Can I please just ask the question, with all of the other problems in our world, is this really an issue worth exercising any of our efforts over? Some people in other parts of the world can’t think about this kind of stuff because they’re lucky just to have clothes on their back and food on their table. If they have a table. Please people, not only is this a waste of time, it just makes Christians look more and more unnecessarily ridiculous to those outside of the church.

Vince, head covering is absolutely essential and not to be over looked or turned into something trifle. Your reason for not covering makes no sense at all. Placing a covering on my head does not take anything away from people in other parts of the world and only adds to my faith walk. Who are we to decide what others can or cannot think about? Also, many of the women in those other countries do already cover so apparently it is not an issue for them to do so.

If it’s ‘absolutely essential’, why then did the Catholic Church not institute the requirement until 1917? And why did Paul not mention it elsewhere, much like his statement that there is no male nor female in Christ Jesus? How does covering add to your faith walk? Do you have a closer relationship to God because of what you wear on your head? If so, you are relying on what you do, not what is in your heart, to determine your righteousness with God, and on the slippery slope to considering yourself justified by works.

Hi @disqus_8lozdknsCm:disqus, thanks for the question.

This movement is not in competition with any other. We’re an “information” movement, so we don’t stop anyone from giving, serving and doing those things which are of a higher importance than covering.

Having said that, this movement finds it’s basis in Scripture and is an imperative to New Testament churches. So we can’t ignore it, neglect it or worry about how those outside the church see us in this matter.

It was imperative to the Corinthians as it was their culture in those days. So is it still relevant in today’s society?

It ought not to just be advocated during corporate worship. Any time a woman prays or speaks a word of prophesy she should be covered. That in mind, why not cover all the time so that in moments of praying through out the day, we are not brining dishonor to our head but instead we are honoring the authority of God and our husbands and sending a message out to the spiritual realm as well?

Ok, I just re-read once again, the scripture to which you are referring to. So, here’s my question, does this not refer to a woman having long hair over short or shaven hair as was the custom in those days when a woman was married to have her hair shortened or shaved off completely?

I have to say, that the fact that this video is narrated by a man makes it less credible to me. If I decide to cover it will be to deepen my personal relationship with God, not to allow a random patriarchal figure authority over me. I sternly advise to have a female narrator on all topics that effect only women and do so in such a drastic and personal way.

Yeah, I agree. I mean, I didn’t actually care in this video. However, when I was feeling convicted to head cover I did online research, especially on Youtube, and any video done by a man I didn’t watch as I figured since the issue didn’t apply to them, they weren’t the ones I wanted to hear from… instead I wanted to hear from a woman who was already doing what the Lord was stirring in my heart.

The problem I have with this is that head covering is NOT a commandment. I am a woman who covers and I believe in covering, not just in church but all the time. However, it is not a commandment. It is a tradition, a beautiful one but a tradition all the same.

Hey @simplydazee:disqus, thanks for the feedback. I guess it would be helpful if we defined the words “command” and “tradition” first. They mean different things to different people. By command we mean “an Scriptural imperative (meaning, we’re told to do something)”. By tradition (if used in contrast to a command) we’d define it as “an invention of man that can be freely disregarded.”

We explained why we believe it’s a command rather than Christian liberty here: http://www.headcoveringmovement.com/articles/is-head-covering-christian-liberty-or-a-command

That’s all well and good, but to say something is a command when it is not is false teaching.

If Paul commanded women to cover then he is in violation of the scriptures. There is no imperative, command or whatever word you want to use in the Torah to cover,The Torah was the only scriptures Paul had at the time and would have followed that. If he added to it he would be in sin because there is a command not to add to or take away from the scriptures. Deuteronomy 4:2
