Pledge To Bring Christian Women

Back To Decency In Dress

Purpose:  It is no accident that the terrible immoral trend in our nation and the world at large should coincide with shameless fashions in dress.  The women of any nation help determine its morals.  So it is to the (professing) Christian women that this pledge is directed.  Most Christian women cannot be discerned from the worldly unbelievers in their style of dress.

"In like manner I wish women to be decently dressed, adorning themselves with modesty and dignity." (1 Tim. 2:9) A true Christian, as St. Paul admonishes, will not indulge in any freedom if he causes his brother to sin. Well might we say, "If any unseemly dress fashions lead men to sin, I will not dress so."


Realizing that you simply cannot promote modesty without standards, I pledge to do my part in restoring a true Christian example by adopting the following dress code:

  1. I pledge to wear dress or skirts that extend well below the knees in any posture. My dresses will not be sleeveless or have low necklines.
  2. I pledge not to wear trousers, slacks, or shorts as this apparel is not pleasing to God: "A woman shall not be clothed with man's apparel neither shall a man use woman's apparel: for he that doeth these things is abominable before God." (Deut. 22:5)

I will keep this pledge with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ regardless of the spirit of the times.
