Covering the Web: Mar 5/14

Covering The Web

Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

  • This Is Me #10 (The Candle Underneath the Looking Glass)
    “At what point do Christians stop obeying, word for word, what the Bible says? One passage most Christians don’t follow is , 1 Cor 11:2-16, regarding head coverings for women in church. There are some churches (power to them) that do follow this tradition but most do not.”
  • Head Coverings – Two Spiritual Statements (Christian Fellowship Church – India)
    “We recognize that our understanding of head-covering is not popular in most Western cultures. Most people (and the young especially) want their Christianity to be “cool” and relevant. We are not primarily interested in this. We definitely don’t go out of our way to stand out or be different for difference sake; we simply value submission to God’s Word. And we are persuaded that the practice of head covering is prescribed in the Bible…”
  • Head Coverings and Christianity (Reformed Christian Theology)
    “People have a very bad tendency of ignoring obvious teachings in Scripture, because they don’t mix well with the social norms of the day. The issue of head coverings is one of these issues. The first time I ever read 1 Corinthians 11 I understood what it meant, because it was so simple. After getting married, my wife started wearing a hat to church, because it suffices as a head covering.”
  • Head Coverings for Sisters, Should they? (Wheatland Bible Chapel)
    “It is implied that this was a Corinthian problem and applied only to that church. However, all the teaching of this epistle is clearly directed in its introduction. It was written to the Corinthian saints “with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.” Paul is not afraid to address cultural problems in Corinth. But in this chapter there is no mention of culture.”
