QUESTION:

Do Women Wearing Slacks Cause Adultery?

ANSWER:

“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]

“Some of you ladies now, to your young girls around in teenage, eighteen, twenty years old, letting them run out here dressed like she is... And you too, mama... See? When you go out and wear those slacks and things and live, and get on the street, and--and have those old clothes that's so naked nowadays, and make you look like something that you're not... See? And you go out there on the street all sexually looking, you might be just as innocent and pure before your husband and everything, but if you go out on the street and a man looks upon you because you presented yourself like that, you're guilty, and going to answer at the day of judgment for committing adultery with every man that looked at you like that. That's what the Bible said. The Bible said, "Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery with her in his heart already," and you're guilty and will...” [Questions And Answers On Hebrews, Jeffersonville, IN 57-1006]

“Pentecostal Christian women out on the street with slacks on, do you know, lady, that the Bible said, "That a woman that'll put on any garment that pertains to a man, it's an abomination"? And little old clothes on and shorts... And you get out in the yard just when the men are coming home from work. Do you realize that's devil possession? Listen, lady, you wear these little old dirty clothes that they sell in these stores, sexy looking. You might be as pure as a lily to your husband. But if you dress like that, and get on the street, and a sinner looks at you, you are guilty of committing adultery with that sinner. And at the judgment bar you'll answer for it. Jesus Christ the blessed Son of the living God said, "Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her, hath committed adultery with her in his heart. "When that sinner answers for committing adultery, you are the one he committed it with. Why, you say, "That's his fault." It's your fault for presenting yourself like that. Oh, you say, "But, Brother Branham, they don't sell no other kind of clothes but them." Well, they still sell sewing machines and goods. I know that's old fashion, but it's what the world needs today. God hates sin, but He loves the sinner. People just can't take it. That's all.” [Thy Loving Kindness, Chattanooga, TN 58-0228]

“You Pentecostal women wouldn't let your girls put on them little old vulgar-looking clothes and get out on the street. Then talk about juvenile delinquency. Not only do they do it, but mammy, you do too. "Oh," you say, "I don't wear them shorts,” I believe that call it, “and halter-necks. I--I--I don't wear them. I wear slacks." The Bible said that a woman that'll put on a garment that pertains to a man, it's an abomination in the sight of God. That's what the Bible says. And today, you take women come down the street with these little old skirts on, that's so tight, and so sexy dressed, and call themselves Christians. Don't act up like the--the King of Heaven's daughter, not conducting yourself. And look, let me tell you something, sister; and I'm only saying this for your good. When the judgment comes, you're going to answer for committing adultery.” [Life, Everett, MA 58-0512]

“I said to a lady the other day. She said, "I tell you I don't wear them little shorts." Said, "I wear slacks." I said, "That's worse." Right. Yes, it is. The Bible said it's an abomination for a woman to put on a garment that pertains to a man. That's filthiness. Yes. Some woman said they don't make any more clothes... They still make sewing machines and you can buy goods. There's no excuse. What you need is the baptism of the Holy Ghost.  The style they start is mockery. Amen. You think I'm beside myself, but I'm not. I know right where I am. That's right. Dress like that and get on the street. You may be as virtuous to your husband as you can be, You might be as virtuous a daughter to your sweetheart as you could be, but at the day of the judgment you'll answer for adultery. You'll be guilty of committing adultery. Jesus said, "Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her in his heart already." You presented yourself that was and the sinner looked at you. When he answers for adultery, who's guilty? You, for presenting yourself like that. Amen.” [Conferences, Bloomington, IL 61-0410]

“You Canadian women don't do this, but I'm going to say this for what is in America. The American women get so every year they take off a few more clothes. Just to get down to... The first short dresses, now to little bitty things that looks like men's clothes, and things to wear. It's a disgrace. It's a shame. It's a... It's--it's... A woman said to me, she said, "Brother Branham, I don't wear shorts." She said, "I wear slacks." I said, "That's worse. The Bible said it's an abomination for a woman to put on a garment that pertains to a man." That's right. And I said, "You should never do that." Said, "Well, they don't... When you go to the store you can't buy nothing else than them sexy-like clothes." I said, "Someday you'll answer at the judgment bar for committing adultery. You might be as pure as a lily to your husband. You might be as pure as a lily to your boyfriend. But the Bible said, Jesus said, "Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her in his heart." And I said, "If you put yourself out there and dress like that, and the sinner looks at you and lusts after you, who's guilty, you or the sinner? And he's going to answer for that, and who did he commit the adultery with? You. Who's guilty? You, for presenting yourself like that." And I said, "You'll be guilty of committing adultery when that sinner has to answer for committing adultery. ‘Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her.’ Who's guilty? You. That's right. This lady said, wrote me a letter, she said, "Mr. Branham, they don't make clothes like you're talking about. This is the only kind." I said, "But they still have goods, and they sell sewing machines; so there's no excuse about it.” See? That's right.” [A Greater Than Solomon Is Here, Grande Prairie, AB 61-0515]

 

