I hope you find this little enclave on the internet a place of fun and
encouragement! As for glorifying God with your look, I would say that
it is not so much the look that would be glorifying, but your
actions! You probably know this anyway.
While there is really no connection between having a shaved head and
being a Godly man, I created this site as some of the other shaved
headed men sites focus on unwholesome subject matters. So I felt that
there should be a relatively family safe site for us who like the
shaved head look but could do without sensuality.
Thanks for the welcome brothers! Yes, Marsh, it's nice to have a
clean spot to visit on the webb. I do not know a lot about CS Lewis's
baldness...just saw his name on a list of celebrity bald men. From
the pictures I remember seeing of him, he appeared to be naturally
To the brother about Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost For His Highest";
like your find ten years ago, you have just found another jewel of
life. You will be blessed many times over as you read through it.
Congrats on the to year anniversary!
Blessings to all you brothers on the 4th. Let's keep the prayers
going for our Pres and troops.
Since our group is international in scope, I would like to wish our
Christian Chromedomes from the land of the Maple Leaf flag a happy
Canada Day! Also happy Independence Day to all of our Yankee
Chromedomes! May we all pray for wisdom for the leaders and troops
(in combat and not in combat) in our various countries. Pray for them
whether or not you agree with their decisions. Pray the freedom
particularly in the US and Canada will continue to preach the Gospel
without compromise! Keep those domes shining for Jesus!

Hi there, peoples of my e-mail list. I thought I would pass on a little Brother
Love's Traveling Salvation Show info (how's that for poetic).
The big news, of course is Goodstock. Goodstock VIII will be on July 23 starting
at noon. We will have new bands and some returning favorites (Jericho and
Seventh Time Down for two). Brother Love will play around 5:00 PM. As always,
admission is free as are food, drinks, and assorted other goodies. Fliers and
e-mails have been going out to local churches, but if you have not received any,
or if your church or youth group want to participate in a booth, call Pam
Rouster at 344-0246 or give me call. You can check out more details at
www.brotherlovetss.com . Hope to see you there.
As some of you know, over the last two years we have had lead guitar problems
due to our lead guitarist going to school, working out of town, changing
careers, raising a family, and solving all the world's problems. This year he
finally called it quits which really put us in a bind. Not strangely enough, God
took care of everyone's problems. A woman looking for Goodstock info saw our
plea for a guitar player and took it to great guy who had started seriously
praying for a band the night before. We connected and now Randy Morgan is our
new lead guitarist. In addition to being a dynamite picker, Randy has a great
story to tell. Amazing how these things work.
Of course, over the past two years we have turned down several gigs because we
could not produce a complete band. Well, now we can, so if your church, school,
or any group is in need of some good old rock and roll for your soul, give a
call. Our fee hasn't changed (free as free can be). The music is still fun and
the spirit is still there. Again, info can be checked out at the web-site, but
ignore the picture. It is far from current. We have lost two, and gained one,
plus Teresa is cuter than ever.
Thanks for your time. I hope to see you at Goodstock or your own festival or

