You know, I have noticed a lot of the nonchalance associated with to wear a head covering or not to wear a head covering is justified with the "changing of the times"...might I pose the question, who is changing the times? For Our Father is an unchanging Holy God. Is it not true that this world is in the delusions of the Devil himself? I've witnessed first hand that while things may seem simple and pure of heart and intention, those are quite often the most unnoticed of Satan's schemes to break our Divine Ascent toward the Kingdom of Heaven.
But being a convert in the makings, I speak from a fool's perspective and would love gentle, educated feedback.
being able to distinguish between [t]radition and [T]radition is a very valid concern. I am not qualified to speak on the matter authoritatively. But I do read a lot, and listen a lot, and it seems to me that the idea of headcoverings is possibly one that was borne out of specific cultural contexts which weighted the practice with theological significance. When the cultural context is gone, the mandate follows.
Your point about who changes the times is a good one. But it, too, does not have an easy answer. Because all of us can agree that SOME changes in society are evil, while others are simply historical and cultural inevitabilities.
As Brio said, you are on the internet right now. There is no scriptural mandate for anything on the internet specifically
, though the spirit of the scriptures and the Tradition can certainly be applied
to the Internet in a general sense.
You don't want to go down the road of ignoring historical context or it's going to get very difficult for you.
