Do women slacks stink to God ?


“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” [Deuteronomy 22:5]

“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery’: “but I say unto you, ‘That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” [Matthew 5:27-28]

“And you get these little old, sissified men today with a shock of hair cut down low on his neck like that, and a pair of sideburns like Elvis Presley, and stand up and make all this boogie-woogie stuff, and you Christians try to impersonate an impostor like that. Right. Right. Go along with a little old pair of clothes on, looks like some sissy, and a woman out there with a pair of man's trousers on. Do you know the Bible said that's abomination in the sight of God? Certainly is. You know that's the truth. That's exactly the truth.” [The Lamb And The Dove, Oakland, CA 57-0325]

“Do you know, ladies, that it's wrong to wear slacks? Do you know that? Do you know it's wrong to cut the locks of your hair off? Do you know it's wrong, mister, for you to continue to smoke and act the way you do? Do you know It's wrong for you not to be the husband of your house, your wife get a little temper spell and kick you out the door, and you say, "Yes, bless your heart, honey, I'll come right back"? Do you know you... How can you be a tender at the house of God when you can't even control your own house? That's exactly right. Do you know, sister, that your husband is not only your husband, but he is your ruler? God said so. Because that the husband was not deceived, the woman was deceived. And you preachers will continue to make women pastors and preachers in your churches, knowing that the Word of God condemns it.” [Adoption 3, Jeffersonville, IN 60-0522m]

“Our mama used to give it to the kids, I think. Some kind of catnip when they got the tummy ache. The church has got more than a tummy ache; it's anemia. What we need is a blood transfusion, the power of the Holy Spirit to clean up the church world from the life of sin. women, men, professing Christianity, out to dances, out to big worldly parties, gambling, smoking, dancing; women cutting off their hair, wearing shorts, slacks, all kinds of stuff like that, and then call themselves Christians. There's a weakness somewhere; it isn't in the power of God. It's either in your pulpit, or in you, one. Now, that's all there is to it. It's the truth. We need a cleaning up. The carnal, always enmity! Oh, sure, it's a hard fight. But I believe if you been ordained to Eternal Life, "All the Father has given to Me, will come to Me." [Hearing, Receiving And Acting, Chautauqua, OH 60-0607]

“Take a girl out of rock-and-roll, let her come into this fellowship, she'll clean herself up right quick. She let that hair grow out and put on a nice decent dress, take them old shorts and slacks off, and she's different. Said, "What happened to that woman?" [Fellowship, Middletown, OH 60-0611b]

“The Holy Spirit says it's wrong for our women to cut their hair, and it's wrong for our women to wear little shorts and slacks and to make up their lips and face with paint; the Holy Spirit says it's wrong. But we want men to tell us that it's all right.” [The Rejected King, Jeffersonville, IN 60-0515m]

“I think any women ought to be clean; she ought to look her best; any man ought to too, look pretty and clean, but be decent. You know if you dress yourself just in that old clothes that people wear, them old shorts and... woman said to me some time ago, said, "Brother Branham, I don't wear them shorts," said, "I wear slacks." I said, "That's worse, worse." You know what God said? "It's an abomination in the sight of God for a woman to put on a garment that pertains to a man." And God is God and never changes; He's the infinite God. If it once made a sickening stink and smell before Him, it still makes a sickening, stinking smell to see a woman put on a garment pertains to a man.” [The Rejected King, Chautauqua, OH 60-0610]

“It's a disgrace! Certainly is. And with little old clothes on, like, you know, the slacks, they call them. When, the Bible said, "A woman that puts on a garment pertains to a man, it's an abomination in the sight of God." Oh, the whole thing must be a stink before God. And how can your heart look upon that, and not be concerned? When, you see your own nation, your own people, human beings shaking in the torment, going into hell, and you can't do nothing about it. Let me scream as long as I got a voice to scream. I don't care what anybody says. There's right and wrong. I want on the right side when I stand before God. I want to stand.” [Convinced Then Concerned, Tempe, AZ 62-0118]

“You women that claim you've got the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and not the audacity to let your hair grow out; when the Bible condemns it and said a woman's... a man has got a right to put away his wife in divorce if she bobs her hair. Honored before God, to do so. The Bible said, if she cuts her hair, she dishonors her head. And it's a common; just, you know, what any old common thing is, for a woman to even pray with bobbed hair. See? Wearing shorts, and these slacks, and things! The Bible said, "Any woman that will," (oh, you say...) "that put on a garment that pertains to a man, it's an abomination to God," filthy, dirty, like an old stinking bathroom somewhere. See? Oh, my! The filth in God's nostrils! And then you try to pray or offer up prayers in such a thing as that? God refuses it, turns it away. That's right.” [Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed, Jeffersonville, IN 63-0728]

“And the women were wearing slacks, and little children around them, were just with overalls on, and so forth, coveralls. And I wondered what it was, and finally we found out. They had had a--a Santa Claus parade. There had been many thousands had been watching it on the streets, and so forth. And we just had an awful time getting through Memphis, because it's coming Christmas time.” [The World Is Again Falling Apart, Shreveport, LA 63-1127]

