Any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled disgraces her head

In today’s world while praying at home or in the church women do not use veil. As per the below bible verses it is not correct. I am not an expert in explaining the bible, just a normal man only. But in my childhood days and even now I see many women put some cloth on their head while praying. But for some women, it is a fashion or may be they are not aware of the bible verses or custom which a christian woman should follow.  Kindly read the below bible verses in which St. Paul clearly saying what we should follow as Christians.

1 Corinthians 11:2-11

Head Coverings

2 I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions just as I handed them on to you. 3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the husband is the head of his wife, and God is the head of Christ. 4 Any man who prays or prophesies with something on his head disgraces his head, 5 but any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled disgraces her head—it is one and the same thing as having her head shaved. 6 For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or to be shaved, she should wear a veil. 7 For a man ought not to have his head veiled, since he is the image and reflection of God; but woman is the reflection of man. 8 Indeed, man was not made from woman, but woman from man. 9 Neither was man created for the sake of woman, but woman for the sake of man. 10 For this reason a woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man or man independent of woman. 12 For just as woman came from man, so man comes through woman; but all things come from God. 13 Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head unveiled? 14 Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears long hair, it is degrading to him, 15 but if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering. 16 But if anyone is disposed to be contentious—we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God.

God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity

Think about today’s wold. People know about God, go to church, pray daily but everything is just as a routine work. They are become wicked. They forget about God’s invisible qualities, eternal power and divine nature. They know that God can see every wrong what the do, but still they do the same wrong again and again. They do confession, but again do same sin. So God give them pain, diseases.

Today technology has improved a lot, just touch of a finger tip we can do many things sitting at home or travelling. This made people to think they are wise, but the scripture says that “Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools“. Because people have no time for God, but have time for other worldly pleasures.

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.(Romans 1:18-25)

Above bible verses 24 is a true these days. Internet is one of the main medium for this.

Below verses speak what is happening today. We read news about this lust and sinful unnatural relations. Even some people are fighting for this and according to them all these are good for happiness. Satan is playing a great role on this.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love,no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:26-32)

Each and every word written in above verses is really true and fact these days. Fighting each other, killing, children do not obey parents or elders and do whatever they like.

Let us pray to God to have mercy on us, change the world, send the Holy Spirit to the mind of such people for repentance. Lord save this world.

Jesus can change our life

In today’s new technology world we have many medium for entertainment, social networking which all sometimes make us to addicted to that happiness. We forget the God, we have no time for God. I also was like that. I was addicted to internet, not blogging or any useful way, but just entertainment. I used to be on net without proper sleep. I got sick. At that time, I realised my mistake. I started changing. Started praying daily timely. Earlier also I used to pray, but that was just to fulfill the routine. As advised by spiritual leaders I attended inner healing retreats in Sehion Retreat Centre. Spiritual talks, counselling, meditation all helped me to change. Now I feel much better, feel happiness, but not like earlier. In the Retreat Centre, I found a Prayer Book for the Sick which I pray daily. From my experience, I suggest every sick person must pray with this book. You must pray for your friends/relatives who are sick. Praying for others is a good thing. God will heal them with your prayers and he will bless you. Now I started this Blog to spread the word of God. I am not a preacher, not a writer, but a simple man. Still trying to do my best through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Are you addicted to internet just for entertainment ? Do you have any such experience which changed your life? If yes, share with others in the comment below. Reading experience of a person help other person to think and change his life.

Misuse of the tongue – Sins of the tongue

Holy Bible

You need your tongue to chew, swallow, and sing. You taste with it, talk with it, and sometimes even stick it out! What is evil tongue? A tongue which speak evil things is an evil tongue. A tongue can make friends, make enemies, make another person happy, make another person cry and much more. So a tongue is very powerful part of the human body. It is apparent that we all have within our power many uses of the tongue that are good and acceptable with God. But there are specific references to types of misuse of the tongue as well. You witness the misuse of the tongue every day. Whether it is your classmates who gossip and betray one another, or people who verbally abuse each other, you see it all the time! The tongue can be a powerful tool for good or a powerful weapon for those who are bent on evil. The tongue has the ability to determine the direction of our lives. It can make or break us.  The tongue is certainly an essential tool in carrying out our God given responsibilities. It is safe to say that any misuse of the tongue like cursing, backbiting, lying, spreading rumour, or presenting false doctrine is done to cover up a weakness. If one is able to control his tongue, he is a mature person able to control his whole body. Lack of control means just the opposite of control and is an indication of gross immaturity.

We want to see how specifically the Scriptures speak out against sins of the tongue.

12 If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
    if you spit on it, it will be put out;
    yet both come out of your mouth.

13 Curse the gossips and the double-tongued,
    for they destroy the peace of many.

14 Slander has shaken many,
    and scattered them from nation to nation;
it has destroyed strong cities,
    and overturned the houses of the great.

15 Slander has driven virtuous women from their homes,
    and deprived them of the fruit of their toil.

16 Those who pay heed to slander will not find rest,
    nor will they settle down in peace.

17 The blow of a whip raises a welt,
    but a blow of the tongue crushes the bones.

18 Many have fallen by the edge of the sword,
    but not as many as have fallen because of the tongue.

19 Happy is the one who is protected from it,
    who has not been exposed to its anger,
who has not borne its yoke,
    and has not been bound with its fetters.

20 For its yoke is a yoke of iron,
    and its fetters are fetters of bronze;

21 its death is an evil death,
    and Hades is preferable to it.

22 It has no power over the godly;
    they will not be burned in its flame.

23 Those who forsake the Lord will fall into its power;
    it will burn among them and will not be put out.
It will be sent out against them like a lion;
    like a leopard it will mangle them.

24a As you fence in your property with thorns,
25b     so make a door and a bolt for your mouth.
24b As you lock up your silver and gold,
25a     so make balances and scales for your words.

26 Take care not to err with your tongue,
    and fall victim to one lying in wait. (Sirach 28:12 to 26)

Obviously we have all misused our tongues. Think of a situation you remember where you sinned in this way. If possible try to ask pardon to that person you hurt with your tongue, else remember him in your prayers and ask pardon in prayer to God for the sin done with your tongue. Ready, Set, Done

The Meaning of Happiness Changes Over Your Lifetime

This is a very good post for every one to read, especially for the young who do not take care of the old, but put them in old age homes.

Swinging Happiness for BlogThe following is a scientific and personal article written by CAH member Troy Campbell about happiness.

One lovely afternoon, I began chatting to my grandpa. I was completely unaware he was about to say something that would change my view of happiness forever.

In the middle of our conversation, I felt a lull so I pulled out the classic question. “If you could have dinner with one person, living or dead, who would it be?” I couldn’t wait to talk about my long list of dead presidents, dead Beatles, dead scientists, and a really cute living movie star. But I was also really eager to hear what he’d say.

Then he simply answered, “My wife.”

I immediately assured him it’s not necessary for him to answer like that. We all knew he loves his wife, whom he eats dinner with every night and was currently over in the other room…

Who is Jesus Christ in your life ?

Who is Jesus Christ to you?

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full “(John 10:10)

Why is Jesus Christ important to you? Jesus is the only way for us to live an abundant life here on earth, or receive eternal life in fellowship with God. Jesus is the only one who can forgive and transform us, thereby delivering us from the power and penalty of sin:

“There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

How has Jesus influenced your life? Are you ready to accept Jesus as saviour ?
