General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Williams Kumuyi has preached against the persistent covering of hair by women.

In a recent sermon, Kumuyi told ushers in his church to stop imposing hair covering rules on ladies as persistent coverings cause heat in the hair, which leads to odour.

He lamented that Christians who don’t know how to interpret God’s word are driving people away from the church.

The Deeper General Superintendent backed his directive by citing 1Cor 11v5 in the Bible.

Kumuyi who wondered why some sisters in the church would cover their hair for almost 20 hours a day, stated that women should only have their heads covered while praying or prophesying.

The cleric also said that such a manner of dressing has made some women unattractive.

Kumuyi said;

“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 and don’t know whether the person does not even know God.

“Ushers confront her out there before she even enters the church and doesn’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.”

“There are some women who are not attractive to their husbands, and 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.

“Because of persistent covering there will be “heat in the hair and it will emit odour.”

Kumuyi averred that women who persistently cover their hair are putting “themselves in bondage because they never read the word.”

He also said some of them might not even be praying but believe their outfit makes everything okay.

He added;

“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.

“Some single sisters that are not presentable, and those 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.”
