Leviticus 19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh FOR THE DEAD, nor print any marks upon you: I [am] the LORD.

Leviticus 21:5 They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
NOTHING ABOUT DEAD IN 21

do not ignore Genesis 35:2-4, Judges 8:24, Isaiah 3:20, Hosea 2:13, Exodus 33:4-6,
Isaiah 30:22

Nurse man chill dude. You is the bigot because you is intolerant of non cool Chrisians that don't graffiti their bodies, pump weed and drinks into it. I like you man. The body isn't the temple according to you. It's a garbage dump. Way coool man! You is also sneaking some donuts into? Haha bet you is.

\\Earings are for women. \\

Who says? Certainly not the Bible.

In many traditional cultures, earrings are worn by both men and women.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 8/3/13


Francis: Since you are not the "master," Exodus is not apropos to this debate. Leviticus 21:5 deals with worshiping the dead. Again, not what's being discussed here. You are also ignoring James 2:2-4 as well as 1 Sam 16:7 and John 7:24.

Jed, look up the definition of bigot. It fits you well. Your attempt to change the topic, by throwing Muslims into the mix, is disingenuous at best. The fact is you are judging people by how they look.

Who said earrings were for women only? Men have been wearing earrings for centuries. Do you dress up for church? Isn't that "worldly" too? Who decides what is "disgraceful?"
---NurseRobert on 8/3/13


Earlobe hoops, which is what is being discussed here, are neither right nor wrong in themselves.

Dressing in a disgraceful and worldly manner is wrong. Self mutilation is wrong. Also, men dressing in a manner that is customary for women is wrong. Earings are for women.

And as this is a Christian site, you can't expect too many remarks made about mahometans

I wasn't talking about on this site. I was talking about liberals everywhere. They like to call Christians "bigots" because they believe in right and wrong, yet they never call Muslims "bigots" even though they are far more intolerant of what they consider to be sins.
---Jed on 8/3/13




the only thing that is missing from this blog is the word of God:
Leviticus 19:28 Ye shall not make any .. print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

Leviticus 21:5 They shall not...make any cuttings in their flesh.

Unless he has pledged to be a bond servant for life, he should not pierce his ears

Exodus 21:6 Then his master shall bring him unto the judges, he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post, and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul, and he shall serve him for ever

"I worked with a pediatric nurse who, from the outside, looked like a "biker"."

According to your comments about how thugs dress how does this pediatric nurse "look like a biker?" I've seen "bikers" in three pc suits. You and others said we can't determine what people are by the way they dress.

---NurseRobert on 8/2/13


So what kind of dress is acceptable to God?
Well there was a man sent by God who raiment was camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins, and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

I can only image, if here came today. What all you find upstanding Christians would have to say.
Concerning him!

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.

1Co_6:5
---TheSeg on 8/2/13


Let God tell him if you think he's called of God. Also ask him to ask employers if they will hire anyone with ear loops. I think you are wasting your time in telling him he shouldn't get ear loops. While he may love you and respect you, as far as he's concerned you are from a different generation and out of sync with today's generation.

\\No, none of them were thugs. They were corrupt/cons/crooks, but not thugs. Thug does not mean criminal. A thug is much skankier than a crook.\\

Then apparently we are using "thug" to mean different things. When I was growing up, "thug" was a generic word for "criminal" of any kind.

\\BTW, don't you just HATE it when I show you from the Bible how you're wrong, Jed?
---Cluny on 8/1/13

Since you have never done that, I can't say I know how it feels at all.\\

Yes, I have. James 2:2-4 says we should not judge people on their external appearance. Too bad you are not spiritually minded enough to see it.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 8/2/13


Elder, actually I wear either "business casual" or scrubs, depending on my mood. This debate isn't about what employers require you to wear to work, but judging people based on how they look. I worked with a pediatric nurse who, from the outside, looked like a "biker". Long hair, tattoos up both arms, earring, what some would call a "thug". He is one of the most gentle, caring nurses I've ever worked with.

