Head Coverings – Hiding From Angels | 1 Corinthians 11:10
Today on #CrackYourBible’s apologetics / Bible study, we’re talking about angels, fallen angels that is, who were attracted to beautiful women, so much so that they took them to be their wives! The apostle Paul made a curious statement about how women should cover “because of the angels.”
For instance, we know that women are said to be their “most beautiful” on their wedding day. Could it be that veils are actually connected to a more ancient custom? Is it possible that women all over the world cover themselves to protect themselves from evil spirits?
✝️ From the Bible we know that
- The sons of God had children with human women. Genesis 6:1-4
- Women are told to cover “because of the angels.” 1 Corinthians 11:8-11
