  • 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.”

  • Courage to cover (Becoming A Titus 2 Wife)
    “Once again, I will be the only one that I know of in our church of over 900 that covers there…If I can’t overcome my fear to cover in public worship when God asks me to, then how can He trust me to obey Him in bigger things?
  • Headcovering in Public Worship (Free Presbyterian Church)
    “In the Free Presbyterian Church we believe we should obey God rather than men–or women! That is why we follow the only custom on this matter that God ever established in His church–that men should not engage in public worship with their heads covered, and women should not do so without their heads being covered. To us this is no legal bondage but a joyful gospel testimony to the sole glory of Christ in His church.”
  • Should Christian women wear a headcovering at church? (The Free Press)
    “It would seem strange that Paul goes to these lengths to command the women to wear the headcovering if the external practice is of no importance whatsoever.”
  • Why Christian Women Cover Their Hair. (BibleStudy.net)
    “We have therefore seen a nearly universal practice, women covering their hair in churches, completely effaced over the course of, say, the past 50 years or so. In fact, the practice has gone so unpracticed, that when my own wife wore a covering over her hair in the church we attended almost 30 years ago, she was the ONLY woman in the church so doing.”

  • Head Covering in Modern Times. Is This A Necessary Practice? (Children Are A Blessing)
    “Months ago I began subscribing to a site called The Head Covering Movement. (Yes, my husband has teased me for this, ha!) Anyhow, while reading their articles and blog posts I began to piece a few clues together that has made this passage become clear to me.”
  • Sunday Brunch – Should Women Cover Their Heads? (Cecelia’s Christian Fiction Blog)
    Fiction author Cecelia Dowdy brings up the topic and turns it over to you for your thoughts: “Please leave a comment about this thought-provoking subject!”
  • Head-Covering: Is It Still Relevant? (Regeneration, Repentance and Reformation)
    “While the sign upon her head, and it must always be that upon the head if any, may change according to the day, the necessity of it remains. The church has held to this position for nearly two millennia until the sexual revolution and women’s liberation movement; this is an historical fact that cannot be easily dismissed by revisionism.”
  • So…head covering…yes or no? (Blessed Hope Farm)
    “Now, after my long rant in that previous post some of you are still wondering: What did she decide about the head covering and what does it all mean?! I know you are waiting with bated breath so I’ll tell you already.”

  • What we believe on head covering in church. (Three Girls and their Hobbies)
    “We recently came across this great movie. Please watch this, and let us know what you think…We are not saying that if you don’t wear head covering in church you aren’t a Christian, but that this is a sign of submission to your father and eventually your husband, and through them, God.”
  • My Experience With Head Coverings (Penned by Katrina)
    “My boyfriend at the time asked me why I wouldn’t wear [a head covering], and the only reason I could think of was because I thought it was weird.  That bothered me. I didn’t want to be unwilling to obey Scripture just because it was asking me to do something weird….I am not wearing a head covering now, and am not sure that is what God is asking me, but I do think that attitude changes everything.”
  • More-Less for 2014 and my childish impatience that changed my life (Blessed Hope Farm)
    “The Lord has recently laid upon my heart a passage of Scripture that I can no longer ignore or excuse away. If you are a Christian and have read the first book of Corinthians, you may recall 1 Corinthians 11: 3-16. Ouch, yep, THAT verse. To be honest, I always skipped over that verse because I, and my church leaders, always focused on verse fifteen.”
  • Thought for Thursday (Sussex Gospel Hall)
    “As the woman wears her head covering, she displays to the angels the beauty of God’s order: the woman in subjection to the man,and the man in subjection to Christ. Angels can learn much from you and me. And they will learn, if we follow God’s pattern of authority.”

  • 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.”
