Christian Head Coverings

Head Coverings:


"But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. Any man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head, but any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled dishonors her head—it is the same as if her head were shaven. For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her wear a veil.

Now for those who say that women's hair is their covering while in prayer then how does the verse stating that is a women wears no covering it is worse than if she were shorn. If it was referring to hair that verse wouldn't make any sense

 "For a man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. (For man was not made from woman, but woman from man. Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.) That is why a woman ought to have a veil on her head, because of the angels....If any one is disposed to be contentious, we recognize no other practice, nor do the churches of God." (1 Corinthians 11:3-10,16)

Amen Sister! How often have I visited churches where most, if not all, of the women present were not wearing head-coverings. This is clearly going against God's Word, or settling for a lower standard so as not to have controversy or not to offend church members. As Christians, shouldn't we want to follow God's highest standards for us, who are created in His image and likeness? Why should we settle for the lower standard so as not to offend? Should we not worry more about offending God instead, and not man?
