      Yes, very helpful, thank you, Edgar. I must say I like the idea of your old pastor, to wear one but on the other hand to be different to the papists.

        Well its better than wearing it through ones nose!! ;-)

        But, I don't see the childish connection.  Making a stand in even the smaller things can be a noble thing to do. (IMHO)  And it IS being different to the world which we are called to do.

        It may help with the papists but it will put one right into the Eastern
        Orthodox camp :-) Not sure which one is worse :-)

        But seriously, I find the idea of wearing a ring on a right hand just so
        one can be different from the papists is childish.

          I agree with Cheryl. I believe in our society, a ring means marriage. That you are taken, not available. Back off! It is a symbol of love for a spouse. In

              This subject is an interesting diversion. Luke 15:22 comes to mind, which states "But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet."
               
              At least here in this parable, it appears that the use of the ring was partially expressive of the favor and affection of the father for his son. It is difficult for me to see from the scriptures a sweeping prohibition of all wearing of rings that some have suggested.
