Scientists Reportedly Discover Gate To Hell (picture) / Chris Okotie - Tattoos And Plastic Surgery Are Not Sins / Christain View Point On Long Hair, Tattoos, Body Piercing And The Way We Dress (1) (2) (3) (4)
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by oludy: 9:19pm On Jan 27|
To further expatiate my point above, check out and read thoroughly Hebrews chapter 7 - 10.
If the old covenant/law/commandment has not been done away with, then we are all in big poo because all the laws of Moses were pure bondage. Even the Israelites could not cope.
But Jesus came and fixed all of that at once. Check out some highlights below from Hebrews and you will be amazed.
Hebrews 7:11 Now if perfection had been attainable through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need would there have been for another priest to arise after the order of Melchizedek, rather than one named after the order of Aaron?
Hebrews 7:12 For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily a change in the law as well.
Hebrews 7:18 For on the one hand, a former commandment is set aside because of its weakness and uselessness
Hebrews 8:13 In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.
The truth is Jesus's commandments are even harder to follow but ....it's the only way.
For example, fornication is done when you look at a woman lustfully in your heart without physical contact, no divorces except on intimate immorality grounds etc. no more eye for an eye....
That's why I asked if Jesus said anything about it.
What I know is the old law forbade it, but if you have it already before becoming a disciple of Jesus, you need to know that Jesus doesn't look at the past. Just don't do it again. Remember, old things are passed away, all things are new.
But morally, I think's way off the line. Doesn't appeal to me.

I'm not a fan of tattoing myself, but we have a measure of free will in this reality of which I have gratitude to the creator for.
To my own mind, tatooing is ok. One is exercising their free will to make changes to the "costume" to which they were brought into this world with. It is part of ones learning experience in this life, and that experience (during and after the tatooing) might help them expand their awareness (i.e. whether it was a good idea or not to do it in the first place!).
Regardless of changing the costume you were born with, Living in spirit is what counts, no?

if you have tattoos then you going strait to hell buddy....If you believe in that kinda stuff.....your body is precious to God, and he needs it for some reason.....dont you read the holy bible? you better get that tattoo off your body before you burn in hell fire....
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by gzib(m): 1:32am On Jan 28|
@poster, please read Lev21:5...nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
God made us perfect and our body is suppose to be the temple of God.if you say you are a Christian and you went ahead to put a tattoo then I will tell you to consider your ways well. If you did it when you are still in the world and you have repented then God is not looking at it as a sin. It is same thing as most of us that were marked because of tribe identification or whatever.when people like that become Christian they will not be proud of the markings but will live a normal life after that. But, God knows the heart. You can deceive me but not God. if you have truly repented then it is no big deal. God will be more concerned about you mind and heart than your body.
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by GooseBaba: 3:42am On Jan 28|
honey001: Ask yourself this simple question, will Jesus tattoo his body, or do u read in any place that he Jesus had tattoos? Actually, there is no single that God cannot forgive once u realised ur sinful state and come to him in true repentance, becos the Bible says the time of ignorance God winked at and it's calling all men to come to repentance. It's assumed you are ignorant of the word of God while having ur tattoo on, but immediately u come to the Lord for forgiveness of ur sins sincerely, God will surely forgive u, if the tattoos can be cleaned, go ahead and clean it, but if not, leave it, just continue living a holy life as dat is the only thing that guarantee making heaven.I dey laugh...where in the bible did you read that Jesus did not have a tattoo? Una go just dey talk anyhow...The fact that you believe in a God that sees it as a wise/just punishment for his creation to burn for eternity for not passing his test says it all...Mental slavery..White man go sell you and you go give am change...

