Modesty and the Bible
Photo: Katie Waybill
Tired of listening to your parents harp on you about immodest dress? Guess what? The Bible has something to say about it, too, and it’s not just about your clothes! The same Greek word kosmios, is used to talk about dress, behavior, worship, and the place where you live.

Just like the rest of Christianity, modesty isn’t pick-and-choose. It’s a package, a whole-life deal. Check out these verses: 1 Timothy 2:9, 10, 10; 1 Peter 3:3; 1 Timothy 3:2; and Matthew 5:28.


Like it or not, the way you dress and behave influences other people either for good or bad—for eternity. How would you rate your influence?

Now, if you’re truly a Christian, you believe what the Bible says is truth, right? And if you don’t follow what the Bible teaches, it’s sin, right? So what are you going to do now?
