Is It Biblical For Christian Women To Wear Trousers?

lets be biblical on this< no personal opinion on this>>>and when i say biblical i mean from the real intent of the holy book,  reason why i ask this is because of issues  women wearing unisex jeans, boxers, etc,  is there a thin line between these types of clothings? i believwe there is but SOME people don't believe women are even meant to put their legs in anything that looks like a trouser,

Good day every one,

I am really happy and excited on this topic because it seems like many people have been deceived in believing so many things which are contrary to God’s Word. What exactly did God say about this issue and what is His stand? We have read and heard so many things about this issue but it seems like we are not getting it all clear. One Pastor tells us one thing and another tells us another thing; and then, we are all confused and then begin to ask: Which One is Truth? But, my question where can we find the actual Truth? And can we know that it is truth?

When a question is asked, such as, One plus One, some may say three while other may say five, some may even say eleven, while others may say minus two. Despite all these answers, I know and believe that there is but one answer (which is two) and that is Truth. And whenever we hear the truth, we would know.

I have read most of the Post and arguments on this page concerning this topic and some are against wearing of trousers, others are saying that wearing trousers by women is not wrong, while some are saying it depends on region or location. In fact, it leaves my head bubbling why all these confusions.

By the special of God we shall go back to the reference and consider why God gave that command and for what purpose; or Is there another intention in the heart of God when He made that statement in Deut. 22:5? Did God just said it because He needed to fill the Bible with Words that do not Matter or did He just jokingly said it because he needed to say something? Many people may argue this fact but whenever God speaks, or whenever God says anything be it simple or with a thundering voice, It is of eternal weight and we should not take it lightly? The Issue of our dressing and appearance mattered to God. I read some say that our outward appearance does not matter and that God is interested in heart. How did you know that our outward appearance didn't matter to God?

I also read some argue that we should show them where it is in the Bible that God says that Women wearing Trouser is a sin. So until it is written in the Bible we should ignore the Truth. Then, I may as well ask them simple questions: Is Exam Malpractice in the Bible? Is child trafficking in the Bible? I guess we all know the answers to these simple questions. But, they not being in the Bible does it make them right? I guess not. If the Bible should contain all the evil in this world, we would have a book that may have more than One Billion Pages because this world is filled with as much evil in it as the people living in it. That is why God gave us an Image (that is, His Image) so that we can look through a mirror to judge what is right or wrong as we live.

I think the problem is that all of us are looking for things to suite us. We have decided to shut our eyes and ears to the Truth - which is always bitter. Truth is bitter but Truth is better.

So, if I get the argument here better. Some are saying that women wearing Trousers is Right and It never mattered to God. Then I will ask another question: Why did God mention it? Why did God speak to His Chosen People about this topic in this manner? If God is not interested in our dressing, then why speaking on it? Why did God gave it as a command to His Chosen People? I guess we all need to take God's Word serious because He said in Isaiah 55v11 - So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Matthew 24:55 also gave us an injunction where Jesus (Himself) stated the importance of God's Word: "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away." If God is willing to roll away Heaven and Earth just because of His Word - One Word, Then we should take every single Word of God Serious. Why are we arguing about a statement made by God and begin to justify our own selfish and humanly ideologies? Don't you all know that the wisdom of men is like a filthy rag before God or do you suppose that God would reduce His Standard because of man? I don't think so. We better make haste while the sun shines. We better make the right decision before it is too late and then we would regret it in Hell Fire crying if I had known.

God said in Deut.22v5

(1) A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man wear women's clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this. From The New International Version.

(2) "A woman must not put on men's clothing, and a man must not wear women's clothing. Anyone who does this is detestable in the sight of the LORD your God. From The New Living Translation.

(3) A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God. From The English Standard Version.

(4) The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. From The Kings James Version.

These statements are made up of Words not just One Word and they came out from Gods mouth. Would God allow His Words to be thrown to the dust and not make it to come to past? I guess not. If you refuse this portion of the scripture and believe the rest, are you not a hypocrite. Choosing the ones that best fits you and rejecting (neglecting) the ones that do not fit you; Is that not hypocrisy?

Please we should have a rethink and understand the Scriptures as God says it. By the way, who said that God had no standard? You better what you speak and guard yourself well because every vain word a man speaks in this world without any strong biblical backup he will answer on the Judgment day.

(1) If our universities and colleges of Education have standard or criteria that you must meet before you enter them, then God should have a standard that you must meet before you enter Heaven.

(2) If a company and job hiring institutions have a standard you must meet before they hire you, then God must have a Standard that you must meet before He will hire you to take part in His Kingdom.

(2)If playing any game has rules and regulations and laws that every player must meet before a medal is given Him or Her, the God would have rules and regulations and laws that everyone seeking a medal from Him must meet before it would be given Him.

