Trousers Or Mini Skirts: Which Is A Sin?

I recently bought a pair of jeans for my girlfriend on her birthday and she rejected it because of some religious belief she holds about a lady putting on trousers, but funnily enough she wears some very tight fitting mini skirts which I think can drive a man crazy.

Please I need some advice on what to do as I love her but we haven’t spoken for the last one week and it’s driving me crazy

Its high time understand the religious interpretation of this wearing clothes so as to educate all the religious fanatics who barley no anything about biblical meanings and interpretation before running conclusions and condemning people, things and other believes

When the God says man should not wear women's clothes and women should not wear men's clothes, He is not talking of style and fashion. In Scotland, their men where skirts. In our eastern and southern Nigeria, men tie wrappers. In many part of Europe, women traditionally wear trousers. Many occupational uniform is trouser.

What God says is that A MAN SHOULD NOT WEAR CLOTHES ALREADY WORN BY A WOMAN AND A WOMAN SHOULD ALSO NEVER WEAR CLOTHES ALREADY WORN BY A MAN. it is unholy in the site of GOD not STYLE, DESIGNS AND FASHION.

Even Dogs and other sniffing animals prohibits it. If a dog sniffs a difference in the odour of the clothes you wear and that of your body odour, the dog will bark you strongly because its finding difficult to identify you. Its unholy before God and also and attempt to disguise before GOD. i only pity those that wear second hand clothes. you might be committing a lot of SINS this way.

The basic thing about dress is just to cover the part that are not suppose to be exposed.For a lady,the whole of the body is bind to be covered because we're made to understand that all their body are precious and are not suppose to be expose to others except their husband and families.For a man,from navel to our kneel must be covered.All of this things are necessary to prevent some certain event from occuring and for which if occurs can damage lots of things.So either trousers for ladies or mini skirts are bad.

Ladies are meant to wear skirt that wld cover them all.

SIN is just a word and nothing else, rename it as 'wrong', 'naughty', 'bad' or whatever you want.

We are always trying to connect things to the pretend God, instead of on a normal, human level.

nothing is a sin. Bleep all these poo ppl are thinking. u just don't have to be cheap when guys are around. i wear mini-skirt as i find myself sexy eventhough i wear jeans. though some think that to get girls easily. it depends on how they perform themselves but im not in2 that stuff.

but too much of these showing of body (just to have limits)

like some of diz celebrities wear those stuff just cuz is their style and to some it attracts ppl or some youths about how they wear. i think being simple is okay. is okay to wear jeans and mini-shirts or short but just know what u do, datz it.

@tlops,

I think that is the point we should all try to make instead of the name-calling and no answers. Personally, I'm persuaded about the same point you made; only that I would put it like this:

Wearing trousers or miniskirts can become a sin if it helps another person to sin.

I am only saying if u think wearing of trouser is a sin then consider the other sinful actions that this part of the scriptures gives. You will find out that in this other part we fall short, then we should ask shoujld wearing of mixed material clothing be allowed.because most don't know this could be counted as sin if we follow this passage literally.

5We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

but in this matter, I don't think its wrong but all things should be done moderately.

1 cor 8: 9-13

Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 10For if anyone with a weak conscience sees you who have this knowledge eating in an idol's temple, won't he be emboldened to eat what has been sacrificed to idols? 11So this weak brother, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. 12When you sin against your brothers in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. 13Therefore, if what I eat (wear )causes my brother to fall into sin, I will never eat(wear it) meat again, so that I will not cause him to fall.

d bible did not mention trousers.

the bible passage that pple quote on this topic is

Deut 22:5

5 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.

but if u read down u find out that its just some form of self righteosness that makes people hammer on this as they break other laws that follow after this.

Deut 22:8-9

8 When you build a new house, make a parapet around your roof so that you may not bring the guilt of bloodshed on your house if someone falls from the roof.

9 Do not plant two kinds of seed in your vineyard; if you do, not only the crops you plant but also the fruit of the vineyard will be defiled. [a]

Today we talk of multicropping crop rotation and co No one sees this as sin.

Deut 22:11

11 Do not wear clothes of wool and linen woven together

Anyone still talking on trouser or no trouser should check the shirt he or she is wearing if its 70% polyester and 30% cotton its sin are u aware.

Its the work of religious bigots who try to imprison people by their self righteousness. why empasize on this and not the remaining part of the passage. byye

Hey am confused! I thought women have their own kind of trousers designed specifically for them. And i guess that is not longer a men's dress since the makers had the intention of making it for women. If the jewish movies I watch portrays some part of jewish culture, then what will you say about the wrapper like things that the RABBI's wear. I mean that is not trouser. It looks more like a skirt or something like a wrapper.

too much time on your hands!!!!!! FACT!!!!

if una get work, una for no find time to dey argue all this kind rubbish!!!!

you can NOT force somoen to change their belief system no matter how much you try!!!

the same people that use deutronomy will "edit" the bible to suit themselves!!!!

the fact is that there are certain parts of the bible that were not written TO us!!!!!!! there are 3 groups of people all throughtout the bible; Jews, Gentiles (non-jews) and the church!! This is what i mena by because our foundation is wrong, EVERYTHING ELSE we build on top WILL be wrong!!!!!

