Pastors Need To Quit Saying This…

A friend of mine posted a segment of a pastor’s sermon where the pastor told the women in his congregation that they are the reason men lust😮


So of course I commented. And said…

There lies a lot of the problem. Preaching wrong things behind the pulpit. Yes, we should dress appropriately for church. But it is NOT a woman’s fault a man is “lusting”. A man with the wrong heart will lust after a women in a dress down to ground with no cleavage showing as well as a women dressed like she it going to a night club afterwards. It is a man’s heart that causes him to lust and no one else!

A church is a safe haven. Women are being fed lies and made to feel unnecessary guilt and shame.

And we wonder why a lot of women do not come forward after being raped. Because everyone points the blame to the women and not the rapist.

Jesus said in Matthew that if anyone looks upon a women to lust after her hath committed adultery.

Jesus never said women be careful to not make men lust.

Any sexual sin is a heart issue.

Yes men are visual but so are woman.

But to blame a woman for a man lusting after her is total wrong!

Granted modesty is an issue.

But if a woman feels modest in a blouse and skirt that goes just above her knee then who are we to tell not to wear it just because some man can’t control his thoughts?

That’s like saying it’s a wife’s duty to have sex with her husband at the drop of a hat just because he feels the urge…WRONG!!

I am sick and tired of pastors preaching BOTH!

You are wrong on both accounts. And you ARE part of the problem within the church.

Just stop it!

  1. I agree with you – mostly.
    Everyone has sin in their hearts. What we do with that is our decision, to act on it or take it to God.
    You said, “Jesus never said women be careful to not make men lust.” And that’s true. But God did say, “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;”
    Women want to look good. Some women think looking good means looking attractive and sexy. That is the sin in their hearts. Many women dress to use the power they have over men. It makes us feel empowered when men look at us in such a way, or if we get more attention when we dress that way. It’s subtle, but women use it, sometimes not realizing they do, sometimes with determined purpose.
    Granted, what men do with their thoughts and eyes and hearts and hands is up to them. But, Luke 17.1, 2 “Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! 2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” Little ones can be children, or can be those who are weak.
    Both sexes can be guilty. I don’t say that women are TO BLAME for men’s eyes and hearts lusting; but we sure could do a lot more to help them out.

    1. Well put Kathy. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and scriptures😊 I agree that some women do dress that way on purpose and it shows.

      But I still feel that a woman no matter their attire will draw looks from a man. Doing a quick look to admire her beauty is one thing. But to gawk at them just solidifies…can’t seem to come up with the right wordage right now.

      Sorry I’m really tired from work and taking my online Bible course quiz earlier

      1. I hope you’re getting good rest. 😴
        I get your point. I will just repeat: Both sexes have sin. And women could do a lot more to help men out, rather than enticing them. 😊
