# 00604 :  gold v/s costly dresses
nowadays it is much said and discussed about the wearing of gold ornaments among the christians.brethren preach and teach not to wear ornaments of any kind.but those who preach against ornaments are seen to be wearing costly clothes(not to mention the watch,spects,and shoes they wear).i think Christ didn't mean to hurt as much as the preachers do these days......

Dear "s4steve" ,

As you've written , " those who preach against ornaments are seen to be wearing costly clothes " .
Firstly , everyone who preaches dont do that .
There are exceptions !!

The BIBLE commands us to avoid those , who cause offences & divisions contrary to the doctrine which we have learned .
(Romans - 16:17 ) .


Then wearing ornaments (precious stones , pearls , gold ) is not right according to the BIBLE .
In the New Testament ,
the WORD OF GOD commands us to not dress ourselves with them .
But with gentleness & simplicity .

GOD never wants us to put up some other things to increase or elevate our worth .....
because we are always PRECIOUS for HIM !!


And wearing costly clothes , is another story .
Some prefer them , because costly things last longer and are good .
Some prefer because it stands for their status symbol , as thought by many people !!


The truth is that , everyone has a different point of view :-)


I just believe that ,

If our conscience doesn't allow us to do a thing ;
If our heart stops us from going in a way ;
If our mind doesn't give us allowance for a particular thing to be done ....

Then we should NEVER DO THAT !!

Thats how i go forward in my CHRISTIAN life .

And if one is a true believer ,
a sincere child of GOD ,
then surely GOD will put up HIS thoughts and ways in his/her mind , and everything he/she does will be purely according to GOD's will .

To be continued ......

" ONE SHOULD ALWAYS FEAR GOD AND LIVE HIS/HER LIFE " .

" EVERYTHING IN A CHRISTIAN'S LIFE SHOULD GLORIFY GOD ,
AND EVEN HIS/HER OWN LIFE SHOULD ACT AS A GOOD EXAMPLE IN FRONT OF OTHERS " .

We should be an INSPIRATION for the other people ,
and our lives should teach others how to be honest and upright and how to lead a life which is acceptable to GOD & pleasing in HIS sight ".


This is what GOD wants from us .

Living a dual character ,
bearing a portrait smile ,
giving a void shake hand ,
having a feelingless heart ,
is not for a true BELIEVER !!

One should care about his own living & life style and go on further with it .

We need not judge others !!!!
We are NO ONE !!


Let us be " TRUE CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS " ..... and not just lead a " PSEUDOCHRISTIAN LIFE " !!!


BIBLE says ,
" Let him hear , who has an ear ".

Its the same concept here also !!


Let us be FAITHFUL & FLAWLESS before HIM ...... as HE is !!

NO ONE should ever raise a finger against us , as long as we live in this world !!


Let us just look at ourselves and towards GOD .


Thats all i would like to say regarding this posting !


With CHRISTIAN GREETINGS :
Sharon :-)
