"Greek and Headcoverings"

It seems that people of a great Book do have a tendency to dispute over what the words mean, or meant in their original context. These things are spiritually discerned, of course, but many wise and knowledgeable people have come to different understandings about the Word. Consider the numerous writings of teachers of the different "faiths" throughout the centuries. The apostle Paul wrote:

"If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome
words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine
which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is
obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come
envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wranglings of men
of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that
godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself"
(1 Timothy 6:3-5).

I do not mean to stir up strife and disputes over words with this little blog, but I know that disputes happen. If you are interested in studying words concerning 1 Corinthians 11, please check out the apparently ongoing discussion at the Puritan Board: Greek and Head Coverings.

I would advise any who are searching the words of God to pray for His guidance to understanding.
