"Don't be afraid of tattoos." POPE FRANCIS by buttlover(m): 3:57pm On Mar 24, 2018
The pontiff said tattoos could be used by young priests to connect to people they were trying to reach out to because tattoos often communicated information about a person.

Speaking during a meeting with young people at The Vatican, Pope Francis gave the example of Christian girls in Eritrea where a tattoo of a cross on their forehead were used as a symbol of beauty and religious faith.

He said: "The Eritreans for years made the cross here (the forehead). Also today we see them. The cross was tattooed."
He added: "Don't be afraid of tattoos." The tattoo could spark conversation and provide a way for a priest to find out more about an individual and connect with the "culture of the young", he explained.
Pope Francis said: "Tattoos often signify membership in a community.

I have a house mate who is Catholic. He seems to be disappointed at this Pope and even says the Pope is a false prophet and an Antichrist but still he sticks to their doctrines.

Many Catholics are disappointed in him. They don't trust him because of the statements he's making these days.

He acts false a lot.

The office of the Pope is the office of the false prophet to the Antichrist.

By all means satan must use his agents in all guises to propagate his rebellion.

Here is what YHWH says about Tattoo and if the Pope were a servant of YHWH he'd know to preach against it.

Leviticus 19:27-28
Do not cut the hair on the sides of your head or trim your beard or tattoo yourselves or cut gashes in your body to mourn for the dead. I am the Lord.

Someone shd pls read that verse to the Pope.

But saying it is bad for christians to have tatoo is not scriptural.

Jesus did not abolish any law, but he made us to understand that some laws cannot be enforced.
You can't force people who want to tattoo not to tattoo.

You left out the part it says that one shouldnt cut the hair on the sides of their head or trim their beards cause it doesnt suit you. Thats called cherry picking.

Going by that verse, billions of christians who trim their beards are on their way to hell. check mate

Indeed, but why should a Christian who ought to submit his body as vessels for righteousness see tattoo as the next step ?

lol,

you guys and cherry picking the Bible unto your own confusion.

verse 27 says not to trim your beard or the sides of your head...I am sure you don't obey that passage, yet you are quick to accuse the pope of been a false prophet because of an old testament passage that no sane Christian obeys.

remove the log from your eyes.
