While food for thought, much of the arguments against earrings and, indeed, make-up are based on the teachings of the early church fathers, not the actual Bible. For record, I do not have any piercings, but it is not for the above reasons. In calling those who wear earrings or make-up "wicked", do you assume that no-one who wears such things can contribute positively to the kingdom of God. I fear that you are adding to the gospel, not highlighting its intricacies in regards to these issues. A stark warning against adding to the gospel can be found at the end of Revelations. Additionally, while I abhore liberalism, this article is devoid of love. 1 Corinthians 13 has a warning about that one too.

Thanks for your comment Rae.
> do you assume that no-one who wears such things can contribute positively to the kingdom of God

I think Phil. 1:18 addresses this: "The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. (NIV)". In addition, there are some recently converted people who might wear such things for some time but they don't sin knowingly (Heb. 10:26).

Tobi, things often look contradictory to people, which is one reason there's an endless number of sects in the world. Ruth, this page focuses on earrings. Watches and wedding rings are out of the scope of this post.

Earrings were dedicated to God. Ex 35:20-22. Earrings were used as a trophy of war dedicated to God Num. 31:48-54. God adorned Israel with earrings.Ez.16:1-14. The misbehaviour of that person in Ez as quoted by you is to be condemn not the earrings . God Himself was the one that adorned the person not with the earrings alone but with clothes. Pls read between line from the first verse. However, if earrings are condemned on that basis then wearing of clothes and other attires should equally be condemned. Aaron used the rings and form the golden calf is a good point. One particular thing can be used as a tool or instrument and can equally be used as a weapon. The fact that it can be used as a weapon is not an inference to condemn the total use of it as a tool or as an instrument.

"They were never meant to be put on the wives!" I missed the point. Why are they sin if wives use them but when sons and daughter use them its fine?
Sun, 19 May 2019 15:38:46 +0000
Exo 33:5 For the Lord had said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites, ‘You are a stiff-necked people. If I were to go with you even for a moment, I might destroy you. Now take off your ornaments and I will decide what to do with you.’ ” Exodus 33:5 if you read from Verse one, you will understand that God asked dem to remove their ornaments bcos he was not happy with dem and he needed them so he will know what to do to dem.bcos so many passages made me to understand DAT ornaments are a sign of beautification( adorning)especially Ezekiel 16.1- end. God didn't want to see anything adorning on dem so he could give dem his heart deserving punishment.probably when he was done with dem, they could use dem again and be adorned as he wants dem to be. He never said throw dem away , or give dem as a burnt offering or sin offering. Or there about. If my God will tell Ezekiel how he loved Israel and decorated dem in the spiritual, how much more the physical. Or is it not said DAT the spiritual controls the physical??
Sun, 26 May 2019 18:04:48 +0000
Dear Friday, Crystal: you can read more about the Ez. ch. 16 from the link on the left; read the Targum Ezekiel carefully.
Reikster, the huge difference is that the sons and daughters were not decorating themselves, but were decorated by others; which is how the Holy Spirit spreads: one can't get the sins forgiven by himself with the work of his own, it's not a work of a man. This is how the spiritual tabernacle is being built: (Ex.35:22, Heb.9:11), it's clear the treasures signify the spiritual meaning.
Fri, 31 May 2019 11:47:58 +0000
Don't you think GOD in Ezek 16 was using what the world see as beauty to describe His spiritual glory on Jerusalem. Jerusalem is not a woman. Was. I believe it was not a physical materials.

Fri, 19 Jul 2019 17:24:18 +0000
No matter what the issue maybe, God says to dress modestly. Which means not decorating yourself, wearing tiny clothing and sexy shoes. Keep your selves from leading the minds of others to sin in lustful thoughts. If you make others sin in lustful thought you are also committing sin too. Don't put the stumbling block in front of others so they fall. Guys and women get turned on with the tiniest things, everyone should be careful how they present themselves.

