Among the Lord’s people there is much debate, and, in some cases, much discord as to whether or not a Christian woman should wear a hat or a head covering in public worship. This contention centers around I Corinthians 11:1-16. Some say the covering commanded in these verses for a woman is her hair which is given her for a covering. Others say Paul wrote about an Oriental custom which is in no way binding on our modern-day churches. Still others, like myself, are convinced that the Scriptures teach that a woman should wear a head covering to the services of the church.
Any discussion of this subject must be greatly concerned with the scriptures in question. The author examines these verses in order to discover their correct interpretation. He no axe to grind with those who do not see eye to eye with him on this topic. He ask only the right to be heard as to my position. His writing is not designed to convert all the great theologians, or to silence all critics. His design is to instruct those who honestly and sincerely desire to know what the Bible teaches on this subject that they may obey their Lord.
