THE FIRST FOUNDERS AND INVENTORS, RECORDED IN THE BIBLE, WERE UNBELIEVERS
I just read this very funny post saying that women who wear high heels are ungodly. His words: “A Christian woman who like wearing high heel shoes is married to the world; she may be in the church, but her soul is in the world. You will NEVER see a godly, chaste and modest Christian lady wearing high heel shoe.”
I sincerely didn’t know that high heels is an issue until now, when a screenshot of someone’s post was sent to me. I’m really amazed! So virtually everything is an issue in the Christianity that some people are practising! If men were God!
I read the comments: I tried to understand why high heel shoes are “bad”. The only thing I saw is that the first person who wore it, Marilyn Monroe, was an unbeliever. So that makes it bad? Wow!
I remember while growing up, blue jeans was not supposed to be worn by Christians. ? No one says that anymore. I wonder who comes up with these things.
What these guys don’t know is that the first founders and inventors recorded in the Bible were “unbelievers”, descendants of Cain, a cursed murderer. See list below:
1) Cain founded a city, which he named Enoch, after his son.
2) Jabal, was the first to raise livestock and live in tents.
3) Jubal was the first of all who play the harp and flute.
4) Tubal-cain was an expert in forging tools of bronze and iron.
As if that is not enough, King Solomon built the temple of God using unbelievers – the Sidonians. He also used Huram for the furnishings. Huram was also a native of Tyre. Solomon used the very best workers. Do you understand? Expatriates. He wasn’t sentimental or biased. He went for the very best; he sought quality and excellence; and it didn’t matter to him whether they were Israelites or not. Yet God loved the temple Solomon built for Him!
Understand this: the fact that something was first used or made or invented or founded by unbelievers doesn’t mean it’s from Satan. Who gave Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar revelations about the future? God! And they were idol worshippers! They themselves were worshipped. Yet God chose to communicate through them.
Some Chriatians want to live in complete isolation, in an attempt to be holy. Let me remind them of the Scriptures. Here’s what Apostle Paul wrote: “When I wrote to you before, I told you not to associate with people who indulge in sexual sin. But I wasn’t talking about unbelievers who indulge in sexual sin, or are greedy, or cheat people, or worship idols. You would have to leave this world to avoid people like that.” 1 Corinthians 5:9-10
Some “holy” Christians need to leave the world! ?
Things are not unclean because they were made by unbelievers; things become unclean because of what they have been dedicated to. True, some things were not originally made for good purposes, but for sinful uses: such should be avoided as much as possible.
May we be free from the bondage of ignorance.
