I have noticed two significant things.

1) Over the last few years I have had some hair thin, specifically last year and the year before which coincided with the most stressful years I can remember.
2) This hair loss has rebounded and is very close to being back to where it was in a comparatively short period of time, say 6 months.

I attribute this to prayer, a positively changing mental state, more overall contentment and the practice of patience, as well as the ingestion of medicinal tinctures and a better diet. Of course all of this is a work in progress.

I want to post this chapter from the new testament because I have been remembering a specific line from it that I will highlight in the chapter dealing with hair loss. I now always wonder when I see someone balding or bald if they have stretched themselves to thin or if they are living in a way that is not in alignment with the divine will. My father in law is completely Bald; and seems to be a nice guy however it makes one wonder. Is it solely genetics or does conduct and action affect it? If it is solely genetics my balding should have continued regardless of what I did. (and what I have been doing is trying to humble myself before God.) This whole concept is very interesting to me and I am posting this in hopes that this small, strange testimony may be interesting to somebody else as well.

Luke 21 : KJV

The Poor Widow's Offering

(Mark 12:41-44)



1And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. 2And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. 3And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: 4For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

Temple Destruction Foretold

(Matthew 24:1-4; Mark 13:1-9)



5And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said, 6As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

7And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass? 8And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. 9But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

Witnessing to All Nations

(Matthew 24:9-14; Mark 13:10-13)



10Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

12But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. 13And it shall turn to you for a testimony. 14Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: 15For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. 16And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. 17And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. 18But there shall not an hair of your head perish. 19In your patience possess ye your souls.

The Destruction of Jerusalem

(Matthew 24:15-25; Mark 13:14-23)



20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Leviticus 13:40-49​


English Standard Version

Chapter 13​

40 “If a man’s hair falls out from his head, he is bald; he is clean.

41 And if a man’s hair falls out from his forehead, he has baldness of the forehead; he is clean.

42 But if there is on the bald head or the bald forehead a reddish-white diseased area, it is a leprous disease breaking out on his bald head or his bald forehead.

43 Then the priest shall examine him, and if the diseased swelling is reddish-white on his bald head or on his bald forehead, like the appearance of leprous disease in the skin of the body,

44 he is a leprous man, he is unclean. The priest must pronounce him unclean; his disease is on his head.

45 “The leprous person who has the disease shall wear torn clothes and let the hair of his head hang loose, and he shall cover his upper lip and cry out, ‘Unclean, unclean.’

46 He shall remain unclean as long as he has the disease. He is unclean. He shall live alone. His dwelling shall be outside the camp.

47 “When there is a case of leprous disease in a garment, whether a woolen or a linen garment,

48 in warp or woof of linen or wool, or in a skin or in anything made of skin,

49 if the disease is greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin or in the warp or the woof or in any article made of skin, it is a case of leprous disease, and it shall be shown to the priest.

2 Kings 2

23 He went up from there to Bethel, and while he was going up on the way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!”

24 And he turned around, and when he saw them, he cursed them in the name of the Lord. And two she-bears came out of the woods and tore forty-two of the boys.

Hey, thanks for sharing. I think that cleared it up for me and I was unaware of those verses.
Gotta run but may write more later.

Definitely won't be entertaining that thought anymore. It makes sense thank you.
Father in law has a good heart and hence I had a hard time reconciling this observation.

I suppose the distinction in the text you quoted here is quite important.
In my case it seemed like the hair loss was intricately linked to my life and the way I was moving through it.
I guess the reality is that although my experience is valid, it would be a mistake to judge according to superficiality.

I do find it interesting in relation to the rest of this chapter that the ones being patronized by their fellow man, even though they are being punished and cast into prison etc are able to conduct themselves patiently and use the moment as an opportunity for a testimony.
The not losing a single hair indicates to me the peace that comes with the relation with the absolute; the world can whirl around you and sometimes is not "fair" and yet you stand on a solid, everlasting, unseen to mortal eyes foundation which gives you peace in the midst of a storm, and thus you do not lose your hair from stress.
But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. 13And it shall turn to you for a testimony. 14Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: 15For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. 16And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. 17And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. 18But there shall not an hair of your head perish. 19In your patience possess ye your souls.
Once again thanks for posting the other scripture; and I apologize to the readers for my somewhat offensive thought regarding the matter of baldness and conduct.
