WHAT DECENCY IS NOT PART 1
DECENCY IS “OLD FASHIONED”
The look on my face when I hear people preach or write on decency and when I see people who profess decency in their dressing. This is not to downplay anyone’s opinion but straighten out some things 🤗
You see, the issue about modesty has been so much misconceived and that has made people to believe they can’t deal with it🙅🏼♀️.
Modesty / decency has been advertised in an unappealing way and as a result, people loose interest in it.
Look at it this way, have you ever been so hungry looking for food and finally you saw a place to get food but the environment or the person selling it is so dirty that you immediately loose interest in the food?
That’s how it is, if modesty is not appropriately advertised as should be (not as men portray it to be but as God ordained it), we just might not get as much patronage as we should 💁🏽♀️
Being modest doesn’t mean you are out of trend or you have to be old fashioned. No! Absolutely not! Till Jesus come, fashion, technology, inventions will keep increasing and changing and that doesn’t mean we cannot use them. Of course, we can but in a different way; the right way👍🏼
Romans.12.2 – And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
That means, we are to shuffle the ones we use. Not all styles of clothes should be worn by you. Not all designs are made for you.
Modesty isn’t “boring”. It simply means unnecessary extravaganza- unnecessary drama and details that can be avoided or minimized.
Modesty is not ignoring the trend. Some styles worn back in the 80’s and 90’s cannot be worn now, of course you’ll be ignored even though some of those styles are still incorporated into the modern fashion now, but with some additional designs and modifications to make it more stylish and sophisticated.
This is to inform you that modest fashion isn’t about being old or out of trend, rather it is about what you decide to go for and how you go about it. You can be modern and modest. You can be fashionable yet godly. They are not contradictory.
So please, in the bid to encourage and compel people to dress modestly, let’s not overdo it. All of these unbiblical opinions circulating the social media spaces should be discarded.
That’s why you need to be close to the guide; the Bible. It is the oldest book but with the current news and has something to say to every single debatable issues you are confused with at the moment even your fashion.
