Flesh and The Female Dresscode To Church

gh

It was a beautiful Sunday morning and I woke up with this feeling of joy and expectation  and couldn’t wait to get to church to feel God’s presence first hand.

Got into church just in time as ushers were busy ushering ‘late comers’ to their seats and two girlfriends were ushered to two vacant seats directly in front of me.

I didn’t think much of them because they sat down like the big sisters of Jesus and didn’t act like they understood that praise involved standing up and dancing.

During the course of the service, we were all asked to stand up and that’s when all hell broke loose.

You remember the story of Joseph and Potiphar’s wife in the Bible? How the devil knowing that Joseph was destined for greatness pushed Potiphar’s wife into a sinful desire to sleep with Joseph? (Read full story in Genesis 39).

That’s how I felt when one of the girls stood up and her see through gown clearly showed the lines of her rope underwear aka g-string.

OH MY GAWWWWD!!!!!

WHAT IS ALL THIS!!???????!!!!!

I looked to the ground and said within my breathe “Satan, nice try!!!”

Suffice to say that service was amazing but not without those uncomfortable and unholy quick stares I took at this ‘evil’ girl’s big g-string wearing buttocks. Sorry to add, I wasn’t the only one making quick glances at madam.

But why?

Why would a lady wear such to the house of God? Why would some girls wear overly cleavage showing tops to church? Why would a girl wear a dress worthy of going to the club with into church? Why would a lady with a killer figure wear a gown so tight that every bump on her body is outlined through the dress? Why would a lady encourage sexual attraction from the opposite sex with her dressing?

In another school of thought, is it okay for churches to disallow worshipers inappropriately dressed from entering the church?

But Jesus says in Matthew 11:28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest”. So what if these scantily dressed girls are showing their body because there is something lacking inside? What if they are burdened and in need of rest by coming to church? Do we turn them back just because they are not well dressed? What if the person decides not to accept Christ again over the fact that she was embarrassed because of her dressing?

What do we have to say about the churches themselves? Most don’t​ even agree on a unified dress code. In some churches, women compulsorily cover their hair while in others, they don’t. In other churches, women are banned from wearing trousers while in others, they are not. In some other churches, jeans aren’t allowed while in others jeans are. In some denominations, tight body hugging pencil skirts are allowed while in others, it’s a taboo.

The issue of dressing to church has been a century long debate in the body of Christ and the end is no where in sight.

In as much as the Bible says In John 7:24 “People judge the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart”. That doesn’t give ladies the audacity to dress shabbily into the house of God because God looks at the heart. What sort of heart do you have in dressing so temptingly to church?

In everything we do, we need to give ourselves brain. Eccesiastes 10:10b says “….but wisdom is profitable to direct”.

The same wisdom that directs one to dress appropriately for an interview with a prospective employer. The same wisdom that directs one to take a swimsuit/bikini to the swimming pool. That same wisdom should direct you to dress appropriately to the house of God because the Bible said vividly in 1 Timothy 2:9 “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in decent apparel, with modesty”.

This applies to both men and women alike, you should bring glory to God in the manner of your dressing. In church and outside church.

God might look at heart but if your dressing had eyes, would it confidently look at God?

Think about it.

Survey: 50 Ladies Build Their Men With $5 (See Results)

IMG_20150228_202159

The question that has troubled the gods, perplexed scientists, baffled men and flabbergasted women is “what do women want from men?”. To try and find out, I gave 50 ladies, $5 each to build their dream “man” given the following qualities with their respective price tags;

Handsome ($3)
Well dressed ($2)
Funny ($1)
Smart ($1)
Great sex ($2)
Faithful ($2)
Wealthy ($3)
Tall ($1)
Great body ($2)
Romantic ($2)

I’m sure, if given the chance, these ladies would buy all these qualities for their men but the catch was the fact that they had limited funds (just $5). After a few brain cracking money economizing maneuvers, they spent their $5 to their taste and below are the listed qualities in an order of most votes to least votes.

Faithful (30)
Smart (27)
Great sex (22)
Wealthy (18)
Funny (9)
Romantic (8)
Tall (8)
Well dressed (3)
Great body (1)
Handsome (1)

From single votes to permutations, let’s take a look at the top 10 double combination qualities that most women are looking for in their man.

1. Faithful and Smart (22)
2. Great sex and Smart (12)
3. Faithful and Funny (10)
4. Funny and Smart (10)
5. Faithful and Romantic (10)
6. Smart and Tall (8)
7. Faithful and Tall (7)
8. Faithful and Wealthy (7)
9. Great sex and Wealthy (6)
10. Wealthy and Romantic (4)

Observations from the results:
1. Faithfulness amassed the most votes with 30 which goes to show the importance women pay to their men keeping their manhood at home. Women love a man that can say “you are my one and only” and mean it. Faithfulness means the World to them.

2. Smart got a total of 27 votes from the 50 votes cast. Goes to show that women can’t stand a dull man. You gotta be smart enough to handle your biz, knowing what to do, when to do it and how to do it.

3. Shockingly, great sex got the third highest votes. Its shocking because women are known to be more passive than men when it comes to sex. This claim that “only men like sex” is a mirage. The votes clearly show that women love a man that can handle himself well between the sheets. *wink*

4. Another shocking observation is the fact that wealth garnered fewer votes than great sex. Goes against the popular belief that women like money and men like sex. More women would marry a financially stable genius in bed than a sex novice billionaire. Wow. Women are weird. Jeeeez. Lol

5. Looks are deceiving and this goes to the prove the point I have always know about women; its not about your looks. The looks department (well dressed, handsome, great body and tall) failed miserably with handsome and great body getting just one vote, well dressed managing three votes and tall ended the misery with just eight votes. No wonder ugly men marry beautiful women. Lol

6. I always had the opinion that girls love laughing and would kill for a funny man. I was also of the opinion that romantic men would out-pace a great-in-bed guy in a race to a woman’s heart. I was wrong on all two fronts. Not only did Romantic. get a meager 8 votes compared to Great Sex’s 22. Funny collected only 10 votes. Girls are not smiling anymore. Literally.

7. Talking about combinations, faithful and smart amassed the most combined votes with 22. When I asked some ladies why they chose “smart” over “wealth”, they chorused the same answer “because a smart man can’t be broke”.

8. To my utmost surprise, combinations with the lowest votes involved those including wealth. Great sex and wealthy combined got 8 votes while and romantic and wealthy combined got just 7 votes. Goes to prove a point, you don’t have to be swimming in big bucks to win a woman’s heart (although it helps..lol). Just have enough, do enough and you will be enough for her (see rhymes..lol).

 

End of part 1, expect part 2 titled “Survey: 50 Guys Build Their Women With $5” and you will be shocked what 50 men wanted in their women. Be expectant. Till next time, I am your host “Kurtis Smith (Mr. Trouble Maker). Stay blessed.
