What's To Casual For Church?
Posted by Ann Brock
The church of today have "loosened up" there rules and guidelines concerning what's proper dress for church....Now that's Summer right around the corner.... And you have many churches doing what's call dress down for the Summer (casual ).
I wondering how casual can the church get? Now this church generation no nothing but casual dressing flip- flops, jeans and t-shirts... I've been in church all my life and grew up in a denomination that had some strict guidelines about dressing both in or out of the church building... I was brought up to not wear pants to church, no sleeveless tops and that the legs must be covered and no open toe shoes....I no longer embrace that strict rule of dress for church...But. there's definitely some casual wear that I deem in-appropriate and too casual for the church: Any work-out gear that may show imprints of the anatomy... It's too tight and body revealing...Any dress or shirt that show too much cleavage...Men in shorts!I don't like to see men with shorts on in church....There will be some who will take the casual dress to far.
Because I've been train to dress a certain way for the Sunday morning service....Dressing down during the summer is hard for me due to that strict upbringing...Question: What would you consider to casual dress for a Sunday Morning Worship? Is there any Biblical reason women shouldn't wear pants in church?
