On the tread, "Pants on a woman are an abomination" I asked," When did men start wearing pants?"
In the Bible didn't many wear robes? Both men and women? I am kind of wondering how we can pick apart the pants issue for women, but when did men where them as a traditional garment?
Are men supposed to be modest also? I am shocked how many big bubbas put themselves into certain sizes of britches that just don't fit If women were to do that with pants or a skirt?? Oh boy that wouldn't be modest, but we are to be modest , men can be repulsive:P
Flowing garment was never stated as a robe, pants, or a skirt. All of those listed could be a flowing garment, and yes modest.
I would just like to know why pants on women is an abomination. Many don't wear them to be a homosexual, or a transvestite. Isn't this why it was stated in Deuteronomy? concerning heathen things that are an abomination?
My question is "Has anyone considered the fact that men haven't always worn pants (as in today's traditional role) and is that any more wrong than a lady wearing a pair of slacks?" Someone brought up the surge of women wearing pants was the 40's. This is true. When in history did men go from robes? to wearing pants?
I am sure this has been hashed out a lot here, but I am sick of the women getting the raw deal here. This is not a issue on whether a church is Biblical or not. You can dresss right and have a bad heart. You can dress like a homeless person and be very right with God. \

When it was noticed that all those fellas running around in short socks was causing others to lust after them.
I sorta went into the same topic, just from the other angle, here: http://www.fundamentalforums.com/showthread.php?t=36172

The problem with your post is that you are comparing apples with oranges. It's a cultural issue... but you are crossing cultures to justify women wearing pants.
In our culture, women typically wear dresses and men wear pants. Trust me, I realize that there are some pants that women wear that are much, much more modest than some of the skirts I see women wearing today... even long one's. So if a woman has a conviction to wear dresses it can't be based solely on the modesty issue.
I believe women should wear dresses (or skirts) based on their desire to keep a distinction of femininity for herself as opposed to more masculine appearance such a pants. This is specific to our culture in our part of the world. If we were living in the Middle East... it would be considered masculine to wear a robe, and feminine to wear a head covering... if I were living in another part of the world it might be considered feminine to wear pants, for instance in Alaska. And that would be perfect acceptable.
I think the issue is not so much modesty as it is a good testimony to the culture you are living in to display yourself in the way that God created you.... not presenting yourself as the opposite gender in any way because that could be perceived as a rebellious attitude.
I don't know about other men, but I objected to the notion that my mother dress me in dresses (she wanted a daughter, but got me) and so from my earliest recollection I wore pants.
You can lead a fool to wisdom, but you can't make him think.
Some have NEVER changed from biblical era cuts. Clothing style is cultural.
Too bad all my kinsmen are such rotten effeminate sinners.
HAHA that was funny Preacher!
TO BA- Good post but, if it is a cultural thing couldn't we say today(our culture) ladies wear pants, and that is ok?
When did men start wearing pants? Do you happen to know? If it basically is all cultural then how can we judge what we wear now? (modesty is already implied, I am talking of clothing and how we dress
