"Excess and sensuality -- both of these bear on modesty...If
[Christian women] are modest, they will not draw attention to themselves
in the wrong way. Their dress will not say 'SEX!' or 'PRIDE!' or
'MONEY!' but 'purity,' 'humility,' and 'moderation.'"
"Christian modesty is the inner self-government, rooted in a
proper understanding of one's self before God, which outwardly displays
itself in humility and purity from a genuine love for Jesus Christ,
rather than in self- glorification or self-advertisement. Christian
modesty then will not publicly expose itself in sinful nakedness."
"Please note: this is NOT an argument for a return to the mode
of dress worn in Biblical times. The examples cited only suggest the
purpose and function of clothing and the approximate area of the body
that clothes were designed to cover."