if you study the word properly, you will see that even though ALL scripture is for reproof, correction is not the same as all scripture is written TO a group of people. the Old Testament is meant to be a book we can LEARN from!!!! not to follow in customs and rituals!!!!!!

if thats the case, when you women are on your monthly cycle, go and live outside the town till you finish!!!! when you men die, go to your graves thinking how your brother (God help your wife if you have 10 brothers!! LOL) will take "over" your role and will continue throughout!!! oh another one, go and worhsip in a proper temple!

my friend, go sit down somewhere!

women, wear what you are comfortable with and still be a lady!!!! if you are comortable with it and look good in it (believe me it does help!!!) then go for it. and if you are not sure, "whatsoever things are pure, of good report, loving, kind moedest, think on these things!!!!!

Very soon you will be saying jewellery and make-up will send you to hell!!!!! LOL

oh please! that is why Jesus called the scribes broods of vipers!!! cos they looked the part in public but were filthy inside!!!

Peace!

hi people,

the bible says in deuteronomy 22:5 that "a man shall not wear wat pertains to a woman, neither shall a woman put on a man's garment, for all that do so are abomination to the lord". if u read further, there are several laws there, like we should not sow seeds of divers in the same land, we should not sow clothes of wool and linen combined together. but funny enough today, so many religious people obey the 1st part of not wearing a man's garment and forget about the rest.

the bible did not make mention of trouser(take note). it said man's garment and woman's garment. today we think that trousers are meant for men, but we should forget that we also have women's trousers. that is a woman's garment. even in the time this law was given. wat did the israelites wear? they wore clothes like skirts(for men). if u have watched jesus of nazareth, wat garment did he wear? it looked like a long gown( today thats for women). so was that a sin?

so my friends, trouser is not the issue, but the issue is in obeying the totality of God's word. let me tell u here that this law was meant for the nation of isreal in the 1st place and not for the gentiles. till today, if they truelly want to obey God, they must follow those laws. dont so many people today sow garments of divers materials? dont so many people plant different kinds of seeds in one plot of land? so why dont they obey this laws too?

please my friends think about it. if u want more information on this thread u can call me on 08034348342. i accept night calls. thanks very much.

I don't think you post is necessary.

If you had properly read my earlier post, you will realise that I said the final decision is of the wearer.

This simply put means that there are guidelines in the Holy Bible which generally lead you to godly living, but what matters the most is the way you go about it (like you could decide not to forsake the gathering of the saints and still not be guaranteed of heaven).

I would advice that you read and effectively understand people's posts before you comment on them, otherwise, just state your opinion about the topic and move on. There is also room for you to ask for clarification in an instance where you do not understand a person's post.

Your sins are forgiven,just believe,loose your mind from the boundage of guilt.What ever you do that is not harming another person is your own choice and you shouldn't feel guilty about it.Life have no limitations,rules and morals are all man made,depending on how it suits you and society in general,it is subject to change,just like every other thing in life.The reason why africa is not moving forward is that people are not changing with time.We should make our own rules to our 21st century needs.CHANGE.

Clothings being a sin depends on the perspective from which you view it.

From the Christian angle, any form of dressing is a sin if it causes another person to sin.

Also, sexes are also expected not to exchange clothes, like men dressing like women and vice versa (Deuteronomy 22 vs 5). This is good because what is meant for women or men is determined by the culture of the environment where you are.

So, decide for yourself; does the mini make you sin (even "lookery" is one)? Then it is sin. If not, she is good to go.

A story was once told of a lady that switched from wearing trousers to mini skirts. Her reason was that by the time she wriggles out of the usually tight trousers, his man has lost his 'u-know-what'.

Ethically, I think the trousers is more conservative than the mini skirt. With the trousers, you only have a mental picture which could be blurred or clear depending on the pervertive index of your brain.

With the mini, you can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel, if you look long and look hard.

Exactly! It's funny how people somehow assume that just because God is love he wouldn't paradoxically throw them all into hell for wickedness and abominations like women deigning to wear trousers.

To be fair, I think that's why the devil and his cohorts fiddled with the climate: to encourage people to cross-dress. Some have complained about the cold; I say if Jesus could have borne his cross like a man, then it's a small price for a woman to bear the cold like a man - a amn that wears skirts, only that would be an abomination, but you get the point.

Next thing you know humans are suffering from stds and AIDs, yet some want to blame God for them not knowing that it was all started by the mini skirt.

I agree. I knew a woman who said there was nothing wrong with wearing men's boxers shorts; now, she's a lawyer and an atheist.

But you and I do know that women don't wear what they wear to help themselves against harsh weather. However they are after who salivates after their figures and sleep with them in mind. That is big sin but men want to commit sins without physically engaging in them. Again wear houses and fashion designers do what they see as money-spinning. Morality has a lot to reject if we don't wanna remain hypocritical. Well, we are all hypocrites! What many do is what less people do not do in order to remian good in God's face and make heaven. Nobody is going to heaven afterall!!

