Way of the world 

 

If you dress immodestly, it shows that you've forgotten why you're on earth.  You are a soldier.  Second Corinthians 10:4 says, "We use God's mighty weapons, not mere worldly weapons, to knock down the Devil's strongholds."  You're in a war for the souls of others.  The Bible warns about becoming like the world.  James 4:4 says, "You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God?  Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God."  If dressing immodestly isn't becoming friends with the world, nothing is. 

 

Exposing what God wants covered shows that you're more of this world than you admit.  It takes courage to choose a different path than the godless culture around you.  And God expects you to choose the path of modesty.