Man knows the importance of laws and we expect that God doesn't know the importance of laws. I think we missed it somewhere. There is no argument whatsoever we may have to justify ourselves of this Truth. There are standards that we must meet in every aspect of our lives: Internal and External. God is interested in all and in every aspect of our lives; both physical appearance (dressing), spiritual appearance (holiness and righteousness), dealings with people (relationship with men) and our service to Him (Relationship with God) and others. We must not under-estimate God's Word just to suite us.

If I may ask, how do you know men's clothe and women's clothe? Simple. What is the approved clothe for men to wear? Simple, His top and His trousers. What is the approved clothe for women to wear? Simple, Her top and skirts. Why the argument? Trousers are meant for men while skirts are meant for women. How many men have you seen wear skirt? No man. Even the countries that were referenced here to be wearing gowns and agbada and so on; you will observe that there were no universal standard then in those days. There is a standard now - trousers for men, skirts for women. Every responsible woman knows that. Every responsible men knows that. Then, why are we arguing? Our arguments are baseless and clueless. We are only trying to say something that will suite us. God's word on this issue is clear. No Woman should wear that which pertains to a man, and a man should not wear that which pertains to a woman. A one and simple command which God will use to judge every one including me and you.

By the way, will you lose anything if you dress modestly? You will lose Nothing.

Since you are not sure if God permits women to wear men's dressing or men to wear women's dressing, why not women wear their own dressing and men their own dressing and stay on a safer side? If you cross over to eternity and you realize that God holds that as a standard you will still be safe because you did what was right. But if you assume in this world that women should wear men's dressing and then you die one day and getting there you found out that you were wrong and you will have no opportunity to return to amend your ways, then you will be doomed forever and ever.

So, my simple advice is this. Stay on a safer side and do what is right so that nothing will stand against you. Please, do not try to make a mistake which others made and are now regretting it in hell.

Well, many will still argue with these facts but remember, you not believing it can never reduce God's Standard which is clear; Not believing it can never reduce the flames in Hell Fire; Not believing it will not change the Truth which is in the Word of God. Get that into your memory and let it continue to ring in your memory. I pray that this message of Truth and Light will make a serious impact in your life today in Jesus Name. Amen.

I am not ashamed of the Gospel and I am not ashamed of Truth. I am not ashamed of Gods message because even though I am not perfect, yet I know that God is still working out His Plans in my Life.

If you have any questions or comments please reach me on my email: seekingthetruth2016@hotmail.com

I will be pleased to reply you as soon as I can. God Bless us all and Help us to finish well. Amen.

Can women wear pants? This question is often times asked by Christians in the church. What is the reason for stopping them from wearing trausers? Well, in the Bible (Old Testament) God tells both women and men not to wear the clothes of the opposite gender. This means that a man should look like a man and a woman whould do accordingly. It is not about trausers or skirts. It is about believing that God makes no mistakes. He never created the gay or transgener people. THey have just fallen into deceit. And the Lord comes to the church first to judge believers and only then He moves to judge the world. This means a woman can wear pants, but she should look womanly and a man should look manly.

Bible says nothing about women wearing trousers. The only scripture that talks about this subject is Deuteronomy 22:5. It says that ladies are not to wear male clothes AND men should not wear female clothes. But it does not clarify what male or female clothes are. For instnace, in Europe or America tunics (dresses) are worn only by women and considered to be purely female, while in Africa and in the East tunics are worn by men. Even Jesus wore a dress or tunic, which in our days in Europe would look rather odd. So, it's not so much about trousers or dresses, but about the gender. Women and men should not be gay or pretend to be of the opposite gender.

Bible says that women should not wear male clothes. Likewise men should not wear female clothes. The question is does that mean culturally? In some cultures like in Ireland men wear skirts. Is it Biblical for them to do so? It all depends what your culture defines as male or female attire. There is no such thing as “Biblical” standard for clothing and gender. It varies from culture to culture.

As you may know, today’s fashion actively promotes androgenic style (being male and female at the same time) and that certainly is not biblical. However, God does not look at appearance, but His looks at our hearts and how they honor Him. That is the key element of Christianity, and not the looks and fashions.

The purpose of wearing clothes is to cover unclothedness, that's the original purpose God made clothes for Adam and Eve after the GLORY of God as a covering had departed from them consequent upon their disobedience. So, no matter the king of clothes u use to cover ur unclothedness, as long as ur unclothedness is well covered and u don't harrass people's emotions when u sit or stay among them, u don't commit any sin. Modesty is what we must check in our lives while dressing and the word "MODESTY" individualitic. So, using of trousers by women is never a sin!! Thank.

