The Red Alert is a False Alarm

From: Rowena

Bro. Eli,

I really want to ask if Christians are not allowed to wear red colored clothes. Thanks be to God!
Dear Rowena,

There is no prohibition in the New Testament regarding the color of clothes that a Christian should wear. It is the style and the manner of clothing that is being modified by the Christian doctrine.

(1 Timothy 2:9-10) “In the same way also, I desire that women adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and sensibleness, not adorned with braiding, or gold, or pearls, or costly clothing , but with good works, which becomes women professing godliness.”

Christians, especially women, must be found blameless in their practice of holiness, ‘perfect holiness’ that is.

(2 Corinthians 7:1) “Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

(1 Thessalonians 3:13) “To the end he may establish your hearts unblamable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.”


There are those that profess to be Christians, but are unmindful if their manner of dressing entices the eyes of the beholder. In 1 John 2:15-16, it states:

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”

The manner by which someone dresses himself or herself up may awaken the lust of the flesh and the eyes of the beholder! This is the manner of the world. We must not conform nor love it.

(Romans 12:2) “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

In the olden days of Israel, the first nation that served God, even the texture of the clothes to be worn is disciplined by God’s wisdom.

(Leviticus 19:19) “Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle engender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woolen come upon thee.”

Even the color is suggested in the Old Testament books.

(Ecclesiastes 9:8) “Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment.”

Can these pronouncements from the Lord be anti-scientific nonsense?

CLOTHING IS ESSENTIAL for protection from too much sunlight (ultraviolet radiation), too much humidity (rain and snow), too much cold (temperate and arctic regions), too much need-desire (sexual preoccupation). For the health conscious and hypersensitive person, one’s choice of clothing is important. Every fabric used in clothing and every color emit their own frequency of radiation – vibrations. Many of the fabrics available in the 90’s have been mass produced for the past 40 years and are treated with chemicals. These also have their own vibratory essence.

TOXINS ALSO RADIATE VIBRATIONS and each fabric has an ability to attract or encourage their presence. Combinations of these fabrics, colors, chemicals, toxins, color and odor radiations are particularly noticeable to the Reptilian brain. These vibrations either depress/relax one’s body and immune system, or, they stimulate one’s body and immune system. Seldom is there no influence at all.

FABRICS ARE NOT ALL THE SAME in their potential to influence health. Fabrics may be divided into those which are from natural sources (wool, cotton, silk, skin-hide-fur, feather/down, paper) and synthetic (nylon, rayon, polyester, acetate, polyurethane, synthetic rubber, and others). A person can become hypersensitive to any one or a combination of these fabrics.

CLOTHING-RELATED HYPERSENSITIVITY reactions expressed will be of an identical set for each fabric. Like all forms of hypersensitivity, a reaction to one type of fabric makes its easy to acquire hypersensitivity to another fabric of the same classification. That is, the human brain is quite capable of sensing similarities. Any apparent singular reaction may be complicated by the expression of other sensitivities at the same time.

REACTIONS CAN BE CUMULATIVE both quantitatively and qualitatively. For instance, what may have begun as a sensitivity to polyester — may be broadened or intensified. The presence of dust, fungi or mould spores, dander, perfume/scent, bacteria, perspiration, urine, pollen … may intensify, confuse, mask, or expand the form and frequency of the reactions being experienced. This combination of symptoms may not be simply expressed as the addition of coughing to a rash. The result may be expressed as a more intense and totally different reaction: heart palpitations … that is, a racing heartbeat. Selection, purity, cleanliness of clothing fabric — are each important for health.

If you find that putting on a certain shirt, blouse, skirt, sweater, suit, coat or hat makes you feel relaxed, happy, depressed, anxious, confident, sexy, or reflective — make a note of it. Make a listing of your clothes noting the color, fabric composition, dry cleaned or laundered, bleach or fabric softener used, age, and degree of fit.

Maybe one must also be guided by the norms of doing everything in an appropriate time and situation.

(1 Corinthians 14:40) “Let all things be done decently and in order.”

  1. prior to reading this post, i never really thought that a simple clothing contains this much of a wisdom. i thank God for Bro. Eli for this very informative and enligthening post. its my first time here (internet chats, YMs,blogging, …etc. ) and with this first very good impression, i will be looking forward for the next postings to come.

  2. Glory be to God! We’re so lucky to have a preacher like you, who is always ready to answer to all our queries. May God bless you always!

  3. Hmmm, this one is really great. I don’t feel comfortable with my office clothes most especially during summer season, most of the time I feel heavy. This simple but full of wisdom post really helps me a lot.

