      Hi Simon,

      I agree with you that 1 Cor. 11 teaches all of what you say, at least. What
      causes men like Calvin, Chrysostom, Augustine, Tertullian et al, to think
      that more is meant, is the reference to nature in v. 14, as well as, the
      very essence (what is taught by God in its length) of the long hair itself.
      Notice that no reference is made to a man's hair (when it is long) as a
      thing of "glory," such as is the case for the woman. It cannot be, because
      it is a covering by nature, only for woman.

      I think this subject generates heat by nature, in that it has to do with
      light; which I believe is a good thing.

      In Christ,

      Gary
