    Since you seem to have the answer to every question here are two more.
    Do you think the Bible forbids make-up and how do you base your answer on scripture?
    What does the Bible teach us about divorce and remarriage? What are the grounds for divorce and does that allow remarriage if your 1st husband still lives?

    Dear Bessie:
    Yep, I have an answer for everything:  even if my answer is, "I DON'T KNOW."
    Jezebel painted her eyes [eyelids] (II Kings 9:30), although I don't know that we should be emulating Jezebel.
    Cosmetics are not mentioned per se in the Scriptures.  However, there are allusions to cosmetics and make-up.  In I Tim. 2:9 Paul tells the women to "adorn themselves in modest apparel....."
    Adorn means to decorate, and it could apply to fixing the hair and ointments, perfumes, cosmetics, and the like.  The point being that the "decorations" are to be modest and in good taste.  Jer. 4:30 says, "...though you deck yourself with ornaments of gold, though you [Heb:  'enlarge your eyes with paint'] , in vain shall you make yourself FAIR; your lovers will despise you, they will seek your life."
    God doesn't say that it was WRONG to put on cosmetics and improve the eyes, He merely says that IT WILL NOT WORK. It won't achieve the desired result. My personal feeling is that most women look a little better with a little make up, but a lot worse with a lot of make-up.
    Divorce:  The only way that Jesus said one can leave a make and/or marry another is if there is "pornia" present (called 'forniction') in the King James.  Pornia means "prostitution," but it can also mean a host of sexual immorality.  Also, Paul tells us that if a man will not provide for his own family, he is "WORSE than an infidel." The same is true of a man or deserts his family, or abuses his wife or children. In such cases of "immorality" a mate should not be considered bound.
    God be with you,
