Women’s Veil

The Women’s Veil in Worship

Understanding and accepting unfamiliar truths within God’s law can be difficult. When we’ve been accustomed to a particular way of thinking or a certain custom for a long time, adjusting to something new can be challenging. However, those who persevere through such obstacles and obediently follow God’s guidance will always receive blessings in the end.

“... it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.”

“He replied, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.’”

From the Old Testament into the New Testament, God has given various regulations for worship. In the past, those regulations were complex rituals that required animal sacrifices and hard labor. However, today, Christ has asked us to simply worship in spirit and truth, following His example (Jn 4:23).

Among the teachings of the early church, there is the practice of wearing veils during worship. While not widely known, Apostle Paul who followed in Christ’s footsteps, shared this essential law of God with the members at that time.

“Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ ... The head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. A man dishonors his head if he covers his head while praying or prophesying. But a woman dishonors her head if she prays or prophesies without a covering on her head …”

1 Corinthians 11:1–5 (NLT)

This teaching highlights the importance of a woman covering her head during worship as an act of bringing glory to God while a man brings glory to God by leaving his head uncovered.
