    Barbara; but if anyone seems to be contentious about it; "We have no such tradition!" I think that there are many things we COULD do as signs and for teaching in the statutes that Moses gave to the children of Israel; as long as we can confirm them by the manner of life that shows the grace of God in the Gospel of Christ REALLY true and fulfilled, an evidence of the Presence of His Spirit in us.

    The Bible says that it is a sham for a woman to pray uncovered and it is a shame for a man to pray covered and their hair is the covering that God has given them. Therefore if people say it is ok for a woman to pray uncovered then it would be ok for the man to pray covered. It is a shame, and we are pleasing ourselves when we go against what God has said, who is the one we will stand before.

    covering of hair by women, the bible did not out rightly condemned it as sin, in verse 13, the bible tells us to judge in ourselves whether it is comely for that a woman should pray unto God uncovered. It is left for us to judge it. If it was a sin, the bible would have condemned it straight ahead.