Welcome to the group. Although I haven't been very active lately,
going to try and do better.
I too began shaving my head a couple of years, due to so much of it
falling out on it's own,and I loved it from the first day. I suspect
that I will remain bald from now own.
Also, would like to say, "Welcome Home Brother"
When was the last time someone gleamed at you and said, "You made my
day!"? Do you remember what you did that got that response?
Perhaps you looked up and smiled sincerely as a co-worker walked by
your desk, telling her, "I'm so glad you're here. I know you'll be a
big help with this job."
No? Did you take dinner to a neighbor the evening he returned home
from the hospital... and stayed to wash the dishes?
You may have encountered a troubled acquaintance and offered your
phone number and a listening ear... "day or night".
Whatever the sitation, it is important to realize that we never know
when we could be making a life-alternating impact with a small
kindness or extra consideration.
God may be using us for His particular purpose. Romans 8:28
explains, "We know that in everything God works for good and with
those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose."
It is that time of year again. Goodstock, the Christian rock festival
that our band sponsors is this Saturday in Erlanger, KY. As ususal,
everything is free from admission to food to the paint ball shooting
gallery. If you are in the Cincinnati area try to attend. It is a good
time. If you can come or not, I do covet your prayers. Pray that Satan
will be bound, that the people God wants to send will be there, that
those of us who perform or run things will get out of the way and let
God work, and of course pray for good weather. At this point the
weather forecast is hot, but not humid. That is decent. Thanks for the
prayers. Feel free to check out band and festival info at
So how did the concert go?
Excellent. I have just been too busy since Goodstock to say thanks for the
prayers. So, thanks. The weather leading up to it was horrid. Much heat &
humidity. We then lost our refrigerated truck. I was also worried about the
crowd. So those were my Friday prayers. Friday afternoon a refrigerated
truck appeared from nowhere. It was not from anybody we knew. Our rhythm
guitarist saw it in a lot and before you know it we had a truck for free.
Saturday was hot, but with a breeze and a lack of humidity. After the
concert the breeze died and the humidity returned. The crowd was huge and
the bands were great. It was truly a blessed event. We even had press
coverage like we have never had. Now the local paper wants to do a feature
on the band. God must have something in mind. Thanks for asking; and again,
thanks for the prayers.
On a less hairy subject, I found these head wipes by "Bald Guyz" at my local
Kroger. They are to remove the excess oils in the afternoons. They have
green tea extract and other things. Not only do they feel good, but they
smell great. My wife and other women have loved the smell. I use one in my
car and place the used wipe by the AC vent to keep the car fresh. They
aren't cheap, but I do like the feel.

> Hi. I just joined this group. I've been where you are. You
can be free from lust. The Lord and your christian brothers will
help you. In my case I used lust to comfort the pain of a wounded
heart, emotional pain from my past that I couldn't face. The Lord
went with me back to those wounded places, helped me face them and
forgive the people involved. He's healing me beyond what I thought
possible and he can do the same for you. I knew I needed help, so I
swallowed my pride and went for christian counseling. Don't be
afraid to see a counselor.
There are some books that really helped me. They are all

I wouldn't try to separate yourself from your sexuality. I
believe that would be impossible for anyone. We are one with our
sexuality, we are whole. God made us male or female. I think what
you mean is that you need to take the focus of your desire off the
lustful object and redirect it toward what it was created for. As a
human you're created to desire closeness with God and with other
people. Your desire and the energy behind it is GOOD. God created
it. You won't be able to kill the desire, but you can discover what
needs are driving the desire. Then you brings those needs to the
Lord and he meets them. He satisfies your soul and you then have no
use for the lustful object.
I plead with you not to be disgusted with the person you are.
You are not disgusting. That's a lie from the devil. God created
you in his image. He loves you and has a plan for you and he's
gonna heal you. We all do disgusting things, then we ask God to
forgive us, and he does! Brother I appreciate your frankness. I
will pray for you, Jack.
> Celebrate Yahoo!'s 10th Birthday!
> Yahoo! Netrospective: 100 Moments of the Web
I'm so excited about finding this web site I could probably
stay up all night posting everything I'd like to discuss. I've
wanted some feedback from christian brothers on this issue for over
a year. So, I won't try to cover it all in one post, but will start
with an intro.
I'm 42, have been happily married for 17 years and have three
children. I love the outdoors, playing piano and hockey. I have a
full head of hair, and have been shaving it off for over a year.
It's always appealed to me at a deep level. I have tried to figure
out why, but cannot. Since I was young I saw myself as a bald guy
with big muscles. I lift weights with a pure conscience, but for
some reason I was very ashamed of the desire to shave my head. I
saw it as wrong, impure, unnatural. And so after I became a
christian I was sure a shaved head would not please the Lord. I
fought it for years, considering it a lustful desire. I prayed and
gave it to the Lord a hundred times. But it wouldn't go away, it
remained this gut-level desire that was screaming to express itself.
So I gave into it, viewing it as a "phase" I had to go through, that
the Lord was using it to teach me something.
My conclusion is this: Shaving your head is not necessarily a
sin, it all depends on your attitude. If you must shave your head,
do it for the Lord! Be a Nazirite and devote your shaved hair to
Him. After shaving I discovered it was definitely the look that I
was seeking and am comfortable with it now. My wife didn't like it
at first, but now seems to be accepting it now. My kids either like
it, or they don't care. I'm very happy bald. Maybe this is the way
God wants me to be. Well guys, (no offense gals, but I'm looking
for the guy's point of view here) tell me what you think. It's
great to be here and to share this. God bless you all!
I'm Joseph ("Grape"), one of the moderators here. Glad to have you
join us here at Christian Chromedomes. You'll have a wide variety of
people... guys where were starting to thin and decided to do away with
the rest, guys with alopecia (like me), and likely a few others like
you who WOULD have full head of hair (I should create a "poll" on this
Where do you hail from? What kind of church do you go to?
Again, welcome... and blessings,
Thought you'd all find this entertaining.

