Did you ever find Bugs Bunny attractive when he put on a dress and played girl bunny?

Here are 10 Magnets to Men's Eyes, thoughts from Pastor Al Martin of Trinity Baptist Church in Montville, New Jersey.

Not too long ago I shared some information and links regarding modesty in dress, but Dr. Martin here does a nice job in explaining the way men's minds work.* He aims to help Christian women avoid giving their Christian brothers "an occasion of struggling with purity of mind."

10 Magnets to Men's Eyes:
  1. Dresses or skirts with lengthy slips
  2. Dresses or skirts which hug the buttocks
  3. Any upper garment that hugs the breasts
  4. Unbuttoned blouses, low necklines, or cleavage on any upper body garment
  5. Sleeveless blouses or dresses with large armholes
  6. Low-rise skirts, jeans, or pants
  7. See-through garments of any kind
  8. Skirts and dresses that are just plain too short
  9. Slacks or pants or jeans that hug the buttocks, the thighs, and the crotch
  10. A bared midriff and back
Pertinent Quotes:
  • "The purity of your motive does not cancel the effect of you dress."
  • "I'm not a dirty-minded old man trying to rob you of your Christian liberty! I'm a pastor determined that in this place women shall appear modestly to the glory of God and to the good of their precious brothers."
  • For a husband to help his wife by being the "quality control" for his wife in the area of immodest dress, particularly those magnets to men's eyes: "She's not a man! She doesn't think like a man! You can't expect her to think like a man, but you are a man, aren't you?! Well, begin to act like one!"

Counsel to women:
  1. Repent of the ways in which you have unwittingly and carelessly allowed yourself to be sucked in by the world's standards and have caused occasion of stumbling to your brothers.
  2. Then bring forth fruits meet with repentance (i.e., purge your wardrobe).
  3. Pray for and labor to cultivate a sensitive and well instructed conscience before God concerning this issue.
Watch the pertinent portion of the passionate message, or download the entire sermon, "Validating the Gospel in Modesty."
*Disclaimer: I don't believe the obligation for modesty only applies to females and I don't believe modesty only applies to attire and I don't believe males are free from responsibility when they lust.
