Question: Should a Woman Wear a Covering on Her Head in Church? Answer: Some churches require women to wear veils or hats in church. They claim I Corinthians 11:1-16 as supposed scriptural proof. They quote verse 6 specifically, "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." Other churches use this same scripture as support for their doctrine that women should never cut their hair. Modernists contend that whatever Paul taught the Corinthian Church is not for us today anyway - and they proceed to do as they please. What is the truth? Some contend Paul required women to wear veils because it was the custom of the day for women to wear veils in public places of worship. This is NOT true! Let's get our facts straight.