Olugbenga Samuel:
All things said. Jewelry means plaything. And when one becomes a serious Christian he or she have to do away with those "playthings and concentrate more on meditating, living and preaching Jesus. Lastly we all know that we Christians regardless of tribe or race are Children of Abraham, descendants of Israel by faith. Knowing that,we are supposed to live and abide by the laid down principles of God for the Israelites and one of those is found in Exodus 33:6 which confirms that "EVER SINCE THE CHILDREN OF GOD LEFT MOUNT SINAI TO GO INTO THE PROMISE LAND, THEY NO LONGER WEAR JEWELRIES. So every Christian should immitate this whenever we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and leave the dressings of Jezebel the mother of Harlot. Thanks, I pray that this message will change many Souls to concentrate more on inward ornaments which is most important to God and the sole dictator of our outward look. In Jesus Christ mighty name I pray.

Melody Ellysse:
Of course the sinful nature & desires is us will resist and refuse to acknowledge that which would condemn what we cherish. Therefore, only the Spirit of the Living G—d can bring conviction to the heart. But I want to make this point. In Eden, after man had fallen and pronounced himself naked, God clothed them himself with the skins of animals. Were anything further necessary He would have provided it then. Thus in light if this we see that Ezekiel 16, which seems irrefutably evidence FOR the wearing of here let, has to be symbolic & figurative.

Earring and jewels:
It is interesting to see how people misunderstand the Bible, Jesus didn't come to condemn our cultures ,just to give us a change of heart Decorating, braiding, and whatever you may call it have been in existence since before Christ Author ,no disrespect do your research with an un biased mind Do not wear any form of jewelry or adornments like cloth ,watch, ring etc if you say it's a sin You're just hand picking the Bible, adding what you feel is right and removing others In Jeremiah, you refused to see the full message of that book and how it relates to Jerusalem I have said enough ,the problem is you've been so manipulated to think your views are from God, it's not your fault ,just be open to learn even the Bible says the children of the world are wiser and that's because children of God refuse to know more

Dear Author, please can explain this Bible verse to me and to all people on this page so we can understand it better. Exodus 35:22, (Ezekiel 16:1-24 especially vs 17) Isaiah 3:16-24. Numbers 31:50. thank you

Just me who doesn't believe that wearing earrings is bad, in fact is good:
Dear Olugbenga Samuel: Stop deceiving people with your wrong translation of the Bible. Exodus 33:6 which confirms that "EVER SINCE THE CHILDREN OF GOD LEFT MOUNT SINAI TO GO INTO THE PROMISE LAND, THEY NO LONGER WEAR JEWELRIES. trust me that translation was given to you by the demons in the pit of hell to deceive the Children of God. did you know the reason why God asked them to remove their JEWELRIES..by the way God never said or let me say Bible never said they NO LONGER WEAR JEWELRIES....If God told them not to wear Jewelries in Exodus 33..who then were the offering Jewelries in the same Exodus 35:22...If God said no more Jewelries...why did God said this in Ezekiel 16:10-12...what about Isaiah 3:16-24. Remember Exodus was before Ezekiel and Isaiah and everything that happened in Ezekiel and Isaiah was after Exodus have come and gone. My question to you s this....how can God told them to stop wearing Jewelries in Exodus and still bless them with jewelries? Ezekiel 16:17 you will hear God saying what his people have done....VS 17..Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them, Read that very well...Thou hast also taken they Fair Jewels of MY Gold and my Silver...( whose Jewels of God and Silver? this is God speaking. indeed God never hate Jewelries. You guys should stop this false teaching, read the Bible and asked the Holy Spirit to interpret it for you ans stop interpreting it on your own. Thank you
Wed, 13 Nov 2019 19:01:01 +0000
Dear "Just me who doesn't believe that wearing earrings is bad, in fact is good", I added the explanation of Ez.16:17 on page "Church fathers on earrings", below Martin Luther, his commentary on the first twenty-two Psalms p.238,239. See the spiritual focus at the age of reformation related to the chapter in question.

