An Objection To Head Covering

Q. 1 COR.11 seems to put women under the law much as circumcision did for men. Also, using the “2 witness” method, this cannot be supported elsewhere in scripture. Why do you teach that this has never been revoked?

A. I teach that this has never been revoked because it never has been. Paul taught it to the Church in Corinth 20 years after the cross, during the Age of Grace, to be done out of respect for one’s spouse as well as for the unseen visitors who join the congregation for worship. Therefore, comparing it to circumcision seems more than a little extreme. Also, the so-called 2 witness method is not appropriate for deciding whether to accept or reject something one of God’s Apostles has taught while under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
