Bible and life

Deuteronomy 22:5 says that woman cannot dress in man’s clothes, and men – in woman’s, because it is an abomination for God. Is this order real for the New Testament and for modern life, when there are so many women walking around in jeans? And does it mean that it is necessary to avoid contact with such women?


Man's and woman's dress was skirt-like chlamydes of various lengths at the time when the commandment of Deuteronomy 22:5 was given. Pants were brought in Europe by the Germans in the beginning of the Middle Ages and in the Middle East by the Europeans in the era of Crusades. So the problem is not the type of clothes, jeans may be woman’s clothing as well as man’s. The commandment forbids to pose oneself as a person of the opposite sex, and is included in the complex of the Laws prohibiting homosexual (same sex) eroticism. There's nothing wrong if a woman wears jeans not for such a purpose, but just because convenient for modern life clothing.
