This passage in Corinthians clearly teaches of headship, where God is the head of Christ and Christ is the head of man and man is the head of woman. Though Biblical submission is right, women are not inferior spiritually but are one in Christ. Yet they must choose to submit and humble themselves, just as Christ humbled himself before the Father.
God’s government and way of order is done in such a way, where each member must do his or her part. When women or men choose not to fulfill and walk in God’s ways for the Church, disorder and every evil practice ensues. The importance of head covering is not for an outward showing but it is a spiritual reality proclaimed to the principalities and powers. When head covering is practiced, it proclaims God’s order and way to all of creation, including the angels (1 Peter 1:12).
