 Re:

Narrow path,

Since you were referencing Keith Daniel, let's just post that entire section of scripture and lay this to rest, just like Paul did.


1 Corinthians 11
King James Version
11 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.

3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.

5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.

9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.

11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.

12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.

13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?

14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.

18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.

19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

 Re: Men with long hair and women with short hair in church

Quote: Even small commandmends in the bible are there for us to keep.

Romans:7 5-6 For when we lived according to the flesh, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in our bodies, bearing fruit for death. But now, having died to what bound us, we have been released from the law, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.

Serve in the new way of the Spirit.

 Re: Men with long hair and women with short hair in church

Quote:

The scripture I am referring to is found in 1 Cor 11
14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.



You are taking a portion of the scripture out of context to mean something. If women should not cut their hair then Paul contradicts himself by saying "women should cut their hair if they are unwilling to cover her head!"

I cor 11:6- If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off. And if it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head.


In verses 14 and 15, Paul is talking about how nature itself tells that men should not have long hair while women should have a long hair. In most cultures especially Eastern, long hair is an identity for women and short hair for men. Paul is stating this obvious facts and not giving a command here.

The Point Paul is trying to make here is, Long hair is an identity for women, and it is their glory (beauty) which belongs to man. Man's glory should be covered in the Church. Hence women should cover her identity of beauty (long hair) in the CHurch. Comparing it with verse 6, if women is unwilling to cover her beautiful hair then let her also cut it short!

So if we read 1 Cor 11 in context, then women with shorter hair but unwilling to cover their heads are obeying the scripture accurately!

 Re:

What I find strange or even hypocritical is that before the 1960s, all Christians were used to seeing images of Jesus with long hair and nobody flinched one bit. Then with the hippies in the 60s who were fairly rebellious and anti-establishment and pro-drug and who grew long hair, suddenly long hair (on a guy) becomes super sinful. And none of those guys with long hair were trying to convince people they were females. I give all kind of love to Chuck Smith and his wife for having compassion on the hippies and leading thousands to Christ.
