Because God Said It

Now I want you to know that Christ is the head over all men, and a man is the head over a woman. But God is the head over Christ.  This means that any man who prays or prophesies with something on his head brings shame to his head.  But any woman who prays or prophesies without something on her head brings shame to her head. In fact, she may as well shave her head.  A woman should wear something on her head. It is a disgrace for a woman to shave her head or cut her hair. But if she refuses to wear something on her head, let her cut off her hair.  Men were created to be like God and to bring honor to God. This means that a man should not wear anything on his head. Women were created to bring honor to men.  It was the woman who was made from a man, and not the man who was made from a woman.

1 Corinthians 11 : 3-8

These verses show how the Word of God is opposed to the world system.  According to accepted "truth" in today's world to say that, "a man is the head over a woman" is offensive and wrong!  It is also objectionable today to quote God's Word when it says "Women were created to bring honor to men."   

There are those who say: "If God said it, then I accept and believe it."  And others would take the position: "If God said it, then I reject it and refuse to believe it."  They decide to reject whatever, if the source of those Words is God!  They don't consider whether or not the Words are true, but rather who said it!  It is what rebellious children do when they decide to always be disobedient to their parents.  That attitude will result in a bad outcome for a child!  It is also like two opposing political parties who always object to the position of the other party with no regard for truth!

Sometimes a parent tells their child to believe something "BECAUSE I SAID SO."  When you are a child there is great wisdom in believing your parents.  When you are a child of God, there is great wisdom in believing His Word even when you don't understand it!

Because of who God is and who you are, you will never completely understand God while you live here on this earth.  But you can believe God and every Word that He speaks!  You will understand it when you step past the Gate of Eternity and see Him face to face!

"Lord Jesus, I confess that I don't understand everything You say, but I choose today to believe Your Word and be obedient to it!  I believe You because of Who You Are and not because You always make sense to me!  May Your Holy Name be praised now and forever.  Amen."
