Why women believers should not wear trousers- Gloria Bamiloye

By Oluwafemi Dosu

The wife of Mount Zion President and co-founder of Mount Zion Faith Ministries, Gloria Bamiloye has added her voice to the trending issue in Christendom about female putting on trousers or not.

According to statistics, many are of the opinion that female should not wear trouser because its against the scripture while some say it doesn’t matter, adding that God judge the heart.

In this write up, Gloria Bamiloye seriously dealt with the over flogged issue.

Read her answers:

Answer:
Deuteronomy 22:5 KJVS
[5] 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.

The scripture does not specify the clothes for the man and the one for the woman from this verse. And so it depends on what each country, nations, Tribe accepts as the cloth for the man or for woman
For example in our country Nigeria ,there are so many tribes and tongues not to talk about the world. This scripture therefore does not specify but the Lord expect us to now walk with our initiatives on how a child of God should dress based on where he or she comes from.

In the western world, Men and women wear trousers. Women have her own special way of sewing their trousers and the same with men.

In Africa, we have some who wear trousers while majority don’t.

Now coming down to our country, in yoruba land, culturally, ladies don’t wear trousers while men wear. In some parts of Nigeria, in some tribes, men tie wrapper like women
Because of these varieties in tribes and culture all over the world it is difficult to say this is how somebody should dress. In Scotland for example, men wear skirt like women.

1 Corinthians 8:9 KJVS
[9] But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to them that are weak.

Even though we have liberty to put on whatever we feel like wearing, we must not become stumbling block for others who are weak. That is to say according to Paul if ordinary eating of meat will cause your brother to stumble away from faith, phe said he will not eat meat again

1 Corinthians 8:11-13 KJVS
[11] And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
[12] But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ
[13] Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.

Jesus did not come to the world to die for himself. He came for you and me. He denied himself of his glory coming to the world and working around touching lives. He became poor so we can be rich. He did everything for the souls of men.
My brethren, if we are saved, it is not only for you. You are saved to rise up for others. So you are not to be concerned about only your comfort . Think about others who are looking up to you. Wearing of trousers or not is not actually the issue because many born again sisters are wearing other things more terrible than trousers because according to them, they love to be comfortable.

There are some terrible trousers people wear these days that reveal all the shape and contour of their bodies same with very tight and mini skirts.
Where is the love of God in us if our intention is to cause others to fall?
You may not know but that is the target of the enemy.

We were coming from outside the country some times ago, and at the airport I saw a married lady with her child and husband following. She wore a very tight pair of jeans trousers which exposed her in a very seductive way . It was too tight that it is difficult to explain. Such a lady is married, but to her she just wanted to wear something she loved to wear, without considering the impact on others. That is not love.

A Christian has liberty in Christ, but the Word of God cautions us to be careful how we use this Liberty. So we won’t make somebody to stumble away from faith.
There so many young converts who are not so strong in faith like you are. If you allow any of them to fall out of faith because of your comfort, God will not take it lightly with you.

Mark 9:42 KJV
[42] And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

A sister was telling me why she decided not wear trousers again. She and her friend went for evangelism her friend wore trousers and blouse while she wore a dress. She used to wear trousers too due to the nature of her work. So many times she is in trousers even when she is not in her place of work. She is so much used to wearing trousers. Fortunately for her that day she didn’t put on trousers and so they were out for evangelism.

They now met a man and started preaching to him. She said the man was just looking at her friend who wore trouser without paying attention to what they were saying . When he could no longer stand it he called this sister and told her to please tell her friend that wore trousers to excuse them. The man said he could not imagine somebody like her preaching to him. That was how the friend left them and the man now told the sister to continue the massage, that he can now listen. This incidence affected the sister that when she got back home. She gave out all her trousers. There is nothing bad in wearing trousers especially when it necessary like in some profession, activities and so on. And everybody will understand.

The most important thing for you to know as a child of God is that you are not living for yourself only, but for the Lord and the people you will reach for Christ. If the holy spirit is actually living in you, you will be concerned how you treat your body to glorify God.

