Face it... Really... If Jesus were walking around with us today there is a huge, huge amount of our so-called worshipfulness that he’d likely toss aside.
It’s not about *looking* pious.
I don’t think that it is about looking pious—the interior, not the exterior, is what is most important. At the same time, having those who have some sort of care for the exterior things unrestrained by anything than their own whims is both distracting and ends up with little dictatorships of personality running rampant.
