Don’t cause a brother to stumble.
We’ve heard this phrase applied to modesty, but do we really know the context of Romans 14? Who is the weaker brother – the man, or the woman? The answer varies based on who we’re talking about, but that’s not something you learned if you grew up in purity culture. In PC, the weaker brother is always the man.
But is this what Scripture teaches? In this episode of Verity, we delve into modesty: the passages often cited to support purity culture’s modesty narratives, and how the Spirit of God frees us to a much better way.
