Can a really Christian girl get a tattoo?

Go with what the Bible says, not people. Their is scripture about this subject. You aren't suppose too. Does this mean you'll go to h-ll? I don't think so. This choice is between you and God. What I suggest is you look up scripture on the matter, and pray about it.

If we place ourselves back under the curse of the old Laws, we have to follow every law. Not pick & choose. We are under the law of Grace, not the written code. Galations.

Homosexuality quote(all scripture you noted, although fail to understand the difference between Shekobeth, shekab and homosexuality) "Want to go to hell. God is against it."
Yet here Leviticus 28, so its breaking a law and look at your response in contrast.

Leviticus 19:28 1 Corthians 6: 19-20 Also 10:31 1 Timothy 2:9 and last what Jesus said Mathew 5: 17. We all know that if we could have kept the old laws that Christ died in vain. We all know that the pork thing has been out of play. For all those who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and savior we can eat what we want. We are talking about Tatts. Now, I answered in way to encourage this young lady to read and pray. Let the choice be between her and God. She said she was a Christian, so let her pray. Now, I have tattoos from before I was a Christian. None of them glorify God. It is my conviction not to get any more. As far as I'm concerned Bible is clear. Their is no condemnation in Christ. My tattoos are prison tattoos and even know they don't glorify Him it has turned into something good. God can take anything bad and turn it to good! Amen. I can talk to inmates and troubled teens, I've been their and they know it. So, it has made me a better disciple. I'm not the Holy Spirit, and I'm not going to say this is okay for a young Christian woman.

Their are absolutes in the Bible. Bible is very specific in calling homosexuality a perversion and sin. How do we know what God thinks? Through His Word. John 1:1 in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. My attitude was changed because of the circumstance of the question. I would tell homosexuals to read the Word as well. In the beginning of Romans it says they denied God, exchanged the truth of God for lies, etc. Then in Corinthians it specifically says that homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Now you have this question about tattoos. It isn't the same. In the old days they did tatts and piercings as a sign of slavery, and was to serve a different master then God. The covenant you speak of was the sacrifices we use to do to animals. We no longer have to do those things because of Christ. Anyways in your response to my answer you have brought up 3 completely different things. My attitude towards sin is the same. Be more specific on exactly what I said that got you confused or made you think that in some way I was different. Tatts and piercings are a sin if you are doing it as a sign that you are a slave to someone else. Here is an easy way to determine the difference. Is what you are doing a desire of the flesh or Spirit? Jesus ask those who follow Him to deny the flesh, and to pick up your cross daily. Anyways, I have decided to change my attitude towards you, and will answer your questions to the best of my ability and according to Gods Word. But I hope this explains the difference in the way I typed answers to the two questions you have responded on. I'm not going to argue though. If you want me to listen and see your side, I would ask that you respect and consider mine. Have a great day! I have to go for now and will respond when I get back.

Bulldozier you tell Homosexuals straight you are very clear on them posts, you quote scripture you say "If you want to go to hell, it is a Sin."
In your other post you said the laws of God still stand. Tattoos are breaking one of them. You saying it is to do with slavery is your interpretation you using commonsense outside of the bible. But inside of the bible if you break the law it is a sin. Yet your answer here is nothing like your posts on Homosexuality its wimsical. No scripture, "Oh I doubt you will go to hell for it." Well thats not what the bible says, break a law its a sin. Its cherrypicking and it shows a crystal clear bias. Who do you care least for homosexuals or young people having tattoo's? Or does one have a pass because of your personal feelings on the topic? One or other.

Have any of you considered this way of looking at tattoos; Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, tattoos would be considered the same as graffiti on any building. Also think about the fact that these bodies are not our own, they are loaners from God.

Laurey, you understand very well. One commits sin, one goes to hell. However, since there s no way a human being could never commit sin, a perfect human life has been given in atonement for all humanity. So, if one commits sin, one repents and Jesus s blood cleanses us from sin (metaforically). We are justified. If the repentance is sincere.

