9And if any man die very suddenly by him, and he hath defiled the head of his consecration; then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it.

if they kicked you out because of that maybe its time to find a new church.seeing as christianity is about loving others as yourself, accepting other peoples differences, and loving them just the same. its about becoming more like jesus and reaching out to the poor and needy, not about discriminating just because of someone's hair.

John the Baptist had dreadlocks and Jesus' brother had them down to his ankles. Samson had seven locks and when they were cut he lost his great strength.Can't really prove it as it they are not around today.... I will try to find a reference but don't hold me to that :) Hope that helpsAlso....if they kidded you out, I agree with the others. Find a new church! They have forgotten to 'Love thy neighbour' and all that.

i'd tell the preist "fine, kick me out i'll just create my own religion..one that makes sense and yours will crumble and fall..remember judhe not lest the be judged? well ye be judged ye be judged guilty of turning your flock away from god, guilty of predjuduce and hatred. who would christ want by his side a man who simply wants to be a "good christian" (whatever that means) or a preist who wants to control how his parishoners dress look think and act through force and fear of being cast out?jesus said, come onto me, not get the hell out..my locks have a greatter chance of getting me into heaven then your church ever did anyway..

Sister Rags is right about the controlling aspect! Sometimes events like this in our life are eye-openers into what power we have been allowing others to have over us. In this case, an entire congregation. That is not a loving environment; I wish you some peace.Sister Rags said:
How horrifying that your church has an issue with dreadlocks. I guess now I HAVE heard it all.

Please search all around online, for there is a load of info about Jews and early Christians having dreads. LOADS of info. Read about the Nazarites...just one group.

As for a beard...WTH?!?! The Bible CLEARLY states that every man over the age of 13 should have a beard. Orthodox Jews never shave off their beards, under any circumstances except medical necessity.

But I will be very blunt: Any church that is so controlling is not a spiritually healthy environment. Please take that into serious consideration.

the preist kicked you out for being holier then him, most likely he had just finnished molesting an alterboy and then saw you being holier then he ever could be and he feared youstart your own churchu wont have to pay taxes and you'll always have alterboys to bow to your authority and kiss your ass (literaly)sorry dont mean to be insulting just find it pretty ironic that the church accepts and protects molesters but how dare you let your hair get tangled?
