Is there *anyone* who is a believing member that will interpret this change to mean anything but to wear it "throughout your life" meaning 24/7?Reuben wrote: ↑Mon Oct 07, 2019 8:41 amThe temple doesn't instruct anyone to wear the garment "night and day."

The new #13 allows members in the know to sleep naked and wear the garment only on Sundays to keep nosy people from nosing. RR might have stayed if this change had been rolled out earlier.
I think it does feel like it opens a loophole, but I really don't think it was intended to nor do I think any leaders or TBMs will treat it as such.
