YOUR ARE LIVING IN THE OLD TESTAMENT NOT IN THE PRESENT THAT'S WHY CHRIST DIED FOR US. NOT TO BE LIVING IN BONDAGE. BUT TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. TO GET TO KNOW HIM IN A PERSONALLY WAY. HE IS MY FATHER.AND HE WILL ACCEPT US THE WAY WE ARE. REMEMBER GOD SAY COME AS YOU ARE.

Im afraid make up makes a woman look false. She doesnt look 'good' with varying colours on her face. My husband loves it when my face is devoid of make up...most men prefer a woman who looks natural and free of make up... A woman who needs to put on a different face before she goes out in public has serious issues.



The Bible clearly talks about Jezebel who painted her face...she was a dstructive woman who lived to entice other men. The origin of make up was so that women could entice men. Read about the origin of make up and what it was for... its quite amazing how far we women would go to be 'accepted' or 'loved'.

In response to Nora, My Messiah came to fulfill the law, not to abolish it. He came to free me from my spirit of rebellion. With his power I no longer wish to have my lust of the flesh but I live in the spirit. True believers will no longer insist that his commands do not apply to them, but they are written on our heart and we obey them without question. He said "If you love me obey my commands". As Paul said, don't use your freedom as a license to sin.

Jamie,



As a pentecostal person, let me approach this from a different view.



Wearing skirts and NOT wearing make up should come from revelation of the Spirit of God. If the Spirit has not led you to dress that way yet, then it must not be time. You will dress that way once you feel the Lord has led you that way. NOT WHEN A PREACHER HAS TOLD YOU TO. Because what is the purpose of doing something if you don't understand it?



FOR EXAMPLE: If I force my 5 year old to be baptized when he doesn't understand the purpose or concept of it - Then he wasn't truly baptized!!! He was just dipped in some water.



The same goes for you. If you don't feel the calling (or understand why) to dress that way - THEN DON'T!!! God will still love you the same until that time comes.

You are taking the word out of context. My daughter wears paints that have flowers on them, which do not pertain to a man, but that of a woman. Also in Matthey 5:29 says if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it outand cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that that one of thy members should perish, not that whole body should be cast into hell. 30 says the dame thing about the right hand. How many people do you know that practice this. Probably very few. I had been a member of a Pentecostal Church for 7 years until I realized I was in bodage and we are not under the law any more.

The Hebrew scriptures including the law on clothing was done away with when Christ died. They are called mosaic laws. The principles still apply which is why so often in the Greek scriptures (latter part of bible) says for women to dress modestly. If we today did as the mosaic laws entailed we would as women have to sacrifice lambs during our menstration. We would have sin offerings. The list goes on. Look it up. Mosaiac laws and when they died!

It's confusing to me as to why y'all do what you do.  I work with a pentecostal fella who doesn't eat on Tuesday's.  We work a physically demanding job, and his fasting causes me and other crew members to "pick up his slack."  If your good book says to starve yourself for whatever reason, I think that's jus silly.  Why should we willingly go hungry even if only for a day, when thousands starve against their own will?  Also, he's "not allowed" to bear skin, so when it's 100 degrees out in a long speed shirt and pants, and he's about to keel over from heat exhaustion, I think to myself how pointless it seems.  We live in a free country here in the united states, which means free will to each man, woman or child.  If you wan to wear jeans, wear jeans.  If you want to wear shorts, wear shorts.  I doubt you'll be put in front of a firing squad for it.

@Jeremy



Well fasting isn't all about starving yourself. Its about depriving your flesh from eating to further your growth in the spirit because remember when we are talking about GOD. We are talking about spiritual its not about what our bodies need because GOD provides the movement in our spirit. If you need more wisdom I would suggest getting on your knees before the LORD in secret with HIM and ask HIM for spiritual wisdom and understanding that only HE can provide and HE will do so being that you believe in GOD as well. (there is much more I could say; but dont have time at the moment about the subject) Also him not showing his skin is because HE is humble before the LORD and we want to do all things in modest fashion. So again I would ask GOD INCLUDING: reading from HIS word and prayer requests also you could go to church but not just any church every single christian church is different its about finding the right one where the WORD OF GOD is brought where the SPIRIT OF GOD is leading the services where people are CHANGED because of GOD being number one in there lives those are places I would consult for more understanding if it baffles you on the subjects because the only way to know is more research and not just online research "seek and you shall find" AMEN. GOD Bless you and "by him all actions are weighed." 1 Samuel 2:3

