Just realized I was thinking of the wrong thing. Just goes to show how much I know about women's clothing. Yeah, true. I guess my comparison about walking around in my underwear is a little more accurate than I thought it is, considering the whole "Comfort vs Spiritual conflict" thing. I guess this is another one of those things that Paul talks about in 1st Corinthians when he says "Therefore, if food causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause my brother to stumble." There is a balance between living in seclusion so that you won't sin (which still won't work) and not over-thinking your daily choices too much.IIRC leggings are mostly worn for comfort more for drawing attention
I think you bring a good point and I always think back to 1 Corinthians 8:13 when it comes to this issue.First, I want to make it clear that I am speaking from a guy's perspective. I think the decision of whether to wear it or not comes down to a simple question. Does this encourage men to stumble in their faith? I can't answer that question. Each gender has the responsibility to make sure their clothing is respectful. That's why I don't walk around in my underwear at the super market. I'm not saying we all wear cloaks like in Harry Potter, the key word is "encourage" in that question. Men will stumble because of some of their own problems. There is nothing women can do about that. But wearing something that you KNOW is going to grab attention, or wearing something with the intent of trying to grab that attention (the wrong kind, by the way.) I don't believe is the right answer. Paul states in his letter to Timothy "likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire," (1st Timothy 2:9) I think this is because trying to get attention like that, will only draw the wrong kind of guys into that person's life. Like most things, this is just an 18 year old guys opinion. Take it with a grain of salt and with Bible in hand. God bless.
