Head Coverings and Christianity

Orthodox Christian Theology

People have a very bad tendency of ignoring obvious teachings in Scripture, because they don’t mix well with the social norms of the day.

The issue of head coverings is one of these issues. The first time I ever read 1 Corinthians 11 I understood what it meant, because it was so simple. After getting married, my wife started wearing a hat to church, because it suffices as a head covering.

Both my wife and I have independently come to the conclusion that without doing injustice to the clear words of the text, that head coverings are something that God wants women to wear and men not to wear during worship.

The passage is simple enough (1 Cor 11:2-15) and I will discuss it section by section:

Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you.
