Many people indulge in ungodly attire and bodily decoration ignorantly. They do not know that these things are defilement to their spiritual life. Their ignorance does not exempt them from the implications spiritual defilement, Satan’s dominion and captivity, eternal damnation in the lake of fire.
Isaiah 5:13-14: Therefore My people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.”
God is holy and cannot condone any impurity in the life of His followers. Nothing that is defiled can enter into heaven. Not everyone in the church of Christ has the ability to detect every wile or manifestation of Satan. There are people that are enabled by the Holy Spirit to discern the works and ways of Satan, to the smallest
Hebrews 5:13,14:13: For every one that useth unmilk is skilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both
good and evil.
These are watchmen in the church of God, whose calling is to warn the believers against worldliness and satanic defilement. Their ministry is important to keep the believers righteous and holy in the sight of God.
Ephesians 5:27: That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having sport, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
In this book, we have made the message of the scripture and the mind of God clear on ungodly clothing and bodily adornment. This is done to set free the children of God who are trapped by Satan through defilement. This exposition was not done in the spirit of argument, but in the spirit of love and compassion for precious souls of sincere believers whose eternal life is being jeopardized. God’s children hear and recognize His voice. They tremble at His word. The prayer of everyone who desires to inherit eternal life is:
Job 34:32: That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.
Read this exposition in the spirit of meekness, humility and submission to God’s word and you will be cleansed and make perfect. Having read this, see it as your responsibility to teach others in the body of Christ.
2 Timothy 2:2: And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
Chapter 1: WORLDLINESS IN HAIR-DOS
This chapter will examine perming, jerry curl, hair attachment, wearing of wigs, fixing of weave-on, dyeing of hair, haircut and shave. Worldliness is a spirit that works in sinners which makes them fall in love with ungodly fashions. The hair is subjected to
different kinds of hair-dos that are called by many names. The world will keep ringing up new hair dressing fashions to meet the taste of the ungodly, until the Lord comes. Believers who desire to live holy and undefiled life must avoid all kinds of worldliness in their hair-do, which include those discussed in this book.
1.1 Perming and Jerry Curling of Hair
This is generally known as frying of the hair. Perming and jerry curling of the hair came into prominence in the mid 1980’s and were then the exclusives of prostitutes and wayward women. Christian women avoided these and considered them as ungodly hair-dos. Preachers knew that they were evil and worldly. As years advanced and the number of women who permed and jerry curled their hair rapidly increased, Christian women started adopting these hair-dos, with less resistance from the Church.
Today, perming and jerry curling of the hair are not only condoned, but accepted and even encouraged by some churches. There are churches today where both men and women perm and jerry curl their hair. Perming and jerry curling of the hair are a common practice with the blacks that live among the whites or races with curled and flowing hairs. The black women among them practice these in order not to look different or inferior. The scripture reveals that perming and jerry curling of the hair are sins before God and damn the soul to everlasting hell. Many engage in these evils ignorantly, but that does not exempt them from the judgment of God.
Zephaniah 1:8: And it shall come to pass in the day of the Lord’s sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.
