Hi, I'm Joyce Alice, a Christian woman who wears a head covering during worship and prayer. This blog is intended for WOMEN ONLY, not for men. I hope this website will be helpful to other Christian women who are seeking to understand 1 Corinthians 11:2-16. There is a link to a Table of Contents at the bottom of each page. My main website is www.TheJoyfulEye.com. Thanks for your interest!
Some Bible passages that talk about Woman's role:
"Wives, likewise, besubmissive to your own husbands,
that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word,
may be won by the conduct of their wives,
when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.
Do not let your adornment be merely outward ---
arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel ---
rather let it be
the hidden person of the heart,
with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which is very precious in the sight of God.
For in this manner, in former times,
the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves,
being submissive to their own husbands,
as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord,
whose daughters you are
if you do good and are not afraid with any terror."
1 Peter 3:1-6
"Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
For the husband is head of the wife,
as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.
Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ,
so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything."
"Wives, submit to your own husbands,
as is fitting in the Lord."
". . . the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior,
not slanderers, not given to much wine,
teachers of good things ---
that they admonish the young women to love their husbands,
to love their children,
to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good,
obedient to their own husbands,
that the word of God may not be blasphemed."
"I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control."
1 Timothy 2:8-15
"Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church."
