    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.

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.