2me,I don't think havin a tatoo on a part of ur body is a determinant of goin to hell,tatoo can be said 2b a kind of fashion that has eroded our societies long time ago, its imbeded in our culture and its as old as human society itself.
In d olden days,pple paint their faces,body,@d time of war,warlords/warriors do make sum painting in order to scare pple. If we shud say tatoo wuld make u lose heaven,wat about dos wu write their names on their body in order not to 4get in d olden day yoruba society. D only think I think culd be d reward 4dis action is mere gossip,if d norms/mores of d society condemns tatooing,then d reward is severe as its a mere gossip or certain folkway,as in taboo !
Only God can Judge whether any1 wuld make heav en or not !
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by ehispapa(m): 6:49am On Jan 28|
yeah ...Christianity means Christ kind of life, and its written all over the Bible. Read the book of john for a start. can see you dont read ur bible.
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by FXKing2012(m): 7:48am On Jan 28|
I've said it several times that getting a tattoo on yiur body is a sin but no one is certain it can land anyone in hell because not all sin leads to hell. This is explicitly and expressly stated in the Bible.
1 John 5:16-18
King James Version (KJV)
16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
It is advisable to abstain from tattooing because of this scripture:
1 Thes. 5:22
"Abstain from all appearance of evil."
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by kandiikane: 8:43am On Jan 28|
What the..?! Are you telling me many of you believe your God may burn you for tattoos? What about cultures that use tattoos as part of their identity. Na wa for una oo. I guess many Nigerians with slashes on their faces and bodies are may go to hell because they've 'destroyed' the temple of God.
What nonsense! Abeg, you've got to speak to your God oo because it's quite mean that many Nigerians may to go to hell for slashings.
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by kagel: 9:46am On Jan 28|
my view here is for you to go to Leviticus chapter 19 vs 28
just read it and obey the instruction given to you by the creator of heaven and earth
God bless you as you but them in practice
Ghettoguru: The bible says God is love but I keep wondering if that is entirely correct seeing as some verses condemned things like tattooing one's body. Also, I had gone through some topics about christian views on tattoos here on nairaland and some christians seem to be 100% sure & even comfortable with the idea that anyone who tattooed his or her body is a sinner and should be thrown in hell on the judgement day.

cant u comprehend simple english?
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by kennykool4u: 10:09am On Jan 28|
you have better relationship with hell if you have it on you. but if u confess your sin, you will never be condemned
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by kandiikane: 10:30am On Jan 28|
kagel: my view here is for you to go to Leviticus chapter 19 vs 28That same chapter says a woman is unclean during her menses, meaning you shouldn't come near her. Do you send your girlfriend or wife packing to her parents or into a bush when she's on her period?

|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by eriegua83: 11:52am On Jan 28|
I know u re a sinner nd will go to hell because according to u any mark or drawing on d body is a one way ticket to hell and you have argentina 3 brazil 3 on ur face.
Ayomivic: Can you imagine what the world is turning into ?I can't believe that christians too,whom our lord Jesus warns to be wise as a serpents and be harmless like dove can fall too to the tricks of Satan by supporting things like this.
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by thisisjonny: 2:56pm On Jan 28|
Ayomivic, God bles bless you for this wonderful post. The Devil has done alot of havoc already by convincing Eve that God was not truthful when he warned on the danger of eating the forbiding fruit. Satan is still using thesame strategy today to push more people to hell by legalising sin. 30 years ago, Palming was a sin, drinking alcohol was not right for Christians, keeping boyfriend and girlfriend was sinful, going Unclad on the street in the name of fashion was an abomination. What do we have today?, All of that are now acceptable. God had probably changed His mind and reduced His standard. But will that not amount to Him being unfair? What about those that lived 30 years ago? A Warning for all: The Lord know those that are His and the foundation of the Lord standeth sure. Let everyone that nameth the name of the Lord depart from iniquity. Be warn.

|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by franklyn555: 7:20pm On Feb 01|
as the bible says the body is temple of GOD, but if tempered with i think can still be forgiven. that is why he called a merciful GOD........ but truly looking into tattooing,,we christians judge many things on our own,, actually we serve a merciful and ever loving God...
in my own opinion what ever we do out of ignorance is always forgivable by the most high.
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by alienvirus: 7:45pm On Feb 01|
born2fuck: Leviticus 19 vs 28 "Do not cut your bodies for the dead, and do not mark your skin with tattoos. I am the LORD.Will using a moniker like born2fork lead to hell?
|Re: Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by franklyn555: 11:35pm On Feb 01|
if after FUNICATION, ADULTERY, LIES, KILLING and all sort of sins where forgivable,, why dont u think that also drawing of tattoo if is a sin can also be forgivable......... or is there a sin that is bigger than the other? cos i believe all sins are equal... why are some people quoting bible instead of to tell her to pray for forgiveness as tattoo is a sin...
that why he is God of mercy and love... always ready to accept those who acknowledges their sins.
