女圣徒在礼拜时要戴头巾,这是上帝的教导。使徒保罗通过阐释上帝创造中的圣意,向因头巾的规例引起纷争的哥林多教会的圣徒们强调了女圣徒在礼拜时应当蒙头。

哥林多前书 11:1 你们该效法我,像我效法基督一样。

哥林多前书 11:4-5  凡男人祷告或是讲道,若蒙着头,就羞辱自己的头。凡女人祷告或是讲道,若不蒙着头就羞辱自己的头,因为这就如同剃了头发一样。

圣经教导我们,男人在礼拜或祷告时不可蒙着头,否则就羞辱上帝。反之,若女人在礼拜或祷告时不蒙头,就羞辱上帝。

哥林多前书 11:3 我愿意你们知道,基督是各人的头;男人是女人的头;上帝是基督的头。

上帝在太初造人时,先造了亚当,之后造了夏娃作为帮助他的配偶。上帝没有像造亚当一样用尘土创造了夏娃,而是用了亚当的肋骨。使徒保罗阐释了上帝这样创造的旨意,以此强调“由男人而出的女人,应当在头上有服权柄的记号。”这是上帝制定的秩序,但并非意味着男女有尊卑之分(林前 11:11-12)。按照上帝的旨意,女人从男人而出,男人也从女人而出。

哥林多前书 11:5-6 凡女人祷告或是讲道,若不蒙着头,就羞辱自己的头,因为这就如同剃了头发一样。女人若不蒙着头,就该剪了头发;女人若以剪发、剃发为羞愧,就该蒙着头。

根据圣经的教导,女圣徒应在礼拜时戴头巾。这并不表示短发的女人就不需要戴头巾。事实上圣经解释,上帝通过人的天性向我们强调了女人戴头巾的重要性。人的天性中觉得女人留长发美丽。这是上帝启发我们女人在上帝面前蒙头显得美丽的无声的教导。因此第15节记录说,“因为这头发是给她作盖头的”。

 

如果戴不戴头巾和头发的长度有关,上帝就会明确指示长度的标准。使徒保罗藉着上述话语清楚地阐明了女人戴头巾的规例,并坚定表示女人戴头巾是上帝的教会的规矩。

哥林多前书 11:13-16 你们自己审察,女人祷告 上帝,不蒙着头是合宜的吗? ……若有人想要辩驳,我们却没有这样的规矩,上帝的众教会也是没有的

圣经见证女人戴头巾的规例是上帝确实的教导。当今,只有上帝的教会世界福音宣教协会跟随耶稣在两千年前赐予基督徒的教导。

 

It is God’s teaching that the women are to wear veils during worship services. The Apostle Paul emphasized again that women ought to wear veils, explaining the providence of God’s creation to the members of the Church of God in Corinth because of the controversies that arose over the veil regulation.

1 Corinthians 11:1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ

1 Corinthians 11:4-5  Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head

The Bible teaches us that men should not cover their heads while praying or during worship services. If they do, they come to dishonour God. On the other hand, if women do not cover their heads while praying or during worship services, they come to dishonour God.

1 Corinthians 11:3  But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

In the beginning when God created mankind, God created Adam, followed by Eve as his helper. God created Eve from the rib of Adam, rather than from the dust, as he did for Adam.Therefore Apostle Paul emphasized on God’s providence, that women came from men so they should cover their heads as a sign representing God’s authority. This was the order set up by God. However, it does not mean God value men more than women or vice-versa (1 Corinthians 11:11-12). Man cannot exist without woman and neither can woman exist without man.

1 Corinthians 11:5-6  But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved.  For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.

Women's veil

The Bible teaches that women must wear veils on their heads during services. This does not infer that women with short hair do not need to wear veils. Rather, the Bible emphasizes on the importance of women wearing veils through God-given nature. God has given people the eyes to regard women’s long hair as beautiful. It is tacit teaching that covering a woman’s head looks beautiful to God. We can see this in verse 15, “For long hair is given to her as a covering”.

If wearing a veil was a matter of subject to the length of hair, God must have given a clear standard of hair length. Apostle Paul wrote these words to teach God’s regulation about the women’s veil very clearly. He firmly added that the Church of God practices the regulation of veils for women.

1 Corinthians 11:13-16  Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? … If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God.

The regulation of the veil for women is a sure teaching of God, as seen through the Bible. Today, it is only the World Mission Society Church of God that follows the teachings of Christ which He gave to the Christians 2,000 years ago.
