    On women covering and /or hair a Christ centered understanding
    1 Cor. 11:3Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 4Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. 5And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is just as though her head were shaved. 6If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. 7A man ought not to cover his head,[b] since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
    Does a woman need a power on her head?
    THE ISSUE PAUL WAS EXPLAINING ABOUT HEAD COVERING AND LONG HAIR HAS TO DO WITH FALSE TEACHINGS. PAUL IDENTIFIES THE PROBLEM:

    1Cor 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on [her] head because of the angels.

    Now the writer of Hebrews is saying
    THE HEIRS OF SALVATION ARE US.
    PAUL EXPLAINS THAT IN THE NEW COVENANT OF GRACE ANGELS ARE TO SERVE US NOT TO WATCH US FULLFIL THE LAW. He said
    that angels

    Apostle Paul said:1Cor 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on [her] head because of the angels.said:
    Hbr 1:16For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants. 17For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.
    THE FALSE TEACHING THAT WAS BROUGHT TO THE CORINTHIANS WAS1Cor 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on [her] head because of the angels.
    HOWEVER PAUL IS CONSISTENT WITH HIS ARGUMENT ABOUT ALL of us being in the NEW COVENANT OF GRACE and not in the LAW/OLD COVENANT.

    Galatians 3:10 All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law."
    When you use a statement in the new covenant of grace and mix it with law you will be bringing people under a curse.
    Gal 3:11Clearly no one is justified before God by the law, because, "The righteous will live by faith."
    Receiving covering, thus, honor because of ones hair is not faith is signs and works.
    Gal 3: 12The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, "The man who does these things will live by them."

    ...13Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree." 14He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

    Gal 3:19
    Wherefore then
    Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
    LOOK, THIS IS THE DANGER,THE DANGER: FALSE TEACHINGSTEACHING PROMOTES WORKS
    ...
    and IT DIRECTDIRECTS PEOPLE TOWARDS
    Gal 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
    FOR IN CRIST NEITHER VEIL NOR VEIL, NEITHER LONG HAIR NOR SHORT HAIR IS ANYTHING, BUT FAITH WHICH WORKS BY LOVE.
    Gal 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
    Gal 5:2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
    WALKThe issue Paul was addresing was not about household, was about false doctrine, that was Paul's correction.
    PAUL POINTOUT THE FALSE TEACHING
    1 Cor. 11:8For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
    PAUL'S ARGUMENT-- IS NOT HEADSHIP BASED ON A CHAUVINIST, PATRIARCHAL WORLDVIEW BUT
    BY FAITH,CHRIST'S PERSPECTIVE
    11In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.
    THIS IS CHRIST'S PERSPECTIVE
    11In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.
    WHEN PAUL MAKES REFERENCE TO ANGELS IS IMPORTANT
    BECAUSE HE IS IDENTIFYING FROM WHERE THAT EXPLANATION ABOUT COVERING WAS BEING DISTORTED.
    THAT IS WHY HE SAID, HOWEVER
    THEN, HE SAYS NATURE-- IN THE NATURAL, IN OUR CULTURE WE HAVE THIS RULES OF HAIR, AND WE MEET THEM.
    1COR. 11
    Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.
    PAUL CONTINUES HIS ARGUMENT CLOSING
    16If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God.
    HE WAS NOT GOING TO CONTINUE
    WITH OUTTHE DISCUSSION ABOUT COVERING, HIS EXPLANATION WAS ENOUGH, AS MINE IS NOW.
    BROTHERS AND SISTERS WALK BY FAITH, BECAUSE WITHOUT
    FAITH IS
    Hebrew 11:6And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
    2 Cor. 3:4Such confidence as this is ours through Christ before God. 5Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. 6He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
    7Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, fading though it was, 8will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious? Sprit not body, or hairy manifestations.
    9If the ministry that condemns men is glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness!
    10For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. 11And if what was fading away came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts!
    12Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold.
    13We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away.

    Originally, "hierarchy" meant "rule by priests". Since hierarchical churches such as the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches had tables of organization that were "hierarchical" in the modern sense of the word, the term came to refer to similar organizational methods in more general settings.

    The Vision of the Church is not hierarchical, is about many acting as one. The church ministries which are gifts for the body are to stand over the foundation of Christ to sustain the church until the body grows into the likeness of Christ. Patriarchy promotes a hierarchical view of human relationship.
    Galatians 3:26You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, 27for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
    1 Corinthians 12:12The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 13For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.

    [Spanish, from macho, male; see macho.]
    In the popular press, in reference materials and in academic literature, the term machismo has been used in many different, quite often contradictory, ways. Even if no one can say for sure where the term came from or what it means, it appears to be a central concept in discussions of the roles, status, rights, responsibilities, influences and moral positions of men and women. The most oft-cited definition seems to have come from Evelyn Stevens, who described machismo as a "cult of virility" whose chief characteristics are "exaggerated aggressiveness and intransigence in male-to-male interpersonal relationships and arrogance and sexual aggression in male-to-female relationships."
    {machismo-mata.gif}
    Machismo by a definition Dr. Yenan Silen
    Machismo is an ideology of values and beliefs that promote the idea that women are weaker and men are stronger, thus the head of the house. Masculinity is identified with power and control, which manifest as physical, economical and psychologycal power with the objective to mantain "the man" in dominion/control over his domain: women, children and properties. This dominion must be mantained at any expense, to lose ones' dominion will be equal to be weak and a failure. Thus, a "machista" despises anything that is related to feminism. The woman is an object to posses, an object to provide sexual gratification and to serve him. Women are responsible of the household work. The basic roles in family interaction are for the man to work outside of the home and bring money for the household expenses and for the woman to work inside the house maintenance, which includes children and husband. Women are to obey her husband, boyfriend, fiance or father and boss. Women need the male protection because they are weak, ignorant and propense to being decieved. From this point of view Eve is the responsable for the human fall and condenmed by God to have children and be dominated by her husband.

    In 1995, local child protective service agencies identified 126,000 children who were victims of either substantiated or indicated sexual abuse; of these, 75% were girls. Nearly 30% of child victims were between the ages of 4 and 7. This is according to the 1995 Child Maltreatment study, US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families.
    12-34 are the highest risk years. Risk peaks in the late teens: girls 16 to 19 are four times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape or sexual assault. This is according to the **2000 National Crime Victimization Study** (PDF, 131KB).
