…And Let the Church Say "Amen"!

Church Attire: Does it really matter what you wear to church?

Filed under: "Think" About It! — Kitina @ 9:52 pm


I grew up in a Holiness church (Pentecostal or Apostolic for those who don’t know) and it is a very strict standard in your dress, manner and more.   However in today’s church those standards have been relaxed, so much so that recently I have seen some questionable outfits in the pews.


Short shorts, mini-skirts, leggings, severe cleavage, very tight jeans and well you get the idea.  Well that brings me to my question.  Do you think there should be a dress code in church or should everyone just “Come as they are?”.

  1. Interesting question you’ve posed. Personally, I think it would be ideal if we didn’t have to worry about what we wore to church. In fact, I like the whole idea of “we were born naked, God made us this way, let’s go to church naked”. (Have you heard of nude churches?)
    However, the society humans have manufactured deems it inappropriate to strut around naked in most places, let alone in church! And the naked body has been so “sexualized”, that even if we decide to be fully comfortable with going to church naked, the majority of people would probably make us feel really weird about it.
    So, because of the current state of society, I am personally quite happy keeping my clothes on (and respectful, slightly formal clothes, to be specific) when frequenting any place of worship.