Bible might be written by men but it speaks the undilluted truth and this powerful book has been in existence for years. Women are delicate creature who are under attack but unfortunately the eve's mistake in the garden never taught women enough lesson but i have made this promise to myself that even though Adam and so many men of our generation fall to evil for a careless and reckless woman's sake...i won't ! Remember the 1st sin was disobedience and same is happening in all areas of the world using women as their acting force. women becareful...i am so sure in hell...there will be more women than men....its not criticism...do the survey with your conscience.God bless you who dwell in righteousness and remember...a sinner selfish points are always baseless...lacks obedience( always use it as ur check to find fake preachers and anti christs coz they are living among us)...i am not a saint but i know what is good and i try my best to be good rather than finding reasons to justify my being bad...thats anti christ attitude.

People should not use other tribes and nations dressing as excuse to support wearing of the opposite sex cloth.Every tribe has its different dressing code:male and female style. Right here in Nigeria,we know trouser rightfully belongs to men and boys and not the women or ladies. So,we should not support the wearing of the opposite sex cloth under the pretext of imitating other nations around us.

May i also ask those who scream that it is sinful for women to weae trousers:

why do you all profane the law of the sabbath?

The bible says:

Remember the sabbath day and keep it holy, Therein thou shalt do no work. No ,market, no washing, nothing. And the sabbath is a saturday. Are we justified under the law but by faith in Jesus, who desires holiness and love out of a pure heart?

Do you still observe the ordinances of touching the unclean things, sacrificing animals?

If you attempt to be saved by the law and break one of them, you're guilty of all.

Jesus has come to redeem us from the law so we, as gentiles, are not bound to follow them towards justification.

As a matter of fact, you deny Jesus if you attempt to live by those old testament laws.

Deuteronomy 25:5-6

If brothers are living together and one of them dies without a son, his widow must not marry outside the family. Her husbands brother shall take her and marry her and fulfill the dutiy of a brother in law to her. The first son she bears shall carry the name of the dead brother s that his name will not be blotted out from Isael.

Then read Mark 12 :18-27

V19 Teacher they said Moses wrote for us That if a man brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and have children for his brother

In verse 24 Jesus did not condemn the practice he only said that in heaven the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage.

So does this mean the practice is right and biblical. Why do we condemn it anytime we hear of a widow being forced to marry her ex husbands brother.

If you dont keep this law that was clearly stated, stop making noise about a law that does not even mention the word trousers.

The ONE question we should be asking here has to do with the decency of the person, and not whether its a skirt or a trouser. Some skirts are terribly indecent, and some trousers are far more decent than some skirts. And what with women having roles that are less passive, it is far safer for them to wear trousers.

Another teaser: Is it Biblical for women to wear skirts? Because the Bible asked them not to wear skirts, it was men's clothing in the days.

The 10 commandments i think has given us the do's and dont's of the bible.The other chapters and verses i think clearly explains and elaborates on the 10 commandments.It was not cateforitcally stated that it was wrong for women not to wear trousers, but the bible said do not wear what belongs to a man and vice versa;from my little understanding on that verse, i think it says do not wear what a man has already worn, i am not particularly sure though, so i would need an explanation of that verse, and funny i dont even know the book of the bible where that is, but i know i have come across it in the bible.

Love what is good hate what is evil. That is the commandment of the apostle.

The Law is good is good through and through. Only thru the Holy Spirit can one perfect its observance.

Meditate on the commandments and know the will of thy True God.

This is 1 Tim 2, with Paul advising on the standard of decorum for, amongst other thing/people, women.

1I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made fo everyone—

2for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

3This is good, and pleases God our Savior,

4who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

5For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

6who gave himself as a ransom for all men—the testimony given in its proper time.

7And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles.

8I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.

9I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,

10but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.

11A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.

12I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.

13For Adam was formed first, then Eve.

14And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.

15But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

Is this the standard we see in the churches? How about the stuff of women NOT having braided hair

BTW, women are saved through childbearing. That's a new one.

The same Scripture that you read says it from the ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART THE MOUTH SPEAKETH. What that part says is that a man cannot wear think look hear walk [/b]to fornicative and adulterous life if his [b]heart does not demand it.

If you apply it in the way you have quoted it this means that you can kill someone and there is no sin committed. What Jesus says is that the Battle is in the heart, Not outside the body, The PROOF THAT A MAN IS MAD IS THAT HE BEHAVES MAD OUTWARDLY.

Where did paul say let us leave the ELEMENTARY TEACHINGS? What is the mature Spiritual things?

THE JEWS WERE A CALLED OUT PEOPLE!

CHRISTIANS ARE ALSO CALLED OUT PEOPLE!

YES WE LIVE BY THE LAW OF GOD THAT LAW IS[b] LOVE [/b]BUT WE MUST ALSO BE ORDERLY AND MODEST.

DID YOU NOT HEAR JESUS SAY UNLESS YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS EXCEED THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES. DID YOU THINK ALL THE PHARISEES AND SCRIBES IN THEIR TIME WERE UNHOLY AND HYPOCRITES?