Steveng, James 2:2 is on point. It says you shouldn't judge people by their appearance. Also read 1 Sam 16:7 and John 7:24.

Does anyone know if NurseRobert dresses like Jed described when he goes to work? How about it NR? If there is nothing wrong with how we dress do you perform dressed like that or do you wear a uniform of some sort?
Like it or not there are dress codes everywhere. Does anyone know what the word "uniform" means and why people wear uniforms?
Now close your eyes, clear your mind and just think of the first image that comes to mind when I say........ BUM!!
---Elder on 8/1/13


Cluny, your misinterpretion of the verse is a little skewed. It's telling the difference between a rich person and a poor person. Tattos and body piercings are nothing more than self graification, to impress their friends and peers. Sure, christians must look at the heart of a person, but what was on their minds, in their hearts, when the defaced the temple of God? Remember, the wickedness of man is great in the world today, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart is only evil continually. Ecclesiastes 9:3, Matthew 15:19

---Goofy_Mouse on 8/1/13


Jed, 1. I reject your premise that grandson is dressing like "Satan's people". I choose to acceptable people for what's in their heart, you choose to accept people for how they are dressed.

2. YOU are the one arguing it's wrong, and therefore the burden of proof is on you. You keep dodging the question and again fail to give any valid argument other than your beliefs. You claim people who dress against what you consider society's norms are "thugs" but have yet to tell us what a "disrespectful" thug looks like (vs a respectful thug"?).

You're narrow minded views bring more shame on your religion . I honestly believe if this young man showed up at your church he would be run off.

James 2:2-4
New King James Version (NKJV)
2 For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, 3 and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, You sit here in a good place, and say to the poor man, You stand there, or, Sit here at my footstool, 4 have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts?

Notice that St. Paul doesn't say where the rings are being worn.
---Cluny on 8/1/13


Elder: Thank you for being a voice of reason. God does accept us where we are. But, He loves us so much He doesn't leave us that way.

Jed: Being called of God doesn't not translate into a preaching ministry in a suburban church. If this grandson is definitely called of God, he is obviously young enough to grow Spiritually, and decide where the Lord would have him minister. There are plenty of inner city, thug infested neighborhoods that need all types of ministries, including homeless shelters, soup kitchens, where those he's ministering to won't care if he wore earrings. Plus, God could convict him not to wear the earring any longer, and the hole in his ear lobe could close. Grandmother here should just keep praying.

Nurse, you have failed to explain why it's acceptable for God's people to dress and act like Satan's people. Regardless of how much you play dumb, it wont change the fact that the huge metal grommets in the ears, the sagging pants, the flat billed hats, etc, makes you look like a disrespectful, immature heathen. You're trying to act like you're completely ignorant of social trends and norms, and if you truly are then like I said, I wont hold that against you. God will reveal his ways to you at your own pace.

---Goofy_Mouse on 8/1/13


Jed, you have failed, time and time again, to explain how having tattoos and ear rings makes one a hoodlum. Your bigoted belief system flies in the face of your Christianity. You judge people, based simply on how they are dressed or their appearance, defying God instruction NOT to.

You can't define what a "respectable Christian appearance" is, so you demean what you don't like claiming your opinion instead, that people who choose tattoos, etc, are "disgusting". Then you throw an out of context verse, trying to justify your narrow-minded views.

Read Lev 19:15. There is no righteousness in your judgement.

Poisoned food processors, Ponzi scam artisans, and corporate robber barons--hoodlums all--dress to the nines.

If it's only for appearance, he can put on a fake stretched ear so he can change back to natural, later.

But if he is helping Satan to disfigure how God created his ear, this is not good. Why is he not content with how God created his ears?

Why does he want to do it?

