Are Tattoos Sinful? || Jefferson Bethke

Today's "red meat does not have blood" So what is that red liquid you are seeing in red meat? Red meats, such as beef, are composed of quite a bit of water. This water, mixed with a protein called myoglobin, ends up comprising most of that red liquid. In fact, red meat is distinguished from white meat primarily based on the levels of myoglobin in the meat. The more myoglobin, the redder the meat. Thus most animals, such as mammals, with a high amount of myoglobin, are considered “red meat”, while animals with low levels of myoglobin, like most poultry, or no myoglobin, like some sea-life, are considered “white meat”.

but in this verse He is not talking about a tattoo, those marks are from the nails that pierce him in the cross, your names are there because he got them to set you free, is not about if I mark my body with a tattoo before i met Jesus, is about what i know now that i respect this body that God gave me not to destroy it but to glorify Jesus with it. Why should I even think about get a tattoo with a verse on it, just to show that im cool? that i haven't changed? sometimes we can miss lead.... help the youth do not throw them back to world but save them from it

Brian Whosoever Akerly Isaiah 55:8 is precisely the point why we shouldn't damage our bodies and Samuel 16:7 is the call of service to God, In Daniel chapter 3 you can see an example of been faithful to God, when you walk with Jesus you appreciate more his creation, marking your body is same as destroying his creation and tagging your church. Jeff is excellent speaker with a great gift from God but sometimes we use our Gift in the wrong way.

Sinner, deceiver, liar, fornicator, blasphemer, prideful, wicked, deceitful, self-serving, self-righteous, arrogant, drug addict, dealer. Just to mention a few. Just wondered how the blood of Christ is weaker than the opinions and ideologies of man. Just grateful that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Thank the Lord god Almighty that I am loved by my Father in heaven as I love His Son as he is God. We will be required to show a harvest as those who don’t bear fruit will be cut off, gathered on a pile and burnt. Have you used the talent that God gave you in Christ's love? I work with REAL men who would laugh at some of these remarks, and if you said that to them you would probably end up getting a bear knuckle sandwich. Some of these men are covered in tattoos, skulls and dragons as well as some skimpy or undressed woman. But each time they hear the truth in scripture of how Jesus, my Jesus, died for them, I see how it strips the heart bear revealing a hunger that only God can satisfy. The bible tells me how if we cause any of his "little ones" to stumble we should consider suicide as there is much worse on the cards for people who do. Consider carefully that the wisdom of man will be made foolish. Our ideas and opinions do not hold up to His mercy. Read Leviticus where it says we should not make markings as the pagan nations did....... How did they do it? They worshipped the dead as well as death and used bloodletting, human sacrifice and tattoo marks to venerate the dead. So don’t venerate the dead, don't put pagan markings or mystical creatures on you, if you have..... Repent. and live like you have. don’t be judged, bound or condemned but live in the freedom of Christ, in that when you live Jesus the Law becomes a living breathing thing you can touch. Jesus is the Law made flesh! So if you love someone, and that person is everything to you, sent of God, you start to love the things they love. When i love Jesus, the things He is, that becomes important to me. He is the Word made flesh! 1 Cor 13 says that Have I not love, I am nothing but rotten flesh, worm infested, putrid stench covered with a cheap grave covering that even needs to be painted as even that does not hold up. Love covers a multitude of sins, does not permit it though. So love has set us free. Bible says that it was for freedom that we were set free. Free to do what we want? No! But free from the condemnation of Law. In Psalms it says that God engraves my name in His hand, another explanation says that he engraves with ink permanently....... I don't preach tattoo's I just say stop focussing on a new law, a new religious habit. love Jesus and love what He loves. The lost. He loves us so much that he put His money where His mouth was and proved it by dying to prove it. And in it He defeated sin and death and became the perfect spotless Lamb, the true pure offering to God for the sinner He would know me to be! Most of the church is lost anyway. The bible says two brothers will walk in the field and one will be taken and the other left behind. The parable of the ten virgins says that five will enter in and those without oil in their lamps will not enter in. We are focussing on tattoos and piercings, brandings and dermals? Half of the church if not anymore does not have a living relationship with Jesus. So the first line I wrote......? It described me; I was that before I served Christ. Bible says in Christ all the old things have passed away and everything has been made new. Don’t lose the newness, don’t forget how it was when you were first forgiven, don't forsake your first Love. Tattoo or no tattoo? Choose for yourself after you had dinner with Jesus. After you have loved like He did, let him without sin then cast the first stone. Love you all with the love of Christ. But I thought by now you would be teachers of the living Word and instead you still get flustered by these elementary things. The dying needs Life not more law. Go into the entire world teaching them this that Jesus had taught us, baptizing them in His name. And showing them how to follow the Way that leads to everlasting life! We will not be judged on sin but loved by Christ! We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. I am no better than anyone. But God took a junkie dealer and fornicator like me, applied His love and mercy called Jesus, and made me His servant. I am your humble servant, the chiefetst of sinners, son of the Most High God. Christiaan Brandenburg (aka Pastor of Durban Bikers Church, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa) Jeff my Bro, bless you and keep the fire burning, follow hard and keep standing as you are blessing, an inspiration, a light that shines into darkness and the salt that gives flavour to this world. Yours in Christ Jesus.

Harold, the Father does the inscribing not a tattoo guy ..... just saying

Brian Whosoever Akerly You quoted I Samuel. And Adonai said what? " for I have rejected him" ? If you and I don't OBEY the Law then we will be vomited out .... I obey because of His, Yeshua's, love for me and He ask me too. Not to try and talk away what he has said NOT to do.

Tim Morton I agree with your statements. I'm sorry but it was the correct bleeding of animals and then not to eat say blood pudding or head cheese which is made with blood. You can't justify tattoos. Thank you Tim for your insights

If you don't know that you're loved and forgiven without physically marking it on your body, you're in need of prayer. And remember, He's the Potter--and your time in the kiln isn't finished yet!

I would say a believer believes GOD s word, with all His /Her heart, dont reason GOD s word.It says clearly in Leviticus 19 : 28 Why reason,only believe, repent and accept GOD s DIVINE Word, the BIBLE says those who love me will keep my commandments,We will be judged by the same word we proclaim to believe,so Brother if u Love THE LORD ,KEEP His HOLY word.AMEN

This is what I am talking about! We are not the owners of this body, If we are saved and filled with the Holy Spirit we need to get our Bodies right with God! I am not judging anyone, i am not Holier than anyone else i'm still being worked on... But I don't think that verse has to do with this... Anything in excess is not good... I would revisit that praying and fasting about this issue... We don't want to mislead others... God knows that I don't want to be accountable for that...

But sadly enough there`s people out there that worship their tattoos and don`t worship God..and it`s been proven that tattoos can /will lead to is it worth it in the long run folks?

  • 2013-07-07T21:26:08

Ι am sorry, but you're sorely mistaken! Tattoos are fobidden expressly by God and no matter what anybody says, reality remains reality! Tattoos are permanent on a clear and clean body God has given us on which we have no power because it belongs to Him and is the temple of the Holy Spirit in the case of born-again Christians. And comparing it with "fruit" etc. is absolutely preposterous because the latter might be a temporary offence for which there was hope of repentance and no repetition, without any indelible marks! Whereas, tattoos mark one for life!

God looks at Our hearts not Our tattoo's.
