Some things never change even after splintering and splintering. Knowledge seems to be stagnate or decreasing.
A question was asked, If we are going to have Friday night Bible Study, what should be the proper clothing to wear? Sabbath dress, casual, or what? Clearly we are coming before the Eternal, we do need to give some regard to that. Being the Sabbath already, what do you do for Sabbath dinner on Friday night? Do you come home from work and just carry on in your work cloths, or do you tidy up and get ready for the Sabbath? I think putting it in the context, helps appreciate that maybe it would be wise to get out of the work clothes and get into something that would be acceptable before the Eternal. When all is said and done, we are asking the Eternal to be present to guide and direct our deliberations, so appropriate attire, Sabbath wear would be more than acceptable for it.Now, you’re at home, what do you wear at home on the Sabbath? When I get up in the morning, I don’t put a tie on straight away, I put a shirt on first, of course. Having put a shirt on, I don’t have to put a tie on do I? First thing at home. I think there is appropriate thought in terms of how do we dress ourselves on the Sabbath day. If we run around in sweats all Sabbath day and just get dressed up to go to services, is that appropriate for us? Maybe we need to give a little more thought on how we conduct ourselves on the Sabbath day, and dress ourselves in an appropriate manner.
