For some reason, once sand or chlorine enters the picture, flaunting the goods is A-OK. God must not be at the beach. He probably can't see through the sun umbrellas though, so no worries. Or maybe He changes his standards according to where we go. Or maybe the men (and women) who are turned on by looking at exposed boobs and butts don't go to beaches anymore. Or if they do, they probably don't look. There has to be some explanation.
I've been kind of mesmerized to watch the standards for modesty evolve among Christians. Now, our standard for modesty when it comes to bathing suits is that one pieces are okay but two pieces are scandalous. Well call me prude, weird, extreme, or whatever you want but if you think the pictures above aren't ok, then how is it that you can take more fabric and coverage away and think it's fine? When did a one piece become modest? Even some of the ultra super-duper grandma-esque wraps are less modest than anything that we would even entertain walking out to check the mail in.
These are considered to be modest bathing suits by most people, yet they cover less than the questionable outfits above.
