Praise God For “OLD
SCHOOL” Modesty For Women
Has Your Baptist Church Abandoned Old-Fashioned Modesty,
Calling Immoral Sexy Pants On Women, the “NEW SCHOOL”?
By David J. Stewart | August 2014
Peter 2:11 “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims,
abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.”
I recently had a discussion with some members of a local Baptist
church. These men are professed Christian believers. I shared with them an
awesome Bible-study that I'd heard Brother Hyles (1926-2001) preach last
week titled, “The
Gift Of Prophecy” (MP3). Here is the text Scripture
passage from Brother Hyles' classic sermon...
I explained to them the essence of the sermon and how that pastors should preach against women wearing pants and other sins, but more importantly, the pastor must continually be prophesying (PREACHING) to build up (EDIFY) the family, encourage (EXHORTATION) the brethren, and lift up the fallen (COMFORT). These three tasks are a pastor's primary duty as pastor. I hope you'll take time to listen to the sermon.
While explaining the sermon to these Christian men, I kindly made mention of “the sin of women wearing pants,” to which the older gentleman immediately replied (speaking third person about me)... “He's from the OLD SCHOOL!” What bothered me so much was that it was the church pastor who made that comment. Yes, the church's senior pastor! I'd never mention his name and he's a good man, but he's slack concerning standards on morality. His comment wasn't intended to be an insult, nor was it intended to hurt my feelings; but rather, to categorize me and diminish the awfulness of a church pastor that doesn't preach against immodesty on women. I say this kindly. I have heard the pastor on two occasions make a brief suggestion from the pulpit that women should dress modestly, but he dare not ever say that pants are inappropriate on women. Pants are men's clothing.
There's a famous country song by Merle Haggard called, “Okie From Muskogee.” The lyrics say, “I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee!” ”Well Bless God, I'm proud to be “OLD SCHOOL!” If upholding Biblical standards of modesty makes me “OLD SCHOOL,” then I want to be as old as possible! Call me “Methuselah” (the oldest recorded person in the Old Testament, who lived to be 969 years old). The New School is apostasy!
Which New Is Right? (a Christ-honoring MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles)
I just don't understand a professed man of God who doesn't get upset over sin and preach against sin. There ought to be something vexing the soul of every man of God—an insatiable burning hatred of sin and a compelling burden to preach against it! Brother, we need some Billy Sundays today! But you say, I might lose church members if I preach like that. There was a time when a preacher didn't care if he starved, just so long as the truth had been spoken! No wonder the Lord warned that NO MAN can serve God and mammon (money). People will ALWAYS make their decisions based upon one or the other, but never both, because they are diametrically opposed to each other.
If you are concerned about money, then you will compromise your preaching. But if you are concerned about truth, then you will trust God for your income. I'm tired of pastors who decide how truthful they are going to be, instead of being 100% truthful about everything that needs to be preached, exposed and uplifted. I'd rather pastor 50 people who mean business for God, than cater to a large congregation of 10,000 people who won't tolerate hard-preaching.
Every believer who walks with God WILL have the attitude of Esther, that is, “IF I PERISH, I PERISH!!!” (MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles). Some of you hypocritical preachers who call Brother Hyles “shallow” would be wise to listen to him. You might actually learn something and stop being so ignorant and filled with envy and hate. If a preacher is considered shallow for preaching the Bible in simple terms for the common man to grasp, then I say, “Amen, let it be so!” I recently heard a Baptist pastor deliver a deeper-life sermonette about World Religions. The youth in the church had no idea what he was saying. I barely understood all the big words (like “stoicism”) that he was using, and some of the words I had to go look up when I got home (including stoicism.. lol). You have to explain things to people, because they don't have degrees in theology. I like preaching so simple that even a small child knows exactly what's being said.
May I say, the so-called “New School” is nothing less than ecumenical apostasy—it's a lowering of the moral standards, it is sinful compromise, and it makes God puke VOMIT...
I am not condemning anyone, for I am a big sinner just like everyone else. God hates LUKEWARM Christianity. When you drive in the middle-of-the-road, you're going to hit a bunch of dead skunks!!! Fence-straddlers always rip their britches!!! God wants us to pick a lane and then stay there! God has more respect for a dysfunctional, worldly and compromised church who close their doors permanently; then He does for a bunch of apostates who meet Sunday-after-Sunday for decades, and the preacher never preaches about sin, judgment, eternal punishment, damnation, eternal torment, and the Lake of fire. A preacher is not righteous because he dresses in white apparel, as I've seen many preachers do. It's what's in your soul. PREACH! PREACH! PREACH!

Shame on the professed “man of God” who doesn't walk with his holy God enough to have a burning hatred against sin. Every Christian at some point in their Christian life needs to wake up and get angry over sin, fraud, evil, corruption and deception. It's all around us. I woke up in 2002! As a Christian I expose all forms of lies and fraudulent falsehoods. If you truly walk with God, then you are going to become like God Who wrote the Bible. I can tell who genuinely walks with God, and who does not, just by the way you approach sin, evil, the New World Order, and numerous other issues.
Most Christians are half-baked, like a cake burning on one side. They attend church and go through all the motions, teaching love, love, love; but they never get their hands dirty spiritually by taking a stand against public sin, contending for the Christian faith, street-preaching and offending people with the truth. I once drove by a church and saw a big sign that read, “ABORTION IS MURDER!” That's my kind of pastor and church! Will somebody please take a stand against something!!!
