Invisible Uniform

The problem today is that of the “invisible” uniform, the invisible worldview. Very few have eyes to see it. Remember that we are after the principle, and not a dress code, woodenly applied. The principle here is that sons must be taught not to hunger for a source of authority other than the Word of God—which is precisely what the concept of cool is. The problem is not this piece of fabric or that one, but rather a question of the source of legitimacy—is it to be found in the whims of designers and teenaged consumers, or is it to be found in the wisdom resident in Scripture?