If such sisters were to be in the western world, nobody would read any meaning to it because they see nothing special in you wearing trousers since it is part of their life style. But it means different thing to a lot of people in Africa.
It is not spiritually wise to bring their ways of life here. It may hinder the move of God. We therefore need to listen to our spirits on how to dress. That body belongs to God and everything God would do in this world is through that body. We therefore need to treat our body with the wisdom of God so we won’t hinder His move.

Another female minister of God was invited to a woman program. As she was dressing up to go for the program, she heard it deep down in her from the Holy Spirit to remove her earring because she uses them. She was so confused because she has never been condemned on that before.

Anyway to have peace she had to obey her spirit. She removed it and went for the program. She was welcomed and led straight to the altar to minister. She said as she told the women “let Us pray” and all the women closed their eyes, The Holy Spirit told her to wait, open her eyes and look at all the women seated. So she paused and opened her eyes to look at all the women in the hall. She discovered that none of them wore earrings. Then the Lord told her, If she had come here with her earnings, she would not be allowed to preach because there they don’t use it at all.
She was shocked and because of that she chose not to put it on again.

What am I saying therefore is that if you are a child of God, there will be sacrifices in carrying your cross to follow the Lord however little. But many believers are not ready to sacrifice anything, and for such, you don’t expect God to use you beyond your church.

If you want God to trust you with great works, you must be ready to sacrifice your comfort at times for God to have his way in your life. There are things he may ask you to drop even though they are not sinful, but for Him to move unhindered, You may need to do so and every obedience like that will lead to promotion.

So in anything we do let us know that we are not only living for ourselves but for God and souls. Do not be a stumbling blocking to others in what ever you allow in your life ,be it in your dressing ,or in any other areas of your life . That is how to walk in love. Listen to the HolySpirit because he lives in you and be ready to obey him because God is more concerned with souls of men hence he said

Mark 9:42 KJV
[42] And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

May God give us understanding as we follow Him in Jesus name a

  1. Finally this message came out of one of strong minds in our world. I hope our evangelical drama ministers will humble themselves and sacrifice their desire for the sake of the Gospel of Christ.

    Even, you are convinced or you claim to be so strong in faith to wear trousers as an acclaimed born again sister, the divine assignments in your hands asks you to appear acceptable to all men.

    Till tomorrow, not all Christians will accept trousers from ladies, if you like twist the Bible in your defense as Bible scholars

    Sisters should accept that fact that it is not acceptable especially Nigeria specifically in Yoruba race.

    Be disciplined enough to appear acceptable to all men as evangelist

    May God help us in Jesus name

  2. Hmmm, to be honest some ladies look elegant in specially designed trousers eg bankers on TROUSERS and this will equally preach the gospel anyway because its descent. However, most women put on trousers to cause the fall of men.

    Thank you for a wonderful insight into the cultural relativity as well as the sacrificial lives we are called to live. I hope God will touch Our sisters heart to turn back to him in this area.

  3. Devil has been a deceiver from d genesis of the creation, twisting d scripture for d children of God to cause confusion. I have seen a case of a young vibrant lady who married a man that later forced her to be wearing trousers she had nailed to d cross years back. There are many forbidden fruits which children of God these days are eating comfortably. Many God open our spiritual eyes.

  4. I so much thank God for hearing this message from our Mummy in the Lord. I can say this is a clear and unbiased inspiration from the Lord Jesus Christ! I am equally based in Western world, very close to the Redeemed Church Mum is associated with in Grand Prairie, Texas. Mum has always proved herself ever more faithful with this teaching and I can categorically say this message is a divine one fom God. In conclusion, without mincing words, I hope our sisters will stop using excuses of wearing trousers all in d name of being right for their gender. I only pray most of our African Female Pastors in the United States will be able to sacrifice their comfort zones because of the weak ones, all in the name of being in a Western World!

  5. God has given us his word for us to obey which will then put the best of the land into our hand. God bless you ma for this inspiration, we are to live for God and to edify others.

