The preacher from my home church answered my question about 1 Corinthians 11:5-6 and in case any of you guys were wondering, I will post the answer.
To answer your question about I.Cor.11:5,6 you must first understand the backgound of the Corinth church and the happenings in the city of Corinth. The church Paul is writing to has had many hardships in staying seperated from sin. They have experienced incest and harlotry. In chapter 11, Paul instructs them on Christian order. One sign of prostitution at the time in Corinth was women with short hair (or as Paul says in the Greek, uncovered). It was dishonorable for a woman of God to shave or cut her hair short because she could be mistaken for a prositute. Some women who had been prostitutes but then were baptized used a veil to cover their once shaven heads, honoring God by being covered. Look at verse 15, it says plainly that long hair is a glory to her and is her covering. Don't worry, hair styles change and society gives its meaning to things generation after generation. The important lesson we must learn as did the first century church is to be careful how we live and watch the example we set for others because society is watching our every move.
Hope this helps.
