in response to reader comment: question for Dima and Anonymous

Submitted by JustMe (United States), Mar 1, 2006 at 21:25

1. Does Christianity permit women to show off their body?
2. Why do the Catholic nuns cover their body and head?
3. Does Christianity allow men and women to have sex without being married?
4. Does Chirstianity permit giving birth to children outside marriage?
5. Does God have any gender? Is God male or female?

1. no
2. dunno (I'm not Catholic)
3. no
4. if you obeyed #3 this wouldn't be an issue
5. Male (1 Corinthians 11:7)

Interestingly enough, as I was reading 1 Corinthians 11:1-10 to answer your question, it talks mostly about women covering their heads, and this is the New Testament. It says women should cover their heads and men shouldn't. I did not know that.
