Don’t Be Stupid!

Leviticus 19:28  You are not to make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead or make any tattoo marks upon yourself.  I am the Lord.

This post, is purely an opinion post.  I don’t believe that all the Old Testament laws for the Jewish nation necessarily apply to us, however we may find some wisdom in them regarding how not to be offensive to God and others.

I personally can’t ever remember seeing a tattoo or piercing that I ever thought made the “voluntary-victim” look better.  And I certainly never saw one that made the person, who chose to do that to themselves, look smarter.  Tattoos and piercings are often good indicators of bad judgement.  “Tramp-Stamps” are pretty reliable indicators of willingness to engage in sexual immorality and are on many people’s List of Slut Tells.   And these lists aren’t used by solid Christian men to find sluts, but rather to avoid them.  Anyhow, I don’t have any doctrine to teach about this, just lots of personal opinion on the matter, and I’d really like to read the opinions or doctrines of others and perhaps gain some insight from others’ ideas.

1 Corinthians 6:19  Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?  20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
