I will answer this question concerning myself. I would not wear earrings in my ear or a cross that is filled with diamonds. The reason is jesus suffered so much for me and when I see a picture of jesus bleeding on the cross, I have my answer and to me it's a big no. Please understand this is what I feel, no judgment here. God bless
Fashion trends and styles come and go so we come to Christ as we are. The Holy Spirit indwelling us changes us more on the inside than the outside. Developing the fruit of the spirit becomes or should become our primary goal. As we notice unbecoming habits of speech or actions, we should encounter conviction to change. This may or may not include our outer appearance. The way we dress may have been determined by our desire to seduce the opposite sex. This would no longer be a desire of a born again child of God. Desiring a born again mate for marriage and a family would or could become a normal desire of any young person full of vitality. After all God himself gave us a desire to procreate but within his guidelines of correct steps in doing so. The fruits of the spirit are love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, meekness, gentleness, faithfulness, and patience with self-control. Galatians 5:22-23 It will save you a lot of grieve, stress, arguments and sorrow in life if you and a possible marriage partner master this before marriage. If it were not so I would tell you nothing. Pastor Jay
Every question asked here today can be answered with one verse. Galatians 5:1 Stand fast in the freedom we have in Christ Jesus and not under a yoke of bondage. Everyone has different convictions about things that are not hard and fast rules in the bible. I can make everything sin, or I can excuse all sin by my own convictions. We are not to judge others in what they do, and we are not to let others judge us in what we do. As long as it is within Gods will for us. Our sin debt is paid in full, and we can no longer be condemned, Romans 4:5-8 and John 3:18, but we can be chastened by the Lord as His children. John 1:12. First John 1:8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive our selves and the TRUTH is not in us. We are all sinners to a degree, because we can not be made perfect in the flesh. That is why Jesus had to die for us. AMAZING GRACE, JESUS PAID IT ALL AND WE PAID 0. It is free, or not at all because no sinner can pay his own sin debt. Romans 4:5-8 Remember, when you are pointing your finger at someone else, you are pointing three back at yourself
