Many of our churches today do nothing about immodesty. Jesus did not die in agony upon Calvary's cross to dress his beloved bride like a harlot. He did not. His enemies stripped him in public to shame him.
Professing Christian women today expose themselves voluntarily, without shame, in skimpy clothing, short skirts, swimwear, low cut tops, obscenely tight clothing and pants.
Yet, the word of God, which is sufficient for all things in life, plainly commands women to adorn themselves in modest apparel because you're the bride of Christ ~ in modest apparel, with shamefacedness, sobriety and self control. Our Savior clothes His bride in righteousness, good works and heart felt modesty. He gives her a heart for purity, not sinful sensuality.
Godly older women can advise young women regarding sexual purity in a way far more appropriate than men can, and by doing this, older women actually help guard and maintain purity in Christ's congregation, and their homes. She is like a wall that helps preserve purity in the body of Christ.
This is from Part 2 of The Sufficiency of Scripture for Women's Ministry: https://ncfic.org/events/view/sufficiency-of-scripture-2009
This is not a nice idea, some illusion, or something unattainable for the Christian woman. This is something we must stand for, require of our daughters growing up, and not falter on under pressure. We are to show forth the purity of the Bride of Christ, and we can not do this while exposing our bodies inappropriately. Some have strayed. We must return to exhibiting purity in this dark world. We are strangers passing through and must be mindful of our heavenly home. Ladies, we must be a light for Christ in how we dress.
