  • Diana Cato for verse 15
    That is the problem now of days, we want to interpert the bible for todays age, but Gods word never change, just maybe if we do what we suppose to do which is his well and not our own fashionable well, in first corinthinans 11:15. we can get past our on understanding and seek the Holy Spirit for clear understanding. The word of God is clear. There is alway a reason behind God word, let just obey it, my sisters and brothers!
  • In Hebrew had means prime, i.e Prime Minister is above minister. Rosh Memchala - means HEad of the Government - Prime Minister. It also means beginning. Like Rosh Hashana is the beginning of Year.
  • Reshma Armogan
    We should be followers of chist like Paul was, when we are having communion we should search our self and make it right with the people we had wronhed then ask the lord for forgiveness before we take part. If we don 't then we are doing it in vain. It is considered unworthy in the eyes of god.
  • I don 't think it wrong biblicaly for man to have long hair,indeed I got a very long hair
  • Edwinbrooker
    About holy communion
  • First, what does one consider long hair. My hair does not hang down my back so am I to cover my hear in shame. No. Does that make The Most High GOD not love me. Please pray if any man or woman believe that 1Cor 11:14,15 states otherwise. Pray and ask for true meaning of all things...SHALAM
