What did Paul Mean When He Said “Judge for Yourselves”?

In 1 Corinthians 11:13 the Apostle Paul says

Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? (1 Cor 11:13 NASB)

Some have suggested that this verse leaves the matter of headcovering to the individuals own judgment. That each person can determine for themselves if they would like to practice this symbol.

But is that what Paul meant when he told the church to “judge for yourselves”. In this video I’ll show you why this cannot be the case.
