So, if a woman can prophesy in church, why can't she teach so long as her head is covered (her husband or father and the pastor permit her)?Hill Top wrote: ↑Mon May 11, 2020 11:39 pmI agree.Spiritblade Disciple wrote: ↑Mon May 11, 2020 9:19 pmMy definition of prophecy (in agreement with Hagin, insofar as I remember) is speaking to others as inspired by the Spirit for the purposes of edification, exhortation, and comfort. It can contain foretelling, but more usually it is forth telling. Much preaching and teaching contains prophecy or is prophecy to a degree.
Acts also has examples of women prophets. (Acts 2:17 and 21:9)Concerning women and prophecy in the church, 1st Corinthians gives some instructions concerning prayer and prophecy as it pertains to women in the church gathering. Head covering being a prerequisite, of course. This idea of head covering is understood differently in different cultures to which the Gospel has come.
As for head coverings, what is there to understand?
Paul writes..."But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering." (1 Cor 11:15)
Not permitting it when it can be done decently and in order is the same as not requiring all men everywhere to pray with uplifted hands.