Actually, that is twisting scripture! The problem with these beliefs (Catholics and Pentacostals) are the strongest, is that they are rules of men not God! Young lady I recommend you leave that cult and go with your boyfriend to the baptist church. I don't mean to sound harsh, but the truth is sometimes hard to see and accept. For example, Jesus' first miracle was turning water into wine, NOT GRAPE JUICE...REALLY?!!! Nowhere in the Bible does it say alcohol is a sin!!! Drunkenness or drinking to get drunk are!!! Gambling, not cutting hair, jewelry, makeup etc. are convictions of man...NOT GODS RULES!!! My wife was brainwashed in the Pentacostal cult from birth, but freed herself, I beg you please use your God given gift of thinking...study the word... Faith healing, falling out in the spirit, speaking in tongues... Hmmm. The Pentacostal university in Cleveland teaches how to speak in tongues... Hmmm... They must have Angels on staff...what a farce... Oh but if you don't do what they say your just not receiving the Holy Spirit... Oh really... Just ask yourself this: what do you think Jesus would say about this?!!! God bless you and remember, religions are not of God they are man made...Baptist or Catholic or Methodist we are all Christians!!! Be careful of the cults... Pentacostals have been around 98 years... Hmmm

Pentecost has not been around for just 98 years   If you read in acts 2:1 (And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.).. And the reason we speak in tongues when Jesus died on the cross that's when the Holy Ghost came therefore we don't have to sacrifist animals anymore. Acts 2:38 states how to be saved (Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.).   If you have to repent then obviously there are things you are not suppose to do its not just except Christ in your heart and love peace and joy there are thing that have to be done. Holiness- to live separated from the world. Not live and do as you please and expect to go to heaven cause then there would be no point in hell. Pentecost is not a cult we don't live in caged places just like one of you said it's a free country EXACTLY therefore I get to live for god and and go to church to worship him at my own free will.  Going to heaven isn't a free ride there are sacrifices that have to be made. Fasting is to keep your flesh under submission so that when you are faced with something your are more capable of making the right choice   Fasting is more for yourself than for god.

Pentecostal is definitely not a cult and not close to Catholicism, by any means. I converted to Pentecostal from Orthodox Christianity (very similar to Catholic) and it does not even compare. Catholicism is full of man made rules and rituals and Pentecostal is bible based. Everything we do has a purpose to it and everything we believe is in the bible or from God. I hope you will realize that there are rules to how we must live to be acceptable to God. We are servants of righteousness, but being servants of righteousness is the same as being a freeman of God (in the bible). The Lord changes our hearts desires (in the bible) and that is why we do the things we do. I love being Pentecostal and after years of searching for the true religion I have finally found it. I encourage you to look into it more and perhaps you will find true love and happiness with serving the Lord, Our God!

I am a young Pentecost girl. Jeremy you won't be put in front of a firing squad, you will be standing in front of the Lord and his angels and the gate. To Serving God: Apostolic/Pentecostal is not a cult. Nobody can show or teach anybody how to speak in tounges, and anyone can call them selves a Christian and not know the truth. If you don't belive what the word says for us to follow then you don't believe in God he is the one that told men to write everything He told them so we follow what He says in the bible. We are not a cult. I really don't understand why people want to leave, I mean my life is a lot happier, I don't get mad or angry, I have a smile on my face all the time, my work place always ask me If I ever stop smiling. I say no because I have Jesus he makes me happy knowing he walks with me everywhere I go. I don't get depressed or sad I am always happy because I let the Lord into my life and my house and my heart. Every where I go people come up to me and say you are very modest and well dressed young lady. your not naked like some of us people here, they also ask me why there life is the way it is and mine is the way it is. Well I let the Lord into my heart, my life and my house,  and He brings me peace and Joy everywhere I go that is why I smile everyday because I know He is always right beside me. Also the world hates the word Truth they can't stand it that's why when pastors preach some people leave the church and never come back or call it a cult because he spoke the truth and it made people mad or hurt there feelings. Well sorry truth hurts whether you or the world like it.
