Shoes or Torture Devices? You Decide! (kdc)

The choices of many ladies tonight were eye-catching, though many of them looked like they were wearing elaborate devices of torture instead of shoes. (Ladies, don't try this at home!)

  1. I love those shoes.... but I would kill myself if I were to wear them.

  2. Must have cute toes to wear shoes like that. Otherwise, don't bother.

  3. I had the challenge of buying my daughter shoes for YC. My YC days are over, but I remember the aching feet. So we settled on a pair of flats to walk around in that can fit in her big bag. Then she can put on the 'torture devices' when she gets where she's going! Thank God for the platforms...it looks painful, but actually is more comfortable b/c the foot is not on a ridiculous angle. This from a caring mother. haha

  4. I was there...but I was one of the ones wearing flats!My problem is that the bible tells us not to concern ourselves with things of the world...fancy shoes are worldly right? I'm just saying...I was quite proud of many of the girls there, but on the other hand I was very disgusted by some as well. Where are the youth leaders???

  5. I am in my late 20's and I was one of the more conservative, but classy dressed and I have to say i was disappointed in the lack of modesty and holiness among the women and some of the ''mens'' styles. What really shocked me was random men I asked about the issue stated the same. Too much skin is not in! I will also say I wear ''fancy shoes'' and I am now a fan of flip-flops after church! =)

  6. Can someone explain in some more detail what they saw as immodest? What I saw was dresses down to the knees (or longer), sleeves at modest lengths (mid-arm or below) & long uncut hair on most (not all) girls. Guys seemed to be adequately covered casual & dressy. But maybe this was my corner of the arena.

    (I'm also taking into consideration that out of up to 17,000 teens, there will always be a percentage that aren't living for God.)

  7. There is no difference in wearing "fancy shoes" or fancy headbands/watches. Just saying.
    It's okay to be fashionable and live for God...I'm glad that we are getting out of the mindset that Godly = frumpy. How are you going to convince someone they should be like us when all the girls look frumpy and don't care about their appearance?

    PS- The bible also tells us not to braid or adorn our hair and I'm sure pretty much every girl is guilty of that. Everything in context folks!

  10. The shoe issue alone...those pictures you have posted...if you look at who and where the people in the world wear them, you wouldn't be caught dead in them (I hope)! Are you young people planning to dance on a pole or dance for Jesus? You say, the skirts are down to the knee and sleeves to the elbow...did you ever consider the fit of those skirts..how tight...or the shirt, how sheer and tight? A young lady from my state (who no longer lives here) was interpreting for the deaf at a youth camp...on the platform...for ALL to see, in a white skirt that was so tight it left nothing to the imagination. She was an on fire young lady, but made me and several others literally blush because of her immodesty in the skirt that was well below the knee. It's not so much the clothing, as it's interpretation...what does the world see when you walk into a public place looking the way you do? More importantly, what does Jesus see? Yes, it's fun to dress up...but there must be a limit to how close we get to the world's fashion...just because it's below the knee doesn't mean that it's modest!
    Apostolic Moms and Lady Youth Leaders - it's time to address this...see not how close we can get to the world, but how close to HIS holiness we can get.
