Immediately one of our newly converted ladies turned to us girls, who were her friends and the same age as her, and gave us a confused look.Later in the hotel room the tight-knit group of the four of us had to sit down with her and explain that their pastor did not preach against it and that those girls were not purposefully disobeying the standards of holiness. Check out this cool You Tube clip by Tiffany Hubba about Apostolic Holiness!) You may have noticed that us Apostolic/Pentecostal girls, and yes even the boys, tend to dress a certain trademark way.I want to lay out the Biblical reasonings for this way of clothing our bodies.We may even be in the same church organization and differ widely in these standards.For example, here’s a little story to show my point!Egyptians wore makeup, and every woman mentioned in the Bible who “paints their face” aka wears makeup was labelled a harlot or, excuse my lewd term, a whore (ex, Jezebel).
Stop wasting time with undesirables and sign up today to meet the conservative match of your dreams!
🙂 Note: We DO NOT HAVE TO DO THESE to be part of the church!
It is our personal convictions and we have found them within the Bible to be true and we want to follow the Word’s teachings!
🙂 Now, a couple of the previous posts in this series (about Oneness and the way to salvation) are strictly set for the majority of Apostolics, but some of the upcoming posts (about hair and holiness standards) really differ with the beliefs of each church’s pastor and that person’s personal convictions.
So I want to stress right now, what I am about to say may not be the exact same guidelines that your female Apostolic friend down the street follows.
