Question
Hi Mel and Guyna Horne,

Actually I want to have laser to remove the dark pot and sometimes have makeup. But my question is if had makeup and tell other I have makeup that is not lying, if had makeup and tell others had not makeup is lying. Then how about have makeup and not tell others, is that classified as lying? If yes, then it is not possible to tell all person in the world. I wonder what it is classify?

Please kindly reply.
Many thanks!
Cheers,
Cole

Answer
Thanks, Cole, for the additional information. I hope I am understanding your question correctly now.
There is nothing wrong with having a dark blemish removed as long as you do not lie to anyone that might ask.  It isn't necessary to be concerned about everyone else in the world thinks.  Your concern should be about what God thinks and following Christ's example as stated in the Bible.
Also, unless you happen to be famous worldwide, then it isn't likely that anyone outside your family and friends would notice.

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.  And the second (commandment) is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor (all others) as yourself."

Thank you for your patience,
Guyna

Expertise

Anyone can read the Bible but sometimes it helps to have someone assist with the understanding (Acts 8:26-40). Truth comes from God through his holy spirit of truth (Jn. 16:13, 1Cor. 2:12), which is available to anyone who believes, repents and seeks God fervently and wholeheartedly, with humility, faith and persistence (Mat. 7:7, Deu. 4:29, Isa. 66:2, Jas. 4:1-10, Phil. 2:12). Truth is not limited to, or by, man’s religious organizations, church traditions, popular beliefs or personal opinions (Jn. 8:32, 14:6). We will try to help anyone who is trying to understand scripture or Christian living. [Please do not submit homework questions as they will be rejected.]

Experience

Over 50 years of personal study of the entire Bible (Deu. 8:3, Mat. 4:4, 2Tim. 3:16, Deu. 4:12, Rev. 22:18). B.A. in Theology with continuing studies in religious history and education (2Tim 2:15, 1Ths. 5:21). Years of informal counseling of young adults, teens, couples, and prisoners, based on scripture and on actual life experience in the world outside of classrooms and church buildings and including a long and happy marriage. After years of experience with organized religion, we are non-denominational. Publications: http://thechurchofgodinamerica.com/index.htm; http://www.reocities.com/Athens/Forum/1611/books on God's Holy Days, Lying, the Sacred Names Doctrine; articles on Terrorism and Islam, the Gospel of Christ, Preparing Yourself for Life in the Kingdom of Christ; What Happens After Death

Organizations
Organizations are of men, not God. While God may use some of them to facilitate his plan, organizations train their people to follow, not to lead. God was able to create the whole Creation, as we see it, in only six days, because he did not use a committee. Ten years after 9/11, the only thing approved for construction at the New York site was a mosque.

Education/Credentials
"If a man would teach others, he must first teach himself." - Source Unknown. B.A. in Theology, over 50 years of personal study, the last sixteen of which have been full time study and research resulting in publication of several books and many articles.