I find this topic quite interesting, not because it is a serious Jesus issue, but because it exposes how we xtians poorly know our WAY-the WAY-JESUS. Jesus said that it is the things that comes out of a man that defies him not what goes in.

Apostle Paul said let us leave the elementary teaching and squabbles, moving into mature spiritual matters, like knowing the will of god through the mastry of the HolyS.

Was deut talking to the Jews or the Xtians. Do we posses the holy spirit sufficiently to know the apt interpretation of all bible commentary on these issues.

Well, i will liek to make a final submission. Trousers, hairdo (what they call perming or whatever) are all things that are outside the gats of zion. I count them as distractions when people debate them as they are very immature teachings or children's lessons. There are greater things/lessons to extract from the world which are very much yet untapped. Thats why you see women ministers in trousers still flowing in the annointing. The child of God has better mysteriese of Christ to unravel than dwell on trousers or no trousers.

Many thanks,

In ancient times, as throughout many countries today, a person's social rank could be determined by his dress. Similarly, dress is a significant measurement of Christian conduct and practice. Christians can often by identified as such by their outward appearance.

Our people predicate their practices and beliefs upon the Bible. In baptism, we practice immersion in the name of Jesus as the apostles did. We teach and preach the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a definite experience evidenced by speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.

Since we adhere as carefully and closely to the Scriptures as possible in matters pertaining to salvation, we also measure the standards of Christian practicalities such as clothing, by the same rule.

Moreover, the Scriptures teach a great difference between femininity and masculinity as to dress. "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God" (Deuteronomy 22:5).

The desire to emulate men in dress has seriously affected the fine and noble characteristics of womanhood. Often it takes a second glance to determine the sex of a woman today, due to the distorted and strange garb she wears and the close proximity of her attire to that of a man. The Scriptures call this practice an abomination unto God, or something God hates.

We are not living by the law. Yes that is true. But we are under the grace of Christ. But should we then sin that grace may abound ? God forbid.

We have been called to orderliness because we are redeemed by an excellent spirit. A woman shall not wear the clothing of a man PERIOD.

A child Shall not wear an apparel not fit for him. Do you know that there are Men that dress up as women? is that a style?

God forbid. Why will i have to? I have been told not to espcially as Christ as come to remove the complexities of the law. You are trying to impose the law on freeborns when you try to say that ladies should not wear trousers. The truth is you cannot keep the law as it is written being a mortal man. We no longer live by dos and donts. We are now in the period of grace courtesy th finishd work of Christ. You only entangle yourself when you try to live by the law.

Now, you hav tried to suite yourself by giving that illustration. The bible is not talking about styles of cloths or design here. Dont try to bring it in at all. It is simply talking about materials. Even if it is just a shirt and trouser you have worn with both made with different materials, you have broken that law! Its as simple as that.

So it is not design neither was God telling them the style of clothes to wear. He was simply referring to the materials thos clothes were made of. I don't think it s a complex matter.

If you therefore cannot keep that one, why single out the other?

11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

Those who do say wearing trousers is sinful should tell us if they do not violate verse 11. How many times have you worn merged materials of different texturs together? Why keep one and throw away the other in the same chapter? That is simply hipocrisy. That's my take on this issue? If you cant keep all, dont keep one.

Hi joeycrack,

I don't think so. Jesus warned aabout how people let their cultures and traditions get in the way and prevent them from obeying God's WORD (Matt. 15:3)

What "law" would the many from the north be disobeying?

@banderas, The bible cares a great deal abt culture.

@ Topic

What the bible is sayin is dat women should not dress in traditonally mens clothes and vice-versa.

Therefore whether it is a sin or not s cultural i.e ur tradition. Like Jesus said the bible is not against your culure. For exmple a man wearing a skirt in scotland is not a sin because it is the culture of the scots meanwhile a man in the north wearing a skirt will probably be disobeyin the law.

So also, in India women were trousers that is their culure, In places with cold climates like eastern Europe it is a neccessity for women to wear trousers that wouldn't be a sin, likewise it is not a sin for women to where trousers in certain circumstances like jobs and sports.

Apart from the conditions above, women wearin clothes culturally known to be the apparell of men will be a disobedience to the law.

In conclusion, Even though we ar not bound by the laws of the old testament,the bible says let your moderation be known to all men, it depends on ur personall conviction, hw u rate moderation. thats my 2cents

Okay. Since people are wondering about women in "trousers", another way to ask the question is:

Is it Biblical for Christian Women to Wear Engineer's Overalls?

Before anyone begins to ask me where I saw "engineer's overalls" in the Bible, I'm asking them to show me where I can find "trouser" in Deuteronomy 22:5.

In other words, sin is cultural - If you live in a culture where it's ok to wear trousers then it's not sin. I guess this is what y'all are saying?
