Welcome back to the Christian Teen Forums. We have been upgrading our forum software and it took a lot longer than originally anticipated. Thank you for your patience.
We are still working to bring some add-on features back, so it will be a continued work-in-progress. If you have any questions, feel free to post and ask away.
Daniels replied to Michi's topic in God, Church & FaithI ONCE WENT TO A PENTECOSTAL CHURCH AND I HEARD THAT THE PASTOR SAID THAT GIRLS WHO WEAR PANTS WILL GO TO HELL AND THIS SHOCKED ME. MY OPINION ON THIS IS THAT YOU NEED TO BE VERY WISE IN THE SENSE ON WHAT YOU WEAR CAUSE REMEMBER OUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD. TAKE FOR EXAMPLE IS YOU WERE TO WEAR SHORT PANTS LIKE WHAT GIRLS ARE WEARING NOW OF DAYS IF SOME WERE TO SEE YOU THEY WOULD NOT THINK OF YOU AS A CHRISTIAN RATHER SOMEONE OF THE WORLD. WEARING PANTS IS NOT WRONG BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD AND THE WAY YOU CARRY OUT YOURSELF DRESS OR LIFESTYLE DEFINES YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. I DON'T BELIEVE THE BIBLE SPECIFICALLY TALKS ABOUT GIRLS CANT WEAR PANTS BUT HE MADE IT VERY CLEAR SAYING OUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF CHRIST. HOPE THIS HELPED
Like how we humans desire the love of someone else I believe that God is the same way. Take for instance the lord allowed for lucifer to have his own will along with the fallen angels making them choose either to be with god or against, the same applies for us he wants us to love him willingly. So God created humans so that he proves that there are those that will love him to matter what in a sense i believe that this is to prove that he doesn't force anyone to love him but accepts anyone that repents truly from their sins. If you find an answer in scripture please be sure to post it as i would love to study it.
