Why Wearing Deodorant Is Biblical

God says to sacrifice burnt offerings as “an aroma pleasing to the LORD” d
ozens of times in the Old Testament (Numbers 29:8 for example).

We no longer have to sacrifice animals under the New Covenant, but Romans 12:1 tells us to “offer [our] bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.”

So if sacrifices give off a pleasing aroma, and we are supposed to be a living sacrifice, that means we should smell good, right?

Wear deodorant. Take a shower.

For God’s sake.

  1. 2 Corinthians 2:15
    For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are
    being saved and those who are perishing.

    My aroma is pleasing to God without a shower! Do you not agree?
