I have never heard the fall of Satan used as a major tenant for the not wearing of jewelry, but would be willing to listen to a case be made for that position. I consider Paul, Peter, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel to be quite suffiecient for God frowning on jewelry. Especially as I have learned how it was used for more than simple ornamentaion.



And as can easily be seen by this exchange, he definately has the two of us confused.
Sorry, but there's more in the O.T. to support jewelry wearing than to condemn it.

Could show me where, after God is dealing with the children of Israel, jewelry is actually accepted and encouraged?

Re: Dr. Gerald Jeffers

Nope, I have never met the man nor heard him preach a message. I am going to have to, but I am not going to do anything like that probably until after Thanksgiving. I have a lot of hours left to work, and then I am going out of town. However, I wait to judge anything until I have heard it for myself, or have it from someone I highly trust.

Re: Dr. Gerald Jeffers

Re: Dr. Gerald Jeffers

Yes indeed Sis. Alvear. I think the point Jay may be making is that Jewelry is associated to pride and vanity.

Honestly, I don't see much point in wearing jewelry besides my wedding ring, but neither do I see it as a sinful thing UNLESS the person doing so truly has a pride problem and thinks they are somethign special because they can wear gawdy jewelry.

I'm like that too. What I'm hearing is coming from a very prominent minister - it's actually affecting his family.

Why did God use giving jewelry to prospective brides as a sign of blessing? Why did He (NT) say to put a ring on the prodigal son's finger?
