    In Pauls epistle to the Corinthian church he refers to nature as a teacher in the matter of men having long hair. I was amused last night at one of my 4 yr old daughters drawings, it was of our family. Dad and son had short hair and pants, while Mom and daughter had long hair and dresses. I think that it is interesting that many public restrooms have signs depicting the same. Can you imagine if a blind person or illiterate person came to the restroom sign and both had long hair and dresses or both had short hair and pants. Well as long as time lasts nature itself will be a great teacher. Oh well looks like the feminist movement has not completely succeeded in turning our women into men and our men into women.

    Yeah, too bad they screwed it up in Biblical times and all wore robes.

    That's why they didn't have public restrooms back then. They couldn't make the signs look right.

    What really boggles my mind is why there is braile on a drive up ATM....

    Children are taught by their parents.. your girls are reflecting what you are teaching them.. With this case it is nurture not nature...

    I am always amazed that some ultra-legalized churches haven't cited nudity as being biblical. Afterall, Adam and Eve were naked before they disobeyed God. Then they only had a fig leaf!

    Cheers,

    Jim

    They do practice nudity. They nakedly expose themselves before the world by what they do and say.

    Biblical lessons come from many sources. They are not extrabiblical in source, but still teachers.

    Cheers,

    Most good, God fearing men in the Bible would have had long hair, unshaven faces, and worn long robes that did not have individual legs. They also bathed rarely. Wonder what would happen if I showed up in some churches dressed like that?

    High and tight hair cuts were only the trend since the 1950s.

    I'm still not sure how we can require a first century social custom in 21st century life.

    We had short haircuts in the 30's and 40's too. Short as the bowl on the head and the scissor cut around the bowl's edge. :saint:

    Cheers,

    Come to Canada. It is mandatory to have separate washrooms here. Besides, the latrines in women's washrooms are too high!

    Cheers,
