Teen Scene!

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to draw your attention to another website I made. It’s: tennscene4christ.wordpress.com

I think this one will be better because it deals with more than just modesty, bit a whole variety of topics, we don’t have much on there now, but it will be the main focus of the two sites. I encourage you to visit the website, post me a question, or read what we have on there! Enjoy!

Why we Should Dress Modestly

Hi everyone! I hope you are finding the website helpful! This article is mainly going to be about WHY we should dress modestly.

First I want to address what can happen if your modesty is violated or goes unheeded, or plainly, you ignore it. Now I am quoting from a very famous female author, well she is famous in my denomination anyway. She says, Women today …’ act like coquettes. (meaning women who like to win the attention … of men but do not have any serious feelings for them) They encourage the attentions of both single and unmarried men, and those who are weak in mortal power will be ensnared.’

So… if you dress seductively you may be pulling some young christian guy away from his relationship with the Lord, even worse you might be putting yourself in danger.

Let’s see what else Sister White has to say to us,’Cherish the precious, priceless gem of modesty. This will guard virtue…. I feel impelled by the Spirit of the Lord to urge my sisters who profess godliness to cherish modesty…’

Of course when she says ‘my sisters who profess godliness’ she means other Christians like her, but what if you aren’t a Christian? If you aren’t a christian, this is still for you. Even though you might not know God, it is still important how you dress. You might come to know God later on.

So one of the reasons you should dress modestly is so you don’t get yourself in danger, of being well… you don’t want to know, but you put yourself in great danger.

Another reason to dress modestly, Christian young ladies, is that God wants us to ‘be a peculiar treasure unto’ him. (Exodus 19:5) That means that he wants us to dress like he wants us to dress, to act like he wants us to act, and to be what he wants us to be.

He wants us to be like him! 1 Peter 2:9 says, ‘But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:’

A peculiar people! We are chosen to be God’s own! If we are called to be God’s people, we should dress, and act, and talk, like he wants us to.

So… I hope I have been helpful, if you have any questions, just comment in the comment box.

God’s Blessings,

Modesty and why it’s Important

Hello everyone! And welcome to the new Your Modesty Matters website! I hope you are finding it helpful, even though this is my first post. Oh well, with that said I will launch into my article…

 

First let’s look at the definition of modesty. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary provides two definition of modesty, but we will look at the second definition. It says, ‘the quality of behaving and especially dressing in ways that do not attract sexual attention.’ So when you dress in really really short shorts, or you wear bikinis when you swim, are you dressing modestly?

Some of you girls out there might be Christians, I don’t know, but if you are a Christian dressing like this, this article is for you. (If you are not a christian, just keep reading anyway, this article is for everyone, I am just addressing the Christian girls personally.) You see as Christians, us girls need to represent the pure bride of Christ, his church. If you go out there dressed as the harlot of Revelation 17, who are you saying you belong to?

Now please don’t miss understand me on this. Don’t go thinking that I am here to point out what you are doing wrong, so I can blame you. Not at all! Some of you Christian girls might not know that how you are dressing is the wrong way, so I am just here to help you in your walk with Christ.

Why is modesty important? Well for one thing, can you see Jesus dressing like that? For you girls, it would be a little more challenging to ask yourself, “Would Jesus wear that?” so you can just say to yourself, “Would Jesus approve of me wearing this?” or “If I were meeting Jesus today, would I wear that to go and see him?”

Now let’s talk a little bit about guys. What do they have to do with being modest? Well, listen! Guys are very visual, that means they use their eyes a lot, they take in all that is around them, and they notice a lot of things. If you are a Christian young lady that is dressing in see through clothing and you wear mini skirts, you think that christian young guy is going to notice what you are showing? Are you helping keep these Christian young men pure?

I personally LOVE skirts that go down to my ankles or somewhere around there. If you don’t like it, get some skirts/dresses that go at least a ways past your knees.

I do have a few skirts that if you look at them at a certain angle or lighting, you might be able to see through them, so I just wear a slip underneath those ones.

I know it is real hard to find modest clothes in today’s society, but you can find a few skirts in Walmart, in the Woman’s section, sometimes. But my favorite place to get clothes is from thrift stores. Some of my favorite clothes came from there. Second hand stores can have some beautiful things!

     I hope this has helped some of you Christian young people like me. Coming soon, I will try to add a thing where you can comment on my posts and ask questions if you need to! My blessings,

Adriana

Ps. I will go into more detail on why we can’t wear stuff like bikinis and a see-through tops.
