    TATTOOS & THE BIBLE
    Terry Watkins Dial-the-Truth Ministries
    WHAT ABOUT LEVITICUS 19:28?

    "Leviticus 19:28 is the Christian (or so-called Christian?) tattooist and tattoo-bearer's worst nightmare. The Lord plainly, clearly, strongly, and without a doubt – condemns the tattoo.

    Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
    Leviticus 19:28
    Could that be any more clear?

    "Ye shall not. . .print any marks upon you. . ."

    Simple. . . Straightforward. . .Settled. . .

    God Said It. . . I Believe It. . . That Settles It. . .

    Right. . .?

    Not hardly. . .

    The clear statement from the word of God does not settle anything for this generation of disobedient, carnal, worldy, tolerant, non-judgmental, Christians. Rather than obey God, they run miles and miles and miles to "justify" their open disobedience to the Word of God.

    How do they get around Leviticus 19:28?

    Clearly, there it is. "Ye shall not. . .print any marks upon you. . ."

    A lot of Christians when confronted with Leviticus 19:28, scream, "Hey dude, that’s not for today. Man, that’s the Old Testament. I’m under the New Testament".

    Did you know that "bestiality" (sicko, perverted, sex with an animal) was ONLY forbidden in the Old Testament Levitical Law? Only in Leviticus 18:23 and Leviticus 20:15-16. Dude, only in the Old Testament Law. Does that mean a Holy God NOW – under the New Testament, approves of bestiality?

    By the way, have you ever read Leviticus 19:29? The verse immediately AFTER the "it’s not for me" Leviticus 19:28?

    Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

    Leviticus 19:29
    This is the only place in the Bible that God directly forbids someone to prostitute their daughter. And since, it’s ONLY in the Old Testament Levitical Law (and "hey, dude, we’re NOT under the law") – it MUST be ok by the Lord for a parent to cause their daughter to prostitute.

    Same sick, perverted, wicked, line of reasoning as the "it’s ONLY in the Old Testament-tattoo-bearer-wearer". Same reasoning. . . Same disobedience. . . Same perversion of the Word of God...."

    Cherry,

    Nice to meet you.

    First of all, the condemnation of bestiality is apparent in many other books outside of Leviticus.


    Jude 1:7) Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

    Second, if someone tells you that Levitical Law was specific to that era (and not ours), you can't disagree with them while at the same time using the Bible to justify your opposition to tattoos.

    Do you believe adulterers should be stoned? Do you sacrifice goats and bullocks?

    We are not under the Law; but are saved by grace through faith. I'm glad you're a zealous Christian, but lighten up already!


    Revelation 19:16) And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

    Yes, some people try to justify their own actions, which cannot be done, for only the One who died for our iniquities can justify us to the Father. Only the One who was resurrected the 3rd day can justify any action or deed we do, and He certainly won't justify anything that is done in rebellion to the Father's command.

    Tattooing oneself before faith isn't acceptable, but understood in a sense of every faithful before their faith has committed sins; however, after one understand wisdom the Father has shared through His Holy Son sent for our redemption, one should not be marking their body, which is a temple for the Father, with ink or any such thing. It's as if you're tagging a Holy Place, that is, leaving graffiti as a sign of disrespect.

    Only by our faith and belief in the Holy Son and the Father can we overcome all obstacles that we must face, but there has to be true belief and true faith in what we've been commanded so that we may be perfected at our end. That means keeping commandments and following the Holy Word of the KING.
