1 Corinthians 11:14

1 Corinthians 11:14 April 12, 2013

For those who may not know the original version, 1 Corinthians 11:14-15a reads: “Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory?”

All jokes aside, it is an important text for illustrating that what Paul meant by “nature” and “natural” isn’t what we mean by those terms. If there is one thing that isn’t natural in the modern sense of the word, it is cutting one’s hair to keep it artificially short!