    Thanks Bro. Eli

  4. It’s quite comforting to know that a man of knowledge do have a well prepared variety of answers for the one’s who ask, wonderful,totally outstanding! Let your thinking be dressed with GOD’s Wisdom in CHRIST and you will judge for yourself that adhering to “THE” Divine,Pure,Undefiled Truth is refreshing to the soul and who can teach these things? If they are not sent and guided by the Scripture? Romans 10:14!

  5. the passage from timothy advising women to dress conservatively goes nicely with these commands:)

    1 Timothy 2:11-15:”A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent…” (NIV)

    1 Corinthians 14:34-35: “…women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says, If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.” (NIV)

  6. I do have different choices of clothes to wear, depending on my mood. I’ve been using the red one if I have high morale. Good thing Bro. Eli opened up this one, for before I once thought that red clothes mean something bad. Thank God for the enlightment.

  7. Good day.. this was such a nice post… atleast many will be guided by this on their day-to-day clothings… its really a great thing to have a norm or standard on each things that we use or do everyday (like what we wear) .. =) Glory be to GOD….

  8. Thanks be to God again Bro Eli for such a nice post.

    Nowadays the manner and style of clothing by most females around the world is very much enticing to the eyes which may awaken the lust of the flesh by the beholder. Clothing by females is one factor why rape case, nowadays, is very rampant.

    Different pastors, priests and religious leaders did not even bother to teach their members the manner of clothing in the Bible because they are false prophets

    Thanks to you Bro. Eli for reading the Bible for us. You are the only sensible preacher in our times.

  9. Well, i still dont like the color red. It reminds me of a powerful man reigning upon the kings of the earth. And letting them have a sign to their forehead and right hand..yep.. I dont like red.

  10. I thanks GOD for HIS boundless wisdom, this is a big help for us, to know what really we should wear…mostly for women who want to be save… Bro. ELI is a true man of GOD.

  11. Color of what we wear physically is not important.
    What is important is the spiritual garments we must put on.

    And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

    Colossians 3:14
    King James Version

    And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    Ephesians 6:17

  12. WE PRAISE YOU, WORSHIP YOU, AND THANK YOU LORD GOD, FOREVER AND EVER. We pray for more blessings to you brethrens in the CHURCH OF GOD, to you Bro Eli, Bro Daniel, ministers, workers, and all of you who are into this blog. While it is true that the color of ones dress has varied intensity and psychological effect to many persons, it is the simplicity, decency, and manner of wearing it that counts. Red, white, black, green, or any other color for that matter when worn in a very revealing, enticing or provocative way, is not good for a true Christian, as mentioned in the verses presented by Bro Eli and the other brethrens. I am sorry that a brethren is reminded of a ‘false father’ in Rome who wears red, it is not the color of his garment that violates the TEACHINGS, it is their hypocrisy, the wrong doctrine, and the unbiblical practices of pagan-pageantry that violates GOD’s TRUTH. Its okay brother if you deslike red for your own reasons. Others also claim that red reminds them of the fire in hell for the sinners. I think this time, we will respect everyone’s personal likes and choice of color, as long as the manner of wearing the attire is not and will not tempt others to commit sin, even secretly in their hearts and minds. Thank you Bro Eli for this very informative explanation. We will always pray that GOD will enlighten the people hired by the ‘enemies’ to harm or kill you that they will change their heart and join instead the CHURCH OF GOD. After all, our fight is not of the flesh and blood, so please go ahead with your GOD given mission to spread the TRUTH AND WORDS OF GOD, for the sake of the others who have not yet heard you, and those misled by the leaders of the false churches.

  13. To 8 pinch_hopper:

    red means two things in the bible: sin and while blood is red, blood means deliverance from sin via lord jesus christ. dress anything you want as long as it doesn’t oppose the bible. and as i see it from you, you are not opposing the bible. congratulations and GOD Bless!

  14. thanks be to God 4 giving us a knowledgeable preacher.
    I learned a lot from you. thanks a lot and may God be with you always..
    We missssss you sooooo much bro.Eli hope to see you soon again here in the Phils.
    God blessss po!

  15. May i speak in our own dialect?Bakit ano ba ang problema sa kulay PULA?balit masyadong binibyan nyo ng kapamigatan ang kulay na yan?Some says it is the color of the devil which is i think is, installed in the mind of an ignorant person,sorry for my words.but its true!!!just a waste of time,what color to wear or to use.It doesnt matter anyway…thanks be to God!!!
