Let’s talk a little bit about plastic or cosmetic surgery. My two year old son likes to watch a toddler show called ‘Bob the Builder’. The characters sing a little tune that says ‘Can we build it?’ and the kids respond ‘yes we can!’
Well, today science and technology has made it possible to ‘rebuild’ yourself. If you want it bigger, smaller, tighter, lighter, or whatever floats your boat you can purchase it at a price. Yes it is very tempting and most of the results are life changing and sometimes needed because of a bad accident. Consider brothers and sisters that may have been injured and maimed in the military or someone born with a genetic defect like cleft palate. People with serious burn injuriesbneed skin graphs or possible extensive dental work because of the loss of teeth or a disease. Other medical situations that may require plastic surgery are breast or brain cancer and that is completely different from getting cosmetic surgery just to enhance what you already have to make you physically more attractive by the current beauty standards of this world.
For example, geting a nose job for insecurity reasons and not because you can’t breathe or have a sinus problem that is potentially harmful to your health or deemed life threatening is a lust demon and very carnal. You have to ask yourself why you want to alter or change what your physical appearance may be?
So what price are you willing to pay? Actually you could pay with your life and there have been many celebrities and common folk who have died either on the table or shortly thereafter for fulfilling the lust of their eyes to fit in this society’s ideal of what is expected and what is beautiful. Some bleaching creams have caused severe burns and blindness in some users. It is so bad that people have gone out of the country to perform surgeries that they would otherwise not be able to afford in America. Also many so-called doctors and illegal non-certified plastic surgeons are popping up performing procedures and doing injections that only God knows what is contained in them. With this comes the risk of not only diseases, but awful disfiguring procedures done in such a way that there is no coming back from it. Look all throughout cyberspace and the news media and you’ll be able to review photos and read the articles for yourself.

“In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trump ; for the trump shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed.”
