Okay, I know I haven't been around in a few days, and this is really cheezy to post someone else's words on your blog when you've been away. In this case, however, the words they used were SO compelling that I thought I would just leave them the way they are and include a link.
If you have teenagers, know any teenagers, or have children who will one day be teenagers, then you have GOT to check out this website! I am absolutely blown AWAY by these teenage boys and the Rebelution they have started.
Oh how I pray for my boys that they will have this kind of integrity and courage as young adults!
The following is straight from their website:
TheRebelution.com has launched the results of their massive Modesty Survey! Over 1,600 Christian guys have answered questions on everything from glitter lotion and lip gloss to swimsuits and skirt slits! It's everything girls have ever wanted to ask guys about modesty, but were afraid to ask!
For guys, it's really interesting to see what other Christian guys think! Most importantly, the survey is presented as a resource to help Christian girls (and guys), not a list of legalistic rules, and it is accompanied by the Modesty Survey Petition (which tons of guys have signed) which encourage young women to focus on the heart, not the hemline, to honor their parents, etc.
The results were released on St. Valentine's Day as a gift from 1,600 Christian guys to all Christian girls -- and I can't think of a better one! Now the survey is being endorsed by people like Shaunti Feldhahn ("For Women Only") Nancy Leigh DeMoss (Revive Our Hearts), CJ Mahaney (Sovereign Grace Ministries) and Shannon Ethridge ("Every Woman's Battle")!
Go check it out: www.therebelution.com/modestysurvey
But also make sure you spread the word to all your friends. We want as many Christian girls (and guys) as possible to see this, so forward this on!
P.S. Guys, they are still accepting signatures for the Modesty Survey Petition, so this is an opportunity for you to still share your voice on the topic of modesty!
