Your reply is spot on accurate. This sounds familiar when I go into the County building to buy new plates and/or pay registration (when I don’t mail-in on time). The attire, the condition of the security personnel - deplorable; not all, but most. And Church - mostly informal dress but appropriate.

I usually go to traditional services at our church. It is at 8:30 and contemporary is at 11:00. The other day we went to contemporary and was amazed at the number of girls wearing strapless, having their bra strap visible, tight skinny jeans, and one girl in her pajama pants. We don’t let our girls dress like that for any event. Some of the women wore shirts with cleavage abundant. The boys wearing cargo or athletic shorts and t-shirts (one had holes in it) and flip flops. Half looked like they just got up. This big town Baptist Church is a far cry from the smaller, conservative Baptist Church we were members of for 15 years until we moved here.

I know the Lord doesn’t care so much and you may not can afford better (I find that hard to believe as every one of them had a iPhone and iPod), but I see it as a lack of respect for His house and for the other attendees. I find that the elder members turn a blind eye all in the effort to attract members. There is just no effort or pride on most peoples’ part anymore.
