comment What happened to the the practice of women covering their heads?
I was thinking more of the gentile women, since Paul was writing and ministering primarily to the gentiles.

comment What happened to the the practice of women covering their heads?
Immediately before Christianity, was it common for women to demonstrate their submission to male leadership through covering their heads? (Your answer assumes that was the case, which I am now challenging)

@DavidStratton I misinterpreted the phrase "end times figure" to mean person.

comment Why does God resort to genocide and destruction?
@AffableGeek God commanded the genocide. God is the one who decides when someone should die. God didn't command euthanasia or mercy killings. The Israelites were obeying God, not playing God.

comment Are Many Christians postmodern in their approach to modesty?
Being a Christian means trying to be more like Christ and incidentally less like the world. Many "Christians" seem more interested in being a close as they can to the world in how they dress.

comment Why does God resort to genocide and destruction?
God said to Abraham, Genesis 15:16, "In the fourth generation your descendants (the Israelites) will come back here,(from Egypt) for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.” Mercy was given for a time. When the Israelites returned from Egypt, that was when genocide was commanded-because the Amorites had rejected God's mercy and kept on sinning. If killing were the only option, genocide would have occured much sooner.

Read Leviticus 18:13-30 but especially verse 29 , "For everyone who does any of these abominations, the persons who do them shall be cut off from among their people."(esv) Genocide was incidental. God did and does cut off the wicked. Sometimes entire nations practice abominations and that is when "genocide" occurs. How does God have another option? His nature demands justice and righteousness.

comment What is the specific meaning of “die” in Genesis 2?
What about Gen 3:22? after Adam and Eve sinned "the LORD God said, 'The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.'" That sure sounds like physically living forever.

comment Could more miraculous works bring more persons to faith?
@AffableGeek I thought when DavidLaberge asked, "What are the Biblical reasons for miracle?" he was asking what the purposes of miracles are.

@AffableGeek What do you mean by "raise" it? Improve it? How? I thought it was already an answer.

What does it mean to trust God "of his own accord"? Jesus said (John14:11) "Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves." Does it matter whether someone believes because of a testimony vs. a miracle? A sheep is a sheep whether it walks through the gate or is carried. Oh, and God is not like a baker in that God can make omelette without eggs.

Your statement about Miracles not accomplishing what God desires is preposterous. How can an act of God not accomplish what God desires? Miracles may be rewards of faith or a catalyst to the formation of faith. See my answer for more details.