I finally took the "plunge" and shaved off what little hair I had left
on my dome this past Tuesday. On searching the net for sites related to
bald men I found this one. I must say that I love the fact that I can
fully express not only my love and faith for my Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ, but also the fact that I am bald, proud of it, and would under
no circumstances ever go back to using my comb again.
I understand that some men go bald not by their own choice and for them
I do offer my prayers and Christian love that they are able to accept
their fate and be able to accept themselves and love themselves the way
I attend a moderately large church which is affiliated with the Church
of God, Anderson, Ind.
Thank you for moderating and continuing this group. God Bless You in
all of your future endeavors.
A side note to all of this, I can't wait to go to church this weekend
and see the reations from my fellow congregation mates on my new look.
Hey, it is great to have you as part of the group. When you can,
please post a picture so we can see what you look like!
By the way, I am Marshall, the founder of this humble group!

While I am at it, I was wondering if you would all be interested in a
chat at some point. I know I have never done this. But when I hook
my home computer back up, I would like to do this at some time!
Anyway, keep shining for the Lord!

Hey, Welcome aboard. (Not you, Marshall. I know
you're not new.) But while I have your attention,
Marshall, I've never chatted on yahoo before. But
I'd be willing to give it a try. I have MSN messenger
as well. You can generally find me online under
I'll give you a similar introduction as Marshall. I
live in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. (The city
immediately west of Toronto.) Home of airplane
crashes in which nobody dies. Which is mildly crappy
considering I'm an undertaker that works 15 minutes
from that runway. Lived most of my life in Toronto.
Spent a few years in Ottawa where I met this club's
other moderator, Grape.
Raised in a Christian home, so it's hard to pick a
date when I can say I actually STARTED following
Christ. Guess it's been a lifelong process. Grew up
in a baptist church, hold membership in what's called
Associated Gospel, attending a Missionary Alliance
church. (I moved recently and haven't really settled
on a new home church.) I guess my theology would be
most in line with what Americans would call Reformed
Baptist. But enough Chruchianity...
Been going bald naturally since I was in my early-mid
20s. (Turned twenty-ten this past Sunday.) Actually
had enough thinning and decided to go all the way in
2003. The greatest benefit to being bald is that you
can take a nap and wake up looking pretty much as good
(or bad, in my case) as you did when you lay down.
There are before and after pictures of me in this
club's photos section. Check em out.
Let us know how it went at church. I remember I
showed up at church in a bandanna my first bald
Sunday. And enough was showing that everyone had an
idea what had happened. But they all loved it when I
Advice, make sure you protect your dome from intense
sunlight. I've never been subject to a sunburn, but
I've heard they're pretty nasty up there. This was
the hottest summer on record, here, and I'm pretty
lucky I made it out unscathed.

Hi Ed. Welcome aboard!
Wow. You really struggled with the decision to go
topless. What exactly held you back? I mean, why did
you consider it a lustful desire? Is there a verse
that made you think twice or something?

