Re: Thoughts on modesty abroad, in three vignettes

To the pure all things are pure.  "the lamp of the body is the eye..." God help us if we seek to compel women dumb down their feminine genius for the sake of the unconverted and claim they are taking the moral high road.  Jen you are on the mark of true personalism here.  A beautiful woman is an inspiration to men and women alike.  There was a day in the distant past I was inspired otherwise, but the foolishness of youth and inmaturity should not set the standard.  Yes there is value in being sensiteve to the weak, but ones dignity and beauty is and should be proclaimed especially when they know where it comes from and where it can take people: "Let your light so shine that others may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven."  Everybody knows how a beautiful sunset proclaims the glory of God.  Only the unconverted or blind are impervious to such a revelation in a beautiful woman: the hight of Gods creation.   I would challenge any well meaning woman who pulls you aside in the future... How have you been shamed or hurt by the lust of men?

Stay informed
