Questions & Answers

QUESTION: “Is suicide really the unforgivable sin? I tried to kill myself just a little over a year ago.” ANSWER: No, suicide is not an unforgivable sin. An unforgivable or “unpardonable” sin is any sin (or attitude of sin) which we adamantly refuse to repent of. For more information on this subject, write for our free booklet What Do You Mean – “The Unpardonable Sin”? Q: “Concerning makeup: Is it wrong for a woman to wear it?” A: The Bible does not give a definite “yea or nay” regarding the use of makeup. Some cite the negative example of Jezebel painting her face to support a “no makeup” stand. But Jezebel was condemned for her wrong motivation and her evil actions rather than the use of makeup per se. On the positive side, one of Job’s beautiful daughters was named Keren-happuch. Translated from the Hebrew this means “horn of eyepaint” or “horn of cosmetics.” The Jerusalem Bible translates her name “Mascara.”
