Thrashing The Word ‘Sexy’ Out of The Church

It is quite obvious that we are living in a sex-crazed world. Even our churches are becoming sex-crazed too, it is very pathetic! Most Christian ladies nowadays prefer to be called ‘sexy’ rather than beautiful, modest, intelligent, or virtuous. I often watch with dismay how our Christian sisters get elated when guys tag their Facebook photos with the word ‘sexy’.
What does the word ‘sexy’ mean? Well, the last time I checked it means:
“provoking or intended to provoke sexual interest, or feeling sexual interest; aroused” – World English Dictionary.

Dear ladies, when a guy says you’re sexy, what he actually means is that “your appearance is provoking or inviting and makes him want to have sex with you.” As a Christian sister, I don’t think this is something you should be elated about. A Christian must never be happy if his/her appearance ignites a sexual desire in another person who is not his or her spouse. This is why we must watch the dresses we wear and ensure that we are not exposing things that must not be exposed.

While we have no control what others think of us, we do have control over which compliments we endorse. In some cases, the compliment ‘sexy’ does not match our appearance and therefore it is our duty not to endorse or even be thrilled by it.

With all these being said, it must be mentioned here that being sexy itself is not wrong. Sex was created to be enjoyed within the confines of marriage. Any sexual act outside marriage is a sin (see 1 Corinthians 6:18). I stand to be corrected, but I honestly don’t think there is anything wrong with a husband telling his wife she look sexy. God in His wisdom had assigned time and season to everything on earth. Obviously there is a time to look sexy and a time not to look sexy. The time to look sexy is if you are married and it must only be for your spouse and not the outside world. There is also a time to have sex and a time not to have sex. The time to have sex is when you are married and it must be only and only with your spouse. The Bible is quite clear on this; Hebrews 13:4 says:
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

1 Thessalonians 4:3 says:
For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication.

And 1 Corinthians 6:18-20 says:
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Dear ladies, you are not sexy you are beautiful; the value is not the same. Know your worth and let no one look down on you. You have been fearfully and wonderfully created and chosen to show forth the glory of a great and might God. You are a Princess, the cherished daughter of the King of kings and Lord of lords – the Lord Jesus Christ. So accept nothing less!

Christians are supposed to change the world, but it seems the world is rather changing us. It is time for us to wake up and take our place. Let the brothers from now on learn to give edifying compliments about the ladies, and let the ladies also resolve to dress decently.
