How many of us can hear and or read the word of God that is completely contrary to our way of life and we are not convicted? It’s amazing how some of us can read the word of God that says do not fornicate, commit adultery, lie, still, bear false witness, be a drunkard, etc and know we do some of these things on a regular basis and yet are not in the least bit disturbed.
God commands us to SEPARATE from the sinful world and not to help them by befriending their wickedness. Tattoos are worldly and as can be, and the businesses that sell them are demonic.
The simple fact that tattoos are always obtained from heathen worldly sources proves that they are of the Devil. They do not realize what they are doing has its roots in witchcraft and the practices of false religions. Tattoos reflect wickedness, rebellion. In fact, many Christians defend themselves saying they have used tattoos as a way to express their faith. But is this true? Those who defend and promote tattoos have marked their own bodies and want others to join them in their often rebellion-laced decision.
Many professing Christians have tattoos: Most professed Christians have no fear of God (Matt 7:21-23) which the Bible says is a sign of an unregenerate mind (Romans 3:18). a rebellious and stiff-necked people prone to sin. Body marking and face piercings were traditionally done by the surrounding heathen tribes who didn't know the God. Tattoos is common among worldly men and women, among prostitutes, among witches, amongst street gangs and punks (thugs), among criminals, street gangs, smokers, drug addictors, fornicators, lesbians, homosexuals, rock-n-roll artists, among the ungodly and worldly crowd. They are spiritually blind and they justify their disobedience to the Word of God by twisting the Scriptures to justify their lifestyle. They preach the doctrine of devils by preaching the false gospel. They keep one foot in Gods word and another foot in devils world. They enjoy everything in the world like heathens yet they say they are Christians? Some of them even defend tattoos because they themselves are living in rebellion or wickedness, and they want the people to join them in their rebellion and wickedness.
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.1 Corinthians 10:21
There is no single Christian who has ever received a tattoo neither Jesus Christ nor his disciples. How ridiculous and absurd to claim that God approves of tattoos, when Leviticus 19:18 clearly prohibits such demonic practices, "Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD." God never changes so his commandements are good for both old and new testament. The truth is that God told us that getting a tatoo is a sin and He expects us to continue to follow that commandment today.In 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 we read that the body of a Christian is a temple of the Holy Spirit and that we are to honor God with our bodies.
Anyone who claims as a Christian yet follows world ways are not a true Christian Because 1st John 2:15 says "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him."
We are commanded by God to preach the truth, never compromisingly for any reason whatsoever. We are to love everyone, but love does not mean that we should stop hating sin. . As true believers, we must stand uncompromisingly against the works of flesh , darkness and works of Satan.
Mankind has a sinful tendency to rationalize evil into good. It is important to notice that of all the believers who sinned in the Bible, not one of them attempted to justify their sins. . Believers will be held more accountable to God if they are deliberately sinning in the knowledge of the truth. Only when believers walk in the Spirit of God can we live righteously. 2nd Corinthians 5:10 plainly warns that every believer will stand trial at the Judgment Seat of Christ, to be judged according to his works (i.e., the good and the bad). Nowadays, churches are full of professing Christians who think it ok to keep one foot in the world, and enjoy the pleasures of this world.
Many Christians think that just because it says in one verse that 'if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord then you will be saved', all they need to do is just that and they will be saved. But what did the devils do? ...... Luke 4:41 .....'And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ. As believers, we are commanded by God to "COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, and BE YE SEPARATE, SAITH THE LORD.
Many have prophesied "in the name of the LORD" (Deut. 18:22), but "they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD" (Jer. 23:16).
But their faith is not real, not genuine. Their faith is based upon feelings.
Genuine Christians are taught to "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses" (1Tim. 6:12).
We are taught, "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (Heb. 10:23).
If any one profess to know God, and His Son Jesus Christ. They will be busy in seeking his will in every area of their life not yielding to their personal opinion but for Gods opinion.
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who KNOWING the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, BUT HAVE PLEASURE IN THEM THAT DO THEM. Watching/reading/listening to these things is having pleasure in them that do them. The bottom line is that when we participate as willing observers we are having pleasure in sinners who are sinning.
Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall NOT inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionists, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
And such WERE some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
When a person enjoys these things, they are in the flesh. And when they get mad at those who tell them this truth, it shows that they are in the flesh. And, "if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live." Romans 8:13
The carnal mind has the lust for tattoos and body piercings, fleshy desires, They will do anything which God commanded not t do.All these ungodly habits doesn’t glory to God.
The Bible tells us that we are to be a good example, showing others the love of Christ through our behavior and life styles. We should do all we can to bring others into God's Kingdom and never do anything that would cause a person to stumble in his Christian walk. You need to choose this day whom you will serve. You can serve God and ask Him to clean up your life, or you can continue serving your own fleshly desires which leads to indirectly serving devil.
No sin is excusable or permissible in the Christian's life. God hates all sin and wants us to forsake all sin as his children. Wicked men know about God But they refuse to honor and thank God, refuse to obey his commandments and laws. The wicked people choose to against God and then God allows their sinful desires to control them. These wicked people refuse God's truth, prefer lie and justify their wrong doings.
There are lots of people who fail to acknowledge their sins, faults, mistakes or wrong doing. They are unrepentant concerning their sin, often rationalize and look for excuses to justify their sins. They make every attempt to justify their wrong doing and claim that there was nothing wrong in their doing but the Holy Bible Clearly says it's wrong. There are lots of professing Christians living spiritually defeated lives because of their unrighteous acts such as adultery,lust,temptation, addiction to tobacco,smoking,drugs, immodestly dressed women, drunkenness to gambling, divorce, living together, premarital sex, pornography, sexual perversions etc , they tried to justify their sin gradually develop a rebellious spirit.
Smoking /chewing tobacco etc does not glorify God. Smoking or tobacco chewing becomes addictive which makes a slave out of those who use it, it is a bad witness for the Christ, it may be harmful to others, and causes for our weaker brethren to stumble.
So many people today are committing horrible sins, twisting the Scriptures in a sinful attempt to say, "I have done no wickedness."
God DESTROYED the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because of their wickedness as an EXAMPLE to all who would live ungodly.( 2nd Peter 2:6, Jude 1:7).
Those who claim to "love the Lord," and yet follow worldly things in dressing and in every thing testify to little more than their lack of discernment and confused loyalties. They put their personal reputation and the integrity of their Christian witness at risk. The Bible speaks of those that are "double-minded," and warns that they are "unstable" in all their ways and receive nothing from the Lord (James 1:7, 8). More serious, particularly in the church, they pose an unholy distraction and a stumbling block for others. Many professing Christians may even appear to have a real excitement and love for the Lord-however, their body is sending out a totally different message.
Some even justify by saying it applies for Old testament , Most Christians like in pick and choose the bible verses to follow and ignore. The Old Testament lays the foundation for the teachings and events found in the New Testament. First, the Old Testament is of great importance to Christians because it is inspired of God (2 Tim. 3.16-17). Some Christians ignore the Old Testament and focus on the New, but only those who read the New in light of the Old can really learn what God is saying in His Word. The Old Testament provides a fore shadow of the blessing revealed in the New Testament (Hebrews 10: 1).
The spiritual Blindness is caused due to the effect of sin, a work of the devil and Leads to all evil. When God’s people do not obey Him, He allows a spirit of blindness to come over them. The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14
