Default more thoughts!

Hi all!

Having read your links and I must say that they are interesting and I do appreciate your help, do you think that it is then a wrong thing to do for a man to cover his head when praying or prophesying?

I canít accept the interpretation of the womanís covering within this context being her hair, because when you apply that rule of interpretation to the context then it makes it sound like a man is dishonouring his head if he is not bald when he prays!

I agree that long hair is a covering but I donít think that this is what is being meant here, as it seems as though Paul is referring to the natural order of things (i.e. masculine feminine appearances) to get them to see his point. Believe me when I say that I am not being sexist here in any way or trying impose rules upon women but I honestly seek to know what this means (after all, I donít want to dishonour my head if I am praying with my hair on do I?)

Any other thoughts?

God bless
