A Christian Beauty Vies For Miss USA Title
The Christian Diarist ^ | June 2, 2012 | JP

Posted on 06/02/2012 9:36:08 AM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST

The Miss USA pageant will be held tomorrow. I’m praying that Miss Texas – Brittany Booker – wins the crown.

Not just because she is a “stunning, 5’11”, green-eyed model,” as her Miss Texas biography describes her. And not because she looks fabulous in both an evening gown and a swimsuit (both of which are required in the competition).

I’m backing 21-year-old Brittany because she is a devoted Christian.

And while she is beautiful on the outside, she is even more beautiful on the inside.

A Houston native, Brittany was raised in a Christian family, by parents who instilled in her strong morals and ethics. Those values were reinforced at BayArea Christian School, from which young Brittany graduated third in her class.

Miss Texas is a junior at the Universityof Houston, where she majors in psychology/human development and family studies. When she’s not in the classroom, she’s a regular volunteer at Hope Village Home for the Mentally Challenged.

Brittany devotes her Sundays to praise and worship, using the exceptional singing talent the Lord gave her in her church choir.

What I particularly admire about Miss Texas is that she is no closet Christian, hiding her beliefs so that she can get ahead in this fallen world in which we live, this decadent society of ours that has defined deviancy down.

Indeed, Freddie Cullins, former administrator at BayArea Christian School, attests that Brittany “is bold in expressing her personal Christian faith.”

In that trait, Miss Texas brings to mind Carrie Prejean, the former Miss California who controversially finished first runner-up in the 2009 Miss USA pageant.

Prejean, an unabashed Christian, was sandbagged by pageant judge Perez Hilton, the gay Hollywood gossip blogger, who used his final question of the contest to ask her where she stood on same-sex marriage.

Had she danced around the question, Prejean almost certainly would have been crowned Miss USA.

But the young woman stood up for her Christian beliefs. She told Hilton that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Given Brittany Booker’s boldness is expressing her Christian faith, it would not be surprising if one of the judges of this year’s Miss USA competition deviously decides to ask her a question that could cost her the title.

That’s why I’ve gone on the Miss USA website to vote for Brittany to make the pageant’s semifinals. And that’s why I’m praying the young Christian women wins the crown.

Are they going to ask her about homosexual marriage? Then, when she gives the “wrong” answer, will she be the subject of a media smear campaign?????

If recent "Amerrican Idol" shows are any indication ... God ain't allowin' ANY o' His people win these glamor/fame shows.

Devote Christianity includes separation from the world.

Seperation from the world huh? Last time I checked MY Bible, it said to be IN the world, not seperated from it.

She looks good in the pictures but it’s not my favorite type of face. It looks too bony. I like softer features.

(I realize not many noticed the face...)

John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

1John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

“Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness.” - 1 Timothy 2:9-10

She should dress like a Christian if she wanted to be treated like a Christian.

XXX-Wrong answer.

Try reading the verse in context.

14 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? 16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said,

The passage is clearly talking about PARTNERING with unbelievers.

I find it interesting you mention this verse, written by Paul, who referred himself as the Apostle to the Gentiles. Can't be an Apostle to unbelievers if one seperates themselves from them. One must go out amongst them.

Jesus' own words in John 17
13 But now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves. 14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.

I’m with you Brother.

I’m also reminded of the Biblical story of Esther, the Jewish orphan girl who ascended to queen of Persia. She became the wife of King Xerxes after a competition among all the beautiful young virgins in the empire, for which they spent 12 months of beautification.

God used that beauty contest to put Esther in a position where she could save her people. So who’s to say God would not use a beauty pageant to put young Brittany in a position where she can serve His kingdom purpose?

I agree. Her features are somewhat 'haughty.' Not that she can help it of course, but like you said I prefer a sweeter, homier type of face.

As for the rest of her I tried not to look. Christian? Maybe so, but she has an interesting interpretation of a biblical dress code.

“True beauty comes from within.”

Such a shame she can’t mouth this lame pageant platitude during the bikini portion.

Until the late 20th century a woman claiming to be a devout Christian who thought it necessary to demonstrate her “virtues” by getting tarted up and parading herself in shiny underwear for ogling millions would be mocked, at best, and rightly so.

They need part of the competition to be without makeup. Many of these so called beauties are merely good face painters.

Well, I must be mistaken to think a girl half naked before the world was not to be considered unChristian.

I guess those girls don't eat and drink winning and glamor and physical beauty from wake-up to lights out.

I'm surely misled to think that I might look upon that woman and not commit adultery WITH her.

I'm SO blind.

On the other hand, she is presenting herself on stage amongst a large group not at some peep show offering lap dances. The vast vast majority of her time as Miss Universe or Miss USA will not be spent in a swimsuit or an evening gown but she will have access to all types of people that might be influenced for Christ through her (especially impressionable young women seeking healthy role models).

There are many who think it is a sin to work on Sunday but Tim Tebow worked on Sundays last fall and made an impact on the lives of countless people he couldn't have reached accept as an NFL quarterback.

