‘I Was Once Rejected In Church Because Of My Beards’ – Man Shares His Story
According to this Facebook user, Yemi Fetch pictured above, he was asked to stop being a
worker in his church because he refused to shave his beards. Read his experience below …
“I was once rejected in church because of these beards of mine. Shave it or forget about being a worker” they said. As obstinate as i was, i knew i wasn’t going to let anyone define me by my look, so i left for good. You see, the church is an institution, and every institution has a system in place — a system of control.
Members are expected to devote themselves to the system and abide by the rules. But i hate rules. I felt christianity should guarantee freedom from discrimination. I was wrong. I expected too much. The church is a place
where you’re assessed before being assigned a seat, respect is based on
social standing and you dare not open your mouth to question authority. But i’ve moved on. After all, Jesus didn’t die so i could become a member of a church. So i say, to hell with the system they put in place to control minds. To hell with their expectations of what a christian should look like. To hell with religion. Yeah, sometimes i feel the need to enter a serene place for worship, especially when i need to converse with my soul. It could
be a mosque, church or even shrine….you see, the universe pays attention to the yearning of the soul without asking for religious affiliation.
