John Yurich USA wrote:Well the Catechism of the Catholic Church is wrong that Catholics and Muslims worship the God of the Bible. Catholics worship the God of the Bible whereas the Muslim god Allah is in reality Satan. And in answer to the survey question. Yes headcoverings are scriptural. When I get married I will make my wife wear a headcovering to church, not every weekend but 2 weekends a month.

A CUSTOM wrote:Just because a women puts a piece of cloth on her head doesn't change her into a robot of submissive obedience!
1Cor 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head *BECAUSE* of the angels.
IF the custom of wearing headcoverings or the habitual practice of wearing headcoverings is contentious among a community of believers then "we HAVE NO SUCH CUSTOM."
God doesn't want divisions in the church about such an issue! Preaching and teaching the Word and loving one another is what Jesus told us to do.
I have read all the comments and I see much hot debate .... why? "God looks on the heart" and man "looks on the outer appearance." STOP looking on the outward appearance my brothers and sisters in Christ. Just because a women puts a piece of cloth on her head doesn't change her into a robot of submissive obedience! I have found the opposite to be the case! We can't add ANYTHING to our salvation, we can't MAKE ourselves MORE righteous! We are made righteous through Christ Jesus our Lord and ONLY through Him! Praise God!
1 Corinthians 11, N.I.V. footnote
Every man who prays or prophesies with long hair dishonors his head. (verse 4) A man ought not to have long hair. (verse 7)
And every woman who prays or prophesies with no covering on her head dishonors her head--she is just like one of the "shorn women." If a woman has no covering, let her be for now with short hair, but since it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair shorn or shaved, she should grow it again. (verse 5 & 6)

As for Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox, these are the places of false doctrine and traditions equal to or above scripture. Mainline Protestants are a little harder to pin down, because not all mainline congregations are in error and there are individuals in there who are scripturally saved.
Faithful Remnant wrote:Actually John, it is necessary because it says to do it. Just because it isn't necessary to salvation doesn't mean you have the right to disregard it.
