  4. 4. "Many of these professed Christians dress, talk and act like the world, and the only thing by which they may be known, is their profession. Though they profess to be looking for Christ, their conversation is not in heaven, but on worldly things." {SD 352.3}
  5. 5. "High heels became a global ticker of sex appeal that lasts through at the present time." ~All About Women's Stilettos!

  13. 13. “Fashion is deteriorating the intellect and eating out the spirituality of our people. Obedience to fashion is pervading our Seventh-day Adventist churches and is doing more than any other power to separate our people from God.” {4T 647.2}
  14. 14. The line of demarcation between those who serve God and those who serve Him not, is ever to remain distinct. The difference between believers and unbelievers should be as great as the difference between light and darkness. When God's people take the position that they are the temple of the Holy Ghost, Christ Himself abiding within, they will so clearly reveal Him in spirit, words, and actions, that there will be an unmistakable distinction between them and Satan's followers. Notebook Leaflets, p 79 (Selected Messages, book 3, p 211)
  15. 15. Effect of Dress on Morals The love of dress endangers the morals and makes woman the opposite of the Christian lady, characterized by modesty and sobriety. Showy, extravagant dress too often encourages lust in the heart of the wearer and awakens base passions in the heart of the beholder. God sees that the ruin of the character is frequently preceded by the indulgence of pride and vanity in dress.... He sees that the costly apparel stifles the desire to do good.
  16. 16. Counsel for the women of God's church: "Do not, my sisters, trifle longer with your own souls and with God. I HAVE BEEN SHOWN that the main cause of your backsliding is your love of dress. This leads to the neglect of grave responsibilities, and you find yourselves with scarcely a spark of the love of God in your hearts. Without delay renounce the CAUSE of your backsliding, because it is sin against your own soul and against God. Be not hardened by the deceitfulness of sin." {CH 603.1}
  17. 17. WHATSOEVER YE DO, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
  18. 18. Satan's work is to lead men to ignore God, to so engross and absorb the mind that God will not be in their thoughts.....Satan does not wish the people to have a knowledge of God; and if he can.....confuse the senses of the young that human beings will perish in darkness while light shines all about them, he is well pleased. {RH, March 13, 1900 par. 5}
  19. 19. Not a few of our people are backsliding. They are imitating the fashions of the world. Their spirituality is dying. Step by step they are approaching world-loving. Selfishness and pride are taking possession of them, and the love of God finds little room in their hearts. Some who were once zealous reformers are now indifferent. Sisters who were once plain in dress are now conforming to fashion. God expects his commandmentkeeping people to be distinct from worldlings, but in many instances the line of demarcation is hardly discernible.
  20. 20. As I have seen those of our faith becoming worldly, my heart has been saddened. Some of those who profess to believe that they have the last message of mercy to give to the world, follow the fashions as far as they think their profession of faith will allow them to do. And their influence leads others astray. Their lack of Christlikeness is apparent to all. The Lord is dishonored by their conformity to the fashions of this degenerate age. Outward display is contradictory to our profession of faith. I entreat my sisters to guard against the tendency to dress in accordance with the demands of fashion.
  21. 21. Many of the mother’s burdens are the result of her effort to keep pace with the fashions of the day. Terrible is the effect of these fashions on the physical, mental, and moral health. Lacking the courage to stand firm for the right, women allow the current of popular feeling to draw them on in its wake. Much precious time is devoted to needless stitching and ruffling, to add to the outward adorning. Children are robbed of the time that should be devoted to gaining for them the beauty of holiness,—the inward adorning, which, in the sight of God, is of great price.
  22. 22. In order to follow fashion, many of our youth incur expenses that are out of proportion to their condition in life. Children of poor parents endeavor to dress as do those who are wealthy. Parents tax their purses and their God-given time and strength in making and remodeling clothing to satisfy their children’s vanity. If our sisters who have an abundance of means would regulate their expenditures by their responsibility to God, as wise stewards of the means entrusted to them; their example would do much to stay this evil now existing among us. Souls whom they might have helped by letting their light shine in good works, are strengthened in unbelief by their inconsistent course.
  23. 23. Mothers can not be slaves to fashion and at the same time exert a sanctifying influence in the home. Too often professedly Christian mothers sacrifice principle to their desire to follow the multitude who make fashion their god. Conscience protests, but they are not brave enough to take a decided stand against the wrong.
