FAQ :: Is it okay for a man to dress like a woman?

This is one of those issues that the Lord decided to directly address in His Word. Deuteronomy 22:5 says, “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this.” God made you to be the person He wanted you to be. A man is to live, dress, act and look like a man–the way God intended.

Be sure that you realize, though, that God condemned the act of cross-dressing but, even though He knew you would struggle with this, He loved you so much that He sent His Son to die for you. That kind of love has power that can help you overcome any sin in your life. God wants to help you gain control of this issue. This is what God says about temptation: “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.”

If you have never placed your hope and trust in the Lord, Jesus Christ, you can do that now by praying a simple prayer. First John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse up from all unrighteousness.” You need to go to God in prayer and humbly admit your sin, then ask Him to forgive you and be Lord in your life. He promises that He will hear and answer that prayer. Then, you can let Him give you strength each day to overcome your temptations.