Soyombo Gabriel.:
I followed all the arguments here succinctly and I can not agree less with the author. To whom does our dressing glorified? Who do we impress by our mode of dressing? Should the pattern of dressing take after that of Jezzebel the progenitor of prostitution? All these questions should be resolved in favour of Godliness and righteousness. Placing jewelries or according it a preeminence is a demonstration of wordlines and it a deliberate A t of of promoting the world system. I ask, what was the intention of God in Genesis 35 vs 1-5? I think that SCRIPTURES settled the matter completely as be construed to be that jewelries is forbidden to all those who classified to be Christians

Child of the most high Adeniyi:
The word of God is clear that ornament of any kind is forbidden, disobedience is a sin, are people not still sinning, ornament of any kind is a sign of worldliness. Going to the beginning of wearing rings in Egypt. Exodus 21:6 “it a sign of bondage and if you look it very well in this context earring is even meant to be worn by male-slaves” following Genesis 35:4 and according to psalm 16:4, the reward is crystal clear!
Sun, 01 Mar 2020 08:44:24 +0000
Romans 14:21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor anything whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended or is made weak. It's all about dressing appropriately such that one does not stumble. If one thinks to put on earrings is in her circle of appropriate dressing and would not cause thy brother to stumble, she should wear it. If she thinks to put on earrings will cause people to stumble, then she shouldn't IT'S ALL ABOUT ENSURING THAT ONE DOES NOT STUMBLE SALVATION IS ABOUT BELIEVING, BEING BAPTIZED IN JESUS NAME (INTO CHRIST'S DEATH) AND RECEIVING THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Paul choombu:
These are mere issues the devil is using to divide the church. They are just doctrinal settings from pieces of the scripture that do not actually temper with the life we are called to live. See things that defile a man;evil thoughts, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lascviousness, evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness, fear....Mk.7:21-23;Rev.21:8; see also the works of the flesh i Gal.5:19-21. These are heavy issues that matter and can not be broken. Have you also seen the less burden the Holy Ghost used the church father's in Peters time to lay upon the gentile Christian's? That we abstain from meets offered to idols and from blood, and from things strangled and from fornication...Acts.15:28-29.Look at also some core christian values I Matt.5&6: The beatitudes and others. Let us imitate Christ and stop condemning ourselves with denominational doctrines that heaven does not even recognize. Iam not an advocate of all forms of immorality and evil appearances, but just concerned about the unnecessary divide on things that does not count.
Tue, 26 May 2020 23:34:45 +0000
I really agree with brother Paul Choombu, but dear author you said it's not sin to the side of the daughters and sons because they are decorated by someone, OK. please will it be a sin if the wives are decorated by their husbands?
Wed, 03 Jun 2020 12:54:52 +0000
I do believe that we shouldn’t wear adornings for obvious reasons but this article seems to go too far. To say that women who do things like wear earrings are actively participating in pagan traditions and therefore are “wicked” is way too far. I’d say these people don’t have any bad intentions and truly want to serve God. You say that earrings and makeup have pagans origins with symbolic meaning, but the symbolic meaning had completely changed over time in MOST cultures. Also some of these verses are taken out of context. Back then people wore those because of those false gods, it’s not like that anymore. The only reason i agree with not wearing makeup and earrings is because when those things are taken away they cause self-hate- they are worldly. But as for paganism and participating in idolatry? You said it yourself that they held symbolic meaning and therefore were bad. so if the symbolic meaning now is drastically different, then there’s definitely a difference and God knows we would ever worship such false god’s
Mon, 15 Jun 2020 20:05:02 +0000
And in all of this we all miss the point again. God is interested in our hearts. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. Focussing on external stuff is pointless and leads people away from Christ. Arguing about what is irrelevant to eternity only forces people away from the Truth. I would rather people be covered in tattoos and piercings and be forgiven from their sins than "spotless" and sqabbling over nonsense and lost in sin.

God loves you all that's while His bring all this to your remembrance. Please yeard to His Word, and for go all appearances of evil,as in worldliness. Is ornament being use in heaven? If no, why can't you forsake it! Because it has become an idol in you that's why you can't accept the true Word of God. Remember! The bible may hurt you with the truth but it will never comfort you with a lie. Conclusion, by putting all those things you tell your maker that you are not made beautiful, that is why you attach/adorn yourself with all those things. Keep your heart pure,and present your body as a holy living sacrifice unto your God. God bless you all.

