Christians and tattoos  Reply with quote  

Just thought this was funny
http://www.biblebelievers.com/watkins_tattoos/intro.html

Quote:

Beware – the tattoo procedure is a fashion of the satanic practice of blood-letting or cutting of ones flesh. Rubbing a little ink or pigment in it doesn’t change the fact – you are cutting your flesh – you are practicing blood-letting.



Quote:

Take a tour of most tattoo shops and morbid scenes of death, demons, serpents, and hell will engulf you! Grim reapers, flaming skulls, snakes crawling through skulls, demons, Satan, pornography, blasphemy, naked flames of hell – every satanic scene of hell is glorified. Who do you think is the "master artist" painting such hellish scenes in the minds of the tattooist? You know as well as I do who’s the real "master tattooist". . .

I will tell you what I hate about christians:
they dont' even follow the thing they whorship as the word of god.

The bible forbids tattoos, what kind of christian would get one? I have much more respect for Christians who are at least consistant.

The Bible also says not to lie, not to do this, not to do that b/c they are sins.

We are sinful people. There is no way possible to be perfect and follow all of the Bible's rules.

You're basically asking for perfection out of Christians. However, I see where you're coming from. I enjoy a good amount of consistency in people too, otherwise i get annoyed easily. But when it comes down to it if you're asking someone to be consistent with the Bible it'll never happen.

ohw ell, guess I'll go murder babies and pray to satan.

I mean who is perfect?

A consitant christian might not follow a biblical rule every now and then. Maybe they wont' honor their mother and father or they will lie, but they will ADMIT these things are wrong.

Yes they will admit these things. That is why Christians pray for forgiveness of the wrongdoings they have done. Then according to the Bible they ARE forgiven and are given a clean slate. That is why people hang on to thier faith. Killing babies is taking it to a far extreme by the way.

We could go on and on about this.

Do you see the problem with this logic?? It turns life into a constant battle with God and guilt is used as a means of control. THIS IS NOT NORMAL! If you cant live up to the so-called word of god then find a new word of god that you can fulfill.

Life is not meant to be lived in guilt, I have seen to many good people who were christians totally stress over the smallest thing. Their bishop plays off that feeling and tries to control them.

Im all for living a good life and having things to look forward to but ORGANIZED RELIGION IS WRONG. SO WRONG!

that's the one thing I loved about the church when I was a kid

I can just go talk to a priest and pray however many times he says to and I get a clean slate? it's all gone just like that?

shit my post got fucked up. Quick summary:

A tattoo is not a small moral trip up. It is not a lie you make quickly without thinking. It isn't a night you forget to pray. It is something you deliberate over for a long time and then pay large amounts of money for. And it lasts your whole life.

You only get forgiven for this shit if you are really sorry, which you don't seem to be.

Ok, how many times have you deliberitaly lied to someone?

A lot. Everyone does. It is human nature.

It isn't like all of sudden you say "oh shit i just lied to him/her"

Lieing is deliberate and one lie could follow you around your whole life.

So i don't think lieing is a small moral trip-up either.

If you want to make this a thread about is it right for christians to get tattoos go for it. I doubt it'll be too popular. But i'll debate with you.

What is there too debate? the bible says not to. If you are a chrsitain you believe the bible is the word of god.

If you believe the bible is so full of contradictions that you can ignore whatever you don't like you aren't a true christian.

there are alot of practices that were okay or forbidden that changed with time. I assume you are referring to the reference in the book of Deuteronomy that forbids tattoos. Jesus never spoke against them and I think that times change and the spirit in which you get a tattoo is what is what is important. so dont' hate on christians with tattoos.. thats lame.

not deuteronomy.

Jesus didnt' speak on a lot of things. the old testement contains most of the laws. Jesus didn't speak about prostituting your own daughter, only the old testiment did... guess that is okay now?

Organized Religion is not, and should not, be about "changing with the time." Of course OR is stuck looking stupid wether they do or don't so...

Alright,
In the old testament it is said to be a sin to "tattoo" your body more or less. Also in the OT it says "Do not hold back the wages of a hired man overnight." and "Do not plant your field with two kinds of seeds" as well as "Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material"

and those laws are ABSURD. you'll obvouisly agree with that. But they are still the LAWS.

So is it safe to say those laws may have been written for THOSE times?

When the jews were persecuted by rome they tattooed a fish on themselves so as to know friend or foe.

Read Leviticus and you'll learn about the most insane laws ever. They don't apply to our lives.

Now youre thinking what a piece of shit he just believes what he wants to.

your right. I'll write an essay about it. You believe what you want i'll believe what i want. I don't like talking religion on this board. Mostly b/c no matter how hard and how many points i break out it all comes down to faith. And most people think faith is bullshit. And i can't change a persons belief over a message board and im not about to try.
