1 Corinthians 11

I've started to wear a head covering. I was admiring the tichels (scarves) the Jewish ladies wear. I decided to try one of their styles. I love it! 馃槉

The Lord has given woman long hair as a covering.. 馃槉

(1 Corinthians 11:15) "But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering."

The word of God is good.. 馃憤

@Adstar You have no idea the implications in the Greek. You are not a Bible scholar and have no understanding of all the implications of what that passage says. It is a very deep chapter and great fun to explore. Care to join me as we go through it?

@Adstar And you are the one who is trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. There is a lot of very deep meanings in this passage and I mentioned only one. My comment was simply stating facts. As a man my hair is not something I take pride in. It is simply something that grows on my head. My wife does not share that feeling at all. She takes great pride in it and has been known to color it and curl it and put decorations into it. 1 Corinthians 11 backs up what I just said. That completely aside there is a lot more involved. It goes back to the ancient liturgy of the Apostolic church where in the service men represented God and women represented mankind. God has no authority over Him and thus the man does not put a sign of authority over his head. Woman representing mankind has an authority over her and wears a sign of authority on her head. It is a very deep passage and it would seem you are not interested in delving into it that is up to you. As for arrogance. Take the plank out of your own eye before you try to take the spec out of your brother's eye.
Well, I think they're beautiful. I love them, but I do not think a woman should be forced to wear one.

Mandatory headcovers for women is a topic that has been debated throughout the history of Judaism. Some rabbis believe hair covering is an absolute obligation originating from Moses at Sinai, while others say it is a standard of modesty defined by the Jewish community. The Yiddish word tichel or Hebrew word mitpachat means head scarf. Today, many married Orthodox Jewish women still wear tichels. Some also wear a wig, a practice dating back to 17th Century France. Today, the decision to cover one鈥檚 hair is based on a combination of law and custom, personal choice, and community identification. Like regular head scarves, tichel headcovers are available in styles to suit all occasions.I think some in churches still cover their head out of respect and humbleness to the Lord in His House of Prayer.
