The Christian Woman And Cosmetics

1 Peter 3:3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 3:5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:

It Is Difficult Today To Know The Difference Between A Christian And The Ungodly. Professing With Their Lips, The Heart Is Far From Righteousness. Jesus Said If You Love Me Keep My Commandments, John 14:15

God Created Humans And Saw Everything Was Perfect But Women Of Today Are Telling God His Creation Wasn’t Good. They Are Making It Good By Their Make-Up And Jezebel Lifestyle!!!

Satan Has Plunged The World Into Great Confusion. Christians Have Lost Their Discernment. Why Would A Christian Do Makeup If The Bible Was Read?

It’s Because Their Bibles Are Closed. If The Bible Is Read,  It’ll Be Revealed That God Hates Such Things And Would His People To Present Their Body As A Living Sacrifice. Free From All Filth. As A Christian, You Shouldn’t Do Makeup, You Shouldn’t Live As The World Lives. You Should Rather Be The Light Of The World, Showing The Right Path To The Ungodly.

“Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

A Christian Woman Beauty Should Shine From Inward. The Indwelling Of Christ In The Heart Produces Beauty Which God Will Approve And Will Be A Savor To The World. You Should Be As Christ Made You To Glorify Him In Your Body.

Your Body Is The Temple Of God And You Shouldn’t Destroy This Temple.

Many will not attend the service of God upon the Sabbath, because their dress would appear so unlike that of their Christian sisters in style and adornment. Will my sisters consider these things as they are, and will they fully realize the weight of their influence upon others? By walking in a forbidden path themselves, they lead others in the same way of disobedience and backsliding. Christian simplicity is sacrificed to outward display. My sisters, how shall we change all this?How shall we recover ourselves from the snare of Satan and break the chains that have bound us in slavery to fashion? How shall we recover our wasted opportunities? how bring our powers into healthful, vigorous action? There is only one way, and that is to make the Bible our rule of life…. CH 597.2
Many dress like the world, in order to have an influence over unbelievers; but here they make a sad mistake. If they would have a true and saving influence, let them live out their profession, show their faith by their righteous works, and make the distinction plain between the Christian and the worldling. The words, the dress, the actions, should tell for God. Then a holy influence will be shed upon all around them, and even unbelievers will take knowledge of them that they have been with Jesus. If any wish to have their influence tell in favor of truth, let them live out their profession and thus imitate the humble Pattern. CH 598.1
Pride, ignorance, and folly are constant companions. The Lord is displeased with the pride manifested among His professed people. He is dishonored by their conformity to the unhealthful, immodest, and expensive fashions of this degenerate age…. CH 598.2
Dress Reform
To protect the people of God from the corrupting influence of the world, as well as to promote physical and moral health, the dress reform was introduced among us. It was not intended to be a yoke of bondage, but a blessing, not to increase labor, but to save labor, not to add to the expense of dress, but to save expense. It would distinguish God’s people from the world and thus serve as a barrier against its fashions and follies. He who knows the end from the beginning, who understands our nature and our needs,—our compassionate Redeemer,—saw our dangers and difficulties, and condescended to give us timely warning and instruction concerning our habits of life, even in the proper selection of food and clothing. CH 598.3
Satan is constantly devising some new style of dress that shall prove an injury to physical and moral health; and he exults when he sees professed Christians eagerly accepting the fashions that he has invented. The amount of physical suffering created by unnatural and unhealthful dress cannot be estimated. Many have become lifelong invalids through their compliance with the demands of fashion…. CH 599.1
Among these pernicious fashions were the large hoops, which frequently caused indecent exposure of the person. In contrast with this was presented a neat, modest, becoming dress, which would dispense with the hoops and the trailing skirts, and provide for the proper clothing of the limbs. But dress reform comprised more than shortening the dress and clothing the limbs. It included every article of dress upon the person. It lifted the weights from the hips by suspending the skirts from the shoulders. It removed the tight corsets, which compress the lungs, the stomach, and other internal organs, and induce curvature of the spine and an almost countless train of diseases. Dress reform proper provided for the protection and development of every part of the body.[For the reasons why this style of dress is not now advocated, read Testimonies for the Church 4:635-641.] … CH 599.2
