Why Do Christian Men Remove Their Cap In Church? by webfocus(m): 2:55pm On Dec 02, 2012
I have always been noticing this.

Is there any sin attached to this because I see men not wearing caps into church and sometimes even removing them during prayers

It is church tradition. Read 1 Cor 11:4-16

Excerpts:



4. A man dishonors his head if he covers his head while praying or prophesying.......


........16. But if anyone wants to argue about this, I simply say that we have no other custom than this, and neither do God’s other churches.

I don't think he issue of wearing cap or removing cap is relevant in christian faith. Married women. Covered their faces in public in bible days as a form of respect and submission to their husband while men also covered their head as a form of respect and submission to God. But now in christ ,the covering of the face of the man is no longer required . That's the principle behind cap removal . It's to show that man no longer inferior before God. The head covering is no longer requiresd but this is different from cap wearing. Most people do it as a form of respect without understanding the principle behind it.

Lemme help this thread by quoting from a good translation before Image123 starts to accuse of using my knowledge and understanding to bully folks in here,

1 Corinthians 11

Amplified Bible (AMP)

11 Pattern yourselves after me [follow my example], as I imitate and follow Christ (the Messiah).

2 I appreciate and commend you because you always remember me in everything and keep firm possession of the traditions (the substance of my instructions), just as I have [verbally] passed them on to you.

3 But I want you to know and realize that Christ is the Head of every man, the head of a woman is her husband, and the Head of Christ is God.

4 Any man who prays or prophesies (teaches, refutes, reproves, admonishes, and comforts) with his head covered dishonors his Head (Christ).

5 And any woman who [publicly] prays or prophesies (teaches, refutes, reproves, admonishes, or comforts) when she is bareheaded dishonors her head (her husband); it is the same as [if her head were] shaved.

6 For if a woman will not wear [a head] covering, then she should cut off her hair too; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her head shorn or shaven, let her cover [her head].

7 For a man ought not to wear anything on his head [in church], for he is the image and [reflected] glory of God [[a]his function of government reflects the majesty of the divine Rule]; but woman is [the expression of] man’s glory (majesty, preeminence).

8 For man was not [created] from woman, but woman from man;

9 Neither was man created on account of or for the benefit of woman, but woman on account of and for the benefit of man.

10 Therefore she should [be subject to his authority and should] have a covering on her head [as a token, a symbol, of her submission to authority, [c]that she may show reverence as do] the angels [and not displease them].

11 Nevertheless, in [the plan of] the Lord and from His point of view woman is not apart from and independent of man, nor is man aloof from and independent of woman;

12 For as woman was made from man, even so man is also born of woman; and all [whether male or female go forth] from God [as their Author].

13 Consider for yourselves; is it proper and decent [according to your customs] for a woman to offer prayer to God [publicly] with her head uncovered?

14 Does not [d]the native sense of propriety (experience, common sense, reason) itself teach you that for a man to wear long hair is a dishonor [humiliating and degrading] to him,

15 But if a woman has long hair, it is her ornament and glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering.

16 Now if anyone is disposed to be argumentative and contentious about this, we hold to and recognize no other custom [in worship] than this, nor do the churches of God generally.

17 But in what I instruct [you] next I do not commend [you], because when you meet together, it is not for the better but for the worse.

18 For in the first place, when you assemble as a congregation, I hear that there are cliques (divisions and factions) among you; and I in part believe it,

19 For doubtless there have to be factions or parties among you in order that they who are genuine and of approved fitness may become evident and plainly recognized among you.

20 So when you gather for your meetings, it is not the supper instituted by the Lord that you eat, [b]I Corinthians 11:1-20

Dang! I remember this video! This guy got me laughing and rolling hard on the floor. You need to see his dancing steps.
The dude is a good stepper. Am sure pastor must be proud to have an entertainer in his ministry. But all this dancing
Just to go and drop N5 (5 naira) for an Offering. grin

From what I understand from that chapter, only women who have shaved their heads should cover it while praying, for it is shameful. It says that the glory of a woman is in her hair and it has been given to her as a covering.
That's d part I'm interested in, sorry for diverting the thread. So pentecostals that go to church with their hair uncovered are actually right. I cover my hair to church because of the doctrine of my church and not because its biblical. Shikena

I don't believe its in the Bible or its a sin. Truth is, its a sign of respect in the Yoruba culture (and I think in some other Naija cultures too) to remove your cap when you're relating to an elder. So basically, people do it to show their respect to Baba God. But if you sincerely don't believe in it, I don't think its a big deal. IMHO