That part of the bible that talks about women not wearing mens apparel also says things like

"an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth", and "if a woman is in her period, then she is unclean", or things like that.

My point is that if you are going to lift a verse out of the bible, then take everything else that comes with it.

As far as i'm concerned this is just another example of mind-control and fundamentalism to keep our women cowered.

If you think what you see is turning you on, then look away, period. Some men can look at muslim women in their

hijabs and still see what they want to see.

I'm not advocating indecency, but people should let this women and trouser issue die abeg!!

Leave the women alone, and face your own life!

PS I'm not going to make a religious debate, so im going to be silent from now on.

[color=#000099][/color] We should know that most of the other things which you mentioned were actually later treated in the new testament cos that was part of why we had the new testament so that some of the other things which were mistreated in the old testament were corrected. Some of why we see some of those things according to Jesus to the Jews during the issue of divorce was because of their strong mind, if they were acting on the basis of if your neighbor should slap you on the right cheeks turn the left also to him, I am sure most of the people at that time will come and steal your goat and expect you to also give him your cow after taking that otherwise you not giving him the cow will be against the law, most of these other issues has been treated in the new testament like the issue of tooth for tooth, Jesus said if your neighbor should slap you on the right cheek, you should also turn the left, likewise on issue of unclean, when God told Peter to stand up and eat some unclean things and he said they were unclean, God said he should not call anything created by God unclean so almost every other things that were not the perfect will of God in the old testament were retreated, so why was it that in the new testament nothing was said about Deuteronomy 22:5 was because it was correct, Just like many of the other right things were not changed but consolidated like thou shall not steal, they are still under where it was written that an eye for an eye, one was changed the other was not, because one was wrong, the other was right, can you tell me where it is written in the religious books that Indecency is a sin, but isn't it actually a sin, "need answers", Genesis 35 1 Then God said to Jacob, "Go up to Bethel and settle there, and build an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you were fleeing from your brother Esau." 2 So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes. 3 Then come, let us go up to Bethel, where I will build an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and who has been with me wherever I have gone." 4 So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods they had and the rings in their ears, and Jacob buried them under the oak at Shechem. 5 Then they set out, and the terror of God fell upon the towns all around them so that no one pursued them.

Why did they also remove the rings from their ears when they were asked to purify themselves if it was not making them unholy, consider also 8 I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; 9 in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, 10 but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. That is why it is written, Narrow is the way that leadeth to heaven and only few is following there, it will be easier for a horse to pass through the eye of a neighbor than for a woman to get to the kingdom of God, so many side attractions, and don't mistake me for a deeper life, but I so much like the church's principles.

I feel u, U use that opportunity show us u can speack Spanish,

But lets face reality, You guys say Girls put on trouslers simple because of the weather, i really dont beleive that. Cos there are still some wears that are very decent and wount cause heat during the Hot weather, I worked in a textile company for 3years,

Those who started it, had an inner motive, which was to seduce men, While Millions of others saw it as a style and they all go after it now, These days even women of 75 put on trouslers, They say it is a style,

God help us. What i know is we should all do what pleases God, we should do what is in the scriptures, God dont need to put Trouslers in the bible, before common sense can us it is a SIN,

God help us all,

It Takes the Grace of God to Beleive this,

The wicked shall be turned to hell and the nations that forget God.  The fact every one does something does not mean it is right.  The Lord will not hold back putting a whole nation to hell.  Exodus makes it clear that you should not follow the multitude to do evil.  Trousers on women is what a Christian calls wickedness and abomination.  These couldn't be done 50 years ago.  The more reason why divorce is flourishing without bounds or limits.  Plus, negative spirits encircle any human that cross dresses.  It's also a turn-off in the physical realm too.  The reason men don't complain is because most have learnt to embrace pervesion (perverts).  The Psalmist said "Lord, incline not my heart to practice iniquity."  It's unlady-like to be in trousers. 

Mini Skirts - If you know the history to this, any decent girl wouldn't be caught in this circle.   A child of the devil started this in the late of '55 which ushered in the swinging sixties.

The worst so far is women wearing boxer-briefs (boxer shorts). This is so un-called for. Sin starts from something small and blows out of proportion when appreciated.

@ KAG, LMAO at your post. You're in london and you call wearing trouser a sin. that's strange because the weather here is rather harsh, and most people don't wear skirts because of this. Even pastor's wives do wear trousers. As for me, I haven't seen anywhere in the bible that said "thou shall not wear trouser" I think religion has nothing to do with this, It's individual differences that arise.

They are both sins, because it's clear that God wants us to understand that the clothes we - humans - wear can defile us, and the terrible crime of wearing the wrong clothes can condemn you to an eternity of suffering. Think on it, pray on it, don't end up in hell for something so small - from our perspective.

I think the best thng for you to do is to sit her down and about it,ask her why she puts on those those tight fitted mini skirt and soesnt put on trousers,to me its all about the way she feels about it,but let her know that you see no reason why she cannot put on trousers and by the way you should have noticed that she doesn't put on trousers and you should have talked about it but then there is no reason and no big deal about wearing trousers.Cheers.
