    Where the scripture on a woman wearing pants
  • Chris - In Reply on Deuteronomy 5 - 3 years ago
    Deuteronomy 22:5 was a command about this given to the children of Israel: "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."

    However, this Scripture does not give a warrant for us these days, as 'pants' are made for both genders & their acceptability in society. In those early days, this matter about clothing would have been more meaningful as they were not only gender-specific but more likely, amongst the heathen, the exchange of clothing in temple worship was common in honour of their god or goddess. So, Israel was not to imitate the heathen in this practise.

    I believe its the reason why men would what to wear womens clothes or why women would wear mens clothes. Being gay is one reason which is wrong. My mother wore overalls working on the farm. Dresses would not work, working in the fields. .
