Robes and sandals that hid most of his skin. They surely weren't tight and cut well above his knees nor were his sandals the same kind that's worn by hookers and strippers.

Not worried at all. Just perplexed as to why these women insist on wearing this type of clothing to church.

You do know that Jesus purportedly hung out with hookers and such, right? Seems like he wasn't so keen on judging folk, from what I recall from Confirmation...

When I was an inner city youth outreach worker, I had a young man who came to church services at the church I worked for...one of several young black teens in the neighborhood who came to church on their own, without family. This kid, at about 14 years old, showed up at church wearing a bright red t-shirt with a big fedora silkscreened on the front and script that read, "pimp in training." I pulled him aside, explained gently why the shirt was offensive, and he turned it inside out. Now, in this case, the main reason he didn't think twice about wearing it was because he was down to about one set of clothing, borrowed from an older cousin, because his crackhead mom had gotten the family evicted, and all their belongings were thrown out in the street. He was staying with his grandma, and had basically nothing. When I found that out, I took him and his little sister shopping for some school clothes myself. Sure didn't tell him he wasn't welcome with his inappropriate clothes.

Maybe because they think they look good so they see no reason not to dress that way.

Why is it that the same people who say, "God doesn't care what you wear" seem to be the same people who get all dressed up to go out and party?

But I always wear a long sleeve dress shirt with dress pants and church shoes with a tie to church. My grandparents told me to always look my best when going to church. I would wear a blazer but would be overly-dressed compared to everyone else at church, which is sad but true. Called me stuck in the past, but I much more prefer the church wear clothes of the 1940s and 1950s era.

I hate how some people go to church looking like they just rolled right out of bed. It's like some people have no sense of dignity and is a sign of laziness. People unfortantely justify this by saying God just wants us to show up.

No. The aim of the question is are you aware of your own consciousness and motivation when you dress up regardless where you go? Church and party are included. I know this is something a lot of Christian people struggle: do I want to look good for men or do I care how God looks at my heart?

Some people are not aware of how they dress until someone reveals it to them.

I love the way older ladies used to dress, like in the small towns where they would host a bake sale.
Hats and gloves. Kinda miss that!

I love a nude patent leather heel! I would certainly wear that to church.

Thank you. I am pretty tired of that overly-used cliche excuse, myself.
Looking your best for this particular occassion is always going to be important to those of us who value and respect-well, value and respect!
