their husbands, that the word of God may not be discredited. ]
12 now in the street, now in the market, and at every corner she lies in wait.
13 She seizes him and kisses him, and with impudent face she says to him:
14 "I had to offer sacrifices, and today I have paid my vows;
15 so now I have come out to meet you, to seek you eagerly, and I have found you.
16 I have decked my couch with coverings, colored spreads of Egyptian linen;
17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love [instead: lust!] till morning; let us delight ourselves with love.
19 For my husband is not at home; he has gone on a long journey;
20 he took a bag of money with him; at full moon he will come home."
21 With much seductive speech she persuades him; with her smooth talk she compels him.
22 All at once he follows her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a stag is caught fast
23 till an arrow pierces its entrails; as a bird rushes into a snare; he does not know that it will cost him his life.
24 And now, sons, listen to me, and be attentive to the words of my mouth.
25 Let not your heart turn aside to her ways, do not stray into her paths;
26 for many a victim has she laid low; yes, all her slain are a mighty host.
27 Her house is the way to Sheol, going down to the chambers of death.
What would her response be? Would she agree to let you or I do that?
Would it be:
Song of Solomon 1:2 Oh that you would kiss me with the kisses of your mouth! For your love is better than wine . . .
Song of Solomon 8:1 Oh that you were like a brother to me, that nursed at my mother's breast! If I met you outside, I would kiss you, and none would despise me.
What would other people think of it who saw us do such? Would her boyfriend, husband, or father approve if they saw it? Would she start to get somewhat erotically "turned on" by the brief affectionate contact with a stranger (in this case being you or me)?
Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching a light, and the reproofs of discipline are the way of life,
24 to preserve you from the evil woman, from the smooth tongue of the adventuress.
25 Do not desire her beauty in your heart, and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes;
26 for a harlot may be hired for a loaf of bread [usually more costly nowadays!], but an adulteress stalks a man's very life.
27 Can a man carry fire in his bosom and his clothes not be burned?
28 Or can one walk upon hot coals and his feet not be scorched?
29 So is he who goes in to his neighbor's wife [generally, masseuse harlots have been divorced]; none who touches her will go unpunished.
30 Do not men despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his appetite when he is hungry?
31 And if he is caught, he will pay sevenfold; he will give all the goods of his house. [or at least be charged with a $700 misdemeanor]
32 He who commits adultery has no sense; he who does it destroys himself.
33 Wounds and dishonor will he get, and his disgrace will not be wiped away.
34 For jealousy makes a man furious, and he will not spare when he takes revenge.
35 He will accept no compensation, nor be appeased though you multiply gifts.
Suppose even further that you (as a man) or I were invited into a closed-audience gymnasium to view a lineup of completely-naked young women [bare from the tops of their heads to the soles of their feet] surrounding you or me in the middle.
Isaiah 3:16 The LORD said: Because the daughters of Zion are haughty and walk with outstretched necks, glancing wantonly with their eyes, mincing along as they go, tinkling with their feet;
Isaiah 3:17 the Lord will smite with a scab the heads of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will lay bare their secret parts.
Ezekiel 16:37 Therefore, hey, I will gather all your lovers, with whom you took pleasure, all those you loved and all those you loathed; I will gather them against you from every side, and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness.
Hosea 2:1 Say to your brother, "My people," and to your sister, "She has obtained pity"
Hosea 2:2 "Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not my wife, and I am not her husband: that she put away her harlotry from her face, and her adultery from between her breasts;
Hosea 2:3 ...lest I strip her naked and make her as in the day she was born, and make her like a wilderness, and set her like a parched land, and slay her with thirst.
Which one of the many would you or I choose to take by the hand and into the reserved bedroom with us? On what basis would you or I choose them? Seeing that they were not wearing a gold wedding band on the fourth finger of their left hand? Selecting a sample by their skin color or nationality? Their weight and/or their height? Their eye and/or hair color? If they smiled instead of frowned? Looked attentive and alert instead of bored? Appeared submissively eager and expectatant with humble longing in their eyes, instead of rebellious or maliciously spiteful with sexist chauvenism? If they were wearing a Christian-cross necklace or Star of David? If they were not marked with piercings or tattoos on various places on their bodies?
