Read the thread on smoking. so what are your thoughts on Tattoos.
I just got a new one by the way
If the Lord wanted tattoos on people they would have been born with them.
There are at least two OT passages that perhaps deal with this, one is negative--Deut. 14:1--and one is positive--Is. 49:16.
Of course, both of them are "subject to interpretation."
Then you have the same injunctions people have noted in my "Smoking" thread such as abstaining from ALL appearances of evil in 1 Th. 5:22, and the "whatsoever's" In Phil. 4:8.
Any deeper theological insights on this, I'll not make. That's up to the more eminently qualified BB theologians. :thumbsup:
My new one is on my forearm it"s there for me more than anything else, it say's DO YOUR BEST, TRUST GOD, AND NEVER QUIT ISAIAH 12:2 & 4
I don't see any problem with them. Just make sure if you want to get that cool Hebrew tattoo you check with a scholar as opposed to Google Translate.
I always ask people what the purpose of getting the tattoo is? Are you glorifying God or self or someone/thing else?
Isaiah 49:16 is not a positive statement concerning tattoos.
just as a reminder
One of my co-workers has a tattoo on the back of her neck. She tells me it is the Chinese symbol for strength. I told her it was the same symbol at the Chinese restaurant for Kung Pao chicken.
She replied, "Really?" :laugh:
but the main question - is it acceptable for BB members to get a tattoo of a RABBITS
You go first.
Not authorized - I have never been the recipient of a Rabbit award.
Well, cannot help you there. Not authorised to issue them.
If witchcraft should be translated medication/drugs, then I suppose tattoos would be wrong in and of themselves as well (in exclusion to a pagan use...i.e., marks for the dead). I don 't believe this, and probably you'll find the same lines being drawn here (if we are all consistent).
If I ever catch a rabbit, I'm going to give it a tattoo!
It will say: EVAN6589
U thank u've gut a hair's chance of gittin' 1???:tongue3:
They do have tattoo equipment for rabbits. :thumbs:
I say amen to that. But at the same time, to each their own! I wouldn't do it, but there are many things I do, that you and others would never think of doing nor want to do!
The only problem I have with them is
1. How much money people pay to get them
2. When tattoos are on people's faces.
I've seen a tattoo of a rabbit where the belly button was....well....it was one of those tattoos I believe one would live to regret.
