The purpose of the "Headcovering Group," is stated is as follows:
"This group was created for women to come and discuss the subject of head covering together. Come and share with other women and let’s explore together what scripture has to say."
The statement above, to
"come and discuss the subject.......explore together what scripture has to say"
means to investigate, to find scriptural support for our position, whether pro or con.
If the statement was, "we wish to investiage how we are going to cover our heads" it would have definately limited this group to those who were only in favor of the headcoverings.
To be as Bereans, I hope you all agree, we must "search the scriptures" and let them speak to us, let them provide our doctrines, and that we not abide by or teach any commandments, doctrines of traditions of men (as though they were of YHWH).
Traditions are ok, as long as we understand that they are traditions and why we keep them, and that others are under no compulsion to follow us in our practices.
We are also told in 1Th 5:21 to:
" Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."
We are also told in 2 Ti 3:16
"All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness"
We should never get too old or too complacent or too content with our current state of knowledge, to refuse to prove or disprove/revisit our cherished traditions.
We also should always be ready to give an answer regarding any part of our faith to those who ask, especially those newly coming into the faith.
