We spend a lot of time talking about the symbol of headcovering on this site. Most of our time is focused on the symbol itself because that’s the part that’s hotly debated. Having said that, we’d be failing to do our job if we promoted a symbol and never spent time making sure that the meaning behind it was clear. In our article “Creation Order” we laid our a very brief summary of biblical gender roles which is called Complementarianism. Today I have a two-part sermon for you that greatly expands on this topic. It’s called Biblical Manhood and Womanhood by David Platt. David is an excellent teacher of the Word and in this sermon he explains (largely from Genesis 1-3) how men and women were created to function in relation to one-another.
I hope you will take the time to listen to or watch these sermons. If we want to see the symbol of headcovering restored, we need to make sure we’re all on the same page as to it’s meaning. So let’s listen and learn together…
Biblical Manhood and Womanhood – Part 1 (53 minutes)
Biblical Manhood and Womanhood – Part 2 (51 minutes)
Note: We are unfamiliar with David’s position on head covering. This sermon touches on 1 Corinthians 11, but not on the symbol.
