“Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head” - 1 Corinthians 11:4. This phrase is part of a sentence in the middle of a very long letter that Shaul (Paul) wrote to a troubled group of Believers in the pagan city of Corinth. This ‘numbered sound byte’ has been extracted from its historical and scriptural context in order to develop theology that has no relationship to what Shaul was communicating to these 1st century Believers. Michael Rood puts this phrase back into its proper context and shows that the transgressions committed by the former pagans of Corinth are the very same errors entangling Believers today – rampant kingdom building “Nicolaitanism” in which shepherds wield confiscated authority to intimidate and control the flock of God. Michael, along with Shaul, exposes the “shepherding” perversions common today, and delineates a clear path of correction for those who desire to follow the Messiah.
