See No EvilThe following scriptures go both ways and apply for the men toward women, and women towards men.

Those that dress immodestly to sexually attract the opposite gender have a sinful and wicked heart.

With the summer coming, when men and women dress more immodest, the below scriptures are good to memorize and to meditate upon. These coupled with prayer and carefulness will be helpful to have victory over unlawful desires.

The temptation through the eyes to unlawfully desire the opposite gender is mostly experienced by the male gender. But the female gender also deals with this temptation, while to a lesser degree.

Therefore, both men and women should be careful to dress modestly so as to not be responsible for inflaming unlawful desires in the opposite gender.

Scriptures concerning unlawful looking at the opposite gender:
Job 31:1 I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?

Psa 101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

Pr 4:25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

Pr 6:24-25 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.

Pr 11:22 As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.

Mat 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

1Ti 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array.

Scriptures concerning having victory over temptations:
Mat 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Luk 8:13, 15 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

2Co 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Php 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

2Th 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.

Jas 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

Heb 2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted.

2Pe 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

Jud 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Thank God, there are still a few plain clothes congregations in the Aylmer area where the flesh is not being flaunted. Pathway Amish, Conservative Mennonite (CMCO and NFC congregations), Holdeman (CGCM), Restoration (COGR), and Charity affiliated (Vienna and Springfield) congregations.

I encourage the leaders of these above congregations to hold the line and not let the plain dress standard go down.
