What jewelry are women allowed to wear as Believers?


“Brother Branham: Questions: Should a Christian woman wear simple jewelry, as necklaces or pearls? Well, sister, I know this means a lot to you, and it means a lot for me for you to place your confidence I'd tell you the truth. Now remember, the Bible said, "When you adorn, do not adorn with--with costly jewels, and pearls, and all kinds of wearing of jewelry, but let that be the adorning of a peace, and quiet, and meek spirit (which I just quoted), which is a great price before the Lord." Now, I don't mean by that, sister, that if you had a pin... Now, this is me, not the Lord. If you had a pin that you wanted to wear, or a little necklace your husband give you, or maybe your- something like that that you wore, now, to me, I don't think that's bad. Now, that's just me. Now remember, I make myself clear; that's my opinion. But I think it's the approach to it; it's the way you do it. See? It's the motive behind it. And when you see it's getting a hold of you, then leave the thing alone. But I think if you wore your wedding ring...” [Questions and Answers 2, Jeffersonville, IN 64-0823E] 

“Now, I know you Nazarene people, it used to be that you wouldn't even baptize a woman with a wedding ring on. See? I--I don't believe that as necessary. In the Bible they wore wedding rings, only it was a tablet they called it, around their head, nine pieces of coin in it, but I--to show they were married. Now, I think that's all right. If women want to dress and--and make themselves look decent, and clean, ladylike, why, I think there's not a thing to that, to me. But when you get to going to put that thing into making it a little pride, then you're wrong. It's your attitude. Do you women remember here not long ago they had what they called "scandal skirts"? I think they're coming out again, or they got worse. Be... Yeah, they're, "scandalous" now, instead of, "scandal." But they used to have a play back not long ago... They had the girls, young women... And 'course, the old ones would do it too, 'cause they're all want to be young. I don't mean you sisters, I mean the women of the world. And they'd cut their--their skirt up high, about a foot high every time, then wear some kind of a underneath garment look pretty. And when they would make a step, it would show this underneath garment with the lace, and frills, or whatever it was on it. Which, you know...” [Questions and Answers 2, Jeffersonville, IN 64-0823E] 

“Now, look, a man, there's not much to him when it comes to a body. And he, if he went half naked, it would--there wouldn't be no scandal to it. Not holding for men, but they... You know that--what kind of a woman would be tempted by a man with his shirt off and shorts on or whatever he had? The big old burly-looking thing, it looks sloppy and sickly, I--horrible. See these men out here... Well, I think it'd make a woman vomit to look at such a thing. If she had... But now, you take a woman and put her like that, that's a different temple. You understand? All right. But I think as far as a necklace, or... Now, if you go to loading yourself up like you went through the ten cent store down here with a magnet on you, I--I think that... Excuse that, I didn't mean to say that like that, but that--that's wrong.” [Questions and Answers 2, Jeffersonville, IN 64-0823E]





What does I Timothy 2:15 mean? If a woman has no children, can they be saved?


“Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.” [I Timothy 2:15]

“Now, the next question is one I think that maybe someone was--what I said the other night. 96. Explain a wife being saved by bearing a child. The wife isn't saved by bearing a child. But let's turn now to I Timothy 2:8 just a minute. And let's just find out what the Bible says about the child. Now, I realize that's a Catholic doctrine, that the Catholic says the woman is saved in childbearing, by bearing a child. But let's not... I don't believe that. I Timothy the 2nd chapter, and let's begin at the 8th verse and read just a moment now. All right, listen. In like manner also, that your women adore themselves in modest apparel... (We oughtn't to ask that, should we? Listen at this.)... with shamefacedness... (Whew.)... and sobriety; not with broiding her hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; (Brethren, I'm helping you here; I hope. All these new bonnets every day or three days you see. That ain't become Christians.) But (which becometh women Professing godliness) with good works. Let your women learn in silence with all subjections. But I suffer not a woman to teach, or to usurp authority over... men, but to be... silent. For Adam was first formed, and then Eve. Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if... (Now, He's not talking to the woman of the world, having babies.)... if she continues in faith... (See? If she continues. She's already... That's the woman he's talking about, the woman that's already saved. See?)... and charity and holiness with all sobriety.” [Questions and Answers on The Holy Ghost, Jeffersonville, IN 59-1219] 

“Not by having a baby makes her saved, but because that she is raising children, doing her duty, not raising cats, dogs, and whatmore to take the place of a child, as they do today, giving it a mother's love so that she can go out and run around all night. Some people do that. Sorry, but they do it. That's awful rude for me to say, but the truth is the truth. See? They don't want a baby to be tied down with it. But in childbearing, if she continues in faith, holiness, and all sobriety, she'll be saved. But the "if" is, you shall be saved too, "if" you're borned again. You shall--you can be healed "if" you believe. You can receive the Holy Ghost "if" you believe It, get ready for It, "if" you are ready for It. And she shall be saved "if" she keeps doing these things (See?), but not because she's a woman. So that's right, brother, sister. It isn't a Catholic teaching at all……” [Questions and Answers on The Holy Ghost, Jeffersonville, IN 59-1219]
