We were at a week long conference with the Pearls years ago. Michael Pearl told us he never goes to beaches, malls, movies, and has never looked at pornography. He takes this command very seriously. I admire that!
Most Christian women wear bikinis and think nothing about it. They say that if a man lusts after them, it is their problem. Some will say I am legalistic in my views about this. An honest, hot-blooded, heterosexual male will tell you that women in bikinis turn them on...They love seeing women in bikinis. God built them that way.
When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden and saw they were naked, they covered themselves with fig leaves. God covered them with coats.
Yes, in some countries women aren't allowed to show their ankles, blah, blah, blah...That is no excuse for Christian women, here in America, to show everything but their privates and think it is okay...
I wore bikinis when I was in high school but I never felt very comfortable in them. I felt kinda naked...ashamed. Now I see that was the Spirit's convicting me.
Men don't "fall" into sin...They walk into it. This is why God's tells them to FLEE sexual immorality. If you go to a beach and there are women in thongs and bikinis...FLEE! If you go to a movie and there are sexual scenes...FLEE! Don't play with burning coals or you will be burned...
Stop compromising...If you want true joy and peace in your life, start walking in obedience and live to please the Lord. Teach your sons at an early age to flee sexual immorality. Teach your daughters to dress modestly and how a man's mind works. Look and act different than the world. Be radical in your faith!
Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.I Corinthians 6:18
Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned? Proverbs 6:27
