Dressing to Unimpress
Contrary to popular belief the purpose of church is to further educate your spirit and renew your faith in God. When people worshipped in temples that had bare earth for a floor and stone for benches they did not bear silk dresses or kahki slacks. Gathering for worship should be a casual encounter and not a date with Christ. I call upon Christians to keep their fancy attire locked in the closet and attend each Sunday with their everyday clothing (if it is a suit, so be it!).
My reasoning for my feelings? A touch of a sense of biggotry with a dash of vanity. We're taught to be humble and love one another. There are those that do not have the benefit of a Sunday outfit and we should not exclude anyone by an unspoken expectation of one. A change of dress code would do us all a little good as church has become too much of a social function instead of a spritual one.
