    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.

    Romans 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. I will always feed my enemies with God's WORD. Jesus never gave up on sinners.

    Its amazing that people don't understand the writings of Apostle Paul, even Apostle Peter had a hard time understanding Paul. Peter had to eat his pride and admit that Paul was chosen from Jesus and that we have to believe and follow his epistles or destruction may come to us. Paul in the book of Corinthians is our Apostle for this period of time today. For by Grace are we saved, not by works.

    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. It's the same with Apostle Paul. Jesus taught Paul mysteries and revelations. Therefore Jesus wants us to follow Paul because Paul is following Jesus. Simple
