The bible is clear a man should not have long hair, Samson was used by God to teach us something, like making a donkey talk, taking a man up in a whirlwind, taking all a man children and giving them all back. This was not the norm, nature teaches us what is normal. Long hair is not normal for a man.

Samson was commanded by God that he should never cut his hair (for what reason(s) I do not know) but to be commanded to not cut his hair clearly shows us it was the norm for men to cut their hair; Sampson was about to become a one of a kind kind of guy and his hair length was not the norm. The bible says it's against nature to be homosexual and it says it's against nature for men to have long hair. Asking the question, "how long is long?" is all too often the same as asking, "Can God make a stone so large that even he can't move it?" Those are Satan questions, clever words to deceive - same as when he said to Eve, 'you shall surely NOT die." There were many things that God overlooked ... until the cross and there after. If you're a Christian man and you're wondering what 'long hair' means, perhaps you're just looking for an 'out'? If you're struggling with what constitutes 'long hair' on a man, maybe just get a crewcut or a cut around the ears and the back above the collar and be done with the questioning ...

Define: "long". And by whose definition?
Aren't we (including Paul) really talking about masculinity VS effeminacy? And is this really something we want to beat each other over the hairy head with?
Now before you jump me, do an honest study of the Shroud of Turin. Then we shall talk further.

I don't catch the revelation about this verse, because Samson had hair on his head and it brought glory upon him. How come it says it is a shame here when the word of God never changes? Please anyone who can explain this to me, kindly do. thanks

The Shroud Of Turin depicts Jesus with long hair. Further more, 1st Corinthians 11:14 says: "Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him". Fact is! "The Very Nature Of Things" prove "Lions, Horses, Bison, Wolves, Guinnea Pigs, Orangutans, etc," all have long hair. The original Greek text symbolizes men ornamenting their hair as women did. Paul was the only disciple to make this claim. Jesus himself, never commanded it, nor spoke of it.
This I do agree!.....
"View Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:14
For a man to have long hair, carefully adjusted, is such a mark of effeminacy as is a disgrace to him."

I believe that the Bible is plain when it says that it is a shame for a man to have long hair. This is one of the ways that we are able to determine the difference between the sexes.
