Most of the time, I feel like the Bible is a very serious thing – a great educational tool, actually.
But then I read something like 1 Corinthians 5-7…
And I start to wonder, where do you guys draw the line? There’s so many rules in the Bible… and you make it so you believe you can ignore those in the Old Testament, because they are dietary and not divine.
Umm… OK. So what about the New Testament?
Basically, Paul doesn’t care for the dietary rules/laws, so he abolishes them more or less, saying that Christ Jesus has freed us from these “shackles”. But Paul also believes that women should cover their heads during worship. And if she doesn’t cover her head, then Paul believes she should shave her head… which would be a shameful thing.
I dunno about you guys, but I find Paul to very OPINIONATED. Even tho he understands that Christ Jesus rewrote all the laws for us, he still wants to believe that men should have short hair, women should have long hair [and wear a hat!]. Did Jesus die on the Cross for my right, as a man, to have long hair? … or, as a woman, to NOT wear a hat to worship?
I knew of one elderly woman who went to church with a hat. One woman. That was it!
So I repeat… how could you husbands allow your wife to worship without a hat??? HOW DARE YOU!!
