    Beards and makeup are not mentioned in the bible

    Actually there are quite specific details about beard grooming in the Mosaic Law.

    And Jezebel is depicted as putting on makeup.

    I recall reading a pretty persuasive post, many years ago, that highlighted that if the same "reasoning" that is used to condemn birthday celebrations were applied consistently, no JW could ever wear even the slightest hint of makeup (the argument was along the lines of "the only time cosmetics are mentioned in the Bible, someone ends up dying" - sound familiar?).

    Everything stumbles the Borg. Just before my wife and I left a married couple should not hold hand during a prayer. Because it might stumbles some new comer who may think we are thinking about having sex. Tight pants, holding hands, women wearing pants, tight clothing, pillows and on and on. It's all causes sex according to the cult. But it is alright to talk crazy shit on stage because God is with us. Still Totally ADD

    Mr Lett - you're Pharisaic position, attitude and self-important speeches stumble me. Stop it now!

    Sanctimonious & pompous hypocrite who probably believes in his own hype.

    Jehovah hates an older man with a well trimmed beard.

    Jehovah loves a middle aged man with a stupid comb over.

    CASE CLOSED!!!!!!!!

    I guess if God didn't want men to have a beard then he shouldn't have created man with facial hair. God put it there but the Gibbering Booty says to take it off. These Overlappers want the skin on a man's face to be as smooth as a babies butt.

    It's odd Lett mentioned "wearing a beard ... [and] ... heavy makeup" in the same breath

    I'm pro-beard but if a beard is so long it's a "stumbling beard" it probly needs a trim in the interests of public safety.

    Goofball and rubber faced Stephen Lett says : ''like Paul,are we willing to forgo our rights regarding for example wearing beards''

    Rights are legal, social, or ethical principles of freedom or entitlement; that is, rights are the fundamental normative rules about what is allowed of people or owed to people, according to some legal system, social convention, or ethical theory.

    When is someone's rights a stumbling block for anyone.Only to the Watchtower Society, growing a beard is a ''stumbling block''. Not to any individual members in the congregation.
