Why Women Wear Head Covering in Church
her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.”1 Cor 11:6 This is weird Scripture. But a clue lies in something weirder – “ and because the angels are watching, a woman should wear a covering on her head. . .” 1Cor 11:10.
Recently the Book of Enoch has come back in fashion because it was used as Scripture by the New Testament writers. Enoch fleshes out the skimpy story of the Watchers in Gen 1:6. Here we learn that the Watchers were supernatural beings who mated with earth women producing a terrible species of giants. We also learn that the Watchers were condemned. The were not being allowed to return to their home in the spiritual realm. Thus their spirits still roam the earth seeking bodies to get back in to.
These angels are the ones mentioned above, still watching. What is the thing about the hair? Well, we know now that in New Testament times, a woman’s hair was very much connected to her sexuality, even in the minds of the medical profession.
So bottom line, the women were not told to wear a head cover out of some inferior position but wear them to protect themselves from the watcher angels still attracted to women.
Readers can get into all this by reading Michael Heiser’s book Super Natural which I have recommended before.
