WWJD"'Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD."
- Leviticus 19:28
What would Jesus do? Jesus would not tattoo his skin and would not advise others to do so, for this is a violation of God's law."Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
- Jesus as quoted by Matthew 5:17
There are those within the church today who erroneously state the Law is destroyed abolished or otherwise subverted by Christ. According to Jesus' testimony this is absolutely untrue. I think Jesus knew what He was talking about even if others do not share my conviction.
Without understanding of the law or its purpose, those who scoff at the law wander in self-deluded darkness and will not comprehend the fullness of God's plan for redemption. Neither shall they inherit the fullness of God's grace and mercy for themselves.
(1 Peter 4:17)
The question has been asked as to whether Christians young or old ought to get a tattoo. The answer from God's Holy Word is available, if not accepted
This is a sad reflection upon Christians today. Like sheep wandering without a shepherd's guidance each one partakes of his or her own special brand of hypocrisy
. Is this not why the world laughs at the church today? Is this not why the church is held in derision for its moral corruption and spiritual decadence? Do the law or do it not.
Don't pretend God approves of its violation. HE DOES NOT.
If the reader chooses to reject God's Word, then why ask the question in the first place? But if one sincerely desires to follow God's Word and therefore to please Him, then this must be taken seriously.
"Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
" - 2 Timothy 3:4
These are the last days. Does the reader love pleasure and the approval of the world or does the reader love God and God's ordinances?
Choose wisely. Your future depends upon it.
that's me, hollering from the choir loft...
Jews know the Law forbids tattoos.
Christians ought to obey this law as well.
Even Islam forbids it.
“The Prophet [pbuh] cursed the one who does tattoos, the one who has a tattoo done...
" - al-Bukhari, 5032
Tattoos are inherently filthy and sinful. All the world's major religions agree on this. Which part of NO is not understood?
