Lilian I think its nt bad but i stand to be corrected.
Wanjira Not only bad,but is a sin!!
Tim In ancient times, prostitutes used to weave their hair with golden chains… there’s too many compromise in the Church already. God wants His remnant church to be simple n pure as possible. We should be a peciuliar people, clearly distinguished from others. Be blessed when others call u a strange or odd person, cos thats what the Bible says we ought to be..i hope im not offending anyone incl. myself, but let the Bible be our only guide..
Pauline Then if Apostle Paul says long hair is a crown,How can weaving be bad? Apostle Paul says Long hair is a covering, and a weave provides that covering.The problem should be a bald headed woman. As for Tim Nigaul above give evidence that it is only wprostitutes who used to weave their with chains.. Look at how Queen Esther was beautified. I wish I had some of the spa treatments she was given. A legalistic interpretation of the scriputure is not right , and that is what Jesus fought the Pharisees against.
Grace After reading 1Tim 2:9-10, 1Pet 3:1-5, Isa 3:16-24 kindly interpret and for all in this forum. Let the Bible be its own interpreter
Pauline After reading the above verses and 1 Cor 11:5, the primary thing for a woman is character, if a woman is beautified and no character it is worthless, But character and beauty are not a problem , Sarah was the most beautiful woman in her generation but with character, so was Queen Esther. the problem is beauty without character
Grace 1 Timothy 2:9-10 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 1 Peter 3:1-3
Likewise, ye wives, [be] in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation [coupled] with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward [adorning] of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; Isaiah 3:16-24
Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing [as] they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts. In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of [their] tinkling ornaments [about their feet], and [their] cauls, and [their] round tires like the moon, The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers, The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, The rings, and nose jewels, The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins, The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails. And it shall come to pass, [that] instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; [and] burning instead of beauty.
Beryl and where in the scriptures is short hair for women advocated?…… and just a point of may i know… worldly women also keep short hair including some prostitutes got their hairs shaved, so what difference are we talking about here?
Jean It depends on how one interprets English. When it says by…. Not by…. It does not mean it is not being allowed. One must not just concentrate on outward adornment but I believe it is saying the heart and character are what is important not the hairstyle…again not saying that it is bad.
Pauline So 1 Tim 2:9-10, 1Pet 3:1-5 emphasis primacy of character, and spiritual qualities but do not forbid beautification of a woman. that is why Paul say that that long hair is the crown of a woman. Apostle Paul wrote both Timothy and Corinthians he was not confused. First is character ,second is beauty.
