Why Christian Women Should Wear Head Coverings – A Three Part Podcast

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 11:5 “But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.”

For 2000 years of church history women covered their heads when they came to worship in the assembled church in obedience to this command from God’s Word. And then in the 20th century, the church bowed to the demands of feminism and allowed women to stop obeying this ordinance.

In this Three-Part series, I examine 1 Corinthians 11:1-16 and show why Christian women should wear head coverings, what the head covering is, and when they should wear head coverings.
This is part one of this series on head coverings. The next two parts deal with what the head covering is and when it is to be worn as well. I also address what the Bible is referring to when it speaks to women prophesying in the last part of this series.

I originally release this series, based on my article of the same name, back in 2019. I have just done a completely new recording of the final part of this series with added discussion on this topic.

Also I have just started adding some of my content to Rumble.com and I will be adding more in the future. You can listen to the first part of this series free over on my new Rumble.com account here.

To listen to the last two parts of the series (including the brand new version of part 3) you can go to BGRLearning.com and subscribe. There in addition to this series, you will find hundreds of podcasts on the topics of gender roles, courtship, marriage and sex from a Biblical perspective.

  1. An excellent video! If only we could find a way to break christian women away from their addiction to feminism-lite so that they could receive the full bounty of God’s gifts for them, would they only be obedient. What’s really sad is that its right there in black and white for both men and women to see, but husbandly authority is willfully brushed aside as a side note or an oddity for the day and age in which the Word was written. Yet women are told that their obedience is greatly considered in 1 Peter 3, which is, of course, disregarded in the modern age. Obedience is seen as a great weakness rather than a strength.

  2. Question, what of the cultures that haven’t worn head coverings, as a religious ordinance, for centuries. For example, when I lived in Italy, wearing ahead covering anywhere is viewed as a sign of poverty or seniority. As a result, they disregarded any headwear unless working in a farming setting or to display one’s elderly age.

    My question comes with the idea that, in order to evangelize people, most will not accept a cultural change even if it is somehow viewed as Biblical.

  3. VeryCuriousReader,

    While we should do all we can when engaging in missions not to purposefully offend cultural traditions, the Bible trumps all cultural traditions. And God’s Word is crystal clear in this passage that women are to cover their heads for prayer and prophesy.
