Do you Have Dreadlocks? See What The Bible says About Them

Dreadlocks have become very common nowadays. Many have ended wearing their hair in dreadlocks as fashion statement. It is longer a strange thing to see both adults and children in dreadlocks.

However there has been opposing views about dreadlocks. In most African communities dreadlocks is viewed as evil other people regard it as fashion. In the Bible Verses most supports the idea of dreadlocks while few versus are against it.

Numbers 6:5 ESV“All the days of his vow of separation, no razor shall touch his head. Until the time is completed for which he separates himself to the Lord, he shall be holy. He shall let the locks of hair of his head grow long. Also read Ezekiel 44:20,Judges 16:13,Levitcus 21:5, Judges 16:19, Ezekiel 8:3,1 Samuel 1:11, 2 Samuel 14:26 and Songs of Solomon 11:5.

However, in some verses such as Leviticus 19:27 ESV which says "You shall not round off the hair on your temples or mar the edges of your beard." are against the act of wearing dreadlocks. Also read 1 Corinthians 11:14-15.

According to me, I just view dreadlocks as a fashion statement and it has no connection with someone being evil or unspritual but it only depends on your intentions behind. This can elaborated by the doctrines of Christ Jesus in the book of Mark 7:15 (you can read the whole chapter to understand better ). what are your views about dreadlocks and the people with dreadlocks?
