Cherechy: 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

vicoson: Read 1 cor. 11:4-11

4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.

Joagbaje: 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.

May ur days be long for such a good explanation

@op, men remove their cap as a sign of respect n nothing more. But on a more sincere note, do u feel comfortable wearing a cap inside a room, I am sure u don't, so I suggest u leave things u don't understand to rest.

DaWhiz: 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

Jus wat I wanted 2 say. It is just a sign of reverence. Some men remove dia caps wen dey r about 2 speak wit elders! It shows reverence and respect, more lyk culture mixed with religion.

Mr_Anony:
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.

Well, verse 16 actually shows that it doesn't count, whether you cover your head or not God is more interested in your human spirit.

16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

Emphasis on the bolded part.

Thank you!

In my church, Latter Rain Assembly, you are permitted to either wear your cap. BTW, If men are to remove their caps what happens to Bishops and the Pope.

I understand it to be that if a woman cannot cover hair, then she should shave it, if she is ashamed to have her hair shaved, then she should cover it. But then its just for married women. That's my own understanding sha.

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).

the bishops (including the pope) of the catholic church do remove their caps during mass. For most part of the mass, he puts on his skull cap and removes his mitre. But when it comes to the prayer of consecration, which the bread and wine are to become the body and blood of christ, he removes the skull cap leaving nothing on his head.

It's following a biblical tradition.
In the Christian New Testament, in Paul's letter to the Corinthians (1 Corinthians chapter 11) it says:

"Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonours his head. And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonours her head—it is just as though her head were shaved. If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God".

Paul's views often follow Judaic law very closely -- not surprising, since he grew up as a Pharisee. Certainly, the instruction for women to cover their hair turns up in Genesis.
