Wear the beard. Wear it proud.

“The beard is a masculine ornament, given to us by God not for any practical use, but for our dignity” St. Augustine.

 

Men, wear your beards with dignity. Pastor, grow it back. Kenny, thanks for the quote which I robbed. Jonathan, now you know the error you made when you cut it off; but you have repented and it grows again. Don’t forget, the children are watching. (-:

  1. My goatee does not qualify me to preach on the doctrine of godly beards, but I enjoyed this quote:
    “But for one who is a man to comb himself and shave himself with a razor, for the sake of fine effect, to arrange his hair at the looking-glass, to shave his cheeks, pluck hairs out of them, and smooth them, how womanly! And, in truth, unless you saw them naked, you would suppose them to be women… …For God wished women to be smooth, and rejoice in their locks alone growing spontaneously, as a horse in his mane; but has adorned man, like the lions, with a beard, and endowed him, as an attribute of manhood, with shaggy breasts,-a sign this of strength and rule.”
    – Clement of Alexandria about the year 195 Vol.2 pg. 275 of “Ante Nicene Fathers”

    I greatly enjoy your posts, bro.

    Keep them coming.

    • Lol, that is funny. Thanks Steve, for sharing. It is great to hear from you, and I really appreciate you taking the time to respond. I will forever think of my beard now as a shaggy mane, as of a lion! Brilliant.
