The trend of new generation seems to go off beyond the limit of what we called modesty. Young men and women are often dummies of this fashion evolution. The sense of respect to our body are set aside wanting to be 'in' in the new world of trends and fashions. Don't we know that in us lives our spirit and dwell the Holy Spirit? Why allow the world to clothe us as a dummy if we have a higher standard than that of a mannequin? I believe in modesty as one way of portraying oneself to gain respect from other people. If you try to reveal private parts of your body, what do you think is the message you are trying to imply to those who sees it?
Even tattoos and body piercings seemed to be a part of social trends and so is the alcoholism, drugs addiction, and everything that destroy our body as a creation of God. "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are (1Cor 3:16-17).