You must read the Old/ New Testament. There is no where in the bible that states if you wear earring you will go to hell! If you say that wearing earrings will lead someone to hell, than you will be hell bound for judging! Jesus said, judge not!!! We should be worrying about "Soul Salvation" and not condemning a person based on what they wear! If the Holy Spirit has not condemned the individual leave them alone! We should not make our gold or anything else our God, there is one and true God, God the father!!!

All I can say to this is that if you are not convinced. Ask the holy spirit to reveal the his mind to you concerning issues like this. He will do just that. But don't interpret bible to suit yourself. The word of the Lord says. There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death. Prover 14:12
Sat, 15 May 2021 18:19:16 +0000
Something you apparently believe is so incredibly important, but not mentioned at all in the NT. The OT was God building His people to bring forth Christ. The NT is God building His church. The Apostle Paul, Luke, John, and other writers of the NT were inspired to write the books of the NT. Inspired by God himself, and earrings were not important enough to say anything about. I think you are making far too much of an issue of them, and pushing away the "wicked" who happen to wear earrings. (unmarked and unpierced myself, but mostly because I am cheap, and just don't care) PS. Seriously??? Do you seriously think that the God of the Universe, who in both the OT and NT talks about the heart over and over and that man judges by outward appearance, cares if we put some colored talc on our faces or bit of metal in our ears?!?! Seriously?!?! Please tell us how you tell people to be saved. (please tell me you don't mention outward appearance)

Wearing of earrings is a sin and is from the pagan and for the Baal worshipers.
Wed, 26 May 2021 17:56:37 +0000
K D:
Wearing earrings is not a sin! God judges the motive behind the earrings. It's like saying its a sin to own a gun. Its not a sin to own a gun but it's a sin to use it to murder a person. One man may own a gun to hunt for food or protect his home, while another may own a gun to rob,kill or steal. Those people that God brought out of Egypt wore earrings and God didn't seem to have a problem with it until they took them off to make a golden calf to be their god. So its all about the motive of the heart. God judges the heart!
Fri, 04 Jun 2021 14:09:39 +0000
Keep in mind that all the women who God punished were all evil women! In the book of Exodus Moses told them to borrow the earrings and other fine jewelry and God didn't reject it. But when they use it to do evil it goes against the laws of God. I could go into a deeper discussion about this, but not on this platform, follow me on Facebook...

Dear Tim, the everlasting gospel saves, forgiveness of sins. Those who have sins forgiven don't want to wear earrings.
Mon, 14 Jun 2021 15:03:54 +0000
Thank u all for the contributions. Pls I have a question;is something bad or good because we say so or the Bible? Standing on the fact that earrings is sin and those who wear them go to hell is a gross exaggeration to me. The Bible says "God saved u by His grace when u believed. And u can take credit for this;it is a gift from God.9, salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done,so none of us can boast about it"NLT. My point is jewelleries are not a prerequisite for the salvation of man. D4, one will not lost His salvation because he/she wears ratings. "He who has the son has life;he who does not have the son of God does not have life" 1Jn5:12 NIV. Jn3:36 "HE who believes in the son has eternal life. And he who does not believe in the son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him" KJV. Will wearing earings take Jesus out of one's life? Or make not to be God's children?. God can give a man a specific instruction, that is personal revelation. That instruction can be for u alone for reasons best known to God,u are not to make the personal revelation a special revelation. Special revelation is based on the word and nothing more. Don't forget that God has given us his constitution, the Bible. If we therefore hold the fact that those who wear jewelleries will go to hell, that will not be TRUE because the constitution does not say so. Therefore I strongly disagree with the author

