Several of Malm's online acolytes were a little disturbed by Malm's insistance on women wearing head coverings:
An acolyte asks:
Okay, I’m not to proud to admit that this entire topic, as presented, is confusing to me.The Chief Pharisee responds:
You seem to be saying that anyone of feminine gender who goes to church or who engages in Bible Study or prayer should have some sort of head covering.
You also seem to be saying that a head covering denotes a married woman just as a wedding band might.
Finally, you seem to be saying that all hair on a woman’s head should be covered (like the habit of a nun or Muslim headscarf minus the veil).
With this in mind:
How exactly should a husband instruct his wife, daughter, or granddaughter in such matters? Don't you already have sympathy for this mans wife, daughter and granddaughter! Oy!
When should a head covering be worn and how extensive should its covering be for a woman to show herself a godly woman?
I said that head covering started out as a physical covering over the hair, denoting a married woman, just as a wedding band might [but the wedding band is pagan and the hair covering is scriptural]; and that Christ approved of that and used it as an allegory of the marriage of the Lamb, and the chaste modesty and faithfulness of the bride of Christ. And further we should do this to acknowledge the authority of the Head, the Father in heaven and our espoused Husband Jesus Christ as our HEAD.In the Church of Malm women are not even allowed to discuss scripture without covering their heads.
If women do not do this; then they are not respecting the authority of the Father or Christ as our Head.
It is very simple, women should cover their glory as a sign of humility when in the presence of God; at services, n prayer or while discussing the word of God. They will be greatly blessed for doing so.
Any cloth or hat that covers the top of the head and is modest; not gaudy like an ostrich plume or fruit salad hat would do nicely! James
