comment What is “sin that leads to death” in 1 John 5:16?
@Gerald This very question has been discussed in-depth over at Christianity.SE. However, to address your comment... Are you saying that this passage is referring to non-believers and that "sin that leads to death" is only for non-believers? I restate, this seems contrary to other parts of that passage

comment What is the head covering referring to in 1 Corinthians 11:4-6?
Well that's definitely more text, but you've seemed to complicate the issue by bringing in this talk about communion and prophesying. I still don't see a clear connection beteeen head covering and authority. The added text just seems to "muddy the waters". I would love to make more recommendations, but at this point I can't see how to make heads or tails of this answer. Thanks for posting.

"Decoded"? What type of translation is that? Ignoring that concern... That verse you added almost ties your philosophy into the Bible. But not quite. You need more explanation of how that verse ties authority to head covering. I would want a holistic analysis of that entire section of text to even begin to believe this. As is, you seem to pull this theory almost out of thin air.

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?
