Mothers Watch How Your Daughters Dress :

"By clear and necessary implication, Christ here also forbade the using of any other of our senses and members to stir up lust. If ensnaring looks be reprehensible, then so much more unclean conversation and wanton dalliances, which are the fuel of this hellish fire. Again, if lustful looking be so grievous a sin, then those who dress and expose themselves with desires to be looked at and lusted after-as Jezebel, who painted her face, tired her head, and looked out of the window (2 Kings 9:30)-are not less, but even more guilty. In this matter it is only too often the case that men sin, but women tempt them so to do. How great, then, must be the guilt of the great majority of the modern misses who deliberately seek to arouse the sexual passions of our young men. And how much greater still is the guilt of most of their mothers for allowing them to become lascivious temptresses."

~A.W. Pink (Sermon on the Mount; The Law and Adultery: Matthew 5:27-32)

Where do I start? One of the things that makes me so heavy-hearted about the modern church (thinking of the one(s) I used to attend), is the issue of how worldly dress is rife amongst Christians. I once commented to my old vicar about 1) the appropriateness of 14 year old girls wearing mini-skirts & high-heals for their confirmation, 2)a troupe of (admittedly marginally) underclad teenage girls performing a 'worship dance' during a service, 3) baptism parties being scantily clad according to the local fashion(!), usually at "christenings"/infant baptisms of unbelieving families (C of E!) - None of my concerns were taken seriously.

I recently perused the facebook page of a lay reader (preacher) in a local "evangelical"
Anglican church. There were photos of him in clerical robes, and on his "likes" page he had a link to what could only be described as a soft porn page; I refrain from describing further! What hope for the edification of the young who need guidance, when a leader (late 50s-60) does this?? What to do?
