Here is what I discovered…”

  • The Headcovering as a Universal Practice (A Ruby in the Rough)
    “The headcovering requirement is based on the order of creation. It has been argued that this means that the principle of male headship is permanent, but the particular application of it (i.e. headcovering) was cultural. There is no evidence in the passage for this.”
