Preaching the Gospel
Should all preach the gospel? I think not. When a person's focus is on the length of a woman's hair, I say find another church. Especially, the person who says with teaching authority that a woman must have long hair, and stands in front of his listeners beardless. This is a clear illustration of not practicing what he preaches. Clearly, in (1Cor.11:5) under the conduct of woman --says, "But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, for that is one and the same as if her head were shaved. (6) For if a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn" (shaved). So, where are all those Christians with long hair, or with long hair wearing head coverings? Paul, is giving us an example of God-given "oral traditions". Where was the preachers beard? As read in Psalm 133:2 "It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down the beard of Aaron". Is it really about our hair afterall? Or, is it about Love. Love of God, and love of neighbor. What have you done for another lately? Is one example,PERIOD. Customs are optional. Respect, in the way of our dress and actions, is expected and appreciated. I would think, a person who is clean and dressed in good taste would cover the subject. We are justified by faith. Having the faith and being in "right belief" of Jesus Christ, is what is required. Think of it, if we were so intent on following tradition to the letter of the law, all men would be required to be circumcised, and bearded. God who loves us, gives us a new life through Grace. We are adopted, having a new birth through Baptism, and are in the process of transformation, becoming the sons of God by His grace and His love. We must know, believe in, and worship the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Anyone that does not preach the Love of God, does not know Him. God our Creator, loves us unconditionally, just as we are. He loved us first. Customs come and go, and it is nice to keep traditions, as long as they do not cause contentions which prevent the focus to be where it should be in the first place---and that's on the gospel message, hairy or hairless.

Many will wonder how I came up with this very unusual title. Who in their right mind would want to blog on this topic. A mom, grandmother, or anyone who cares for small children, worldwide. What if I told you to kiss the boo-boo is the "cure all" for all ages? That has been my philosophy for and the basis for this blog. What am I, I am a boo-boo kisser. I make it all better. I am sharing my thoughts and views, not intended to offend any reader, but to express the lessons life has taught me. These are solely my experiences and reflect my feelings! Looking for others to share as well...
