“Should women wear head coverings?” is a hugely significant question. It involves, among other things, the great doctrine of headship, the inspiration of Scripture, the distinction between the genders of male and female, and local church order. In this helpful message, David Gilliland sets out to answer what headship is, why women should wear head coverings, and what the head covering symbolises. In the process he answers questions like “Why does Paul seem to contradict himself between 1 Cor 11:5 and 14:34?” “Does the Bible teach that a man and woman’s glory needs to be covered?” “Does the head covering apply at home?” “Is the head covering just a cultural and/or conscience issue?” “Is a woman’s hair really the only covering she needs?” This message will repay careful listening. Reading: 1 Cor 11:1-16 (Preached in Ballymena 29th Oct 1995).
