    The Bible tells you to dress modestly. If you don't do it, then that is on you. You do things that are wrong so as to tempt others, and you will be just as guilty. But don't take my word for it. Read the Word of God. Study every Christian article on the topic. Pray about it. Seek the truth and not your own path that sounds good to you because it is easy and convenient.

    With Jason's thinking, maybe one should ban all advertising etc etc etc etc etc with scantily clad women and men on it as it would be to much for people like him to cope with? Not enough will power maybe?

    The Bible tells you to LIVE modestly. Stuff that you consider simple everyday amenities do more to violate that than any amount of immodest dress, dubbed so by completely arbitrary rules.

    If you want to go ultra-Orthodox Jew and mandate 'elbows, knees and collarbones covered at all times', that's your trip. Plenty of the rest of us will go 'lol, u mad?'

    Again, the Bible tells woman to, "dress modestly". Let me say that one more time. Dress modestly. Okay. One more time. Dress modestly. So your whole argument is shot down by these two words in Scripture. You don't like it for whatever the reason; And that is something that you are going to have to deal with one day.

    So your conversation has moved to mocking me?
    This does not help to prove your case in any way but it only helps to hinder it. Please try using the Word of God for a change to prove your case.

    Look, this is the real world we live in buddy. U cannot tell others how to dress! The Bible tells people what it expects but God knows us, He made us! He knows our minds.

    If you cannot cope with boobs showing then look away! You dont have to look! You need not be tempted! You can be strong!

    No. The Bible says,

    "I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes," (1 Timothy 2:9 NIV).

    I provided Scripture that trumps your flawed reasoning. Either you accept the Scriptures or you go on with your own thoughts (Which are flawed).

    In other words, modesty has to do with luxury, not skin acreage revealed. Glad we agree.

    Often what creates the allure is what is concealed rather than what is revealed. I'll give two examples. Consider an ankle length dress with a slit up the side to the thigh versus a modest one piece bathing suit. The latter shows far more leg than the former and yet it is the former which is more provocative. Next, consider a beach scene with a woman wearing a skimpy bikini top that just barely covers versus a beach where the women go completely topless. Once again the former is considered provocative while in the latter case it is just "ho hum".

    On a lighter note. About 25 years ago the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that it is illegal to impose a law on women that is not imposed on men. The result is that a woman may go topless in a public venue. I should also note that in those same 25 years I have not had a single sighting! So, in the United States they have the right to bear arms while in Canada we have the right to bare breasts. I know where I'd rather live.

    Why ask such a senseless question?

    1) Do you (and Jason above) insist on your wives covering in church?

    2) How on earth would you even know if a woman is wearing panties? Do you lot get offended at what you can't see now?

    But a moment ago, didn't you say you could drive a BMW? You can dress modestly and yet drive in something that is not modest? Okay.

    Anyways, lets look at the verse again.

    "I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes" (1 Timothy 2:9).​

    Now, if your father or pastor told you to dress with decency and you came out with no bra in a see thru dress that also showed off your cleavage, what do you think their reaction would be?

    I'll just have to take your word on it. This thread is offensive to my intellect.

    The bra is a non-issue. The real issue is that woman should dress with decency (whether they wear a bra or not). Meaning, women should dress in such a way so as to not to tempt other men. Are you against that idea?
