1 Corinthians 11:16 S.O.A.P.

1 Corinthians 11:16
But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

After discussing length of hair and covering one’s head, Paul ends by saying this is not a church custom. Paul seemed to be talking here about cultural norms and how they are applied in corporate worship.

The biblical context includes culture. However, we must remember when we are discussing culture not to try to spin these norms as as God’s law for our life. Especially when such an argument leads to contention.

Lord help me to rightly divide as I read and understand the Bible. I seek to know your truth as it applies to culture and not the other way around.
