    Verse 32 commands that we respect older ones. The way we treat older ones will have an effect on our relationship with God.
  • Peter
    Just like any other transgression we've committed before we were born again, you're forgiven for Tattoos, but you're not to continue in getting ink, or any other transgressions you do. Otherwise you can't continually sin. Grace covers most of it, as a Pentecostal we believe in Conditional Eternal Security, not Unconditional Eternal Security, the term mostly used for it is Once Saved Always Saved

    " ..... nor print ANY marks upon you: I AM the LORD." what part of 'any' does one not understand? This COMMAND refers to ONLY after one has repented and been baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for remission of sins. God does forgive any their 'marks' they have AFTER coming to Him, but we are not to get any more after coming to Him.

A beard is what our Father has required us to have and He provides details. I did not see a schedule, limiting the period nor geographical restrictions as to where not to. God 's words are clear... and a beard is a small price from his creation. Unless your heart is bent on satisfying man. I wear Tzi-Tzi 's Tassels also as commanded by our Father. YOU the "so called believer " that does not follow our Fathers commands are the "worldly one ". Think about it
  • to me it is an outward sign of rebelliousness, pride, vanity, ignorance,, self-righteoueousnss " Brands " your sinful nature to all who see it. In God 's eyes, E knows your heart and intentions, and He is our Judge. I choose to follow Jesus 's example.
