    Pardon my ignorance, but what’s a ‘boob job?’

      The proper term is “breast augmentation.” Personally, in my opinion, messing with our bodies in such a dramatic fashion, seems very unscriptural. Take for instance, Mary the Mother of Jesus. She was a chaste virgin, and walking so closely with God, that she was chosen, at such a very young age to be the Mother of the Son of God. Do you think that Mary would have gone in to have breast augmentation?? No, most definitely not. Nowhere in the Bible does it say not to have such a cosmetic surgery as that done, but it gives us principles to live by, and I believe such a surgery is against Bible standards.

        By the way, the only reason I know what such a thing is, is because my Mom is a nurse–just clarifying that!

    Where in the bible does it say it’s a sin to make your chest bigger? To my knowledge, God does not condemn people for enhancing their physical appearance.

    Boob job is when you put implants in your chest to make them larger.

    Where did you get the idea that you could sin and go to hell? Once you are saved you are saved for ever, no matter what. You said you are a new Christian, praise the Lord for that! His angels are rejoicing for you. I want you to know that if you were truly saved, you need have NO DOUBTS.

    John 5:24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation:but is passed from death unto life.

    John 6:37
    All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and he that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

    John 10:28-29
    And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

    Hebrews 13:5
    …for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

    Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    1 John 5:13
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

    Hi, Maria
    First I have to tell you that if you are saved by the blood of Christ, and have accepted Him as your personal Lord and Savior, you will not go to hell. If you sin, you may be chastised or punished, but you will not lose your salvation.

    In answer to your question, what comes to mind is the tragedy of the fact that although your husband calls himself a Christian, he clearly has a worldly view of sexuality. In other words, what he thinks of as sexy is informed by the media, and not by God. Biblically speaking, the ornament of great price worn by a woman is her meek and quiet spirit, not gold or pearls or broiding of the hair, or costly array (1 Tim. 2:9, 1 Peter 3:4). I would certainly qualify a boob job as “costly array”, the type of worldly apparel that a woman in today’s society can “put on”. Accoutrements such as these are clearly considered by God to have no value.

    That doesn’t mean they’re sinful. Technically, as a Christian, you are free to get a boob job if you please, just as you are free to wear expensive jewelry. I have to confess, however, that just today I saw a missionary wife in church, and she was wearing four jewel-encrusted, gold or silver bracelets (obviously expensive), on each arm. One had a brightly colored ribbon tied to it. They were like cuffs, so they reached half-way to her elbow, and were impossible to miss. I couldn’t help but wonder what she was thinking. Aren’t we all missionaries, in a way, ministering to the unsaved around us before we go home to heaven? Aren’t we all under scrutiny as Christians, and isn’t the devil delighted to see us err so that he can stand in God’s presence and accuse us day and night? If, as Christian women, we are to wear “shamefacedness and sobriety”, and dress in “modest apparel”, how are we justified in wearing “costly array”, which states with utter clarity that we are worldly? Just wondering…

    Please ask yourself the following questions before you consider this further:
    -Will getting this surgery attract attention from men who are not your husband, and cause them to lust after you?
    -Who or what is your husband trying to make you look like?
    -Will this surgery be the only alteration he wants you to make, or will it be an excuse for him to find more things about you he will want to change in the future?
    -Are you clearly informed of the medical risks that you will be taking?
    -Do you think that you need to look better on the outside to be “good enough” for your husband, or for God?
    -If you get this surgery, can you still be modest, shamefaced, and have an ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, as God wills for you?
    -How will having this surgery bring glory to God, who made you so beautiful just the way you are?

    Please approach your husband with sincerity on this matter, and use the Words of God when you speak. If your desire is to please the Lord first and foremost, your husband will see it and be humbled. God bless you, Maria.

    Maria, I don’t think getting breast implants will send you to hell. That being said, I also think God made you exactly how He wanted you and your husband should love you for how God made you, not how doctors can make you. First it’s bigger breasts, then maybe it’s your nose, then maybe it’s some botox….how far do you go?

    Maria, I believe that we should be content the way God made us (and I am flat-chested so I know what that is like!) and though it may not be a sin to get a “boob job” it would not be the best idea (do they really have to be re-‘inflated’ every 10 years?! that’s what I heard).

    But most of all, whatever is decided, and even IF getting cosmetic surgery WAS a sin specifically mentioned in the Bible, it would not send you to hell just because you sinned. If you have truly been born again and believed in Christ alone and His sacrifice for you to take you to Heaven, then you are FOREVER saved and once you are adopted into God’s family you are never “un-adopted” because of something you do! Though that does not give a license to sin all we want, that does mean that when we do fail him we never have to worry about whether we are going to lose our salvation over it.

    I have always been big on top. Believe me it is not what people make it out to be. It has always been burden for me to try to hide them. I am an eye contact person and I know right away whether I have a man’s attention or not. It is no fun knowing what those perverts are looking at. Plus…clothes were always an isue. Finding nice dresses that fit you without indecent exposure. Bathing suits are hard to ware.
    They are great for my hubby but hard to hid from other men. I must not be that bad at hiding them because my hubby didn’t know about them until after….he asked where I was hiding them.
