Constance Scott's comment on 2010-12-30 22:51:41:
This scripture has been used for years as a tool for sin toward woman that cut their hair. I am a Saved woman and just had seventeen inches cut from my head due to having bad headachs. People looked at me as if i had lost my mind. But I know the scripture is used out of content. It siad that if a woman has long hair it is "her" glory not anyone elses glory.It never said its a sin to cut her hair,or that a woman has got to have long hair in order to be or stay saved. Dont get me wrong I think I and most Woman look and like long hair ,but we have to know that God is much bigger and more concerned about better things than this small and unpresidented issue. Now Im not saying that woman ought to go cutting off all their hair because if you have a husband, I believe its something to be talked about with your spouse.Truly let these words I speak to you be my personal thouhgt and some be of truth.Heavenly smiles Constance Scott.
