There is a lot to say on the topic of the way Christian women clothe themselves, but before I get into the whys, shoulds, and should nots, I want to relate what I have seen lately. This weekend I had the chance to observe the attendees of the Passion Conference 2015. It’s a sort of rally for Evangelical Christians aged 18-25. It should be noted that while Passion Conference is age-segregated, the organizers have the sexes mixed together. The schedule had them shuffling between buildings, and as they processed from one to another I counted women in yoga pants, leggings, or jeggings; versus any other kind of lower-body clothing. Over 80% of the women attending Passion Conference 2015 wore skin-tight pants. Some additional observations:
- If there was a dress-code for the event, then it is reasonable to assume that revealing clothes for women were preferred by the organizers. 80% is a target; not a mishap.
- There were no exercise courses in the Passion Conference schedule.
- These were 18 to 25 year olds “worshipping” side-by-side with men aged 18 to 25.
- I saw no men in Under Armor shirts, open shirts, baggy-pants, or any sort of clothing which one would call immodest.
For the record: I was not part of the conference; just near it.
