He hit on the subject of legalism and noted that it depends on your attitude, and that we should not just obey a law. But at the same time, carefully outlines the clothing of the early Isrealites to the letter as if they are the standards we Christians should live by.
And I wish that people who go to great legnths to write long and laborious articles would get the difference between "to" and "too" (also). "I am going to" means I am heading towards a destination" but the writer stopped just before mentioning that destination.
"I am going too" means I am going also.
And when was the last time anyone saw people wearing their undies swimming? I haven't in many years, and its usually just little kids under 6 years old.
And yes, clothing does weigh you down. He said that in one of the questions. Clothing floats until its soaked and then it drops to the bottom! And it will dry...eventually...and you are wet and stay wet until then. In the mean time, the less clothed person has long since dried off!
His reasoning is way off.
But you can argue with that person until your clothes dry off and you still won't convince them.
In one of his answers, he wrote: "The Earth was created for those who love God. Please do not allow the devil to take away from the beauty of God's creation." Is man, naked and unashamed, a beauty of Gods creation? Is he not the pinical of Gods creation? Did God come and became human and took on this earthly flesh yet he did not sin? Was Jesus clothing what kept him from sinning? Was and is God "immodest" and cannot be seen? God cannot tempt us. Yet God became man just like we are.
My personal belief is that God did create earth and all that is in it for HIS pleasure and that he loved us. Satan tried to destroy that and pervert all of the earth, especially humanity. Yet Jesus came and redeamed (bought with a price) and now owns the earth and all of humanity.
What we need to do is let the world know they belong to God through Christ, so start living like it, not like we are still in our sins! Isreal lived as if they are still in their sins, because they were. But their physical "dance" you might say, was to point to Christ. But once Christ came, that dance is over. Their dance dress, their steps, life, everything they did, was to point to a future coming messiah. Once he came, it was no longer necessary to do that dance anymore. It's too late, the Messiahs box has been opened!
No need to go back and play that game anymore. It never gave them righteousness other than what God gave them in faith. Christ is our modesty now. Even this writer mentioned that while contradicting himself here: http://www.modestyrocks.com/cfm.html where he writes, "Only by the death of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, do we obtain the righteousness of God that we seek to reflect outwardly."
But he forgot that Jesus is risen again and in the same human body that we try in vain to cover up.
Besides, everytime he mentions the verse about women dressing modestly, does he and others think that women were dressing with less clothing and need to be covered more? They were covered up. None of those women were naked or in their "undies" as he puts it! Every one of those women were dressed in some of the finest and highest quality clothing! They were showing off their wealth instead of dressing less with simple, or saying it this way, modest clothing.
Why in the name of common sense do these people always associate this verse with nudity or near nudity? These women weren't dressed that way!
I can go on all day with this web page!
