I agree; it's not whether we dress up or dress down but one's motive for so doing, the attitude in which we come to worship, and whether we are worshipping God or self! This is why our dress may vary according to the culture of those with whom we are worshipping. I feel that the problem has arisen because, as youngsters, we were told how we should behave, but were not taught what worship is and means, and were only inadequately taught what it means to reverence and fear God. Our rebellion against human authority has therefore led to a sinful, selfish attitude towards God and His requirement for holiness.
Rev. Miles, I never said you yelled at church. I said you wanted to...because you were upset with an inappropriately groomed person at a service you spoke at, the piano player was wearing sandals and had a light beard. Here is your quote. "Why do present day people insist upon dressing like bums, hair going in all directions, and men wearing perpetual five o'clock shadows with stubble on their faces? When I see that I want to yell, "For God's Sake either let it grow out or shave!" So, Rev. Miles, you have your style you are comfortable with, and others have a style they are comfortable with. Some wear camel skin and eat locusts, others wear fine clothing and God loves us all. And I have to say a big Amen to Michael Snow.
Rev. Austin Miles
RickD totally misrepresented what I wrote about this article. NEVER have I yelled at a church or threatened to shut down a service over someone not dressing properly. Yet RickD claims that is what I wrote. Check out my response for proof of exactly what I said that is nowhere near the fabricated claim of RickD. That is not only a misquote, big time but an absolute lie. That misfit has problems. Rev. Austin Miles
