Jesus established the New Covenant for the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:28.) We can neither take from nor add to it. One of the regulations of the New Covenant is Women’s Veils. The Apostle Paul wrote:
Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ… Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head–it is just as though her head were shaved. If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. (1 Corinthians 11:1-16)
According to the teachings of Christ, women members of the World Mission Society Church of God cover their heads in worship and men members do not. It’s not the idea of a mere man Paul, but the teaching of Christ (1 Cor 11:1.) However, no churches except the Church of God follow this teaching. Some insist that women do not need to cover their heads because Jesus said, “whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”
But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. (2 Corinthians 3:16)
Does this Verse mean that women do not need to cover their heads in worship? The books of the 1st and 2nd Corinthians were written by one person: Paul. Did he say “women should cover their heads” in the 1st Corinthians and “women do not need to cover their heads” in the 2nd Corinthians? If then, the Bible will be inconsistent.
In fact, the above Verse (2 Cor 3:16) has nothing to do with a woman’s head-veil. Let’s see the following:
We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away. (2 Corinthians 3:13)
It’s a face-veil, not a head-veil. Moreover, it’s a veil of man, not of woman: it refers to a veil over the face of Moses. When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the Ten Commandments, his face was radiant and the Israelites were afraid to come near him. So Moses put a veil over his face (Exodus 34:29-33.)
Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. (2 Corinthians 3:15-16)
At that time, a man covered his face with a veil while reading Moses (the Bible.) So, it’s a face-veil for a man. So, their claim is neither Biblical nor true. The word “veil” above stands for the Law of Moses. The passage “the veil is taken away” means “the Law of Moses is taken away.” So the correct meaning of 2 Corinthians 3:16 is that we do not need to keep the Old Covenant (the Law of Moses), but we should keep the New Covenant (the Law of Christ.) According to the teachings of the New Covenant, we should follow the regulation on the Women’s Veils.
Some slanderers claim that the World Mission Society Church of God tries to escalate something trivial to the level of God’s commandments. But, every teaching of Christ is very important, even though it seems to be trivial (but it’s not trivial at all!) The slanderers are trying to find fault with every teaching of the WMSCOG, but they do not realize they do not follow God’s commandments.
Jesus said, “If you love me, you will obey my commandment.” If you love Jesus and want to enter the kingdom of heaven, you should obey the commandments of Jesus or the New Covenant. Though there are a multitude of churches that believe in Jesus around the world today, only the World Mission Society Church of God obey the New Covenant including the Women’s Veils according to the teachings of the Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong, the Savior of this Holy Spirit age.
