Modesty In 1911

By David J. Stewart

1st Timothy 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.”

Isn't that an awesome photo above from 1911! Not one lady is wearing pants, which was the culture back then. Family at that time normally had 4 to 5 children and 8 to 12 child families were not uncommon. It was a beautiful time in American history of honest immigrants from Europe, most of whom were skilled craftsmen of had some type of professional skills to offer. Femininity and modesty was commonplace in the United States and big families abounded.

I captured the photo from an old video in the following documentary about child slave labor globally in 2012 (a century later): Bangladesh Women And Children Shot, Beaten and Abused For Requesting 35 Cents An Hour. Again, the above photo is from the year 1911, back when feminism hadn't infiltrated and ruined our nation. Feminism is a Communist agenda which has ruined every society that it infects; introducing abortion, contraceptives, sterilization, lewdness, sexually immoral promiscuity, a blatant disregard for courtship, career women, false religion, shameful rebellion, divorce and lesbianism. Feminism is the maggot-infested-rot of every civilization, always attacking motherhood and bringing a nation to chaos and destruction eventually.

Thank God for the very small group of modest ladies today who are willing to go against the decadence that American society has sadly become since 1911. Although the sinful Roaring Twenties, the end of the Prohibition Era (legalized booze), Hollywood, Broadway and the Communist-backed entertainment industry in general are greatly to blame for instigating the moral corruption of America, the American people themselves are ultimately to blame for abandoning faith in the God of the Bible. America's churches have been subverted by the 501c3 government licensing scam, which effectively silences the churches by using fear of losing their tax-exempt status. Other effective agendas of the Marxist-globalists have been the Masonic founding of several mainstream false religions (Mormons, Jehovah's Witness, Christian Science, Oral Robert's Charismatics, Seventh-Day Adventists, Scientology, et cetera).

Also, the Bible-corrupting industry, which are all based on the work of 19th century Freemason's Westcott and Hort, have been instrumental in runing our nation's churches and corrupting our pulpits from then truth. Satan is a master plotter and deceiver, who operates through generational occult-led groups to do his dark bidding.

Thus, it is no coincidence that motherhood is under relentless attack, being laughed to scorn, mocked and ridiculed openly these days. Modesty is a thing of the past as far as society is concerned. Forty years of legalized abortion since 1972 can only lead to the further devaluization of human life, and the total breakdown of family values and American culture. Same-sex marriage is being legalized state-by-state nationwide, very soon to become the law of the land. One can only shudder to think what the next woeful moral low will be! What new shameful decadence will the television networks and Hollywood stoop to in an effort to boost viewer ratings?

The Good Old Days In America

The admirable photo at the beginning of this article speaks volumes as to the incredible power of time and influence upon any civilization. Look how America has drastically changed in just a century. It's unbelievable. Most people today in 2012 cannot grasp the world just as recent as the 1970s (in which I grew up) when there were no microwaves yet (they hadn't been invented). There were no credit cards. Everyone paid cash or checks back then. All TV's were big bulky tube sets. Records and 8-Tracks were the big trend then! CD's and DVD's didn't exist. There were no cellphones, and the first ones that went public in the 1980s were as big and clumsy as a large brick.

Personal computers and the internet didn't exist publicly in the 1970's. Can you imagine? The 60's muscle cars were still popular and all cars were rear-wheel-drive then (all stuck in the snow because the weight was in the front, but the drive axel was in the rear). All cars today are front-wheel-drive and the weight of the engine prevents getting stuck in the snow and ice. In the 1980's I owned a 1973 Oldsmobile with a 350-rocket engine and headers. It was red with a white vinyl top. They don't make great cars anymore. Today they're all plastic garbage and impossible to repair without high-tech gadgetry. Back then I used to set my ignition points gap with a simply matchbook cover.

The 70's were a beautiful time to grow up in the United States. Youth could play with plastic guns from Benjamin Franklin dime stores back then without worrying about an undercover cop shooting you, thinking it was a real gun. No one had fences then. A the years passed, everyone started putting up those dreadful ugly chain-link fences. I hate those type fences. I'll take a wooden white-picket fence anytime and paint it every couple years. I love picket fences and a wrap-around front porch, with lots of garden flowers and plants to contrast the white fence. I'm looking forward to my home in Heaven, which the Lord Himself said He is preparing for each believer (John 14:1-3). It was no coincidence that the Lord worked as a carpenter here on earth. He's building our homes up in glory. Amen!!!

