Head Coverings for Women

Recently there is a new fad that has started among many women who are supposedly members of the assembly our Savior Yahushua. Yahuwah certainly never gave a law like that. This fad is to cover their heads in some fashion with a cloth of some sort. Where they get this idea from in scripture I am not sure, but I suspect that it is from the following passage as it is the only passage that deals with the subject.

The only problem with using this passage as the “rule” for women to cover their heads is that they have not included the entire passage. The following verse completes that passage.

As you can easily see, the head coverings, long hair on a man, etc., and their use or non–use was strictly a local custom among those of Korinthios and was not a binding rule of the assembly of Yahuwah.

It was a custom among the Ibriy virgin girls and widows of the period before Yahushua to sometimes wear a veil in the presence of adult males, but to my knowledge they were never forced to wear a head covering such is seen on islamic women. That practice belongs to islam and needs to stay there.

I would guess that these ladies have also been taught that they must keep the “feasts” of Yahuwah and eat only from the "clean" foods, and obey other things of the Law of Mosheh. To those ladies I say study scripture for yourself and quit listening to the men that are telling you these things. They are trampling the blood of Yahushua underfoot and are leading you astray. We are under the Perfect Law of liberty and not the restrictive Law of Mosheh. The evidence for that is rife in scripture and I have other articles and such on my web page that go into detailed explanations about the subject.

To the men that are teaching this error I say STOP! Learn the truth of scripture for yourself and then teach it correctly. Otherwise the lake of fire awaits not only the women that are following this false doctrine but also those that are teaching it as you will be held doubly accountable for teaching falsehood.
