“What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
I have a request for all the teenage girls when it comes to dress. Now, I realize dressing provocatively has become very fashionable. I understand that. But you need to understand something: when you dress that way, you’re sending every man and teenage boy this message, “I want to have sex.” Of course, right now you are thinking, “Bryant, that’s ridiculous. I’m not saying I want sex, I’m just being fashionable.” Okay, I agree that may not be what you intend to say, but I am telling you, that is what they are seeing!
Now, you probably think it’s horrible that they think this way. Yes it is. In fact, I will speak for all males and admit to you that we are reprehensible sinners. Unfortunately, it’s the way we’re wired, and the clothing that many of you wear, even innocently, makes it very difficult for all males, especially the teenage ones. Ladies, just like we men can never completely understand how you think on certain issues, you women cannot comprehend how this part of a man’s brain works. It’s not possible. We just don’t need extra fuel on this wildfire, so how about helping us out?
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look fashionable. Just try to dress in such a way that if Jesus were to walk into the room, you wouldn’t be embarrassed, or at least He wouldn’t be!
