Deuteronomy Chapter 22
2 And if thy brother be not nigh unto thee, or if thou know him not, then thou shalt bring it unto thine own house, and it shall be with thee until thy brother seek after it, and thou shalt restore it to him again.
3 In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and so shalt thou do with his raiment; and with all lost thing of thy brother's, which he hath lost, and thou hast found, shalt thou do likewise: thou mayest not hide thyself.
6 If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way in any tree, or on the ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam with the young:
17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.
19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.
21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.
24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

Deuteronomy Chapter 22 Bible commentary...
Of humanity towards brethren. (1-4) Various precepts. (5-12) Against impurity. (13-30)1-4 If we duly regard the golden rule of "doing to others as we would they should do unto us," many particular precepts might be omitted. We can have no property in any thing that we find. Religion teaches us to be neighbourly, and to be ready to do all good offices to all men. We know not how soon we may have occasion for help.
5-12 God's providence extends itself to the smallest affairs, and his precepts do so, that even in them we may be in the fear of the Lord, as we are under his eye and care. Yet the tendency of these laws, which seem little, is such, that being found among the things of God's law, they are to be accounted great things. If we would prove ourselves to be God's people, we must have respect to his will and to his glory, and not to the vain fashions of the world. Even in putting on our garments, as in eating or in drinking, all must be done with a serious regard to preserve our own and others' purity in heart and actions. Our eye should be single, our heart simple, and our behaviour all of a piece.
13-30 These and the like regulations might be needful then, and yet it is not necessary that we should curiously examine respecting them. The laws relate to the seventh commandment, laying a restraint upon fleshly lusts which war against the soul.
Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

On 22 and 5 its clear he says anything that pertains etc.thsts what he means . under garments and outer garments. But the pastors let or should I say allow the women to wear what they want to gain members. Some are so worldly its a shame with long splits showing all, leggings tight , shitrs low cut tight blue jeans, low cut blouse showing the. chest , showing their under garments thru the clothes. Etc. How are you a light for the world and you look ,talk, act , and dress the same. And we know what pertsin To a women in our culture we play dumb cause we want to look like a sinner a claim holiness. Also if that the case why we call a man a cross dresser when he wears skirt, dresses wigs etc. And women butches that wear boxers combat boots pants sagging etc. Its does not mean being a homosexual we got direct laws for that in the old and new testament . The bible is just being fulfilled . So far as freedom in Christ your free from sin not to do or dress as you want to, we did what we wanted to in sin yet we was bound. Many shall depart. From the faith giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

Real christians that have been truly converted, I dont have an opinion but I do have the word of God and it speaks for itself. Romans 6:4, 8:5-11, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20. Being a women before I was converted was disastrous because all I could see was women looking like women on tv and were trying to be so sensual to get attention from men in order to feel loved mothers, business women, wives, church women, even grandmothers looking no different from the unsaved including myself seeming as if there was no hope for me, young ladies that were my age, even little girls. People quick to yell perverted men raping women and messing with children thats why need to cover up not saying it still cant happen if we are but what are we putting out there. When Jesus Saved and Delivered me I was and still am sensitive to sin against a Mighty and Holy Holy Holy Lord that made me and each and everyone of us, we are bought with a price and God commands us not ask us what to do so if you really desire to abide by God 's word and to do His will he will enable you without a doubt and others and don 't and that are not converted God sees your sin and he hates it and Judgement is upon you so Repent and call upon the name of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and may the Lord God has mercy upon you.
