When the Bible says “even the very hairs of your head are all numbered” I don’t think wigs and weaves were included.
My first instinct was to make fun of this story. I mean, come on. He’s from Waco, Texas and he’s asking women not to wear hair weaves in Church. But after I read it I sorta’ thought this Texas pastor had a point. It may not be the best way to go about it but he’s got a point.
CBS in Houston reports that Pastor A.J. Aamir, a former Muslim turned Christian pastor, is asking women not to wear weaves in church. The story states that he says women who wear weaves “presents a false image of themselves.”
Now, he says that and I’m thinking we’ve got a bit of a nutjob on our hands, right? But then the story goes on.
His church is made up of a congregation of members that are dealing with financial hardships, but he notices they will go out and buy $300 weaves.
“I lead a church where our members are struggling financially. I mean really struggling,” Aamir told America Preachers. “Yet, a 26-year-old mother in my church has a $300 weave on her head. No, I will not be quiet about this.”
Hmmm. That seems like a pretty valid point, doesn’t it? I think we could probably say the same thing about IPhones, cable television, fancy cars and many other things.
