1 Corinthians 11:10 Because of the Angels

1 Corinthians 11:10 says, “For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.”It is generally inferred and more than implied that because the woman was deceived and sinned first, that females are inherently more naïve, gullible, and prone to fall prey to seduction than males. And that because of this, her perpetual consequence this side of Heaven, for her personal protection and for the good of everyone else, is, from her birth to her death, to be placed under male authority. A close look at the original language the Bible was written it makes it clear that the general understanding of the first part of 1 Corinthians 11:10 needs to be challenged, but it is the last few words of the verse that seem so mysterious. In fact, most Bible scholars honestly admit to being baffled by it. That is the portion of the verse that reads, “because of the angels.”

When looking for answers, it is important to be certain that we are asking the right questions. And a good place to begin solving the mystery of 1 Corinthians 11:10, is to ask what it might be that womankind has in common with the angels. There is not much that humankind has in common with angels—either male or female, but womankind does have the distinction of having DECEPTION in common with angels. Was not the angel, Lucifer, deceived into thinking that he could be as God? The scriptures record that the highest ranking angel was deceived, sinned and subsequently caused the fall of one third of all the angels who chose to follow him into perdition. Hmmmm, sound familiar?
