Q: Where does on draw the line?? Do we not wear watches with gold colored bands? Does my wife refrain from wearing her wedding set? Do I refrain from wearing my customary gold and silver metal frame prescription eyewear for something much less attractive such as plain black or may gray plastic frames? Do we not wear clothing with metal attached to it? What about ornamental belt buckles for men? What about my aunt who must wear a medical emergency necklace so she will not be mistaken for a drunk if she goes into an insulin reaction?
A:Well have I have a wedding band with four stones in it? You know folks, we are living in the last days, before the coming of our Lord.....we had better start thinking about more important things than a bunch of personal convictions that do not have scripture to back it up. We have set up things as sacred cows, to speak, and esteem them wrong and there is nothing Scriptural wrong with it. Let us get the Gospel to the people......the Gospel of Christ is the thing that really matters. Not if wearing of gold or silver is wrong or not wrong........modestly is still the word. Now holes punched in your ears, wearing excessive jewelry on your ears, neck arms etc. is not becoming to a Christian, but leave the convert alone. Get him/her rooted in the Faith, live the life before them, and they will know how a Christian should look and act. Do not start jerking the jewelry off them before they get up from repentance!!!!!! Why do you think so many people were turned off from the Truth in years go by? Ignorance that is what ran so many people away. Reach out with Gospel and the Love of Christ........do not expect new converts to look and act as people that have been in the Church for a number of years. Babes in Christ....they have to grow in grace and knowledge. DO NOT strangle them with all of your personal convictions and dogmas, but let them obtain a personal relationship with Christ and He will give them convictions.
