Another short discussion Christians not covering

"Head Coverings"

Does Paul teach in 1 Cor. 11:3-16 that women must wear a head covering when they are “praying in worship” or not? Please prove by sound exegesis.

For those who have studied this issue before, there's nothing new here. For those who haven't, the discussion shows a few simplified descriptions of different interpretations of 1 Corinthians 11:2-16, using "exegesis" and "hermeneutics". If you like that sort of thing.


For a similar discussion, but in female, less pedantic, and with censored comments, check "Keeping the Home", scroll down to: Monday, December 15, 2008
Are Christian Women to Cover Their Heads?

She has 41 comments there, including her own responses.

EDIT: This blogger has posted again on this subject, in a "part 2" at this address.

I found this article through an article at "
Visits to Candyland: Head Covering" - a Catholic blogger who disagrees with this writer.

The arguments are always the same but who has open mind and wish to hear God and obey Him, that person will find the truth... hair is not the headcovering, piece of cloth is covering... only discussion is full time or part time... I wear it part time but I don't see anything bad when sister wear it full time... she's trying to please God...

I appreciate your comments here, again, Natasa - "she's trying to please God." So important.

If only women would just TRY IT, it's a blessing on your head!!

The "show this by sound exegesis" argument is a way to try to explain away a clear Biblical command by turning it into an academic excercise. I happen to enjoy good Biblical exegesis myself, but my view is that when faced with a clear command, the exegetical burden of proof falls on those who say that headcoverig is NOT normative.
