Liberal Christians today are a very deceived bunch of people. They claim to go by the name of Christ but live like the rest of the world. A classic example is the popular saying “God doesn’t look on the outside but at the heart”. Agreed that this is what the LORD told Samuel when choosing David as a king:
“But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.” (1Sam 16:7)
So taking this Scripture ref. in to account, men and women who call themselves Christians find the liberty to cover themselves in tattoos, piercings and clothes that exhibit all the feminine curves. Don’t even dare tell them that their sense of fashion is an abomination to God; you will be attacked with the verse quoted above. In fact, they will tell you that immoral fashion it is not distracting anyone from worshiping God. There are even worship leaders that dress like Hollywood celebrities. In that case, the Apostle Paul made an unforgivable blunder when he commanded women to dress modestly.
Even men lie when saying that a women’s suggestive clothing doesn’t stop him from focusing on God – yeah right! Are you really not distracted when a liberal Christian girl is dressed in tight mini-skirt jumping in front of you during a worship session? (These worship sessions are mostly music worship instead of God worship, but that’s another topic.)
And girls, as if you don’t know that you are causing men (who you call your brothers in Christ) to sin?
Anyhow, coming down to what God is saying in the verse quoted above, notice that He is referring to the physical structure of a man (or a woman). “Countenance” and “height of the structure” refer to the attributes with which the person is born. People judge others based on these attributes: short men, black people, ugly nose, no curves etc. The physical characteristics, which you can’t do anything about, is what the LORD is referring to. No one is born with tattoos, low-cut tops or piercings. (If you had tattoos before you came to the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, you are pardoned. However, it is those who know His grace yet go on to look like the heathens.)
There are portions in the book of Psalms and Proverbs that say that a woman who leads a man astray with her words is an adulteress. However, women don’t need to speak words in order to lead men to stray; she simply has to show off her curves and/or skin. You could cover all your skin by wearing a tight outfit, it will still display your curves. It is a proven fact that men naturally tend to respect women that dress modestly and carry themselves with dignity and self-worth rather than items of lust. And trust me girls, real men prefer a properly dressed woman.
As to the argument that God looks at the heart: your thoughts, your sense of fashion, your words, you habits — they all display what’s in your heart, and what God is actually looking at. What’s on the inside shows on the outside. If you revered and feared the absolutely holy and righteous God, you would think a 100 times before dressing like a celebrity or heading to the tattoo parlor.
