A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. (I Corinthians 11:7 NIV)
Both men and women are spiritually equal before God; however they have been given different roles to perform in the family and in public worship. All human beings were created in the image of God, but women were created especially to provide physical/sexual comfort for their husbands. Male and female bodies each have unique significance. Men should not have their heads covered during church, so that there faces can be fully seen as they preach the word or pray to God. This brings glory to their creator. But women, because they are beautiful, should have their heads covered during public worship, as their physical beauty is so great that it can distract from pure worship. A beautiful woman brings glory to her husband: but this glory needs to be de-emphasized during church. Too much emphasis on female beautify will result in unholy jealousy among congregants. Great care must be taken during church to take the focus off female beautify, and on honoring and serving the One who redeemed us.
