From Kendra Thaler's Blog...Its Truth

What I Believe and Why I Almost Ended My Blog...

Let me first begin by saying that I Believe in Uncut Hair. As Bishop Wilson said, I don't have to tell you why I believe it, I want you to tell me why you DON'T believe it.

However for your reference, I will gladly explain.

  • "But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering." (1 Corinthians 11:15) The word Long in Greek (the language the new testament was originally written in) means uncut. Hence having uncut hair is a glory to us. Cut means cut. Trimming is cutting. Dusting is cutting.
  • "For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels"(1 Corinthians 11:10) If you follow the order that was set by God, "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God." (1 Corinthians 11:3) you will have the power of angels. If the woman is out of order, she will not have the power on her head because of the angels. God is a God of order.
  • "Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God." (1 Corinthians 11:13-16) Nature teaches us that its a shame for a man to have uncut (long) hair. However, if a woman has uncut hair it is a glory to her. It isn't about length, it is about being uncut. Paul wraps this up by saying if anyone seems to be contentious that they have no such custom neither the churches of God. Therefore, every church had that custom. The Apostolic church of the living God STILL has that custom. If anyone seems to be contentious- take it up with God. Because He set the order in place.

Now I probably sound a little agitated. I am! I am upset in the Holy Ghost because there are people teaching false teachings and doctrines of devils. Hence there is a spirit of confusion that has fallen upon Apostolic churches. I do not care whether you believe it or not, I BELIEVE IT because God's word says it. Let me share with you some comments I have received:

"You blog is very disturbing, attributing uncut hair (on the woman) to the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. I have always cut my hair, sister, I am apostolic, I dont wear pants, makeup or jewelry, however, our pastor allowed us to cut our ends. I NEVER LOST my prayer annointing, nor power in prayer. I am sorry, where is that in the Bible? Laying my hair on someone? where is that in the Bible sister? This is bizarre doctrine creeping into our apostolic churches. DO NOT ADD OR TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORD OF GOD SISTER. its just not biblical."
"I don't know... I too am apostolic and I have very kinky curly hair when pulled straight is past my bottom. I hate it. I hate the tangles. I hate the frizz. I hate not knowing what in the world to do with all this hair. Cutting or not cutting hair is NOT a salvation issue and I don't like feeling like I HAVE to have long hair or else. If I cut it then everyone will whisper that I'm backslidden and I will be kicked out of the music ministry I love so much. Shouldn't it be up to me and God? It feels like being manipulated. Do this or else you're out of our Apostolic club. It just doesn't seem right to me.."
To those who have written such comments- It saddens me that you have been led astray from the truth of Gods word. I respect the word of the Lord too much to add or take away. And I respect my sisters in the Lord too much to tear them down. Please read your bible and ask God to help you. This is a revelation and a more excellent way. Before you get upset and tear others down for what they believe, pray and ask God. Test the spirit by the spirit.

We have got to STOP tearing one another down. This is why I almost ended my blog.

But devil you are a liar in the name of Jesus! I refuse to be pushed around. There are women who need support and help. So just so you all know, I am not going anywhere.

See you soon <3




  1. Hey Girl! I happened upon your blog today, and wanted to say that I'm glad to hear you speaking out for the glory that has been given to us as women - our uncut hair. I was just talking with a friend earlier today who was so frustrated with not being able to fix her hair right. I can totally relate because I am so not talented in hairstyles, but I am always appalled when I hear of Apostolic women who want to cut their hair just so it's easier to style (or so they think it will be!). I must be honest and admit that there are times when I've complained about my hair being too frizzy, too thin, too troublesome, and each time I can feel the Lord chiding me, asking why I feel the place to tell Him that His glory is not beautiful. It puts it all into perspective every time! Our hair is not an accessory to our wardrobe; it is a symbol of holiness to bring glory to God.

    1. Sorry it took me so long to reply, but I totally agree with you! I feel that it is the world that is trying to make us hate our Glory!!

    2. Wow that is an awesome way to look at it! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I wanted to say thank you for your post on uncut hair. I am new to Apostolic Pentecostal things (Baptist background) and the hair thing was one that I did not understand very well until I spoke with my pastor and his wife. It is always encouraging to know that there are other girls out there who believe their hair is their glory and it doesn't matter how long it is, so long as you don't cut it.

  3. Amen sister!! A lot of Apostolic churches teach their women that it's the length that matters, not UNCUT. But I believe that the woman should also study on their own. When a man of God teaches you something it's also your responsibility to study and search it out to show yourself approved. I am glad I came upon your blog.
