The wearing of fabric head coverings in worship was universally the practice of Christian women until the twentieth century. What happened? Did we suddenly find some biblical truth to which the saints for thousands of years were blind? Or were our biblical views of women gradually eroded by the modern feminist movement that has infiltrated the Church...? - R.C. Sproul

What Did Thomas Wall Believe About Head Covering?

[Series introduction: This post is part of a series that examines what certain leaders in church history believed about head covering. Their arguments, choice of language and conclusions should not be misconstrued as an endorsement from us. The purpose of this series is to faithfully show what they believed about covering rather than only selectively quoting the parts we agree with.]

Thomas Wall (17th Century) is the author of numerous works including “Baptism Anatomized”, “A Comment on the Times” and “Tythes, No Gospel”. He lived in the United Kingdom and was actively writing in the late 17th century.

In 1688, Thomas Wall published a book entitled Spiritual Armour To Defend the Head From the Superfluity of Naughtiness.” It was a passionate rebuke of men wearing their hair long (contrary to 1 Cor 11:14) and women cutting their hair short (contrary to 1 Cor 11:15). This was a widespread issue, which Wall says was “suffered in almost every Congregation that say they are the Churches of God.” He said that this “sin is so generally spread, that it is as a Leprosie”. He hoped that his book would help Christians take seriously what God’s word and nature teaches us about our hair.

The Apostle Paul’s reason for proper hair lengths is “grounded in God’s order in Nature” and was for people “in all ages”. Read more

Covering Testimony: Carlie Bunch

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hello! My name is Carlie. I’m a Holistic Health Coach, specializing in pre-preg, maternity, and postpartum wellness, as well as what I call “little life ruiners”.. I’ve been living a vegan lifestyle for about a year and a half as my own journey to a healthier body. I started getting even closer to God when I did this because I started a garden and got to see nature happen before my eyes. It really helped me admire how beautiful and creative He is! One of my dreams is to ‘dance among the stars’.. Not literally, but I hope that in heaven I can worship Him while being amazed at the wonder of the universe He created! I’m a cat lover and I feel a serious heart-string for women in the sex industry…

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it.

I recently began going to Antioch Community Church for the second time. I left for a few years when I moved, but it’s been on my heart to go back since I moved back to Norman. I went back for the first time just recently, actually. That is the church where I met Jesus. They loved me when there was nothing lovable about me. They saw my brokenness and spoke God’s truth over me, they spoke identity over me, and they accepted me as their sister. They have a huge heart for evangelism, missions, and loving the lost in general. Read more

An Introduction to Christian Head Covering [Video]

Earlier this month we announced that we had set-up a studio and were expanding into video. Today, we’re excited to share our first video “An Introduction to Christian Head Covering“. This particular video is based on one of our very first articles. Click the play button below to watch it.

Expanding into YouTube is a huge step for us in spreading the word about this teaching. There’s a large group of people out there who when they’re researching a topic, watch videos instead of reading articles. We’re excited to have a presence on YouTube for whenever people are looking into this doctrine.

We need your help to establish our account and videos on YouTube. The more views and subscribers we receive will greatly help us appear near the top of search results. Would you subscribe to our channel as well as like and share our first video? Let’s get the word out together!
