I tell you, any parishioner who wears jeans to church is going for himself. Anyone who dresses up is going for God. A jeans faith cannot sustain Christianity.

I thought it was the other way around.

Chapter and verse, please? Oh, that's right: You're just making up "doctrines" as you go along, as fundies so often do.
Besides, I have the sudden craving to wear jeans. They're more comfortable than an iron chariot.

It's almost as if these guys expect Jesus to return to the Earth wearing an Armani suit or something. If they had been alive back in Jerusalem 2000 years ago, they would have ridiculed and mocked Jesus' poor, rude cloak.
Now that you mention this, this reminds me of The Name of the Rose, more exactly the controversy about whether or not Jesus owned the robe he wore that was supposed to be discussed before the murders began.

Dressing up makes it easier to hide your gun!
7/3/2007 10:40:38 AM
Yeah, cause it's a well known fact that God actually gives a shit what you're wearing.

The secret is now out - jeans are God-repellant. Just as genes and genetics are.

So dress like the ancient christians, you'll look like modern day muslims with the robes and the head coverings.

So if you can't afford nice clothes, you go to hell.

when stupidity was being handed out, how many times did he get in line?

Jesus wore robes and sandals, had very unkempt hair, and probably looked like a train wreck by today's standards.
Yet there are those who follow him and enact a dress code.

Manos, the Hands of Fate
Vex is a Beta. He wants to be an Alpha, and *really* decide who's In and who's Out, but the Alphas are stringing him along. He hopes that, if he sucks up to them hard enough, they'll let him in the club. Therefore, he insists on meaningless standards and petty rules, in order to convince the Alphas that he is good enough to be one of them. Unfortunately, what they want out of him is the sucking-up, so they'll just keep on teasing him so he sucks up harder.
Just like in high school.

I always suspected Ralph Lauren was of the devil. Now I have Biblical Proof!

I don't know that many people who goes to church in street clothes anyway.

If wearing jeans to church cannot sustain christianity perhaps one should search for a LESS FRAGILE religion?

Everyone should wear dresses like your Jesus and like your priests then huh?
7/3/2007 8:17:37 PM
I doubt that Jesus, who ministered to beggars and criminals, would have cared what anyone wore to church.

"And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the
sons of Levi
, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness."
-- Malachi 3:3 (King James translation)

Because jeans are what?, too comfortable or just are not like the robes exposed in the Bible?
7/22/2007 3:34:55 PM
What if I wear my clown outfit?
7/22/2007 4:21:19 PM
Ok, let's go naked, because with any type of clothe we use, we're going for ourselves.
