Apostle Malm: Head Coverings Required For Women UPDATED

If you plan on attending apostle Malm's cult and are a woman, you need to be prepared to have your head covered while in prayer.

He writes today in his horrific review of Corinthians:

6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: If the woman’s hair were her covering; why should she be shorn for not covering her head with her hair?  If her hair is her covering, than her head is already covered so why should she be shorn?
And if the woman have no hair to cover her head: how can she then be shorn? Therefore if a woman refuse to cover her head in worship; she should have her head shorn. but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
If she is ashamed to have her head shorn, then let her cover her head in worship and prayer.


I missed the following comment by the apostle.

I believe that ALL scripture is for US as Paul himself explains, and that it is absolutely appropriate for women to cover their heads during study and in  prayer or in a formal church service.

I know that in our ultra liberal and permissive society this is not a popular position; yet I will stand with Paul.  This is my position and is not open to argument, that having been covered thoroughly in the past.

Our salvation does not depend on whether we cover our heads, but our salvation IS dependent on our humility and teachableness before God.

So let it be said, so let it be done.

Does a bag over the wife's head count as a covering?

Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him,

New Living Translation (©2007)
Isn't it obvious that it's disgraceful for a man to have long hair?

English Standard Version (©2001)
Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears long hair it is a disgrace for him,

New American Standard Bible (©1995)
Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him,

Actually, I have never understood what Paul was getting at. No, it is not obvious from nature or obvious at all that a man should not have long hair. If he means nature as in mother nature, it shows the opposite. If he means the nature of things, what things?

There is nothing more masculine looking than a jet black, long haired native American male or a Celtic male of the middle ages.

This also proves that the Apostle Paul never met any real Jesus or saw his picture on the wall in Sunday School

Well, you know (the Bill McDowell school of Biblical Apologetics) that a man with long hair might get it all tangled up while he's working outside and die as a result.

You know like Absalom in II Samuel 18:9.

Does not nature itself teach you that if you let your hair grow really long and you are riding a mule and you pass under a low hanging branch on a tree, you might be caught and your enemies could come and slay you with a sword?

So there it is.

Nature teaching men not to have long hair.

But clue me in: Just how does nature show that women should have long hair? Couldn't they get it caught on a cupboard near the stove while the burner is on high and not be able to reach the controls and thus die in fire?

No, no. I can't see how this works.

Doughlas rightly notes: "Couldn't they get it caught on a cupboard near the stove while the burner is on high and not be able to reach the controls and thus die in fire?"

Yes they could. But these are Bible women. They aren't worth much and can be replaced.

Burned at the steak, so to speak.

What's all the fuss about? Everyone knows that the bible teaches that women are just a glorified uterus on two legs. Only men get to go to heaven. Heaven is already overpopulated with virgins anyway. So, why would a woman need to pray in the first place? (sarcasm)
