  • God has given us free will. God has given us his word and his Spirit to discern. We can start in Genesis and see where God says, "let us create man in our image. " I have a difficult time convincing myself the Godhead has brightly colored markings with different sayings, phrases, or pictures. Some will argue that Lev 19 28 is in the Old Testament so it doesn 't matter. We must then take into consieration that Pastors are accountable to teach the whole counsel of God. Now if we want to move forward to the New Testament we must take into consideration that the Bible tells us our bodies are the the temple of the Holy Spirit. 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God 's. I believe if God wanted us to have tattoos he could certainly have addressed that at creation. The Bible teaches us separation, christians are in the world but not of the world. We are to live and act differently than the world. We are to be different to make a differnce. The world viewpoints and standards due not match up and are not in agreement with God 's viewpoint and standards. If an individual has gotten tattoos prior to salvation and did not have biblical knowledge and understanding so be it. I do not understand why a Bible believing Christian who possess Bible knowledge and understanding would consider the thought. I guess the bottom line is we all have free will and the Spirit of God to discern what is God honoring and that which is not.
