So happyladybird, should we as Christians purchase clothes purely as a form of expression?

i think its interesting when people can justify spending 500 pounds for one dress or 20 dresses at 10 pounds each.  both are excessive.

the principle is the same: modesty, and buying clothes as you need, not as you want.

also, i've seen that heels are really in fashion right now with some ridiculous styles.  some of these shoes, as well as outfits, are, in my opinion, no worse that having studs in your ears.

How one spends ones money is entirely up to them and all relative to what they earn and their interests whether fashion, technology, cars, homes, books  etc.

Not as far as the gospel is concerned if you are a confess christian.
Our time and money is accountable, therefore God expects us to use money wisely mostly for necessities and practical use.

* I agree with Joanne 1000% in her last posting

Luke 12: 48 says:

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

With wealth comes responsibility, with great wealth comes great responsibility. I suppose God in His wisdom knows how much responsibility we can manage and hence gives us wealth accordingly!!!!

So if God appointed you as a ruler or a king you would not live in a place which was in line with your title and you would not drive a car in line with your salary?

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

How do we explain what this mean?

may I recommend that you re-read Noey's last posting:

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

With wealth comes responsibility, with great wealth comes great responsibility. I suppose God in His wisdom knows how
much responsibility we can manage and hence gives us wealth accordingly!!!!