So don't be so narrow-minded. If this woman believes that a small amount of exhibitionism will help her ultimately reach others with the gospel, I wish her well. God has used prostitutes to do His will in the past - why not beauty queens?

They're so fake they have bar codes.

I wonder who paid for them. If she didn't and neither did Daddy, then who? If she financed them and is still making payments, what happens if she starts missing them? Does the repo man come after her with a scalpel and a local anesthetic?

I suppose that if Paula White can get in the pulpit with a boob job, she can win Miss USA with one.

What American Idol are YOU watching? The top two in 2011 were devout Christians, especially the Idol Winner Scotty McCreery, who held visibly onto his cross the week his mentor had to be Lady Gaga! And the 2nd runner up this year was a devout Christian. Not sure about the current winner, but the 1st runner up is Catholic.

Yeah, I imagine you'd rebuke Paul for his opinion on eating meat offered to idols.

I mean, REAL Christians would never do that either.

Just as REAL Christians don't dance.

Just as REAL Christians don't drink alcohol AT ALL.

Just as REAL Christians don't smoke.

Just as REAL Christians don't play cards.

Just as REAL Christians don't play any sports on Sundays.

Just as REAL Christians don't shop on Sundays.

Just as REAL Christians don't cook on Sundays.

Just as REAL Christians don't drive cars on Sundays.

Just as REAL Christians don't associate with drunkards.

Just as REAL Christians ____________ (Fill in the blank as to what YOU feel makes a REAL Chritian)

Its quite obvious that anbody who does ANY of these things IS NOT a REAL Christian.

I caught a few of the episodes last year and I DID get caught up in this years AI.

I forget last year, but there was a Christian that got in the etop three or so and was voted out.

This year Joshua had a lot more goin' on than Philip, but he was voted out.

Jessica was too young (IMO), so Philip Philips won.

Maybe my reasoning doesn't match yours, but then, we all have different elements forming our flow chart of thought pattern.

Judgment on the Daughters of Zion

16 ¶ Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
17 therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts.

(go 'head n' tell me you ain't lookin')

18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon,
19 the chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,
20 the bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,
21 the rings, and nose jewels,
22 the changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,
23 the glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the veils.
24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.
25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.
26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.


It's a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God

Ahh yes...Lets just look at this discussion.

Knarf:
If recent "Amerrican Idol" shows are any indication ... God ain't allowin' ANY o' His people win these glamor/fame shows.
Devote Christianity includes separation from the world.

MM:
Seperation from the world huh? Last time I checked MY Bible, it said to be IN the world, not seperated from it.
Maybe yours says something else.

Knarf:
Come ye out from among them and be the therefore separated.(Corinthians 6:17)

MM:
XXX-Wrong answer.
Try reading the verse in context.

14 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? 16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said,

The passage is clearly talking about PARTNERING with unbelievers.

I find it interesting you mention this verse, written by Paul, who referred himself as the Apostle to the Gentiles. Can't be an Apostle to unbelievers if one seperates themselves from them. One must go out amongst them.

Jesus' own words in John 17
13 But now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves. 14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.

Your whole stated premis was seperation, and you used a bible verse to support that.

I pointed out the CONTEXT of the verse with other verses around it.

That is trying to "rightly divide the word (of truth)"...not trying to make the Word say what we want it to say, or think it says.

I then pointed out that Paul called himself the Apostle to the Gentiles, and to be that he had to go to them, NOT seperate himself from them.

Next I used Jesus' own words which stated that he was SENT in to the world and that he SENT his followers in to the world.

He was also PRAYING that God wouldn't take them out of the world, BUT to keep them from the evil one.

Lastly

Knarf:
Well, I must be mistaken to think a girl half naked before the world was not to be considered unChristian.
I guess those girls don't eat and drink winning and glamor and physical beauty from wake-up to lights out.
I'm surely misled to think that I might look upon that woman and not commit adultery WITH her.
I'm SO blind.

Not one counter to my post. Nothing about "seperation".

Just a rant about a girl being half naked, and eating and drinking winning and glamour and physical beauty from wake up to lights out.

And a continued rant about committing or not committing adultery with her.

Yes...that is what I'd call spin.

You avoided the subect at hand, "seperation", and began ranting about something else.

..........................................

Now on the other hand, there might be some basis to your other views that I WOULD agree with. (But those we weren't discussing).

But it is also important to note WHAT the article is about.

The article is about a beautiful woman in a beauty pageant, Who is openly a self proclaimed Christian, and unapologetic about it, in a venue that can be openly hostile and ruthless to ANY Christians, unknown or up front.

You say you're not holier than thou, and yet you're attacking a beautiful woman, who admits to her own beauty AND YET, who proclaims Christ and her following of him, OVER her beauty, in a venue that WORSHIPS beauty and denigrates Christians, or anybody who tries to uphold morals.

I could have "understood" the attack if this was a piece on a beauty queen who was espousing Christian platitudes just to garner her favorability or fame. Instead, I see this as an article trying to boost and encourage a woman of beauty and substance, and you looking for a way, ANY WAY, to assasinate her, because she doesn't fit YOUR ideal.
