Christians In Dress

Bible Studies

1. For each and every Christian believer, what are we to make first and most important in our lives?

 
______________________________________________________________________
1 Cor. 10:31
 
Every Christian should make it his first and supreme purpose to please Jesus Christ in all that he does. When one accepts Christ as his Lord and Saviour, this means that from this time on he is to live, not to please the world, not to please himself, but to live each day as will please Him whom he has chosen as his Lord.
 

2. How should we eat, drink, dress, talk, sing, and act if we are Christians?

 
_____________________________________________________________________
2 Cor. 5:14, 15
 
Being true Christians, we will eat, drink, dress, talk, sing, and act so as to please Christ. The only way we can please Jesus in all things is to see to it that we govern ourselves in all matters according to the principles He has laid down in the Guidebook, the Bible, and not according to the vain customs of the world.
 

3. How should the believer regard such adornments as gold, pearls, and costly cloths?

 
_______________________________________________________________________
1 Tim. 2:9
 
We are to adorn ourselves in modest apparel, and not to adorn ourselves with gold or pearls as ornaments. According to the Bible, our dress should be plain, modest, healthful, neat, clean, becoming, and appropriate. If fashion prescribes any mode of dress that is unhealthful, immodest, or extravagant, Christians should refuse to follow it, but should stand by the principles laid down in the Bible.
 

4. How should the Christian regard clothing that doesn’t proper cover the whole body?

 
______________________________________________________________________
Gen. 3:7, 21
 
Any mode of dress that does not properly cover one’s person is wrong. In harmony with this principle, Christian women should dress modestly. They should not appear in public with sleeveless dresses, or dresses that are too short, or any other form of dress that does not properly cover that body.

 

5. How should the believer regard such clothing as that related to a man?

 
_____________________________________________________________________
Deut 22:5
 
God has commanded that His people shall maintain a proper distinction between the sexes in the matter of their dress.
 

6. How should are garments appear upon us in light of the high calling on our lives?

 
____________________________________________________________________
Eccl. 9:8
 
Our garments are to be neat and clean. The scripture rule laid down in 1 Timothy 2:9 makes it plain that God’s people are not to wear jewelry for the purpose of ornamenting their bodies.
 

7. Anciently, how were the Ishmaelites distinguished as heathen, what did the wear?

 
___________________________________________________________________
Judges 8:24
 
The Ishmaelites were distinguished as heathen people by the fact that they wore gold earrings.
 

8. What Jacob’s household gave up their worship of idols, what did they take off?

 
___________________________________________________________________
Gen. 35:2-5
 
When Jacob’s household gave up the worship of their idols, they also took off their ornaments.
 

9. When the Israelites departed from God what did they do that was similar to the world?

 
___________________________________________________________________
Hosea 2:13
 
When the Israelites departed from God, they decked themselves out with jewelry like the people of the world.
 

10. What specifically did God command his people to take off?

 
_________________________________________________________________
Ex. 33:5, 6
 
God commanded His people to take off all their ornaments, such as earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces.
 

11. What did God do later on with these golden apparels later on in the history of ancient Israel?

 
_______________________________________________________________
Ex. 35:22
 
Latter on these golden ornaments were given to the Lord to be used in building the sanctuary or tabernacle in the wilderness. These texts make it plain that God’s people should not wear rings, earrings, necklaces, beads, or any other kind of jewelry that serves only as an ornament.
 

12. What does God want us to posses as Christians who are looking for the heavenly mansions of gold?

 
______________________________________________________________
1 Peter 3:3-5
 
God wants us to have the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, a pure, kind, noble Christian character, that will make us truly attractive, and which we can take with us into that better eternal world that He has prepared for us. When a tree dies, the leaves drop off, never to return; so when we really die with Christ to sin, and self is crucified with Jesus on the cross, then all these worldly adornments, such as rings, earrings, necklaces, beads, rouge, and lipstick, will drop off from us, never to return.
Let us seek in the matter of our adornment to show that we love Jesus Christ best of all. Let us adorn ourselves in keeping with our profession as followers of the meek and lowly Jesus.

In as much as assignment writing sites and also use custom essays writing service there for the people who have a need or emergency that they would say hinders their doing assignments, I advise against them. You only hurt yourself in the long run as you cannot do what your papers say you can
