    1 CORINTHIANS 11:3 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 --- 1 TIMOTHY 4:7 BUT REFUSE PROFANE AND OLD WIVES FABLES AND EXERCISE THYSELF RATHER UNTO GODLINESS

    A woman's hair is her glory, we DO know why. 1Cor.11:15 "it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering." The hair should cover her head,which is about to the jawline for the head to be covered, bangs would not be involved. No where does it say it is a sin to cut a woman's hair. Scripture does not tell why it affects angels. V.10
  • Lu2677
    Julius, Your answer for "uncovered" is verse 15.(And if a woman does not have hair that is long enough to cover her head she should cover it with something else,when she prays because of angels in verse 10) "Cover" a man should not have hair long enough to cover his head, it dishonors his head, verse 4.

    Julius - v. 4 - this was the Corinthian church, which was fairly new at this time. They had come out of EXTREME idolatry, which included long uncut hair on men - which God (not man) considered a 'covering'. The rulers (Emperors, kings,) of that day wore their hair cut short. And the Roman soldiers followed suit. Example: museum busts of aforementioned. Now remember - this is God's standard. cont.
