Christians know your history. The veil is not indicative of Muslim/Islam women only. Christian women are veiled per Scripture as in 1 Corinthians 11:5-15.
1 Corinthians 11:5-15 King James Version (KJV)
5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.
9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.
12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.
13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?
14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
I myself was shorn (shaven) from 2014 to 2016. The women of the first church, Coptic Orthodox, are not the only Christian women who cover their heads. Many women of many denominations have been and are steadily being called to cover as we Christians are being called to be more Orthodox/Fundamentalist – to be more holy.
When I do cover, I feel so loved, humbled, adored, and protected by GOD. I shun the demonic, vapid, and material secular world. I seek council only with Holy Father and those truly Holy in the Faith. I’ve not the patience for evil and ignorance of its adherents. I say this not to sound boastful of my irritability, but to say that I am an exorcist and do not suffer fools gladly. I am my Father’s Daughter after all. A veiled woman is very serious of the Faith and walks with GOD on her mind. Recall too that Mary, mother of the Messiah, is always depicted wearing a veil. An image far too many of us take for granted as a model of how to dress and carry ourselves, regardless of the denomination. So too, the nuns are veiled.
Not covering is not a sign of wickedness. Each woman is to have a personal relationship with GOD to help with knowing when is her season to cover or not. So when you encounter a veiled woman, don’t assume she is not of the Faith. Offer her a sweet Christian “hello” and know she is doing what she ought to please Holy Father. Even if she is Muslim, we are to remember that many are in bondage in that satanic cult. We are to be as beacons of light to display the love of the LORD to all except demons. Those of discernment know of that which I speak.
P.S. In obedience to LORD GOD I sign my name as Saint, because I am one. As I’ve posted before, GOD chose me for sainthood and sanctified me. I will not describe the occurrences, but to say they were miraculous and glorious. I am so proud and humbled that I’m so cared for and adored by the Father. He is so wonderful! 🙂
