Should we trim off our beard and not shave?

Q: It is mentioned in Book of Leviticus 19:27, "Do not trim off the hair on your temples or trim your beards." (NLT). Can we follow this order in Christianity?

A: We do not literally follow the outward law now, because it is only a shadow of the reality of the life of Christ, which is worked out through the Holy Spirit in us now (Col 2:16-17). Now in the New Testament we act on a better promises and better covenant, which looks more inwardly than outwardly (Heb 8:5-6). Now we can keep a beard or we can be clean shaven, it does not have any influence to our spirituality because we are not under law but under grace (Rom 6:14). Jesus fulfilled THE LAW so that we can now live freely for God in any culture (Matt 5:17; Rom 8:1-5). Now sin is dealt a death blow by the righteous life of a believer, which is not just be confirmed to God's law on our outward actions but purity in our inner thoughts and words (Matt 5:21-30). Personally if you want to keep your beard unshaven, you can and you have not sinned or broken the law. But you cannot impose it as a standard for all Christians who think differently on this thing.

About is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
