Cutting your hair as a christian woman


This is a post for christian women. I've been following a lot of threads where christians are sharing their beliefs and get caught under fire. Non-believers try to justify sin by pointing out the (unreasonable) commands in the bible; eating pork, wearing mixed fibers, sex on your period etc. Sometimes, I see the believers crumpling under the pressure and then say things like "I never said we we were perfect," or " we do still sin". These responses don't make sense to the non-believer. So I've done a lot of studying, I believe it's called apologetics and I'll just hit on one of these things for now.

Christian women cutting their hair. 1 Corinthians 11:1-16. It's important to know that the bible was written in a historical context. During this time, roman women were worshipping the god Dyonisis. The myth of this God was that he was born male and lived as a female and was homosexual. The women would worship him by ripping the limbs from live animals and drink the blood. They also shaved their heads in protest against male authority and their practices were detestable. In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul is talking about man being the head of woman, Christ being the head of man, and God being the head of Christ. Basically saying that women should have their head covered in an equal and opposite protest against the Dyonisis worshippers. A woman who did not shave her head and wore a head covering made a statement that she had accepted her place as a woman covered by Christ.

There is a reason for every one of these laws, we just have to seek out the answer. It's important that we do, so that we can help others with genuine questions to understand. This post was mainly for my fellow sisters in Christ. If you come to argue, please refer to 2 Timothy 2:23-26.
