No Pants Rule for 2x2 Women

"No Pants" is a 2x2 rule of the overseers. If you go to a cult meeting, you will see devout women followers wear their hair in buns, no lipstick, no lip gloss, dresses or skirts and not pants.

The Bible teaches that women should dress modestly. Oops. Correction. The Bible teaches modesty in dress and action.

Contradictions in Workers Actions and Teachings

Sometimes the overseers, workers and friends ask or expect women to do chores in which wearing a dress doing it would cause them to be immodest, and so some wear pants. But this is frowned on. When women say that it's more modest to wear pants, then the workers will often quote this verse.

Deu 22:5 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.

You may think, "Well, that's relevant.", but please consider this. First, this verse is part of the Law given by Moses. Since when do workers follow the Law? That's hypocritical to quote the law when they don't even believe in it.

Are Women in Pants Cross-Dressing?

Secondly, this verse is about cross-dressing. I don't think that women who are wearing pants are going into the men's clothing stores to buy their pants. Do you? Are women cross-dressing? Is this their goal? The women are buying clothing that is sold as women's clothing and worn by women for decades in society before. Taking verses out of context to oppress people not only puts them and the rule-maker in bondage, but it confuses people and turns them against God. Workers do not rightly divide the word of God but use it to enforce rules in their cult on the ignorant folks who don't understand the Bible and have trusted the workers to interpret it for them.

Perhaps workers have forgotten that men used to wear robes which today fits more in line with a dress. If an elder wore a woman's dress to meeting, I would agree that this constitutes cross-dressing and Deu 22:5 should be brought up.

Thirdly, the workers may tell the woman who wears pants that her "spirit is not right". They make following their rules a matter of salvation. In other words, if you cannot follow our rules that we make up, and that we enforce selectively, then you cannot be an approved member of our cult.

Women Resolve Regarding Pants

It's hard for the women to please the overseers, workers and elders. Women may wear pants only when husbands not around. Women may wear pants only when workers are not around. Some women just learn to ignore their nasty looks or they quit going to meetings and thumb their nose at the overseers and workers' man-made rules for women.

1Ti_2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

Selective Enforcement of 2x2 Man-Made Rules

My 2x2 mother and father wore a gold ring. My 2x2 mother would braid my sister's hair. My 2x2 sister would wear immodest skirts to conventions. My sister slept alone with her fiancee in her apartment before they were married! 2x2 relatives of mine lived together before being married! Some 2x2 overseers would wear expensive suits when preaching. Do you think 2x2s really believe in their man-made rules, or even the Bible? Why is the focus on man-made rules instead of scripture? It's simple - make the rules, condemn and make them feel guilty - bondage!

The issue of 2x2 women not being allowed to wear pants brings up the man-made rules and man-made self-righteous "works" based aspect of the 2x2 religion. The overseers, workers and elders make up rules and expect their followers to obey them. These rules are so arduous and irrelevant that people cannot and do not follow them. And the people feel guilty about things that they should not necessarily feel guilty about. So they view themselves as inferior to the overseers and workers and worship the workers who have made these rules for them. The man-made rules are used to oppress.

Many of the women who begin wearing pants, do not submit to their husbands anyways. And so this connection may make overseers and workers feel justified when they try to enforce their rules. They can feel justified in their rule-making. But it is their rules and not God's. Just because they can make up rules and coerce people into following them does not make them God.

The "No Pants" rule also shows that the overseers, workers, elders and their followers are not worshiping God. God's laws are not written in their hearts by the LORD, but man-made rules are being written in their minds by the workers. They should be promoting modesty instead of "no pants".

Jesus said the law and prophets..

Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
Mat 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Mat 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

It's clear that God's laws promote love and the workers' rules promote idolatry and confusion.

If the 2x2 followers want to be concerned about clothing, let them be concerned about the wolves wearing sheep's clothing. Wolves in sheep's clothing is of a greater concern than a woman wearing pants.

Mat_7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Things to Think About

  • I have seen women at convention wearing skirts that you can see through
  • I have seen women at conventions wearing skirts with slits going way up the sides on their legs.
  • There are men workers who have taken advantage of children sexually. This is of greater concern to me than women wearing pants. Why don't workers spend time harping on this instead of women wearing pants?
  • Homosexual workers sleeping in the same bed in 2x2 followers homes is a greater concern to me than women wearing pants. Are those noises from them being "companions?"
  • Does breaking a man-made rule constitute having a "wrong spirit"?

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
