MInTheGap presents The Temptations Men Face posted at First Baptist Church of Perryville, saying, “I?m 34 years old and single. Up until I was 26, I shamelessly indulged in lust while I outwardly paraded myself around as an upstanding Christian man. But today, because of the blood of Jesus and deep repentance, I am able to say that I am no longer that man. And the work of God?s grace has not only taught me to deny the ungodliness of lustful thoughts, but to go one step further and truly seek to honor you as sisters in my thoughts.”

What is Modest
Why Dress Modestly?
MInTheGap presents three posts:
The Talk of the Town: You posted at Technology Review Feed – Tech Review Top Stories, saying, “Earlier this year, New York magazine published a long piece called “Say Everything.” Subtitled “Kids, the Internet, and the End of Privacy: The Greatest Generation Gap Since Rock and Roll,” the piece breathlessly revealed that about 60 percent of modern American youth already have their biographical details and images online at MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, or similar social-networking websites.”
Morning Devotions: Modesty posted at Morning Devotions, A Daily Audio Bible Devotional, saying, “At the risk of sounding like an uptight prude, I truly think that, in the church, among believers, there is very little today in the way of modesty. I honestly do not think that a large percentage of the church has any clue about what propriety is. We live in a culture that has been pornified. Women in their underwear sell us burgers, websites, music and cereal. And because the world around us is so completely sleazed-out, many Christian women think that just by wearing some clothes they are taking a stand for modesty.”
Modesty and Aesthetics – “Too Much Skin is Unflattering” posted at Modestly Yours, saying, “My appreciation of modesty is for aesthetic reasons as well as religious ones. People with their exposed skin spilling out of their too-tight clothing look fairly gross to me. It’s distracting, the eye doesn’t know where to land, the body gets broken up into little parts. I prefer a sleeker covered look, to “keep my line,” as it were.”
