Well, this is my first post on a board here, but I feel that I need some help. Around the beginning of the year, I read 1 Corinthians 11, and decided to start wearing a head covering. I started off with wearing head coverings in church. However, I still wasn’t sure what that passage meant completely, so I asked several people their opinions, including a priest. Everybody I spoke to thought that it was an interesting idea, but not required or necessary in any way. They either said that the passage had a less obvious interpretation, or that it only applied to women of that time. As I had no solid reason to do continue wearing coverings and getting stared at, I stopped. I figured that if I was getting more attention wearing one than going bareheaded, it kinda defeated the purpose.
Today that passage came up again, and I started doing some more research. Now I’m even more confused. I know that Church law used to state that women had to wear hair coverings and that it no longer is mentioned. When I read articles by different people on the issue, everybody contradicts each other and have equally valid arguments.
So that basically leads me to the point of this. What is your opinion on head covering? Only in church or all the time? What qualifies as a head covering? Or do I even wear one at all? And if I wear one all the time, how is it best to go about that (keep in mind that I am 16)?
