Have you noticed that many of the new churches today allow their
congregation to wear pretty much what ever they want to church? Even some

members might arrive wearing jeans with holes in them and flip-flops.

I used to attend this church back in my hometown that had an unspoken
dress code that didn’t allow the women to wear any long pants to church.
Only dresses and skirts that fell far below the knee. The men only wore
dress pants and shirts, or suits with a tie. I really liked this church,
but I was finding that trying to get ready to go was really tough for me
because somehow I could never put together the right clothes! I normally
never wore dresses that length so my selection was difficult at times
unfortunately, even though I did specifically buy the clothes just to
wear to church. Okay I’m not a fashion model or anything, but I just
wanted to fit in!

I admit, maybe it seems like not dressing up might somehow be
disrespecting the Church and maybe even God himself. I have thought about
that, but I really think that there has to be a happy medium somewhere.
If you’re going to attend a church, it seems right or should I say
“proper” to dress in a way that would be pleasing to Jesus. Imagine him
sitting in a pew next to you. Wouldn’t that really bring the appropriate
attire issue into perspective? But my theory is as long as you dress
respectfully and you are there to learn the good word of God, then it’s
what is in your heart that really matters.
