Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by huxley(m): 11:14am On May 04, 2009
What if your male spiritual leader, pastor, or bishop wore earrings? Would that disturb you? Where would you draw the line? Would you be disturb if you saw you male pastor in female garments?

Watch Bishop TD Jakes in lovely earrings here

Who defines what a man must wear and what a woman must wear.
Re: Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by SeanT21(f): 5:25pm On May 04, 2009
Where in the Bible does it states that a pastor should not wear earings??
Re: Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by huxley(m): 5:31pm On May 04, 2009
It is not for me to rationalise the pastor's wearing of earrings. For all I care, if he wants to wear shackles on his ears or lips, or rings on his dick, that is his business. The question is that why are some Christians so hot under the colar about his wearing of the earrings. Why all the deception from within his camp about the whole issue? Why have his people sought to mislead the public about it. Was there something to hide?

we r definately in d end time.
Re: Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by gen2genius(m): 1:59pm On Jun 24, 2009
You're right, Odedele, we're definitely in the end time, a time when it's the case of ANYTHING GOES. No limits, no boundaries, no moderation, in fact, no difference between a Christian and an infidel.

For those asking if the Bible ever said anything against a male Pastor wearing earrings, what do you understand by the word "effeminate" as used in I Corinthians 6:9?

Soon it'll become "normal" for male Pastors to wear mascara and lipsticks, bangles and bra, and whatnot. God save the Church! cool

It's very interesting. The fact is that if earring is not wrong for women then it is not wrong for men. If it is wrong for men then it is also wrong for women.
In the old testament, both males and females wore earrings, so most christian congregations that believe it's not wrong for their female members have no Biblical ground to condemn any male members that use earrings. Men using earrings is not an absolute biblical definition of effeminacy since both sexes used earrings among the children of Israel.
If it offends you as a believer for T D Jakes wearing earrings, then know that it is hypocrisy if you feel females can use earring.
The New testament stand is that earrings or Jewelry does not serve any Godly purpose in covering of unclothedness like clothes, so it's a mark of satisfyng the desires of the flesh. Earring is not a differentiating mark between the sexes but jsut a sign of worldliness. As it was in the time of Moses, Jacob and the Apostles, earrings and jewelry are used for external beautification, evidence of pride and show off among men and women and no purposes of earrings or jewelry have any relevance in the quest for a holy life. Before it becomes an idol in your life DROP IT.

And Wearing a deodorant has no purpose in the quest for a holy life so drop it. So does combing your hair and wearing nice shoes. You can even strike off waist belts just make your trousers fit and you're on the path to holliness. . .

Re: Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by Duroe: 6:33pm On Jun 25, 2009
There is a function for belts, clothes, shoes, hats or cap. Perfumes too could serve a useful function especially in people with repulsive body odour (a form of disease). What function does jewelry has apart from decoration. Wedding rings are used to symbolise union by some people, what function does earring has than decoration. Even those things that have naturally good purposes e.g clothe, belt, wrist watches, could be used with wrong motives and used in an ungodly way talkless of things that have no innocent / natural function. Human beings like using things that will boost their ego, and to show off. Many women now don't cover their heads in churches especially where their hair are well set. If their hair are not tidy they will cover their head. Some say long hair is a covering for their head whereas some with low cut still go to their churches without head covering.
It is time we stop DECEIVING ourselves and taking GOD for a fool.
God will judge in RIGHTEOUSNESS and He will judge looking at the inner recess of the HEARTS of men not by how we are able to use our head and theology to disannul simple orders set by Him.
Re: Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by Tudor6(f): 8:12pm On Jun 25, 2009
Why do you tie belts since they decorate and make you look good? Can't you use ropes {afterall it serves the same function} or sew your trousers to your size.
Why do pastors wear expensive nice looking suits heh? They could just wear animal skin afterall it covers unclothedness. . .your hypocrisy is blinding cool

[quote][/quote]

When we talk of christianity, we are talking about a life that is set down by God Himself. It is different from what we have ever known and have ever seen. If it appears to be similar to a particular culture, alright then. But know for certain that christianity does not request permission from one's culture or tradition to lay down its principles. God has laid the pattern that mankind should follow and it is binding on every man and woman. If He says we shouldn't wear things that are not meant for us, then anybody who fears God and willing to obey Him will definitely obey. You may not believe in Jesus but you might have accepted in your belief that what counts is one's lifestyle(thoughts, decision, actions, habits, behaviour, character, etc). If these things be the basis for the final judgment, what then do you think that God will expect from mankind? Jesus, the Son of God suffered in the flesh and if any man for any vain excuse remains unwilling to allow this to affect his behaviour, then what shall be the essence of all the pains Jesus underwent? As I stated earlier, whether any culture existed before Christ, does not matter. God existed before frail mankind; He created them. We cannot deny Him His legal power and authority over us.

If you know the gift of God and the things that are made for our peace, you wouldn't post such things. However,we live to instruct one another in the atmosphere of love, having our eternal abode in view.
I want to let you know that there are things that God has given us grace to handle so long as we must remain His children in this world. Common sense teaches us to clean ourselves. If we are reluctant, our neighbour may impress on us its importance. We need to to make use of only the basic things of life. God wants us to trust Him for any other thing, if it is necessary He will reveal it to us with time. But one must basically understand that the earth is just a place on which our eternal reward is determined. How long then do we have in the world to live? Do you know how much God loves you and want you to be properly positioned in the things pertaining to life and godliness?

Why is Inbreeding a sin nowadays? Why can't i marry my sister like father abraham did?
Christians justify the Inbreeding by claiming it was culturally acceptable then but you've come with a whole new angle dismissing this argument. Well done! grin grin
Re: Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by Backslider(m): 6:50am On Jun 26, 2009
@tudor

What prevents you from marrying your sister

Inbreeding is not marrying your sister.

Not untill we shy away from colonial time backsliden christ lliving to one where we love ourselves we cannot make it.
Re: Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by Tudor6(f): 7:13am On Jun 26, 2009
My brother backside to your dictionary and check the meaning of Inbreeding.
It's sex between CLOSELY related people and according to christianity its SIN cool
Re: Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by Backslider(m): 7:46am On Jun 26, 2009
@tudor
I have looked and i dont see where it says Inbreeding equals marrying your sister
Re: Earring-wear Bishop - Td Jakes by Tudor6(f): 8:16am On Jun 26, 2009
So when you marry your sister you just look at her face in the bedroom, no sex?
