Here is one that our present culture in America definitely won’t like.

“Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.”Leviticus 19:28

I believe that God had a reason to place this verse in the Old Testament – He feels strongly about us marking up what He has created.  We should not forget that we are made in His image.  Why would we modify what He has made?

I did some research on tattooing, and what motivates people to get them.  For some, it is to display their pride in something.  For others, it is a sign of rebellion.  But I also discovered that getting tattoos can be addictive – once some people start getting them, they can’t stop.  That sounds dangerous to me – and not from God.

Do we have any reason to believe that God has changed His mind about this topic, just because we no longer live in Old Testament times?  Big tattoo…or little…does it matter?