Whose body does he consider his body to be? Does he and his body belong to Jesus and how Jesus created him, or does he belong to Satan's kingdom?
---willie_c: on 8/1/13


What does it mean to be holy? Set apart for God, is the answer. Don't nag about ring in ear. In church, there are so many hypocrites, so many good people, better than me, yet, I have been chosen by the living God. Set apart for God. There isn't none of us too great.
---catherine on 8/1/13


NurseRoberts, are you actually saying that you don't recognize any distinction at all between a respectable Christian appearance and a the look of a disrespectful thug? You are actually so ignorant that you don't know what a disrespectful thug look is? Or do you just not care if people bring shame to your religion by representing Christianity while dressing in a disrespectful and disgusting manner? The Bible also does say to avoid the appearance of evil and to be separate from the world. You don't care about the Bible though.

What do godly people look like? that is really the question. Do they have to eat too much, be tall, short, hair cut in a certain way, dresses to the floor, skinny, heavy, talk a lot, not talk too much?
What matters is the words that come out of their mouths, because what is in the heart comes out of their mouths. If it is the gospel, and God wants to save someone, God saves that person. I have seen some people who don't look all that good to my eyes, yet preach the gospel of Christ with power and the Holy Spirit. Yes, I would not want someone with their pants hanging down and their underwear showing to preach the gospel, but even then God can still work His supernatural power through them.

What are your criteria for "looking like a hoodlum," Jed?

I'm sure when St. Paul and his companions were fished out of the sea, they were hardly dressed to be presented to the Emperor.

After walking miles over the dusty roads of Judea in the Middle Eastern sun, Jesus probably might have been indistinguishable from a desert bandit Himself.

As far as drinking, good manners required Jesus to offer visiting Nicodemus a cup of wine, right?

NurseRoberts, of course looking like a hoodlum is ungodly. God's people should look like godly people. But aside from that, it simply looks ridiculous. It makes the person look like a complete idiot and a loser, and no one is going to take them seriously. If you want to look like that, it's better that you not tell people you are a Christian than to make a mockery out of God like that. When people say they are God's people and then look and act like the world, they only do harm to the cause.

Tattoos and body piercings were once considered a person in bondage by another, a slave, or is worn by people of questionable character as in pirates. It's been a fashion statememnt for the past few years and if you are young and don't have a tattoo or body piercing you are "out of it." And, God forbid, if any child wants to be "out of it."

No loops.

Were called to be separate from the world and not go their ways, (2Corinthians 6:17-20) To not love the things of the world but to love God instead, (1 John 2:15-17) and to be Spiritual instead of carnal. (Romans 8:9)

I think your best chance of success is to explain to him that God's people are to be a peculiar people that stand out in showing forth his praises in their bodies (1 Peter 2:9) shining in a perverse and crooked generation (Philippians 2:15) and to make an example of your flesh to evidence God. (Corinthians 9:27)

But do not condone this ungodly behavior because God certainly DOES NOT! And yes, purposefully mutilating your body to look like a worldly hoodlum IS ungodly behavior. It's NOT what God made him.

Nope. Not even close. God did not create him (or anyone else) with big metal holes in their ears. That's not "who he is", that's something that he chose to do to himself. It's a behavior, not a physical trait. The "just accept him for who he is" comment is never appropriate when you're talking about bad behavior. If she were complaining about his height, weight, eye color, or some kind of natural deformity or handicap then that statement might be more appropriate.

Charlotte, first you have to be able to understand for yourself the contradiction between being called of God and having ring loops in the hears.

Then you have to be able to clearly articulate this contradiction to your grandson.

Can you do so? I doubt it. You have to be able to distinguish what you think from what God thinks. You probably have them confused.

If your grandson is called by God, then God will tell HIM, not you.

In the meantime, MYOB.

Please believe that when I post my comments I am not tring to belittle, condemn or cause problems with my statements.
I have seen many problems for folks who express their views to someone who they think God has "called."
The conversations normally go, "You know God has called you to do...... You wouldn't do yak yak if He called you. You shouldn't do yak yak...."
That causes discomfort that leads to rebellion.
If you think God has called him get into real serious prayer for him. Let God change him.
