Where does it say in the Bible men canít wear eyeliner or paint their fingernails and toenails? Ancient societies men in the Middle East wore eyeliner as well as the women.

Re: Women Wearing Pants

For me, it is all a matter of hermeneutics. How is Deut. 22:5 interpreted correctly ? How is one verse picked out of a chapter while the rest of the chapter is ignored ? Are believers to obey the Law of Moses or not ? How does the Council of Jerusalem come into play ??

Scott, the same thing goes for the differences in the hair for men and women.
There is no gender blending in the Bible. The council of Jerusalem in Acts 15 is about circumcision. Yet, the Gentiles needed to ditch their pagan practices. The problem is that you believe they fabricated a totally new religion after Pentecost. One that would of be unrecognizeble by the first century Judeans. I wonder what Harry Morse would of told you about pants on women?

Would you then say that Deut 22:5 cannot really be used to argue that women must not wear pants? That is, as long as a woman is not acting as a man or assuming his role, then modest pants are acceptable?

I've seen this word "bifurcated" several times recently (on another site). What is the origin of that word as a substitute for "pants"? Is there a reason why it is better to say this instead of just pants?

Who defines what "opposite sex's clothes" are, and can that ever change?

I think the verse is ambiguous enough to make this a possibility.

So I do not believe it's out of place to say the verse could refer to women trying to wear armor and be a warrior. The verse actually is very specific as to women trying to use articles, utensils, etc of men and of men wearing women's garments.


See above. The "clothing" for the women is not garments, cloth or covering.
.
I looked at several commentaries tonight, and all said that the word referring to things pertaining to men is broader than the word referring to women. For men the word refers to a variety of things (all those you have mentioned) including clothing, while for women, the word refers explicitly to clothing.
