Ghanaian gospel artiste, Obaapa Christy is a firm believer that cosmetic improvements such as makeup are harmless in the sight of God, ceteris paribus!
Thus, she sees no problem with cosmetics and is perplexed as to why certain individuals are disseminating false news that ladies who use makeup will burn and rot in hell on judgment day.
Obaapa Christy made this pronouncement in chit-chat with Nana Romeo on Accra100.FM that the most essential thing for a Christian is to live a life that pleases God.
“Everything I have is by grace, even my make-up, which I do myself,” she explained.
“Someone once warned me that Makeup was terrible and evil and that people who used it would go to hell, yet she is the one who now wears heavy Makeup and exposes her hands and cleavage.”
“What I’m trying to convey is that watch what you say; just because you don’t know how to apply makeup doesn’t mean it’s terrible.
“What determines whether something is good or terrible is the motivation behind it. Despite the fact that I’ve put on makeup and am speaking to God’s children, I haven’t made up to sin in order to glorify God.”
There have been several dividing views among Christians in Ghana on the subject of makeup. As others belive makeup is sin, others especially Obaapa Christy is convinced beyond every doubt that God sees nothing wrong with makeup.
