Are "Apostolic" Women Cutting Their Hair Now?

Yes, I know. Same ole, same ole.

But I've noticed through my social media friends that many an Apostolic female, especially in larger cities (as if that has anything to do with it), appear to be cutting their hair. I know some of these females are attendees of UPC and ALJC churches, but some go to independent churches.

I believe I saw somewhere on another Apostolic-aimed page that said their was a "new wave" of theology that specifically taught that "long hair" didn't necessarily mean "uncut hair". Therefore, a lady can cut (or "trim") her hair as long as it is still "long".

But what is "long"?

Wouldn't some form of "rule" have to be employed so the women would know what the pastor, or God for that matter, considered "long"?

Has anyone else come across anything similar?

Just wondering...

This is nothing new. Do you live under a rock?

Well . . .

Ladies in Apostolic churches have been cutting their hair, or trimming their hair for probably over one hundred years. Maybe even almost two thousand years.

UPCI Sunday school teachers cut their hair fifty years ago.

Did all ladies cut their hair? No. Some did. Some didn’t.

Did all churches that were UPCI have ladies that cut their hair? Probably not.

The UPCI is a lot like the southern baptist convention or our government. It waxes and wanes more or less conservative. It’s been that way since 1945.

Countless women have naturally short hair. They must wear wigs in service etc. There must be a broader context to Corinthians regarding the issue.

There's a difference between short and cut. I had two older sisters, one can see the difference between the two if you take time to look.

Generally speaking, I don't go around looking at women's hair (I don't really find it fascinating enough to care, personally). I'm just saying that it is possible to distinguish between the two.

Hispanic Apostolic women have been cutting their hair for decades. They hold a different view on I Corinthians 11.
