While it’s obvious that any Pentecost would try to convince the world that true beauty lies in being simple… ‘nil make up’,’no fashion’…..and the list goes a little bit longer….!
I desire to comment on this !!! Having lived both extremes 🙂 that’s funny … the farthest extreme of being fashionable at the tender age of 14 -15 years – to truely No jewel … No cream (18 – 22yrs)
Before I begin, this is a statement I wish to make that I personally follow and in no way would load it on anyone!!! ‘because being legalistic is worse than being an adulteress – Bro. Zac Poonen’ !!!
So what’s simplicity …what’s being natural….!
” protecting what you have and refraining the creation of what you don’t ” Jesse Hmar
Yes, it’s my quote !!!! Protect the beautiful skin you have. If that requires the need to apply cream, cold cream – hot cream ( do you have anything like this :), recently discovered face needs face wash and not soap … ok if you are fine with soap go ahead …. shampoo for hair !!… oil !!! moisturizer !!!! and it goes on…..Then do it men!!!
THESE ARE EXAMPLES OF PROTECTING WHAT YOU HAVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, in order to avoid grinning chins towards me… let’s make the proceeding list small:) – straightening the hair or curling , eye brow plucking, bleaching , coloring etc….
THESE ARE EXAMPLES OF CREATING WHAT YOU DON’T
Now, I would never say that the first are more spiritual than the other or the second a sinner or anything like that. Jesus never judges anyone based on their outer appearances … still remember one thing
‘ never be a stumbling block for these little ones ( weak in faith)’
Above all I say my friends ” LOVE is the GREATEST”!!!!!!!
