Traditional Wet Shaving & More!
Jesus shaves! It is an amusing image, but I doubt He actually shaved, mostly due to the cultural customs of the time. And Gillette wasn’t even around back then… 😉
Wet shaving has changed an essential part of my life, and I’m enthusiastic to tell others about it, but it’s even more imperative that I share with you how Jesus can change your life. “Whoa, I’m not interested in discussing man’s mortality and life after death! I just came here for shaving…” you say? Maybe you’re not ready to contemplate eternity now—but, eventually you will.
At some point in life, every person asks:
“Where did I come from?”
“What is my purpose?”
“What happens when I die?”
God, the Creator of the Universe and everything in it, made you and put you on this Earth for one purpose: to live a perfect, fulfilling life, which in turn brings honor and glory to Him (God). But, He also gave mankind a free will; we are not robots, we can choose to embrace or reject God. Mankind rejected God by sinning and disobeying God’s rules (the actions of Adam & Eve recounted in the Bible, Genesis chapter 3). By dishonoring God through sin, man broke his relationship and good standing.
Today, it is popular to emphasize that God is Love, but God is also Holy (righteous and perfect, without any sin). Because God is Holy he cannot tolerate or overlook our sin, and because God is Love, He continues to Love us in spite of our sin and doesn’t want us to be forever separated from Him—John 3:16.
There is a consequence for every action (commit a felony crime = go to jail); the consequence of sin is death—Romans 3:23. This verse implies not just a physical death, but a spiritual death through everlasting separation from God in a place of fire and punishment called Hell—Romans 6:23. That’s disheartening news, but there is hope. Jesus, the Christ, God’s one and only Son, has accepted the consequences and punishment for our sin—Romans 5:8—so that we can be reunited with God—Romans 8:1.
Mankind is spiritually lost without God. Without divine purpose, we attempt to fulfill our lives with the material pursuit of money, fame, pleasure, or drugs, but these pursuits are ultimately empty and unsatisfying. Some try to be good and moral, but even that is not enough. God is Holy and perfect, and there is nothing that we can humanly do that will equal His perfection. If you could earn God’s forgiveness with good works or money, you would be tempted to boast and have selfish pride, which is also sin in the eyes of God. Also, it would be unfair to a person who did not have the means/wealth to buy God’s forgiveness. That’s why Jesus gave his life freely for our sins so that we could freely receive the results.
Only when you realize that God is the one, true source of purpose, love, and understanding can you break free of sin’s oppression and have a victorious, fulfilling life. God wants to and will forgive your sins; all you have to do is ask and believe that He can—Romans 10:9. His forgiveness and promise of redemption are FREE!
Because God is perfect—and by perfect, He is also truthful—He always keeps His word. Once you accept the free gift of God’s salvation from your sin, not only are you restored with God, but also you can never lose this Salvation. Nor, will He ever take it away. (A gift isn’t a gift if it has “strings attached” or can be taken away). There is nothing you can do to earn Salvation yourself and there is nothing you can do to lose it!
One day, we will all die. What happens to your soul is up to you. Will you accept God’s free gift or reject it? If you accept it, you can have assurance that you will be reunited with God in Heaven and experience your true purpose in life; but, if you reject Him, you will never experience true purpose or lasting fulfillment. When your life ends, you will be separated from God in a place of punishment called Hell. Forever.
God loves you and can save you. Jesus doesn’t shave, but He Saves!
