Is headcovering a "work" that some Christian women do because we think it is an act we must do in order to be saved? No. Seriously, I don't think there is a woman among us who believes that Jesus said, "He who believes and is baptized... and she who covers her head... shall be saved." So what about all these "works" that some Christians do? Are they trying to earn their salvation?
Maybe they are doing these good works because of their salvation. As a result of, that is. Because of their faith. Because they are living the life of a follower of Christ and his commands (which are not burdensome). Please read the following blog entry by a lady who covers her head because of her faith (as well as other of her articles on this subject).
