# 00105 :  Should women wear pants for meeting

Well, most women feel completely as ease wearing denims, or other fabric pant, most wear them to church too, but the elders find it against the Believers practise, is there a book on the code and conduct available for such meetings.  If so what should it be?

first of all, jeans and such dresses are of men. And i think in isaiah it is said tat a women must not wear dress of men and a man should not wear of a woman. There may be different cultures, traditions, fashions and styles in diffrent places. But the Bible principles remain the same. Dont think about our own comfort, think about God, whether He is ok with our dressing? All true Christians whether male or female should be simple in their dressing and living. Keep this in ur mind. Leave these type of worldly life and hav a simple Christian life tat is Biblical. 1 Pet 3, asks us to be simple. May God bless you.

That's not entirely true. There are jeans meant for only girls too. I don't think men would want to wear them.

yeah.. if women wear men's dress it is wrong. Women should wear women's Jeans and pants and tops. Not Men's. That is perfectly fine and does not violate anything.

Hi

We should not bothered what you are wearing for worship meetings, but How is your mind. Western countries most of them wear jeans and pants. But normally in  Kerala or even gulf no ladies wears jeans or pants for church meetings.  We have to respect the culture also where ever you are. You shouldn't hurt the people or dont give a chance to speak about you.

it is all the more better for a girl to wear a dress or other dressy clothes than tight jeans to church. We wear our best to go to worship god. God honors that.

But it is not a must. I remember my mom wers nice clothes to church looks neat and Godly look.

What is the meaning of ‘But it is not a must’? This statement encourages a girl can wear tight jeans to church, if she likes, even if God does not honor that. God’s concern needs not to be a matter at all, for that girl.

I hope ‘ds’ follows her mom’s footsteps.

 I'm unable to comment much but I believe that men and women of whatever culture should dress respectfully and give no offence to anyone not even the angels. The passages should be seen in their social and culture of the time in which they were written

The dress code
What to wear where and where had been discussed in the Brethren circle for decades and it still remains an unsolved problem. While in my teens (during the late 60s) one young man raised a question in a youth meeting, “Is it appropriate for a believer to wear T-shirts?” Around the same period of time in a prominent assembly in Kerala one young brother send a notice to one of the elders saying that all financial support to Bro. “S”- who was a prominent evangelist in North India, should be withdrawn as his daughters have come wearing churidar to the assembly during one of their family visits to Kerala. To my understanding, the girls were wearing the only dress they had, which was their school uniform.
While the Bible says that man should not wear women’s dress and a women should not wear man’s dress it did not specify on the type of dress in the eternal wisdom of God, because the type for man and women varies according to the culture and time in which we live. In my understanding it only means that man and woman must dress in a manner that their sex should be identified at the very first sight.
While no one can insist a dress code for Christians an honest Christian must understand and consider certain things. A true Christian is not selfish and he/she seeks the good of others. That means the rights; desires and comforts are sacrificed for the good of others who might be weaker in many ways.  We must understand that we are living in the midst of three generations all the time. The older generation who are in their seventies (60-80) may not and cannot understand or accept the present trends and the present generation who are in their 20-40s may not understand the older generation and their feelings and in most cases willfully neglect to consider them. Remember, honor your father and mother is a command with a promise.  Then we also have the third generation, which are the grand- children of the older generation. Now a good and genuine Christian must be considerate to all the three generations of people. They should not insist on wearing something which would be offensive to the older generation and are not an example to the third generation. There are certain standards that were established by our forefathers and the elders of an assembly. One should not violate and hurt them and bring dishonor to them for his/her own comfort and selfish ideas. Our rights and privileges should be exercised in a balanced way to bring Glory to the name of the Lord and also harmony to the body of Christ. This is a strong teaching established by Apostle Paul when he wrote to the Corinthians.
My second thought in regard is from the parable of the marriage feast. Here the man who was found without a proper wedding dress was cast in to the darkness where there is weeping and gnashing. Why the king was so cruel? All the guests were supplied with proper garments. But this one man purposely rejected the king’s own gracious provision. While it speaks of the garment of righteousness which the Lord offers to a believer, may I take it in the primary realm. Not wearing a proper garment was an insult to the king who invited him to the feast. Why we wear good and valuable dress when we go for a wedding party? In my opinion the way I dress for an occasion indicates my respect to my host. If we are dressed in a shabby outfit when we come to the assembly meetings which are in the presence of the King of kings and in to His banqueting table we are dishonoring the Lord. Will you go to your brother’s wedding in that outfit or for a job interview or even to meet your boss at work? Is the Lord in whose presence you come is of any lesser importance and respect?

Show some respect to the Lord and to your elders and be an example to your younger generation

Why do people even discus this? Do you have any idea what dress men and women wore during the time The books of the BIBLE were written? there was no jeans no saree no churidhar then.... and during that time men and women wore similar looking dresse with differences only in Head coverings and waist bands and such... If you dont think im right, just google it to see images of hebrew famiies then you would know. So its not about pants are for men or women. Its about dressing for the occasion. be dressed in the best possible dress cos you are coming in to worship your maker. Its totally an individuals discreation and not dictated by CHURCH. 

Just a note about JEANS: the jeans that we think i a fashion statement was developed for the american laborers to wear when they do heavy work, denime need not be washed every day... so yeah... if you think that fits your crtiteria as APROPRIATE, you be the judge.
