Several former LC sisters have been getting together every year for the last 4 -5 yrs for an informal but wonderful 'retreat'. We come from all over though most are from Texas.

One of the fellowship/prayer items was our concern for how the church -not the LSM church- the CHURCH as a whole is filthy and defiled. So much idolotry/fornication. We prayed for the Lord to sanctify, purify, set apart His church that we would all be pure, spotless, without blemish or wrinkle....

But back to my point...our hearts were in the right place in the beginning. This is why we dressed alike, talked alike, prayed alike. We wanted to be set be sanctified. I don't think we initially dressed alike to be sectarian. We dressed alike because we didn't want to be tainted by the world.
A certain woman went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among thieves, which stripped her of her raiment, and wounded her, and departed leaving her half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way who was on his way to the Feast of Tabernacles dressed in his best robes: and when he saw her, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite also on the way to the feast dressed in his best robes, when he was at the place, came and looked on her, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed to the Feast, came where he was: and he saw her, he had compassion on her. And went to her, and bound up the wounds, pouring in oil and wine and put her on his own beast, and brought her to an inn. Unfortunately the Samaritan got some blood, oil, wine and vomit on his best robes. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, take care of her; and whatsoever thou spendest more when I come again , I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, will appear before the Lord on that great day pure, and spotless, without blemish or wrinkle in robes that are the righteousnesses of the saints?
