    • Acts of worship are missing

What was the situation at Corinth?
  • Veil – customary sign of a woman in subjection
    • Judge in yourselves – v. 13
    • Is it proper (comely – KJV)? – v. 13
    • Does not nature teach you – v. 14
    • We (the church) have no such custom – v. 16
  • Same with other customs, cultures, times
    • Foot washing (John 13)
    • Holy Kiss (Romans 16:16)
what was the situation at corinth1
What was the situation at Corinth?
  • A woman without a veil = not in subjection (not married or engaged)
  • A woman with shaved head = convicted of prostitution
  • The point was not that they should PUT ON a veil to pray or prophesy
  • The point was the should NOT REMOVE the veil

What about today, in USA?
  • Customs change with nations, times, cultures
    • Man with a wedding band = married
    • Years ago – red light district = prostitution
    • Years ago – men removed hat in buildings
    • Foot washing – travel methods changed

Do these rules apply today?
  • YES if the conditions are met
    • Hangs down, covers the face
    • Has the same significance in society
  • Long hair – is a woman's glory v. 15
    • This is a covering
    • Given by God
  • In absence of a custom – a woman's hair is her covering.

Is the text dealing with custom?
  • YES – Custom has always had symbols of subjection
  • FACTS:
    • Woman has always been in subjection to man
    • Method of showing it has changed
    • Principle remains, when customs change

Is the text dealing with custom?
  • Humility is required – foot washing is not
  • Friendliness is required – holy kiss is not
  • Subjection is required – veil is not
summary
SUMMARY
  • What I have admitted:
    • There are 2 coverings – veil and hair
    • In Corinth, the veil was a sign of subjection
  • What I have objected to:
    • Binding a custom from another society
    • Substitution or changing of the text
    • Reading into the text what is not there
summary1
SUMMARY
  • What I have not said:
    • That headship is a matter of custom
    • That roles are a matter of custom
    • Ruled out the possibility that 1 Corinthians 11 may be applicable today
    • It is wrong for a woman to wear a hat or veil to worship today
