I did not write this article, but I am grateful for the pastor who did. I believe it will be helpful for godly women. The Bible emphasizes the modesty of women & thus the emphasis of this article is directed towards women. But the sad fact is that our society has devolved to such levels that even men show off their bodies. So this article should be read by men as well. All Christians are held to the biblical standards of “modesty, propriety & moderation.” We don’t hear those words often in our day, so if you need to Google their definition, have at it;-)
I’m sure that some people feel that such an article shouldn’t be written by a man. But I would like to defend the author by pointing to the example of the Apostles Paul and Peter. In 1 Tim. 2:9-10 and 1 Peter 3:3-5 both Apostles, by the Spirit of God, were not shy about addressing the apparel and adornments of women. And though some might call it unfair that the author didn’t also address how men adorn themselves, I must note that that neither Peter nor Paul felt compelled to address men on this point.
Others might feel the author is blaming Bathsheba for David’s sin. I disagree; I believe he means that David had his sin and Bathsheba had hers. Whatever might have been the situation in David and Bathsheba’s case, I believe the author’s point is that men have their responsibility and women have theirs. I believe this is a valid point.
Lastly. I have been in Asia for close to 2 decades now. So my sensibilities are a bit different than Americans. The mention of body parts makes me blush. But I believe the author mentions such details so that reader will know exactly what he is referring to. He is not being crude in my opinion; he is being clear.
