Re: Are "Apostolic" Women Cutting Their Hair Now?

The Apostolic Assembly Of The Faith In Christ Jesus believes in a veil as the headcovering. They also believe a woman should not cut their hair last I knew.

Most allow haircutting but insist on head coverings.

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...
Good morning Bro. Flame.

Many of the Apostolic women I encountered, before and after, did trim their hair. I have always held that long hair did not necessarily mean uncut, and this the whole issue of 1Corinthians 11 is more of order and submission than just hair.

I'm no expert, but I have known some women who have hair who did not live in order or submission to their husband. They would even be on borderline witchcraft, threatening to pray for God to "get them" when people did not bow to their will. They, in my thoughts, violated their hair.

Just my thoughts on the subject. Have a great day.

Heathen flappers in the 1920s dressed more modestly than today's average Walmarter.

I know some Hispanic Pentecostals from Alabama that are very liberal. About they only thing they do that would fall under "traditional Pentecostal attire" is the women don't wear pants. They all wear makeup, jewelry, get their nails done, and the men wear shorts and beards.

Ain't that the truth. Sinners had more decency 50 years ago than most Christians do today.
