"they put new wine into new bottles" - Appearance and Truth

Fukushima City, Japan

Appearance and Truth

Christ Jesus said, "Don't judge people by their appearance!"

In other words, we should not try to look better than others for the purpose of gaining more favor than others.

This truth is often adopted by mystery novelists.  The true culprit of a crime is sometimes a person who looks so innocent, pretty, or handsome.

Indeed, there are no descriptions in the Bible that suggest that followers of Christ Jesus included beautiful women, though there might have been some such women.

Anyway, the Bible teaches that the world became bad since men started to marry good looking women.

Mat 9:17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
