Well, the only reference I can find that speaks of Christ's beard is in a prophetic text that is believed by many to be a prophetic statement regarding Christ's scourging:
Isaiah 50:6 English Standard Version (ESV)
6 I gave my back to those who strike, and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard; I hid not my face from disgrace and spitting.
I guess one could say that if they pulled out Christ's beard... we should pull out ours???

Pro:

1. There is no command or approved example or necessary inference in or from Scripture that requires the shaving off of the beard of a man.

2. There is a positive command against "marring the corners of one's beard" - Lev 19:27

3. There are approved examples of men favoured by God who had beards (too numerous to mention).

4. There are Biblical examples of beard shaving which indicate it was considered shameful.

5. Logic indicates that beards, being distinctively masculine, are to be preferred to being clean shaven , which is more suitable to women.

6. Logic indicates that beards, being a natural indication of male adulthood, are preferable to being clean shaven, which is indicative of childhood. (Beard = man, no beard = boy.)

Con:

1. Some people prefer the professional businessman look.

2. Crumbs from food sometimes get in the beard.

3. Many women are more likely to be sexually attracted to clean shaven men than to men with beards (although most women instinctively identify bearded men as more likely to be financially stable and able to provide for a family, according to recent studies).

4. ?

Re: What logic and Bible is used against beards?

In his book "Facial Hair" approved by the United Pentecostal, Church L. Chancy Gore stands against beards in part because:

Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and Catholics were clean shaven.

Beards were considered by some as the mark of the beast.

Beards are as a mask.

Gays and drug addicts wear beards.

Beards feed self pride.

In my opinion, there is too much feminization in our culture. There's nothing wrong with being proud to be a man.

Maybe someone should knock the guy's lights out. I'll stay out of it though. Because, evidently he hasn't grown his beard...




… and I don't punch women or children. LOL
