Scripture Background

 

While we realize that the Scriptures do not specifically tell us how we should dress or how our hair should be cut, they do give us some principles to follow. In light of these principles, we must set an institutional standard for our school. Our intention is not to say that a Christian who fails to meet our standards is sinning, but only that our students must meet this standard in order for us to be consistent in our enforcement. General scriptural guidelines for dress are:

 

1)  Modesty of both boys and girls: “that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety;...” (I Timothy 2:9). “Flee also youthful lusts; but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart...” (II Timothy 1:22).

 

2)   Identification with the Lord and not with the world: “...but be thou an example of the believers, in work, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (I Timothy 4:12). “...present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world;...” (Romans 12:1-2).  “Love not the world, neither the things that are of the world.  If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him...” (I John 2:15).
