    In another forum I asked if it was a sin for a Christian man to have long hair. The majority said it would be. However, Troy Polamalu of the steelers is a devout Christian and he had long hair. Kurt Warner's wife Brenda, has short hair and she is a devout Christian. Don't you guys think it would be the condition of ones heart?

    Yeah, I want to grow my hair longer before I can't grow it anymore. It's already receding and thin in the back, so like I said, I want to grow some while I can. I also really believe that the condition of your heart is what counts with the Lord. Thanks for noticing buddy.

    rbell -

    (Hey....I just accidentally typed your name wrong...I typed it rebell.....is your screen name short for rebel? Are you trying to tell us something about yourself?)

    Now, I don't know if that picture is a sinful picture or not, but it just took about 2 years off of my life!!

    The Bible does not say that long hair on a man is a sin. What it says is this:

    1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

    That word 'shame' is translated as such:

    atimia atimia at-ee-mee'-ah

    from 820; infamy, i.e. (subjectively) comparative indignity, (objectively) disgrace:--dishonour, reproach, shame, vile.

    So, it is not a sin for a man to have long hair, but it is a shame.

    What is the exact border of "shame" then? 2 3/4 inches? 3 1/16 inch? 3 27/64 inches? What?

    How about when the man's hair causes him to be mistaken for a woman? Would that not be shameful?

    Don't we have a few forums other than sports where we can talk about hair?

    Probably so, ccr, but the thread was started here and the question asked.

    Maybe it should be moved to General Baptist Discussions?

    This topic is not really germane to sports. I will move it to the general discussion forum and bump it.

    So, now we have two threads on long hair by the same poster. Is that the long and short of it?
