Covering The Web

Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

  • Campaign encourages head coverings for women (St. Joseph News-Press)
    “Long gone are the days of ladies wearing hats to church. Or are they? If an online campaign has its way, church-going women will soon return to wearing head coverings during worship.”
  • Web Users Want to Know: ‘Why Do Christian Women Cheat, Wear Skirts, Cover Their Heads?’ (The Christian Post: Buzzvine)
    “Popular search engines Google, Yahoo and Bing use what’s called predictive search, and when queried “why do Christian women…” the search engines reveal that online users appear to be most curious about Christian women’s relationship and clothing habits.”
  • The Head Covering: Ordinance or Custom: Part 2 (Bible League Trust)
    Published in The Bible League Quarterly magazine issues #454 (Jul-Sep’13). “…unlike social conventions the ordinances of Christ are not subject to variation or change. They are to be kept, held fast to, taught and passed on, not contended with or argued away. Our calling before God is to obey, to put those ordinances into practice, including the covering and uncovering of the head, and to teach them to our children.”
  • Take the hats off when you pray, boys. (Ryan Douglas Scott)
    “This tradition of men removing their hats goes back further than John Wayne and Roy Rogers. It goes all the way back to Corinthians, in fact. If a man prays having his head covered, he is disrespecting and bringing dishonor to his head, which is Jesus. Now that’s a pretty serious claim.”

What? Me? Wear a Hat? (Sermon)

What? Me? Wear a Hat? Sermon by Rev. David Mook

Preacher: Rev. David Mook | Sermon Length: 37 min | Year preached: 2002
Rev. David Mook is an adjunct professor at Geneva Reformed Seminary, teaching in the field of practical theology. Mr. Mook did undergraduate and graduate work at Bob Jones University, graduating from there in 1976 with a master of arts in Dramatic Production. He served as a faculty member in the speech department at BJU until 1983, when he entered what is now called Geneva Reformed Seminary. He received his master of divinity degree, was licensed to preach, and moved with his family to Phoenix, Arizona, to begin establishing a new congregation for the Free Presbyterian Church. Services began early in 1986 and the congregation was formally constituted by the presbytery in 1995. Mr. Mook has served in a number of capacities in the denomination both as a part of the standing commission of the presbytery for North America and now in the presbytery of the Free Presbyterian Church of North America. In 2006 he was elected moderator of the presbytery and now serves as its clerk. Mr. Mook and his wife, Mary, have a daughter and a granddaughter.
The inspired Apostle Paul established the truth that the practice of women wearing headcoverings during public worship is not a cultural creation but a submission to the structure of authority that Christ has established in His church. His teaching has the same force as that which follows dealing with the Lord’s Supper.

  • The Head Covering: Ordinance or Custom: Part 1 (Bible League Trust)
    “Without looking at all the arguments, I believe our understanding of the passage can be greatly helped by focusing on two crucial words, the first appearing at the beginning in verse 2, and the second at the end in verse 16. They are the words ordinances and custom.”
  • Headcoverings (Infertility Mom)
    Jennifer Saake, author of “Hannah’s Hope” (NavPress, 2005) writes on her head covering journey. “That I feel convicted that God is asking me to cover my head in no way makes me any “more spiritual” than the next woman. It simply means that in this one area, I would be in outright rebellion to what God has convicted me if I did not obey what I believe He has called me to.”
  • Why Your Hair Is Not Your “Head Covering” (YouTube / Know Jesus First)
    A video showing why “hair” cannot be the head covering in 1 Corinthians 11 (besides verse 15). If you believe “long hair” rather than just “hair” is the covering we wrote about that here.
  • Head Coverings and Skirts (The Proper ‘Biblical!’ Lady)
    “Because the Bible does not describe a head covering, there is no right or wrong one… I have chosen to wear white bandanas or other types of coverings that when you see them, you know right away what it is.”
