As A Woman, which bathroom would you go into?

Lets say as a woman you could not read English (or you were in a foreign country and could not read the language) and you really needed to go to the bathroom/public restroom. Looking at the above picture, which bathroom would you go into? The left or the right?

Most women would choose neither correct? Why is that? Is it because the above picture is what appears to be a man in pants and you know that neither bathroom would be for your gender correct? I think its safe to say you agree.

Now lets say you were a woman and saw this particular sign and you needed to go to the bathroom. It is almost 100% safe to say that you would choose the left side (and not because its pink either) but because it is a picture of a woman in a dress correct? You would not go into the bathroom that had a picture of a man in pants because you would instantly know based on outward appearance that the picture of a man in pants is NOT your gender correct? Correct!

The Lord Jesus commands men and women (male and female) to be distinctive in their outward garments. Deuteronomy 22:5 clearly says “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.” This is not a ceremonial law but it is a moral law (and based on scripture, moral laws were NOT done away with…..only ceremonial laws were). With that said, here in North America (along with other nations worldwide) the women’s garment is a dress/skirt and a mans garment is pants. Why not be pleasing to the Lord Jesus today by following the biblical mandate of wearing the outter garment that God has called you to wear. What a confused world we would live in if every bathroom had an image of a human in pants on (or skirts for that matter). None of us would know which bathroom to go into. The bible is clear that the blending of sexes is a moral abomination.

So as a male when you ask me why I don’t wear skirts, its the same reason why a woman should not wear pants. God wants a clear distinction between male and female. No clear distinction equals disobedience to God’s Word.

In the words of Bishop W.L. Bonner, “you stay out of my pants, and I’ll stay out of your skirts” (that’s funny old school humor, he said that one day during mid-week bible study).

2 Corinthians 7:1 says Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh (outward holiness) and spirit (inward holiness), perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
