Yet, as believers in the Lord, women couldn't exist without men and men couldn't exist without women.
As a woman came into existence from a man, so men come into existence by women, but everything comes from God.
Judge your own situation. Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
Doesn't nature itself teach you that it is disgraceful for a man to have long hair?
Doesn't it teach you that it is a woman's pride to wear her hair long? Her hair is given to her in place of a covering.
If anyone wants to argue about this [they can't, because] we don't have any custom like this--nor do any of the churches of God.
I have no praise for you as I instruct you in the following matter: When you gather, it results in more harm than good.
In the first place, I hear that when you gather as a church you split up into opposing groups. I believe some of what I hear.
Factions have to exist in order to make it clear who the genuine believers among you are.
When you gather in the same place, you can't possibly be eating the Lord's Supper.
Each of you eats his own supper [without waiting for each other]. So one person goes hungry and another gets drunk.
