In Today’s world , being Fashionable and decent at the same time as a christian could be thought by a non-going church Folk and even religious devotee as almost impossible, worldly, or better put seen as “eating from the forbidden fruit”. Most Spirit-filled Believers who are a fashionista themselves would demur with the world’s Lens of how trendy and stylish they should be,or what should and shouldn’t be worn,as they would normally buy the idea of having a great dress sense, which isn’t totally wrong in its entirety.
One of the most misconstrued Scriptures that inelegant and very simple looking christians use to justify their conscience
1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; will definitely be a pointer to who ever thinks contrary wise to whether this thing fashion matters?
Would I be branded less-spiritual and worldly as a lady if i knew how to mix colours,keep up till date with the latest trend or if i wore an Expensive Monique Lhuillier Beaded Ostrich Feather Gown as a well-heeled working class person?
or as a guy be too materialistic if i become Conscious of what i put on even if it’s to take-a-walk?. Well at the end we all want to look presentable as sons and daughters of the most high don’t we?
Having said that, it will be easier for a person who hasn’t been washed in the blood to be attracted to a well dressed and Flamboyantly looking lady than a christian who isn’t really good at mixing colours.
In all of these,as much as the clothes you wear doesn’t make you to be somebody, it goes a long way to send a message across to every who gives you a stare, like the famous quote
“the way you dress is the way you would be addressed”, as long as its not body revealing or going to be something that people would want to look away in dismay, it would go a long way to build a reputation as one who is always neatly and modestly dressed.
God is stylish! yes! He took time to embellish the world in the time of creation, He owns everything including the Gold, so why would there be a non-concurrence from his children in that regard? after all Jesus was well dressed, They wouldn’t have demanded for his apparel if he they were grungy.
Maybe you are fashion loving yourself or would want to be an aficionado sooner or later, this programme would come handy and
will go on to be a sine qua non for everyone thinks that you can be a christian and at the same time fashionable.
HOW CAN A CHRISTIAN BE FASHIONABLE
Fashion is a sense of style; style is what you are comfortable wearing .A Christian is a follower of Christ, a Christ-like individual. Modesty the keyword where “Christianity meets fashion”, is not to be overlooked. In the Word, we read about God’s children who were clothed in royal apparels like robes and rings to symbolize royalty, not to be thrown out of the window is that we are a “Royal priesthood” also an Holy Nation. God is Royalty, the king of kings and just as models in the world courageously n proudly showcase their master’s designs and artwork, we Christians are to showcase the beauty and majesty of God as we are to dress like “Royalty”. Of course your mind ponders how does one dress like Royalty? A king, queen, prince or princess cannot be found wearing R.A.G.S be it torn, inappropriate, undersized, dirty or worn out. Plus modesty reflects inside out. Joseph, Esther, Joshua, Daniel, the prodigal son (these people were clothed in glorious apparel) God in Joshua’s case commanded an Angel to take away his filthy garment because He could not stand seeing him clothed in rags. Zec 3.
As ambassadors and representatives of God, we show the world what God looks like from our character and appearance.
WHY SHOULD FASHION BE SHOWN ON A CHRISTIAN CHANNEL
The world of today is not too favorable for children. The discipline expected at home is unfortunately no longer there.
A typical scenario, a child goes to school by 7am (GMT +1) comes home by 4pm (GMT +1), and is tuned to the TV. What time does he or she have for admonition or correction?.
For the world, their models are set by the world no longer by parents and scriptures. The scriptures standard for dressing should be adhered to which is dressing sensibly. Parents should try as much as possible to counter the influence from the world and TV.
N/B: BEING A FASHIONABLE CHRISTIAN IS NO CRIME BUT BEING FASHIONABLE WITHOUT CHRIST COULD BE A FREAK SHOW.
Remember Jesus loves you.
Where fashion meets christianity.
