Singleness in Evangelicalism

kneeling

by Samantha Field from her blog Defeating the Dragons There was one day in graduate school when I got home from work, went on a very long walk, then I hid in my room, cried, and ate Sam’s Choice vanilla ice cream while I watched Sense and Sensibility. I’m not exactly sure why I felt the need to do that on that day, but the feeling of just being done with singlehood got a little overwhelming. I was lonely, and I just wanted it to be over with. I wanted to be in a relationship. I wanted to be happy. I was only twenty-four years old. Up until that point, I’d had marriage pushed on me pretty heavily– if you’ve been a Christian in America for any length of time, you’ve probably experienced that … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Wear a Sack

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 201—202We’re in Debi’s chapter on being “chaste,” and not surprisingly, we’re discussing modesty. I actually found this passage really interesting myself, because there are several times when Debi departs from the conventional evangelical script—though not in good ways.A chaste woman is a modest woman. God speaks of a woman maintaining her chastity and purity by the clothes she wears. “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godlines … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Modesty Was ‘God’s Idea’?

immodest

by Tony Reinke in John Piper's blog Desiring God - Is Feminine Modesty About Sex?Men and women serve each other here. A godly Christian man refuses to treat women as objects of lust, humanizes them, and shows respect to his sisters in Christ as fellow heirs (Romans 8:17). A Christian woman, modestly dressed, serves her brothers in Christ, honors her husband (1 Peter 3:1–6), and removes an unnecessary obstruction from her testimony of personal godliness in society and the church (1 Timothy 2:8–15). Whether or not men are also called to a standard of modesty in fashion is a relatively new conversation in the church, and one we need to think through together in the future. But what we do kn … [Read more...]

Christian Reconstruction, ATI, Abuse, and Submisson: Modesty and Lust Part 7

texasmess

by SJ Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink FlamingoThis is the response to the comment I submitted, dealing with the article about censoring cowboy culture.  Stephanus Blignaut is a missionary in South Africa.  In my family, we have a very soft spot for missionaries, especially those in Africa.  During the late 1940s my  uncle and his wife were missionaries to Sudan.  His oldest son was born there.  As long as he lived, my uncle always had a special love for Africa and the people.  He came to believe, though, that simply telling people about Christ was useless, unless you first gave them food, medicine, clean water, and a safe place to live.  Once their needs were met, then they c … [Read more...]

Christian Reconstruction, ATI, Abuse and Submission: Modesty and Lust Part 4

stripeddresses

by SJ Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink Flamingo “…When I think about my clothing choices in college it simultaneously convicts me of immodesty and helps me understand the struggle girls face trying to be modest. I wasn’t trying to be inappropriate. I just wanted to look good. I was single. I wanted to be attractive to girls and I wanted to be affirmed by other guys. For me to be modest I would have needed to wear looser shirts that I didn’t think looked as good on me. That would have been tough. And making that tough decision would have made me much more appreciative and considerate of my sisters in Christ….” … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Protecting Sons?

Boy in Front of Girl

Blogger Bunker Down has written an excellent rant about modesty - How the modesty police are hurting my son If you want your daughter (and hopefully son) to dress modestly because you want them to value their intrinsic self over their outer self?  Fabulous.  If you want your daughter (and hopefully son) to dress modestly to create healthy attitudes toward sexuality?  Great.  If you want your daughter (and hopefully son) to dress modestly to glorify the Creator of all things?  Boo-ya.  If you want your daughter (and hopefully son) to dress modestly because it is a long standing tradition of your church/synagogue/people/culture/or group?  Awesome possum. … [Read more...]
