OK Kibrilis! You've got me delving, <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />
Jesus didn't get hung up on all the rules, because he would rather see people loved and in touch with Him, than proper and with no heart. He stayed all over the scribes and the Pharisees because they followed the laws to the "dotting of the Is and the crossing of the Ts", but they had no real heart of worship for God.
in Mark 12: 28- 31 it says:
[color:"red"]28 Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, ï¿½perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, ï¿½Which is the first commandment of all?ï¿½
29 Jesus answered him, ï¿½The first of all the commandments is: ï¿½Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.ï¿½ï¿½ ï¿½This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ï¿½You shall love your neighbor as yourself.ï¿½ There is no other commandment greater than these.ï¿½[/color]
Jesus' first and foremost thoughts dealt with love, not with how people should dress.
But <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> I do believe that Christians should dress modestly all the time (not just at church), because to do otherwise is to tempt others into having thoughts that they shoudln't have. I'm not saying women have to wear the dresses to their ankles and veils over their faces, but modest dress for everyone is appropriate.
And I think it is also safer in this age of pedophiles and rapists, to be quite frank. <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
