CHRISTIANS AND TATTOOS
CAN CHRISTIANS GET TATTOOS
Now you may have been told this before ...
The OLD Testament (Covenant) is quite clear that the Israelites
were not to ever have any type of marks placed on their flesh.
Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh
nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
HOWEVER ... ARE TATTOOS AND PIERCINGS A SIN?
Are Christians with tattoos and
piercings going to hell according to the Bible?
If so ... Does this even include our Christian grandmothers who have or had ear piercings? How about our Granddad who was a sailor and got tattoos as a young man? Or is there some elite Christian group that gets to determine who does and does not go to hell depending on location of piercings and tattoos? What of those who received tattoos and piercings before they became Christians? Most are very eager to condemn Christians with tattoos and piercings, but are they right to do so and better yet, do they have the right to judge others who have tattoos and piercings according to the Bible?
CHRISTIANS AND TATTOOS BIBLE STUDY
CAN CHRISTIANS GET TATTOOS AND PIERCINGS
The NEW Testament (New Covenant)
reveals that only certain rules were to be placed on newly converted
Gentiles (Those people that were other than Jewish) and the Holy Spirit
It seemed good to the
Holy Ghost, and to us, to require no more burden than
these necessary things, that you abstain from meats offered to
idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from
fornication: from which if you keep yourselves, you’ll do well.
Those rules did not mention anything about piercings
and tattoos did they ...
Let's be real ... From childhood young girls are taught to wear ear
THIS is a piercing.
Will all women that have pierced ears go to hell? Will all the lil
girls that were just doing what Mommy taught them live in eternal fire
cuz they did what Mommy did? Is this the loving Lord that we serve? I
What about markings on the body ... Will every man and woman who
served this country and got a tattoo to reveal that they were willing
to die for the men, women and children of this country be seen by God
as evil and worthy of ETERNAL DEATH?
Nobody REALLY believes that do
CHRISTIANS AND TATTOOS RESEARCH
CAN CHRISTIANS GET TATTOOS AND PIERCINGS TRUTH
I sure hope the lil kids that get that lil toy tattoo out of cereal
boxes are not subject to this ideology as well. Come now ...
Now, I am not saying anyone should run out and get piercings or
tattoos. I am not sharing this because I have any piercings or tattoos
as I do not. I am saying that there is but ONE judge and He judges the
HEART of every matter.
So, it seems that such things are between GOD and the person and I
suppose everyone else can judge you by using this Scripture or that
Scripture if they like, but the bottom line is the flesh is going to
return to the dust when we pass from this realm to the next. So the
piercing holes and tattoos will not be going with ya.
For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the
spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
It is what is in your HEART that will be judged
by God and by God ONLY.
So it is not what you do ... But WHY.
Always remember that what people think of you, does NOT define you.
Your words and deeds do.
For those who are itching to quote LAW ...
Check it out ... One of the top 10 commandments was ...
THOU SHALT NOT KILL
Yet, God punished king Saul cuz he did NOT kill a man and a PROPHET of
God ended up killing the fella for GOD.
Then Samuel said
unto Saul, Stay,
I will tell thee what the LORD hath said to me this night.
And he said unto him, Say on. And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the
head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee
king over Israel? And the
LORD sent thee on a
journey, and said, Go and utterly destroy the sinners the
fight against them until they be consumed.
Wherefore then didst thou
not obey the voice of the LORD,
but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight
of the LORD? And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed
the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the
LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek,
and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites. But the people
took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things
which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice
unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal. And Samuel said, Hath the
LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
as in obeying the voice of the LORD?
Behold, to obey is better
than sacrifice, and
to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the
sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and
thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also
rejected thee from being king.
And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have
transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words:
because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice. Now
therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with
me, that I may worship the LORD. And Samuel said unto
I will not
return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the
LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over
Israel. And as
Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the
skirt of his mantle, and it rent. And Samuel said unto
The LORD hath
rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath
given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.
CHRISTIANS AND TATTOOS WISDOM
CAN CHRISTIANS GET TATTOOS HOPE
Is that not
contrary to man's interpretation of the LAW?
The Old Covenant LAW said ... An eye for an eye.
And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbor; as he hath done,
so shall it be done to him; Breach for breach, eye for eye,
tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall
it be done to him again.
HOWEVER ... Jesus DEFINED the LAW.
Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a
tooth for a tooth: But
I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall
smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
Jesus did not change the law but rather gave us the SPIRITUAL meaning.
VENGEANCE belongs to the LORD.
Laws were made for the lawless:
1 Timothy 1:8-9
But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but
for the lawless and disobedient ...
CHRISTIANS AND TATTOOS NEW COVENANT
CAN CHRISTIANS GET TATTOOS NEW RULES
This does not say that law has been abolished but
rather that in the New Covenant, God will place the laws in our
Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that
he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with
them after those days, saith the Lord,
put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will
them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Make NO mistake ... This is not a free pass to sin ...
God forbid, but rather freedom from wanna be judges as you begin to
grow in Christ and over time HE places the laws within you.
As you get tighter with Jesus by way of the Holy Spirit, you will
begin to see things in a diff light than before and you find the
desire to become virtuous for HIM. It will be then that you will begin
to make choices that will be based on LOVE ... Not fear, defiance or
CON-forming to someone's judgments.
It may be at THAT time that YOU make the CHOICE not to have piercings
or tattoos IF that is what YOU believe the Lord wants.
GOD IS LOVE
CHRISTIANS AND TATTOOS SUMMARY
CAN CHRISTIANS GET TATTOOS UNDERSTANDING SETS YOU FREE
Never forget that God's Grace reveals that if you TRULY
believe in Jesus and the TRUTH that He was willing to die for
and did, that you would know that He loves you so much
that you will want to do what He wants you to do
because you would know that He is looking out for your best
interests. You will try hard not to do things that would make
him ashamed or disappointed in you. You may fall, but always
remember that only a worm is free from the worry of stumble and
the real test is to see if you will get up, dust yourself off,
carry on and never surrender.
SAINTS ... ARE JUST THE
THAT FALL DOWN AND GET UP !!!
As time passes, you will find that
you begin to make the right choices, out of love
Not fear of punishment.
Always remember that God sacrificed His Son to get us
It is the enemy of our souls using man, that tries to use law to keep
GOD is your only judge.
