So, if someone is dressing up as Jesus to mock Jesus , then that’s rude. If someone is dressing up as Jesus to emulate Jesus , then that’s laudatory.
The sayings of Jesus are generally considered the more accurate parts of the Gospels, so from this we can assume that Jesus really did not wear such robes. Overall a man in Jesus’s world would wear a knee-length tunic, a chiton, and a woman an ankle-length one, and if you swapped these around it was a statement.
The imitation of Christ is the basis of the Christian religion. Dressing as Christ , doing the things that Christ did and acting as Christ are all acceptable. Taking his name or image in vain would be upsetting to most Christians and maybe a few of other religions too.
What the Bible Says About What Not to Wear. “Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”
Jesus’ name in Hebrew was “ Yeshua ” which translates to English as Joshua . So how did we get the name “Jesus”?
After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to the apostles and asked them for something to eat , to prove that he was alive bodily and not just a vision. They gave him a piece of broiled fish and he ate it. (Luke 24:42-43).
If you’re Catholic, probably not. If you’re agnostic, an atheist, or just have an edgy sense of humor, I say go for it. Be a naughty nun ! As I answered before dressing up as a religious nun on Halloween is not appropiate and should be cancelled out as a costume .
If the clothes are revealing for a purpose, e.g. a nursing shirt that exposes the breasts so a mother can feed her baby, then it wouldn’t be sinful . So don’t flaunt your body, don’t wear overly expensive clothes to serve soup at a homeless shelter, don’t wear a bright red outfit to a funeral, that kind of thing.
Is it a sin to wear shorts in the Bible? No, it’s not any sin .
Families of all different ages attend church and many churches are still conservative, so make sure to dress appropriately. You should eliminate backless or low-cut dresses, spaghetti straps, tank tops, or anything that shows your midriff. Just because it has to be modest, does not mean it can’t be fashionable.
