We totally understand the dress accordingly part. He is clearly pointing out that in Christianity, clothes don’t make the man.
I get it.
I am Apostolic
I believe in One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism.
I believe in water baptism by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.
I believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost, evidenced by speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
I believe in living a holiness lifestyle, inwardly and outwardly, without which no man shall see the Lord.

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...
Brother, standards was and may still be to this day is how certain church goers judge you. If you’re not dressed a certain way or your hair isn’t the way the last preacher said it should be then by some checklist you’re on your way to a devils hell. I believe in modest dress, I believe that the bride doesn’t look like the world nor should act as the world.

Yet, we left off how to truly love a soul like Christ did. When our Lord walked this earth he rebuked the religious hypocrites for their unbalance of the law, he went as far as to call them “whited graves”. Some believers feel better if they can find fault with another believer, it somehow uplifts their spirit if another has fallen.

Understand this, if a women is cutting her hair, if a man is growing his hair, if someone has fallen into a sin we are commanded to help that brother or sister, instead of making fun of them, or using the scriptures in a perverted way to settle damnation upon their spirit. Be a stepping stone and not a stumbling block.
