Modesty...Honestly? - Part 2

This is another excerpt from Modesty Matters by Pam Hardy (read the entire manuscript here)

The great old Puritan preacher Richard Baxter said this, “You must not lay a stumbling block in their way nor blow up the fire of their lust. You must walk among sinful persons as you would with a candle among straw or gunpowder. Or else you may see the flame which you did not foresee when it is too late to quench it.” (A Christian Directory in Baxter’s Practical Works Vol. 1)

If there is anything in your dress that is sensual or suggestive you are inviting the men around you to go some where in their imaginations where they should not go. The sad reality today is that many times a man doesn’t even have to use that much imagination, because so much is already revealed.

guilty as charged... I'll try to tone it down a little... my problem is that Elton John is selling much of his clothing and it's so hard to say no.
