comment What is the head covering referring to in 1 Corinthians 11:4-6?
If I had a definitive answer, I would have answered the question. As is, it seems to mean something that goes on your head and is not your hair. At least, that's how the text reads. But that could be anything from a bonnet to a box to a wig to an umbrella to a prayer shawl.

"For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off"... This part does not make sense with what you are saying. This part of the holy text implies that the woman's hair is already long and that if she does not cover the long hair, it should be cut short. That seems to be a pretty direct reading of the text. So, do you think that long haired women should wear a wig?

You're making some big leaps here. I'm not seeing anything in the text that suggests "a man's agreement" equals head covering. It's almost as if you picked a random spot and linked the two together. It's like saying that Prov. 31:2 says that strength and dignity is a woman's clothing and therefore her head covering is strength (Therefore a woman must pray with strength). I completely made that up and it seems as plausible as this answer.

comment What does it mean to be “born of water”?
@user3558931 You are free to choose your interpretation. I'm not picking one interpretation over the other, I'm just presenting them. I can give my opinions, but opinions aren't really useful on this site, are they?

So you think "covering" == "hair"? Verse 6 seems to directly conflict this "For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off;" If "cover her head" means having long hair, then Paul is saying that if a woman doesn't have long hair, she should have her hair cut. That would mean that Paul is talking in circles, which he is not prone to doing. It seems to me that you are the one defining your own terms, not Paul.
