Question Do you -as a Christian woman -cover up during prayers ?

Do you cover up during prayers ?

Do you wear a headscarf during prayers ?

In case you don't know: You are commanded by the author of the bible to cover your head and submit during prayers.

1 Corinthians 11:5
But every woman that prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

Let's have a look on what bible experts think about this:

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary:
The woman was made subject to man, because made for his help and comfort. And she should do nothing, in Christian assemblies, which looked like a claim of being equal. She ought to have power, that is, a veil, on her head, because of the angels. Their presence should keep Christians from all that is wrong while in the worship of God.
Barnes' Notes on the Bible
With her head uncovered - That is, with the veil removed which she usually wore. It would seem from this that the women removed their veils, and wore their hair disheveled, when they pretended to be under the influence of divine inspiration. This was the case with the pagan priestesses; and in so doing, the Christian women imitated them. On this account, if on no other, Paul declares the impropriety of this conduct. It was, besides, a custom among ancient females, and one that was strictly enjoined by the traditional laws of the Jews, that a woman should not appear in public unless she were veiled.

Dishonoureth her head - Shows a lack of proper respect to man, to her husband, to her father, to the sex in general. The veil is a token of modesty and of subordinaion. It is regarded among Jews, and everywhere, as an emblem of her sense of inferiority of rank and station. It is the customary mark of her sex, and that by which she evinces her modesty and sense of subordination. To remove that, is to remove the appropriate mark of such subordination, and is a public act by which she thus shows dishonor to the man. And as it is proper that the grades and ranks of life should be recognized in a suitable manner, so it is improper that, even on pretence of religion, and of being engaged in the service of God, these marks should be laid aside.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary
dishonoureth … head—in that she acts against the divine ordinance and the modest propriety that becomes her: in putting away the veil, she puts away the badge of her subjection to man, which is her true "honor"; for through him it connects her with Christ, the head of the man. Moreover, as the head-covering was the emblem of maiden modesty before man (Ge 24:65), and conjugal chastity (Ge 20:16); so, to uncover the head indicated withdrawal from the power of the husband, whence a suspected wife had her head uncovered by the priest (Nu 5:18). Alford takes "her head" to be man, her symbolical, not her literal head; but as it is literal in the former clause, it must be so in the latter one.

This is just a quick reminder because Church members don't usually study this command nowadays.

I guess you and I are the only ones that voted thus far.

I'm actually surprised that the fool didn't capitalize the word "muslim" in his name. Makes me think he isn't Muslim and his real religion is "Internet Troll".

The poster sounds familiar. I think he was banned from another site I'm on after a couple posts. I expect that will be the results here.

I don't believe that woman is subject to man. I don't believe that man is subject to woman. Men and women are subject to no entity.

This post is not for those who believe they are subject to some entity.

Apparently, you don't know the difference between the old testament and new testament...

Unlike the Quran, the Bible isn't a list of commands; it's also a historical account where not all traditions have continued...

The Bible also details how a correct animal sacrifice should be conducted...Something only done by the fringe today...

The only Christian Church I've ever been in that required women to cover their heads when entering the sanctuary was the Catholic Church. This was many years ago when I was in elementary school, so this rule might not still be in effect. The current pope had died, and my mother decided she wanted us to go in and pray for the dead pope, which was strange because we were Methodist, not Catholic. We were stopped on the way in and since we didn't have any head covering, we were each given a Kleenex tissue to put on top of our heads, which I thought then and still do think was ridiculous!

I have since rejected religion as being man-made, which is why there are so many different ones, and I prefer spirituality, which is a personal relationship with the Divine without all the dogmatic religious trappings.

The kleenex was to protect you from the sneezing masses.
