TEXT: 1 THESSALONIANS 5: 21-24
1Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22Abstain from all appearance of evil. 23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
Key verse: Genesis 3:21: Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins and clothed them.
Question: Is it proper for a Christian tailor to collect trousers from an unbeliever for
amendment or sew an open-back or show-breasts for unbelievers?
Answer: It is not proper. I appreciate this type of question. Tailors should not sew
any cloth that will make women stumbling blocks to children of God. They are
partakers of the sins of those people. So, a tailor must reject any cloth that does not
conform to the standard of righteousness. Although some may say, ‘If I do so where
will I find my food?’ What shall it profit you if you can eat all the food and go to
hell? Trust God to feed you. He will bring true customers to you or else give you
another business. God can do that.
Comments by questioner: Genesis 3:21 talks about the purpose why God made
clothing; to cover the nakedness of man. However, we are in a changing world and
it seems that most believers are changing with the changing world. Most especially
in this area of the dressing standard of attire. Most sisters used to wear clothes that
covered their nakedness but the new generation sisters now open their chests and
their backs. It has become a general practice that is corrupting the children of God.
So, I want us to emphasize that area because personally it disturbs my heart.
Answer: You have added to it and they have heard you.
Question: Is it advisable to use body cream that is not of bleaching? Is it right to
direct people to those that sell cosmetics?
Answer: Yes, it makes you appear decent and you are not a laughingstock. You are
not achieving anything other than making white skin and crack to look decent and
nothing other than that. Once you know the cosmetic you are directing them to, it is
the wicked type you are not to do that.
Thought for the day: Salvation is free but the cost of discipleship is high
Song for the day: I have decided to follow Jesus
Bible reading for the day: Proverbs 17-18; 2 Corinthians 2
