I tell you what... I'm continually shocked at how "beauty" is defined!
who finds this look remotely attractive?
Let me know what you think.
I don't know about you, my readers, but if you have the same values I do, which I know many and pretty much all of you do, you find this style disturbing.
I know that growing up in this, our American culture, style and fashion have been idolized.
It's been made into such a god that it's an all consuming factor in many people's lives!
People eat, breath, sleep, think, obsess over this god.
To me though...
Modern fashion is a freak show and total joke!
Outfits look like clown suits.
People look like Jokers.
Like they dressed in the dark and put their makeup on with their left hands (if their right handed, of course), standing on their heads under water!
Pleeease... don't even get me started on the hairstyles!
Beauty is distorted.
Just like sinful man.
I've heard it said before that the reason people find...
so attractive is because as sinful people, we are anti~God.
We fight against anything that is related to God and His plan.
Thus, true beauty is ugly and hideous is gorgeous!
"Well... what is true beauty?" some ask.
God defines beauty as such:
Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
1 Peter 3:3-5~NKJV (italics to verse four added by me)
3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands...
So different from our culture, eh?
So... to answer my question in the title, "Who hijacked beauty's definition?"
I say... sinful man.
Plain and simple.
Hope this made coherent sense :)
Let me know what you think!
