Discussion for 1 Corinthians 11

  • Irene123
    Deut. 6:4 - just as an aside to all this trinity/oneness stuff - is there anywhere in the KJV Bible where LORDS, (plural) is used of God?
  • Irene123
    Son of God; Son of man; but there is not ONE sentence that says - God the son. God (spirit) wasn't the 'son'; the FLESH BODY was the son; the spirit (God) indwelt the body fully. When Jesus spoke of the son of man , He was speaking of his flesh body; when He spoke of the son of God, He spoke of the spirit in the body.
  • Irene123
    Every word of the O.T. and N.T. of the KJV not 'new' kjv come from the 'mouth' of Jesus God was MANIFEST in the flesh God's name is - JESUS. ONE God His name is Jesus.
  • Irene123
    V. 15 - Long hair is - UNCUT hair - no 'trimmed' split ends, no 'bangs'. "A woman ought to have POWER on her head because of the angels". The power is from God, to hear our prayers, to use us for His Glory; there is no higher calling. But long hair on a sinner woman that hasn't followed Acts 2:38 has no benefit; Cleopatra had long hair. Jezebel had long hair, Jn. 9:31.

    9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
