It's childish to compare apples to oranges and claim one is useless....

Ok, rumour's fly.  Things get twisted. (Duggar family scenario) Adults make false judgments about what is good vs. what is bad in life.  When adults assume that an entire load of apples are bad because they saw one bad orange......something is skewed in judgment.  An entire graduating class of children was aborted simply because the parents assumed no God was watching....and their poverty couldn't be handled.....

Here is the point.  I worked at a nursing home as a CNA.  I saw old guy's do some pretty strange things.  Crooked, unbiblical, fornication types of things.  And if I would have confronted these weird old guys about their continuation in their sin, my job as a CNA would never have been completed for the day because I would sit there and debate all day with them why such sin is wrong!  I was working for pay at that time and not there to hand out gospel tracts as a volunteer.

When adults make assumptions that all apples are bad because they saw one bad orange, they have fooled themselves.  Education for most adults only lasts up to 18 years..... but in reality it needs to last a lifetime!  If we were a child and poorly educated in xyz type of schooling, it is pointless to go back to the oranges and debate that the apples are just as bad.  Rottenness inside one orange doesn't mean that all are rotten...... the orange grower knows that.  The king of the human race knows that.

I went to a college that was 'liberal feminist' in nature.  Women whom I knew in college went on to get seminary degrees.  One such college friend, still appears very 'feminine' in her nature and such without putting out an anger nature towards men.  Other's though, still entirely reject the gospel message, though I am not in a position to help them resolve these issues at this time.

Now, some teachings were slightly skewed in judgment so as to always point out that the bible is always right and men and their minds are always wrong.... or vice versa.  Can I say that a man who has 'no-self-control' will not always go towards the woman who is dressed 'immodestly.'  He will hunt down the 'innocent life.'   The vulnerable life.  The life that is not attractive in outward appearance.

Get the point????

The lack of self-control is a fleshy topic and it is not anything to do with outward appearance.  It has everything to do with his lack of aknowledging the LORDSHIP of Jesus Christ.  The redeemer of souls.....

so should women then give up and go without clothes entirely seeing that men already by nature 'hunt' the innocent life?  Does it matter?  well, put it lightly, it is about one's heart and how that heart meditates.  If one's mind is focused on being connected to a man whom that woman is not married to, modesty is only an act.  However, modesty is a simple way to remind a woman, beware, be on the lookout, if this clothing is in this position at this time, I have greater knowledge in knowing that I should 'flee fornication.'  And to put it clearly, modesty is an expression of culture, no written words are needed to express general human culture.

I have yet to see an entire institution close it's doors because the leader or administrator was a 'bad cook,'  The workers just change position, continue to help those in need and move forward.  No point in letting an entire ship of people sink into the low nature of the bad driver......take one step forward in life.....  We would need to stop driving cars and drive cats instead....to get things 'just right.'

All in all, you cannot know if the inside of your fruit is bad, unless you have wisdom, experience and understanding.  If you do not have these pieces of gold in your hand, it is best not to tell the cattle how to move or tell the apple how to grow on a tree.  Your words are empty and meaningless, infact, such words are annoying at best.
