Kumuyi cautions ushers for imposing head covering on ladies


The General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, has admonished ushers in his church for imposing head covering on ladies, especially the first timers. He revealed that consistent covering of the hair causes heat and odour.

The 81-year-old cleric made this statement in a sermon shared on the Facebook wall of the Ekiti State Deeper Life Church monitored by Church Times.

Kumuyi added that some people will be driven away from the church due to many Christians who lack proper interpretation of God’s word.

He 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. 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.”

He also quoted 1Corinthians 11:5 which emphasizes on women covering their head while praying. He noted that ladies should cover their heads while praying or prophesying. However, doing it for long hours would make their hair smell and become unattractive to their husbands.

He continued, “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.

“Women who practice such 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 reason why you are covering your hair is either you are praying or prophesying.”