Of course, the situation is hypothetical, being that which young women would be willing to voluntarily participate in such a lineup for you or me? What would be their reasons for doing so? Perhaps some would dare to try it for the sake of fulfilling a desire to have sex and get pregnant by obtaining a potential husband?
Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
Genesis 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth."
Genesis 9:7 "And you, be fruitful and multiply, bring forth abundantly on the earth and multiply in it."
First Timothy 2:8 Therefore, I desire the men to pray in every place, lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting.
9 So also the women to adorn themselves in proper clothing, with modesty and sensibility, not with plaiting, or gold, or pearls, or expensive garments,
10 but what becomes women professing fear of God, through good works.
11 Let a woman learn in silence, in all subjection.
12 And I do not allow a woman to teach nor to exercise authority over a man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived has come to be in transgression;
15 but she will be saved by childbearing, if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with sobriety.
First Timothy 5:14 Therefore I want younger women [Gr. ne(o)teras - not ch(e)ras, which is the Greek word for widows] to marry, bear children, guide the house, giving the adversary no cause to reproach.
First Timothy 515 For some have already turned aside after Satan.
What would be the reaction of those not selected? What would be the reaction of the police, employers, inlaws, and the media?
Intriguing it is that the condition of "marriage" is one within which it is not merely possible to have sex with impunity in the estimation of others, but is expected and even Scripturally required (if and as much as can be done).
In other words, the mutually-consentual agreement to be the spouse of someone else is a universal license to strip oneself and/or one's mate to then perform (rather than "commit") all types of sexual-connection intercourse at all stages and intensities.
One must not underestimate the vital and necessary recourse for sexual gratification and fulfilment usually done copiously in secret seclusion during marriage among married couples in private with each other, without shame and in full favor from God the Creator and the sane among humanity:
Genesis 2:25 And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.
[ Damnable heresy from Satan's own pseudo-"scholars" pollutes the realm of acceptable Bible translation found within the NIV, TEV, CEV, BBE, WEY, NLT, NCV, ESV, and other accursed modern aberrations against First Corinthians 7:1...mis-rendering the passage as: "It is good for a man to not marry" or: "be celibate," or the here-vaguely-overbroad: "not have sexual relations" or some obnoxious equivalent! ]
Erotic innovations, adequate duration, and completeness without "male-enhancement" additives nor apprehensive interruption is the blessed norm instead of the lamentable exception for those generally younger people united in matrimony - whether directly to a single partner or prudently apportioned to multiples as with a male sheik having his own female harem.
Leviticus 21:7 They shall not marry a harlot or a woman who has been defiled; neither shall they marry a woman divorced from her husband; for the priest is holy to his God.
Leviticus 21:14 A widow, or one divorced, or a woman who has been defiled, or a harlot, these he shall not marry; but he shall take to wife a virgin of his own people
Proverbs 5:18 Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth.
Proverbs 5:19 Like the loving deer and pleasant doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times, and be ravished always with her love.
Ecclesiastes 2:8 I also gathered for myself silver and gold and the treasure of kings and provinces; I got singers, both men and women, and many concubines, man's delight.
Song of Solomon 2:16 My beloved is mine and I am his, he pastures his flock among the lilies.
Song of Solomon 6:3 I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine; he pastures his flock among the lilies.
Song of Solomon 7:5 Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your [dangling-threads-like] flowing locks [i.e. exotic mopheadedness] are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses.
Song of Solomon 7:8 I say, I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its branches. Oh, may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples . . .
First Corinthians 7:1 Now concerning the matters about which you wrote. It is well for a man to not touch [Gr. aπτεσθαι, or in English lettering: aptesthai - according to assistance from http://biblos.com/1_corinthians/7-1.htm] woman.
2 But because of the temptation to immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
3 The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.
4 For the wife does not rule over her own body, but the husband does; likewise the husband does not rule over his own body, but the wife does.
5 Do not refuse one another except perhaps by agreement for a season, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, lest Satan tempt you through lack of self-control.
First Timothy 3:2 Now a bishop must be above reproach, the husband [Gr. aνδρα, or andra in English lettering) of one [Gr. μιaς, or mias in English lettering] wife [Gr. γυναικoς, or gynaikos in English lettering] - temperate, sensible, dignified, hospitable, an apt teacher
First Timothy 3:12 Let deacons be the husband of one wife, and let them manage their children and their households well
Genesis 38:14 [Tamar] put off her widow's garments, and put on a [harlot's] veil, wrapping herself up, and sat at the entrance to Enaim, which is on the road to Timnah; for she saw that Shelah was grown up, and she had not been given to him in marriage.
