The Case For Christian Head Covering: A Guided Study of 1 Corinthians 11
Welcome to the Head Covering Movement‘s guided study of 1 Corinthians 11. We’d like to walk you through this passage of Scripture to show you how the Bible teaches that head covering is to be practiced in all churches, no matter the time or culture. We believe that when men worship with a bare head, and women with a covered head that it symbolizes to both angels and the gathered church, how God has created men and women differently.
For too long this doctrine has been neglected and stereotyped. Unfair associations with cults, legalism, unsophisticated theology & frumpiness have turned many people off. We want to move past these stereotypes and into Scripture because contrary to those views, head covering is biblical, beautiful and relevant.
