Modest Clothing

I think it is some times missed that just because you are dressed modestly does not mean you are dressed appropriately or reverently.  I think this is much like sometimes it is missed that even though you are not doing anything "to have to go to the bishop for" doesn't mean that you are acting properly by long and/or heavy make out sessions.

Examples might include wearing jeans in the chapel or shedding you Sunday clothes the moment you walk in the door from church.


I have struggled for years to understand what the difference between justification and sanctification was.  I found some clarity the other day while I was reading.  Here's what I think the definition of the two are.

Justification is being saved from past sins.

Sanctification is the process of being repeatedly justified, through repentance, until one learns perfection.
