    But I’ve learned to just ignore it as best I can. But women/girls wearing shorts (above the knee) to Church is, IMHO, not respectful.

    As Christians we are suppose to be growing spiritually, and some of these short-shorts are just a disgrace.

    Call it straining at gnats if you like, but I consider it disrespectful.

    “And that the women would also pray with clean hearts, dressed appropriately and adorned modestly and sensibly, not flaunting their wealth.” **1 Timothy‬ *2:9‬ *(TPT)‬‬

    I would add to that last sentence, and not flaunting their bodies.
    When your praise match your prayers, the answer will come.

    I keep remembering when they were going to meet at the Tabernacle they had to wash EVERYTHING, themselves and all their clothing.
    I get that churches today want to take the focus off of what people are wearing and get the butts in the seats, but I'm so with you on this.
    it's not rocket science that if you take what you're wearing seriously you're more likely to take the whole event seriously.
