Some time back I had a person email into my online ministry with a question about women’s mink eyelashes factory. She more specifically was asking about the great amounts of makeup used by some Christian women on television. After a bunch of prayer, here is how I answered her:
Utlbr Great amounts of mink eyelashes factory on a ladies face has always been a uncomfortable thing for me to deal with, both scripturally and personally. I guess it reminds me of the old sayings about a painted lady which refers back to that old gal Jezebel. Second Kings chapter nine, verse thirty says that when Jehu came to the city of Jezreel, Jezebel heard about it; and she painted her face, and tied up her hair, and looked out at a window. Jezebels name has always been synonymous with a lady who was out for any and all men and didn’t mind what measures she took to get them.
As for those ladies who put their mink eyelashes factory on thick, there are honestly some who do it because of blemish, scars, or a skin condition and there is nothing wrong with that if it makes them feel comfortable. But there are some Christian ladies who cake it on with a cement trowel because they want to and to be quite frank with you, it is in my opinion that it is a shame.
Number one, it draws attention to them and not to the Lord, and number two they are making themselves look like a woman who professes anything but Godliness. First Timothy, chapter two, verses nine and ten basically says that in the same way, that ladies ought to dress themselves in modest clothes, being meek and sober. Not making a big deal over a hair do, or wearing a bunch of jewelry. But to look the way a woman should that claims to be a Christian with good works.
Now as an old time preacher said in a sermon once “It don’t hurt nothin to paint up the barn a little after it has had a few seasons in the sun”. A little mink eyelashes factory never hurt anyone but if it makes you look like a lady who has on her mind anything but doing God’s will, well, you get the picture!