The Bride of Jesus has a nose ring.
Threw some holier than thous for a loop showing 'em that one.
They were nice people but thought that their outward appearance was more important that the inward.
Holiness comes only from what Jesus has done for us.
Report as
But the Bible says 1. to watch over our bodies because its temple of the Holy Spirit. 2. To dedicate our bodies to God as living sacrifice. 3. To keep a good testimony. The bride of Jesus does not have a nose ring. That was the bride of Isaac, it was a matter of custom and it was the man who chose her as Isaac s wife that put the ring (that btw was pure gold) on her nose.

One doesnt enter the kingdom of God for being nice. Now, people like to say that salvation isnt by works, but by faith. But the Bible says faith without works is dead. In many passages of the New Testament, it teaches to not sin and that those who do wont enter the kingdom of God. People say that we all sin, we cant be perfect and never sin. But the first epistle of the disciple of Jesus namd John says that the one who sins is of the devil. That who is of God abstains from sin and doesnt practices sin. One thing is doing sin by mistake and always doing our best to not sin. Another thing is not giving a thought about doing sin or not. Doing sin all the time instead of trying to abstain from sin.

What is sin? What the Bible teaches is sin.
Report as
But if we sin, we have Jesus as mediator so that through His sacrifice, we may receive forgiveness says the Bible as well.

Bryan, you are talking about the book of James. Faith without works is dead. Christ comes in and changes us.Through Christ we are all conquers. The way I answered the question, was to read scripture and to pray about it. I'm not the Holy Spirit, figured He could do a better job then I.

I can give you a whole list if you want.....And piercings <3...I love piercings O-O Anyways...someones image has nothing to do with their faith and beliefs...if God wants you to change something.

Leviticus 19:28: “You must not make cuts in your flesh for a deceased soul, and you must not put tattoo marking upon yourselves.

Lots of people get tattoos and become christian after that. They ve repented for their sin, but they cant take the tattoo off. On the other hand, piercings are not so bad, but think about it. Piercings make people look more intimidating.. And to preach the love of God while looking intimidating... What will people think? They re not like the christians who know better than to look on the outside. If you want people to come to Christ, appearance does matter. People of false religions know it, and that s why they put on fine clothes and act friendly when they go preach their religion.

Second point: God doesnt want you to scar your body. God made you, God cares about you, God likes you the way you are. We already saw how God feels about putting marks on your body for the dead. The reason for this is that when you put a mark on your body, you symbolically belong to whoever that mark represents (as we can learn throughout the Bible, from the Torah, where a slave was marked when he decided to belong to his lord forever even having the chance to be free, to the book of Revelation, where all who have the mark of the Beast/Antichrist, which is the 666, belong to the devil). As for ''marks of God'', like crosses, fish, Bible text, or any others; Marks on the flesh are meaningless (such as circumcision), but the wound and the pride of the wound you did on your body, which is sin for being intentional. In other words, your pride of your sin. That s what a tattoo is. God doesnt want you to scar your body. God wants you to keep, not the cross, His sacrifice; not the fish, His name, and more than Bible text, His word and His Spirit; not on your flesh, but in your heart. And if you do put them on your flesh, the very texts will condemn you. Because they testify of God, and His will is not that you put tattoos on your body, which is temple of the Holy Spirit. And that s the third point.

That is, if you dont repent. If you repent, as I said before, your sin is taken away, but the mark remains...

Report as
Well, now you re talking about piercings. If people are gonna have piercings, then let it be small piercings and not too many. So it doesnt look like some ancient method of primitive torture, and so people will see a person with piercings instead of just a bunch of piercings hanging on to skin. Appearance does matter. A christian must be descent to be called a son or daughter of God. Because like parents can feel ashamed of their sons or daughters when they are not descent and when they get home the parent scolds the son or daughter, the same way God can also feel ashamed of us when we are not descent. And if He has mercy, He will talk to someone directly. If not, He has already talked to that person through people, but the person didnt wanted to listen.

You dont go to a church, you are in sin. Because the Bible says to go to church in Hebrews 10:25. You say you live for Jesus... Do you ask God if He likes the music before listening to it? And if He doesnt like the music, do you listen to Him, or do you listen to you telling yourself God thinks its okay to listen to that music? When you re gonna watch tv, or a movie, do you ask God if He likes the show or movie? And if He doesnt, do you listen to Him, or do you listen to you telling yourself that Jesus considers its okay if you watch it? You dont try being perfect, well do you try being better every day? Do you try to follow the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles which are in the Bible and listen to His Holy Spirit, or do you only try to be what you consider is good? And do you even know enough about what Jesus and the Apostles taught?

