The Scarlet Virgins Episode #6 – Modesty
Growing up, Rebecca Lemke was taught that modesty was a woman’s issue. She was told that men were visual and didn’t possess self-control, so it was the duty of her and her female friends to keep their male companions on the straight and narrow.
After leaving legalism and purity culture, Rebecca was introduced to the idea that women play no part in loving their male neighbors through their wardrobe. This rhetoric left her thinking: Am I my brother’s keeper?
In this episode, she recounts her experiences with both of these schools of thought and offers her Christ-focused approach as an alternative.
