Side note to the RICE post.

about the Veil:
While the wedding itself apparently had no formal ceremony, there was, nevertheless, a very joyous celebration of weddings in Israel. On the day of the wedding, at her own home the bride usually made elaborate preparations. She prepared herself for the marriage by adorning herself with her finest garments, ornaments and jewelry. In those ancient times her ensemble included a form of veil that covered the head and, in some cases, reached to the feet. (Jer. 2:32; Isa. 3:19, 23; 49:18) This head covering symbolized the subjection of the bride to her bridegroom.β€”Gen. 24:65; 1 Cor. 11:5-10.

  • so anyway I posted this to show that the Veil doesn't have to do with worship to another god as does the rice and other customs that we don't take part in...

  • But the veil has to do with a bride giving herself to be under her husband's control. A concept that I see as being as bad, or even worse, than worshiping another god. It makes me sad. :(
