Lev 19.19 Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material

:panic I have on a cotton/poly blend! :reaction

I don't understand your reaction. If you cannot do one of the sins from the passage you yourself quoted, you cannot do the other. In the same exact chapter you quoted, it ALSO says no blended materials. You cannot pick and choose which are real sins by the sins you do and don't commit. Just because you don't have tattoos does not make it a sin for others based on that verse if you wear blended materials or eat medium rare steak. That is "cherry picking" sins.

27 You shall not shave around the sides of your head, nor shall you disfigure the edges of your beard.

My DH shaves his beard and likes med rare steak! :panic

26 " 'Do not eat any meat that still has blood in it.

Ha ha ha!

Good points. We are not held to the old Levitical Law that condemns those things, and that includes tattoos.

However, tattoos are something to be HEAVILY considered before getting. I was almost pressured into getting a tattoo of a stupid logo my friends made a year ago.

Would have been the biggest mistake ever lol.

The way I see it, the only tattoo I would ever get would be of a cross, and it would have to be in a place easily covered by clothing. But then what's the point of getting a tattoo in the first place?

Personally, I don't like tattoos. If you change you mind, about the message or the image you have, later in life; well it's not that easy to get rid of or change is it?

As for is it a SIN? I really can't say I've found anything in the Bible that says it is.

Do you know Chinese or Japanese well enough to write Scripture in the languages for yourself, and can you read the languages for yourself?

Aside from everything else stated in the above thread, it is a BAD idea to get tattoos Scripture/words/etc. in any symbolic language such as Chinese that you don't completely know for sure for yourself first because it may not actually say what you think. I've read stories of people getting tattoos thinking theirs said something when it was totally incorrect and different, and they only found out by people's reactions. Laughter, wierd looks, etc. And it may be something completely demonic, occultic, ridiculous, or obscene.

I still stand by my son's choices of Christian tattoos on his forearms (which can be viewed on page 18 here on this thread.)

He is Saved. Our Lord knows his heart, thus he is not subject to the O.T. laws (Leviticus).

He's been able to witness to people because of them, where he might not usually, as he tends to be shy and keep to himself. However, when he's asked what the verse means, he speaks of Jesus Christ, where the questionner may have never heard of Jesus before. :idunno In this day and age, can we condemn this?

Only God knows where he has planted seeds for the Holy Spirit to water, after all.

Very true statement!!

The key to Christian liberty topics is "use Vs. abuse"
use as in moderation
abuse as in overindulgence and losing your witness before the world.

This is what the Lord God says: Lev.19:28
Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you:
I am the LORD
