Scripture tells us to be like the Bereans who examined Scripture daily to make sure that what they were being taught was actually what God’s Word said (Acts 17: 11). In 2 Timothy 2: 15, God commands us to “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a worker who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” This includes the question of “are head coverings biblical?”
1 Corinthians 11: 1-16 is the section of Scripture wherein God commands women to cover their heads and men to not cover theirs, when in worship. This command was followed and obeyed by nearly all churches for nigh on 2,000 years. On in the mid-1960’s, when second wave feminism was making such an impact in our homes, churches, and society, did the practice of head coverings truly start to wane.
Head coverings vary in style and the desires of the woman who is covering and her husband. Paul did not give us a command as to how to cover or what style of covering to use but only that women are to cover and men are to uncover while worshipping the Lord.
Following are sermons concerning head coverings. I’ve listened to them and for various reasons, included each one.
