Votes:0 Christianity and Dress by John C. Wenger CONTENTS PREFACE INTRODUCTION I. FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES II. SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS III. COMMON OBJECTIONS PREFACE The Mennonite Church is today confronted with the question, Shall simplicity of dress be maintained? In the final test only one foundation is strong enough to guarantee the perpetuation of this distinctive Christian witness: that foundation is the personal conviction that Christian simplicity of dress is a Biblical truth. Ministers may plead, and conferences may pass resolutions, but the battle against worldliness will not have been won until each believer has decided for himself to live the nonconformed life. The purpose of this booklet is to deepen the conviction of Mennonite youth that the Christian life involves a resolute break with Read More Go to Site
Votes:0 Questions on Islamic Dress and Head-dress for Men QUESTION: We have come under criticism from "Salafis" for keeping Sunna dress in our present day and age. They claim that it is an indifferent and unnecessary aspect of Arabic culture and tradition which carries no reward in religion. What is the position of Ahl as-Sunna on the "Salafi" dispensation for praying, leading prayer, and giving khutba bare-headed and in Western-style clothes? ANSWER: It is reprehensible not to cover the head in prayer if one is able to do so as it is part of the excellence of adornment which Allah ordered when He said: "O Children of Adam! Wear your beautiful apparel at every time and place of prayer" (7: 31). If one cannot afford a shirt or a head-cover, he may pray without them, but if he can, then he is remiss Read More Go to Site

A related story: "The Habit of the Benedictines" Faint voices floated from behind the faded drapes that separated the nuns’ portion of the parlor from their visitors’. On my side, an armchair was stationed in front of the curtains, like a theater set for an audience of one. I could only wonder what was waiting on the other side. And then, with a quick thrust, mother superior opened the curtains to reveal a steel grille. Behind the bars stood several women, swathed in black and looking like a row of Grim Reapers. Their eyes glowed like neon from shrouded faces, and from beneath the folds of their habits, pale arms reached through Read More Go to Site