August 30, 2005
The Gospel via Helping Hands
by John Fischer
It keeps coming up. Every time Iím around someone who is uniquely prophetic in
their gifts, or every time I read a forward-thinking book or article I find
someone saying that the future of evangelism in the world is going to ride on
the wings of service. The gospel is going to go forth via helping hands. Itís as
we reach out to meet the needs of people that we will find opportunity to tell
the simple story of Jesus and His love.
The Jesus movement of thirty-five years ago was all about Jesus and saving
peopleís souls. It was about filling up the emptiness inside left by drugs,
sexual experimentation, failed social utopia, and a great sense of
disillusionment and helplessness. In the years since, Christians have become
preoccupied with politics and power Ė as if we could usher in the Kingdom of God
through the halls of Washington or hold back the forces of evil at the polls.
All this came with lots of talk and attention in the media Ė attention that has
come at a price in regards to the reputation of Christians, and by way of
association, the gospel.
This is why I believe prophetic voices are urging Christians to stop talking and
start serving humanity. Rick Warren has already mapped out a five year
P.E.A.C.E. plan for the global church over the next twenty years. Is it any
wonder that its backbone is service involving among other things, eradicating
poverty and illiteracy, healing the sick, and halting the development of
preventable diseases? All of these are within our human powers to perform by
merely marshalling the worldwide church to answer the call. We can do the work;
God can fill our hearts and our hands with His love. Helping hands bring the
love of Jesus in concrete ways. People are tired of talk. They distrust words.
But unsolicited acts of kindness and love cannot be explained away or denied.
What this means for us in our daily lives is that we need to be looking for the
same opportunities to serve in our local neighborhoods and communities. We do
not need a worldwide network to reach out to those around us. We just need to be
awake and looking for a chance to meet a need. Thatís the spontaneous part. For
others it may mean taking up a position on a committee or a service organization
Ė something that will put us in the daily line of service. God will show you;
just be awake. Itís the new wave: the gospel via helping hands. Itís more than
service; itís the love of Jesus lived out in real ways. Itís what the world

As all of you know, the Gulf Coast states are in a world of hurt. I
just want to encourage all of you to please pray for all those
affected. Please pray for the many Christian relief agencies that are
working down there to provide aid. Pray for them to reach as many
people as possible and to also be effective witnesses for Christ.
Please also pray that a revival will start from this tragedy. Also
consider sending support to the various agencies working there. Here
are several organisations I can recommend:
Mercy Corps www.mercycorps.org
World Relief www.worldrelief.org
World Vision www.worldvision.org
World Concern www.worldconcern.org
Northwest Medical Teams www.nwmedicalteams.org
Operation Blessing www.ob.org
Yours in Christ,

Hello again to everybody. I had trouble signing on so I
reregistered under a different ID. I was formerly graczaedward, but
now am bbaallddeagle.
I agree that actions and service speak more powerfully than
words. It was other people's Christian kindness that won me over to
the Lord. However we need to deliver the message of the gospel
together with service. Jesus did both.
Also, I finally can reply to the message (occuring about four
messages before this one)that welcomed me and asked why I struggled
so much with the decision to go smooth on top. It's a long story,
but now I'm completely comfortable with having a shaved head. My
conclusion is that God created me with the preference for a bald
head, and that I can express this part of me and celebrate it
without shame. But, as in everything, we need to keep our eyes on
Jesus and do things with the right attitude, whether it's shaving
our heads or drinking orange juice. Thanks for the warm welcome!
Speaking of service, I'm going to the Ukraine for two weeks
in October to provide dental care and visit our "sister church". So
please pray for a sucessful and effective trip. Thanks guys!
Hey there. It has been awfully quiet, so apparently we all need
something to do and I have just the thing.
Our local women's walk to Emamus is this weekend. It starts Thursday
night at 7:00 and ends Sunday about the same time. They need to be
totally enclosed in prayer, so lets pray for them. That should keep us
Welcome to heapiton and shavedbald4life! Feel free to share your experiences
about shaving your noggin and tips about shaving or people's reactions positive
or negative about it.
However this is more than a place to celebrate the bare noggin. More
importantly, it is a place for clean Christian fellowship. So feel free to
share about Christ, or share prayer requests etc.
Also, please add your photo to our albums.
PS I have to ask this question to "shavedbald4life", are you Ted from Hoquiam,
WA? The reason I am asking this is because your age is 44 and I had just
invited him to be a part of this group. If you are not him, we are still glad
to have you on board!

It has been awhile since we talked about things realated to head
shaving. Anyway, last night I was in Rite Aid and bought a product put
out by the fine folks at HeadBlade. It is called HeadLube. I bought
the HeadLube Glossy. I kind of like it. It provides a nice shine.
So I am wondering if any of you have bought this product or what kind
of products enhance your head shaving experience?
