Some Basics On Reformed Christian Clothing

The Christian world is awash with teachings on reformed Christian clothing. There are at times confusions attached to some of teachings we may receive on the clothing one can adopt for a reformed Christian cloth wear. This article helps shed some light on the teachings on the appropriate teachings on a reformed Christian clothing.

Basically, we need to note that the choice of a Christian clothing should meet some basic principles of simplicity, modesty, practicality, health and attractiveness. Let us break these down for a better understanding of some of these precepts to avoid further misconceptions.

Simplicity. The general lifestyle call to a Christian is an appeal to adopt a simple lifestyle. The Christian mode of dressing is covered even in this noble call to simplicity. Reformed Christian dressing should be a revelation to the world of our witness for Christ. The principle is to be assumed as a revelation of the person’s love for Christ and not from an adoption of a legal demand handed down to them from the past centuries.
Doing Fashions The Right Way

When we consider the principle of the moral value or modesty of the reformed Christian dress, we must note quite importantly that the reformed Christian clothing should be of high moral value. As such the reformed Christian should choose the wear which will not be arousing the lustful desires of the human person. This teaching or recommendation is based on the biblical teachings according to the letters and epistles done by the apostles in the Christian faith. It must be noted that the reformed Christian clothing will be such that will not accentuate the parts of the body which will stimulate sexual desires. The Christian needs to mind that their clothing will be a power to their witnessing and equally a promoter of moral health.
Looking On The Bright Side of Trends

We will now take a look at the practicality of the reformed Christian clothing. This aspect of the Christian teaching on clothing is one which will cause confusions and some may have the impression of the teaching calling for settling for the cheap, low quality clothing. This is a serious misconception and should be corrected by the practical Christian. The Christian desirous of practical clothing reflecting their reformed views must go for the clothes of high value and practical. Never misinterpret practicality to mean cheapness and inferiority in quality. The higher quality clothing will in the long run prove quite economical.

As a final consideration is the thought of the characterization the clothing will give of the Christian. Avoid the probable tendency to go for clothing which will reveal the pride of life. The clothing should be a revelation of the person characterizing the inner person in the Christian with grace, simplicity, and natural beauty. Therefore the reformed Christian clothing should be that which is a clear steer from worldly display as often seen in the transitory fashions.
