Here is another Bible scripture that often has been misquoted and twisted in order to tell Christian men that God doesn’t want them to have long hair; “Isn’t it obvious that it’s disgraceful for a man to have long hair? And isn’t long hair a woman’s pride and joy? For it has been given to her as a covering. But if anyone wants to argue about this, I simply say that we have no other custom than this, and neither do God’s other churches.” 1. Corinthians 11:14-16 NLT  To fully understand this scripture, we need to understand what the situation was like at this time in Corinth. The city of Corinth was known for its immorality and perversity, and the men that were sexually perverted had long hair. The apostle Paul who wrote this letter, didn’t want the men in the church to be mistaken for those perverted ones. This was not God’s commandment to all people throughout all times, but Paul’s special advice to the people in Corinth at that time! The whores in Corinth, for instance, had short hair or shaved heads, and Paul didn’t want the women in church to be mistaken for whores, which is why he told the females in the church not to cut their hair off. Again, this was not God’s commandment to all Christians throughout all times! In Numbers 6:5 NLT it says about the Nazirites, who devoted themselves to God, that; “they must never cut their hair throughout the time of their vow, for they are holy and set apart to the Lord,” Three well-known Nazirites were Samson (See Judges 13:5), Samuel the prophet (See 1. Samuel 1:11) and John the Baptist. (See Luke 1:15)
