Kenyan Church Pastor Bans Female Parishioners From Wearing Underwear
CBSDC ^ | March 3, 2014 | March 3, 2014

Posted on 03/04/2014 4:58:29 AM PST by Gamecock

NAIROBI, Kenya (CBSDC/AP) - A local pastor has ordered all women who attend service at Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church to refrain from wearing undergarments while attending so that they can more easily receive the spirit of Jesus Christ.

The Kenyan Daily Post is reporting that a pastor identified only as “Reverend Njohi” claimed bras and underwear are not godly. Additionally, the paper says Njohi wants women who attend service at the church to be “free,” and that there would be consequences for those who do not comply.

According to the UK Metro, most women did, in fact, show up at the church, located in the eastern suburb of Dandora, the following Sunday without any undergarments on under their clothing.

Sounds like the "Reverend" doesn't want the women wearing underpants so they can more easily receive his "spirit."

How can they be sure the women were not wearing underwear? Are the deacons assigned to check on that?

He should come to a “seeker sensitive” church in the US. Most women aren’t wearing underwear in those churches.

Ah yeah.
Heard of some churches like that.
“Bible study” was a euphemism for extra curricular activity in one place near me.
Thankfully, that church has actually started cleaning up their act.

And to think that at one time we were told not to wear patent leather shoes because they’d reflect what was up our skirts.

I’m not talking about that. I’m just referring to the “anything is OK” attitude in those churches and what passes for acceptable clothing these days.
