A Christian Woman And Her Clothes
Here at yvonnechase.com, I usually write about relationships between men and women. Today, I’m taking a break from that to write about the relationship between a woman and her clothes; more specifically, a Christian woman and her clothes. This post is about Meagan Good and what she wore to the recent BET Awards. What she wore was a hot topic on Twitter because Meagan Good recently married a preacher and came out of the closet as a Christian. Prior to Devon, I never knew or heard Meagan was a Christian and I’m sure I’m not the only one. Once they became engaged, the non-stop talk about her Christian faith ensued and never stopped. The big deal around their nuptials was the fact that they waited until their wedding night to consummate their union.
Outfit Was Distasteful
Tonight on Twitter, one of my followers said, “I don’t know anything about her salvation but her outfit was distasteful. I’d have to tell her if I knew her.” I agree! I’d have to say something too. Totally inappropriate! Just because you can wear it, doesn’t mean you should. Meagan has said in interviews that Christian women can be sexy and she wants to be the spokesperson for those women. In a 2012 interview with CP Entertainment she said, women can be sexy in a classy way…there is a way to do it, there is a classy way to do everything and there is nothing wrong with being sexy or having sex appeal and I think that I am definitely going to be someone who is boldly going to go out to the masses and be someone who says, ‘ Look! Women its okay to do this, that and the other,'” I don’t like [how] sometimes people who are religious will try and force everyone into a box and judge them. God gave us these body parts not to go and show everything to everyone but it’s okay to be sexy and to be comfortable with your sexuality. I think there’s kind of a line that gets blurred and I’m very bold about speaking out about it.
Frumpy and Dowdy
We live in a world that says if you got it flaunt it however, I believe a different rule applies to those of us that boldly profess Christianity. We are to be excellent examples for those around us in every area of our lives including the way we dress which means, if every woman is walking around half naked, we need to cover up. That doesn’t mean we have to walk around looking frumpy and dowdy. We can be hot and holy without showing our mammary glands to the world.
Something to think about…
What say you? Is Meagan being sexy in a classy way? Should we be okay with her dress if her husband is okay with it? Should Devon have let her wear that dress? Is her dress too sexy for a Christian woman? Men, would you be okay with your wife in that dress? Talk to me…