“A woman said to me some time ago, she said... I was telling them about wearing them immoral clothes. I said, "God will make you answer for committing adultery." She said, "I'm... do not commit adultery." I said, "But Jesus said, 'Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery with her in his heart.' Then when that sinner answers for adultery, who did he commit it with? Because you presented yourself that way." That's right. You'll answer at the day of the judgment. It's exactly. And she said, "Well, I'll just tell you right now." She said, "I don't wear shorts. I--I--I wear slacks." I said, "That's worse. The Bible said it's an abomination in the sight of God for a woman to put on a garment that pertains to a man." God doesn't change. That's exactly right.” [From That Time, Dawson Creek, BC 61-0520]

“The Bible said, "It's a dishonorable thing for a woman to cut her hair." She does it, she dishonors her head. She dishonors the angel, the angel of Light. The Seven Church angels, the one bringing the Light will stay with the Word. Dishonorable! She ought to have hair on her head. My, such! And it used to be wrong for them to do it. In--in first Pentecost, it was wrong. What happened? You did run well, what happened? And some of our Pentecostal women dress in them dresses that look like a skin over a wiener, out here somewhere trying... That's right! I'm not saying that for no joke. This is no place for joking. This is the pulpit. Some woman said to me one night. I told them how they was dressing. Said, she said, "I don't wear shorts. I--I--I wear slacks." I said, "That's worse than ever. God said, 'A woman that will put on a garment pertains to a man, is an abomination in the sight of God.'" Right! And let me tell you something, lady, you, young woman, that dresses yourself out there, you're going to answer at the day of judgment for committing adultery.” [Jehovah-Jireh 1, Grass Valley, CA 62-0705]

“Let me tell you something, sister. You might be as pure as a lily, to your husband or your boyfriend, but in the Day of the Judgment you're going to answer for committing adultery. Jesus said, "Whosoever looketh upon a woman, to lust after her, hath committed adultery with her already." If that sinner looked upon you, and she has to answer at the Day of Judgment. You presented yourself to him. Suit yourself. Uh-huh. Why would a godly woman want to dress like that for? Then you claim to have the Holy Ghost because you spoke in tongues and run up-and-down the floor? That, though, I seen heathens do that, Hottentots. The Holy Ghost is purity, holy, undefiled. Certainly.” [The Voice Of The Sign, Denham Springs, LA 64-0321e]

“Can't you feel the Holy Spirit screaming out from you? "Oh, United States and the world, how oft I would have gathered you, but you would not. Now your hour has come. Your god of pleasure, your god of filth, your Sodom and Gomorrah god, has come among you." Even our little kids, Beatle haircuts and bangs across their faces, and little perverts starting out. Our women is gone. It's beyond redemption. Our men has become big sissies, walking around with little, short pants on, and acting like a girl, and hair hanging down their necks. And we are Sodomites, and the fire and the wrath of God waits for us. You know how He'll kill, how He'll destroy it? The way He always did. When a prostitute did anything wrong, she was stoned to death; they picked up stones to kill the woman that was a prostitute. That's how He'll kill the church. The Bible said He'll rain hailstones out of the heavens, that'll weigh a hundred pounds apiece, and He'll stone them. Who is going to stop Him? What science is going to say it can't be done? He'll do it. The same as He made a ark and floated Noah to safety, He'll do it again for His Church. And by His Own laws and His Own way, He'll stone that prostitute who has committed adultery with the kings and captains of hundreds and thousands. He'll stone her to death, by His Own laws that He set in order. Who is going to tell Him He can't make a hailstone?” [Trying To Do God A Service Without Being The Will Of God, Jeffersonville, IN 65-0718m]

“But if she's got bobbed hair, wearing makeup, shorts, pants, looks like man's, all these slacks and ever what they call them; saying those kind of things, and doing those things, and living for the world, she'll stop; she can't get through There. No, sir. It'll stop her at the beginning. A man looking at her pretty red lips and painted face, and shorts and--and bikinis, and ever what she's got; a real thinking man won't look at her. Now, a man that's a church member will look at her, admire her. But I don't care how she looks to the eye, a thinking man will turn his head. Why? He's been through God's Filter, and he knows to look upon her is adultery in his heart. He don't think she's pretty. Say, "Isn't she a pretty thing!" Not to him it isn't. She's a filthy-looking, miserable Jezebel wretch, to a thinking man. A son of God looks upon her with shame that he even belongs to the family she belongs to. That's right. "How could that be my sister and act like that?" See, she pulled through one filter, and he come through another. He won't think she's pretty, not at all. That's not beauty to a real man of God.” [A Thinking Man's Filter, Jeffersonville, IN 65-0822e]

“Live for Him, keeping ourselves from the world. Now look. You look on television, some of you sisters, and you go down here and you want, you young women. You're young. I know that. But you're Christians. See? You're different. You don't want to be like the world. You love the world. It's not only you young ones; some of you older ones. See? Well, what does that? See? You watch television, you go down to the store, you see these little old clothes that women wear, that's ungodly. Do you know what's going to happen at the Day of Judgment? You might be just as virtuous to your husband as you can be, but in the Day of Judgment you're going to have to answer for committing adultery. Jesus said, "Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart." Who is to blame? You. See? You presented yourself, them shorts and slacks. Some women said to me, not long ago, said, "I don't wear shorts, Brother Branham. I thank the Lord for that. I wear slacks." I said, "That's worse." That's worse. That’s right.” [Things That Are To Be, Rialto, CA 65-1205]
