Biblical Fashion Advice (part 5 of 7) Yahweh Forbids Tattoos and Cuttings

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com“And YOU must not make cuts in YOUR flesh for a deceased soul, and YOU must not put tattoo marking upon yourselves. I am Yahweh” (Leviticus 19:28)

God’s standard for our beauty and health forbids us to get tattoos and to cut ourselves.  The bible is very clear about this point and so there is nothing to debate.

True Christians should not have a tattoo, think about getting a tattoo, or even think that tattoos are cool.  When God forbids something then it is obviously something bad.  So we shouldn’t covet that which is bad (Psalm 97:10)[1] and think Tattoos are cool.

If you knew this scripture and still got a tattoo, then shame on you.  You are not smarter than God.  If you have a tattoo but just learned this scripture, then seek forgiveness and prayerfully consider what you should do next.

As children of God we are supposed to be recognized by our love (John 13:35)[2]. We are not supposed to be recognized by our tattoo artwork or cuttings.

Stop trying to look like the people of this world (who are nothing more than passengers on a sinking ship) and start living and dressing in accordance with biblical standards, Yahweh’s standards.

[1] Psalm 97:10 “O you who love Jehovah, hate what is bad”

[2] John 13:35 “By this all will know that YOU are my disciples, if YOU have love among yourselves.”
