Contained in this article are 2 statements of some Christians that are contrary to the word of God. These 2 statements may be as a result of some misunderstanding of some portions of the Bible. As we continue, I would give a clear explanation as to why these statements are contrary. I would also give you some biblical references to help you understand my point of view. Without further ado, the 2 statements are:
1. God Only Looks at the Heart and Not the Dressing:
This is one of the statement that has gone contrary to the word of God. There are some people, even Christians, who have concluded that God only looks at the heart and not the dressing. And so, they are at liberty to dress anyhow they like provided they keep their heart pure. However, the question is how can you keep your heart pure when your dressing says otherwise? The bible says in the book of Deuteronomy chapter 22 verses 5 that; "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.".
Furthermore, the bible also says in the book of Proverbs chapter 4 verses 23 that; "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.". From this bible passage, we saw that the issues of life are as a result of how the heart is. So, if a person's dressing is wrong, can we not say that his or her heart is also thinking about the wrong things? This is because dressing is also an issue that comes from the heart into reality. So, with this established fact, I think that those people who are guilty of this statement should kindly change, and do what is right.
2. Drinking of Alcohol is Not a Sin:
This is another statement that in my opinion is also contrary to the word of God. I have not seen anywhere in the bible where God himself told a Christian to drink alcohol. It was in the in the book of Timothy that a little wine was said to be drunk for the stomach sake. And this statement was from a man and not God. Now, this wine was not specified. This means that the wine could be a fruit wine or an alcoholic one. However, what clarifies my claims is that it was written in the bible that drunkards would not inherit the kingdom of God. This statement was said in the book of 1st Corinthians chapter 6 verses 9 and 10 that; "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10. Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." Knowing this, it is pertinent to say that this statement should be corrected.
