A Woman With Long Hair Does Not Need to Cover Her Head?-WMSCOG

wmscogSome people insist that women do not need to cover their heads because the Bible says, “Long hair is given to women as a covering.”

“but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering”?(1 Co 11:15).

If long hair was given to women as a covering, what about the women who have short hair? Do they have to cover their heads in worship? If women with long hair do not need to cover their heads, why did Apostle Paul say, “If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off”?

  • “If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head”?(1 Co 11:6).

If a woman with long hair does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off because it is written, “If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off.” And if she has her hair cut, she comes to have short hair and eventually has to cover her head. Therefore, the words, “Long hair is given to her as a covering,” do not mean that those women with long hair do not need to cover their heads.

Let us find out a more precise meaning of this by comparing it with another translation of the Bible.

1 Co 11:13-16 Contemporary English Version

  • Ask yourselves if it is proper for a woman to pray without something on her head. Isn’t it unnatural and disgraceful for men to have long hair? But long hair is a beautiful way for a woman to cover her head. This is how things are done in all of God’s churches, and that’s why none of you should argue about what I have said.

1 Co 11:13-16 Today’s English Version

  • Judge for yourselves whether it is proper for a woman to pray to God in public worship with nothing on her head. Why, nature itself teaches you that long hair on a man is a disgrace, but on a woman it is a thing of beauty. Her long hair has been given her to serve as a covering. But if anyone wants to argue about it, all I have to say is that neither we nor the churches of God have any other custom in worship.

The words of 1 Co 11:13-16 strongly recommend that women cover their heads and men do not. The words, “Long hair was given to her as a covering,” mean that it is a woman’s original nature to cover her head with long hair, and that this original nature of women shows that women should cover their heads.

Though both Cain and Abel worshiped God, God looked with favor only on Abel’s offering. When we worship God according to God-given laws and regulations, He looks with favor on our worship and ultimately we can receive blessings. However, if we worship God, ignoring God-given laws and regulations, God will not look with favor on our worship like Cain’s offering.?The Church of God has worship services according to the laws and regulations recorded in the Bible.

    God’s every single commandment, law and teaching should not be judged on men’s thoughts, I mean men should not put more focus or emphasis on a certain teaching of God than others by their own belief and opinion, however, all teachings of God are important and precious in the same way for our salvation.

    If God says “men should not cover theirs heads in a worship or prayer, but women should, we have to follow it without misinterpreting only one verse.
    WMSCOG is the only church that keeps all the laws and regulations of the New Covenant which were restored by the Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong.

    Thanks to Elohim God, Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother who have come in the flesh!!
    Those who insist in that way are using this verse, [“but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering” (1 Co 11:15).] from ” the bible ” !!

    Then, look at this verse in the bible!!
    1Co 11:1[ Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. ]
    1Co 11:5[ And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—
    it is just as though her head were shaved. ]
    These verses are teaching that woman should cover her head!!
    We must remember this teaching, not forget.

    And, I want to ask them the standard about “long hair” !! What size on earth??
    60cm?, 50cm?, 40cm?, . . . . , 10cm?, 7cm?, . . . , 1cm?
    Could you tell me? Everyday you should check exactly the length of youe hair !!!

    Hahaha then what about women who has short hair ??

    I am really wandering whether women who have short hair cover their hair or not .
    Because according to their insistence only those who have long hair do not need to cover hair . Then if they have short hair they should cover it right ?

    But have you ever seen any church in which some of women cover their hair and some of them don’t .

    It doesn’t make sense at all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Apostle Paul said, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.” (1Cor. 11:1) and then he explained about the teaching of covering hair as a woman, Rather than arguing with our own opinions, we need to have a careful and deep look into the bible and Jesus’ teaching for us.
    Every teaching is not for giving us some burden or anything, but for allowing us the eternal life as God’s children who keep God’s commandments without adding or taking away even a single word of the bible.
    I give all thanks and honor to Elohim God! 🙂

    We should not add or omit the words of God with our own opinions or traditions.
    Let’s follow God and His teachings correctly!

    We should keep the teachings of Jesus as Apostle Paul follow the example of Jesus christ.
    The regulation of veil is a custom in all of God’s church.
    When we obey the world of God, we will receive blessing from God.

    Is it what God really wants when we add our own personal opinions to what is written in the Bible?
    Even an angel from heaven adds or takes away of what is written in the Bible, eternal condemnation would happen. (Gal. 1: 8)

    Apostle Paul wanted to teach what he was taught from Jesus, which is the teaching of Jesus.
    Then, how mere person could not follow what He said taught to us??
    God would not be happy about that. Never ever!

    In my church, women don’t cover their head.
    If this article is true, why do many churches not keep this command?

      This teaching of Christ was taught and practiced even after Christ ascended to heaven, in the apostolic age. Even centuries later, women wearing veils was considered common knowledge. During the dark ages, when all the truths of God were being changed, the regulations for worship were rewritten and the requirement for women to wear veils was omitted since it was deemed “common knowledge.” However, with this requirement of worship no longer in the churches’ written code, subsequent generations eventually forgot God’s regulation for women to cover their heads with a veil. That is why, nowadays, no church practices this command of God–only the Church of God, which was established by Second Coming Christ, Ahnsahnghong.

    Covering head as woman in worship has a very biblical meaning and even apostle Paul wanted to teach people as he was taught from Jesus. Why do we not follow Jesus and His teachings? Then, as a christian, are we following man’s teaching or God’s teaching?? Our deeds should surely please God.

    In the point of view of beauty, it’s better that women cover their heads in worship 🙂

    I could see the reason women cover their heads during worship in Catholic churches, but I see Catholic priests wearing something like a hat during worship. Is it okay? According to this article, it’s not okay.
    CONFUSING.

    This is one of the most easiest concepts to understand. It does say that long hair is a covering but it doesn’t say that it is her covering for worship. It’s comparing having long hair to having a covering during worship.

    THE WORLD IS COMFORTABLE WITH THERE TRADITIONS.

    Most people have a hatred for ideas or ways that are contrary to their own. Especially when it comes to their beliefs. But to God that is arrogance. God loves a humble heart who is ready to accept change and listen to His commands. People who are ready to change their ideas to fit God’s ways.

    It is careless to say that God does not care about simple things, but in mans eyes it maybe a simple or trivial matter but to God it is most sacred.

    so true and clear for all!
    It was very interesting that we should have veil in servcice as a woman.

    Since this is from God, it is rather weird we have some doubts about it.

    We should and add or omit what God says in the Bible.
