You might have noticed how the world we live in has become very ungodlgy.
Everywhere you look there´s misery, violence, unrighteusness and perversion. Living in the last days, as the Scriptures say that we are, reminds us about what Isaiah says that “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil…” (Isaiah 5:20, KJV)
Isn´t that how it is today? Sin is considered the norm. On TV there are commercials that explicitly encourage married people to commit adultery in secret, at the universities transgender bathrooms are being installed for the deviant perverts that don´t “identify” as either male or female, men are wearing women clothing and women are wearing men´s clothing. The list of insanity could go on.
The Bible flay out says that “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.” (Deu 22:5)
Most basic clothing that men wear are clothing that women also may wear. A sweatshirt, a t-shirt, socks and such items comes to mind. Most female clothing however are items that a man would never wear. For example a skirt, a dress, a bra or pantyhose. It becomes clear that the only clothing that are specifically considered men´s clothing, as the verse says “…that which pertaineth unto a man…” are pants. Clearly the Scripture is saying that pants are man´s clothing, and is not to be worn by women.
Furthermore, the fashion that men are suppose to have long hair is an abomination before The Lord God. When Paul writes the thessalonians he gives clear instructions on how they are to have their church services. Among other things, he clearifies that a woman should have her head covered, something that many christians have interpreted as wearing a vail or something else to cover her hair, even though the Bible literally says “…her hair is given her for a covering.” (1 Cor 11:15 KJV)
God´s commandment is that women are to have long hair, not that they are to cover their hair with a vail or a hat.
But Paul also speaks to the men (and bare in mind that this was in a greek culture where a lot of sodomy and sissieness was usual in society) and he says “Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?” (1 Cor 11:14)
Paul is basically saying, “Hey guys, don´t you get how embarrassing it is for grown men to look like little girls with long hair?”
That´s exactly how it is in this day and age. Boys and men dressing like sodomites, with a little sissified knot on their head. It is a shame!
When Job complained before God, God answered him and said “Gird up now thy loins like a man…” (Job 38:3)
God had gotten tired of Job whining and thought that he should man up!
What do you think that God thinks of these sissie christians with long hair and skinny jeans? Do you think it is what God intended when he created mankind is His image? God thinks that it is a shame!
When God tells you to cut your hair, you answer – Yes sir!
Here´s a couple of sermons on how to be a biblical man.

Hur viktigt tror du att det är att läsa vissa bibelord i dess kontext? Tänkte på ordet till Job och även Paulus ord om kvinnans hår skall täckas.
Gud välsigne dig!
Det beror på vad gör kontext, kontext till skriften? Alltid. Hela det kapitel som talar om detta abslutar Paulus med att säga att Håret är den slöja (mitt ord) som är given för att täcka kvinnans huvud.
