    Where does it say that Pentecostal women must wear a certain attire?

    The dress code among the women of the Pentecostal churches is a little strange. Where does it say that women cannot wear pants or cut their hair? I can find no biblical scripture to back it up.

    There is no Scripture. Paul says women should dress modestly so as not to create undue attention. Proverbs 16:31 says, "The silver-haired head is a crown of glory, If it is found in the way of righteousness." That may be where not cutting the hair comes from. The pants thing is probably a reference to Revelation where it talks about the end times when men will look like women and women will look like men (I can't find the passage, but I know it's in there).

      Actually there is one scripture the Pentecostals use Deut. 22:5

      yes many falsely calling themselves Christians apply the law instead of using the NT as they should.   they use 1Cor 11:14-15  for the hair

    It is given to them by the men in authority of those churches.    It is totally unscriptural and they are actually very hypocritical in the way they apply it.   It is rules of men in churches of men and has nothing to do with scripture.   We once went to a "pch" church and our women were berated because they wore pants ( temp  was 10 degrees)  yet their music leader wore a mesh blouse with no bra, exposing herself , but that was not a problem to them.     Rules of men have no place God's Kingdom and are only found in apostate churches led by proud men.
    The scripture says dress modestly and that is all it says

    I am Jewish but as a very young woman I was in the Pentecostal church and this is the verse they used to prove women should not wear pants
    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.

    It doesn't. No where in the Bible is it stated. The dress code of the Pentecostal church is man made. And are you talking about United Pentecostal? They are anti-trinitarian and therefore should not even be considered Christian.

      they are a religion of men as are ALL denominations and denominations are an abomination to the Lord
      But being non trinitarian does not make one a non Christian.   Many real Christians reject the trinitarian label.