I used to walk with my mom to Woolworth store and they had the old round ice-cream-barstools where you could sit down and order a cheese-sandwich or ice-cream cone. It was great! Fireworks were fun back then and it wasn't considered an act of terrorism to light off an M-80 or Cherry Bomb. There was a completely different public attitude towards fireworks back then. Today everybody's paranoid about even some firecrackers from China. Texas still allows firecrackers out in rural areas I believe. Ah yes, memories.

Those folks who grew up in the 1930's remember The Great Depression. People from that era have an entirely different way of viewing life than the younger generations do. The Great Depression Era taught that generation to appreciate what they have, to struggle to survive, to make it do. I love what Gerald Celente says...

“Use it up, wear it out, make it do, do without.”

“When people lose everything and they have nothing left to lose, they lose it!” Gerald Celente

The youth who grew up in the 1950's and 1960's lived in a time of plenty and didn't have to struggle like their parents did through The Great Depression. So they had a different attitude toward everything. Today's kids are spoiled brats that have no respect for the elders nor any fear of God. The need has never been greater to teach young people about God, prayer and the Bible. Walt Disney teaches teen boys to be immoral and “score” with the girls. Disney introduces teen girls into whoredom. Courtship is laughed at. Things have sure changed over the past century.

Lack Of Morality Is Directly Linked To Lack Of Faith In The Gospel

The biggest underlying difference between today and 1911 is America's faith in God and the percentage of Christians in our society. There were a lot more Christians back in 1911. I tried to research some statistics to compare the percentage of Christians today compared to a century ago, but it's almost impossible to obtain accurate date. The reason is because Roman Catholics are NOT genuine, Biblical, born-again, Christians; yet all of the statistics include them in the numbers. Catholics ascribe to a false plan of works salvation based upon keeping seven different sacraments. They boldly profess to trust in their self-righteousness as their hope of Heaven.

The Bible condemns Catholicism through-and-through as a hellhole of fake religion. I say that to be truthful, not mean or unkind. I care about people and don't want Catholics to go to Hell. If I am gentle and attempt to beat-around-the-bush, then you may not get the point. By speaking boldly and saying that the Roman Catholic religion is straight out of the pits of Hell, people know exactly what I am saying. The Pope is Satan's messenger! There is NO salvation in the Catholic church. The Spirit of God is NOT present in the Catholic church.

The gospel needs to be preached to the world. I'm tired of hearing people talk about improving society and our youth through education, but they don't mention the need for the gospel to become a Christian. Without relying upon the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ no one can get to Heaven. Only Jesus' precious blood can wash our sins away  (1st Peter 1:18-19).

The answer to America's woes is NOT rehabilitation, nor education, nor legislation, nor reformation; but rather, REGENERATION!!! Jesus taught, “Ye must be born again” (John 3:5-7).

America Is Becoming A Stranger To The World

The world doesn't even recognize America anymore, because we're stooping to new lows morally, our economy is falling apart, our leaders are making us look like fools. Before the 9-11 attacks there was no police state. This is all new to our nation. Unfortunately, a whole new generation of youth growing up will never know anything but a police state since they day they were born. All of the grade-schooler-aged children today (born after 09-11-2001) have never known anything besides an orange-Christmas (terror alert) and a paranoid society on edge against the fabricated boogieman of Alqaeda and the mythical, never-ending, bogus War On Terror.

Tomorrow's adults within the next decade will have grown up entirely in a paranoid terror-stricken culture of worry and police scrutiny. That's the master plan, that is, to indoctrinate the next generation to be total submissive slaves, who are woefully ignorant of the Bill Of Rights, and believe that a totalitarian Marxist police state is not only necessary, but desirable to protect alleged national security. The truth is that we've been lied to and deceived woefully about everything. There never was a credible threat against our nation. Albeit, the open borders have always been major threat, yet they are deliberately left wide open to dismantle our national sovereignty. A nation without borders ceases to be a country. Alex Jones does an excellent job explaining the forming North American Union in his awesome video, ENDGAME.

The 1980's really brought adverse changes to America through open borders and deindustrialization. Millions of Americans lost their jobs to foreign slave labor and tens-of-millions of illegals flooded into our country. The face of America really started to change. The 1990's brought more of the same, but with the complete moral breakdown of U.S. society, introducing same-sex marriage into the mainstream. Since the September 11, 2001 attacks America is no longer even recognizable, more resemblant of doctor Frankenstein's monster or The Thing than a free nation that honors the U.S. Constitution. Today, our once legitimate government is completely gone, having been replaced by the foreign banking interests. President Obama has appointed at least 37 former Goldman Sachs employees, which says it all. The White (Goldman Sachs) House (Goldman Sachs in the White House).

