Truly the end has come.beware of where you worship.The Bible clearly states that during the end time, many fake prophet will come to you in my(God's) name.The world is coming to an end and these are all lies of the devil, especially using so called men of God.Many's ears will itch to only what they want to hear and Okotie has told you what you want to hear. I advice you to be wise and not just pick up what any man says in the name of God when he really speaks of what his evil mind thinks ,why doesn't he get one on himself to prove his point.

Tattooing, piercing, and cutting existed in Bible times. They were most often practiced by pagan nations in connection with their religion. Understandably, God forbade his people, the Jews, to imitate those pagans.(Leviticus 19:28) As God’s own special property, the Jews were thus protected from degrading false religious practices.—Deuteronomy 14:2.and as for plastic surgery,I feel sometimes it is needed to treat facial deformities such as clef palate etc,or disfiguring scars and marks,However cosmetic surgery is where the line must be drawn.God expects us to love our selves regardless of how we look.
cosmetic surgery is selfish. and selfish people are too consumed with themselves that they can't love others around them . Everyone should learn to love themselves, flaws and all. Cosmetic surgery doesn't solve the problem, it infuriates it.

Pastor Okotie.I know very soon you will find us a pastor who will prove to us that Homosegxwality, fornication and adultery are not sins.

Body Marking in the Bible

Word RTF

Question:   Hello,  I'm asking anyone who can help me with a search. I'm trying to find in the Bible where it talks about body markings, i.e., tattoos. I have friend who just had a tattoo put on to his arm.  And my sisters tell that having any tattoos on your body is going against God, And I wanted to find out for myself if this is true. Not that I don't believe my sisters. I'm just that way that I need to read it for myself.

Response:  As it say at 1st Corinthians 10:23, "all things are possible, but not all things are beneficial". The Mosaic Law (Leviticus 19:28) does prohibit "cutting oneself for the dead" and "putting writing/drawing [made by] incision on yourselves [i.e., tattoos]". There are certainly many things in the Law of Moses by which we as Christians under grace are no longer bound (the dietary and festal ordinances, for example), but the context of Lev.19:28 is one of pagan idolatry, and the practices described there (vv.26-29) are clearly behaviors that were part and parcel of worshiping idols instead of the one true God. I am fairly sure that your friend is not involved in such practices, so what about tattoos without any idolatrous connection? What the Bible has to say about illicit drugs forms an interesting parallel: in antiquity (New and Old Testament times) non-medicinal drugs were almost exclusively used in witchcraft and pagan ritual (i.e., not for secular, recreational use as today), and it is in that context that the Bible condemns pharmakia (e.g., Gal.5:20). People sometimes try to make the argument that there is no biblical prohibition against drugs - but while that may be technically true, the Bible has plenty to say about sobriety (e.g., Eph.5:18), so that it is not a difficult conclusion to draw that doing drugs is certainly wrong in God's eyes. There are many behaviors that, while they may not be spelled out in the Bible specifically, are still not things that a Christian walking to please God would want to be involved in. There will be a time in the history of the world when many people will get a tattoo, one that true believers must at all costs avoid, the one with the number six hundred and sixty six (Rev.13:16-18). So while the Bible has nothing good to say about tattoos, there are certainly indications in it that permanently marking one's body is a bad idea for a Christian. I would not want to get one; I would not want my son or anyone I know to get one. None of us are perfect - we all make mistakes, we all have need of God's forgiveness for our sins. There are certainly worse things that we can do, that people do all the time, that are far more serious than getting a tattoo - and far less obvious to the eye. Still, like any action or behavior, what we do says a lot about us, about who we are, what we are really thinking, and what is important to us in life. For those who truly put Jesus Christ first in their lives, this attitude cannot help but bubble out for all to see (like the spring of sweet water: James 3:11-13); for those who are really little concerned with following and serving Him, this attitude too will bubble out (like the spring of bitter water). I would not want to judge a person's commitment to Christ on the basis of one act, but I would also not wish to have my good standards eroded by those who are not as committed to the Lord as I am. This is the constant challenge that faces all true Christians here in the devil's world: to live in the world (and minister to it as we have been given the gifts and resources to do so), but not to be overcome by it, rather to be transformed in it by careful attention to the Word of God (Rom.12:1-2;12:21).

stop lying on top go God's head...God did not create gay...that is devil hand work...is a sin
Are you choosing for God what He created and did not create? Be careful. Forget your Corinthians, Galatians or wherever those thief pastors also quote to obtain from poeple like you, and follow the words of Jesus Christ and it shall be well with you.

i a, not choosing for him but just telling u the simple truth..if u are one of them change your ways...God didn't create adam and Adam or eve to eve..rather he created Adam and Eve..and he wasn't stupid to have creatd them this way...change I'm not saying I'm a saint or living without a sin..but when something is not right one have to say it...change and try and learn to phyuk a woman...I wonder what y'all gay gain from having sex with the same sex...there is nothing there...and God is not in support of it..Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the segxwally immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosegxwal offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (NIV, 1st Corinthians 6:9-11)

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (NKJ, Leviticus 18:22)

If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (NKJ, Leviticus 20:13)

Leviticus 19: 28 Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord. This is the Word of God If a priest of God like Christ said Surgery  and Tattoos. He must ask God for for forgiveness because he have remove. God warn us not to add or remove anything in his words in holy Bible.

All this teddy bear pastors are turning the world up side down. God have mercy

'Educated but illiterate' do you really know the correct meaning of illiterate?
being an Illiterate means BE IGNORANT OF A PARTICULAR ACTIVITY! Yes you may be educated but still be ignorant of a particular aspect of life! Most Nigerians are ignorant when it comes to which Church they should be attending and what type of pastors they should be listening to. You sound like an illiterate for not knowing you can be illiterate even though your educated. being educated doesn't mean you ain't an illiterate in the aspect of religion!

They're sins. Vanity
The Bible warns us not to be vain or conceited (Philippians 2:3-4) and not to draw attention to ourselves by the way we look
Leviticus 19:28
28 “‘Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.

Psalm 139:14
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Having Plastic/Cosmetic surgery is sending a message to God that you're ungrateful & don't accept the way he naturally created you. If it was plastic surgery to treat an illness/deformity, tumor, & other major health factors then that'll be different. 
The most commonly performed cosmetic procedures are Bosom  augmentation/lifts, liposuction, facelifts, eyelid lifts, buttock and other body lifts, leg vein treatments, botox/fat injections, & nose and face reshaping. When vanity motivates a person to undergo surgery, he/she has become his/her own idol. It is far better to work on beautifying the person underneath, (inside you) the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight” (1 Peter 3:4).

Being gay is also an individual decision... So does that now mean it's not a sin. Yeye Pastor  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
bros u finish work! So many fake pastors everywhere