  6. Please Ma With All Due Respect Ma Stop Twisting The Bible To Satisfy The Flesh. "there is nothing bad in wearing trousers especially if its necessary in some profesions" If Someone Is A Child Of God, God Will Not Give Him/Her Something (A Job) That Will Make Him/Her To Go Against His Commandment. And As For The Western World Its Not Their Culture Be Wearing Trousers Cos According To Their Old Pictures We Do See We See How They Use To Dress(Turtle Neck Long Sleef Top With A Wide Ankle Length Skirt) Its The Devil That Has Blindfolded Them. And Remember The Bible SaysTHE WICKED SHALL BE TURNED INTO HELL AND THE NATIONS THAT FORGET GOD So The Fact That 95% Or 99% Of The Western World Wear Trousers Does Not Mean God Will Lower His Standard I Pray The Lord Will Open Our Eyes The More In Jesus Name

  7. In addition, i believe the motive behind wearing what you wear matters to God. For instance, There are some exceptionally cold countries. If you dont wear at least 4 jackets and 4 trousers you might be writing letter to your death. This way, you have to wear trouser to keep warm. In sommer, the weather is comparable to the weather in Africa and you do not have to wear trouser to survive. Additionally, from my research on google on the history of trousers, I discovered that it was worn by either men or women in those days who ride horses to battles. Ofcourse, more men went to battle than women, hence it used to be tagged as men.
    Trouser was invented by a man for the purpose of easy movement and climbing horses when going to battle in those days. Robes used to be the norm for men and women before the invention of trousers. So the purpose for inventing trouser is not so as to be a man's wear. It was to fit the two legs of humans and allow access to free movent while climbing on a horse and fighting on a battle field. The society turned it into what it is today and demonic fashion corrupted it. There are Godly fashions. I am a gifted fashion designer. And as a fashion designer, i make my designs on purpose. The purpose for which the wear is needed. Humans need to dress on purpose too. They need to dress up based on the purpose for which the dressing is needed and not on an unrighteous purpose.

  8. It is your opinion. The speaker has not twisted the scripture. She has only hit the nail on the head. The word of the Cross is foolishness unto those that perish but to the saved, it is life, it is power. Truth they say is bitter

  9. No matter how civilized the world may turn out to be, God will never reduce His standards for any reason. His words are YES and AMEN! !

    More of God's insight upon your life ma in Jesus name. Not every civilized and exposed woman of God can preach this so undilutedly. More grace ma.

    I can defend this issue better anytime it's raised anywhere.

  10. In my own opinion, this is a balance exposition on the issue of trousers wearing. Our mummy was careful enough to put every aspect of argument to rest, there’s no twisting of the scriptures here. As a matter of fact, as long as we are in this world, we will need the HOLY SPIRIT to teach us ALL things, because he’s the Spirit of Truth. We have our liberty in Christ, the law has been abolished, BUT, don’t let this liberty be a problem to someone who had no revelation of this liberty. The message here is simple, becareful, put others into consideration when dressing. The truth is every dressing has a hidden meaning and MOTIVE. Some dress to kill, some dresses to entice, to dress to pass a message…why some dress to show the glory of God. Which ever one you are doing, God’s taking note of it. Mummy thank you and God bless you ma. I was blessed!

  11. Hmmmmn!!! What a great privilege to be on site to read this message . I call this message Sacrifice of your comfort zone for the work of God. Mummy thank you for this great insightful message. More anoiting ma.

  12. Before, God never meant clothings to be worn by humans, but when humans ate the forbidden fruit, He clothed them; and also at the Marrige Supper that will occur in heaven, the saints there ( human beings) were not allowed naked but were “given linen clothes to be arrayed in” (Revelation 19:8). ALSO, GOD HAS STANDARDS FOR DRESSING FOR BOTH MALES AND FEMALES. Pray God to open your eyes in what is in EXODUS 28:1-43; DEUTERONOMY 21:5.
