Re: Long hair on a man

As an analogy, your mother probably taught you certain table manners as you were growing up - for instance, to eat in a certain way with a knife and fork. The use of a knife and fork is according to custom, in accordance with your culture. It has become natural for you to eat that way. But other cul...

Re: Long hair on a man

But why would it be a shame for a man to have long hair? How does nature teach us that? I have quoted further back here the following... How did nature teach that long hair dishonored a man and gave women a covering? Nature has not endowed women with more hair than men. In fact, if nature takes its...

Re: Long hair on a man

Hmm, just as I thought... wearing your hair short to "play it safe" is not the reason at all. :dancing:

Re: Long hair on a man

FFC, I think you have missed my point. :shakehead: You said that you wear your hair short to be on the safe side... ...{clip}...Judah, I'm just gonna play it safe and keep my hair short. ...but unless you are getting about in first century gear, then it is only your hair and not your clothes that yo...

Re: Long hair on a man

Going back to that article I originally linked to, I think that the following bit sums up the situation quite well... Significance of This Text for Today's World The significance of this text for the twentieth century must be examined briefly. Am I suggesting that women return to wearing coverings o...

Re: Long hair on a man

Well, let me see... he's pretty resourceful, usually. Not bad on the wit. He might even manage an apologist's equivalent of a hole-in-one, but if he muffs it, I'd suggest as many chances as there are little hairs on those possibly bare legs of his. What do you say? Of course, I don't know how many t...

Re: Long hair on a man

Now Jen, we must give the lad a chance.
Who knows... maybe he does wear his First Century gear when riding his bicycle to work.
That would be quite a spectacle, don't you think? :shock:

FFC, you're missing from roll call again... :eugeek:

Yep, it probably is fairly simple if we stop complicating things. 8)

Re: Long hair on a man

FFC, you know jolly well that I don't have "authority" over you in the context that Paul was speaking of, that is, in the visible church. :P Indeed, I am your servant, just as you are mine. I will serve you by dumping your naughty posts in the garbage forum :pound: and you will serve me by paying at...

Re: non-believers and believers

Christians have been given "the Great Commission" which is to go out and tell others about Christ, God's plan for our redemption. However, we are not to spread the Word aggressively, but in love for others, so that they may also come to know the Good News and accept Christ as their saviour. The outc...

Re: Long hair on a man

Getting back to the original question... Anyone who is really serious about understanding this issue of gender and hair, the long and short of it, can find a most worthy answer right hair/here as long as they are not short of reading time. :D FFC, you have homework to do! :egeek: Jen, you too.

Re: Is there any thing in the Bible that suggests that a woman..

Kateliz, now you're getting the hang of it! What you are saying makes good Biblical sense to me. A mature Christian friend of mine, one who knows his Bible extremely well, has written to my website here the following comment: Concerning women teaching men, I am convinced that Paul's instruction caut...
