Ensign, “Personal Priesthood Responsibility”, November 2003, pg 44; “To bear the priesthood means you have a personal responsibility to magnify your calling. Let each opportunity to serve help to develop your power in the priesthood. In your personal grooming, follow the example of the living prophets. Doing so gives silent expression that you truly comprehend the importance of “the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God.” –

Romans 12:2; “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Matthew 10:28; “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Having good personal hygiene is a good thing for you personally and for those around you – ha! But where in the Bible does it say that you must have the same haircut style that the prophet of today has?
The prophets of today are fitting in with the demands of society; short hair, clean shaven, etc. If the next prophet thinks he should wear a long hair and a long beard what would you do? What if you don’t like your hair long or if you don’t like beards; are you enslaved to that as well?
