The Lost Virtue of Modesty

Posted: November 12, 2014 by abestratton in Articles, Culture, Parents, Resources

In this strong and challenging article, pastor Kevin DeYoung presents 5 biblical arguments for pursuing modesty. I’ve listed the key points below, but I would urge you to take 5 minutes to read the whole thing.
1. Modesty protects what is intimate.
2. Modesty accepts that our bodies also live in community.
3. Modesty operates with the Bible’s negative assessment of public nudity post-Fall.
4. Modesty embraces the strong biblical admonition to refrain from sensuality.
5. Modesty demonstrates to others that we have more important things to offer than good looks and sex appeal.
