Okay I was referred to this site from yahoo answers because I could not find answers to my questions. About six months ago I was kicked out of a church for growing my hair out and my intentions to dread and the beard did not help lol. Anyways I keep hearing people say there are biblical references to dreadlocks and what not but nobody can give them to me. So what are biblical references to dreads in the bible? Any info would be great, thanks ahead of time!
but honestly any church that would dare kick u out for your hair is a church worth having nothing to do with
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.
