Covering The Web

Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

  • Uncovering the Head Covering Debate (Christianity Today)
    Not advocating head covering, but an important article because of where it was posted. If you’re visiting us from CT, click here: “If Paul, in inspired Scripture, asks the wives of the church to cover their heads to show that their submission to their husbands as a part of decorum for corporate worship, why don’t we modern complementarians do so? And why, for example, is this small but well-advertised headcovering movement trying to bring it back?”
  • A Long-Lost Secret of God to Strengthen Our Prayer Lives and Marriages (Peacefulwife’s Blog)
    “THIS DOESN’T APPLY ANYMORE, RIGHT? CAN’T I JUST MOVE ON TO THE STUFF ABOUT THE LORD’S SUPPER LATER IN THE CHAPTER? I argued with God. I tried to reason with Him. “I’m doing the long hair thing – that is my womanly glory. Isn’t that enough?” I looked up all the different ways people interpret this passage. I dug deeper – or maybe more accurately, I tried to find a way around what God was asking me to do.”
    NOTE: This post was updated with a new title and post in March 2017. The original is no longer available.
  • Head coverings a key symbol of Amish culture (Ohio’s Amish Country)
    “With many of their own customs and traditions, a distinct segment of this culture is the women’s head coverings. But if visitors were to ask why Amish women wear coverings, what kind of an answer would they receive?”
  • Christian Lady’s Head Covering (Mama Economics)
    “Many of you who have followed our family’s website from the beginning probably noticed that many of our pictures have been changed recently…Today I am going to detail the journey I have traveled that led to the conclusion of wearing a Christian lady’s head covering.”

Yesterday an article was posted on Christianity Today answering the question “what happened to head covering?” It was written by Luma Simms, who has written on this topic before but has now brought the conversation to the mainstream. Though Luma does not agree with our conclusions, we’re glad she was chosen to write on it. She’s smart, informed and her writings bleed grace and humility.

First time here?

If this is your first time visiting this site, I’d just like to welcome you. Our site has many different resources which both make a positive case for the timelessness of head covering as well as responses to various objections. Feel free to browse around and if I can help you in any way please contact me personally.

If this is a new topic to you here’s where I’d recommend starting:

Lastly, here are a few articles I’d like to recommend on topics that were mentioned or alluded to in Luma’s article.

[Guest Author: This article was written by a guest author. If you’re interested in writing for the Head Covering Movement please contact us.]

About the author: Brother Greg is the founder of SermonIndex.net which started in December 2002. The ministry began with a burden for true genuine revival from the ministry of Leonard Ravenhill and specifically his book: “Why Revival Tarries.” The ministry of SermonIndex is continually reaching more people with classic preaching from the past and the message of revival.

When we consider our walks with the Lord we sometimes can put great emphasis on the larger areas that the Lord desires from us. Such things as repentance, baptism, the Lord’s Supper, fellowshipping with others and sharing our faith are to us bigger things in the Christian life. Yet the Lord has put every verse in the Scriptures for our encouragement and exhortation, that we take heed to these things. We should understand that the Lord provides direction and help to lead us in every area of life. We should not consider only some of the Lord’s commands and view the others as a choice. Everything in the Christian life is to be guided and filtered through the Holy Scriptures and God’s leading by the Holy Spirit. Read more