  24. 24. More bad news for high heel wearers: new 3D scans show exactly how much damage they inflict on your feet. http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/marie-claire/fashion/news/article/-/18573676/3d-scans-revealhow-damaging-high-heels-are/
  25. 25. Just when you thought it was safe to wear high heels, new research has revealed the extent of the damage they can inflict on unsuspecting wearers. RELATED: High Heels Aren't The Cause Of Bunions A series of 3D scans released this week show that the “foot deformity” caused by wearing high heels is actually much more complicated than first thought. It’s the first time doctors have been able to properly investigate exactly how the foot behaves when contorted into a pair of high heels – and unfortunately, the news isn’t good. "With high heels, the toes are squashed inside the shoe,” said Andy Goldberg, a foot and ankle specialist. “The more stiletto-shaped they are, the worse it is. The toes not only get squashed, but they become clawed too." http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/marie-claire/fashion/news/article/-/18573676/3d-scans-revealhow-damaging-high-heels-are/

  27. 27. RELATED: Models Reveal Toll Of Fashion Week Circuit "The scanner gives us much more information"' he said. “We can see that the base of the big toe becomes 'deviated outwards', forming a bunion, while the scanner also shows how these bones can become rotated and dropped.” Despite the disappointing news, Goldberg thinks it’s unlikely many diehard high heel fans will take the results seriously. RELATED: Designer Debuts Backward High Heels "People don't like doctors saying, 'Your shoes are a problem,'" he said. "If I suggest they buy themselves some comfy shoes, I'm liable to get punched in the face.” http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/marie-claire/fashion/news/article/-/18573676/3d-scans-reveal-how-damaging-high-heels-
  28. 28. Many of our sisters willingly bear the unnecessary burden of conformity to worldly dress. Attempting to follow the fashions, their burdens are greatly increased, yet they willingly bear the yoke, because they worship the goddess of fashion.
  29. 29. It is not only the privilege, but the duty of every one to increase daily in the knowledge of God and the truth. Satan’s object is gained if he can invent something that will so attract the mind that God will be forgotten, and he uses fashion with great success to do this. He knows that women who constantly have a feverish desire to follow the fashions, have benumbed their moral sensibilities, and do not realize their real spiritual condition. Worldly minded, they are without God, without hope. They take no time to pray, or to search the Scriptures in order that they may understand the truth, and teach it to their children.
  30. 30. When I have seen Christian women leading out in temperance campaigns, presenting to liquor inebriates a pledge to abstain from all intoxicating drinks, I have thought that it would also be well for them to present to every Christian woman a pledge to abstain from all needless display and extravagance in dress. By dressing simply, thus saving time and means, Christian women can do much to help the temperance cause. The means thus saved will clothe the destitute, feed the hungry, and will help to close the door against liquor drinking. Those who are simple in dress have time to visit the afflicted, and to pray with and for them. On all Christians rests a solemn duty to economize, that they may be better able to help those in need.
  31. 31. We do not discourage neatness in dress. Correct taste is not to be despised nor condemned. Our faith, if carried out, will lead us to be so plain in dress, and zealous of good works, that we shall be marked as peculiar. But when we lose taste for order and neatness in dress, we virtually leave the truth; for the truth never degrades, but elevates. When believers are neglectful of their dress, and are coarse and rough in their manners, their influence hurts the truth. “We are,” said the inspired apostle, “made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.” All heaven is marking the daily influence that the professed followers of Christ exert upon the world. My sisters, your dress is telling either in favor of Christ and the sacred truth or in favor of the world. Which is it? Remember that we must all answer to God for the influence we exert.
  32. 32. Simplicity of dress will make a sensible woman appear to the best advantage. We judge of a person’s character by the style of dress worn. A modest, godly woman will dress modestly. A refined taste, a cultivated mind, will be revealed in the choice of a simple, appropriate attire. The young women who break away from the slavery of fashion will be ornaments to society. The one who is simple and unpretending in her dress and in her manners shows that she understands that a true woman is characterized by moral worth. How charming, how interesting, is simplicity in dress, which in comeliness can be compared with the flowers of the field.
  33. 33. When women wear high heels, it promotes a sensation of feeling sexy, powerful, independent and not needing a man. Does this sound godly? It corrupts the true beauty of how God created women to be; modest, chaste, keepers at home, faithful to their husbands. It encourages the worst passions in a woman. Please pray about the matter and be honest with yourself.
  34. 34. Many need instruction as to how they should appear in the assembly for worship on the Sabbath. They are not to enter the presence of God in the common clothing worn during the week. All should have a special Sabbath suit, to be worn when attending service in God's house. While we should not conform to worldly fashions, we are not to be indifferent in regard to our outward appearance. We are to be neat and trim, though without adornment. The children of God should be pure within and
  35. 35. Flat, sensible, comfortable, practical shoes are fine that do not cost a fortune. For men if their shoes are extravagant to show off then that too would be unfitting for godly conduct and they should also follow the same guideline of comfortable, most and sensible and practical. They must not bring God's character into shame by extravagance or trying to be sexy.
  36. 36. Are you worshipping the goddess? And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, HOW LONG HALT YE BETWEEN TWO OPINIONS? IF THE LORD BE GOD, FOLLOW HIM: BUT IF BAAL, THEN FOLLOW HIM. And the people answered him not a word.1 Kings 18:21
