Is Modesty an Issue?

Modesty has been a topic we have been discussing in our house a lot lately. I am convinced that "the world" has no idea that they are running around naked! I am also sad to say, that many Christian's have no idea either. (It reminds me of the story of the Emperior's New Clothes, someone needs to tell them!) My son, Matthew shared the following link with me. I would love for you to post your comments on this issue.

Very good link.I would like to hear the whole message, as this issue is one that seems to be hidden under the banner of "christian liberty". Mr. Piper chose to go the the absolute root of the clothing issue, and that's where you have to begin in order to have a proper understanding.

Thanks for posting and thanks to Matthew for sharing such a thought provoking link!

I think this youtube is a excerpt from the sermon linked here: http://www.desiringgod.org/ResourceLibrary/Sermons/ByDate/2007/1975_Staying_Married_Is_Not_About_Staying_in_Love_Part_2/

The sermon was one in a series of sermons on marriage that Piper preached, which formed the basis of his book, This Momentary Marriage.

Neat clip, Kelly and Matthew! Thanks!

Your illustration about the Emporer's New Clothes is incredibly relevant! It reminds me of a story I read once, which made this analogy in a very enjoyable way. I'll have to dig it out and post it sometime!

Great issue to get us thinking about.



That was a great clip, Kelly, on a relevant subject more people and churches should consider.
How encouraging that your teenage son has the insight to care about this issue.
