Some girl from a beuaty contest in a bikini on national television says she doesn't like homosexual marriage, thereby causing a bit of furor from people who like homosexual marriages. But what about all the guys out there that don't like homosexual marriage, but they sure do like to gawk at girls in bikinis talking about how they don't like homosexual marriage? A lot of interesting things seem to mark the trail to Gomorrah. But there are still a few fathers out there who think there may be something to those old principles of purity, modesty, and shamefacedness contained in that old, tattered, forgotten book in the corner over there. Would I really want my daughter touting her features on the cover of Playboy or Cosmo or the Miss USA pageant? There's a question every father better ask himself.
Great Message! Excellent points I pray believers have the ears to hear. I grew up spending a lot of time on the beach running, surfing and sunning being frequently without shirt. Even many years after becoming a believer in Jesus.
A few years ago I was convicted by the Spirit that even for men while around women this is wrong and immodest which we must shun. Today, now I seek to be covered (but not in a sack like Kevin noted).
I hope women obey the command for them to dress modest as so many do not. For example, how many who profess to be Christians prance around the beach, pool or lake in the equivalent of a bra and panties? For there is NO differences between the two and it is terribly offensive and an indictment against the modern evangelical church and how far from God's word she is.
