Must Wear Suit to Preach

I’ve read the pas­toral epis­tles more than any oth­er por­tion of Scrip­ture except per­haps Jude, but I still haven’t found that elu­sive verse which demands Chris­t­ian teach­ers and espe­cial­ly preach­ers must wear a suit & tie when address­ing the congregation.

Unwashed hands, and even clothes, do not defile the man. Let God’s ambas­sadors speak on the basis of their faith­ful­ness and blame­less­ness and don’t fret so much about fashion.

I’m writ­ing this wear­ing a some­what dusty tee shirt, stained kha­ki pants, and socks that are show­ing signs of wear; feel free to ignore me.

    Amen! I’m pray­ing about going “into the min­istry” and one of the things I can­not STAND is the idea of wear­ing suits. Maybe I’ll buy a robe, sash and san­dals to get REALLY BIBLICAL about dress codes.
