So instead of participating in the other prompts (which were good but just didn't tickle my fancy), I decided to write a letter to a celebrity. Namely, Miley Cyrus.
I am glad to know that you are a Christian, that you know our Lord Jesus Christ. I recently read an interview of you in either USA Today or one of those inserts into my newspaper. You said some things about being a Christian that I think you need to think about.
No Christians don't live under a rock. We live in the real world, with real fashions (unfortunately). And no, you won't go to hell (her words) for wearing short shorts.
HOWEVER, Matthew 5:28-30 says "But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell."
Short shorts, tight clothes, bra straps hanging out - all are tempting to the average teen boy (and too many adult males, too).
I'm not saying that you're not getting into heaven because you wear short shorts (our deeds have no power over whether or not we go to heaven after death; it is only by a faith and salvation from the Lord Jesus Christ). But we Christians still have a responsibility to live like Christ here on earth.
You are not only a role model to girls as Hannah Montana but you are a role model for Jesus Christ. Please dress accordingly because, despite the Vanity Fair and MySpace scandals, a lot of people look to you as an example of a Christian. It would be in good faith for you to do some soul searching (and cover up a bit).