I really don't agree with you Mr author and from my critical study of the word .....it's obvious people like you have misplaced the priorities of the gospel of Jesus Let's not let our denominational believes make us to be like Pharisees
Mon, 19 Jul 2021 22:58:39 +0000
I disagree with your views on jewelries cos all the Biblical references doesn't in any way clearly convince me that just wearing of earrings or jewelries will take one to hell regardless of the person's belief in Christ .....sorry to say but Mr author you read those texts in 1Pet and 1 Timo totally out of context .....can we please just stop all this holier than thou attitude ....it won't take us any where .....the kingdom of God isn't made for some sect of Christian or denominations that wearing of earrings is sin or whatsoever ....it is a place for ALL that believed in Christ regardless .....
Mon, 19 Jul 2021 23:04:42 +0000
Whatever God Said in the old testament and didn't counter it in the new testament still stands. so my brother's and sisters let's follow the command and instructions from God. lest we be consumed at the last day.
Fri, 20 Aug 2021 05:38:46 +0000
I love this write up dearly. First, it is undisputable that wearing of earrings is a sin before God, though the urge for sin would not allow the holy spirit to make that clear to so many minds. Again, the use of those properties by God in Ezekiel 16was symbolic and not literal. God was only using the human language to communicate to humans so that they would have a perfect of understand of how much He hasth loved man. In Exo. 21:1-6,it is stated clearly that piercing of ears is for slaves. Now, we can't continue to be slaves to the devil when we have been redeemed by Christ. Lastly, in Hosea 2:1-3,God showed a dissatisfaction to all this physical adornment. Hell is real and heaven is real, every thing that is to be cast off must be done thus, otherwise, there's no kingdom of God for those who held tenaciously the abominable things of the Egyptians.

I strongly disagree with the outcome of this writeup. However, i agree that focusing too much on the outer beauty or adornment than that of the inner being/self as admonish by 1Peter 3:3 is where the problem comes in. Kindly read the Scripture below. The Lord's Faithless Bride: 16 Again the word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, make known to Jerusalem her abominations, 3 and say, Thus says the Lord God to Jerusalem: Your origin and your birth are of the land of the Canaanites; your father was an Amorite and your mother a Hittite. 4 And as for your birth, on the day you were born your cord was not cut, nor were you washed with water to cleanse you, nor rubbed with salt, nor wrapped in swaddling cloths. 5 No eye pitied you, to do any of these things to you out of compassion for you, but you were cast out on the open field, for you were abhorred, on the day that you were born. 6 “And when I passed by you and saw you wallowing in your blood, I said to you in your blood, ‘Live!’ I said to you in your blood, ‘Live!’ 7 I made you flourish like a plant of the field. And you grew up and became tall and arrived at full adornment. Your breasts were formed, and your hair had grown; yet you were naked and bare. 8 “When I passed by you again and saw you, behold, you were at the age for love, and I spread the corner of my garment over you and covered your nakedness; I made my vow to you and entered into a covenant with you, declares the Lord God, and you became mine. 9 Then I bathed you with water and washed off your blood from you and anointed you with oil. 10 I clothed you also with embroidered cloth and shod you with fine leather. I wrapped you in fine linen and covered you with silk.[a] 11 And I adorned you with ornaments and put bracelets on your wrists and a chain on your neck. 12 And I put a ring on your nose and earrings in your ears and a beautiful crown on your head. 13 Thus you were adorned with gold and silver, and your clothing was of fine linen and silk and embroidered cloth. You ate fine flour and honey and oil. You grew exceedingly beautiful and advanced to royalty. 14 And your renown went forth among the nations because of your beauty, for it was perfect through the splendor that I had bestowed on you, declares the Lord God. 15 “But you trusted in your beauty and played the whore[b] because of your renown and lavished your whorings[c] on any passerby; your beauty[d] became his.

There isn’t a place in the Bible that states it is a sin. The short answer is actually no. Wearing an earring for appearance is no different in dressing up in nice clothes. Look at it like this… if anyone tells you earrings are sinful but they have purchased and worn $100+ suits or watches then understand you are listening to a hypocrite. Read the Bible yourself and you will learn. People say the pagans did it but the pagans had water as well does that make drinking water bad? No. You can’t make stuff up about sin just because that’s what you believe. If you are spending too much money and time on earrings it can become a sin yes, but just wearing earrings is not sinful

From Heaven:
Pls so if you are earrings on sons and daughters means holy spirit while wives are physical and God told them all to remove then, meaning God asked them to take off both the Holy spirit and the physical appearance. Am I right comparing to your explanation.

