1 Corinthians 11:1-16 – Of Men, Women, and Head Coverings

Preacher: Robert Truelove | Sermon Length: 1 hr 5min | Preached: Feb 2017

Robert Truelove

Robert Truelove is the pastor of Christ Reformed Church in Lawrenceville, GA. Before being ordained into the ministry in 2002, Robert served five years as the Director of Software & Internet Development for Larry Burkett at Christian Financial Concepts. Robert moved into full-time pastoral ministry in January of 2007 as the pastor of Heritage Presbyterian Church. A few years later he became persuaded of a baptistic understanding of the Scriptures and became a Reformed Baptist. Since that time, he continues laboring in the ministry to see God’s people grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. He and his wife Patricia have 4 children.

 

EDITORS NOTES: This pastor used to hold to the view that the “praying and prophesying” was speaking of spiritual gifts. Since he believes the sign gifts have ceased, the head covering wouldn’t have a relevant application in our modern churches. He no longer holds that position so he spends some time explaining why he doesn’t any longer.

Capítulo 1: A História da Cobertura Feminina Cristã

“Disto eu sei, que até cinquenta anos atrás, cada mulher em cada igreja cobriu sua cabeça… O que aconteceu nos últimos cinquenta anos? Tivemos um movimento feminista.” 1) R.C. Sproul Jr. “Should Christians only sing Psalms in local churches?” (Christianity.com video, 2012) http://bit.ly/sproulpsalms

A cobertura feminina não é uma nova doutrina. Desde a época dos apóstolos até o século XX, esta prática foi defendida pela maioria dos cristãos. Na verdade, ainda é a opinião da maioria em grande parte do mundo oriental. Entretanto, no Ocidente a prática caiu em desgraça e agora é mantida apenas por uma minoria. Mas nem sempre este foi o caso.

Alice Morse Earle (historiadora americana, 1851-1911) documentou em seu livro “Two Centuries of Costume in America”, escrito há mais de cem anos:

“Uma coisa singular pode ser notada nesta história, ─ que com todos os caprichos da moda, a mulher nunca violou a lei bíblica que manda cobrir sua cabeça. Ela nunca foi aos cultos da igreja com a cabeça descoberta.” 2) Alice Morse Earle, Two Centuries of Costume in America, vol. 2, 1620–1820. (New York: Macmillan, 1903), 582.

Então, uma historiadora americana nos diz que quando olhamos para duzentos anos de história que se passou, mesmo com as mudanças de moda, a única coisa que não mudou foi que todas as mulheres cristãs cobriam suas cabeças na igreja. Agora, antes de explorar o que aconteceu para que essa prática fosse radicalmente abandonada, precisamos de uma visão geral do que a igreja tem dito sobre este símbolo ao longo dos tempos. Vamos fazer um tour pela história, começando pela igreja primitiva, e veremos o que grandes pastores e teólogos influentes disseram sobre essa prática. Read more