I know that a pastor who makes light of the onslaught of modern Bible perversions is not walking with God as he ought. How can any Christian man, let alone a preacher who has committed his life to preaching THE TRUTH, use, stand behind, promote and defend a piece of garbage like the New International Version (NIV), which calls Joseph Jesus' father. The King James Bible rightfully calls Joseph, “Joseph.” All the other corrupted Bible versions got it very wrong, calling Joseph Jesus' “father,” which is a satanic denial of Jesus' miraculous virgin birth prophesied by Isaiah in Isaiah 7:14. Jesus has no earthly father. Jesus is literally God's only biological (begotten, from His loins) Son...
John 1:12 teaches that every born-again believer is an adopted son of God, but Jesus is the ONLY begotten (biological) Son of God the holy Father. Amen! Jesus is precious!
God has a problem with a pastor who is so at ease on Zion that he never takes a serious stand for God. People are tired of religious and political compromisers. They desire for someone to tell it like it is in a respectable, but firm and loving way! This is known as “TOUGH LOVE!”
By the way, I think it is wrong, sad and wicked when a couple divorces and is excommunicated from their Baptist church, when the pastor never preaches anything about the home, marriage, children, staying busy for God, or feeds His flock the truths which they desperately need. You cannot sing beautiful Christian music, say a few shallow words each Sunday, and then expect families in your church to build up and stay strong. Bible PREACHING builds churches!!! Any bastions of goodness remaining in America today were build up by Preaching Preachers of years past and gone by!!! God give us some more Billy Sundays, J. Frank Norris', and some more Jack Hyles' and some more Dwight L. Moodys!!! Alex Jones could be the next Billy Sunday if he gave His life to Christ and got his priorities straightened out. Alex's top goal is making money, which is why on the August 5, 2014 broadcast of The Alex Jones Show (approximately 23:40 minutes into the video) he has a paid endorsement selling information to recruit people into the Roman Catholic Church, the world's biggest satanic religious cult.
I've never seen times like today, when children and adults alike are surfing the internet during church, Googling while their pastor is preaching (and the pastor encourages such behavior). I just don't understand it. When the pastor speaks, the audience should be required to turn off all the gadgets and pay attention. I was recently in an Independent Baptist church and some guy's portable computer pad (I don't know what you call those stupid things) was blinding my eyes. The glare of the overhead auditorium lights were reflecting right into my eyes. This is another reason why I don't like electronics brought into a church service and think they ought not be allowed. When half the congregation is playing with electronic toys during church, the people around them are being distracted, blinded and annoyed.
God didn't give us “The Great Commission” in Matthew 28:19-20 to “GO YE” into all the world and build Christian schools. God's plan is local New Testament Churches. I agree 100% with Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001), I'd rather have one church than seven Christian schools. God is more pleased with a believer who doesn't attend church, yet stays busy for God trying to reach others with the Gospel; than He is with a showboat believer who goes through all the motions at church to be a member in good standing, but never lifts a finger to do anything for the Lord.
Our Independent Baptist churches are filled with shallow believers who are trying to impress each other, yet they never preach the Gospel, never contend for the faith, never preach about eternal punishment in Hell, never comfort others with the promise of the Lord's return for the saints at the Rapture, et cetera. Even worse, I'd say that at least half of America's Independent Baptist churches have adopted a false plan of salvation which adds human effort to faith alone in Christ, errantly teaching that a person must stop living for themselves and cease from willful sinning to be saved.
I look forward to receiving my new body at
the pretribulation Rapture, fashioned like unto the dear Lord's amazing
resurrected body (Philippians 3:21). Jesus walked through walls (when He
appeared to His apostles and to doubting Thomas). He ascended into Heaven
by the Holy Spirit's power. Jesus ate and drank, enjoying a meal with the
apostles. And then Jesus ate again with the disciples when they returned to
shore from fishing on the Sea of Galilee, and the Lord had delicious prepared fish and bread, waiting to
serve and eat. What a Savior!!! We'll be able to enjoy eating, music, playing and
drinking and doing the same hobbies and things which we've enjoyed doing
here on earth, that is, unless they were evil or immoral things. And best
of all, we'll have perfectly healthy and young bodies, incapable of
disease and the pains of growing old and aging. Amen for that glorious
day! Hallelujah! I believe it's sooner than we think!
Preaching Ought To Be Well-Rounded!
If you listened to the MP3 Bible study at the beginning of this article by Dr. Hyles, titled, “The Gift Of Prophecy,” then you heard him say that for every time he plucks his congregation's feathers, he's going to encourage them, comfort them and build them 10-times more.
A pastor who always preaches against sin, plucks the congregations tail-feather's and brings down the house do-to-speak, is not properly fulfilling his duty as a pastor and preacher. Yet a pastor who never preaches against sin is also dropping the ball, failing to feed and admonish his congregation. The pastor is the spiritual leader, and he ought to be proclaiming the truths of the inspired Word of God continually! When a man or group of men run a church, then it becomes a religious cult. The authority of the New Testament Church is the Holy Bible!
On the other extreme, we've got many churches across America where the pastor builds up the family, lifts the fallen and encourages the weak. But they never preach against the sin of immodesty on Christian women. Every pastor has a responsibility TO GOD TO PREACH against the evils of pants on women, abortion, homosexuality, adultery, laziness, gossiping, lust, feminism and rebellion in the home, spousal abuse, drunkenness, hatred, not paying your bills, et cetera. The pastor also has a duty to warn his people about coming judgment in the fires of Hell for all eternity in horrific endless torments.
Salvation is not
doing your best, it is having Christ's best put
