I'd view that differently. I expect a successful realtor to be able to afford to dress nicely, I'd assume that a realtor that shows up in a goodwill special isn't very good at his job. God doesn't care how much money I make.

Casual dress doesn't bother me so much as people carrying coffee into a service but no bible. Make a minor sacrifice and leave the latte in car.

50% of the people didn't used to be obese, and made an attempt to not be. Used to be people didn't wear their pants down at their knees to show off their underwear. People didn't used to pay double for jeans faded and ripped to shreds right outta the store. Society is simply going downhill at a fast rate.
Personally, I like to wear camo cuz it makes me feel pretty. laugh

That would be okay with me; probably wouldn't even notice.
However, the realtors that really make me gag are the women with the bleach-blond big hair, lots of bling, and the leopard print blouse or skirt.

We dressed up for church when I was a kid. I now wear jeans, nice shoes, and a dress shirt. Half in my church are slacks and shirt. Half are jeans and a buttoned shirt. But, I've on occasion work a T-shirt if I was taking my teen Sunday School class somewhere after church.

I prefer casual. The un-churched already think we think we're better than everyone else. A jacket and tie just perpetuates that image and keeps people away. I wouldn't join a yacht club that required jacket and tie just because I'd figure that I wouldn't fit in. I'm not jacket and tie people. I don't want to keep anyone out of church for the same reason. If they come in sweat pants and a wife beater, I think we should be glad they've done the scary step of coming through the door.

From dealing with black churches I've learned that the "Sunday best " was just way to flex on eveyone in the church. Fancier you looked the higher up the food chain you were. Was noting more then a status symbol. After experiencing worshipping the Lord in the army and some real down to earth churches ( only times I can say I really felt something) I refuse to get all gussied up more then a nice button up and a clean pair of jeans. Was told a few times it looked bad on my family because it made it seem they couldn't afford to dress me better. Refuse to play into that kinda mess

the west coast most people stopped dressing up for church sometime in the 1970's. People became aware that God is interested in what is on the inside of a person; not what is on the outside. It's been a long settled thing in this part of the Country that people don't give casual dress in church a second thought.

I believe what is on the outside is a reflection of what is on the inside. It has to do with respect. It is part of our culture. If jeans and a t-shirt gave thae impression of respect I would wear them, but they don't. If you are casual in your dress maybe you are casual in your belief system. If I was out of town and didn't have the my best clothes with I might attend church. But if I have my Sunday best then I prefer to wear it because it shows my respect for the Lord as that is what our culture has done for generations.

Let's see, 50 to 75 dollar pair of slacks, 35 to 50 dollar button up shirt, and a 25 dollar tie.

Most people can afford to "dress" up for church if they put their mind to it.

Call me old-fashioned but I believe it's a sign of respect.

But then again I dress that way for funerals, weddings, graduations, my kid's awards banquets and the list goes on. It might be the same couple of pairs of pants and shirts but I believe it's better than jeans or God forbid(pun intended) shorts or sweatpants . Again I guess I'm old fashioned.

I reckon if you have the means go ahead and dress up for the Bridegroom. If not, I reckon He will be glad your there.

Most of my church background is pretty conservative. I'm still trying to wrap my head around electric guitars and drums backing up the choir.

I've never been to a church that used anything other than an organ. Except maybe for Christmas specials where someone might have an acoustic guitar. But I'm pretty sure I wouldn't care for electric guitars and drums!!

I'm of the belief you should dress up, at least somewhat. I'm not saying suit and tie and dresses are mandatory, but at least a nice pair of slacks and blouse/dress shirt.

We used to dress up growing up in church. I've been to all kinds. Now I go to church in clean jeans usually.
I don't think God cares.


Right now Im having amnesia and dj vu at the same time. I think Ive forgotten this before.

Used to go to church right from the trap line. Most times stinky and sometimes skunks, gave setting in a pue a whole new meaning. I was generally working out of a dry camp somewhere.

Regarding t=shirts: We had a fellow coming a few years ago named Daryl who felt really dressed up in a tucked-in t-shirt. Good for him. Anyway, at one point the guy who was in charge of one particular service asked Daryl to come to the front and receive an offering. We were receiving a missions offering so the superintendent took a couple minutes to explain who the offering was going to, how they use it, etc. The whole time Daryl is beaming as he faces the audience awaiting the speaker to send him out. He is wearing a t-shirt that says "Does this t-shirt make my bass look bigger?" with a picture of a fish on it. In tucking in his shirt, he had a wrinkle that covered up the "B" in bass. It was startling to me & others until I figured out what the shirt really said. He sure was proud standing there though.
