Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

People treated me the same way with character assassination when I was still in the UPC, all the ideas were fresh and I still had long, uncut hair. I know, I know, this will also be blamed on me....

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

Surprising how offended people get when I speak against this position then.

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

I think holy magic hair is linked to witchcraft. Uncut hair is just uncut hair. If you believe your uncut hair gives you power and control=witchcraft. If you have uncut hair, you just have uncut hair.

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

I agree that a woman's long hair doesn't give her any power or authority at all. I do agree that, according to the Bible, a woman's long hair is a sign. I think that when you take this sign and twist...

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

Maybe you're being the stumblingblock. I'll just leave it at that. I'm not going to allow a couple people on the internet to let me determine what my calling is.

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

No, that's not what I said. Lots of women need to break out of the mind prison.

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

No problem! For some people, staying seems to be the right decision, keeping standards seems to be the right decision. I am not here to judge that. For some who leave, they get into big trouble and...

If you believe your life will be a mess if you leave, I'd rather you stay too.

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

It's not that they don't believe in it. It that there is a difference between the hardline message and what was once called the "Light Doctrine".

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

Not everyone in the UPC even believes this in the hardline way. Some believe that you MUST do this in order to be saved-some believe this in a softer way. It was the difference in the two sides of...

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

If you are asking if I believe the hardline, you must 1. Repent and then 2. Be baptized with a preacher saying the name of Jesus over you while you are immersed and then 3. Speak in tongues and...

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

So, you admit that uncut isn't so clear. So, those of us who choose to cut our hair (but not like a man's cut-to be clear) and don't want to "err on the side of caution" are still blessed and saved,...

I will give you this-I think you are the first person that's ever said it's salvational so at least you are being honest! Most people say it's not salvational.

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

Yeah, I'm all about the feminazis. That's why I don't march with the pro-choice movement, cringe when I see a butch cut on women, and am seen as extremely conservative and unenlightened by my...

Exactly. They always said they were not salvational when I was in the church. But.....if you don't do them....you are like Jezebel.....you open your home to evil spirits.....you are a promoter of...

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

Thank you.

I'll tell you how I handled my disagreement with standards when I was still UPC. I felt I was bound to honor my husband and the church, even though I felt free of the mind prison. Once...

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

I assume you are insinuating that I have a bad attitude simply because I speak out on this issue. I'll overlook that.

I noticed they are starting to get away from the beards issue more than in the past. But men have always been able to push the envelope in ways that women can't. If women say there is a problem and...

Re: Submission? Or Power and Control?

The way I see it, the accusations of "bitter", "can't let it go" and all that are just ways to try and silence the discussion. The uncut hair doctrine really can't withstand scrutiny and so people...
