    Agreed... but God is always first and highest above all. And anything connected to Him should be treated with reverence... not like the rest of the world.

    God set a day aside and it points to things that have not happened yet. I don't care what day of the week you think that is... it should be treated differently and always has been, historically, until this modern western revolution.

    I have a calling to fashion. One of the things I’ve noticed in this thread and discussions regarding attire is the absence of grace. We’re quick to condemn and tell others what’s inappropriate instead of setting examples in silence.

    You may notice the clothing but what holds your attention is the godliness you see exhibited in their behavior and speech. That’s the person whose most likely to influence others. Not the one wagging a finger or feeling smug in their truth. Nobody listens to them.

    No. One of the few since, not the only. Not all who are translated, end up in popular books. We prefer to not be mentioned at all.

    But this way is not easy....you must understand death and it's power, or lack thereof, before you are ok with seeing everyone you love "die."......

    How do you make it different apart from going to church?

    That is so true. Dress codes per se should be unnecessary in a Christian environment.

    Can you let me know of someone who never died physically and how you know?

    And do you attend a local church?

    Yes!
    "By this everyone will know you are my disciples, if you love one another."

    Meaning love from all who believe, towards everyone present, unlike the mixed situations outside.

    That's for real, folks. These words aren't just for appearances.

    The only way this would be worth continuing with, is if you will be willing to try and know for yourself. Telling you I'm 1000 years old and you believing me does nothing for you or me.

    We have enough cults you said....I do not wish for you to believe in me.....but only in the one who sent me......

    Seriously, this season people are dying of flu in high numbers, and churches are full of elderly and frail people. Call for the elders, sure, let them visit you at home; but it is not loving your fellow-congregants to expose them to whatever virus you've picked up. If you're really sick, stay home.

    See, I'd call that "business casual." Business formal would require at minimum a jacket as well (a tie for the gentlemen).

    I'm over it now, that was many years ago, I was attending services alone in those days, around 9-14 maybe. I am with a different denomination now, and we don't have those problems (probably have other problems, but church attire is not one of them) Thank you for your kind words.
