«§» 14 January 2013



At a service held yesterday, Sunday January 13th at his church auditorium, Pastor Chris Okotie told his members (a few of them LIB readers :-)) that tattooing their body or even undergoing plastic surgery is not a sin before God.

He said a lot of people misinterpret a scripture in the bible which is supposedly against body art and enhancement. He said getting tattoos and plastic surgery is an individual decision and has nothing to do with God.


What are your thoughts on this?

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

And why do your women wear minis and tight cloths to attract attention. Your dress is totally different with the dress you were taught to wear why?

The only thing that is a sin is not loving your neighbour and not loving God. Being gay is not a sin. Gays were created by God.
