The Headcovering Movement: Why Headcovering is not about Modesty

The Headcovering Movement: Why Headcovering is not about Modesty

1 Corinthians 11 is the only chapter in the Bible that explains the practice of Christian head covering. Paul appeals in this chapter to the creation order, nature’s witness and angels as reasons to wear one. He tells us that this is a part of official apostolic teaching (v. 2) and is the practice of all churches, everywhere. In these 15 verses on head covering, modesty is never mentioned once. Nothing in this passage even hints at that. Rather Paul teaches that this is a symbol which reflects the created differences between men and women.
