 Re: Frank

Good question brother. I honestly don't know. But you did prompt me to start another thread. Not to compete against this thread. But to address the WHY of the head covering in 1st Corinthians 11. So much of the discussion has focused on whether the sister SHOULD or SHOULD NOT wear the head covering. But very little discussion if any as focused as to the WHY of the head covering.

Bottom line. According to 1st Corinthians 11:5 & 11:13 it seems that a sister wears the head covering to show that she is under Authority as she is praying or prophesying. This seems to be the context of 1st Corinthians 11 as to why the sisters wear the head covering in the assembly. So a question emerges. Those who hold that a sister must wear the head covering. Do those assemblies allow that same sister who has the head covering to pray or prophesy. If she is required to wear the head covering but it's not allowed to pray or prophesy. Then in my opinion the issue of the head covering is moot.

I hope the threat I opened up will generate some good discussion without degenerating into a heated argument.

But if we are going to discuss this issue and we have to get to the WHY of the head covering. And that is a sister to pray or prophesy under authority.

My guess is there are many conservative fellowships that require sisters to wear the head covering. But they do not believe that a sister should prophecy in the church. Probably because they do not believe that prophecy is in operation today. And that is another whole can of worms.

Anyway seeing what response I get on the other thread.

 Re:

Sherri-

I don't understand. You seem to be convicted about wearing a head covering based on your reading of the word.

If you want further discussion you are seemingly looking for reasons not to wear a head covering.

Why not just follow your initial conviction?

This topic has been been discussed for pages and pages and pages.

At the end of the day (I hate that expression but oh well) those who believed it was a cultural practice in Paul's day felt the same way, and those who felt it was a command for all time felt the same way.

You have to follow your conviction on this. I suppose they still sell scarves.

Brother you can go back and peruse the threads. The topic has been covered extensively. Now whether it was discussed extensively is another qyestion. I might say it has been argued extensively and quite heatedly. And to be candid and honest I have been one of the ones that has argued the issue. Much to my shame and embarrassment.

Perhaps a question I might ask is this a salvation issue. I only ask in light of the needless arguments that may ensue from this topic.



Brother,

Thank you for humbling yourself. I would say it would be best to probably leave most of the discussing of this even to the sisters as they are the ones that need to follow the leading of the Holy Spirt in this area.

 Re:

Sherri-

I apologize for coming across as venemous or sarcastic.

The reason I seem to be this way is that this is one of those topics in which nothing is ever resolved.

Let me ask you this: Why do you believe there has been some heated debate on this topic? Is it because one side is a group of liberal sinners who are rebelling against God and refuse to be corrected, or is it because there are truly legitimate arguments on both sides?

That is why I feel that if you feel convicted about wearing a head covering, and someone asks you why, all you need say is that you are being obedient to the HS. you do not even need to mention 1 Cor. 11. It is nobody else's business.

Brother,

I believe she would have to mention the Scripture for that would be the reason for her obeying the Lord in this. I believe sisters should feel free to come to obedience in this area. I personally "never" look down on a sister who does not cover her head.

I believe brothers should leave sisters to obey the Lord in this area, it seems strange that there is great opposition from brethren on this issue as 99% of sisters in North America already "do not" wear head coverings in evangelical assemblies.

I believe there should be freedom for especially new sisters who register on the forums to ask questions and have others help her and at the very least "encourage" her to consider the scripture of 1 Corinthians 11 more deeply.

 Re: Question concerning "Head Coverings" for women


Sherri,

True circumcision is not something visible in the flesh (or on the head). On the contrary, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart—by the Spirit, not the letter. That man’s praise is not from men but from God. (Romans 2:28b-29)

I speak from a non-headcovering viewpoint and I believe Christians need to take the Bible as a whole, living Word. Not just taking those particular verses and make a doctrine out of it.

Through all the threads on headcoverings in past, I've to the conclusion that a woman "needs" to wear a headcovering to "prove" her submission to her man, her God and her church.

If "YOU" feel led to wear a headcovering, I will support you, sister and provide no judgment. I have asked God about the headcovering for myself and I have walked away without any guilt on the subject.

And Apostle Paul concluded the supposed headcovering verses with, But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. 1 Cor 11:16

I hope this helps and is not contentious.
God bless,
Lisa
