Eli, I really want to ask if Christians are not allowed to wear red colored clothes. Thanks be to God! Dear Rowena, There is no prohibition in the New Testament regarding the color of clothes that a Christian should wear. It is the style and the manner of clothing that is being modified by the Christian doctrine. (1 Timothy 2:9-10) “In the same way also, I desire that women adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and sensibleness, not adorned with braiding, or gold, or pearls, or costly clothing , but with good works, which becomes women professing godliness.” Christians, especially women, must be found blameless in their practice of holiness, ‘perfect holiness’ that is. (2 Corinthians 7:1) “Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” (1 Thessalonians 3:13) “To the end he may establish your hearts unblamable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.”

There are those that profess to be Christians, but are unmindful if their manner of dressing entices the eyes of the beholder. In 1 John 2:15-16, it states: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” The manner by which someone dresses himself or herself up may awaken the lust of the flesh and the eyes of the beholder! This is the manner of the world. We must not conform nor love it. (Romans 12:2) “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” In the olden days of Israel, the first nation that served God, even the texture of the clothes to be worn is disciplined by God’s wisdom. (Leviticus 19:19) “Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle engender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woolen come upon thee.” Even the color is suggested in the Old Testament books. (Ecclesiastes 9:8) “Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment.” Can these pronouncements from the Lord be anti-scientific nonsense? CLOTHING IS ESSENTIAL for protection from too much sunlight (ultraviolet radiation), too much humidity (rain and snow), too much cold (temperate and arctic regions), too much need-desire (sexual preoccupation). For the health conscious and hypersensitive person, one’s choice of clothing is important. Every fabric used in clothing and every color emit their own frequency of radiation - vibrations. Many of the fabrics available in the 90’s have been mass produced for the past 40 years and are treated with chemicals. These also have their own vibratory essence. TOXINS ALSO RADIATE VIBRATIONS and each fabric has an ability to attract or encourage their presence. Combinations of these fabrics, colors, chemicals, toxins, color and odor radiations are particularly noticeable to the Reptilian brain. These vibrations either depress/relax one’s body and immune system, or, they stimulate one’s body and immune system. Seldom is there no influence at all. FABRICS ARE NOT ALL THE SAME in their potential to influence health. Fabrics may be divided into those which are from natural sources (wool, cotton, silk, skin-hide-fur, feather/down, paper) and synthetic (nylon, rayon, polyester,

acetate, polyurethane, synthetic rubber, and others). A person can become hypersensitive to any one or a combination of these fabrics. CLOTHING-RELATED HYPERSENSITIVITY reactions expressed will be of an identical set for each fabric. Like all forms of hypersensitivity, a reaction to one type of fabric makes its easy to acquire hypersensitivity to another fabric of the same classification. That is, the human brain is quite capable of sensing similarities. Any apparent singular reaction may be complicated by the expression of other sensitivities at the same time. REACTIONS CAN BE CUMULATIVE both quantitatively and qualitatively. For instance, what may have begun as a sensitivity to polyester — may be broadened or intensified. The presence of dust, fungi or mould spores, dander, perfume/scent, bacteria, perspiration, urine, pollen … may intensify, confuse, mask, or expand the form and frequency of the reactions being experienced. This combination of symptoms may not be simply expressed as the addition of coughing to a rash. The result may be expressed as a more intense and totally different reaction: heart palpitations … that is, a racing heartbeat. Selection, purity, cleanliness of clothing fabric — are each important for health. OLDER CLOTHING CAN BE HEALTHIER. If you find that putting on a certain shirt, blouse, skirt, sweater, suit, coat or hat makes you feel relaxed, happy, depressed, anxious, confident, sexy, or reflective — make a note of it. Make a listing of your clothes noting the color, fabric composition, dry cleaned or laundered, bleach or fabric softener used, age, and degree of fit.
