Ditto for the drinking of alcohol. They annually lie (via a 5 part sermon series) to their people that drinking and/or dancing are sins.
Then they spare no expense or shame with their variety C&E shows. All shock and no awe, with zero reverence for our Lord.
Also, when the Baptist pastor was too high and mighty to even schedule a talk for 30 minutes, you saw my friends and me kick the dust off our sandals as we headed for loving pastures in orthodox Presbyterian circles.
"Less formal" is the trajectory to Ichabod.

The bible is clear on that subject. I disagree with the church building and perfect dress. The church is the people and not the building. You can teach accurate doctrine in any setting. As far as dress? Dress modestly. Cover up that is it! Leagalism is killing the church and is unaffective for winning souls. No different than the Pharisees.
