  1. This video reminded me of something my old pastor said: "Modesty is the product of humility." Multiply your humility, apply it to every aspect of your life, and modesty will come because of that. Be humble about your body, do not boast about it, and you will find that the clothes you chose to wear with that mindset will be modest without you even thinking about it.

  2. Ehh. I agree with a lot of this. But at 3:03, you said we shouldn't tell dirty jokes or something like that. So first of all, if you have an audience that will get offended by the joke, don't say it. But if you are with a group of friends that won't get offended by it, and everyone knows it's just a joke and not a real way of thinking, then no. I don't think it's a sin. A lot of rules for sin change when it's for entertainment purposes. If you are just joking around and not being serious, then that is way different then actually being serious and trying to hurt someone. It's like you said. It's about the heart. If my meaning behind something is supposed to be entertaining (and maybe being an entertaining person is glorifying God) and not trying to hurt anyone, then I don't think it's being immodest. Context Matters.

  3. I believe in the 3 principals.
    A.E.R = Attire, Expression, Representation. How you do these things will define your modesty.
    Are you wearing it for God, yourself, or someone else?
    Are you expressing yourself for God, yourself, or someone else?
    I believe that is the meaning behind
    Sirach 19:30
    "A man’s attire, and excessive laughter, and gait, shew what he is."

    I've seen girls who's attire are not boastful and excessive solely based on how they express, and carry themselves. (laughter, gait) In other words, you don't even notice that they're wearing high shorts, simply because their personality and expression shows that they're not wearing it for that purpose.

    I feel there is a happy medium, and I like the way you broke it down Jon, good job and God bless.

  4. True Christians and Daughters of God Almighty and Princesses of the King should be respectful and modest in the way they dress and should be aware of our brothers’ weaknesses and should not tempt them with our wardrobe. Be wise don’t give the Enemy a reason for our brothers to lust over us. If you are mature in your walk, we should be dressing appropriately respectful and modestly all of the times but esp to go to Church.

  5. Since I started following God I do try to be careful about what I wear. Before following God i literally would wear low cut shirts and short skirts because I wanted to look hot!! And that was it. And when I look back on it now, I think wow!! I feel ashamed!! But it really does annoy me that men tell women they need to be careful how they dress because if the man starts lusting over her it's her Fault.

  6. jon i love your channel you explain the bible so well and i have this gift of teaching as well i want to learn how to handal the wor carefully in order to explain it the way it is was meant to be interpreted mate

  7. The Holy Bible, 1 Timothy 1, 2:9 “ ……..also that the women should dress themselves modestly & decently in suitable clothing, not with their hair braided, or with gold, pearls or expensive clothes, but with good works, as is proper for women who profess reverence for God” (unquote) anything else is from lucifer the father of lies. women who do not know to dress should stay at home or go to a pagan place & worship & see if they get away with it!

  8. Thank you for this speech! Too often, I have seen church people who were picky about what they (and others) wore, but showed no discretion and no Christian love in (for example) how they viewed people of other races, other nationalities, etc.

  9. Also, to note from the video us men are supposed to have self control. It’s joke to say women can’t have makeup or nice hair or dress nicely because we can’t control ourselves. Who’s the sinner, the lusting man or the woman who wants to look nice.
