Blurring the Lines

**I stopped posting things as this post you are about to read because my blog readership had gone up and I didn't want to run people off.....but I realized that I can't be like that. I shouldn't "blog to please" if you will. Rather, I will stand for God and his word and not back down to anyone and is this post and it is not up for debate.

This topic has been on my mind for quite some time and isn't anything new especially to the USA, it is the blurring of the lines in today's society. Why the fuss over beliefs that women should look like women and men should like men? Why do others get upset that a woman wants to wear a dress and have long hair and be as FAR AWAY from looking like a man as she can be? And vice versa. Why the uproar? Why the stir? Why do SOME want to blur the lines and say it is ok? Why does a women want to put on pants and cut her hair? Is she wanting to look like a man?

Not only that but they twist the scriptures to fit themselves. God said it is an abomination for the woman to wear that which pertains to a man and vice versa. Also we all know that God put in the Bible the issue of HAIR and so it must be important enough if he included it in his word. ALL THOSE THAT LOVE GOD WILL obey his word! As soon as I saw it was in the Bible I had no qualms with obeying it. God said it, so be it, I'm doing it!

I feel FEMININE in a dress/skirt. I feel FEMININE with my long (uncut) hair and God said IT IS MY GLORY. Why would a woman want to cut off what God said was a glory AND a sign of submission to her husband? Simple.....she is rebellious and not submissive to not only her husband but to God.

We should want to be as close to visibly resembling our gender as we could be. Why would you want to be straddling the lines?

Society, the world, wants to "Blur the Lines." Aren't we supposed to not be like the world? Aren't we supposed to want to be ye separate? Why are some wanting to blend in with the world today? Simple, their heart is NOT right.

They see a woman with long hair and a dress and modest and go off saying don't push your religion on me. But the woman didn't say a word to them. What is that? That is called the God in that woman convicting them without even having to speak. She resembles FEMINITY by just her appearance. Or better yet, they use the "holier than thou" verbage to the person who convicts them to comfort their disobedience.

A real masculine man will desire a real feminine woman and vice versa. It is very simple. If you are a man and you desire your woman to look like a man, well you have issues and VICE VERSA! thanks I will continue to NOT be mistaken for a man, I have never, since wearing dresses been mistaken for a man but I have mistaken women for men because they had pants and I have mistaken some men for women because they had long hair. I have come up behind some and said Excuse me Sir, and SHE turns around and I'm like OOPS!

Wouldn't you shiver inside to think somebody had mistaken you for the opposite sex? Wouldn't that send some kind of DING DING to your mind? ***DING DING METER IS GOING OFF.......ANYBODY HOME??*** Wouldn't that make you want to look like your gender?

So here is a call to be ye seperate and God commands in his word! This isn't a choice or a religion.....this is God's holy word and if we have a problem with it we need to pray! God established the lines and it is satan who constantly strives to blur them.

Now the issue of hair.....

1 Corinthians 11:5-6
5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to figure out that women are to be covered. If a woman has her head uncovered it is JUST THE SAME as if she had a shaved head! It is shameful for a woman to have her head uncovered.

So, what is her covering? Well did you see the word "veil" at all in the Bible in 1 Corinthians 11 class? NO. Ok class, so what word did you see many times in 1 Corinthians 11? HAIR! Let's read this verse and see what God said was a woman's covering:

1 Corinthians 11:15
But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

It says HER HAIR is given her for a COVERING. So class, what was given her for a covering? Her hair! It is to be long, uncut hair. If she cuts it, its as shameful as being shaven. She is to not cut her hair.......again class, what is a glory to a woman? Her LONG hair. Well what about black women and some other ethnic backgrounds? Their hair sometimes will not grow past their shoulders. It is not the length as long, it is the uncut hair. So the word Long means letting hair grow naturally, uncut to whatever length it naturally grows. Why would you cut off your glory anyway??? I don't want to cut off what my God tells me is my glory......if he likes it, so do I LOL.

It is so simple. God made the Bible so simple, yet some want to make it hard. They want to throw veil in there........they want to say a woman can cut her hair as long as it is past her shoulders or long in do tell, what does a woman who can't grow her hair past her shoulders do then according to that view? God isn't prejudice! We have cut, shaven and uncut hair talked about in 1 Corinthians. The only one God said was right is UNCUT! "KISS: Keep It Simple Sister!" ; )

Then you have some that say you don't have to follow this part in the Bible that is in the NEW TESTAMENT. Hmmm........let's see here. God wrote the Bible. It is all inspired. He put this in there because he thought it was important. God doesn't waste words! If you don't follow these verses, you are in disobedience to God's word. Sin is disobedience to sin when you cut your hair if you are a woman! I haven't even got off on men, but most people have no problem with men keeping their hair short. Nature even tells us it is shame for a man to have long hair like a woman!!! EWWW........I want my man looking like a man thank you very much!! Oh by the way, he wants me looking like a woman. And evidently......God does too.

I totally, totally agree. I was thinking the same thing at one point, I was afraid of blogging certain things bu then realized if we did that it wold be because we are ashamed. I made up my mind to blog whatever was on my heart and not wrry people might think. They did not like Christ for what he ws saying either. Thank you for being a friend and a sister.

Wow!Thank you for the post and the conviction!I do have one question though.Does this mean no trimming dead ends?
Also,good for you for standing up for God and his word!We were just talking about that in Sunday school today:)Have a blessed evening!!

Christian Homekeeper said...

Thanks mom211911! No scissors....thus no trimming lol. If you trim then you really are cutting some of the hair off. I have found (and I have not cut my hair going on 9 years now) that I have hardly any split ends and cutting actually causes more.

When you do it because you are doing for God and what he has commanded, he will bless you. He blesses obedience.

Amazing you were just talking about that in your class, God knows. Also I felt led of the Holy Spirit to post this very strongly and I have had this post for several months now and just seemed fitting to let today be the day......

God will never lead you wrong, search the scriptures and pray and he will show you.

To add mom211911, I found a great article on hair and saved a few paragraphs that say it all about split ends. I keep my hair SUPER moisturized and thus that is why its so hard to find a split end lol.

Here is an excerpt:

"Every mane-curly, straight, short, long-is susceptible to split ends. Strands become dry and "empty" from a variety of assaults, including the environment, frequent heat styling, and harsh cleansers. In this condition, the cuticle remains open and feathery. These tiny raised layers are actually split ends, also called flyaways. They are weightless and lift away from the cuticle, creating that halo of frizz. Contrary to popular belief, split ends are found all over the hair and cannot be fixed with cutting. The best treatment for split ends is to feed your hair, just like your skin. A nourished hair shaft will have enough internal weight to keep the cuticle closed so that each curl is smooth. Clearly, trimming split ends is not an option-you might as well shave your head. Since split ends can appear anywhere, frequent deep conditioning is the only way to prevent them. Note: You'll see the most flyaways in the winter, when the hair is prone to extreme dryness. For a quick fix, spray your tresses with a leave-in conditioner to quench their thirst."

Hi there,
Fabulous! Talk about being clear and straight to the point. Hey, if you need me to come over and help you make ketchup let me know. At this point it doesn't seem like there are any tomatoes flying to make the ketchup. Keep up the good work. :)
