    Deuteronomy 22:5; Chansa - you are quite right about God not changing. this scripture still holds for him today and so then to for us - if we are living for him; if not then this verse does not apply, but if not - then we aren't going to heaven; we are going to the 'other' place. to know that we are in his will we need to obey Acts 2:38. Read it prayerfully and you will see.

    No God does not change.
    But times and people and laws do. We are in the New Testament. Not the old. We still uphold the Ten Commandments. Jesus said that. We also render to the Government, taxes due to the Government and pay our tithes. Jesus said we shall uphold both God's law, and the law of the land. So if the law allows women and men to wear pants and God say don't laugh at them.
  • Chansa Chansa
    God will never change is the same yesterday today and tomorrow so if man can abide by the word of God of not wearing something pertaineth to a women why not the woman do the same? Let as change our attitude and take the word of God the way it is bcoz if we see a man wearing a skirt we say is mad but if it a woman wearing a trouser we say its ok does God changed?
  • Thomas Chambers
    I believe that Jesus Christ died for all sin, past, present and future Genesis through Revelations. If I interpret correctly, as described in Revelations, this is an chance once again for others to be saved. Our God is an loving God, an just God who is the I AM I AM! I like what I see thus far and hope to study Deuteronomy Chapter 22 more! Am I allowed to comment as the comments I see?
