Not that I do or do not believe you, but where can you point us into that ties are pagan? So that there is no doubt in my mind, u know? It is clear jewelry is, and you may be right, but had never heard the tie one. I'd like to see the source of where you draw this from.
Ummm, my opinion...for now is all depend on where you stay and live. My parent doesnt have wedding ring because in Indonesia especially as Adventist its not a complusion to wear it.
But, i think we have to go/back to what Bible Said... is not necessary to have/buy jewelries (wedding ring) with 3000-5000U$.
