All men fall short the glory of God.

Matthew 6:22"The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23"But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! This isn't a blame issue nor is this a social political issue, this is quite pointedly a thumbing your nose at God to "do your own thing" issue. This is a children teaching children that it's ok to do "whatever" as long as you are tolerant above all other virtue. Tolerance is not love, compassion and unselfishness are much higher on the scale of virtue as well.

Aaron Brown I find it hard to believe that God who hung the earth in nothing and the stars in the sky can't be powerful enough to protect His written word. Jewish scribes were very meticulous in copying the Word, character for character, so much so that if a mistake was made that scroll was burnt so that it would not be accidentally circulated. There is much evidence that the Gospels were written within 100 years of the events. Compare this to the written account out the life of Alexander the Great which was written 500 years after his death, yet we still take it as truth. We don't assume the mind of God, we know what it is because He tells us in His Word and by His Holy Spirit. He also tells us it will never change: "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." Matt 24:35

I think the power thing came from the fact that if a woman was less modest (showed her ankles) Back in the day women were treated like property. "Women were not encouraged to obtain a real education or pursue a professional career. After marriage, women did not have the right to own their own property, keep their own wages, or sign a contract. In addition, all women were denied the right to vote." Women, as stated in the video about swimming, were often not allowed to be immodest. Better not show your ankles. *gasp* Modesty has decreased as our rights increased. While I think it's absurd to use our bodies as a representation of our freedom. I also can see how it might be viewed that way.

That verse is about how we shouldn't dress to impress people or get attention, but focus on our personalities and actions. I try to be modest in clothing and action, but just because a woman wears a bikini does not mean she is trying to get attention or "immodest". Being modest can be a good thing from the heart or it can be bad out of self-righteousness. I do not think a "modest" woman is any more Godly that a "less modest" woman because of her attire. I do not see anywhere in the Bible that defines modesty, demands it, or says an amount of clothing is Godly or unGodly.

Roy Holaday Dioliza Yogore Martir A lot of the information int his video was distorted. The study did not account for multiple variables including conditioning, culture and other things. No proper control group. The women in bikinis were sexualized not just casual women in bikinis. There was a similar study with homeless people and drug addicts. They were viewed as objects, but with avoidance instead of attraction. My guess is we are too quick to dehumanize people in general. Also, does this study mean that in the bedroom a man doesn't really care about his wife? She is just an object at that point? Muslim women in foreign countries are some of the most covered women in the world that I know of. They also suffer/have suffered a ton of abuse, been treated like property, and a number of absurd things. If the problem is how we dress why are some of the most modest women in the world abused at all? I think men are trained to react that way through media (especially porn) and just culture in general. To Christian's: Jesus saw naked women and could control himself. Scantily dressed women is no excuse to look at women that way.

Dioliza Yogore Martir Where in the Bible does it talk about how much clothing is appropriate? I don't recall any verse in the Bible that says women must cover things. What in the Bible defines boobs as private parts? What in the bible defines modesty? I believe out of love for men and their struggles we should be careful not to be really inappropriate with our attire. I think it's absurd we judge women so much on their attire.

Jeannie Oakes Herod but it was just Adam and Eve.. wasn't Adam allowed to lust after his wife? I think the coverings represents how God shed BLOOD to cover our sin and shame. I doubt he dressed them for modesty.. just sayin.

The problem is not the bikini, but disrespectful men. God put us on this earth naked, but sin clothed us. Even with clothes on or off, a good man will respect, a bad man will take advantage and hurt.

Tim Buckle "some tribal societies live in near complete nudity and there is no drooling disrespectful males raping the women in those societies.." uhmmm you know very well thats not true right. but again bikinis or no bikinis women deserve respect at all times, same with men. with that every side of any argument is based on being conditioned no matter what. wether we agree or not in this video both sides are always conditioned by what surrounds us.

a lot of people here are saying that the problem is that we are conditioning the women to live in fear.. and that this and that are kinds of body shaming.. as far as others have the right to do whatever they want to themselves then go ahead but jessica rey also has the right to say things she believed in... though its true that saying that women are to blame when something bad is done to them beacuse of what they wear is just so wrong.. i think the point here is man and women should coexist and ones fault could be also the fault of the other.... its wrong to objectify women because of what they wear..but thats not the issue cause wether or nor not they wear something or not, to do something bad to woman is wrong. that point taken responsibility should be shared as no one lives for themselves only. for the argument that the society has conditioned women to live and fear..well that can also apply as to saying that this new generation is conditioned to think that of they should be able to do anything without having to fear consequences to achieve freedom and liberation is as sick as the latter. so the argument of both sides could be categorised as "conditioned by society" wether you believe on wearing a bikini or not. personaly i like what jessica rey said. and for guys like me they shouldt think of this as an excuse to disrespect any women ..whats wrong is wrong no need for justification. let people voice out what they believe in cause its unfair to think that only one side should be able to say what they want freely and argue that "i should be able to do what i want" thats a total bullshit. everything has a consequence. this younger generation has been spoiled to much to think that they have the right to do anything without consequences...youre not alone your in a world where others also exist. saying that you shoudnt put out your expensive jewelry in a place where it could be taken from by people with bad intention is not saying that a person showing off his or her expensive jewelry should be blamed if someone stole it. what it actually means is BE RESPONSIBLE. thats different from shaming this and shaming that.
