Reverend Tilman Hobson and his Bible Call Poem old time religion
Say! My Friend! Have you seen
Second Timothy, two fifteen?
First Thessalonians, five twenty-two,
Will tell you exactly what to do.
Thessalonians 5-22 tells us all to avoid the appearance of evil. I guess evil is fine, but the appearance of same is to be avoided. It has been used to discourage beards, drinking, playing cards, going to see a movie and wearing pants (for women) and as such, it is known as the evangelists catch-all.
