What do you think? Tattoos create quite the controversy amongst Christians, but what does the Bible say about them? Craig Groeschel from Lifechurch.tv examines scripture to address this age old question...

The Lord said that we should not make no mark on our bodies. I watched the tape and what this man cease to say is that God told us that a FRIEND OF THE WORLD is an ENEMY of Him. James 4 vs 4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Adulterers and Adulteresses in this context means SINNERS. Tattoo, creaming of hair, ears piercing etc are all of the world. We should not be doing them when we said that we are BORN AGAIN. Our BEAUTY will shine through with the LOVE we have for Christ. We should also remember that the LAW OF MOSES couldn't give us life but it is there to show us our SINFUL NATURE. Let us keep this in mind. Hugs and blessings

If we know the Bible, we know that tattoos should not be applied, because that is to deface the body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. It doesn't really relate to the prohibition in the Hebrew scriptures about "do not gash yourselves."

Whoever said above, 'getting a tattoo doesn't make me a sinner,' is right, of course. We are all already sinners, and getting a tattoo is sinful only when you get it to disrespect God. Having a tattoo that says Jesus is Lord is a misguided idea, based on what I wrote at first, but one Christian who has no tattoos should not look down on another Christian who does have them, because that goes against Christ's commandment, which is greater than having or not having tattoos. What commandment? Love your neighbor as I have loved you.

We have no excuse to judge our neighbor for having tattoos or not having them. Everyone must be left free to make his own choice.

Too many pastors and too many crime. If you got some TATTOOS before you repent what happen.Huh?? If the so called christians believed that it is only through their RELIGION alone that one can make to heaven. ( Its only through Jesus christ one can make heaven. What will happen to those whom are not CHRISTIANS?Huh?Huh??) With or without TATTOOS you make heaven from you heart and not you tattoos. Grin

Everything we do is "of this world". If you're so keen to be a friend of Yahweh, maybe you should leave.
