The General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor Williams Kumuyi has altered one of the lomng standing doctrines of the church by cautioning ushers in his church to stop imposing head covering rules on ladies, stressing that persistent coverings cause heat in the hair and it will emit odour.
It will be recalled that covering of hair is one of the doctrines of the church and the church frowns at any lady that didn't do that.
His words, “Somebody is coming to our church for the first time. And she happens to be a lady not covering her head. We ask the person to cover her head before coming in. We don’t know whether the person does not even know God. We confront her out there before she even enters the church. We don’t know if she does not know how to pray or prophesy. But we impose rules on her.
“If I were the person, I would wonder what kind of church is this? If they treat me like a primary school girl, that will be my last time coming to the church.”
Kumuyi said, “There are some women who are not attractive to their husbands. Some believe since they are married they are no longer obligated to look good before their husband. There are single sisters that are not presentable.”
Kumuyi noted that because of persistent covering there will be “heat in the hair and it will emit odour,”
Women who practice such according to him, “put themselves in bondage because they never read the word.”
“If I don’t tell you maybe nobody will tell you. There are some wives who dress shabbily and are no longer attractive to the man. There are some single sisters that are not presentable. Anybody who is looking for the will of God may not be attracted to them.
The Bible says every woman that pray or prophesies. The reason why you are covering is either you are praying or prophesying.”