Numbers 5:18 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and unbind the hair of the woman's head, and place in her hands the cereal offering of remembrance, which is the cereal offering of jealousy. And in his hand the priest shall have the water of bitterness that brings the curse.
יח וְהֶעֱמִיד הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הָאִשָּׁה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, וּפָרַע אֶת-רֹאשׁ הָאִשָּׁה, וְנָתַן עַל-כַּפֶּיהָ אֵת מִנְחַת הַזִּכָּרוֹן מִנְחַת קְנָאֹת הִוא; וּבְיַד הַכֹּהֵן יִהְיוּ, מֵי הַמָּרִים הַמְאָרְרִים. 18 [ Numbers 5:18 = And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and let the hair of the woman's head go loose, and put the meal-offering of memorial in her hands, which is the meal-offering of jealousy; and the priest shall have in his hand the water of bitterness that causeth the curse. ] (according to http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0405.htm)
Ezekiel 16:25 You have built your high place at the head of every way, and have made your beauty to be despised, and have parted your feet to everyone who passed by, and have multiplied your fornications.
Ezekiel 16:32 Adulterous wife, who receives strangers instead of her husband!
Ezekiel 23:21 Thus you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when the Egyptians pressed your breasts because of your young nipples."
Romans 7:3 Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she belongs to another man while her husband is alive.....
First Corinthians 11:13 Judge for yourselves; is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
14 Does not nature itself teach you that for a man to wear long hair is degrading to him,
15 but if a woman has long hair, it is her [sensuously-enticing] pride? For her hair is given to her for a covering [so she is not hideously bald].
16 If any one is inclined to be contentious, we recognize no such practice, nor do the churches of God.
Without marriage, sexual connection is rightfully considered sinful fornication in various criminal degrees of taking illegal liberties and committing indecent conduct, or adultery - and when done among same-gender couples is considered noxiously-abhorrent homosexual sodomy.
Responsible sexuality is everyone's duty, and that duty involves selecting modest clothing in the morning when one dresses before leaving the house or apartment . . .without the option of being seductively and/or selfishly mindless as to the effect one's body-parts exposure will have on whoever of the not-married-to-themselves opposite gender they will encounter during the day in general public view.
Ephesians 5:3 But let not fornication, and all uncleanness, or greediness, be suggested [or named] among you, as is fitting for saints;
4 also filthiness, and foolish talking, or [silly] joking, as things not becoming, but rather thanksgiving.
5 For be knowing this, that every fornicator, or unclean one, or covetous one, who is an idolater, has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for through these the wrath of God comes on the sons of disobedience.
7 Then do not be partners with them;
8 for you then were darkness, but now light in the Lord; walk as children of light.
9 For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth,
10 proving what is pleasing to the Lord.
11 And have no fellowship with the fruitless works of darkness, but rather even reprove them.
12 For it is shameful even to speak of the things being done by them in secret.
13 But all things being exposed by the light are clearly revealed, for everything having been revealed is light.
14 Because of this, He says, "Get up, sleeping ones and stand up out of the dead ones, and Christ will shine on you."
15 Then watch how carefully you walk, not as unwise, but as wise ones,
16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 For this reason, do not be foolish, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Concordantly, a whole host of sexually-related sociological and financial problems can be avoided by honestly and thoughtfully donning oneself in whatever decent costume one intends to appear before exiting their residence, and instead prepare (with marriage-minded abstinence) in every way during the teens to find and acquire a suitable spouse -- such problems bypassed as being deemed a partially-pornographic sex object causing needless and senseless overly-erotic competition to attract male attention in dishonorable and even harassively-despicable ways, inciting porn modeling, production, along with expensive and overall-dissatisfying masseuse and escort prostitution, desertion and frigidity, traffic accidents and assembly-line mistakes caused by lurid diversionary sights, non-wanted pregnancies, abortion homicide, jealousies resulting in gossip, vandalism, assault and even murder, venereal diseases, other disabilities, diseases, and congenital handicaps rather closely related to sexual deviancies, etc.
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
First Peter 1:14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance...