I didnt ask those questions to know about you. If you reply here, its the same as if you didnt. I asked them for you to analyze yourself.
Report as
-sighs- I understand that you asked those questions for me to analyze myself...But you are one of those people that would look at me and not even acknowledge me and think I'm devil worshiper or something...And doesn't really get me...And I disagree with a lot of things you say....and theres no point to explain and talk...So I'm done here...Enjoy your life....
Report as
Well, now its you that is judging me. You say I would look at you and not acknowledge you and think you re a devil worshiper. If you mean you have tattoos or piercings, I wouldnt think that you re a devil worshiper (under common definition and idea of what is worshiping the devil) for that. Maybe you got those tattoos before knowing Christ, maybe you dont know that its wrong, maybe you accepted Christ recently, or, as I call it, you re young on the Gospel, or maybe you dont know God, but dont worship the devil either. There no way I would know and there s no reason for me to think that. And even if it turned out that you did worship the devil (its all hypothetical, I know you dont), you re still a human being with a chance at salvation just like anyone else.

You know, I have more friends that dont serve God than I have friends that serve God. Many know about God and havent made the decision to serve Him, many dont believe in God, and few have told me that they do worship the devil. And one of my friends, when I met her, that s the first thing she told me. That she worshiped the devil because of things that happened that God didnt stop. After a long discussion, I showed her more than once that it wasnt God s fault. But since the conversation kept going, I changed the subject. We started getting closer. And she even said a few times that she wanted to serve God. Well, first she needs to be free of all the demons she has. But at least, now she doesnt worship the devil. And she s more serious and more thoughtful about serving God.

Really Christian? The Bible says that tattoos are wrong but it's up to the person if they want tattoo or not. God will forgive them if they get it so it's not bad. My uncle has a tattoo of a cross and one of Jesus.

I personally thought God had bigger things to be concerned with than me. But God still made a big deal of me. He will make a big deal of every sin as little as it is. Because God wants us to be holy. Without holiness, nobody will see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14). Who deliberately, knowingly, and habitually practices sin is of the devil. No one born of God deliberately, knowingly, and habitually practices sin (1 John 3:8-9).

Your body is temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19), so dedicate it to God as living sacrifice (Romans 12:1). Why would God want you to get a tattoo?

Sometimes, people like to do things for God that God doesnt like, even when we see no wrong in it, and think it would be good and God would change His mind. If God wanted us to have tattoos, we would be born with tattoos (as we are with moles and birthmarks). But back to what I as saying. When Israel came out of Egypt, two of the sons of Aaron though it would be nice to get different incense to God, they thought maybe God would like it more. But instead, God burned them and took their lives. That was incense, and yes, we are gentiles, and we are in the time of grace, but think how much God doesnt like tattoos. Never said it was allowed in the Bible.

You need to start reading the New Testament and realize we r not under the law of the Old Testament. God is more interested in the issues of our hearts... Not what we eat , drink and wear. It's not so black and white. Paul says there r many things that r permissible. Getting a tatoo is not marking yourself to say which god u r serving as in the Old Testament. Be careful not to judge others.
Report as
Paul says there are many things that are permissible, but on the other side of the coin, he also says many things that are not. Jesus said He didnt come to abolish the Law, but to fulfill it. John said that he said what he said so that they would not sin. But if they do sin, they have Jesus as lawyer. But he still said who sins is of the devil, and the people who are born of the Spirit do not sin. He means do not sin all the time nor on purpose.

What it means to not be under the Law of the Old Testament is that we no longer have to make sacrifices for redemption, we dont need to keep going with the rituals of purification, and those who are impure or have sin dont have to be isolated. The Apostles often talk about abstaining from the things of the world and remaining holy, because without holiness nobody will see the Lord. Lets remember that John said who sins is of the devil. That means its not a matter of doing whatever you want and then coming to say ''sorry''. That s not gonna cut it. James says that who has faith must also have works because faith by itself is very well dead. And John also says who serves Jesus must walk the way Jesus walked. This means to live the way Jesus lived. Which means abstaining from sin, keeping communion and prayer, and things as such.