“A few weeks ago I went down in like... I don't know what the name of the place is down there, in New York now, they just got city blocks of beatniks. How, them girls down there with--with leotards on and--and nothing up over them, they wore a bikini (as they call it) over the top of that. And, oh, just the conglom-... they do anything that's in their mind. No matter what it is, that's what... why they're beatnik. They can just do anything. If they want to lay down and don't get up, they just lay down and don't get up. If they want to go do a certain thing, they do it; if they don't, they don't. Just mind just traveling! And what does the unconverted mind come to? You have no right to do that, 'cause you're not your own; you're bought by Deity, Jesus Christ, the Son of God that was made flesh. But, see, the conglomeration of sin!” [God's Gifts Always Find Their Places, Jeffersonville, IN 63-1222]

“No more than see the young man out here, fine, big, fine-built fellow with his hair, what he curl it up like the women do, and leotards on, and a big long sweater hanging down, and purple shoes on. Masculine? Oh, my, what a horrible thing to call a man! What a thing to call a man! That's right. See some woman, supposed to be daintish and lovely, come out with a pair of man's trousers on, a cigarette in her mouth, and bobbed hair. What a thing to call a woman! Jesus called Mary, "woman." Shouldn't even be called that; just a female.” [Shalom, Phoenix, AZ 64-0119]

“Reminds me of a woman, said, "Well, Brother Branham," another one said, "I--I--I don't wear those shorts." Said, "I wear slacks." I said, "That's worse." Uh! "God said, 'It's an abomination,' in His sight, 'for a woman to put on a garment pertains to a man.'" That's exactly right. One said, "Well, they don't make any other clothes." "They still make sewing machines and have goods." There is no excuse. It's just what's in the heart. That's what shows out. It--it identifies itself.” [Spiritual Amnesia, Birmingham, AL 64-0411]

“She was called a dog. That's the lowest can be gotten, or was to them in that day, an unclean animal. Course, today it's an idol; but there a woman will take a little old dog and give it a mother's care, and practice birth control, 'cause she wants to get out to dances and parties, and carry on like that, and she ain't got time for her child. She know you can root the dog off in a little cage somewhere, take it with her. That's exactly right, see. Practice birth control, and then go to church and sing in the choir; wear shorts, slacks, everything else, and call herself a Christian; bob off her hair and still say she is in fellowship with God, when the Bible said she is not. That's exactly right.” [Perseverant, Topeka, KS 64-0619]

“I think that England would be sunk someday beneath the ocean. It deserves it; filth, dirt, puny! That's the immoral cesspool of the world, the most dis-scriptural, denying people I ever seen in my life. She is become that because she's rejected the Truth. Billy Graham said he had to take his wife out of the parks; sexual things going on between men and women, boys and girls, right out in the park, openly. She become a cesspool; so has France, so has all the rest of the world. And so has the United States, becoming the leader of all of them! Look at today. Make them cut their hair, wear shorts, slacks, smoke, and calling themselves believers. Don't you realize, sister, or woman... Mean, pardon, not my sister; do a thing like that. Don't you realize it's the devil?” [Recognizing Your Day And Its Message, Jeffersonville, IN 64-0726m]

“Brother Branham, is it all right for a--a young child to wear slacks and shorts?” How young? Just let you be the judge of that; if you're a Christian. A little girl or any little bitty kid, I imagine, I don't know, I... Only thing I know, the Bible says it's an abomination for a woman to wear a garment that's--that pertains to a man. See? "A woman," didn't say, "a child." But now, I just... You just suit yourself about that, I... For my part, I see nothing wrong with a little bitty kid, little bitty girl four or five years old with a... When they're little fellows, you know how I mean, they'll run around out there in the yard. If she's wearing, what you call slacks or whatever, is a little bitty kid, I--I don't see nothing wrong with it. Maybe...See, I'm just telling you what the Word says. It's an abomination for a woman to wear a garment that pertains to a man.” [Questions And Answers, Jeffersonville, IN 64-0823e]

“I went into a place yesterday, when, oh, some of the perverted gang come in. They, the men had hair in their eyes, come down and hung down on their back, and like leotards, like little kids wear to school, with great big old shoes on, mouth half open. You can tell they were delinquents. And walked in there like that, say, "We're French." Who in the world would hire a man like that in his business? How do they make a living? And I seen a couple of real boys sitting over there... They come from that university down there, this beatniks did, or I believe they call themself bugs or beatles, or something like that, some of that stuff coming from England. And then in there like that, who would hire a man like that to work for him? Would you put a man like that in your business, you businessmen? If you would, you're, there is something, you ain't got close enough to the Cross yet.” [Doors In Door, Flagstaff, AZ 65-0206]

“You who once walked along with a great big cigar in your mouth, and everything, or a bunch of cigarettes; and you women who once had short hair, painted, and carried on, and wore shorts, and things like that; all at once, Something screamed, and you looked down here and It was the Word. See, It quickened your... You said, "No more shorts for me, no more liquor for me, no more lying, no more stealing, no more this, that." See? The Spirit that raised Him from the dead, dwelling in you, will also bring your mortal bodies, the dust of the earth, into subjection. You see? What is it? Subjection to what? Christ. Who is Christ? The Word. Not the theology, but the Word! Then you say, that, "These things, oh, I think it's all right for women to wear slacks." When, the Word said, "No." See, It quickens you to That. See? You are drawed to It. See, it's you, then. It becomes... You become part of the Word.” [It Is The Rising Of The Sun, Jeffersonville, IN 65-0418m]
