Hi Haley, I enjoyed reading your response. I also agree that is very important that we understand the history behind a denomination or why a person decided to pursue a certain tradition over the other. In the Indian culture, cultural traditions are weaved into faith in certain ways. Indian churches will encourage attendees to wear formal Indian wear to their services. Though it is not Biblical, it is also not harmful, which is why these nuances exist. Culture is important and Faith is obviously important too. It is a wise choice to understand all perspectives of these decisions and to always pray that God helps the church maintain a healthy balance between culture and religion. God Bless.
