Excerpts from a love letter to the women of the church, from The Apostle.
Apparently, COG men have been unable to control themselves.
What I am going to say applies only to a few. Women in God’s Church are different from those of the world. But a very few need severe correction.
I do not mean that even these few go to the extremes of ridiculous fashion so commonly seen in the world. You won’t see any member of God’s Church wearing artificially striped hair, green eyelids, and a purple mouth, decked out in outlandish dress design and overdone wacky jewellery. But, in the category of too short and too tight skirts, and in excessively low-neck dresses, some of you women and girls need a sharp rebuke from God’s ministers!
In both colleges-Pasadena, Bricket Wood, England,- I personally teach a class in Principles of Living. This class includes God’s instruction in regard to SEX and marriage. Sex responses operate in the mind, and the male mind does not react in the same manner as the female mind in relation to sex. Sex consciousness, and arousal, in the male, is brought about much more quickly than in the female, and is stimulated by sight, or even by imagination, in a manner that has little effect on females.
God made the female body to be attractive to the male. This attraction may be, and should be, one of sheer beauty. But also it may be, and under many circumstances often is, a stimulation of LUST. Especially when certain parts of the female figure are emphasized, such as the hips and buttocks by tight skirts, the low neckline exposing portions of breasts, or too-short skirts exposing more than is modest of the female leg.
