Ladies, Can We Talk?

"I desire therefore that in every place men should pray, without anger or quarreling or resentment or doubt [in their minds], lifting up holy hands. Also [I desire] that women should adorn themselves modestly and appropriately and sensibly in seemly apparel, not with [elaborate] hair arrangement or gold or pearls or expensive clothing, But by doing good deeds (deeds in themselves good and for the good and advantage of those contacted by them), as befits women who profess reverential fear for and devotion to God."  ~1 Timothy 2:8-10, AMP

Ladies... woman of God, can we please talk?

Don't get me wrong.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with dressing up and looking nice, BUT, where is the MODESTY in today's church?

Fake nails, fake hair, fake eyelashes, fake butt, fake chest... More bling than power... More makeup than a drag queen...  Fishnet stockings???  REALLY???  For some, the church sees more of your hips and breasts than a KFC employee!  Where is the MODESTY???

So many of "God's women" look like the world.  It's all about a suit and a designer bag.  Why?  What example are we setting for the younger women in the church? We are showing them that it's more important to look good than to DO good.

Can we just be real?  Some of us know good and well that no demon can be cast out... No prayer warfare can go forth, because our clothes are too tight and shoes are too high.  It has really gotten out of hand.

God wants us to be authentic.  How can we know those who labor among us in the realm of the Spirit when no one sees the real you in the natural?

I'm just saying... It's really gotten ridiculous.  Some of us really need to pull that in!  ORDER IN THE CHURCH!!!