Morally, economically, academically, spiritually and in every other way America is no longer the graceful, eloquent, beauty which she once was. Instead we've become the cut-throat, ugly, monster of the planet. The Evils Of Preemptive War (Dr. Paul: “We have rejected the just war theory of Christianity”). Our nation's entrusted leaders start unprovoked wars in OUR name, with OUR money, using OUR children in the military and murder innocent citizens of sovereign nations. It's tragic that most people don't make it OUR business as Americans to stand up against tyranny and abuse. Why do you think TSA is molesting U.S. citizen's at all airport checkpoints? It's psychological conditioning, getting us accustomed to having them stick their hands down our blouses and pants.

This is why police have been indoctrinated with a NEW form of para-militant training that requires them to be aggressive toward citizens, use brute force if the slightest resistance is exhibited by a frustrated citizen at having their Bill Of Rights violated, and to use intimidation tactics continually to condition the public to FEAR the police. They even evasively search the children and the elderly. Such aggressive body groping has absolutely nothing to do with national security; but rather, conditioning people to be slaves. They're using canine dogs and forcing New Yorkers to submit to random and unwarranted bag searches. YOU'RE THE ENEMY AMERICA!!!

When the people fear the police you have a totalitarian police state. When the police fear the people you have anarchy and overthrow of government. In a truly free society, all people mutually respect each other and only evildoers need to be afraid.

Closing Remarks

The only hope for America is that a remnant of people be reached for Christ with the gospel. If enough people repented, then God would heal our nation. This is a Biblical promise to every nation (2nd Chronicles 7:13-15). Albeit, I don't believe that America is going to repent, simply because of the times that we are living in. Modern technology has allowed humanity to travel farther down the evil road of wickedness that the world has always been on (1st John 5:19).

I've never seen such a spirit of gossip, hatred and malicious self-righteousness as exists today in American society. The newsmedia and the internet are cutthroat and ruthless. Neighbor is rising up against neighbor, destroying each other without reservation. Sexual perversion, lewdness and promiscuity saturates American culture. Demonic influences are everywhere. Television is straight out of Hell.

Whereas nearly all women wore beautiful long, baggy, vintage dresses a century ago; today nearly all women wear immodest slacks, low-cut blouses and tight jeans. The morality of society in general always strongly influences the morality of the believers in any church. The reason is because we all live in secular society, which is corrupted. It's very difficult to find a decent Bible-believing church where the Bible is taught and lived. The spirituality of the church hinges upon the pastor (hopefully a man of God), and what he preaches from the pulpit.

Most pastors are cowards when it comes to taking a Biblical stand against immodesty and feminism. Pastors ought to teach women in the church to obey their husband, and not to argue doctrine with their husband. If a woman disagrees with her husband, then she should pray for him and lovingly maintain a submissive, meek (compliant) and quiet spirit. The Bible teaches that women should leave the doctrinal church debates to the men. Pastors need to teach Christian ladies never to doctrinally challenge their husband in front of other men...

1st Timothy 2:11-14, “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.”

There are women who hold doctorates degrees in theology and can doctrinally run circles around most Christian men, however, she is also supposed to keep silent and maintain a spirit of meekness, not to debate boldly as a man is expected to do by God (Jude 1:3). Melissa Scott is a disgraceful, embarrassment. I've never seen a women who can say so much and yet say absolutely nothing tangible, comprehensible nor meaningful in an hour's time. She's a total false prophet!!!

The Bible tells godly women to teach younger women to be sober, TO LOVE THEIR HUSBANDS AND CHILDREN...

Titus 2:3-4, “The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children.”

I could preach an entire sermon on just that one little phrase about teaching the younger women to “LOVE THEIR HUSBANDS”!!! Many backslidden women (little witches) teach other women to quit, divorce and abandon her husband. Is that what the Bible says? No, the Bible says in Titus 2:4 to teach the younger women to LOVE THEIR HUSBAND AND CHILDREN. Divorce is hatred and an unwillingness to forgive. Nearly every woman who files for divorce blames her husband and mentions the worst of his alleged sins. Matthew 7:1-5 warns that God will judge such women by their own self-righteous and hypocritical measure of judgment.

1st Peter 3:7, “Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.” Many churches have problems with bad attitudes amongst the women because the pastor has not taken charge from the pulpit, preaching against gossip, wifely disobedience, women preachers, feminism, abortion and other deadly false doctrines that prey upon Christian women these days.
