by Lori Alexander from Always Learning – Men Are to Blame for Everything
Editor’s note: I am curious why at a point in the year when most of us are contemplating putting away summer clothes for warm clothing and sweaters plus copious amounts of pumpkin spice Lori Alexander decides to do multiple pieces for her blog on immodest dressing. We usually only see this level of blaming and shaming at the beginning of beach season in the CPM, not after it has ended and everyone has started the seasonal march back to layers of clothing.
According to many people today, men are to blame for everything! When women wear skimpy bikinis with their entire bottoms showing and most of their breasts causing men to lust after them, it is entirely the man’s fault according to many women and teaching young women to be modest and discreet (not drawing attention to themselves) is shaming women. They tell me that men need to be taught to respect women, regardless of how women dress or act.
These people are in La La land and have made up their own rules which are foolishness. In the Bible, God usually puts nakedness and shame together. Once sin entered into the world, Adam and Eve felt shame and tried to cover themselves up with leaves but God covered them up with a coat. He knew men would lust after the nakedness of any woman they saw and that women would try to dress provocatively in order to cause men to lust after them. All of this is in His Word and this is why He commands women to be modest and discreet and Jesus speaks about the sin of men lusting (Matthew 5:28).
Are men the only ones at fault when they lust after a woman dressed immodestly? No, they are both at fault. She is held responsible, however, for causing another to stumble. Women are not innocent.
