    The ones endorsed by Christ! What are the Laws of Liberty under the New Covenant in His blood?

    Understood in meaning, getting tattooed on behalf of the dead. So interpreted not for the dead is ok by Christians who get tattoos. Re: Leviticus 19:28. [ I do not personally agree with that view.]

    Decided by the Apostles at the Council at Jerusalem:

    10 Now therefore why make ye trial of God, that ye should put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
    28 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things:
    29 that ye abstain from things sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication; from which if ye keep yourselves, it shall be well with you. Fare ye well. Acts 16

    I do not see very many citing the commands of Christ. How about be perfect as God is perfect? I cheated and was made perfect in Christ! :)

    <sigh> The question was:

    The question is answered in Acts 15, Council at Jerusalem.

    None. Christ kept them all for me and He did so perfectly.

    Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

    Galatians 3:24-25 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

    Now, lest I be accused of being an antinomian, I will quote: Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

    There are plenty of works for the elect to do after regeneration but they are not done for merit or for reward; no, they are done because God ordained the works by His will and for His good pleasure.

    Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

    It is marks for the dead (from my understanding ANE pagans did not get tattooed merely for decorative purposes).

    More importantly is this applied to Israel (like how they kept their beards, dietary laws, clothing restrictions, etc.).

    We keep the moral laws (10 Commandments). We no longer keep the dietary laws. The regulative laws of a nation are decided by whichever government God has put in power over a region.

    The 10 Commandments are moral laws which God has brought in to the New Covenant.

    Acts of the Apostles 15:19-20, ". . . Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God. But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood. . . ."

    Meaning we never rest? It's sad if we don't take time to rest and be with God.

    Christ Himself is the Christian's Sabbath, Hebrews 4:10, ". . . For he that is entered into His rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His. . . ."

    Perhaps my response was lost in translation. I was agreeing with you that as a whole we don't take a day to rest with God.
