    9 Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. 10 So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith. - Galatians 6:9-10 NASB

      Deuteronomy 22:5, which is often used to frighten and condemn men who wish to wear women's attire.

      The passage goes thus:

      "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."

      Looks pretty cut and dried, huh? Perhaps that is all the evidence some people might need to state that men should never ever, under any circumstances, wear any item of women's lingerie. Of course, with a glibness that defies belief, the very same people who make these claims will often have no issue with women wearing jeans or slacks, which for a very long time were considered to be men's clothing, but lets put that double standard aside for a moment, and focus on the scripture.

      In order to truly assess this passage, I think it is important to examine it in a wider context, say, against the background of the rest of the book of Deuteronomy. Let's examine a few other passages from Deuteronomy which tell believers how to live their lives.

      Here's an excerpt from Deuteronomy that teaches believers about accepting other religions, and fostering religious tolerance in their families.

      Deuteronomy 13:6-9

      'If your brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife tries to secretly entice you, telling you to go and worship other gods, gods of people living near you, or far from you, or anywhere on earth, do not listen to him.You must kill them. Show them no pity. And your hand must strike the first blow.'

      Deuteronomy also cheerfully instructs parents to bring disobedient children before town elders to be stoned to death in a charming passage which goes thus:

      Deuteronomy 21:18 - 21

      'If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not listen to the voice of his father or his mother even when they punish him, his father and mother must take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. They shall say to the elders, "This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard." All the men of the town must then stone him to death. You must banish this evil from among you."

      Conclusion

      Is it a sin to wear women's lingerie? It depends on your personal interpretation of the scripture which underpins your faith. Of course not I, nor any other person can tell you what to believe, and you should feel free to be hung up on the single passage in the entire bible that makes any reference to men wearing women's clothes. Of course, if one is to take that passage and live one's life by it, one should also be prepared to stone their entire family to death should they attempt to follow a different religion, or one's sons if they are constantly disobedient.

        This isn't a double standard. Would you mind fixing the comparison so that it doesn't compare two unlike things?

              That is of course according to the Law of Moses, when Israel is Ammi. Since Israel is Lo-Ammi and has been for the last 2000 years, not even the Jews have to face the consequences you paint so beautifully on the canvas of your imagination.

                Mankind is in a enough trouble with God as it is adding abominations to the mix doesn't help our condition.. Why do you think he said this?

                Deuteronomy 22: 5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
