Discussion for Deuteronomy 22

    April - I read my post about pants again; I'd forgotten it. I personally take Deut. 22:5 for myself. I do not judge other women. The reason I wear only midi to maxi skirts is - I want to do His will. What other women do is between them and Jesus. I was a backslider for34 yrs. and He kept me. He could have let me go at any time. I'll do anything He asks of me, Matt. 22:37

    Wayne,You advised April not to ask questions of humans.Yet, you answer many questions here.The task is to "test all spirits".The only way to test a spirit is using the knowledge of God's word.Asking a question of someone is not wrong, but after they answer, test it against his word. The Holy Spirit teaches all things.If you are grounded in the word, the truth will set you free. Christ is Truth.

    April: Wearing pants is ok, just not painted on. The issue is about one dressing to look like a male or female. I thought maybe we should all wear robes,but whatever you wear someone will complain. I see a lot of women wear way to short or sheer (do they still make slips), clothing. A couple of girls,well the pants looked like pajamas. The Lord looks at your Heart.

    April, take all questions to Jesus and He will answer them. Don't rely on humans for not all adhere to the scriptures.

    I have a question,I see IRENE 123 posted about wearing pants,and it got me thinking,would it be considered a I guess GUY clothing?,I mean when I was younger I was a tom boy,lol,eww to dresses,but now I like to wear long skirts and long dresses,I am more conservative,I tried wearing skinny miny but,it wasn't very becoming,all due to what was hip lol,but as I got older I like to wear jeans.

    Women like their pants. When they first became more popular in the late 60's it took just a VERY FEW yrs., less than 5, before ALL women, young and seniors, were wearing them. And many mother's didn't even bother buying dresses anymore for their daus. But, we are not to openly judge anyone for anything; their lives are between them and God. God IS love and we are to ONLY show His love.