If it wasnt obvious that a mark is a matter of something people like, God wouldnt have said to not put on marks on the body for the dead. And people wouldve been allowed to have tattoos in the Old Testament for their loved ones because it wouldnt have been a matter of what god you serve. But it still wasnt allowed.

The body is temple of the Holy Spirit. I wonder what would a priest say if you go in the church and put a picture of your mom in the face of the carving of Jesus, or the statue or painting of Mary. Even though its you showing your appreciation for someone, its still desecrating something that they consider sacred. Well, when you put an image on your flesh, you are desecrating the sacred temple of the Holy Spirit.

To you, a tatoo is sin. But, this is not so in the bible. Again, there was a reason in the Old Testament but that's it. Women were also not allowed to have short hair, wear make up and pierce their ears.
I, in no way, see it as a sin. My moms friend was telling me yesterday that one of her friends had mastecomies bc of breast cancer. They were able to give her new breasts by using her own body fat. She had nipples tatooed and now her breasts look very natural and normal. (Never knowing she had mastecomies) Would u tell that lady she just sinned? Legalism never draws people toward God. Just saying.

Tattoo is desecrating the temple of the Holy Spirit. Idk who taught you that women in the Old Testament were not allowed to have make up or pierce their ears. And they did shave their heads when they were depressed.

Now, there s a difference here. There was a good reason to get the tattoos. As you said, it was for her breasts to look natural and normal. And this is also excusable because she did have the operation, which was necessary.

Now, tattoos are sin, but its still forgivable. But we dont sin because we will be forgiven. Paul was clear on the issue in Romans chapter 6, and John was also clear in 1 John chapter 3.

God is strict (Hebrews 12:6), as for libertine leads people away from God (1 Peter 2:16).

At the beginning of your response to me , you seem to say that "it's not the object but what's in your heart," but, then , u also change your mind and on this. So, what u say is a fallacy of "one rule for you, one rule for me." Who gets to decide where the line is drawn? Why do we have church buildings since the "people" r the church? There r many grey areas and each can decide for themselves what is bad or good. (Such as a tatoo)
And , tatoos today don't show that a person is ownership to something. But, if a person wanted a tatoo of a fish, or cross, or dove. well, as a Christian , they r a slave to Christ, ( as scripture mentions)
Report as
You re probably misunderstanding if you think I m changing my mind. Irf you mean what I said that the person who got the operation is excused, well, look at it this way:

The operation itself is mutilation of the body, but it was for a good reason (to remove the cancer), and the tattoo would be like part of the operation. Aside of that, the part of the body is artificial.

There are buildings so people have a place to gather and be a church.

People dont decide what is bad or good. And back then, tattoos that didnt show ownership were also forbidden. In fact, tattoos that showed ownership were the only ones allowed, and only to distinguish that the person could never have the decision of being free. Also, it wasnt just any man to put the mark, it was the priest. And when we get that mark that we belong to God, it wont be by any man, but by God, or an angel, and it will be during Armageddon. Tattoos of fish, cross or dove will judge you. You re scarring the temple for no good reason, even if it is to put a mark of something that represents Christ. Symbols are like the circumcision, but tattoos are scarring the temple.

If you are going to get a tattoo remember it is permanent, or would require surgery to remove (scarring). Make sure you go to a reputable tattooist, piercing the skin and injecting dye runs the risk of infection. Think about what you want. Maybe try a fake one and see if you get fed up with it. Then the choice is yours. Oh and follow the structions of taking care of it while it heals.

Leviticus 19:28: “You must not make cuts in your flesh for a deceased soul, and you must not put tattoo marking upon yourselves. I am Jehovah.” If you are a Christian, you would certainly not want to make markings on your body even temporarily that smack of paganism or false worship.—2 Corinthians 6:15-18.
The prohibition would also have impressed upon them a proper respect for the human body as God’s creation, to be used in honoring him.—Ps 100:3; 139:13-16; Ro 12:1.
