πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Should Women Wear Makeup?

“In a recent Bible study meeting, a man (of course!) stated that women shouldn’t wear makeup. I feel he is clearly insane and deserves a sound beating. What Scripture can I use to make him see the error of his ways?”

LOL, it would probably be best to spare the rod and share 1 Peter 3:3 with him instead. Speaking of Christian wives, Peter wrote:

“Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel” (1 Peter 3:1,2).

This is the verse that is generally used to teach that Christian women shouldn’t wear jewelry, etc. But if Peter meant to say that godly women shouldn’t wearΒ anyΒ jewelry or doΒ anyΒ adorning of their hair, then to be consistent we would have to conclude that he was also prohibitingΒ anyΒ “putting on of apparel.” Most pastors and church boards would agree that this would be taking things further than Peter had in mind!

So it seems clear that Peter was discouraging going to expensiveΒ excess when it comes to outward adorning, something of which men need to beware of as well. source
