Christian Modesty

Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

1Timothy 2:9 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;

Verse 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. (Emphasis added.)

The definition for modest in Webster’s Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary is: Observing the proprieties of dress and behavior. Synonyms given are: PURE, DECENT, and CHASTE. CHASTE primarily implies a refraining from acts or even thoughts or desires that are not virginal or not sanctioned by marriage vows; it may imply avoidance of anything that cheapens or debases; PURE differs from CHASTE in implying innocence and absence of temptation rather than control of one’s impulses and actions; MODEST and DECENT apply especially to deportment and dress as outward signs of inward chastity or purity.
