Women covering their heads

Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women

Submitted by Margaret Hood (United States), Mar 23, 2008 at 12:17

As a young girl growing up in a Christian home. Many of the women did wear head coverings. Some in very fasionable hats back then 50s) But many did not pointing to after Jesus death, we were no longer under the law, but covered under the blood of Jesus shed at Calvary for sinnners which included us all. Head coverings by women is not such a big deal in todays society.

It is fine to cover ones head and is acceptable to not wear a head covering, hat or scarf, veil etc. Jesus finished work on the cross dying in the sinners place covered past present and future sins by those who honestly asked God for forgivness thru the sacrificial Lamb of God ...Jesus Christ. In accepting Christ finished work on the cross, we became one unified in Jesus Christ. Lives change, Jesus is magnified in the work He started. If there is no evidence of "change" in the life of one who professes to be a Christian, then it is questionalabe before God. For He is the ultimate Judge. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my Jewish Savior, One only wants to please Him and represent Him for we are no longer our own, but Chosen to tell the world the 'Good News" The gospel and power of those who have accepted forgiveness in the Savior. Not perfect...yet, but "forgiven". This is the essence of the Gospel or Good New of those who call themselves Christians. To know Jesus is to know the peace, No Jesus...No peace. John 3:16 declares Him as spoke the Savior himself. There is no other way to heaven except by way of the cross for w/out reconciliation thru Jesus Christ, the Father delares "works" as to be consumed by fire and burnt up. Works with salvation is useless, for there has to be Attonement for sin and Jesus Christ bcame that atonment for those who call upon Him.
