I get asked questions all the time because of my keen gift of decernmentalism. Often I am amazed that I do not know the answer but have the supernatural ability to come up with one. Recently a person (whom I hid the identity of so I will not embarrass them) asked this question.

Can you help me? I keep a five o’clock shadow full face beard on occasion. Is that evil?
We all know God has a beard. So i assure you that as far as a beard you are fine. Every movie I have seen Jesus in, He also had a beard, blues eyes and light skin and dark hair.
If Jesus and God had beards, I think again that we can as we were made in God’s image and look just like Him.
Often when I look in the mirror and see my fat belly and sagging pecks I take comfort in knowing that God is older so his belly must be fatter and His pecks more saggy.
Now, we need be careful as to what type of beard we grow.
Take this one for instance.
This is one of the Emergent leaders Shane Claiborne. I have written extensively on him in my well researched massive called Why Shane Claiborne is not saved.
Notice how he looks like this guy?
There are many good beards out there that we can choose from, yet again we must make sure we are not combining Rastafarian hair (hair of false religions) with satanic goatees.
Here are some good beard styles. Notice mostly that with a nice hair cut, most beards that are maintained are acceptable.
Here is an example of what Jesus would look like today. Actually, Jesus would have shorter hair and possible male pattern balding. This would be more for the church youth group style to look hip for the kids when preaching God’s wrath as he was sent to do.
Yet, if we are to be most faithful to those great men that came before us and preached the Gospel of Grace with anger and wrath that is true of our God we would grow a beard like this.
Be true to what the bible teaches and you will be saved. Levitcus 19:27 should answer all your questions.
I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up,