Asher :
I’m a teenager and I have previously gotten my ears pierced. Summer is coming up and I want to get them redone. Although I want my ears pierced badly, I feel a conviction not to. I know ear piercing is a sign of slavery, but could I commit myself to God as a slave and that be justified if that makes sense? I genuinely just want to hear someone’s opinion before I make my ultimate decision.

Very biased. God looks at the heart. He knows our motives. Period. Nothing conclusively states a condemnation of simply wearing earrings. God is logic, understanding His Logic is key. God bless you brothers and sisters. I Love You! ❤️

David Samuel oniyo:
Oh what a bone of contention in a body of Christ. All i could see here is a division in the body of Christ like the Corinthian church. Let us remember what Paul said as he was moved by the Holy Spirit to write: if anyone bring any other doctrine apart from the one we taught u, let him be accursed.

Brother Jesubon:
Very well done on exposing the wicked god of vanity that is responsible for carrying many into the realm of Hell. And those there would love to have the opportunity to come back and repent. It is a demonic stronghold that is why the comments of many show that they truly do not fully understand the dire spiritual implications and many will face the great wrath of God if they do not repent and forsake. Your part is done the trumpet warning sounded. My Youtube channel is Brother JesuBon RAPTURE READY REVELATION, please keep in touch send me a message. God bless

Your minds are hollow don't you see he spoke against himself?At Ezekiel 16 God used those descriptions to show how he made the Jerusalem look but lately turned their backs to God and worshipped other gods. God himself said at verse 11 and 12. So look at the description God himself did about Jerusalem that means if it was a human being she would be very beautiful, adorned with gold and necklaces and earrings. And it is perfectly fine with God because if he detested earrings it wouldn't be apart of his description of how great He made Jerusalem become.

Dear author we are taking everything from the bible not what Martin Luther or any other person said.

And also saying that piercing is for slaves, those who got pierced were already salves but they did the piecing to show that they love their masters and they want to keep serving. Not necessarily that when they pierced they became slaves, they were already salves.

God's adornment in Ezeziel 16 is symbolic. Man could have not understood God if He could have used spiritual language but God decided to use things known to them to enable them to understand how much He values them. Just the same way Jesus used the parables and cited symbols or activities known to his audience for the ease of their understanding. please let's lift our spirits and open our hearts for the Holy Spirit to dwell in us and give us a true understanding.

The writer of this article states the LORD, in Ezek 16 was the one that put the adornments on the people of Israel, but we should all know the LORD DID NOT physically put adornments on all the people. Why, they could not even stand before the LORD's presence when HE came down on the mountain (Ex. 20: 18, 19). How would they have been able to sit while the LORD put adornments on their bodies? (Not a smart conclusion) The LORD is saying HE gave Israel riches which included the adornments...and we can logically conclude the people put the adornments on themselves! But why would the LORD put something that is sinful on HIS people? What other EVIL did the LORD employ to make a point? Did HE have the people roast their children in the fire so he could prove human sacrifice was wrong? Did HE command them to have sexual relations with persons who they were NOT married to in order to prove the wickedness of adultery? Why in the world would the LORD put evil, sinful, jewelry on Israel...if indeed the jewelry was evil? You forget the Word says that the LORD cannot be tempted with evil, neither does HE tempt man with evil. Jewelry is just like eating with unwashen hands, as Jesus pointed out in Matt. 15:11-20 that it is not what goes into a man's mouth that makes him sinful, it is what comes OUT of a man's mouth because that reflects his HEART. The same can be said for jewelry. It's not jewelry which goes on a person's body that defiles the person. It is what's in that person' HEART that defiles them!! Man sees the outside but ALMIGHTY GOD sees the heart!!!! As Jesus said in Matt. 15:9....In VAIN does the writer of this article worship GOD because he teaches for DOCTRINE the Commandments of MEN!!!!!
