    God has provided Bible principles to help set his people apart. Verse 5 brings out Jehovah God's viewpoint of proper dress and grooming for a man and woman.
  • Bruce
    Dan: If a man dresses to look like a Female or a Female dresses to look like a man,that is abomination. It's not to be done even as a joke. This World is going Dark quickly. When I was in school, I knew what bathroom to use. Today, after countless hours and millions of dollars, they still don't know. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own Hearts: Romans 1:24

    The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, (9 does this mean everything from sandals, to pants, to shirt, to underwear to hat?) neither shall a man put on a woman's garment( can a man wear anything except for women's garments?} : (what is the difference between put on and wear?) for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

    The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
    No where in this verse does it say anything about pants. Confused me too, what about hats, robes, sandals, underwear, scarfs, glasses, gloves, belts, wool , linen, skirts, wedding ring a cross, a smile . Who gets to what????

    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
  • Lu2677
    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.
